I went to Disney World with my mom on vacation at the end of September. It is fun for all ages, both young and old! We had a blast exploring the parks, riding the rides and seeing the attractions. We first visited the Magic Kingdom, then Animal Kingdom, then Epcot, then Hollywood Studios. My favorite, of course, was Animal Kingdom. We were on a “quick meal plan”, which meant we could get quick service for any meal of the day at only quick service restaurants. We only had a certain amount of these on our plan. We decided to use the quick service for breakfast at our resort at Coronado Springs, and also for lunch inside the parks. We paid separate for dinner for the first 3 nights, then used the quick service meals for the remaining days we were there. We stayed for 6 days and 7 nights. I was not too worried that I would not be able to find any vegan options. For the most part it easy. However, I did have to adjust some of the menu items at times. Enjoy the pictures of the food and fun we experienced! Oh and Happy World Vegetarian Day…… today!

Enjoying a nice Babycakes donut
Bongos Cuban Cafe in Downtown Disney. They had only ONE vegetarian option. I had to specify NO BUTTER, which is an animal product! I got steamed veggies, white rice and sweetened plantains. Wasn’t too bad.
Wolfgang Puck Cafe in Downtown Disney. Plenty of vegetarian options, but no vegan. I got a veggie pizza with no cheese.
I got this at Studio Catering Co. in Hollywood Studios. They offered one vegetarian option, a veg sandwich with cheese, pesto and a asiago cheese bread. I swapped the bread for multigrain and asked for no cheese or pesto. And of course choose carrots as a side instead of fries, and apples for dessert. I think I was the only person in the whole park who ordered carrots instead of fries.
This lunch was at Epcot at the Seasons cafe at The Land indoor attraction. They had a nice veg alternative cooler section with salads and wraps. Here I got some couscous, hummus, pita and some potato salad made with vinegar as a side.
This was at the Tangierine Cafe in Epcot, country-Morocco! I got the vegetable platter. Falafel, couscous, hummus, tabouleh, lentils and olives. And of course, hot sauce!
For breakfast most days I had oatmeal with raisins and fruit on the side. Breakfast was at our hotel, Coronado Springs Resort Hotel
My fav sit down restaurant was in the Animal Kingdom lodge at a restaurant called Jiko. They had a separate vegetarian AND vegan menu! It is an African themed restaurant. Check this out!
Egyptian Kushari-Lentils, Couscous, chickpeas, golden raisins, roasted veggies, romesco sauce with toasted pine nuts. Amazing! At Jiko.
Animal Kingdom’s Tree of Life!
Breakfast one morning at our hotel, Coronado Springs Resort Hotel Dinner with my mom at Disney’s Boardwalk. The restaurant was created by Iron Chef Cat Cora called Kouzzina
Grape leaves at Kouzzina. Had some work to do to get off all that oil.
This was at a restaurant called Columbia Habour House In Magic Kingdom. I got the Lighthouse Sandwich without the coleslaw, which was suppose to be part of the sandwich. It has hummus and tomatoes. I chose a side of steamed broccoli.
Dinner at Epcot in France! The restaurant was called Les Chefs France. I got the veggie lasagna with no cheese! Very good! This lasagna is a common dish in the south of France.
