Disney Is Adding Over 400 Plant-Based Food Items at Its Parks
Disney Parks have fun rides, iconic themed lands, and magic to be found in every corner, but one thing is a perennial favorite: the food. Mickey shaped everything, colorful churros, fabulous treats, and gourmet meals make waiting in the long lines worth it. Now foodies have even more reasons to love the Magic Kingdom. Disney recently announced new plant-based culinary options that will make vegan and non-vegan gourmands cheer. Starting this month at Disney World and in Spring 2020 at Disneyland, all the restaurants at the parks and some Disney hotels will offer these new dishes.
All of the new food items — over 400 in total — will be noted on menus with a green leaf icon. They’ll be meat, dairy, egg, and honey-free, and made from vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes. There are savory and sweet creations to satisfy every type of palette, and knowing Disney, there will also be some extra TLC involved in making them both delicious and Instagram-worthy. Ahead are just a few highlights of the plant-based food options that you’ll be able to find at the Happiest Place on Earth.
