Plant-Based Dining Expanding at Disney Parks Restaurants

For years, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has been industry leaders when it comes to special diets. Whether a dietary restriction, food allergy or even a lifestyle diet, the chefs go above and beyond to ensure your needs are met. Click here for more information on dietary restrictions.

Now, Disney Parks has announced that hundreds of plant-based dishes will be added to the menus at both Walt Disney World® and Disneyland® Resorts! These fun and flavorful options will be coming first to the Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida (Oct. 1 for quick service locations and Oct. 3 for table service locations) and later in spring 2020 at the Disneyland® Resort. All of the major Disney-owned quick service and table service restaurants will have at least one offering which will be easily identifiable by a new plant-based menu icon designation.

Not quite sure what a plant-based dish is? It’s a meal made with ingredients like vegetables, legumes, fruits, grains, nuts, and seeds – and made without animal meat, eggs, dairy, or honey! As just a taste of what’s to come, some of the upcoming dishes include Steamed Asian Dumplings, Shiriki Noodle Salad, Felucian Garden Spread, Chili-Spiced Crispy Fried Tofu Bowl and Plant-Based Cashew Cheesecake.
