Disney Theme Parks are getting a vegan makeover

Over four hundred plant-based dishes are coming to Disney

The Disney Magic Kingdom is fully embracing the vegan options at all of its theme parks across the USA. Plant options will soon be available at all of its hundreds of food outlets at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. The announcement was made in a Disney blog yesterday  making vegan travel for families just that little bit easier.

Over four hundred vegan dishes will be available and of course many will have specific Disney themes such as a Star Wars-inspired “Tatooine Two Suns Hummus”. 

Across the world vegan options are being added to Disneyland Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland and the Shanghai Disney Resort so the move to offering plant-based options marks a huge commitment.

The momentum and speed of change in offering vegan food choices are noteworthy with a plant-based menu icon, a green leaf logo, to become ubiquitous.

Visitors vegan guides blazed the trail

It was only five months ago that Disney’s Magic Kingdom in Florida launched a visitor’s guide especially for those in search of vegan food. That guide helped guests easily identify items free from animal meat and common animal products. The guide was categorized by area, (Fantasyland or Adventureland), and listed each vegan and veggie-friendly restaurant in that part of the park & what dishes were on offer.

Eric Brent, the founder of the vegan dining guide HappyCow, expressed his delight at the expanded menu.

“Vegans and those seeking plant-based options are in seventh heaven with all the good news and awareness,” said Brent. “We’re certain Disney’s recent increase in offerings will be well received, and hopefully we’ll soon see a day when they go fully compassionate regarding their food options.”

Fans have created numerous online vegan survival guides to help committed Disney vegan visitors to navigate their way around the parks. These were ahead of their time, and now the magical world of Disney is catching up with new consumer habits and needs.

This is great news for vegan families wanting to give their children a very special Disney treat.
