12 Tips to Eat Vegan at Disneyland and Disney World

Posted by  Annie Leal

Note: There are many more vegan options at Disney besides the ones listed here. These are just some of our faves!

1. Popcorn

Need a quick snack between lines? The regular “butter” popcorn at both Disneyland and Disney World is vegan!

2. Soft salted pretzel

3. Vegan ice cream (at Disney World)

4. Starbucks

Need a quick pick-me-up before you try to conquer all the rides before the park closes? Head on over to the Starbucks in Downtown Disney and use our supercalifragilisticexpialidocious vegan Starbucks guide!

5. Epcot

Believe it or not, a lot of other countries’ cuisines are vegan-friendly. Taste the vegan world all in one day by heading over to Epcot!

Our faves? The vegetable roll at Katsura Grill, the guacamole con totopos at La Cantina de San Angel, and the Mediterranean falafel wrap at Tangierine Café (just be sure to skip the Taziki sauce) are the BEST.

6. Veggie burgers

Many fast-food joints at Disneyland AND Disney World have veggie burgers on the menu! The buns and patties are usually always vegan, but double-check just to be sure. Pile on your favorite toppings and get back in line because “OMG, The Little Mermaid show is about to start!”

7. Vegetarian chili

Some restaurants—like Columbia Harbour House at the Magic Kingdom—at the parks and resorts have vegetarian chili on their menus. Just be sure to pass on the cheese, and you’re good to go!

8. California picks

Oh, Cali? How we love you and your vegan-friendliness. It’s no surprise that Disney California Adventure Park is a seriously vegan-friendly park.

Some of our absolute fave picks? Try the vegetable and tofu skewer from Paradise Garden Grill, the vegan pasta at Wine Country Trattoria, and the Asian rice tofu bowl with mandarin orange sauce from the Lucky Fortune Cookery.

9. Vegan gumbo

Need something hearty that just hits the spot? Stop by the New Orleans district at Disneyland and get yourself a giant warm bowl of vegan gumbo. Yes, you can eat the bowl itself! *MIND BLOWN*  

10. Pineapple Dole Whip

Probably the most talked-about dessert in Disneyland is the Dole Whip … and it’s vegan! Dying from the heat? Head on over to the Tiki Juice Bar and get yourself one of these refreshing frozen pineapple treats!

11. Other options

A lot of people don’t know that Disney actually accommodates vegans on request! Have reservations at a Disney restaurant? Call ahead and let the staff know you’re vegan (be polite!) and see what vegan options they have available or if there’s any way that they can whip something up for you.

12. Bring your own food!

    I had the vegetarian chili at Columbia Harbour House once (without the crackers they put on top which contain dairy) and it was delicious!!

    I thought food technically wasn’t allowed to be brought to Disney World… But then again, i’m known to bring (*cough* sneak) my own vegan snacks to theatre because there aren’t many vegan options.
