When we took my parents to Disney World back in 2015, after they had gone vegan, there really weren’t many options for them in terms of food. Luckily, Disney is very accommodating to dietary needs and they were able to get some really good meals. Needless to say, I’m so excited that the plant-based trend is catching on and now Disney is adding hundreds of new dishes to their menus.
When we were at Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival last week, we visited the Earth Eats Marketplace. This particular booth focused on all plant-based foods and the cottage pie was delicious. If they can do that with the Impossible line of foods, I can only imagine what else they are coming out with. Here are all of the details from Thomas Smith at Disney Parks Blog.
Exciting news for our foodie fans! We’re thrilled to announce that ALL of our major quick and table service restaurants will soon be serving up plant-based options at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort – along with a new plant-based menu icon coming to Disney dining. Our guests will now be able to choose from hundreds of sweet and savory creations, including many brand-new dishes destined to become fan favorites!
We’re always looking for ways to bring more flavor, innovation, and creativity to the Disney dining experience – and guest feedback is first on the menu when we evolve our menus and develop new dishes. Our guests have embraced our plant-based offerings at our parks around the globe, inspiring us to expand our menu and introduce a new menu icon, a green leaf, that will make it easier than ever to find these creations during your visit.
These fun and flavorful options are made from plant-based ingredients like vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes – and are made without animal meat, dairy, eggs or honey. From comfort-food classics to exciting new dishes for the adventurer in all of us, everyone will find something to delight their tastebuds.
On October 1 at quick service locations and October 3 at table service locations, Walt Disney World Resort will launch the plant-based menu icon and introduce new options at our theme parks and resort hotels. If you’re craving tasty plant-powered snacks and treats during your visit, you can explore more than 400 craveable dishes!
