Misleading

The title to this thread is a bit misleading. It is not a VEGETARIAN thread AT ALL. It's a vegan thread. BIG DIFFERENCE when one is not vegan. It took me 8 or 10 pages deep into this thread to realize there's nothing vegetarian about this thread.

Seeking vegetarian foods at Disney is a lot easier and different than finding vegan meals I'm sure.

Weird. I don't see that. I forget that it isn't a vegan only thread and find myself constantly surprised by talk of meals with cheese in them! Then I remember it is a vegetarian thread too.

Maybe it is because as you have said, it seems very easy to find a vegetarian option right on the menu at most locations. Vegan is trickier, and requires more investigating!

This is both. We equally help people looking for information for both vegetarian or vegan. But as you said, it's a lot easier so not as many ask about vegetarian. Many meals can be made vegetarian , just by asking to leave off the meat. It's a little trickier for vegan. Actually there are quite a few vegetarian pictures and talk a few pages back.

We are equal opportunity here. If you would like some vegetarian help..........please let us know We'd be very happy to help.

Going to echo what everyone else is saying. The vegetarian help is pretty scarce in this thread, but I think that's because Disney does such a great job at making sure vegetarians have at least one option on every menu. I think it's great that they do that. Jiko actually have both a vegetarian and vegan menu, separate from their regular menus which is really awesome. I wish all the restaurants were like that.

Speaking of Jiko, I am taking another trip this August and while I have always wanted to go to Jiko, I noticed that their vegan entree is a bit different now. It's roasted vegetables. I have nothing against roasted vegetables, but whenever I think of roasted vegetables well...I sometimes picture something bland. For $26, that also seems a bit steep. So my question is, has anyone had this before and is it worth the price?

Do you have a link to the new menu? Last year's was so good. I'd like to see what it is before I pick that as my birthday dinner in July.

I have a (probably dumb) question about dedicated fryers.

When dedicated fryers are mentioned (like at backlot studios,) I presume that means they fry no meat products in them -- only veg-friendly stuff. Or is it only the french fries? Is this something I need to ask for specifically or do they automatically segregate?

I've been veg for going on 20 years (!!!) and am finding out there are areas in which my knowledge is sadly deficient, lol.

Thanks!

I think we all learn new things every day so no worries!
I think dedicated fryers means that they are dedicated to just one item - like for french fries, as you said. I would probably ask a cast member though, just to be on the safe side.

Thanks!

I am one who hates to inconvenience anyone more than necessary. I will definitely ensure that my needs are met and speak up if need-be, but I always hate to go to trouble due to my dietary choices, kwim? Anyways, I know from experience one less question makes life a lot easier, lol.

I'm heading off in three days, with tons of help from this thread, I will make an ovo-lacto (& random allergen) report here when I get back!

No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dream that you wish will come true.

It's both a vegetarian and a vegan thread, so I don't see how the title can be misleading. I think vegan food just gets discussed more because it requires more planning, especially since vegetarians, (and omnis too for that matter,) can eat vegan food if they choose to, so vegan food discussion can be helpful to both.

I know, right! The most exciting thing I read in all of that was that Morocco will be getting a veg-friendly tapas bar. Hopefully that's open by my next trip. And I have to readd Kouzzina to my plans, his meal looked wonderful there.
