Disney has announced that it will be bringing more “plant based” offerings to domestic Disney parks.
All the major quick and table service restaurants will begin serving these new options as well as utilizing a new menu icon, so guests can determine plant based items immediately.
“We’re always looking for ways to bring more flavor, innovation, and creativity to the Disney dining experience – and guest feedback is first on the menu when we evolve our menus and develop new dishes. Our guests have embraced our plant-based offerings at our parks around the globe, inspiring us to expand our menu and introduce a new menu icon, a green leaf, that will make it easier than ever to find these creations during your visit.
These fun and flavorful options are made from plant-based ingredients like vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes – and are made without animal meat, dairy, eggs or honey. From comfort-food classics to exciting new dishes for the adventurer in all of us, everyone will find something to delight their tastebuds.”
Starting on October 1st, quick service locations will begin to serve these options. The table service restaurants will begin on October 3rd. There will be more than 400 new options rolled out.
Here are a few!

Disneyland will be rolling options out in Spring 2020!
Tt is good that those with vegetarian/vegan dietary preferences have more options! It’s not really my thing, but why not? Just as long as burgers, steak and fries stay, my kids will be happy.
