A Lunch at Tangierine Cafe

This review reflects our experience from September of 2016.

Finding a quick meal in Disney World is pretty easy, but it’s finding a fresh tasting and filling quick meal that can be a little harder. All throughout Walt Disney World there are tons of vegan quick service options, many contain french fries and some sort of vegetable patty. That’s not the case when you’re searching for a quick option in Epcot’s World Showcase. One of our absolute favorite quick service options is at Tangierine Cafe in the Morocco pavilion.

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.

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.

Falafel Wraps at Tangierine Cafe

This review reflects our experience from October 2015.

Sometimes when you’re in Disney World you just want a decent quick service option to keep you going. One of our absolute favorite quick service options has always been Tangierine Cafe in the Morocco Pavilion in Epcot. The theming here is absolutely beautiful and the food tastes very fresh. This is a great option to keep you full and give you a real immersive feeling in World Showcase.

Tangierine Cafe offers Moroccan cuisine which includes falafel, tabbouleh, hummus and much more. On the menu there are a few options that can be made vegan. On our last trip we decided to go with the Vegetable Platter and a Falafel Wrap. You can also get the Mediterranean Sliders Combo here with falafel. Previously the lentil salad contained mayo but is now completely vegan! Just a heads up, the falafel and french fries are cooked in a shared fryer.  Continue reading

Falafel and Lentils from Tangierine Cafe

This review reflects our experience in May of 2015.

One of the most beautiful and unique pavilions in Epcot’s World Showcase is Morocco. Once you walk back into this pavilion you will truly feel as though you have been transported to Africa. This pavilion features a shopping bazaar and three different dining locations, two table services and one quick service. Tangierine Cafe is the quick service option in Morocco and features both indoor and outdoor seating. This is a great place to enjoy some veggie heavy meals with a beautiful atmosphere.
