Why vegan bashing is "in" now... and why vegans can't take a joke.

A pretty interesting read.
Vegans and non-vegans alike may have noticed a sharp increase in widespread anti-vegan sentiment online lately.

'OMG! There's an organ in my bucket of muscle, tendons, ligaments, bones and skin! Disgusting!'

Sorry people, but if you find something like this disturbing it probably means that you're not supposed to be eating animals.

Great staff. Wonderful service. The concierge, Erika, was very helpful. The beds were nice and comfy, spacious bathroom, nice to have a fridge and microwave innthe room. The walls seemed pretty soundproof too. We found out later that a room near us had flooded when a guest broke the shower knob but the crew cleaned everything up quickly and quietly.

We absolutely loved the mid-century modern tiki atmosphere throughout the motel. We didn't stay here, but we did spend time at the pool and we got to go inside a room. It was spacious and the beds were comfortable (at least for sitting on).

The food was great. We tried the BBQ Tofu burger and the Philly cheese steak and they were both really enjoyable. The server was attentive and our food was on our table less than 10 minutes after we ordered!

The fries were good but it's extremely disappointing when veggie burgers have cheese mixed in to their patties, making them unsuitable for vegans. Guys, if a vegetarian wants cheese on their veggie burger, they can add it. There's no way for a vegan to remove the cheese from inside the patty. There's a really great vegan burger available in another restaurant in property, so I know Disney knows the difference.

I. love. this. place. We're big tiki fans in my house, so we always make a point of stopping here when we're in the area. The drinks are good. The atmosphere is amazing. If you order a Shipwreck on the Rocks, Krakatoa Punch or an Uh Oa bowl it causes the whole bar to come alive with special effects. The drinks are a little on the sweet side sometimes, but they're still tasty and they pack a punch! The bar tenders here are usually very good. We think Bernardo is especially enthusiastic and entertaining. The food here is good too. We're vegan so we often have difficulty finding places to eat at Disneyland. This bar shares a kitchen with a restaurant next door that serves tofu, so the waiters are always able to put that tofu in place of the meat in any dish they offer. The only thing keeping this from being a 4 star rating is that they don't include these vegan options on their menu automatically. UPDATE: Lowered my rating because we are no longer able to make food substitutions and therefore the the only vegan item available from the kitchen is a salad... and who wants a salad with their cocktail?

Good service, mediocre vegan option, cold food. This restaurant recently changed from buffeteria service to table service and received a complete menu change in the process. We made reservations the day prior. When we arrived to check in we were told the wait to be seated was 20 minutes. I reminded them that we had a reservation and they said, "oh yeah. In that case the wait is only 15 minutes." Why did I even bother making a reservation if the warrior would be virtually the same without one? Our waiter was very helpful when we informed her that we were all vegan and that we'd come specifically for the BBQ tofu dish because it was now the second place in the park that actually has something for we can eat. She helped us choose appropriate sides and was quite friendly. Unfortunately, while other dishes seemed to be coming out with nice presentation, thought, and little garnishes, ours came out looking like it was plated by a resentful lunch lady. The flavor of the sauce was great but it was other wish just a sloppy pile of tofu. AND IT WAS COLD. I'm extremely thankful that Disney even put something like this on their menu, but I do wish a little more care was put into making it something we'd want to pay the $20 price for again...
