Disney To Launch 400 Vegan Dishes At US Locations Next Month


2 Minutes Read

Disney has announced it will be launching more than 400 vegan dishes at its US locations and hotels from October 1.

According to Disney, its eateries in Walt Disney World in Florida will be serving new animal-free dishes from October 1 at quick service locations and October 3 at table service locations, with the new options coming to Disneyland in California in Spring 2020.

The dishes on offer will include Steamed Asian Dumplings from Le Cellier at Epcot, Shiriki Noodle Salad from Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen at Magic Kingdom Park, and Plant-Based Cashew Cheesecake from California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

‘Guest feedback’

“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,” said a statement by Disney.

“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.”

‘Fully compassionate one day’

The move was praised by some vegans, with Eric Brent, founder of the vegan dining guide HappyCow, saying he hopes Disney will ditch all animal products one day.

“Vegans and those seeking plant-based options are in seventh heaven with all the good news and awareness,” he said.

“We’re certain Disney’s recent increase in offerings will be well received, and hopefully we’ll soon see a day when they go fully compassionate regarding their food options.”
