Lucky you...I'm a Disney World fanatic! This is the best site for all things Disney -- it has the menus of every single restaurant on the property (including all the hotels), so it's the place to go for info on what food is available. DW is actually quite veg-friendly -- most places have some kind of veg meal, and if it's not vegan, they'll accommodate you and make it vegan. Just ask them. Have a great time!!

i saw that site and they said my hotel for breakfast had oatmeal! i was happy about that...but they have bagels and stuff but idk if they contain eggs. Right now since im a new vegan i'm just eliminating eggs and dairy from my diet then eliminate others later on once i get used to removing eggs and dairy lol.

Isn't it odd that Animal Kingdom has restaurants that serve lots of meat?

Its up to you but commercially prepared bagel's rarely contain eggs (except of course, egg bagels, which are described specifically as such). Muffins normally have eggs and/or dairy though.

That irony is lost on most people unfortunately. Just like have a fundraiser for a animal rescue and serving meat.

wow, a true example of irony. That rarely happens!





spiral_ai, email Disney World, or go to their website and start chatting with one of their travel agents. They are very accommodating. I was thinking of going, but alas, finances didn't allow it...and I talked extensively with one of their travel agents through chat about having vegan food. S/he mentioned that it can be pre-arranged. They do it often for people with dietary needs. I guess us vegans are now in 'dietary needs' category. And you can select which restaurants you want to dine at ahead of time....make reservations at them...and they will have vegan food prepared for you. You can obviously pack some snacks, so you aren't stranded somewhere hungry and can't find anything vegan to eat.

Actually, the best veg restaurant in Disney is there. They've got lots of meat, too, but the buffet place whose name I can't remember has a TON of veg*n options. I think it's the only place I saw tofu during the week I was at Disney last March.

I am not much help as I have only been to Disney as a vegetarian but I ADORE Disney so I wanetd to say have a great time! Also, it is such an accomodating place in general, I am sure everyone would be happy to help you! The meal plan is absolutely the way to go- you get more food than you can imagine eating and you save money.

Tusker House. That's the place in Animal Kingdom that I couldn't remember. All you can eat buffet with tons of veg options. It's a little more expensive than most places at Disney, but worth it.



Here is the menu. Note the "vegetarian table" in the buffet item list, as well as all the veg items in the appetizer list.

Every time you go into a restaurant, just ask for the chef. Tell them your dietary needs, and they will take care of you. They will always go above and beyond; even if you don't ask for the chef, they will bring him/her out! My favorite is EPCOT. The restaurant on the main floor of the Land is the best! Buffet with everything and the ingredients are listed on everything in the cases. The restaurant in Morocco is great, too. Some restaurants are better than others, but I have never gone hungry there (and I go every two months).



Also, at each counter service restaurant they have a binder with all of the ingredients of everything. Just ask to see it so you can judge for yourself.



There is a vegetarian/vegan Walt Disney World guide available from Amazon (get the newest edition).



FYI - All the fries (except the McDonald's ones) are vegan.



Other favorites:

Cosmic Ray's in Magic Kingdom

Prime Time Cafe in Disney Studios

Backlot Cafe in Disney Studios

Anywhere in Downtown Disney will make special requests



Hope that helps!

You will not have a problem with being hungry at Disney, that' s for sure. As the others have said, they are very accommodating. We stay at one of the All Star Resorts when we visit. The food court always has lots of fresh fruit, hot cereal, pasta, and so forth. For a splurge meal, you can book ahead at the O'hana and tell them your dietary preference. They have a fantastic stir fry and a grilled pineapple dessert that is to die for!
