Exactly. Lunch is now only a matter of timing. The menu and pricing is no different.

The all-day menu has been put in already at most, if not all, of the a la carte restaurants at DHS. At Epcot, Via Napoli already had an all-day menu.

Count me as disappointed. I guess we'll have to see what the menu shows, but if it is dinner prices at lunchtime, that will be enough to keep me away. Right now I have a lunch ressie and a dinner ressie (different days) for our March trip. I may be cancelling both after I see the new menu.

It's not just a matter of pricing. The lunch and dinner menus offered different choices.

My family prefered the lunch choices.

I'm pretty ticked since I have a lunch reservation for 1/24. Want to bet I don't have a lot of choices if I want to cancel and get a reservation at a different place at this late date?

I'm in the same boat as alot of other people. I have two lunch reservations for February because my wife and I loved the lunch menu and the prices were reasonable. If the menu is what they are saying it is (and no burger), we'll be canceling our reservations.

Will the Poutine served "all day" be the lunch version (blech!) or the dinner version (passable, but still a far cry from the real thing)?

Now that lunch will also be 2 dining entitlements I'm done with Le Cellier. I like it but it never was worth 2 entitlements for dinner. No big loss, there are plenty of other places to eat.

Since it's a Thursday in late January (which also happens to be my arrival day), I suspect you will find plenty of availability at the Epcot restaurants. Go for it.

Places that serve steak and cream cheese mashed potatoes? Do tell! I'm all ears.

I booked Le Cellier based on the menu that was offered at the time I booked. Is this change going to ruin my trip? Of course not but unless the new menu is the right combination of the old lunch and dinner menus, one of my children is going to be very disappointed as this has always been her favorite. She'll survive but she'll be bummed.

I haven't cancelled yet because Disney has updated their own website with the new menu.

Without the prix fixe option and the burger, looks like I'll be canceling my reservation for 5 in May.... very sad. I remember when the "free dining" first came out and it was such a huge bargain (appetizer, entree, dessert &tip), now it seems to be ruining everything.

I'm glad we got in for lunch while we were at WDW in December. We would do lunch so we had the option of the burger for those who are not that fond of steak. Now that that is gone, we will pass on Le Ceiller.

I'm hoping that someone who's down there this week will post pics of the new all-day menu.

I have a lunch ADR next Thursday as I've never been able to get in before and it's always been on my to-do list. We're on the DxDP so the fact that it's 2 TS credits isn't a huge issue, I just don't want to waste the credits, if the choices are really limited.

I'll be at WDW on Saturday but I don't know if I'll get to Epcot. Someone like Disney Food Blog may have the menu before then.

I would think it will resemble the dinner menu far more than the lunch menu. The Disney Parks Blog referenced too much lobster and egg for me (don't like either and I hate it when they put a poached egg in a salad) so I would be interested in seeing what else they have.

Even if the cream cheese mashed potatoes isn't served with the particular steak you want, you can sub. I've never had an issue subbing them for the risotto on the mushroom filet. They are still on the menu. I think they are pretty good at letting you sub. Even did this when it was two credits.

I agree, the burger is fantastic, my son would eat my fries with his filet and I would eat the risotto. Will have to go back to the filet w/ risotto, which I enjoy the filet just LOVED the burger more.
