There is pasta. Gnocchi. And there's no meat on that dish. So make it 4 choices. And what about the fish? Could order it without sauce.

But seems like they didn't need to add bacon to the sauce for the fish-for those who eat fish and don't eat meat.

It already is on the menu.

Gnocchi with Roasted Vegtables
Eggplant, Mushrooms, Onions, and Squash tossed with Gnocchi, Arugula, Pesto, shaved Romano, and splash of Aged Balsamic

The menu looks good to me. My boys (12& 9) would like the menu but won't eat at CRT because of the princesses. Are they there at dinner?

People do. And if you don't, you go somewhere else. If you don't like the menu at CRT, pick another restaurant. There seems to be more and more of a sense of entitlement when it comes to dining that CRT, BoG, or what-have-you have some moral obligation to serve food that "everybody likes" whatever that is. These places serve good food. If it isn't to your liking, then you move along.
I agree with the first part of your post, but I disagree with the quoted part. It isn't that easy to just move on when you have to make your reservation 180+ days out. If I make a reservation based on the menu now, and then the week before my trip they change the menu then I wouldn't be happy either. That is one of the problems with this 180 nonsense IMO. Of course menus change and those changes will always come before or during someone's trip, but I can still understand being disappointed about it.

As suggested already I would look for other options, other restaurants or meals and just hope for a cancellation.

The lunch menu looks promising to me. It's the no options anymore for breakfast that I don't like.

The menu was on the Disney site. https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/di...l-table/menus/

We are visiting my parents who live an hour+ away and only spending 3 nights on site, 2 days in the park, and given that dd is five, we are only doing MK for those days.

And I agree with those who talked about the disappointment of making reservations early and then having a bait and switch with the menu. Yes, menus are subject to change, but I would expect a dish or two rather than whole-scale revamping. Glad so many others are pleased.

FYI--the Disney site shows choices still at breakfast, but there are no openings the 3 days we could do breakfast.

This is the plight of vegetarians almost everywhere, though. It's not limited to CRT. (I used to be a vegetarian, too, and I know how hard it can be to eat anything but salad and fries at some places!)

I actually didn't like the old menu so I had cancelled my ADR because there wasn't much there we would have eaten. When I saw the new menu I got very excited and was lucky enough to pick up someone's dropped ADR yesterday afternoon - so we are back on for next week. I am really looking forward to it again. To me, they made some positive changes - just my opinion.

While I didn't make our CRT reservation 180 days out, it was early enough. The main goal is to eat in the castle, for what is our first, and is probably our last, time. But I"m not going to shell out $150 for 3 vegetarian meals that are nasty, just to eat in the castle. So a menu change CAN really mess with a carefully thought out, long anticipated, plan.

FWIW, the vegetarian option before was a risotto, not an actual pasta.

And yeah, it's pretty common to just have one thing on the menu for a vegetarian. That said, Disney chefs are often very willing to help out, if the menu option doesn't please you. Just let them know and see IF they can do something.



mmmm, brussels sprouts...wonder if I could get a side of them with my gnocchi?



All that said, I'm still very much in the mode of believing NOTHING from the new website. The moment someone comes back and actually experiences that menu, I'll believe it. Until then, as far as I'm concerned, it's just the IT people playing pranks on us.
