Guest Post: The Wave…of American Flavors

Disney World has so many restaurants that we have yet to try them all. Since we can’t stay in Disney long enough to eat everywhere we thought we’d reach out to our readers to hear about some of the places we haven’t been. Our friend Rachel gave us a review of her experience at The Wave… of American Flavors at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

I visited The Wave during my trip in March 2014. It is located on one of the lower levels of The Contemporary Resort. I was eating at a later hour and the restaurant was busy, but not crowded at all. As soon as the waiter came over, I informed him that I was vegan and he immediately said he would have the chef come out and speak to me. The chef, who was very friendly, went through the items on the menu and recommended the Curry Vegetarian Stew. It was already completely vegan with butternut squash, asparagus, heirloom apples and other veggies. The chef told me he would add some tofu for me and I happily accepted!

When it came it was a lovely blend of spice and fruit with some crunch from the asparagus and apples. I ended up craving this meal after my trip was over, so I may be back for it next time I’m in Disney World!

Thanks for the review Rachel! It’s great seeing vegan items on Disney menus without modification.

Back in 2014 I created Vegan Disney World after going to Walt Disney World several times and finding no resource for vegan options. Corey and I began this blog from our trips and have now moved closer to the mouse to eat around the parks on a weekly basis. Since the blog started we have cruised on Disney Cruise Line, gone to Tokyo Disneyland and to Disneyland in California!
