    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    No other online Disney community, not Disney, not even Alfredo's themselves...so far it's just intercot.

    So take it with a grain of salt until we have a corroboration.

    I was tempted to contact them. There is a "contact us" thing on their website for the restaurant chain.

    I can confim it will be permanantly closing August 31,2007. Final negotiation are being made for the new restaurant with the new partner. And the date set was to allow all advanced reservations to be honored. No reservation have been made after this set closing date.

    Aww that's a bummer. I will be there on April 12th and I'll make sure I enjoy every bite. I'm glad I made a reservation for this trip as I almost put it off til my next in late September. I would have missed it.

    I know someone who's going to really take this hard as it is his absolute FAVORITE restaurant in all of WS.

    Unfortunately, it is being reported on allearsnet.com. Pretty much right at the top of the page. Bummer...

    This is without a doubt my favorite restaurant in Epcot. I'm very sad to hear this news, I just hope they are not closing down the one in NY, I like going there too but it doesn't have the same atmosphere.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    This is so sad! Everything in the world showcase is changing, they take away my El Rio Del Tiempo - and no my Fettuccini Alfredo is gone!
