    Hello, I hope you are doing well! I have a question about eating plant-based at Disney World’s parks. I haven’t been to any of the parks in a few years and I was curious how easy it was to eat vegan/plant-based these days? Thanks!

    Alice in Wonderland said, "I suppose I ought to eat something or other, but the great question is what?" I'm sure you've found yourself thinking that, Richard, because as a plant-based eater myself, I've struggled to find delectable dishes while on vacation. But I'm so glad you stopped by planDisney because I have some excellent news about plant-based options at Walt Disney World Resort, and no one needs to lose their head over it!

    When you next return to the theme parks, you'll be as delighted as a door mouse with all the plant-based items you'll find. More people than ever are eating plant-based products, and Disney has taken note. Menus at both Table Service and Quick Service restaurants specify if an item is plant-based, and nearly every restaurant has at least one or two plant-based main dishes. I'd recommend you look over online menus before your visit to see what dishes are currently offered. Then, once you're at the parks, feel free to ask your server if any additional items can be altered to be plant-based or if there are any off-menu items.

    For example, Rose and Crown Dining Room at EPCOT has a plant-based Savory Impossible Hot Pot on its menu. This is a tasty dish with Impossible crumbles, mashed potatoes, and yummy vegetables. But if you ask about other items, your server will probably mention the plant-based Fish and Chips at the quick-service pub around the corner, and they'll happily run over and grab a generous serving for you. 

    Richard, if you're not a fan of alternate meats, there are still plenty of options. One that comes to mind is the Curried Vegetable Crew Stew with tofu at Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen at Magic Kingdom Park. And at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Tiffins Restaurant offers a delicious North African-spiced Tofu entree. 

    Are you more apt to eat on the go? Disney's Quick Service restaurants have got you covered with plant-based options, too. One of my favorite Quick Service meals is at Woody's Lunch Box at Disney's Hollywood Studios, where you can get Plant-based Totchos which are tater tots covered in chili and cheese. Talk about comfort food!

    As a plant-based eater, I feel perfectly at ease eating at Walt Disney World, Richard. If I have any questions, I've found that servers and chefs are happy to talk to me about ingredients. Disney does many things well, and I would absolutely add plant-based offerings to that list. I'd love to hear some of your favorite finds if you make it back to the parks! Please feel free to stop by planDisney anytime.
