We had a lot of trouble at fresh apeel with ingredients. No list and the "chefs" are not knowledgable at all. I'm allergic to soy and he told me the Caesar salad would be safe for me and after I begged him for ingredients he listed off what he could remember and silk tofu was a main ingredient . Not knowing tofu is soy is crazy for anyone called a chef! Things that are labeled vegan seem to be though. The guys putting together the salads and wraps knew for example the buttered croutons shouldn't be added to the chopped veggie salad even if they didn't know why. Our vegan friends ate there very happily a few times but after that goof I just picked up food elsewhere

Anyone ever had dinner at Grand Floridian Cafe? Menu on allears doesn't really show anything vegetarian. Wondering about anyone's experience.

TIA!

If you look back several pages I did a review on it and I posted a picture. Wish I knew exactly what page it was on. I was given the option of a vegetarian pasta dish and a tofu vegan dish. The entree was quite tasty!

In this post HunnyJar describes the meal and two posts later she posted the photo.

Both the tofu dish from the Grand Floridian Cafe and the quinoa cakes from Whispering Canyon look very tasty!

I ended up finding it by generating a list of HunnyJar's past posts. I clicked on HunnyJar's username over to the left of one of her posts and in the menu that pops up clicked on "Find more posts by HunnyJar". That brings up a list of other posts by that user. But even then, I had to page back through 6 pages of posts to find it! It was worth it though to find those photos.

Thank you so much for finding the post!

Both meals were quite good and I'd be more than happy to go back to either (or both!) restaurants.

Does Chef TJ still work with Disney? I know he was at Ohanas awhile back but thought he left there. Were taking our vegan/vegetarian friends to WDW in the fall and would love to set up some nice meals for them!

Apparently, he is now working at 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian.. Here's a link to someone's blog - they did a great review on 1900 Park Fare and Chef TJ.

He is still at Park Fare. I was in contact with him recently (I have food allergies and the chefs contact you directly if you request it). I eat with him next week.

Does anyone happen to know if the potato casserole served at Akershus' breakfast is vegetarian or not? I can't seem to find any information on it.
