We’ve made this list to make it easier for you to find plant-based, non-dairy, and meat-free options while on vacation. Don’t forget to read our post for tips on managing food allergies at Disney if you have more questions!
Tips for Eating Vegan at Disney World
When looking for vegan or plant-based options at Disney World, look for the little green leaf symbol on the menu, Disney insures that these dishes are made without animal meat, dairy, eggs, and honey.
The best advice we have for eating at vegan at Disney World is to ask ask ask!
At any Disney restaurant you can ask to speak to the chef or a member of the chef’s staff. You can explain your dietary needs and concerns, and the chef can help you figure out what is available on the menu for you to eat.
You can also ask about items that may not be on the menu. There may be several off-menu items available, and they may apply to your dietary needs. It’s always worth asking to see what you might want to try, and a lot of the table service restaurants have meatless options like Gardein fishless filets, “chicken,” and beefless tips for substitutions.
Although this isn’t always the case, table service restaurants tend to be more accommodating for vegan diners. They have more menu options, may have scratch kitchens, and will have some other choices for you besides salads and Impossible burgers.
With that being said, don’t count out snack stands, bakeries, and Starbucks locations. You can always ask a Cast Member to find out what’s vegan, and thankfully Starbucks has several non-dairy milk options for your coffee fix!
And if you plan on eating at a quick service restaurant, mobile order to make your life easier! It helps with the current global situation and crowd control, lets you order your food in advance, and allows for customization right from the My Disney Experience app!
You may also have more luck eating at international restaurants at Disney World. Asian, African, and Indian restaurants often have naturally vegan options – and most of these have much more flavor than you’ll find on some of the other menus.
Many restaurants in Disney World have “accidental” vegan foods, especially bread services! Not to mention classic snacks like Dole Whip, the Mickey Pretzel (without cheese sauce), and the Pop Secret popcorn are vegan as is!
Best Vegan Food at Magic Kingdom
The Magic Kingdom may not have the most restaurants when it comes to the Disney World parks, but there are several good choices for vegans. You can eat vegan at both Table Service restaurants and at some of their most popular Quick Service restaurants!
Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café
Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café located in Frontierland has some yummy Southwestern and Mexican food, and offer some good choices for vegans. You can order sides of beans and rice, a delicious Southwest salad, and they even offer a Veggie Rice Bowl and a Southwest Cheeseburger that’s a completely plant-based option. Thankfully Pecos Bill has always had a fairly customizable menu, so it’s easy to omit things here – especially when mobile ordering.
Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe
Cosmic Ray’s is located at the front of Tomorrowland, and is one of the places where you can get an Impossible burger on Disney property. You can order the burger, topped with tomato and lettuce, and it comes with a side of fries. They also offer a plant-based sloppy Joe and this isn’t to be missed! These are both great choices for a quick vegan lunch, and it’s always nice to enjoy the air conditioning and a concert by Sunny Eclipse!
Located in a corner of Adventureland, Aloha isle offers one of the BEST vegan Disney World treat options: the infamous Dole Whip. Dole Whip is naturally vegan, and it’s the perfect refreshing and fruity dessert on a hot day. It’s also a great ice cream replacement for those avoiding dairy! You can get this as a float, by itself, or even mixed with another seasonal Dole Whip flavor – the pineapple and raspberry is great together!
Liberty Tree Tavern

Rose & Crown Dining Room
This is a DisneyTrippers favorite! The Rose & Crown offers some of the best vegan choices for a warm, comforting meal. You can get either vegan fish and chips, vegan bangers and mash, or an Impossible Hot Pot – think vegan shepherd’s pie. They have a very customizable menu here, the vegan food here is consistently delicious, and the chef is willing to help out with any dietary or allergy concerns. Just a note though – only the Impossible Hot Pot is listed on the menu and you will have to ask your server or the chef what other vegan options you can get that day!
Sunshine Seasons has a lot of fresh food options, and many of them feature foods grown right in the Land Pavilion. And not only do they sell a Mediterranean-inspired jackfruit and veggie pita sandwich, but they also sell one of the best vegan desserts – the plant-based cookies ‘n cream mousse cup.

Diners can choose from lots of fresh vegetables and salad, tofu, grilled vegetables, and of course, delicious edamame. And you are able to customize several of the entrees to be vegan by substituting tofu for the meat – just make sure you ask them to cook it separately on the grill so it doesn’t come in contact with the meats other guests may order.
Regal Eagle Smokehouse
Located in the American Pavilion, Regal Eagle Smokehouse thankfully offers a great option for eating vegan in Disney World.

And thankfully they don’t leave out those looking to enjoy vegan Disney World food options.
