As we come to the end of another year we have put together our favorite foods of 2015. This year we decided to include more than just meals. So let’s follow Stacey J and start our journey!
Seared Tofu Ratatouille from Citricos – Citricos is a Signature Restaurant at the the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. This dish features zucchini noodles, lentils, fresh vegetables and seared tofu with a tomato sauce. This is one the freshest meals we’ve had on property.
Fruit Sorbet from L’Artisan des Glaces – L’Artisan des Glaces is nestled into the France pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase. All of the fruit flavors of sorbet are vegan here as well as the waffle cones! This is a great place for a quick snack, especially on a hot day.
Buffet at Tusker House – Tusker House is a character buffet in the Africa section of Animal Kingdom. This lunch and dinner buffet offers a ton of vegetarian options like Samosas, Spiced Vegetable Tofu, Sweet Plantains and much more. Looking to snag a photo with Safari Mickey? This is the place!
Chef TJ creations at Trail’s End Restaurant – Trail’s End is a hidden gem at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campgrounds. On most evenings you will find Chef TJ working and he will create an incredible spread at the same price of the buffet! Some of his specialties include house made vegan cheese nachos, fried tofu and a dessert on a stick! Just make sure you are very hungry before you come. If Chef TJ isn’t there, the other chefs have been known to make a great meal, just not as elaborate as Chef TJ’s.
Marinated Grilled Vegetables with Vegetarian Chick’n Breast at Coral Reef – Coral Reef is found in Future World at Epcot. This restaurant makes you feel as though you are dining under the sea and even shares a wall with The Seas. This dish features a Gardein® Chick’n Breast with grilled vegetables with a tangy tomato vinaigrette. Be sure to ask for the vegan butter with rolls here too!
Chips and Guacamole from La Cava del Tequila – La Cava del Tequila can be found inside the Mexico pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase. This guacamole is actually fresh, unlike many of the bagged/pre-made guac you can find elsewhere. The bar opens at noon and offers plenty of seating inside. This is an excellent location to take a break and enjoy a snack. Bonus tip, try the Jalapeño Margarita!
Literally everything from Erin McKenna’s Bakery – Erin McKenna’s used to be known as Babycakes NYC and is located at The Landing in Disney Springs. This bakery covers most allergies and is completely gluten free and vegan! The donuts are excellent, the cookie sandwiches are to die for and the newest addition is coconut based soft serve! We highly recommend you make at least one stop here. You can also get cakes and other sweets sent to your Disney resort or even to most restaurants for special occasions!
Pineapple Dole Whip® Cup with Coconut Rum at Tamu Tamu Refreshments – Tamu Tamu is in the Africa section of Animal Kingdom. Here you can find Pineapple Dole Whip® with a special twist. If you want just plain pineapple soft serve you can get that, but if you want to add a little something extra we recommend the Coconut Rum over the Dark Rum.
Vegetarian Platter from Tangierine Cafe – Tangierine Cafe can be found in the Morocco pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase. This restaurant is a quick service that offers great vegan food. There is both a falafel wrap and the vegetarian platter here that are super filling delicious meals. The tabbouleh and couscous here are great sides. Just double check that pita bread is vegan when ordering!
Buffet at Biergarten Restaurant – Biergarten Restaurant is located in the Germany pavilion at Epcot’s World Showcase. This meat-heavy buffet wouldn’t be most peoples first pick, but there are a ton of vegan options here! Almost every side on the buffet is vegan including tomato salad, red cabbage, pickles and pretzels! The entertainment is great here and the food is delicious.
We hope you enjoyed, and thank you for spending another year with us!

Do you know if TJ is still at Trails End?? : ) looking at his food makes me happy and hungry!
As far as we know that’s where he still is 🙂
Tangierine Cafe in the Morocco pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase cooks their falafel in the same fryer as the chicken as of November 2015. The manager himself told me so. So, when you ask whether the pita bread is vegan (I was told that it was NOT when I was there), make sure you also ask whether your “vegan” falafel was cooked in the same oil as chicken. Gross.
Definitely agree with Erin McKenna’s Bakery (those donuts!!!!) and any meal prepared by Chef TJ. I also love California Grill, Jiko and Narcoossee’s.
Tusker House and Boma are my two favorite Disney vegan choices.
