    I ended up with the following ADR's for my family of 5 (all vegetarian except for dh): Via Napoli lunch with Biergarten and Akershus dinners for our 2 Epcot days, Tusker House lunch for our AK day, Chef Mickey's, 1900 Park Fare and Tony's Town Square dinners for our 3 MK days. I would like to eat at Boma, but there's no good time to schedule it.

    What do you think?

    I'm a vegetarian and have has good experiences at Les Chefs in Epcot. There are two options: veggie pasta dish or baked Mac and cheese. The salad appetizer was good also.

    I personally do not care for Biergarten and found the options slim. The buffet is very heavy on meat, especially sausages.

    What about for kids at Les Chefs? I actually looked at that but all of the kid's options were meat.

    My dd does not eat meat and she chose the baked macaroni. She loved it.

    In my experience restaurants accommodate kids too.

    We will be on the dining plan. Do you know if they will substitute on that? I would much prefer to eat there! Thanks.

    Yes- you can definitely get veg substitutions with the dining plan!

    Yes dining plan substitutes are no problem.


    Also if you need quick service, Toruga has a good veggie burrito in MK. Although it is open only occasionally. I eat there when possible to have something besides a quick service veggie burger!

    Have a great trip

    Great, thanks! I wasn't sure if they would substitute on dining plan. Several of the sit down places have kid's menus with nothing vegetarian listed and all three of my kids are veg.

    I think the dining plan can be rough if your kids are vegetarians and like to eat more than pizza or mac&cheese. :confused3 You seem to have a number of buffets, which is what we plan while on the DDP so that our youngest has a bit of variety each day. Crystal Palace had a good variety too. Have a wonderful vacation!

    Thanks! My younger two would be fine with pizza and mac and cheese every day but my 7 year old won't eat mac and cheese at all and pizza ony occasionally. He's not big on cheese. His favorite thing to eat is soup! We should be ok with all of these buffets though. I think Tusker House will be his favorite.

    My favourites are:

    Sanaa

    Tusker House

    Jiko

    I have also had some excellent vegan meals at The Rose and Crown, Kouzzina, Narcoosee's, Boma, Kona Cafe, and California Grill.

    Kouzzina for dinner, definitely!!! They came out and went over the menu with me, and put together a FANTASTIC meal of appetizers and side dishes. Teppan Edo was fantastic too. Let them know before you are seated, and they will make your food first. I was told the noodles contain egg, but you can substitute rice.

    I'm trying 'Ohana on our trip in January, and hoping against hope to get in to Be Our Guest. I'll update when we return.

    My favorite hands down is Sanaa (I haven’t eaten at jiko yet). I had such amazing food there and it was so nice to be give a vegan menu (with more than one item on it;)) and order anything I wanted.

    Where should a gluten-free vegan eat at Hollywood Studios? I'm looking for counter service lunch, not table service. We have dinner plans at 'Ohana, but I'll need something midday too. I can bring in my own food, but if there is something good I'd rather buy food there. Thanks!

    While I'm at it, what are some good counter service places for gluten-free vegan dining at MK and Epcot? It is always good to have a list going in, so I'm not scrambling to find something! Thanks!

    I find HS the hardest park to eat in, and I am just vegan, not gluten-free. I usually end up with a veggie sandwich or a salad.

    At Epcot, I'd suggest the Tangierine (not sure of the spelling) Cafe in Morocco. They have several dishes that are vegan (or can be made vegan) and I think some of them should be gluten-free - lentils, hummus, etc.

    I haven't tried the new Mexico counter service, but at the old one I used to be able to get black beans on rice with salsa and it was quite tasty.

    In MK, the chili at Columbia Harbor House is good and should be gluten-free.

    Hey nancy drew, I hear you! I carry a notebook with me everywhere in Disney. (I have celiac and I'm a vegan). Check out my blog - I go for a couple weeks at a time and outline in detail where I eat safely and deliciously. I've also already planned my February trip and can tell you my plans if you are interested! When are you going? I'd love to hear about your trip and how it worked out when you get back!

    Lisa, I love your blog! Great information there!! I am from Guelph, Ontario so not too far away - also vegan (although not gluten-free), and also a lover of Disney!

    I just wanted to share this picture! The stone pie at the Rose and Crown in EPCOT's UK pavilion didn't sound tempting to me, so I asked if they'd make me egg and chips. They said yes, and the plate came out adorable.
