    Re: New menu for Cafe Orleans

    I am hoping that you can split a meal there without an extra charge. If the Monte Cristo is as big as it was at The Blue Bayou I could never eat the whole thing anyway!

    The Seafood Crepe is DE-LISH! The three cheese Cristo is so-so, and the Blackened Chicken Caesar Salad is as good as it always was at Bayou.

    So you've gotten to taste test everything? How fun is that?

    A kiddy Monte Crisco (j/k, Cristo)? I'd be ALL OVER THAT!

    (my stomach can't take all the grease of the entire sandwich, but a half portion would be PERFECT!)

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Re: New menu for Cafe Orleans

    I know everyone's going batty over this, but I can't help but wonder...will these prices and menu choices appeal to anyone -but- local AP's who like to splurge when they visit the park? (AKA us) Can you picture mom and pop from Peoria ordering -anything- with a 'zesty citrus aioli'? Even my wife, who is definitely finicky but not a burgers-only type, really doesn't see anything on this new menu that makes her want to eat there. (She doesn't do seafood...and there goes much of the menu.)

    You have to do the math on what's over in NOS now:

    Royal Street Veranda: moderate-low prices, very small menu, VERY small amount of seating (often held by people watching entertainment and not eating).

    French Market: Moderate prices, decent menu, plenty of seating.

    Cafe Orleans: Moderate-high prices, decent but semi-gourmet menu, relatively low capacity -plus- full-service (longer dining times and gratuity).

    Blue Bayou: Exceptionally high prices, gourmet food, full service.

    I'm seeing a gap here. While French Market doesn't have bad prices, two people are going to spend around $30 there if they get entrees and a drink. Cafe Orleans used to be the moderate-low price option on that side of the park, other than Hungry Bear's bland options way on down the line in CC. Now, that moderate-low price option is gone, leaving the crowded and tiny Royal Street Veranda as the only place around NOS where you're going to get away with food for one under $15 or so.

    I think that's a mistake, and I think the attendance at the new CO and BB will demonstrate that, with a menu change before the year is over. I don't think you'll see either menu change out completely like Rancho over in Frontierland has had, but I think you're going to see a couple of new lower-priced (and less exotic) sandwich options pop up at CO, and I think you're going to see a general price shift at BB, especially for lunch.

    Re: New menu for Cafe Orleans

    Mr. Dark,

    I see where your coming from with that. But honestly, the fact remains that:

    • Cafe Orleans was VERY rarely open before the change
    • Disneyland only had 1 sit-down full-service restaurant before this
    Granted I think they could have gone with a better choice in converting another restaurant to full-service instead of one directly across from the other sit-down restaurant. I would have liked either Rancho Del Zocalo or something else converted. Heck, bring back the Tahitian Terrace!!!

    I see this as a direct alternative to Blue Bayou. When the line for BB is too long they will inform people they can eat at Cafe Orleans. ALOT of people I know (not just AP's) want sit down restaurants.
