Thanks

Thanks so much for all this information. I am a picky eater and mostly veg, I eat seafood. I saw some menus and was a little concerned but this thread has so much information and gives me a positive outlook.

When do you tell them you are a veg, when making your ADRs or when you show up?

The only thing is that we get gypped sometimes. We are going to HDDR where there is unlimited buckets of fried chicken, or they give you one piece of fish.

I have three 'Ohana ADRs within the next few months, so I'm hoping he'll be there at least once! I'm going with my sister (also vegan) in March for three days, and booked a dinner ADR on the Thursday we arrive. Me and my boyfriend are going back in May, and I booked Sunday and Wednesday ADRs. So I'm crossing my fingers! If we go to check in and find out he's not there, we'll probably dine somewhere else.

It's definitely a good lunch option! It filled me up, but didn't weigh me down.

Thanks for reading! I hope my reviews were helpful on your trip

The only thing is that we get gypped sometimes. We are going to HDDR where there is unlimited buckets of fried chicken, or they give you one piece of fish.
For past trips, I've called and asked them to note that we're vegan on all of our reservations. And also that we have egg, dairy, and shellfish allergies. On our upcoming trip, I made ADRs online and there were only checkmarks for the allergies. So I'm going to call and get them to note vegan, and then call back a few weeks before our trip to confirm that it's all on there. Then once we're seated and our server comes to take our order, if they don't see it listed on our ticket, I mention that I'm vegan and inquire as to what I can order. Usually a chef is brought out to explain what I can have, or what he/she can make for me.

I think calling ahead to HDDR would help a lot. I've only seen one vegan review, here: http://bashfulvegan.blogspot.com/200...oo-hoopla.html

V_gan, can you do me a favor? IF Chef TJ comes out and talks to you, can you ask him what days he works?!?!?! I'm going to try for a Wednesday in hopes of getting him this time, last time the only day I could get was Saturday and he wasn't there.

Of course! We're going to the D23 First Anniversary Party next month, so I'll be doing a review on what we get at the Diamond Horseshoe Saloon dinner, and also 'Ohana (if Chef TJ is there).

In May, we're eating at many of the same places. But we'll be trying Mama Melrose's and The Wave, plus a few new CS restaurants and snacks. I'm not going another trip without getting some vegan ice cream on Main Street!

Thanks so much for these reviews!

I was wondering, are the buns for the veggie burgers vegan? I had read that they were not, but thought maybe you asked for a special bun?

No, they're not. And I didn't know that until I got back from our trip. You do have to ask for a gluten-free bun, as they are vegan.

Ooooh, D23 First Anniversary Party. I was debating on whether I wanted to join D23 or not. That should be very interesting and fun for you! I'm looking forward to your new reviews, especially if you're going to the Wave.
My husband and I are going again this October and we were interested in the Wave.

Hi
I saw Chef TJ in December, and he said he works Monday through Thursdays. He made me the most deliciious vegetarian dinner!!!

It seems like I read Sunday - Thursday! Well, on our upcoming trips, I've got ADRs for a Thursday, a Sunday, and a Wednesday. So hopefully we'll luck out with one of these!

Hi
Sorry, now I'm not sure, Maybe he did say Sunday and not Monday. I'm having a senior moment.

Oh, I hope so. I am going in June, so we will find out. Hopefully he is not on vacation.

Chef TJ was working on Sunday when my boyfriend and I went to 'Ohana back in August. We were told he is off Fridays and Saturdays.

Andrea, I am SO JEALOUS of you! I hope you can get Chef TJ one of those times. If you don't post any reviews, you're still gonna have to let me know how it went

I hope so, too! Only 6 more days until Chef TJ Attempt #2! I'll definitely have reveiws when I get back. We'll be back Saturday night, so I'll probably start my reviews a few days after that, when I get all my pictures sorted out.

I'm just about to go back to your reviews to see what I want to do on our trip in May. Jon is wanting to cut costs wherever possible, so I'm trying to pick and choose which TS restaurants to cut out and keep, and which new CS restaurants to try.
