I have another question-

Should we even bother with the Food and Wine Festival? I heard last year they had a booth serving Gardein or something like it, but we only eat that kind of stuff occasionally and I am not sure if it would be worth the price for a little taste of some Gardein...?

Any vegetarians spend any time over there? As of now I am assuming we will just skip it all together.

I was wondering that myself, about the Food and Wine festival (during both Spring and Fall...we are lucky to hit both this year). Especially since I might now have to be gluten-free, too. I do occasionally cheat while on vacation, as DH and I are vegans for health reasons. But the dairy and gluten are killers for my tummy... and looking at the F&W stuff for the Flower fest this Spring, most items have either gluten or dairy. Mehhh.

Well, it doesn't cost you anything (other than the foods you buy). I am just back, and we went to Epcot last Thursday. In the Flower and Garden Festival building, the snack bar had a "vegan trio" that was very good (it had pita bread in it, though, so you might want to ask them to leave that out if you are gluten free). We also got the Frushi and the Watermelon salad as we were walking around, and both were very good.

from what I know: The garden booth did not do well, bottom 4 of the booths.

The vegan trio has couscous. Only thing vegan and gf is the frushi ( don't eat the whip) and the salads (without cheese)

There isn't a lot of food for vegetarians at F&W. There was more last year because of the Gardein items at the Terra booth, both of which were so good DH and I had them at least three times the week we were there. Here is what we tried at last year's F&W festival:

Terra Booth: Trick’n Chick’n Curry w/ rice $3.75; Chili Colorado, house made chips, cashew cheese $3.75. Both of these were very tasty. We ate each of these dishes a few times during our stay.

South Africa: Spinach and Paneer Cheese Pocket (V) $3.25. We enjoyed this too.

Cheese: Trio of Artisan Cheeses: Beecher's Flagship Reserve Cheddar, La Bonne Vie Goat Brie and Rogue River Creamery Echo Mountain Blue Cheese – $4.50. DH had this and enjoyed it.

Poland: Zapiekanki-Toasted mushroom, onion, cheese bread w/ house made ketchup $3.00. Disappointing.

Ireland: Kerrygold® Cheese Selection: Irish Aged Cheddar, Dubliner and Cashel Blue with Apple Chutney and Brown Bread – $3.50. DH enjoyed this.

Greece: Greek Salad with Pita Bread (V)$3.00; Griddled Greek Cheese with Pistachios and Honey (V)$3.25; Spanakopita – $4.00. We enjoyed all of these. The Griddled Greek Cheese in particular is very tasty and different.

We also tried a few desserts and some wines, including a glass of Neige Bubble in Canada which has become a sort of F&W tradition for me for the last two years. DH enjoys the beer offerings at the festival.

If your only reason for going to F&W is for the food, that will limit your enjoyment since you won't have a lot of variety. If you like trying new wines, beers and desserts as well, you will find enough things to try to make it fun. We've been going to F&W every year for a few years now and we always enjoy ourselves, especially last year with the Gardein options.

Thanks Lisa S. I guess it wouldn't hurt for us to check out the booths while we are in Epcot (not like we won't be in the world showcase anyway!). We aren't into wine, my husband does enjoy a good beer. I guess we'll see what they have to offer!

I ate vegan/gluten-free at Ohana and was stuffed!!!! They made me a dip trio, salad, tofu stir fry, bread, veggies, and dessert. It was awesome. I posted photos a few pages back. Breakfast was good too, they made a tofu stir fry and it rocked. Click this link for my post with photos.

We just stayed at the Port Orleans Riverside, and at the food court they made me a gluten free pasta dish that was great. The marinara sauce is vegan and gluten free (pesto has cheese in it) and you can add whatever veggies you want. You have to ask for the gluten-free pasta, but it is not a problem at all.

Great photos! Thanks. I also have a nut allergic daughter (and shellfish) and haven't tried O'Hana for that reason, but after great allergy reviews, we are going to try it.

I just posted this elsewhere....but I might have better results on this thread... Does anyone know the probability of getting the quiche for dinner at Be Our Guest? I'm eager to try the dinner option of quinoa ratatouille...but my husband would probably prefer a different veg option and would enjoy the quiche... Just curious.....

I don't know about the quiche... but I DO know the quinoa ratatouille was delicious! Very moist and flavorful, and as it wasn't covered in cheese or any other heavy stuff I felt great (although full) afterwards!

Veggie Burgers

Has anyone had the veggie burgers at Rosies, Scifi or other counter service lately?
We have not been since Jan/11 and we were not fans of the burgers that were available at that time.Just our opinions of course.
I miss the boca burgers! Just wishful thinking that they had brought them back.
Thanks everyone!
Kristin

I had a veggie burger at Rosie's in early December 2012, and I thought it was the best one on the whole WDW property.
