The price went from $130 to $250 and the menu is substantially the same. That's nuts! I was hoping to go. But for three people it went from $500 to $1000. Any way you look at it, doesn't make sense at all!

This Manu is laughable for the price. A complete letdown....

So no a-la-carte menu. That will upset a few people.

As someone who regularly eats “fancy” at WDW, I must be missing something. I’m not impressed with this menu.

What an utterly loathsome menu. I loved Takumi-Tei in it's original incarnation, this is just so completely disappointing. This has nothing to do with the price, but all to do with the completely dumbed down and boring menu. Give me an excellent meal and I will gladly pay for it. Compared to what it was, this is not it. I truly hope this fails miserably.

Monsieur Paul is looking like a deal when comparing to this menu. Just doesn't seem like much of a value here.

Prix fixe can operate like this as well (the Disney prix fixe options generally don't, though), unless there's a different term I'm unaware of.

Disney doesn’t set the prices for Takumi-Tei though. The Mitukoshi website doesn’t have the menu up yet. I think we’ll have to wait and see if there is still an a-la-carte menu option.

You know, rereading the release, maybe I read this wrong. I thought the only option was the omakase, but maybe it's just in addition to a la carte.

Omakase isn't quite the same as Prix Fixe. I get the complaints and comparators, but generally speaking the menu isn't fixed, its adaptable to what the chef feels is best any given night.
