  • Disney World resorts cutting Prime Rib from their buffet menus.

    In what many are seeing as an effort to cut costs, The buffets at the various Disney World resorts have been removing the delectable Prime Rib from thier menus and replacing it with strip loins.

    Scott Joseph's food blog for Orlando and Central Florida ( Food. Drink. Other stuff.: Disney Guests Ask "Where's the Beef?" Prime Rib Missing From Buffets ) writes the following:

    Disney Guests Ask "Where's the Beef?" Prime Rib Missing From Buffets

    Prime rib has been replaced on buffet serving lines at Walt Disney World restaurants with whole strip loins. The official, company line is that the switch was made for aesthetic reasons. Lenny DeGeorge told me that prime rib is not meant to be cut into small slices, which is how people in a buffet situation request it. He says they want smaller portions because they're sampling a lot of different things and don't want to fill up on just prime rib. And when cutting small pieces you can get a lot of fat.

    The whole strip loin, he says, is better suited for smaller slicing. So at venues like Boma, the all-you-can-eat walkabout buffet at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, the prime rib is out and the whole strip loins are in, and on the spit with the signature African blend of spices.

    But is that the real reason for the change? Could it be that strip loins are cheaper than standing rib roasts? Restaurants, even those at Walt Disney World, are trying to find ways of cutting costs in this depressed economy.

    DeGeorge says the strips are a little less expensive, but he points out that prime rib hasn't been banished entirely from the Kingdom. "We're still using tons and tons of prime rib," he says. You can still find it at such places as Olivia's, Boatwright's and Captain's Grill at the Yacht and Beach Club.

    And when he says tons and tons, he means that quite literally. He estimates Disney serves between 400 and 500 thousand pounds of prime rib annually. Just not at all-you-can-eat venues anymore.

    So watch that number to go down next year.
    Growing older is manditory
    Growing up is however, optional

    Should I bother with an analogy to the "single cause of every problem in Disneyland (tm)"?
