Planning a Disney Trip: Vegan Options


So we’re planning a trip to Disney World in Florida, one my wife has almost entirely paid for via clever use of credit card reward points programs.

So in addition to buying  new walking shoes and training for the many miles we will walk each day,  we’ve been researching just how I’m going to find something to eat. 

Fortunately, “The happiest place on earth” generally knows how to take care of vegans (And anyone with dietary restrictions,  whether they’re religious, allergies,  our whatever).

I’ll go through park by park in a later post, but today I’ll start with a few universals.

Disclaimer:  I’m still planning my trip,  so all this info is second-hand. 

  • popcorn (it’s not real butter) 
  • pretzels 
  • Anything made with Gardien Chick’n
  • Sorbets
  • Dole pineapple whips
  • Most of the quick serve places have at least something you can eat
  • Use the Disney app to check the menus ahead of time

Any nice sit down restaurant or buffet IF you tell them when you make your reservations and again when you get there

Basically, any place that takes reservations will take care of you if you ask. You should ask in advance if you can,  but I’ve read several accounts of vegans having good experiences even without calling ahead.

The Disney World app. Seriously. 

PETA has a good info page on Disney vegan options. (regardless of some of their questionable actions over the years).

The Vegan Disney World blog is also great.
