News! Monsieur Paul Menu in Epcot’s France

Update: Monsieur Paul will be a signature restaurant requiring two Disney Dining Plan credits per person. Guests with the Disney Dining Plan may order the Prix Fixe menu with two dining plan credits plus a $30.50 per person surcharge when using the standard dining plan; deluxe, premium, and platinum dining plan guests will be charged $14.50 per person plus the two table service credits. In addition, the regular menu does not feature vegetarian options. Please note your special diet information when making your reservation.

As we reported earlier this year, Bistro de Paris closed to undergo renovations. The table-service restaurant will re-open on December 11th with a new name — Monsieur Paul — which is a well-deserved nod to Chef Paul Bocuse!

While Monsieur Paul will be less formal than Bistro de Paris, the restaurant will still maintain an upscale and elegant atmosphere by capturing classic French architectural elements as well as personal mementos of Chef Bocuse’s culinary achievements in a contemporary setting. Servers will approach guests in crisp white shirts, purple ties, and long black aprons.

The restaurant will not only greet guests with a new name and decor, there will also be a redesigned menu featuring classic Bocuse entrees recreated with American ingredients. Let’s take a look!

New Menu Items at Restaurantosaurus, Pizzafari, and Flame Tree Barbecue in Animal Kingdom

Editor’s Note: The Chili and Cheese Dog is no longer on the menu at the Restaurantosaurus.

Once again, Animal Kingdom is re-vamping its menus with some wonderful results! Thanks to a helpful DFB reader, we’ve got photos and insights into new options!

You’ll remember when we reported a few months ago on the delicious and summery additions to the Bradley Falls Kiosk and Tamu Tamu Refreshments — now we’ve got some great updates to the menus at Restaurantosaurus, Pizzafari, and Flame Tree Barbecue!


Restaurantosaurus had a significant menu change, adding several new items:

Chicken BLT Salad
With a very light ranch dressing, this is perfect on a hot day! Crisp greens with chunks of tomato, baked chicken strips, bites of bacon, and a sprinkle of cheddar cheese. This salad is priced at $9.19 and — according to our reviewer — worth every penny!

Chicken Sandwich
The chicken sandwich ($9.59) had a tomato bruschetta topping with hints of basil and garlic, along with bacon bits and shredded cheddar cheese! This sandwich is served hot and is “just a perfect combination, thoroughly enjoyable!” says our reviewer.

Specialty Hot Dogs
Our reviewer tried the two hot dogs that are now a permanent addition to the Restaurantosaurus menu as well. The standard chili and cheese dog ($9.59) is topped with jalapeno pepper rings and corn chips, making it appealing to her and others who might like their entree a bit spicy!
