Vegetarian Eats at Walt Disney World

One thing that seems to continually surprise people during their trips to Walt Disney World is the quality of the food!  At many theme parks, your choices can be limited to burgers, hot dogs, and fries.  While you can definitely get those items at Walt Disney World, there is more to enjoy!  Disney has gotten very good at catering to guests with all kinds of dietary needs.  At each park and at Disney Springs, you can find pescetarian, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, low calorie and many other kinds of food.
I'm a pescetarian and I've never found an issue finding something to eat at Walt Disney World.  Here are some of my favorites:
I can't make any sort of food list without including my favorite snack on property.  You all know how much I love Disney snacks, so picking one as my favorite is a big deal.  The Citrus Swirl can be found at the Sunshine Tree Terrace in Adventureland in Magic Kingdom and it's a swirl of frozen orange juice and vanilla soft-serve.  Take this one into the Enchanted Tiki Room and enjoy pure classic Disney!
Satuli Canteen in Pandora -the World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom is a should be on everyone's must-eat list, not just vegetarians.  While I love the fried tofu that is one of the protein options here, I've heard really good things about the steak as well.  This was the counter-service restaurant to debut mobile order, and it's one of my favorite recent additions to Walt Disney World.  Plus, it doesn't get cooler than eating in Pandora.
I could eat breakfast every meal of the day.  This is especially true at Kona Cafe, located at Disney's Polynesian Resort, just a monorail ride away from Magic Kingdom.  Tonga Toast is also available at the resort's quick-service location, Captain Cook's.  It's a thick, crusty bread turned french toast with bananas in the middle and a cinnamon sugar crust.  It's also served with a strawberry compote on the side.  It's a delicious way to start your Disney day!
As long as we're talking about breakfast, I also need to mention Mickey waffles.  These are available at the food courts or quick-service locations of almost every Disney resort hotel.  Many of the meals featuring these little guys come with sides of bacon or sausage.  You can ask them to switch the meat for a different side, like I did during this meal at Coronado Springs, opting for scrambled eggs instead.  PS:  This is a kids meal.  Disney portions are huge.  If you won't finish a full adult sized meal, consider opting for the kids size, saving money and valuable stomach space for more Disney snacks!
The Polite Pig in Disney Springs has a ton of buzz and what I hear from my carnivore friends, it's well deserved. So why would I recommend a barbecue restaurant for vegetarians?  The sides, of course.  On a recent trip to WDW, we had a reservation at Homecomin' but a couple of hours before our scheduled dinner time, we were feeling in the mood for a snack.  We stopped at The Polite Pig and tried their sides.  They were fantastic!  Pictured here are the waffle fries, grilled corn, and watermelon salad.  All were delicious!

This is just a sampling of good vegetarian eats at Walt Disney World resort.  What are some of your favorites?

Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios

After much anticipation, Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios is finally open!  The more information I read and pictures I see, the more excited I am (the opening day crowds, not so much).  Originally, I was not super excited about this land coming to Hollywood Studios (though I know that the park needed something for the younger kids).  However, now that it's finally completed, I can't wait to go!
Some of the favorite things we love about Pixar Place are still going to be present. 
Ever interacted with these guys? They are so much fun! Fan favorite Toy Story Mania is still around so you can still play and try to beat your record.  I still haven't figured out how to beat Nicole.  I'm always leading until the final round and then I never win. It's maddening :) Plus there are two new attractions to enjoy: Slinky Dog Dash & Alien Swirling Saucers. I have to admit, I wasn't too excited for either attraction and Nicole and I discussed skipping them …

Storybook Character Dining to Debut at Artist Point at Disney's Wilderness Lodge

I'm so excited about today's update!  Character dining is coming to Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  This winter, Snow White, Dopey, Grumpy, and the Evil Queen will welcome guests to dine with them at Artist Point. 
Information is limited at this time, but we do know that it will be a prix fixe menu with shared appetizers, a delicious entree and dessert.  We're still eagerly waiting for information on the opening date, menus, and how many dining plan credits this experience will require.  However, I immediately thought of my fellow Dopeys when this information was released.  How great would this be as a celebration meal after completing the Dopey Challenge?
What do you think? Are you excited for this option?
