    Default LeCellier-Thinking I need a backup plan

    Monday will be my 180 day mark to make my ADRs....After a current poster said they were unable to get LeCellier during their December trip I am thinking I need a backup plan....can anyone who has eaten at these places recently give me an opinion and what would you pick:

    1. Coral Reef
    2. Teppan Edo
    3. Rose and Crown
    4. Garden Grill

    I'm not really feeling Garden Grill because I would like to do something different but I know it would be a safe bet food selection wise...just wanted a little more wow...a special dining experience for our vacation

    We have eaten in all the places you mentioned and I would go with Teppan Edo. We tried it the last time we were in the land of magic and loved it. Going back again in September.

    We weren't able to get into Le Cellier either for our next trip which surprised me - I thought there might be more availability with the switch to 2 credits. We booked Yachtsman Steak House instead.

    Teppan Edo is fun but we rarely do it at disney as its pretty run of the mill for hibachi restaurant and we often do them at home.

    My vote would got to Rose & Crown. We always enjoy our meal there.

    Faline, I have seen three or four Intercotees say they couldn't get LeCellier recently and I really wasn't thinking I'd have a problem with 180 days out.....

    Wow, Teppon Edo must really be good. I will keep that in mind Monday.

    I've spoken to a couple of CM friends. The reason everyone is having trouble getting Le Cellier is they are holding a huge block of reservations for CP packages (which have not yet been released). Not only was I unable to get Le Cellier but, for the first time ever, I wasn't able to get a single time for Rose & Crown for the entire week except for 1 night at 8:30 pm. It's the same reason. CP packages are holding everything up. Not too happy about that. So, you might drop Rose & Crown off your list too unless you like to eat late at night.

    Would you consider Captain's Grille as a substitute for LeCellier? I think the steak at Captain's Grille is very good.

    What is a CP Package? Is Tappen on the disney Dining Plan? I have never tried it but you all make it sound like it would be a good one to try

    Candlelight Processional. They provide reserved seating at this event to folks who have dined at specific restaurants but the reservation needs to be made as part of a Candlelight Processional package and is not available just because you've dined at the restaurant.

    It depends on what you are booking for LeCellier.. if for lunch (1 credit) i would try Teppan Edo. I have never eaten there but love the steakhouses around our house!

    If for Dinner (2 credits) i would suggest Yachtsman Steakhouse... This happened to be our 2 credit alternative for LeCellier.

    We would really like to stay in Epcot for at least one TS...however, just for giggles I did a search to see what is available 180 days from today...OMG, it is terrible half the Epcot eateries are not available...they have LeCellier, Rose and Crown, Coral Reef, Garden Grill, Bistro De Paris all blocked out and a couple others weren't available either ( I think Tutto was one also)...I am getting very nervous about this we may have to leave the park and that is a hassle....

    By the Way, my family liked the looks of both Rose and Crown and Coral Reef. It looks like a moot point though. I think this is a terrible thing for Disney to do. They are making extra money on the CP at the expense of their other customers. It should be first come first serve.

    it never occurred to me that is why I didnt see any of those! its a shame! but really if you end up NOT getting any of those on monday seriously look at booking Yachtsman (if you have 2ts credits to use)... its right near Epcot then if by luck the ressies open for those listed you can switch it up at that time. In the meantime you can at least know you are going to have a great steakhouse

    Well, we didn't want to leave the park and we didn't want to use two credits on this meal, so Yachtsman wouldn't work for us...it sounds great though.

    As it turns out, I took another look at the WS menus and printed Chefs De France out...My family really liked the looks of their menu so were are going to have an option that will make everyone happy. Actually, my son decided it might be better than LeCellier after all. We haven't eaten here in six years so I'm hoping it will be great.

    Its very funny how things work out really. We've had our ADR's picked out for months and have just been waiting until our 180 day out period which is two days from now. Not only have we changed our Epcot choice, we are rethinking some other ressies as well. We had intended to do RFC-AK for breakfast but they open well after park opening and we don't want to sacrifice any park time in the couple of hours after opeing, so that one is out. We will grab a snack in our room that morning. Another thing I am considering is upgrading our Fantasmic Package to Brown Derby instead of Mama Melrose's since we will have one less TS breakfast. I guess I'll see what happens Monday morning.
