    Get rid of the princesses at Akershus, even for at least one meal.

    I agree with everyone else who said they wish the DDP would include tip again. I'm working on budgeting our meal tips out now and its such a pain. I would rather have the price of DDP be higher, and not have to worry about paying out of pocket while I'm there!

    My dream plan is three meals a day with entree and beverage. You also get an appetizer OR dessert OR adult beverage with meals other than breakfast. If you choose to forgo dessert, drink, or appetizer, you get an extra snack credit for later. Plan will still have the standard 1-2 snacks a day.

    Aww, the Empress Lilly!:lovestruc I went there as a kid-wasn't it a character meal?

    Loved the Handwiches too!! I think I read that they now have them in Carsland in Disneyland.

    Bring back beavertails and ring cakes from Kringla. These were so popular and yummy, makes you wonder why they were discontinued.

    I'd like to see back...

    Oreo Bon Bons, salt water taffy, and real Salad Bar (as in, make your own salad with topping and dressing choices) at Cape May Cafe

    Fresh caramel corn in a bucket at Sleepy Hollow in the Magic Kingdom

    Unique resort mugs that change every year

    DDP with gratuity and appetizer (never actually had this; didn't start using DDP till long after it was gone, but it sounds awesome!)

    Spaghetti and meatballs at POR's Riverside Mill (I love the make-your-own-pasta-bowl, but I used to love their spaghetti and meatballs there even more, and the make-your-own just isn't the same)

    Characters at LTT

    I have to second this. My hubby does serving on the side near a major sports arena. He had a party of 30 guests that he shared with another server and neither server had any additional tables sat. Their bill was over $400 dollars but the party was from Canada and tip $40. So that was $40 split and then in his restaurant he has to tip put bartenders, bussers and hostesses. He walked away with $15. It certainly wasn't that it was bad service as the party complemented both servers to the manager. They just tip differently and the party thought they were leaving a good tip. D

    So I could definitely see how with so many international tourists, the waiters' tips could get affected.

    I liked that the tip was included as well because you didn't have to budget extra.

    We also miss the hot dogs at Casey's and dare I say after all the starbucks branding controversy....I miss the McDs fries in the Parks. I loved that you could get one of those huge things and split it...definitely felt like smack credits went longer that way. And they were always so fresh...best tasting McD fries anywhere.

    I miss the Concourse Steakhouse at the Contemporary! It was where the Contempo Cafe is now. It was probably our favorite place to eat. :sad1:

    Bring back the reserved seating deal for the Finding Nemo Musical at Tusker House. Not dining, per se, but I really liked that option and could do without the characters at lunch.

    Get rid of the dining plan.

    Go back to making ADRs closer to the actual trip.

    Diversify the menus again.

    No more holiday pricing for buffets/character meals.

    THIS!!! And at the carts in the parks too. DS only wants Sprite, but I don't him having the sugar. And I only drink caffeine free/sugar free. Light Lemonade and flavored water get old.

    I love the idea to give an option for forgoing dessert and getting a snack instead. I don't always want dessert right away.

    But back to OPs original question...I want Figaro Fries back. Actually, I want dining overall back to the variety it was before the dining plan. It just seems like so many of the best and unique items are now gone or "neutralized."
