    I read somewhere that in addition to the DDP killing all the FM from the menus that WDW was gearing up for a beef shortage that will be coming as early as next year. Anyone else hear of this?

    I really can't see them taking FM from all the menus starting in August. I can't imagine chefs (and WDW has world renowned chefs) complying with this new "rule". I think they would sooner raise prices or change the DDP to not include some cuts of meat or make you pay extra.

    I'm curious to hear how this pans out.

    Funny phonecall Beccaberry! :lol: Wonder if they'll put you up for funniest call of the shift??!!

    I just don't know. It seems utterly crazy to me but then again I went to the Callifornia Grill one evening and there was no potato of any kind. No fries, no anything. Everything was on a bed of some vegetable thingy :lol: I asked could I get any kind of baked potato or SOMETHING, nope. ok could I just have the steak without the bed of stuff, No. In the end I said could you tell the chef I have some allergies please knowing he'd come out and chat about it. He (dont know if he was head chef or not) came out and really did a whole number about moving to a healthy menu knowing they'd lose some people along the way but that was just how it was. The next time of course, everything was back on the menu. So I don't discount the possibility that they'd do something as stupid as removing the most popular thing on the menu

    I can be as snobby and obstinate as the next person, but a LONG time ago I decided that I'd give up having my food/drink according to any set out ritual and if I want my steak nuked with a side order of fries covered in salt then that's how I want it thank you very much. I may even have a glass of WHITE wine with the steak *shock* :lol:

    In other words, all this "change for your own good" thing really annoys me

    Yikes! This could be the nail in my already shakey November/December WDW visit--not to mention future visits! :eek:

    Looking forward to Tink's report--and Nicki's, as she'll be there soon.

    Like Keith, I'm a very picky eater. I don't like foods mixed together and I frequently dislike the way veggies are prepared at restaurants. A fillet & baked potato usually are pretty safe! WDW already has changed the menus at most of their TS restaurants to favour those who like more highly seasoned foods, essentially locking out those of us with simpler tastes.

    At the rate it's going, WDW just might remove itself from my vacation sites in the future!

    Yes. I want what I want when I want it the way I want it when I go out to dinner! :lol:

    If I want fried oysters, then I'll have them please. If I want my tuna COOKED and not fashionably seared only, then COOK the blasted stuff!

    I'm not a neanderthal when it comes to food, thank you, but I know what I want and how I want it prepared!

    Do not force your opinion down my throat. :wink:

    Wellllll this one still isnt proven. Im still hoping that it's totally false

    ...but I think they just feel that they can push up the prices, reduce the benefits and if people still come then great way more money! If people don't then they can pull things back a bit :rolleyes008:

    I hope so.....otherwise I will be cancelling our ADR we have there and eating offsite. Not going to mention it to DH until we get a positive report....this is the one place he chose to eat at and specifically for the filet mignon.

    The rumour was that they were being withdrawn starting this last weekend just before free dining.

    ...but still no real confirmation so still possible it's just someone overreacting

    Well then apparently, that qualifies her to be a CM. Congraulations Alysia.

    Although I did read a few reports (a food and leisure site, not a Disney site) that said they noticed it gone from the menu over a month ago....
