Foie Gras

Does anyone know where I can eat Foie Gras while at Disney. I typically eat it 3-4 times a week when at home and I must know where I can get some while on vacation.

No where. Disney doesn't offer true foie gras due to its cruelty to animals. However, pate and terrine and such are served at Les chefs , brown derby lounge, bog, and CG possibly V&A also.

You can't. Disney has banned the use of foie gras by its restaurants. However, you can try the Swan/Dolphin, since they are not Disney-owned they do not have to live by the Disney ban. Bluezoo has had foie gras preparations on its menu at times.

3-4 times a week? whoa

1) As mentioned, WDW does not serve foie gras.
2) Like many things, WDW bowed to Political Correctness (PETA).
3) However, they do serve faux gras.

Just had to chime in. I love me some fois gras (we affectionately call it foe-e grow-e in our house) but I can't fathom eating it 3-4 times a week. Don't think my cholesterol or wallet could take it ; ) mind I I ask where u live that u can find in enough places to eat it 3-4 times a week?

You do not need to be as extreme as PETA to believe the production of foie gras crosses the line. Personally, I commend Disney for taking the position they have on this issue.

Ditto this! I will never understand anyone who justifies cruelty in any way.

I was so happy that they took this off the menus. It's so awful and cruel to the ducks and geese.Also I don't eat any meat. Just can't eat any animals.

How is banning an items where an animal is forcibly fed via a tube in their throat to to make them swell bowing to political correctness? I'd just say it's being aware that there are nicer alternatives.
I wish they'd ban veal too.

Really, isn't killing any animal to eat it cruel? I'm sure most animals that end up food are not treated very nicely.

It is different in my opinion. Although I am vegetarian I think that at least killing an animal it's suffering ends.
I only allow my kids to eat free range meat and uk animal welfare standards are much higher than a lot of other countries.

Industrialized production that allows for mass, cheap grocery store food items is the cruelest thing in the food chain. Take a look at how pigs and chickens are treated before you purchase your eggs, poultry meat, and bacon and then come back here and tell me again how horrible producers of foie gras are.

Yup! No way the OP eats foie gras 3-4x a week either, call me a skeptic of some of the posts on here
