Disney Issues Statement About Removing Complimentary Bread at Table Service Restaurants


A few days ago WDWNT pointed out a rumor that Disney was taking away complimentary bread at some table service restaurants across Walt Disney World.

People were not happy. Mostly because the costs keep rising and the experience isn’t keeping pace with the inflation. This seemed like Disney was trying to find new ways to cut corners without the obvious price increases. But customers had some opinions on that.

Here’s their statement:

“We are continuing complimentary bread service at all table-service restaurants. At this time, there are no plans to discontinue complimentary bread service at any of our table-service restaurants.”


However, according to WDWNT, it already was discontinued at the Coral Reef, until Disney changed it again:

“We checked in with Cast Members at Coral Reef Restaurant at EPCOT and they confirmed that while complimentary bread service was in fact removed for a few days, it was recently reinstated. Over at Tony’s Town Square Restaurant, the $9.00 garlic knots remain an option on the menu, but we’re looking to confirm with more restaurants as they open today to check in on the complimentary bread situation.”

The bread removal was apparently confirmed by cast members, and some management, at several locations across the park. Either they already had been told about it or they were told it was coming.  But, for now, they have apparently reinstated the complimentary bread. I mean when your meal costs $20-$30 a plate, bread should be included. It is at restaurants that charge 1/3-1/2 the price elsewhere.

If you would like to find out more you can do so at WDWNT‘s article on the subject. It is much more in-depth, and they are going to keep checking with restaurants to see the status of the bread.

What do you think? Do you think Disney is cutting too much? Comment and let us know!
