This week we have a guest post from Julie. She tells us about her recent trip, October 2016, to Disney World full of new foods for her!
A little while ago, I had the privilege of writing a guest post about my trip to Walt Disney World in July that was sadly cut quite short due to a family emergency. Before we even left the resort, however, my mom and I were already talking about reprising our trip as soon as we possibly could. We’d always wanted to go during October for the Food & Wine Festival and Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, and so we made the reservations immediately. This was, by far, one of my most wonderful trips to the magical place on earth!
The first thing we did upon arriving on day 1 was get some lunch at Columbia Harbour House in Magic Kingdom. I ordered the chili with the oyster crackers on the side for my non-vegan mom as the crackers are not vegan. The chili is good (and oddly enough has olives in it), but if you’re not much of a snacker and wish to stay full, I would get two. They’re a little small for someone like me with a high metabolism who doesn’t snack much.
2016 has come to an end, we want to thank you all for following along with us for another year! As this year comes to an end, it means it’s time for Vegan Disney World’s favorite dishes of 2016. So let’s take a quick trip into our favorite things we ate this year.
This review reflects our experience from August 2016.
Dining in Walt Disney World can be an experience in its own. When you’re looking for fine dining there are several options throughout the World, but nothing quite compares to the dining experience you will find at Victoria and Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian. Victoria and Albert’s was named number 2 in Best Fine Dining Restaurants by Trip Advisor in 2016. This restaurant features three dining options, the Dining Room, Queen Victoria’s Room, and the Chef’s Table. The Dining room allows you to choose between a 7 or 10 course meal, the Queen and Chef’s Table are both the 10 course meal.
If you choose to dine at Victoria and Albert’s you must adhere by their strict dress code. Men must wear jackets, no exceptions, and women must wear a nice cocktail dress or dressy pant suit or skirt. Continue reading →
This review reflects our experience from September 2016.
Breakfast can be really hit or miss for vegans in Disney World. We all pretty much have a set meal we eat at home, so when we’re traveling it may be a bit more difficult to satisfy our morning meal. On our recent trip I was 6 months pregnant, which meant I was hungry all the time. Because of this, we opted to do a few more breakfasts than usual. One I hadn’t been to in several years was at Disney’s Beach Club. Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast is held daily at Cape May Cafe and includes Minnie, Goofy and Donald.
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 →
