Cream cheese mashed potatoes are not on the dinner menu and I'm sure the steak my daughter likes is much larger on the dinner menu.

I know..right? That was one amazing burger!! I would have gotten it instead of the filet next time. It was that good! Can we start a petition to keep the burger?!! I'm sure people wouldn't mind paying OOP for it instead of using 2 credits.

I made a lunch reservation after much debating back and forth about dinner vs lunch pricing...and then saw this news 10 minutes later. Bummed out! Hopefully the new menu info is available soon so I can make a decision on whether or not to keep my ADR.

That's what I'm wondering. I really want to try the "dinner" version so I hope it is the all-day option. I'll be at LC for lunch a week from tomorrow so I guess I'll find out.

Have you ever heard they saying "there is no such thing as free lunch"?

The original DDP was a great value...never "free" , but offered a discount for committing to a certain number of sit down meals for a trip.

Then they removed the appetizer, gratuity, and kept the price the same (and then raised it over the years)

Then they start using "free dining" as a means to attract guests at off peak times. This leads to several "unintended consequences". Now, during "free dining " times- even though off season- it becomes impossible to get a PS, and also, to make "free" dining profitable the menus of the restaurants have been downgraded year round.

I've come to the conclusion that the DDP is not really a bargain, just a way of pre paying. Even when "free" you are giving up potential room discounts, etc. I simply don't need two or three desserts per day- even on vacation. I'd rather save money on the room and pay for meals...Example this year we got 30% off at the BC...,now I can have lunch at the brown derby and order the prawn appetizer and a Cobb salad- total about 26 bucks amd a perfectly fine meal, vs 2 ts credits.

If you're looking at the link that was posted earlier, that is not the new menu.

there's no indication the new menu (which is to be released today at the restaurant apparently) will be exactly the same as the former dinner menu. But they may not have less expensive options available like a burger.

I hope they still have my new favorite dessert- Pecan Pie on the rocks. It is amazing. Had it for the first time this past December and was able to snag a last minute ADR for marathon weekend to have it again.

Mashed potatoes are not listed anywhere. The poutine is the "dinner" poutine.

And yes, it is now going to be the same menu for both lunch and dinner.

. . . not fully correct
. . . the restaurants do not pay for Free Dining
. . . in fact, they have nothing to do with it
. . . the RESORTS pay for free dining in the room rate
. . . the room rates were raised all year to pay for FD periods



I'd rather save money on the room and pay for meals[/QUOTE]
. . . as listed above, you are subsidizing Free Dining

IMO the menu is again designed to appeal to those wanting the best value for dining credits rather than what people touring a theme park will want to order for lunch in 100 degree heat.

Sorry but signature to me does not have to equal such large portions and meals. All of the lunch options are simply too rich with sauces and heavy on red meat. We enjoyed the salmon and several of the app's that are no longer on the menu. This already happened at HS and we did not care for it at all. At least at Brown Derby there are still 2 decent salads, the new salad with egg does not appeal to me.

Oh well, another reservation for someone else. I have a feeling getting a reservation will no longer be quite so difficult.

I just cancelled our lunch reservation. Oh, well. I guess we will nibble around the World instead. Actually, I'm looking forward to that.

That stinks that the lunch Mushroom steak went from $25.99 to $46. As much as I love it, I can get better at home, so it looks like no more LeCellier. We haven't been in a couple trips. Plus the kids liked the Chocolate "Moose" and that looks to be gone too....

With this and Ohana also changing menus, the list of must do's is shrinking.

Any other major changes at any restaurants?

the chocolate moose is not gone. It is listed with the kids' meals.

If I can get in (might not be a problem) I think I'll try it. No salads with egg for me though.
