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.

Tokyo Dining for a Birthday Lunch

This review reflects our experience from January 2016.

If you’ve been keeping up with our blog over the years then you probably know one of our favorite restaurants is Tokyo Dining. There are several reasons for our love of this restaurant, it’s in World Showcase, it’s a quick table service, we can usually book it same day (we go during off season), it’s cheap and it’s delicious! Tokyo Dining shares a building with Teppan Edo in the Japan pavilion in Epcot. It offers a great view of World Showcase Lagoon and even has a great view for IllumiNations.

Biergarten for Lunch

This review reflects our experience from September 2015.

When traveling through World Showcase in Epcot you may be checking out the many restaurants. One of the most unsuspecting vegan friendly restaurants happens to be Biergarten in the Germany Pavilion. Biergarten Restaurant features an incredible theme that makes you feel like you’re sitting in a biergarten under the German night sky. We recently went for lunch and were told a few updates about the buffet from our previous visit.

When we were seated we told our waiter we’d need to speak with a chef. After a few minutes a chef came out and spoke with us about what our vegan options were. The chef informed us that the rice contains chicken broth, but everything else we had eaten previously was still vegan. He offered to make us vegan rice but we declined.  Continue reading

Guest Post: Akershus Princess Buffet

We often see people asking about Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot. Akershus is a buffet restaurant in the Norway Pavilion that features a character meal full of princesses. Akershus is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All three meals offer character dining. One of our readers recently went and shared her experience with us, thanks Saira!

We traveled to Walt Disney World in November 2015. Myself and my almost 4 year old daughter are vegan, and my husband is an omnivore. We were on the dining plan so we only ate at restaurants that accepted it. We went to Akershus, in the Norway Pavilion in World Showcase for dinner.  Continue reading

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
