The winter weather here in Central Florida is absolutely perfect for a vegan Disney food review of the al fresco restaurant Geyser Point Bar & Grill at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.
Yesterday one of my girlfriends and I paid a visit to this waterside eatery after a long stroll along the path that connects the Wilderness Lodge Resort to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.
Vegan Disney Food Review: Geyser Point Bar & Grill at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
You can find the Geyser Point Bar & Grill set along the shores of Bay Lake at Walt Disney World’s Wilderness Lodge.
The location is completely outdoors with fans to beat the Summer heat and heat lamps for the rare cool evenings.
Geyser Point Bar & Grill takes its name from the nearby Fire Rock Geyser which erupts and shoots a stream of water nearly 120 feet into the air every hour on the hour.
Geyser Point Bar & Grill Atmosphere
The atmosphere at Geyser Point is rustic and complements the nearby Boulder Ridge Railway Mining carts and water tower.
The outside of the building is made of stone and brushed metal with large exposed wooden beams.
Most of the seating options are casual patio furniture style. There are a handful of proper tables that surround the center bar which provides additional seating.
Request a table on the lake side and watch as ferries scuttle guests back and forth between the resorts and the Magic Kingdom.
Geyser Point Bar & Grill Vegan Food Options
The menu at Geyser Point Bar & Grill is rather small and surprisingly has more than one vegan option. I’ve dined here on several occasions so I’ve had the pleasure of sampling almost everything.
Yesterday I started my meal off with the Edamame ($5.00) with chili-salt off of the “Rustic Fare” section of the menu.
The edamame wasn’t freshly steamed. It had clearly been frozen and reheated. The pods were hard to crack open and were full of water.
I also ordered a side of ($4.49) Waffle Fries. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP! These are the best fries on Walt Disney World property. I only wish there were more in a serving. Side note, a side of fries can be used as a snack credit if you are on the Disney Dining Plan. So if you anticipate having a lot of credits left be sure to go all out ordering extra fries.
For my main I opted to get the modified Grilled Portobello Salad ($9.99) This is a multigrain salad that starts with a base of quinoa and is topped with lightly dressed mixed greens, grilled portobello mushrooms, zucchini, roasted red peppers, onion and a balsamic drizzle. I omitted the goat cheese dressing and my server brought me out a side of emulsified ginger sesame vinaigrette.
And although it’s not listed on the menu, the restaurant does also offer a Beyond Burger with those same delectable waffle fries.
The restaurant has a full service bar with wines by the glass, signature cocktails and craft beer. You can also opt for a refreshing non-alcoholic Wild Strawberry Lemonade ($5.49) on a warm Florida afternoon.
Last but certainly not least. End your meal at Geyser Point on a sweet note with a cup of Dole ($4.29) Northwest Berry Whip!
This Berry Dole Whip isn’t as smooth as the Dole Whip you’ll find elsewhere on property because they don’t have the proper equipment to mix and freeze it. It’s more crystallized and less solid but still hits that sweet fruity spot.
Also, this is the only place at Walt Disney World where you can find Berry Dole Whip.
So there you have it folks. Skip the edamame and indulge your tastebuds in everything else.
Geyser Point Bar & Grill does not accept advance dining reservations. It can be accessed by personal vehicle, ferry from the Magic Kingdom or via bus from any theme park and Disney Springs.
