    No! Apparently melting butter is the same as warming a baby's bottle. They cannot do it. It is against Disney health code to give someone butter that isn't practically frozen with a steak!


    I really should've gone to Guest Relations... but we came in through the International Gateway. Oh well, maybe next time.

    ...And the fact that some of us would prefer Don Pablo's over Mexico's San Angel can only be further proof of our dissatisfaction with Mexico's overpriced restaurant.

Try their Jambalaya dish next time for a real kick in your taste buds!
    The Ale House should hire you as their spokes person, TDLFan! You always say to go there over anywhere else...but I agree with you that they do have good food, at a good price with huge portion sizes. That being said, I think most people on vacation will pay the inflated prices at WDW because they either arre afraid to leave the resort or want to try what WDW has to offer.

    I do not mind people leaving EPCOT early but I do mind that Carabbas is considered an Italian Restaurant! My stomach jumped out of my throat when I heard that!

    i love carrabas and macaroni grill and olive garden but they don't belong at epcot. the only restaurants I haven't eaten in at this point are le celier, and france. The morrocan restaurant used to have a belly dancer that entertained during the dinner hour.

    The thing is, it sounds like they're getting rid of TWO restaurants (one that did NOT specialize in Sushi) for ONE restaurant that has mostly Sushi.

    Here's the big mistake: A lot of non-Japanese won't touch Sushi. Or even go to a place where they think that it's pretty much just a big sushi bar. So, by demolishing a non-sushi and a sushi place in favor of a sushi place, I'm sure they're going to lose a lot of their non-sushi lovers.

    Also, it gives a rather skewed version of Japanese food. Sure, there's a lot of sushi, but this would only emphasize to many preconceptions that Sushi is all there is to eat in Japan!

    Can't they just continue doing what they've done for so long? Even we have a non-sushi Japanese seafood restaurant in our city... (mmm... I hope that has reopened! I really want a lunch box now...)

    Seriously! With soo many chain restaurants out there we grown accustomed to eating bland food from places like Carabbas, Ale house, Chilis, and thinking it really represents food from that region of the world.
    "He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them. But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side; if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion" --John Stuart Mill

    Well.. no one is arguing that those restaurants only serve food based on what they think it's the real thing and what have you... But the point being debated is not that, but this one: They are cheaper places to eat,with more selection, and in some cases...better quality food, than those served in WDW' over priced restaurants. If you think you are getting food that really represent the culinary flavors of each World Showcase nation at EPCOT, as opposed to the fare we get outside the property, well, you are then quite mistaken as well.

    I have had nothing but stellar food experiences wherever I have been in World Showcase. Truly, no joke...and when it comes to food, I know what I'm talking about. Having world-class, 5 star trained chefs in the family pays off. =)

    I had no idea there was so much hate for these restaurants until this thread... I have always VERY much enjoyed these restaurants and some of them are my favorite places to eat.

    Especially Le Cellier. Yum.

    And while they might not be completely authentic, reasons for not being are very understandable -- in some cases, that would make it even more expensive to eat there! Importing of every exotic food item that would be required just isn't very doable. Plus, we're adding the American taste buds to the equation. Wouldn't be good business.

    My personal tastes would be for completely authentic food, but I know it's not entirely possible.

    ITA! I think that for people who don't have many authentic ethnic restaurants available in their hometown area, places like those chains do seem really good... but for me, living in the Northeast and having a lot of authentic places all around... I can't stand and try to avoid those chains.

    As for the World Showcase restaurants- I eat there more for the ambiance. I think San Angel Inn is not that good, but the atmosphere is awesome... same for the beirgarten. Norway was neat, back before it was all princess all the time, since I didn't get exposure to that kind of food anywhere else. I've never eaten in china or japan, since I eat at local chinese and japanese places all the time and have no desire to try it at WDW. Italy was so-so to me... france was neat, again, becuase I don't have much exposure to it at home. I am trying canada for the first time in oct- can't wait!

    So I think that the opinions can have a lot to do with what you are exposed to at home.
