I am a vegetarian who will be traveling to WDW in Jan 09. I will have the dining plan. Should I call the dining reservation number with my dietary needs, or is there somewhere else I should call instead?

Yes, you should call Disney dining with your food issues. I am a pesce-vegetarian with a nut and milk allergy. I'm actually on Prednisone right now as I ingested something I'm deathly allergic to at a restaurant recently. I have never had a problem like that at Walt Disney World. I call with my dietary restrictions and they are ready for me when I arrive.
I actually received a call tonight from Victoria and Albert's. They wanted to confirm my reservations there (my 10th anniversary celebration) and to confirm if I am allergic to nuts, tree nuts, fruit, etc. They are that specific. Her exact words were "we want to find out your needs so that our chef can correctly address them."
Also, you are most likely going to be able to eat right off of the menus. Most Walt Disney World eateries have many vegetarian options. Check out the menus of Walt Disney World on ALLEARSNET.COM. Not only will you find menus, but Deb has a page for vegetarians, vegans, etc. For example, I am going to The Wave, the new restaurant at Disney's Contemporary Resort.
If you go on the site, pls. thank Deb for keeping it updated. She is just a Disney fan like we Disney Moms who does this out of her pure love for the Mouse!
Here's what I have my eye on for my meal at The Wave:
Seasonal Mixed Greens - with spaghetti squash, edamame, flax seed, baby mozzarella and red wine vinaigrette
Avocado and Citrus Salad - with local greens and orange vinaigrette
Seasonal Vegetable Stew- with multigrain rice
Roasted Fingerling Potatoes
There is also a book you can get off of Amazon.com called "Vegetarian Walt Disney World
." To be honest, I bought it, but I don't have any problems finding delicious food there, that I don't use the book. Have a magical time eating green around Walt Disney World!
