Hey Guys,

As a vegan who is currently working at WDW, I just wanted to point out a few things.
Sanaa at Kidani Village has an entirely Vegan menu (just ask at the podium when you make your reservation).

Another tip, if you specify you're vegan at any restaurant in WDW when you check in (not the quick service, but the sit down restaurants), they should bring the Chef out to talk to you about your options. Many times the chef will also offer to make you something off the menu. Recently I've had a fantastic 5 course vegan meal at Ohana', Another off the menu meal at Kouzzina's by Cat Cora and The California Grill, even places like Boma will create a meal for you if you find the buffet options limited.

The great thing is that any sit down restaurant on property has a chef on duty, they understand vegetarian/vegan, and are very helpful.

restaurants I recommend

(Note I do not eat meat out and I can not have dairy and gluten)
First tip: You can also email special diets ahead of time and ask them.

Ohana - note the veggie dish has egg. Also Chef TJ is at the Poly now.

Whispering Canyon - Yes they have veggie dishes

Turf club - another contact ahead of time. I did luck out and get tofu there.

Citricos - excellent!!! I cant say enough about the tofu

Kouzzina - another great veggie dish. the cook the gluten free rolls very well

Counter service:
Contempo cafe has a veggie bake that you can order without cheese. It is really good.

AAAAAAAActually, Sanaa's vegan menu only consists of sides, soups, and appetizers; there is not one entree on there. I guess that's something though...

Thank you so much for this!

I am not a veggie or a vegan, but I am lactose intolerant. I didn't realise that they did rice dream in MK (and big potions too!!)

A must try for my next trip, whilst my boyfriend eats the real stuff next to me!

Thanks for Veggie Fruit Fruit, guys! I'm not vegetarian or vegan, but my husband and I do prefer to eat vegetarian for a majority of meals, so it's great to learn about more veggie-friendly options at WDW.

Thanks for posting the tip on Saana, Pitty - I was wondering why Michelle and Emily didn't mention it, but maybe they haven't eaten there yet, since it is new.

Also, I just made an ADR at Citricos for April, will definitely check out the tofu, which does look delicious as described on the menu at allears.net!
Tusker House is also a good choice

At Tusker House (or at least the last time we went there, in October 2008), the entire buffet layout is divided between a vegetarian side and an omni side, and our server pointed this out to us. Standing in the dining room and facing the buffet area, everything to the left of center is vegetarian, and everything to the right is omni. (With the very obvious exception of the deli tray somewhere on the left, but putting it among the prepared salads was the best place for it.) This visually took care of some hidden gotchas, like a side dish of Israeli couscous that was probably prepared with chicken broth and was therefore on the omni side. The vegetarian dishes may not all have been vegan-friendly, but like at Boma, there's always a chef on hand who can help you out.

Jul and I aren't vegetarian, but we know enough people who are that we try to note stuff like this.

I am not a vegan or a vegetarian but I do have a dietary restriction in which I can not eat gluten. I have found WDW one of the most accommodating places for vacationing. Especially at the sit down restaurants. When you show up just tell them your restriction and a chef comes out and they will work with you to come up with something you can eat. The most of them are trained in these many allergies and restrictions. I never get this treatment anywhere else especially while on vacation. It says something when you can go on vacation and not have to fear getting sick due to contaminated food.
