    This summer we are planning our very first trip to Disneyland. What are some must dos? Rides? Dining? My husband, myself and children are vegan but NOT my stepkids. We are looking to spend two days in Disneyland! Thanks in advance for the help!

    Hi, Victoria!

    I’m so happy you’re planning a Disneyland Resort vacation for your whole family. You’re going to make so many priceless memories discovering the magic of Walt Disney’s original theme park together! From Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Disneyland Park to Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! in Disney California Adventure Park, there’s no shortage of exciting attractions for you to experience. 

    Most restaurants offer allergy menus upon request that are catered to specific dietary needs and can help you identify items that align with a vegan diet. For breakfast, check out Carnation Café on Main Street, U.S.A. Your step children can order traditional breakfast favorites while the rest of you dine on fresh seasonal fruit, steel-cut oatmeal, and even vegan apple-granola pancakes or egg- and dairy-free Mickey waffles made upon request. For lunch or dinner, the unique "outdoor" atmosphere at Blue Bayou Restaurant in Disneyland Park is a must-do of mine, and I’ve heard a great vegan option is the Portobello Mushroom and Louisiana Popcorn Rice.

    Fantasmic! is my all-time favorite nighttime spectacular at the Disneyland Resort and features live performances by Disney Characters—from princesses and pirates to Mickey Mouse himself! I love how the show seamlessly incorporates music, water, fire, laser lights and projected scenes from Disney films to tell a story about the battle between good and evil.

    I hope this helps, Victoria. Please visit us again with more questions as you continue your pixie-dusted planning!

    Wishing you magic,
