It’s that time of year again, a new one! Which means it’s time for us to list our favorite foods from Disney World in 2017. Let’s dive right in!
California Grill — Vegan Unplugged
At California Grill in Disney’s Contemporary resort you can find a full vegan menu with tons of options to choose from. Make sure to come back and view the Magic Kingdom fireworks from their private balcony on the day of your reservation. Read our review here.
Trail’s End — Chef TJ Meal
If you’ve been following us for a while you know we love our main man Chef TJ at Trail’s End. Trail’s End is a buffet at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground where Chef TJ gives those with special diets the royal treatment. Come in hungry and roll on out! Read our most recent review here.
Sunshine Seasons — Vegan Flatbread Sandwich
This was a new one for us this year. Sunshine Seasons at Epcot has had a vegan item on the menu for years, but now they added this incredible sandwich! Loaded with vegetables, a black bean spread and tofu cheese! Keep these creative dishes coming Disney!
Landscape of Flavors —Vegan Seitan Scramble
Breakfast at Disney for vegans has been pretty much sweets only for the last few years. We’ve finally seen more restaurants making scrambles, but Landscape of Flavors at Disney’s Art of Animation really stepped it up with an on the menu vegan seitan scramble! Read about it here.
Epcot Food and Wine Festivals Greece Booth — Loaded Greek “Nachos”
Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival is one of the highlights of the year. Every fall Epcot’s World Showcase is filled with even more booths featuring more countries. Our favorite dish this year was the Loaded Greek “Nachos” which featured vegan sausage, vegan tzatziki AND vegan feta! This dish was so good we shared the recipe to make it at home.
Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory — Plant-Based Burger
It’s no secret now that the Beyond Meat Beyond Burger has made its way all over Disney property. One of our favorites was the burger at Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory. They even have Daiya vegan cheese here to put on it. Just double check the bun if you avoid honey as they change them so often. Read about our review here.
Satu’li Canteen — Chili-Spiced Crispy Fried Tofu Bowl
Pandora finally opened at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and with that opening came one of the best new quick service options on property. Satu’li Canteen is tucked in the back of Pandora and offers a Crispy Fried Tofu Bowl with 4 vegan bases and a vegan chimichurri. Just be sure to leave off the boba balls since they contain yogurt.
Ale & Compass — Grilled Plant-based “Bacon Cheeseburger”
Ale & Compass opened up late November at Disney’s Yacht Club. This restaurant has several vegan items for all three meals. Our favorite being the Bacon Cheeseburger which features Beyond Meat Beyond Burger, Daiya Cheddar Cheese and Sweet Earth Benevolent Bacon. This is one of those dishes that makes you think “am I really eating this in Disney?”
Gasparilla Island Grill is a quick service restaurant at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. This restaurant features an entire vegan menu and between four of us we ate most of it and couldn’t pick just one item. The pizza is great and we have always enjoyed the build your own salad here. They also carry both Gardein vegan burgers and a standard veggie burger.
Biggest fail of 2017
Cape May Cafe — Buffet/Chef Dish
We went to Cape May Cafe at Disney’s Beach Club with our family and had an awful experience. The chef was willing to ‘make’ us some steamed carrots and walked us through the buffet. The buffet items included raw potatoes and cold corn on the cob. We won’t be heading back there.
