Flying Fish Guest Post

This week we have a guest post from Tom about his experience at Flying Fish during a trip in September 2016, thanks Tom!

Fondest greetings to you all. My name is Tom, and this will be my first contribution to this site. Before getting to business, I just wanted to take a minute to express my gratitude to everyone that is taking time to read this, and to the individuals who took time out of their day to look at the content I was posting and asked me to write this piece. Thank you so much.

On September 16th my wife and I sat down to an amazing dinner at the Flying Fish restaurant. Flying Fish is a signature restaurant that is located at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort. In the pictures, hopefully you’ll be able to see aesthetics of the room that we were in, because it was beautiful. The restaurant just went through renovations and it looks amazing. With the looks inside, please note that they also have a dress code there, we didn’t realize this a few years back when we dined there for the first time. They won’t turn you away, but there is a backroom that they may sit you in that is still wonderful, but makes one feel slightly alienated when placed there. Although, some people, myself included may enjoy this privacy which is difficult to achieve anywhere on the Disney property. Continue reading

Blaze Pizza at Disney Springs

This review reflects our experience from September 2016.

If you’ve been keeping an eye on the ever changing Disney Springs, you may have noticed that the new Town Center has opened. The Town Center is located in the center of Disney Springs, near where Pleasure Island used to be. The Disney Springs Town Center features tons of shopping and new food options. One of the new options is the quick fire pizza chain Blaze Pizza.

Julie’s Trip – June 2016

This week reader Julie shares about her recent trip to Walt Disney World, thanks Julie!

Before this trip, I had never been to Disney as a vegan, so I did tons of research before I went to make sure I could get the most out of my trip (and this blog was my best source of information!). We arrived on Sunday, June 10. We were staying at Port Orleans French Quarter (which is awesome, by the way!). Our first park was Magic Kingdom, and we got in and immediately went to Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café for lunch. If you tell a cast member you’re vegan, they might not know exactly what that means, so it’s best to tell them exactly what you don’t eat. After I explained it to the cast member, he gave me several options. I ended up with a bowl of rice and black beans with roasted zucchini on top. Of course, I went over to the toppings bar and piled it high with tomato salsa, guacamole, hot peppers, and onions. With the extra toppings, it was plenty of delicious food.

Hollywood Brown Derby

This review reflects our experience from March 2016.

We had not had much luck finding vegan food at Hollywood Studios during our past few visits, and agreed that it was finally time to try something new, so we made a lunch reservation at the Hollywood Brown Derby.

It is also quite expensive compared to other dining options on property, with entrees ranging from $29 to $40+. Hollywood Brown Derby is considered a Signature Dining restaurant, which means it requires two table service credits if you are on the Disney Dining Plan. It is also one of the options for the Fantasmic! dining packages. Continue reading
