Yes, true. When it comes to accommodating vegan and vegetarian guests, I don't really see what's so difficult about it. Omnivores eat vegetables too (at least I hope they do, lol!), so I'd be comfy with just eating the veggies that they have. Kind of surprising and disheartening that I've been given attitude, though.
Some of my experiences were just like in the Bashful Vegan's, where she said she met a chef at Crystal Palace that made her feel bad for being vegan. Actually, this isn't even so much of a vegan problem as it is a customer service problem. It happens, right? I mean no matter where you go, you're going to bump into rude staff.

Wow, I'm shocked about the Crystal Palace. We go twice per trip. In August the chef there sent someone to another restaurant to get tofu and made a special entree just for my sister because the vegan buffet items were sparse. It really just depends what chef is working at that time it seems.

I was surprised too, since I saw some vegan dining reviews where they all pretty much recommended Crystal Palace. To be fair, the review dates back to sometime in 2009...so the chef could be entirely different now.

Or maybe not. Maybe everyone has just been fortunate enough to go on a day where another chef is working? She did say the wait staff was extremely polite and nice, just the chef was pretty rude. I can see this happening to someone here and there.

I don't normally like to double post, but I wanted to share the latest Disney Parks Blog:

"Why We Love Kouzinna By Cat Cora"

Some really good information there at the top for vegans and vegetarians!

I've been curious about that place. I know a bit about Cat Cora and have read about a lot of neat things she has done.

Kouzzina

We wound up eating breakfast there twice during our stay! They had delicious vegan suggestions for me! I'm writing a review in the Food Reviews section - I won't be able to get to Kouzzina for a few days or so, but just wanted to say I was impressed!

I'm so glad you started this thread. I noticed they locked the other one and I figured that might be why. I'm glad we have a forum to discuss and help each other because this information is so invaluable, especially since there are so few of us who eat this way in the grand scheme of things.

I've been vegan for 4 weeks now, and I've really been researching my options for our trip in July.

Plasticletters - I do plan on taking you up on the offer to send you a PM about IOA/US and eating vegan there. I definately would love to know all you know about the topic.

We will be there for 14 nights and our vaction is split into two stays at Pop Century.

The first 5 nights we are planning on doing 1 day Sea World and 3 days at IOA/US (1 day at each and a half day split between both parks). My husband has agreed to do lunch at Moe's at Citywalk on the 3 days we are at IOA/US. One of those nights we are planning on eating at Boma's. This is our only sit down restaurant of this trip (which is very unusual for us, because prior to last year we did 2 TS per day on most days - except AK). Last year we did the dining plan and this year we decided to do the QSDP.
One of the nights my family wants to go to Hooters, and there is nothing on the menu I can eat. I'll either grab something to bring in with me, or just have a drink and then grab something at the hotel or one of the other hotels after they are done. The other two nights I might need to eat in the parks, unless we leave earlier in the evening to eat somewhere else.

The other 9 nights of our vacation are at Disney using the QSDP. I've been making a list of all the restuarants and the only thing I'm worried about is AK. I may leave the park and go to AKL for lunch by myself or see if I can call Pizzafari and ask if they can get something special in for me. I sure wish they had a counter service option for vegans at Tusker house where you could get a to-go tofu or vegie stir fry. Something simple and just a small counter service sized entree. I mean they have so much food over there that is vegan.......but really not a lot of good options for vegan's or vegetarians in the park. Woud be nice if they offered a to-go container for those who really wanted and needed it. Other than the two days I'll be eating lunch at AK.......I'm not worried at all. Plenty for me to choose from. I'm over the sadness I felt at first for giving up the non-vegan treats. I'm sure when I'm there I will mourn the zebra domes I can't have (heck they weren't even vegetarian anyway, so I couldn't have them this trip anyway).

I'm going to ask for fruit as a dessert for most of the counter service meals unless they have divvies or other vegan options.

I've been making a list of vegan snack options. I'm actually excited to try a few things I have never tried, like the organge slushy at MK, a candy apple (I've always eaten caramel ones) a Kaki Gori, one of the frozen teas in China, the candied nuts (had these before and always loved these), peanut brittle (hoping I can find a place I can get these as snack credits), divies cookies, divies caramel corn, frozen strawberry and pineapple bars from ice cream carts.

Looking forward to the discussions on this thread!!

Here is a vegan guide to Disney that I read before that was posted in 2008 on the Veggie Boards.

Some of the items are no longer available (like the cinnamon apple pretzels in DHS), but most are. I think it's good to continually check on what is and what isn't.

I was just doing some more research this morning and found this link again. One thing on there that I remember sounding exciting is the banana slushi at the Herbie Drive-In over by Lights, Motor, Action. On All Ears, it's still listed on the menu but the menu is old (March 09). Hopefully they still have it because that sounds really good.

Thanks for sharing this! I was trying to find something on the veggie boards relating to veganism in Disney, but apparently I really don't know how to search too well (lol). Kind of sad that those cinnamon apple pretzels aren't still available - they sound delicious.

Also hoping that the banana slushie is still there, since I am a huge banana flavor fan. I will check for it next time I'm there, though I'm sure some of you will be there before me (October is my trip).

Yeah - I'll be there at the end of July, so I'll make sure to give a full report on snacks, lol.

Does anyone know if the bread at Earl of Sandwich is vegan and what if any sandwiches there anyone has tried to veganize? I think there are two vegetarian sandwiches. If the bread is vegan, it would be easy to just leave off the cheese.

Awesome question. I'm really not sure - I'm sure someone does, or I hope so. Bread is probably one of the hardest things about being vegan...though, I wonder if they have any gluten-free bread at Earl of Sandwich? I know the veggie burgers can be ordered with a gluten-free bun, but not sure about the actual bread for sandwiches.

Does anyone know if the mushrooms and onions on the topping bars vegan? I read somewhere that there were not, but then I have seen some vegan food reviews and people have gotten them.

I was told by staff a Starlight Rays that they ARE vegan....if they're not I'm gonna be upset! It would be odd to me if they weren't vegan (I guess they could have sauteed them in butter...but that would be costly and pointless, they seem fried in oil to me).

Yeah - thanks for the info about the bread at Earl of sandwich.

I have read about the mushrooms and onions not being vegan either. Maybe long ago they weren't? Glad to hear they are. I agree, it would be silly to cook them in anything other than oil.


How about vegan items at Wolfgang Puck Express? I'll have to look at the menu again. When I was going vegetarian, I knew what to ordr but now.........not sure at all.

Just found this thread - Most of the same info, but who knows you might find something new in there.

Like this - I might enjoy a salad with chickpeas as a protein


Monday: went to Animal Kingdom and enjoyed lunch at one of the quick service. I forget the name but it was near the new dinosaur rollercoaster. Amazing salad - romaine, roasted red peppers, kalamata olives, tomatoes, pepperoncini, and chickpeas. Vegan cookies, and fruit cup.

This is definately not listd on All Ears yet, I'm assuming they meant Restaurantasaurus.
