This review reflects our experience from October 2015.
If you’re traveling with a wide group of eaters then you should head to Sunshine Seasons in the Land pavilion at Epcot. Sunshine Seasons is a large cafeteria style restaurant that offers several food stations and pre-made meals, as well as allergy friendly desserts!
Previously Sunshine Seasons carried a Tamarind Vegan Beef that was made from Gardein® Beefless Tips. Around September of 2015 they changed the vegan item here to Vegan Korma with Gardein® Meatless Chik’n.
The Korma was okay, it had a strong smell of coconut but no taste of it. It was a pretty spicy dish that had cauliflower, peas, carrot, onion and the Gardein® Chick’n. As a whole we really didn’t love it.
The Gardein® Chik’n was okay, not too spongy. One of us had way more cauliflower and the other had way more chik’n in our dishes. The Tamarind Vegan Beef used to be one of our go-to dishes that we would have multiple times in one trip. We were really excited to try this and it ended up being a flavorless flop to us.
We walked around the rest of Sunshine Seasons to see what else was vegan at the time. I came across this Mango Sorbet in a freezer that is vegan and a smoothie that probably changes daily. That day it was a Strawberry Banana smoothie but it did contain honey. Sunshine Seasons still has the pre-made vegetarian platter and hummus pinwheel. You can also find vegetable sushi here too.
One of the best features of Sunshine Seasons it the Special Dietary Treats section. Here you can find Surf Sweets candy and Enjoy Life cookies and brownies. This is a great way to get some snacks to carry with you during the day.
Would we go back?
Probably not for the Korma, but the pre-made hummus platter is still a great option.
