Eating Vegetarian in Orlando
If you want to book a dinner reservation at Disney you can book well in advance. We usually book 72 hours in advance but friends of ours who are vegetarian always book at least a week in advance. If you are dining at some of the fine dining restaurants like Victoria and Albert’s Chef’s Table you can make your reservation up to 90 days in advance.
If you' re a vegan or on a strict low-fat diet--or would simply like an extra-special vegetarian meal--call the Walt Disney World main switchboard (407) 824-2222 and ask to be transferred to the restaurant of your choice. Once you get through you can ask to speak directly with a chef, and explain your dietary needs. They can be very accommodating and will often be able to get in specific items if you ask for them. Be sure to get your chef' s full name and to let him or her know the date and time of your visit. You can go to the restaurant as soon as the park opens and tell the host that you have made prior arrangements with Chef X for a special vegetarian meal and get them to confirm this.
Similarly if you have not made prior arrangements go the restaurant as soon as it opens and discuss your requirements with the host.
If you have not made any special prior arrangements, a meal can often be prepared for you at table service restaurants. Ask your server if you can speak with a chef at your table, they will usually be only too pleased to do so and they will discuss with you the proposed menu.
If you are at a quick service location a cast member will usually be able to tell you what vegetarian options you have. However if they are not being too helpful the Manager usually will be.
If you are worried about your dietary requirements not being met you can bring a small cooler of food into any of the parks with you. To avoid carrying your cooler around all day, put it in a rental locker, located near the entrance to each park.
Away from the parks most restaurants offer a good vegetarian selection on their menu. At the all u can eat buffets there is usually more than sufficient options and a great favourite with vegetarians is Sweet Tomatoes. Here you have ample choice including soups.
Wherever you eat in Orlando you should enjoy a variety of choice.
