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.

The Hollywood Brown Derby is one of the more sophisticated dining options at Hollywood Studios, and is an authentic replica of the famous Brown Derby restaurant in Hollywood. 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

People often ask about the various buffets in Walt Disney World. There are a ton of different styles of buffets on property from character meals, different food offerings and different meal times. One of our absolute favorite buffets in Disney World is Tusker House in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

‘Ohana Dinner Guest Post

This review reflects an experience from April 2016.

This week we have a guest post from Erin about her dinner experience at ‘Ohana. ‘Ohana is located at Disney’s Polynesian Resort and features a family style meal. Here’s Erin’s review:

Back in April of this year I enjoyed a fully vegan dinner at the ‘Ohana family style dinner. I understand that a lot of vegans tend to avoid this because of the huge meat focused menu but, I have to say this is a must hit for vegans visiting the parks . The chef was very helpful in explaining what on the menu was vegan and could be modified for me.
