    My daughter is a vegetarian. Finding restaurants with food for her is hard. She doesn't want to eat a salad every meal. Looking at the menus for Epcot, I am getting discouraged. Any ideas?

    It can be hard for vegetarians to enjoy a lot of variety in dining, Sharon.  But Disney certainly offers choices.  Most (if not all) restaurants have at least one menu item that vegetarians can enjoy; even their finest steakhouses offer meatless meals beyond salad.  In my experience, I've seen choices that range from gnocchi to quiche to soups to pastas.  You mentioned Epcot, so let's explore those menus a bit.  Restaurant Marrakesh serves a vegetable couscous dish chock-full of flavor, and there is a vegetable lasagna at Les Chefs de France that sounds divine.  Teppan Edo offers fresh grilled vegetables with rice.  There's even a vegetarian version of a comfort food favorite--Shepherd's Pie--at Rose and Crown.  I also have to mention that  California Grill features a fabulous goat cheese ravioli (not suitable for vegans, obviously). 

    If your daughter doesn't see something on the menu that she can enjoy, do check with your server if accommodations can be made to modify a dish.  As long as she is open to trying new flavor combinations, she should be able to enjoy meals at Walt Disney World every bit as much as her meat-eating companions.  Enjoy!
