As the authors of a popular Disney travel guide, "PassPorter Walt Disney World 2000: The unique travel guide, planner, organizer, journal, and keepsake," we get a lot of questions about vegetarian and healthful dining at Walt Disney World. So naturally, we jumped at the opportunity to meet Susan and Than (a delightful team!) and to get a copy of their new dining guide. Right away, we knew there was just one word to describe their guide: Delectable!
Ok, maybe a few more words: We love this book! It is extremely well-researched, delightfully written, and deliciously informative. It's one of those rare books that you feel good about just by holding it in your hands, even if you don't read it all the way through. It's easy to look up morsels of information on any eatery at Walt Disney World or in Greater Orlando, complete with fun tips, excellent maps, and a witty, yet friendly writing style. Their views on Disney's eateries dovetail nicely with ours in PassPorter, which helps make two non-vegetarians like ourselves feel confident about the advice they offer.
There's more to this book than just eatery reviews, too. Background information on parks and resorts, useful trivia, and profiles of chefs make this book a between meal treat. And the book itself looks yummy enough to eat, with its tidy design and a pinch of whimsy.
We recommend this guide to the Disney-bound, whether you're vegeterian or not: we think you'll enjoy the level of detail, and learn new things about Disney's eateries. And if you ARE a health-concious traveler, how can you not get this book?

Format: Paperback
The Orlando area, and Walt Disney World in particular are the subject of a great many travel guides, however none up until now, do a particularly good job of tackling the subject from a Vegetarian, Ovo-Lacto, or Vegan perspective.
With a foreward by Sir Paul McCartney, "Vegetarian Walt Disney World and Greater Orlando" is an absolute gem of a book that no Vegetarian visiting the Orlando area should be without.
Metciulously researched, and well written and presented by Susan Shumaker and Than Saffel, with maps, recommendations, and excellent suggestions for healthy Vegetarian and Vegan dining, this guide demonstrates an attention to detail that most other travelling guides lack.
The guide systematically tackles each theme park in turn, featuring over 125 pages of detailed reviews of virtually every restaurant in Walt Disney World, over 30-pages dedicated to Universal, and over 50 pages dedicated to some of the excellent restaurants in the surrounding area that offer Vegetarian options, including some restaurants and cafeterias that are less well known, and yet offer absolutely fantastic fare.
Liberally scattered throughout the length of the guide are suggested touring plans, (paying more attention to fine meals than attractions), some very well thought out ideas for healthy meals to satisfy both Vegetarian kids, and their parents alike, and information about how to make sure that your vegetarian meal really IS a vegetarian one.
Finally, to help those looking for good food in a hurry, two indexes round the book off - one featuring dining establishments that are particularly recommended for Vegetarians, and the other a more general index.
If you are a Vegetarian travelling to the Orlando area, or are travelling in a party with Vegetarians, and want to take just one book with you, make sure it's this one!

For those with a vegetarian lifestyle wanting to enjoy Walt Disney World and the resorts, attractions, and resources of Greater Orlando, pack along your personal copy of Susan Shumaker and Than Saffel's Vegetarian Walt Disney World And Greater Orlando!

Format: Paperback
I went to disneyworld in october. i'm vegan and was excited that there was a book telling me what i could eat and where, i thought it would make my vacation easier. most of the information in this book is no longer true. i even brought it with me and showed chefs at restaurants where it stated items where vegan, and the chefs said they never wear. the biggest disappointed were the almond bearclaws and the beavertails mentioned int he book. NEITHER of which are vegan. the bearclaws have an egg wash on them and the beavertails have dairy in them. Do your own research and don't buy this book. I wasted time reading it prior to my vacation and wasted even more time on my vacation doing my own research about where i could eat. also, all the places which serve boca burgers as mentioned in the book, cook them on the same grill as the meat, and they are COVERED in meaty grease when served. It makes me wonder if the authors have ever even been to disneyworld. if no stars was an option, thats what i'd give this book.
