I hope not. We found the AoA food court awful in selection. And what we did get there was not good at all. I ended up throwing most of it away. Pop has been voted the best counter service on property for years, if they go more like Aoa, then that won't be the case anymore. Of course we tend to mostly eat at the parks anyways, but I do want to have a decent selection if I decide to eat there.

I am excited about the menu change! I am staying at POP but planned on walking over the bridget to eat at AOA mostly. I like the healthier/more unique items offered at AOA. such a nice change from the same old tired selection they have had for years! the crab quesedilla (sp?) and the shrimp and grits sound fantastic! I cannot wait to try it!

I'm actually on my way back from Pop right now, and I just had the reply since I was so heartbroken over the menu change.

The chicken penne pasta dish was my favorite, and now you can still get Alfredo sauce on the cavatappi (sp?) noodles but be aware that the noodles are pre-sauced with either a chunkier marinara sauce or an Alfredo sauce of a different texture. When pre-sauced, they seemed bland and dry. I went back and just asked for plain noodles with sauce on the side. The breading on the chicken was also quite different and the chicken was much drier.

I was also very disappointed to see the breakfast potatoes go away in place of a cheesy potato casserole. It was still good but with my heart set on those breakfast potatoes I was so disappointed. The breakfast wrap was also replaced by a breakfast burrito. Similar concept but just not the same as before

I understand the need for change but since so many people seem to love the chicken penne dish... I'm surprised the overall menu changed so drastically.

Wishing for some photos of the new food ..!
Also, has anyone who has already been there know if you can get a "make your own taco" with just shell/beef/cheese? Have people who flatly refuse to have any veggies on their tacos. Actually, for that matter, on any sandwich!

Basically, it's a series of specials they run (ran?? They still doing them post-menu change?) during the week.

I was there last week. Did not like the menu changes. My DD & I had the new French bread pizza. We both threw it away. Didn't like the sauce on it at all. I tried and liked make your own tacos but only at lunch. I think the salad might be lunch only too. The adult tacos was 4 tacos. If I had gone again I would have ordered the kids meal with 1 taco. The parm chicken didn't look that good to me. The 2 dinners I had there I got the kids cheeseburger which was served on Petridge Farm whole wheat goldfish bread. They were good and probably a lot less calories then the Alfredo chicken I really wanted.

Yes you tell them exactly what you want on it. But only available til 4:30.

My friend got the nachos. She seemed happy with them but they were served on potato chips. Nachos should be corn chips.

Oh no, I am so sad Part of the reason we chose to stay there was the food. My dh loves the Chicken with the alfredo sauce and my ALL time favorite was the turkey chibatta sandwich.
