Vegan @ Disney: Tusker’s Buffet 

What can I say about Tusker’s that hasn’t already been said? 

Vegan Disney World has a good review and a virtual tour (the tour is from 2014, but not a lot seems to have changed).

Well, I can talk about how much fun my 3 year old daughter had. She’s always been afraid of mascots,  and we thought she wouldn’t want to interact with Donald, Daisy, Mickey & Goofy. But the cast members were so patient and engaging that she opened up to them,  growing more confident with each character.

The food was good, with plenty of vegan options on the buffet. A chef gave me a tour of the buffet to show what was and wasn’t vegan. 

The foods was great, especially the plantains, samosas, and roasted potatoes.

The desserts all had dairy ingredients, so they brought me some vegan cookies at the end of the meal. They were good, but not at the level of the rest of the food. But honestly,  the fried plantains were so yummy I didn’t even need the cookies. 

So, thumbs up for the food and thumbs up for the character experience.

Vegan @ Disney: Liberty Tree Tavern

Not pictured: the best sandwich I’ve ever eaten.  I’m really bad at food photography.

We went to the Magic Kingdom two days during our Disney World trip. On the first day, we ate at Cinderella’s Castle. But that’s an expensive, once-per-trip (at most) expedition. We went with something more low-key (and less expensive), The Liberty Tree Tavern.

Like Cinderella’s Castle, Liberty Tree had a few great vegan options on the main menu. We had corn fritters for an appetizer, and I ate the “Vegetarian Proclamation” sandwich. It was amazing, just filled with seasonal vegetables like squash and zucchini and mushrooms. The entire flavor was just too good. I said “I want to just stay here and eat more of these sandwiches all day. I don’t need any more rides.”

Needless to say, we left and did more rides. But the sandwich was just that good.

This isn’t a very expensive meal by Disney standards, but you will need reservations. There just isn’t really any way to get a walk-in.
