Some really great ideas! I wish more of you had remembered the vegetarians, though. Every Disney restaurant has at least one vegetarian entree on the menu. There were a couple of entries here that I loved, but weren't even in the running for my vote because of no veggie option. Special thanks to Dan, Colin, and Eric, for not neglecting the vegetarians :)!

KJ, I did include a "Salads" section in my menu for Dumbo's Big Top Cafe, where I mentioned the special "Dumbo's Lunch" of fresh fruits and vegetables. My menu was not a detailed, complete menu, but I didn't forget vegetarians.

Thanks, James- I did like how you described that salad section!

Hey this is Dominick posting (I dont have time right now to log in), and KJ, I had a few vegetarian options on my menu.

Not to be big headed or anything, but I'm surprised I'm not higher up :(

Brenden, sign up started in May but got full. You might have a chance next year.

Dominick, I especially liked your breakfast choices. Sorry everyone, I didn't mean to imply that the three people I mentioned were the only ones with any veg options on their menus- they were just the ones that stood out to me as having actual, planned, good-sounding (to me) entrees. Spaghetti and/or pizza were on a few menus- usually good options for a vegetarian when there's nothing else, but that's different than offering a fully-planned entree. (Believe me, I'm thrilled when I see spaghetti or pizza at some places- lots of restuarants don't even offer anything without meat). I also realize that the focus of this challenge was not the actual menu items. I think you ALL did a fantastic job with this challenge, and it was one of my favorites to read through so far!
