Julie’s Trip Report From October 2016

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.

Dining with Belle and The Beast – Lunch at Be Our Guest

This review reflects our experience in October 2015.

Be Our Guest restaurant is part of the Fantasyland expansion in Magic Kingdom. It is modeled to resemble the Beast’s castle as seen in the film Beauty and The Beast. Be Our Guest serves a quick service breakfast and lunch, and then coverts to a table service location for dinner. During dinner, wine and beer are offered. It is the first and only dining location to serve adult beverages in the Magic Kingdom!

Be Our Guest, for breakfast!

This review reflects our experience in April of 2015.

Have you watched Beauty and the Beast and been jealous of Beast’s Castle? Well now you can experience it at Be Our Guest restaurant in Disney’s Magic Kingdom. It is quite large, with three uniquely themed rooms featuring an elegant ballroom and the west wing of the castle. During breakfast and lunch hours, Be Our Guest is quick-service, but functions as a table-service restaurant for dinner. The cuisine is French themed and French wine and beer are available at dinner. This is the only restaurant where you can find alcohol inside the Magic Kingdom.

Be Our Guest recently started serving a quick service breakfast, and we were lucky enough to get an early morning reservation. The regular adult menu did not have any vegan offerings, however, on the children’s menu, there is oatmeal offered with soymilk, which may be vegan. We had planned to speak to a chef upon arrival, but noticed a pre-order option when logged into My Disney Experience. This offered an “allergy-friendly” menu. When checking off allergies for milk and eggs, an option for waffles and fruit appeared. We pre-ordered waffles and fruit and hoped for the best! Continue reading
