I like that it's trending on the Trending Topics over on Twitter, this is looking pretty good thus far.

I'm not sure why some people say Disney food has gone down hill in the last few years. To me it is the opposite, both full service and quick service. There are far less bland pizza, burgers and pizzas and a lot more unique foods popping up everywhere. Finally a finer dining option brings a sort of elegance to the park. Crystal Palace, Tony's and Plaza are all nice, nice but left a hole in the dining in the park.

Waiting for the full menu before I make any judgements.

Skipper, I think that some of the people complaining about Disney food going downhill are complaining because Disney's offering more than isn't hamburgers, nuked pizza, and fried things these days. To them, anything other than gas station food is "going downhill."

Robert: I agree with you completely. Menus at both Disney & Universal are large enough to satisfy most tastes. And the food is good for a theme park setting. There's less choice for the hamburger and pizza crowd, but I really don't want to even look at either when on vacation. Food is prepared for very large crowds, so I don't think it's realistic to expect a five star restaurant experience in a theme park. But, in general, the sit down restaurants do a great job, and some of the counter service restaurants are very good (Flame BBQ in Animal Kingdom as an example). And, if you want a really excellent restaurant experience, try the on site hotel restaurants at Disney & Universal. There are some outstanding ones out there.

The food sounds gourmet and, no doubt, with prices to match. I'm sure it will be a good opportunity to provide French food to the public, yet I shudder at the thought of the extremely high cost.
To feed such a large crowd, I suspect the food quality will be hotel or cruise ship standard.

Serieus? This is the awesome France 'inspired' cousine?
Where is the crème brûlée instead of a 'cupcake' and the pommes de terre instead of france fries. This is a huge disapointment.

Would it be the first restaurant in MK to serve booze? I know, I'm 16, but I discuss serving alcohol in that park as a good business move, like it is at Disney's other parks, hotels, Downtown Disney, etc.

Jorge, Walt wanted Disneyland to be acohol free, and that goes with every DL style park.

I'm saying this as a MK CM. I don't want any possibility of drunk and loud guest. Aside from being loud and generally obnoxious, they slow down loading and unloading of rides, ordering of food, purchasing of merchandise and produce, for sure, a lot more messes of all kinds to clean up.

Dominick: there is one exception to that policy: Disneyland Paris.

Minus that, I doubt MK will be getting booze soon.
