It actually seems like I would be starving after eating at this restaurant and have to go to another restaurant . . .

I didn't realize duck was supposed to be tough. I guess every time that I have had it, the chef must have cooked it wrong. LOL

Wait . . . Are you in trouble now?

I Got served rubberized duck. Complained and got sassed because "duck is usually tough." No intentions of returning, especially with a prix fixe menu.

It seriously was one of our big let downs. My wife could cook better roast...

I agree. But the question is do they have lasting power operating this way, Im not so sure. People are going to draw the line at some point if they haven't a bit already. Maybe not the castle since thats in the middle of the kingdom, but some of these others not sure how well they are doing or going to do exactly.

I love Flying Fish but it’s still very pricey for what you get (again, still delicious)! Jiko, my comparison, is one of the only exceptional WDW restaurants at this point that doesn’t annihilate your wallet. The Prix Fixe menus from Be Our Guest to Cinderella’s Royal Table, and from Monsieur Paul to California Grill and beyond have in my opinion destroyed any value which they used to have. I’m not spending over double I would normally per person: it’s absurd. I get it, Disney knows they can fill them up to pretty much the same degree while maximizing the profit per person, but to me, it’s these changes that destroy affordability and make me feel like I’m being scammed. Charging for Fastpass? At least it adds value to my vacation, and for a family of four, I could get it for two days for under $240 during peak pricing. Prix Fixe can literally add $200 extra to what is already an expensive meal with no value added. I’m not a cheap person, but I am efficient and hate wasting money. I’ll go to Tokyo Disneyland, but I’m absolutely not flying 1st class because it offers so little additional value. Same for the Grand Floridian over the Swan and Dolphin, as they are comparable other than the ‘status’ aspect. Likewise, I’ll go to California Grill, but I’m not dropping money on a prix fixe menu now that it is one. I’m fortunate to be able to afford these things but there is still a cost-benefit that must be made. Everything I try to do is within reason. Space 220 is even worse than those, as at least most of them have good food. Space is pathetically bad. It’s stuff like this that makes me feel like WDW is a tourist trap while Disneyland just doesn’t and is by contrast, a breath of fresh air!

Wagyu Strip Loin available for an additional $47. 😂 Pretty soon, $89 is going to be a cover charge. Then the prix fixe menu can go away. 🤔

Elevated fast-food... go elsewhere :).

Its all about food cost right now for every restaurant anywhere. Limited menus reduce inventory costs, cut food waste and better deals with suppliers can be negotiated.
