WE have had both lunch and dinner there and definitely pick lunch over dinner. The last time we went we had sandwiches and if I remember I had the chicken sandwich and it was good. We did not enjoy the dinner skillet at all.

WCC used to be good. This makes me sad. We would go out of our way to travel there and dine there. Our last trip the meal wasn't very good but now with he new menu we will be eating elsewhere.

With the changes to the dinner menu, they now have plenty of room to accommodate anyone that wants to walk up. The restaurant has had less and less reservations since the menu has changed. People that work there have told me the restaurant was more dead this week around Christmas than ever.

This new menu idea isn't working out so well. Try again, Disney.

Its fine for breakfast since that is still ala cart. dh really liked his bananna waffel and the kids were happy. It is generally your standard disney breakfast fair and i prefer kona for the food but i didn't warn dh about the antics before we went there and he really enjoyed that aspect.

Seems like they are on a roll right now; WCC is now a must avoid with the new change, LeCellier is no longer the impossible ADR to get since going signature and making little to no changes to the menu and dining room, and Disneys new website is an absolute joke right now.

I am really glad they added fish to the family style dinner. We don't eat a lot of red meat, so now we get to have chicken and fish, and I did like the country sausage as well. I love the mashed potatoes. Our server asked us which desserts we wanted, and we had the cake and apple thing, not the cheesecake (she said it tasted like key lime cheesecake and she said that it was the best dessert - but we don't really like cheesecake...).

We used to go to WCC before the menu change, and we've just gone that one time after. Overall, it seems a lot the same, some variations with the a la carte offerings for dinner and no skillets during lunch may be causing people more troubles. It seemed to be really pricey, $75 for 2 for dinner, we've had some pretty decent meals for less than that with left overs.

That's what it is. Also incorporating a price hike for dinner. Plus the fact that it's a "gimmick" restaurant (as another poster pointed out).

And yes, two people eating off one skillet would be charged for two skillets on the old menu. It was a per person charge, not a per skillet charge. The new dinner menu does make that more obvious.

DH and I were there early November for dinner. While not terrible, not a place where I would make it a must do for ADRs. The food was adequate but would rather go to Trail's End for the same food and less the price.

We were in the back by the library which was quiet (we did not ask for back there) and our server was really nice but overall - not impressed with the new menu.

My DH and I are... Umm... were big WCC fans. We were really looking forward to it during our stay at WL last month. Until we saw the menu!

We walked up, looked at the posted menu, and then cancelled our reservation. The manager came out and I explained how incredibly disappointed I was in the menu, shared that I had heard people on the Disboards talking about the awful changes but that I hadn't looked at a menu until just then... So they know it's a problem but I think they need to hear about it over and over because otherwise its just one person!

I want my old WCC back!

Don't understand what the big deal is with the changes .... Are people mad about taking away ala carte or quality of food ? The skillet is largely the same as what they are offering now isn't it? You get 3 or 4 choices how many more would someone want? I have ressies there next month and trying to figure out what the big deal is

DH and I got a walk up ressie for Breakfast earlier this month.
When going over our ADR "wishlist" for our next trip he asked me to book a breakfast here instead of Kona.
We liked the breakfast but should also point out that we cancelled a dinner ADR there once the menu changes were announced.

I have heard the quality of the food has gone downhill in a big way while the prices have gone up quite a bit.

For us, I did not like the options in the all you can eat skillet and prefer ala carte options. A buffet is different because there is typically a large variety of foods but what they offered on the skillet for the price of the skillet was a major turn off to us. I think it's worse for those of us who loved WCC before because if you never knew any better, well... you never knew any better.

If you always order the skillet then perhaps it is of no big deal. I usually ordered the skillet but my wife and daughter never have. So for us it is a big deal and thus the reason we will not go back. I should also say that as a big fan of this place and having gone several times, the last time we were there the food was not that good and for the first time I did not care for the food qualtiy of the skillet. Perhaps it was just a bad day. But again, with only a skillet it eliminates my family from going back.

What is the "gimmick" with this restaurant? Is there a show or something? We have reservations for our trip in late January because I had heard that WCC has great food and is a lot of fun, but now I'm thinking that I should switch to something else.
