    We love authentic Mexican often. While we found La Hacienda delicious, we didn't find it to be authentic food. I think WDW probably stays away from true Mexican cuisine because people expect more of a Tex-Mex thing and then are surprised when they get authentic Mexican. I thought the menu was creative and not at all what I expected. Maybe it would suit his tastes more.

    Has anyone been on a Disney Cruise as a vegan? I recently booked our first Disney Cruise and I'm worried that they won't be as accomodating as the restuarants at WDW. Also I'm wondering if it would be worth it to try Palo or Remy? Has anyone had experience with either of these on the new ship? Any info would be greatly appreciated! I'm having nightmares of eating every meal at the buffet salad bar.... not that there's anything wrong with salad! =)

    Thanks for the tip! Normally, the only time I can get my husband to eat anything Mexican is if my aunt is making tamales. :)

    Help!!!!!! :rotfl:



    What TS restaurants do you think would be the most accomodating to my daughter's vegetarian diet? :thumbsup2 ;)

    Was hoping for non-buffet and 1 TS credit restaurants since we are doing the dining plan. My husband and son are carnivores and dislike restaurants where you serve yourself. They think it cheapen's the experience. :rotfl:

    Where do you want to eat - and what kind of food? If you are going to the Magic Kingdom - the Liberty Tree is a good choice.

    1 TS and non buffet - I think your best choice is Tony's for actually in MK.

    We had amazing experiences at Mama Melrose, Kouzzina, and Ohana, as well!

    Les Chefs definitely has things for a vegetarian...the Mac and Cheese is one of their top sellers. We're trying the Wave for the first time next month, but I've heard great things about all the fresh veggies they offer. Sorry I can't help you with the others, since I've never been, but I would think Tutto's, as an Italian restaurant, would definitely have meatless pastas!

    The vegetable lasagna (Lasagnes de legumes du soleil a l'huile d'olive au thym) at Chefs de France is very tasty. At the Wave we had the Seasonal Vegetable Stew and enjoyed it very much. I haven't been to the other two places on your list.

    I always check the latest menus on allears before booking our ADRs each trip. Many restaurants have a vegetarian entree on the menu. Some restaurants have a separate vegetarian menu and allears does not always have those on their website. I see they have the one for San Angel Inn but not the one for Jiko for example.

    It's too bad your DH and DS won't do buffets because Boma and Tusker House are great options for vegetarians.

    I was on the disney dream in Feb. as a vegan, Remy was the best. Had quite a few hiccups but overall good.

    the wave is excellent for vegans /vegetarians. Also recommend Grand Floridian Cafe.
    Never been to Portobello.

    thanks everyone!

    It's funny, we used to have a problem finding stuff she'd eat because she didn't like anything. Now I have a problem finding meals without any meat, which is the only thing she used to eat before. :rotfl2: I'm so glad that she eats veggies now. :thumbsup2

    Does anyone know if the veggie wrap at Cosmic Rays is vegan?

    No, I don't believe it is. Maybe it can be made that way. I seem to remember it having something like a ranch type dressing on it. I really should have written down what was in it, I guess hindsight is 20/20.

    This is the info I have written in my trip notes for Cosmic Rays (I don't know where I got the info but I assume it was somewhere on these boards!!):

    Thank you both! I thought I had read it was a hummus-type wrap, but I guess I'll just have to check to see what's going on with it once we get there!

    Also: What's a vegan to do on the QSDP, as far as desserts go? TS places usually have sorbet or non-dairy ice cream. But CS mostly only has ice cream, brownies, non-vegan cookies, etc. I normally don't get dessert, but since it's included I want to get something. Is it possible to sub a side of fries or something if nothing is available for dessert?

    I definitely remember some hummus, I should have mentioned it before. I also remember some corn, beans, lettuce and tomatoes.. I want to say there was olives as well. And it was a wheat wrap. But I also seem to remember some sort of ranch-y type dressing. Maybe I'm just crazy, but I thought there was some sort of dressing in it. :confused3

    Now I'm totally curious about the wraps! Here is some info I found out on the interwebs:

    from an e-pinions review (I'm assuming the reviewer is vegan because they opted for the gluten-free bun to make their veggie burgers vegan):

    "The food is good. We all enjoyed the veggie burgers, especially being able to pile on lots of toppings. The gluten-free buns are a little dry, but basically good. I was partial to the veggie wrap, with its hummus spread, beans and shredded vegetables on a whole wheat tortilla. It was definitely a bit messy to eat and the tortilla was a bit dry, but overall it was a tasty lunch with apple slices."

    Now, maybe she asked for no sauce and just didn't say so in the review.

    Okay, so this person blogged about their vegan dining experience at WDW, and says: "Hummus wrap with black beans, corn, and salsa from Cosmo&#8217;s Ray located in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom. This was a pretty tasty wrap considering that Cosmo&#8217;s Ray is a greasy burger type place. I double checked with the cashier via the ingredients book that this wrap was vegan (I would suggest checking again though if you go here just in case they changed this item). "

    That review was from 2009...
