I'm a dedicated vegetarian but as of today I'm going to do my best to go vegan so this thread is great.

Thanks Danyella, I've been prepping for a couple of weeks slowly weaning out dairy (cheese being my downfall).

Chef TJ is still doing his magic, now at Park Fare. We ate there in October.

He walked me through the buffet, and then brought special appetizers, main course, and desserts for me. I'm a pescatarian, so you'd definitely get something different from what I got, but I'm sure it'll be tasty.

Chef TJ at 1900 Park Fare

We ate at 1900 Park Fare on Nov. 11. Chef TJ walked me through the buffet to let me know what I could eat (I am also a Pescetarian).

He surprised me with some veg spring rolls and warned me not to eat too much at the buffet. Then he came out with the famous "tower." YUM!

The spring rolls were delish, and the veggies on the tower were perfect.

He took a picture with me, which I will spare you, and told him he was a legend on these boards. I was so excited to meet him, and was totally spoiled with these goodies.

Have you tried Daiya brand vegan cheese? While we use it sparingly, it's been very well received around our house and by friends who are not vegan. It melts beautifully and is great on pizza, nacho chips, lasagna, etc.

How great to hear that Chef TJ is still working his magic!! He made me a birthday dinner in November of 2009 that I will never forget - SEVEN COURSES of vegan yumminess!! That's when he was still at Ohana's. People at other tables kept coming over to ask us what we were eating - it was all amazing. He really is a treasure.

Thanks for posting the Chef TJ food pics. Does anyone know his work schedule at 1900 Park Fare? We are trying to plan our trip and I wouldn't want to make a reservation for a night he doesn't work. Thanks!

They spent a full year designing the animal habitats before any animals were brought in, and consulted extensively with experts about how much space and what kind of environment each animal needed....

I have been highly impressed by the dedication of the CMs caring for the animals, and by the lengths they have gone to to provide good environments for the animals in their care. I enjoy visiting that park more than ever because I know the animals are happy and well-cared-for. Would it be ideal for all animals to be free? Yes. But one of the CMs said to me that people are more likely to care about animals they know, and giving people a chance to see these animals at Disney may motivate them to be more concerned about protecting them.

Sorry this is so long!

Thanks so much for your reply Teresa, I really appreciate it.
I loved the bit about the lion and his air conditioning! Some of our zoos in the UK are pitiful, despite animal welfare regulations...they make me want to cry

Thanks also to RKRose about chef TJ... that meal looks amazing. I hope he's still at Park Fare when we go, as I'm addding it to my DDP reservations short list!

Thank for the pictures of park fare! Looks like we might be going Wednesday and Sunday haha YUMMY!

are you both pescatarians who don't eat dairy? We do that as well. My bf was raised macrobiotic and they include small amounts of fish (usually) into their diet.

I've been working under the assumption that he is there Saturday through Wednesday....info via Vegan Satori from a few months ago. I made a reservation for Sunday night.

Nov 11, 2010 was a Thursday so that conflicts with the info that he is there Sat - Wed. Anybody know for sure?

Also, for those that got those wonderful special meals, did you call ahead of time to let them know you were dining there that night or did you just show up and ask about the vegetarian options on the buffet? That "tower" looks delicious!

Egads you are right! I just checked where I saw that to make sure I wrote down the right info... I did, but that was back in July. Is it possible to call a restaurant directly?
