Disney parks in California and Florida have responded to the demand for more vegetarian and vegan dining options by steadily increasing the number of plant-based menu items (meaning dishes with no meat, dairy, eggs or honey). But the introduction of even more vegetarian and vegan dishes is sure to please clients who previously had limited non-meat options for their theme park fare.
“Our guests tell us they love that there are more vegetarian and vegan options, so we’re reacting to those compliments,” said John State, culinary director for Disneyland Resort. “And the cool thing is, even non-vegetarians are leaning into these foods.”
In October, Walt Disney World added more than 400 plant-based items to quick-service and table-service restaurants throughout the resort; Disneyland will introduce them in the spring.
Popular plant-based dishes are already available at both theme parks, including potato flautas on the brunch menu at Disney California Adventure Park’s Lamplight Lounge (crispy corn tortillas filled with potato puree and topped with soy chorizo and serrano-tomatillo salsa), and the African Drum Beet dessert at Jiko in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge (chocolate cake, coconut-strawberry-beet mousse, candied beets and balsamic strawberries).
