    Looking to figure out the best places to eat with a vegan family. We are hoping to get to Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, and Epcot. Do you have a good recommendation for each location? Thanks!

    Hello there, Hanina!

    I’m so excited that your Walt Disney World Resort vacation aligns with my favorite festival, EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. If you were mesmerized by Beauty and the Beast’s enchanted rose, I guarantee that the whimsical gardens and outdoor kitchens at the festival will spark your sense of wonder. Last year, the Trowel & Trellis outdoor kitchen had delicious Boneless Impossible Korean Short Ribs. I hope they bring the dish back this year, but look out for the Disney Parks Blog Foodie Guide to the festival to find out what the outdoor kitchens will have to offer. Let’s talk through my favorite sit-down and counter service restaurants with plant-based options at the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks.

    Magic Kingdom Park
    My husband and I recently tried Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen, and we were so impressed by the offerings. We had the noodles, but the allergy-friendly Falls Family Falafel appetizer and Curried Vegetable Crew Stew entree with vegan naan sound amazing. There’s even a special Congo Connie’s Coconut-Curry Concoction entree for the little Mouseketeers, but don’t forget about the best part of the meal- dessert! The Panna-Connie’s Congo Lime Delight with Mango-Lime sorbet sounds refreshing on a hot day. 

    One of my favorite sit-down restaurants at EPCOT’s World Showcase is the Rose & Crown Dining Room. They have some really unique British nature-based food options, such as the Savory Impossible Hot Pot and plant-based vanilla gelato. I also suggest asking the server if they have Vegan Fish & Chips and Vegan Bangers and Mash available.   

    Disney’s Hollywood Studios
    For a real ‘50s-style drive-in “theater” experience, check out the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theatre Restaurant. They have a nature-based Spinach and Artichoke Dip with Cashew Cheese, Flying Saucer Impossible Burger, and the best part- a plant-based Cookie Shake!

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park
    I recommend placing a mobile order at Satu'li Canteen on the My Disney Experience app while you’re waiting in line for one of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park’s thrilling attractions.

    If you or anyone in your party has four or more allergy-friendly requests, you can contact 14 days prior to your arrival to make Special Dietary Requests. Don’t forget that you can start making advanced dining reservations on your My Disney Experience app up to 60 days in advance of your vacation. Even though most reservations are available online at 6:00 am EST, you may find that some restaurants offer reservations as early as 5:45 am EST. 

    May the magic be with you!
