Just ate there last week and the crab legs were there!! They honestly were the BEST crab legs I have ever had in my life. Sweet, not fishy and plentiful! Simply amazing! All the food there was excellent!!!

After seeing this thread, I posted the question over there knowing if anyone could confirm, it would be her since she works there .

My feelings exactly and while I read so many complaints about their crab legs not being "meaty", I can honestly say in all my trips there, I've never found that to be the case, maybe we've just been lucky .

Were they a dirty looking brown color or were they pink/red?

Pink/red plump and amazing! The flavor of them was just perfect and I'm very picky!

So glad to hear this! As I'm reading through the thread I'm saying "Oh no!" Same as a few others the crab legs were the main reason for this ADR. Guess it's another thing I'll have to keep an eye out for before our trip!

Thanks for all the detective work!!!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Our favorite restaurant at Disney - thought it was about to be our 'least' favorite!! Now, I'll keep our ressies! (If they leave the menu alone now )

Just checked AllEars menu - crab legs listed on there.....

So excited to hear the positive reports of crab legs on the buffet! We have always been impressed with them and this is a must do for my husband (and his post marathon dinner request) so I am happy to hear they will be there for the "foreseeable future". Thanks to all who reported back to us!

He said they also send a lot of their catch to Maryland.....red crab are bigger than blues, so they are in demand there. I imagine fresh crab has increased everywhere, and what remains constant is frozen.

I have no idea how WDW manages their food budget for any given restaurant, but I would bet a buck that if the item is off of the menu, but still appears, the manager is making a decision based on their market price, and does not want to be advertising an item that may not appear every day.

AS to canceling an ADR over one item, I would not. Either I like the food at a restaurant, or do not. I am from CT, and because we have access to excellent sea food, I very seldom even try any out of a steam table. YUCH! We went to CMC one time, and while it was okay, we never went back. Give me a freshly made seafood dinner any day over a bunch of stuff held warm.

I think you hit the nail on the head here. And FWIW, I called from work this morning and spoke with Guest Services Management. She assured me that they are no longer on the menu and there are no plans moving forward to return them.
