I 2nd this. I'm here now. Food court selections were not as good as I remember. Odd choices and very minimal. And the station on the far right wasn't even open. It was shut down! Not sure if its gonna remain shut down the whole trip? But that's where I'd get my fave lo mein! But its gone!
If you have questions let me know.

So I went through my trip pictures and notes and guess I didn't take any of the Pop meals, or else they didn't come out. I thought I had. Anyway, for dinner on our arrival night, the kids had flatbread pizzas (one cheese, one pepperoni), DH had a sloppy joe and I had a Mediterranean flatbread with spinach, artichoke and feta. The boys did not like their pizza at all, it was soggy. DH liked his meal and DS10 actually had a sloppy joe for lunch the next time we ate there. My flatbread was pretty good actually. We much preferred the brownie sundaes we had for dessert

When we had lunch there, I had a tuna sandwich which I liked -- although this is what I meant about not having normal sandwiches -- they had a turkey "dinner" sandwich with cranberry sauce and stuffing, but not just a plain turkey sandwich. And the tuna was on a multigrain croissant, which was just strange even though it tasted fine. It wasn't flaky; they should have just used multigrain bread.

One morning when I wanted more than the dry cereal and granola bars we'd brought, I went over to look at the options. When we stayed at ASMovies, they had a breakfast sandwich but nothing at Pop like that. Plenty of omelets and pancakes but nothing small and quick. I ended up getting a chocolate croissant, which was very good, but I was really hoping for something more protein-rich.

(And I never did see the tie dye cheesecake. I wanted to try it, if only for the novelty factor)


Edited to add: I found a picture of my flatbread on my husband's iPad. I got it without black olives.

Glad your husband and son liked the sloppy joe. I was wondering about that one. I've never even heard of a multigrain croissant. Just sounds weird IMHO. Flatbread sounds like an option for us. They better have tie dyed cheesecake when we're there. It was always one of my favorites though from new pictures I've seen it doesn't look like how I remember. Has anyone tried the King cupcake? I'm not a fan of mock banana flavor and wondered how the custard on the inside fared. Hope you're having a good trip regardless.

No more chocolate chip pancakes?????? My kids will be so sad No Reuben flatbread, no personal pizzas, no chicken nuggets, no Mom's Night out fried chicken.......what on earth!!! If they've gotten rid of the Breakfast Platter my husband may just stay home LOL. I'm glad we don't have a lot of meals planned at POP this year.

I just did a search and do see they have a Reuben Stromboli, but another change is the TieDye Cheesecake is smaller . Like a cupcake size.

I had the pepperoni pizza bread and the make-your-own-burrito at Pop just after they changed to the new menu. I enjoyed both.

I also had the King cupcake. It was really good with the peanut butter. The banana flavor isn't too strong - it tasted close to real banana to me and seemed alright.

It seems as if they are trying to make the menu more exotic, maybe because of the success of Landscape of Flavors? I am all for the changes and addition of new items, but I agree they need to keep some staples in place. Not everyone is an adventurous eater. I personally love everything, but I kinda liked that you could get more 'worldly' options at AoA and more 'classics' at POP.

We used to love the Pop food court (we've stayed there 8 times). The new menu is AWFUL and we're so disappointed. Gone are great classics (beef & bleu & turkey sandwiches, lo mein, cheesesteak wrap) replaced with odd things like sloppy joes (which were nasty) and a spring roll served in a hot dog bun (what IS that)? I'm an adventurous eater, and I appreciate interesting food, but they just did this all wrong. Plus, the cast members are clueless, extremely slow and very inefficient.

I don't know why Disney doesn't leave well enough alone sometimes. They get rid of popular items, it seems, for no particular reason (other than maybe food cost)?

I agree with this. I was at the food court again today and experienced the same thing. Food is crap. staff are slow and incredibly disorganized. Its awful!

Yep they changed that back in July during our stay. We got a slice at the beginning of the week that looked like all of the pics and such that I had seen of it prior to the trip. It was oh so yummy. Went back at the end of the week to have another slice before we left and all they had was the new smaller version. It was still pretty good but not nearly as tasty as the first one.

Well I'm glad we're not eating at the food court a lot this year, I'm sure we'll be able to find a couple of items to satisfy the few times we have meals scheduled there. I'll miss the big cheesecake and the Reuben flatbread.

This bums me out. Luckily I'll be surrounded by all things Disney and will put me in a happy place no matter what. I am 6mths pregnant so I'm hoping there will be something to satisfy my hunger lol. I think maybe a few trips to AofA will be a must.
