Vegetable Bowls at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe

This review reflects our experience from September 2016.

Have you ever found yourself spending the day at Magic Kingdom and trying to figure out a filling and cheap meal? When we first went vegan the only options we could find anywhere were veggie burgers. Soon everywhere in Magic Kingdom carried a veggie burger and we quickly grew tired of these meals on our trips. Suddenly, Disney changed their mind about veggie burgers and they started to replace these meals with other options. One of the first to change drastically was Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe who was a burger quick service. Pecos Bill’s completely changed their menu to be Mexican food, which meant no more burgers!

Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe

This review reflects our experience from September 2016.

A few years ago we would joke about how Magic Kingdom was full of veggie burgers for both vegetarians and vegans. Over the years some of the quick service options have changed which have made it so that our options have expanded beyond the world of the Malibu Gardenburger while in Magic Kingdom. One of those more recent changes was over in Tomorrowland at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe.

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.

Flying Fish Guest Post

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

Hollywood Brown Derby

This review reflects our experience from March 2016.

We had not had much luck finding vegan food at Hollywood Studios during our past few visits, and agreed that it was finally time to try something new, so we made a lunch reservation at the Hollywood Brown Derby.

The Hollywood Brown Derby is one of the more sophisticated dining options at Hollywood Studios, and is an authentic replica of the famous Brown Derby restaurant in Hollywood. It is also quite expensive compared to other dining options on property, with entrees ranging from $29 to $40+. Hollywood Brown Derby is considered a Signature Dining restaurant, which means it requires two table service credits if you are on the Disney Dining Plan. It is also one of the options for the Fantasmic! dining packages. Continue reading
