Advisors, things just got a little bit easier for your clients traveling to Walt Disney World Resorts who are either vegan or have food restraints such as some allergies with plant-based options throughout the parks and resorts.
All of Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort quick and table service restaurants will soon be serving plant-based options. In addition, there will also be a plant-bases menu icon coming to Disney dining. Guests will now be able to choose from hundreds of sweet and savory options, including many new dishes.
For Disney, guest feedback is always considered when evolving their menus and create new dishes. Since guests have shown to embrace the parks plant-based offerings around the globe, Disney was inspired to not only expand their menus, but also introduce a new menu icon, a green leaf, that will make it easier for guests to find these vegan options while visiting the parks and resorts.
The new menu options are made from plant-based ingredients such as vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes. They’re all made without any animal meat, dairy product, eggs, or honey. Guests will be able to indulge in comfort-food options, as well as new dishes.
The new menus will launch on Oct. 1 at quick service locations and on Oct. 3 at table services locations at Walt Disney World Resort, which will also launch the new plant-based menu icon and introduce new options at the theme parks and resort hotels. For Disneyland Resort guests, the plant-based options will be introduced Spring 2020.
A few of the new available options include a plant-based cashew cheesecake from California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, a chili-spiced crispy fried tofu bowl from Satu’li Canteen at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, or a Felucian garden spread from Docking Bay 7 Food & Cargo at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Park at Disneyland Resort, made with plant-based “kefta,” herb hummus, tomato-cucumber relish and pita, and the potato flats from the Lamplight Lounge at Disney California Adventure. Over at Disneyland Resort, the options next spring will include a risotto-style spelt with mushrooms at Disneyland Paris, pan-friend vegetables with plant-based dumplings at Hong Kong Disneyland, or caramel mix nuts banana cake at Shanghai Disney Resort.
But, that’s not all. Disney Cruise Line will also feature plant-based options such as a plant-based chili dog and plant-based eggs to a chocolate truffle cake.
