Armand is one of our favorite CM interactions. We go to Les Chef every visit for his show. I've never seen anyone else handle Remy but him.

Has there been any reason given why they are taking him away? I can't imagine it is to send him to DLRP, I am sure Disney have enough money to make another Remy! This stinks! I can't understand why they would do this Perhaps they have something else up their sleeves? It does say he won't be appearing at Chefs any longer, perhaps he is just being relocated within the France Pavillion??

Does anyone happen to know what time the restaurant transitions from lunch to dinner? Is it 4pm? I'd like to try to fit in a lunch reservation so my children can see Remy before he leaves, but I haven't had luck finding this info.

Chef Remy continues his restaurant appearances Monday through Saturday his last day. His showtimes are at 12:30 p.m., 1:40 p.m., 2:50 p.m., and 5:20 p.m. Reservations are recommended if you want to dine at Chefs de France to see Remy. Taken from touringplans.com

The why behind removing him is probably the same as removing the entertainment from ohana and removing extra magic hours from 3 hours to 2 hours they want to cut man hours. Disney seems to be all about cutting any extra magic they can these days to save a buck! Sad but I believe it to be true.

I don't WANT to believe this, but it is probably true. I suppose Disney needs to pay for the Fantasy Land expansion with some cost savings here and there.

EMH is by far my favorite perk. I still hope they'll reverse this decision.

Sad to see little Remy is going away. We are eating at Monsieur Paul the 25th and dont get into Orlando till late on the 24th so I cant make a quick Chefs de France lunch. Sad to miss Remy for one last time.

That's sad, we had a great experience visiting with Remy the last time we were there. We were just in DLP last week and saw him in the restaurant he stars in there, and they definitely have their own Remy, so I can't imagine it is Paris related...

Maybe they don't want kids eating there as often.

Remy was such a fun, unique experience. My little ones ADORED him. I can't believe they're taking him away.

BRING. BACK. REMY.

Very disappointed. We're arriving on Nov 30th, and our very first meal of our trip is lunch at CdF to see Remy. Glad I didn't share this little gem of magic with the kiddos yet.....

Question Maybe not?

We went to CdF on 10/14 to see Remy since he was leaving. We had never seen him and were delighted by his appearance at our table! As we were leaving I mentioned Remy's departure to our waiter. He was surprised and shocked and stated he had no knowledge of Remy leaving. He also expressed doubt it would happen. Has anyone eaten there since Remy "left" on Oct 24?
