This review reflects our experience from October 2017.
One of the best ways to experience lots of options in Walt Disney World is to resort hop. On our last trip we stayed at the value resort Pop Century and took a quick walk over to Art of Animation for breakfast. We had heard of a Vegan Seitan Scramble over there for breakfast so we decided to check it out for ourselves since we were so close.
We poured our Silk Creamer, that we had purchased at Publix, into a cup and took the 10 minute walk to Landscape of Flavors.
When we entered we looked at the menu board to see which station we would find it at. Landscape of Flavors is much like every other Value and Moderate resort quick service offering stations that will offer waffles, omelets, etc for breakfast then burgers, pizza or pasta for lunch and dinner.
When we checked the menu we didn’t see the scramble listed. This made us worried that this item was no longer available. So we found the shortest line, which happened to be the waffle line, and asked to speak with a chef. When we asked him about vegan options he offered to make us waffles, we were in the waffle line, so I suggested a scramble. This made him light up and then point to the omelet station and mention that there was a vegan scramble over there. We thanked him and went to get in line at the correct station.
You may wonder, why didn’t they just walk around to read what the stations offered? Landscape of Flavors was super busy, as value resorts and breakfast often is, and since it wasn’t on the board up front we just assumed it wasn’t listed here either. Sometimes it’s just easier to ask someone.
While in line we saw that this option is listed on the menu. Why it isn’t listed on the main entrance menu or even Disney’s website, I don’t know, but it’s there! We ordered our Vegan Seitan Scrambles and were told that we may need to wait a bit longer, which is no big deal.
We slowly shifted down the line watching the chef pour egg from a bag (gross) and finally the chef we had asked about vegan options came to the opposite side of the station. There were no omelets being cooked on that side and he began to make our scrambles.
The scramble features chipotle seitan, tofu, edamame, peppers, onions and arugula. They cooked the seitan and tofu first in a lot of oil, so if you’re looking to cut back on that I would definitely suggest mentioning it. They also put some sort of dressing on it, which again, you could probably get without. When our meals were finished being cooked, the last person to handle your food offers a biscuit, we didn’t ask if they were vegan as we assumed they weren’t. The first time we ate there, the cast member asked about biscuits, the second time the cast member was basically putting them on every plate without asking.
The seitan in the dish was awesome. It was full of flavor and a great texture. I was a little worried that the arugula would be too strong of a flavor, but it was just perfect.
This meal packs the protein, which for a vegan breakfast option in Disney World is hard to come by. There was a few different textures and flavors that all stood out on their own. It was a really great dish. Plus it was cheap! We ended up coming here for breakfast twice.
This is a great place to come for a quick and cheap breakfast, and a great resort to explore. If you’ve considered resort hopping, I would highly recommend this one for breakfast. You can always take an Uber or Lyft from your resort to another resort if you don’t have a car or the ability to walk over like we did.
Would we go back?
Absolutely. Cheap, delicious, and filling. This was a great meal!
