Disney World is the iconic destination for family vacations, but the food available hasn’t always been the best for health, the animals or the planet. Recognizing that parents are looking for more plant-based options for their families, Disney has recently launched a new online Plant-Based Dining Guide. They are in the process of adding over 400 new plant-based menu items to their parks and properties, starting with Disney World in Orlando, FL this October.
“Our plant-powered cuisine is made with plant foods like grains, nuts, vegetables, and fruit—and no animal meat, dairy, eggs, or honey,” the guide states. “Whether you are looking for savory snacks, a quick meal or a 3-course dining experience, you’ll find more plant-based options at Walt Disney World Resort than ever before.”
The guide—which advises guests to look for a leaf symbol to locate plant-based dishes—is divided into Disney World’s various properties, including theme park Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom Park, Hollywood Studios, and Disney Springs, in addition to its boardwalk, water park, and hotels.
Even if you’re not vegan, the options look both plentiful and hunger-inducing. Some of the most enticing vegan dishes include Thai noodles or black bean chips with pineapple jalapeno hummus in Adventureland, a pineapple float in Aloha Isle, and plant-based meat substitutes like meatloaf in Liberty Square and a Southwest burger in Frontierland.
The online guide also notes which restaurants are quick service, table service, or available for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It’s sure to be useful for families looking to enjoy their visit and not have to worry about finding good plant-based food to eat!
