I recently got a response from emailing Disney about eating Vegan at Disney World. They sent me the following:
Thank you for contacting the Walt Disney World Resort.
We appreciate your interest in learning what accommodations are available in our theme park and resort restaurants for our vegetarian guests. Please know that vegetarian plates are available at many counter service locations and at all full-service restaurants, even if they are not actually featured on the menus. Also, our chefs and restaurant managers are always happy to provide information regarding not only the ingredients of menu selections, but also how items are prepared. In many instances, food may be specially-prepared to accommodate particular dietary restrictions. To make reservations for full-service dining (up to 90 days in advance), please call 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463).
First, please know that the chefs and managers in our full-service restaurants are always happy to provide information regarding not only the ingredients of menu selections, but also how items are prepared. In many instances, food may be specially prepared to accommodate particular dietary restrictions.
It is also sometimes possible for our restaurants to prepare food items using special ingredients (gluten-free flour, for example). For this reason, we encourage you to make your particular restriction known when booking advanced reservations arrangements for our full-service restaurants, so that the appropriate notation may be made.
We now have special dietary information on the disneyworld.com website at the following links.
If you have specific inquiries regarding the food served at the park restaurants, guests may contact our special dietary assistants at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
We would also like to mention that as an exception to our standard policy, guests who have specific food allergies are welcome to bring a cooler smaller than 24″ length x 15″ width x 18″ height (which mirrors
the large locker size) into the park with snacks that require no cooking or reheating. Coolers will be inspected for glass and alcoholic beverages which are not permitted. Picnic baskets, ice chests, and
larger coolers are not permitted.
If you have questions or need further assistance, feel free to contact us.
Please include your full name, E-Mail address, and reservation number if applicable on all correspondence.
Hope this helps some of you with your planning! This info is current as of March 2009. Please leave a comment about your experience with anything listed above!
