    we had dinner there 5 years ago, so it's been a while, but it was very good..
    we told the waitress that DD's a vegetarian and the chef came out to speak with her to find out what she eats...
    he prepared her a vegan feast the likes of which i've never seen at a restaurant at WDW...
    but that was the famous chef TJ....i don't think he's at 1900 park fare anymore, but i would think it still shouldn't be a problem...
    tell the waitress you need to know what's vegetarian, especially for the kids......

    we're going back there for dinner again this summer....
    i'll try to come back in to here to write about how it works out...(also at the other places we'll be at)

    in my experience, teppan edo is not a good choice for vegetarians, especially if they're particularly sensitive...
    i'd pick a different restaurant if i were you..

    Teppan Edo wasn't a good choice for us as vegetarians. It was a wonderful experience, we had a great time, the chef made vegetables specially for us in a really entertaining way, however we left the restaurant hungry...we didn't get much food compared to the other guests and haven't returned since. This is not a restaurant I'd recommend to a vegetarian, especially someone who doesn't like seeing meat being prepared and with so many great options in WDW.

    We have never tried the buffet at PF, I know people rave about the strawberry soup which I'm guessing would be vegetarian. My teen is a vegan now and Tusker House was a great buffet for her last year. We're heading back in August this year and I'm wondering if anyone has any recent vegan dining experiences to share. Last year she loved Coral Reefs Gardein Chicken entree but they switched it to the fake crab cakes now which doesn't thrill her. I'm also wondering about the upscale dining, last year we did California Grill and they gave her a vegan sampler. However this year she is wondering about other places and not many of them have anything that looks vegan listed on their menus.

    We liked the Wave (not signature but still good) and Jiko as far as upscale dining. My mom is vegan and they had a separate vegan menu at both.

    I just changed our August trip to CR so maybe we'll give the Wave another try. The last time we went there we weren't thrilled but my daughter wasn't a vegan yet. I love Jiko we ate there when we stayed at AKL, I hate using disney transportation to get there though so maybe we'll break down and use the car to go. We're weird, we drive down but we hate driving while at WDW. I also saw on the vegan at WDW website that they loved the vegan pho with srping rolls option at HBD which is a restaurant that we have never tried.

    Interesting, this is the first I've seen that they changed this up. I like fake crab cakes, but I wonder if the aioli is vegan?

    They had a different vegan dish the last time I was at HBD but it was really good! I would think they probably do vegan well. And that Vegan at WDW site has a good write up on Disney Springs with lots of suggestions in the comments too. Morimoto's or Frontera Cocina may be good options for signature type restaurants with vegan options.

    I was wondering about that aioli too but my DD just told me that she won't eat fake crab cakes so we won't be going to CR this year unless the menu changes again. I wish another restaurant would add a gardein chicken entree, my vegan isn't a huge veggie lover she is more in to tofu or fake meat. She also just vetoed lunch at Belle's castle because she didn't like the vegan entree or the french onion soup. Maybe I will book a lunch for just myself there, I love the salad nicoise and the dessert.

    Has anyone had root vegetable gnocchi at le cellier?
    It reads like I should be ok with it.. But that doesn't always work out


    I'm a most selective eater & i can't tolerate really rich/creamy foods-I like pasta with no sauce:rolleyes1
