Heading to a theme park with dietary requirements can be daunting - will there be enough food options for you to enjoy the holiday? Are restaurants willing and able to cater for your needs? Thankfully, Disney Parks have always been great places to visit if you follow a vegan, vegetarian or even a gluten-free diet, and it’s now about to become a whole lot easier.
Yes, even more plant-based options are coming to Disney Parks, including Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Disneyland Resort California and DisneylandⓇ Paris. These dishes will contain no animal-derived ingredients, which includes meat, fish and dairy products. Most importantly, they will promote the power of plant-based eating, proving that healthy doesn't have to mean tasteless.
Let’s have a look at what’s on the new and improved menu:
Steamed Asian Dumplings from Le Cellier at Epcot - These tasty plant-based meat dumplings are served with bok choy, Chinese long beans, red peppers and radish in a fragrant Asian broth.
Shiriki Noodle Spread from Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen at Magic Kingdom Park - A tantalising dish, made with noodles, edamame beans, mushrooms, green mango and cucumber, tossed in a sweet chili sauce.
Felucian Garden Spread from Docking Bay 7 Food & Cargo at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge (both at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort California) - Made with plant-based ‘kefta’, this spread comes with herb hummus tomato-cucumber relish and pita.
Chili-Spiced Crispy Fried Tofu Bowl from Satu’li Canteen at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park - Crispy tofu and seasoned chili-spice give a taste of Pandora in this dish, all topped with crunchy vegetable slaw, boba balls, and your choice of base and sauce.
Plant-Based Cashew Cheesecake from California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort - Always leave room for dessert! There’s loads more plant-based sweet treats available at Walt Disney World Resort.
These dishes - any many more - are now being offered at Walt Disney World Resort, along with a handy plant-based menu icon, to help diners easily identify which dishes are vegan-friendly. Find them at all major quick service and table service locations, alongside over 400 snacks and treats too.
Disneyland Resort California are introducing the dishes and menu icon in spring 2020, so there’s not too long to wait either.
Disneyland Paris are also getting more plant-based dishes, including European-inspired foods like Risotto-style Spelt with Mushrooms.
Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, or just interested in trying something new, we’re sure you’ll love these new food items - we can’t wait to taste them!
