They would only bring one skillet but it was loaded with food for the number of people eating from it. Since it was all-you-care-to-eat they would bring more of anything you want. They didn't bring much so it wouldn't go do waste but they would bring more as many times as you would like.

So even though there was one actual skillet it was filled with food for two and you were charged accordingly.

The platter is an all you care to eat meal that is charged per person. If they brought the first platter for the two of you, and all you cared to eat was the one platter, you would still be charged based on the number of people sharing the platter. That is why you were charged for two people. If there had been four people who only cared to eat the amount of food on the first platter, the charge would be for four people. It's not really a good value if you are a light eater.

I typically only go to WCC for lunch because there aren't as many antics going on, and I didn't order the platter anyway, so I will probably continue to dine there.

We went last night to WCC, it was horrible. We had been in the past and it was one of our favorite meals. This menu change is very disappointing. The food was bland and overall just terrible. The desserts are a joke and you don't even get to pick which one you want -- they just put one in front of you. Who was the genius that picked this new menu?? Jalapeño cheesecake...yea it's that gross! Lol

On the plus side our server was good. I told him we were disappointed, he said he personally has not gotten a lot of complaints about the new menu, but he would let management know we were not impressed. Either other people have never been before the menu change or they like crappy food!

He said they changed the menu to allow guests to get in and out faster because resort guests were complaining they could never get a table. Well, if they keep this menu, I think there will be lots of tables available.

Last time we were in the world we were so impressed just by the smell of it that we tried to get in (even though it would have been oop when we were on QS free dining) and couldn't. We were actually very excited to go there on our upcoming trip until we read about the menu changes and quickly decided that it was no longer worth even a DDP credit.

I don't understand the logic behind this menu change. It sounds like a disaster. We were considering going there in January, but I think we might have to rethink that now

I think I might. Not because I want anything owed to me just to let them know how disappointing the change is.

I don't understand the logic of "we went to the skillet to make people get out faster so resort guests could get in." Why not leave a couple spots open for resort guests instead of changing the whole menu??????? Not everyone wants the skillet!!!!!

Are they going to do this at 'Ohana and Kona Cafe too? Have you ever tried to get in there??? It is the same problem. This isn't looking good for other restaurants.

Well, Ohana is basically that way already - the food isn't cooked to order, it is continuously prepared and served. And I don't think they could do that to Kona because that would leave the Polynesian without any traditional, cooked to order table service dining and I don't believe that would go over well in a deluxe-level resort.

People book WCC for the gimmick which puts it in the same realm as the character restaurants - food is secondary to the experience and is an easy target for cutbacks. Gimmick restaurants seldom have great food even in the real world, and that is even more true of gimmick restaurants at Disney World.

Just to clarify, the dessert is a Jalapeno-Lime Cheesecake... the lime to me makes it sound SLIGHTLY more appetizing?!?!

Also, check this out: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/jalapeno-lime-cheesecake/

I personally have not tried it but this recipe makes it sound not so bad...

Because holding tables is something a real deluxe hotel chain does not Disney.

This is really just an excuse to run more guests through. Disney is trying to hide behind "someone asked for it"

Bumping this up to see if anyone else could chime in since it's been a couple of months.


We are going in late January and have reservations at WCC based on the old menu, which sounded delish to us. We ate at Trails End in July and liked it, but was really hoping for WCC.

We just stayed 6 days there and did not eat at WCC the entire time. The buffet meal is too expensive and if I spend that kind of money, I will eat elsewhere. If they had offfered a la carte at evenings, we probably would have eaten there.
