    The dining plan has struck again. It seems that because people on the dining plan were ordering items that were not available on the plan, some things have had to be removed.

    Lobster and escargot have now been removed from the menu.

    I spoke with Ricardo about this and he said that even though they were previously shown on the menu in red, people on the plan were still ordering and then arguing at then saying they didn't realise.

    So now everyone loses out as it has been taken off the menu completely.

    I wish Disney would just stop the dining plan or produce a separate menu completely for guests on the plan.

    Once again, the dining plan reduces an excellent restaurant experience to the mediocre.

    I must agree, there was nothing overly exciting on the menu last night. In fact Donna had a different menu that the other three of us and chose the vegetarian option. When the server, unfortunately not Ricardo due to an illness in the family, came to the table Donna asked her about it and was told that choice was no longer available. She opted for the new vegetarian entree, even though it contained squash which she managed to eat around.

    I guess I'm just going to have to settle for taking cruises instead of going to WDW. Not that that's bad mind you. At least on the cruise, I know what I can eat.

    Everything!

    This is disappointing. Why should people who don't do the dinning plan be punished? They either need to have separate menus for dinning planners or make more restaurants 2 credits if they serve items like Lobster and escargot. If not they may as well make every restaurant cafeteria style because that's what it's coming to. Well, maybe not that bad yet but you know what I mean.

    So is it no longer ok to buy dishes OOP if you're on the dining plan?

    yes you can i don't understand as those things were on the appetiser menu and you don't get appetisers with the regular plan. I guess people threw tantrums as they couldn't have everything they wanted so rather than upset the people on dining plans Disney has dummed down their menus.

    I must admit as much as I used to line the Yachtsman's I don't think I would go again. Admittedly we were unable to have the best server because of reasons beyond his control, but the one we had was useless. The menu was very limited and sadly the steak as so so. Chris likes his well done and has never had problem before but this time it was still pink. He didn't want to make a fuss so he ate it.
