    Hello! My husband and children will be at WDW for a week in May. We're all vegan and have been looking into our options, which appear AMAZING! Is there any one restaurant we shouldn't miss as vegans? Thanks so much!!

    Aly:

    Although I'm not a vegan, I often opt for lighter fare at the parks (all that walking must make me think if I also eat lighter I'll actually come home from vacation having dropped a few pounds!)

    If I had to recommend a few "don't miss" restaurants for you:
    • Crystal Palace, Magic Kingdom: Their "salad" bar is not your usual lettuce and topping fare: Couscous, Tabbouleh, and edamame salads were so tasty and that's just the top of the iceberg (lettuce)!  If there was a "not-to-be-missed" restaurant in the parks for vegans, it would be this one.  
    • Boma, Animal Kingdom Lodge: Outstanding salads and sides. Your "must-eat" restaurant at the resorts.  FYI: Food is served in a buffet/station fashion that can confuse some diners.   Their vegetable soups are so filling, but make sure and ask if they include chicken stock.
    • Sunshine Seasons, Epcot: They toss your salads and noodle bowls in front of you, so you can tell them if you want to omit any ingredients. Probably one of the freshest counter service restaurants and a wonderful value.
    A couple of tasty choices I've enjoyed recently, (granted most are for lacto-ovo vegetarians):
    • Vegetarian Sandwich, The Plaza/Magic Kingdom: The fresh mozzarella and pesto made it a stand out.
    • Greek Salad, Studio Catering/Disney Studios:  Sometimes salads can be hit or miss at the  counter service restaurants, but this one never disappoints.  Even if you have to decline the feta, the lettuce and veggies are always crisp and fresh.
    • Tabbouleh and Hummus, Tangerine Cafe/Epcot:  Decline the yogurt topping and you can make your own vegan wrap with their pita bread on the side.
    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
