There are a lot of wonderful vegan options at Disneyland! Here's just a few (private message me for more detailed info..I can also tell you which things you'd think you could make vegan that you can't...)

"Chefs vegan burger" at the Carnation Cafe on MainStreet
Vegetable Gumbo in a bread bowl at the Royal Street Veranda in New Orleans Square (my favorite!)
Sweet Potato Fries at the Hungry Bear in Critter Country
Vegetable Kabobs at Bengal Barbecue in Adventureland
A few customizable options at Blue Bayou in New Orleans Square
Frozen 100% apple juice at the cart in Fantasyland
just to name a few!

over at DCA there are several great options as well..
Massive Burritos (make sure to ask for "no cheese or sour cream") at Cocina Cucamonga in Pacific Wharf
Tofu Bowl at Lucky Fortune Cookie (depending on the sauce you get with it)
Uniquely flavored popcorn at the Cozy Cones in Carsland (I've had both dill pickle and salt and vinegar before...it changes depending upon the day, and ALL flavor are vegan! even "butter" and "bacon"!)
Red's Apple Freeze at the Cozy Cones in Carsland (this is delicious, it's mostly made of frozen applejuice, but it also contains passion fruit foam and a vegan marshmallow syrup)

LaBrea Bakery (In Downtown Disney, just outside the gates of DCA) has a vegetable pannini that can be made vegan by omitting the cheese.

Lots of other snack options as well!

Back from the World a couple weeks ago and just thought I would mention two very good meals I had while I was there. One was the Spaghetti and "Meatballs" at the 50's Primetime Cafe. I actually ate in the bar area since I was solo. The meal was very good and was pretty basic which is good for me. The other was at the Rose and Crown at the England pavilion. Had the Vegetable Stone Pie off the lunch menu. Now that was good stuff. Both very good vegetarian options. Also the AllEars menus were life savers as I am kind of picky and was able to check out all the restaurants to see what was available.

FYI, the French Onion soup at BoG is vegetarian. I about crawled out of my chair with excitement. It's not vegan, due to the cheese on top, but I *think* it would be if you omitted the cheese. Not completely certain.

Plasticletters, do you know if the Vegetarian Chili at DL contains mushroom (pieces, protein, powder?) I am a long-time vegetarian with a mushroom allergy, and I am in the process of giving up dairy. I am ten days off of it and had a bit yesterday and cannot believe how much it affected me, so it appears this change will be permanent. (My intention was to ease up while I traveled, and allow dairy in limited quantities.) I am beyond excited about the items you listed at the Cozy Cones!

Are there any Resort restaurants that you have to visit each time even when you aren't staying at that resort? What are your favorite Resort restaurant entrees?

Thank you all so much for the tips and Meal ideas! DH and I are Vegan and DD is a vegetarian...we are taking our first trip to Disney World in 3 weeks!
So many food options..so excited!

I have a few questions tho- I have seen mixed info on diff blogs an websites

1) do i have to request a dairy free bun at cosmic rays for the veg burger?
2) we are staying at AoA - is that veg burger bun vegan?
3) yay or nay on the dole whip being vegan now?

I am so excited for babycakes!

I will be sure to "pay it forward" and share my food porn pics here when we get back!

Dole Whip should be vegan - ask to see ingredients if you're not sure.


Don't know about the buns at AoA, but they have soups that are either veg or vegan - they had carrot ginger when we were there in Jan!

Is it well known that the cupcakes (not babycakes) aren't even vegetarian?

I had occasion to notice it at DiseyLAND (gelatin twice in a specialty cupcake at Hungry Bear), and I recently read a post elsewhere that seemed to indicate that it's known at WDW, too (referencing lard).

Is this across the board at WDW that it's lard being used?

I did try once of the cupcakes two years ago, and it was awful, so it's not even that I desperately want one, but I would like to know.

And maybe we'll try babycakes again. We really disliked our choices the previous time we tried them, but there was a delay in eating them, so maybe that's why.



It's really neat that the french onion soup at BOG is veggie.

I'm glad to hear that the Spaghetti and Meatballs are still there. The menu on Dis lists Uncle Dana's Artichoke and Risotta Agnolotti as the veggie option, which did not appeal to me.

If you have a chance to get the chocolate chip
Cookie sandwiches from babycakes you won't be disappointed! They are sooooo super decadent and delicious.

I don't think it's widely known. The last I'd read (which admittedly has been some time) was that it was up for debate. The ingredient book at Starring Rolls definitely says "shortening," although it's a bit of an ambiguous term. Seems that it could go either way. I would get ahold of the allergy book if you are concerned and see whether it is listed.

Gelatin is a different bird. I believe it is hit or miss - Zebra Domes, for example, have it, but other baked goods do not. To be honest, although it grosses me out, it is one of those foods that I will put "out of sight, out of mind." It doesn't cause stomach upset like I would have if I ate chicken fat or similar, so if I don't know it's there, I just pretend it's not. (I have literally told chefs, 'if it contains Worcestershire Sauce or gelatin, just don't tell me,' lol.) I know that's weird... my point is just I am not the leading authority on gelatin, lol.

Babycakes website lists their entire bakery as vegan.

My daughter is vegan and loved the quinoa cakes at Whispering Canyon and something the chef made for her at Ohana..we told the waiter at each restaurant and at a couple of restaurants at the resorts, the chef actually came out and talked to her about what sounded good (that's what the chef did at Ohana). I was very impressed with the way Disney handled her dining needs.

Could you describe the Vegetable Stone Pie? I've read the menu description and can't figure out what this is. We had planned to eat there on our last trip and DH was turned off when we saw the vegetarian entree was changed from the curried vegetable dish to the Vegetable Stone Pie. What is it exactly and is it served hot or cold? Thanks!

What a great thread!

I am by no means a vegetarian but I often find myself choosing meatless items on a menu or when making things at home. I will be going with my friend and both of our daughters to WDW in May and while she is not a vegetarian either, she prefers organic meals, preferably meatless. So I know Sunshine Seasons is a good spot (not sure if they classify it Organic though???) and I know I'm going to FORCE her to get a grown up grilled cheese and dole whip from Captain Cooks but then I thought I should put together a list of good places for us beforehand. We will only be doing quick service and we'll need spots that our daughters can find something too (they eat like us so that's not too hard!) So thank you for the info in this thread!!!! I've got some good ideas.

So tell me what you think of my list so far -

Kona Cafe - Last time we dined here, they let me order it to go! The mango sushi is my daughter's favorite!!
Captain Cooks - Specifically for the kids & grown up grilled cheese, tomato soup, and dole whips
(we are staying at the Poly - it's a surprise for everyone so shhhh!)

Be Our Guest??? - There seems to be some debate over this one.
Columbia Harbour House - My favorite no matter what!
Sleepy Hollow - Nutella waffle (where is that drool emoticon???)

Studio Catering Company - veggie sandwich looks good
Toy Story Pizza Planet - I've always liked the veggie pizza

Sunshine Seasons
Tangierine Cafe

We most likely won't go to AK, but if we do, I'll probably head to Flame Tree for the fruit plate (and I'll get ribs, yum!)

Anything else you recommend? And by any chance, is ANYTHING certified Organic at WDW??? I've never made an attempt to look in all the trips I've taken

THANK YOU!!!

So just got back from my stay at POR.


For those interested (since I asked before I left) BOG was able to make the turkey sandwich at lunch vegan or vegetarian. DS and I had it with cheese and it was delish. DH had the veggie quiche and while not as good as mine he thought it was great for CS.
