Babycakes is fantastic! And the great thing is you're starting to see Babycakes products in the fridges at the resorts.
So being a Vegan at Disney World is much easier than you think. Here are a few tips.
1. Book Sanaa, at least once. Sanaa is the only restaurant that has a seperate Vegan menu, and the food is awesome.
2. Get to know your Vegan quick service options. Quick service can be challenging, though Disney is doing more to help this, Animal Kingdom has a Kiosk set up as you walk from Discovery Island to Asia, that is for Allergy/Dietary restrictions. They have snacks, and information on the different restaurants options. In Epcot, Sunshine Seasons now has a Vegan main dish every day, as well as Vegan sushi in the fridge, and Soy milk. Magic Kingdom/Hollywood Studios are still the toughest to find Vegan food in, but it can be done. Do some research online, many Vegans have done it before.
3. Book some restaurants. The amazing thing about WDW is that no matter which restaurant you eat at, you can have Vegan food. When you sit down, speak to your server, and let them know you are Vegan. The chef will come and discuss your options, and often times you'll hear the words "Or I can just put something together for you". Those are my favourite words while on Vacation at Disney, because the chefs will usually come up with something very creative with the ingredients they have.
4. Find you're favourites: We book Tusker House at Animal Kingdom whenever we are there, the chef walks you from station to station pointing out the vegan items. Boma is good too for the same reason, lots of options. The Dining options at Epcot are great, I've had great vegan meals most of the way around the world there. Head to the boardwalk and try Kouzzina by Cat Cora, the flavours they have available make for a great vegan dish.
