    Same here Keith :( the ADRs we have with our friends will be OK because they are all booked with the children in mind, but the ones we have when we are on our own will definitely be cancelled :( when I think to all the trouble I went to convincing Chris to eat on site ................ I could scream :lol: :lol:

    Perhaps there should be a set menu for those with free dinning. After all I pay for my dinning plans because I'm lazy and don't like to have to set money aside for food at the parks. And for the price I pay I should be able to get what I want when I go.

    Conversation:

    ME: Good morning, I actually don't need to make any ADR's, I believe were all set for upcoming trip...however I was wondering if you could confirm or deny a rumour I heard over the weekend.

    CM: I'll certainly try!

    ME: I read through a reasonably reliable source that restaurants in Disney World are removing the FM/BT from the menus as of this weekend. Can you confirm or deny this?

    CM: LAUGHTER. Lots and lots of laughter.

    ME: The thing is, we have an ADR at Le Cellier during our stay and if the FM is no longer there, we may wish to reconsider our ADR.

    CM: More laughter. Ma'am, you do understand that Le Cellier is a STEAKHOUSE, right?

    ME: Yes ma'am, I do...I'm just trying to be as informed as I can be, so that we don't turn up at the restaurant and get disappointed...do you understand my position.

    CM: still giggling.... Absolutely ma'am, but they are a *STEAKHOUSE* I hardly think they could take steak off the menu.

    ME: Well there *are* other cuts of meat. But what I hear you saying is that you've not heard anything about it?

    CM: No ma'am I haven't

    ME: And if it were the case do you think you *would* have been apprised?

    CM: I really can't say ma'am. But I've certainly not heard this.

    ME: Ok, well thank you for your help.

    CM: Yes ma'am and thank you for calling Disney Dining.

    I'm not sure I know anything more than before I called. :rolleyes: Maybe I should called Le Cellier direct. Can you do that?

    Weeeeelllllllllll I mean, I think I'd probably laugh too TBH :lol:

    Thing is, it's Disney and they do daft and completely improbably things now and again :( I'm especially wary that free dining period is upon us and I can totally see them ditching expensive items

    I'm SOOOOO hoping the rumour is a load of rubbish though I really am

    They couldnt get rid of steak altogether at le cellier or YSH and places like that surely, just the filet cut though, maybe...

    We need someone at disney now to take photos of some menus for us so we can see for sure

    No expert by any means, just close enough to check things out from time to time! :D

    I wonder if I called the Dining line and asked them if they had information on the menu for Le Cellier? I could "play dumb" and ask what sorts of cuts they had as we were only interested in filet, and if they didn't have it we'd need to find somewhere else to dine? :unsure: Or is that too underhanded? :unsure:

    I don't think it's too underhanded at all...at this point, I'd argue that we are a bit "dumb" in the sense that we *really* don't know if they have filet on the menu.

    I reckon they'd say yeah of course it does. We often get completely wrong information from the dining line

    Yes. That's what stopped me. Can't tell you how many times I've called them and been given the wrong info. :rolleyes2:

    When I'm down there I'll check the menus. :yes: That should be definitive!
