Breakfast for vegans in Disney World can sometimes be less than thrilling as the common breakfast menu features lots of meat and eggs. We have highlighted the many great vegan breakfast options that can be found around Walt Disney World. Just to note, almost every single breakfast location can make allergy friendly (vegan AND gluten free) Mickey Waffles, we want to focus on the other breakfasts you can find. These breakfasts are in no particular order, because it’s impossible for us to pick our favorite!
Ale & Compass at Disney’s Yacht Club (Table Service)
Ale & Compass is located at Disney’s Yacht Club and could be a great start to your day at either Epcot or Hollywood Studios as they offer boat transportation to both parks. Ale & Compass has vegan options offered for all three meals on the menu! For breakfast you can get the Vegan Protein Bowl which features a Tofu Scramble with Quinoa, Sweet Potatoes, Chard and Kale, Vegan Sausage, Chocolate-Avocado Toast, and Carrot-Ginger Dressing.
Kona Cafe at Disney’s Polynesian Resort (Table Service)
Kona Cafe is located in Disney’s Polynesian Resort and is a great start for a Magic Kingdom day with the monorail access to the park. Kona Cafe is known for their legendary Tonga Toast which can be made vegan upon request! Tonga Toast is a large brick of bread that is filled with banana, soaked in non-dairy milk (when ordered vegan), then deep fried and covered in sugar. This is from a shared fryer. Be sure to request maple syrup as the compote that comes with it contains dairy. Don’t want to do a table service? You can also find this at Captain Cook’s quick service at the Polynesian.
Landscape of Flavors at Disney’s Art of Animation (Quick Service)
Landscape of Flavors is the food court at Disney’s Art of Animation, which is set to have the gondola system opening in late 2019 that will offer access to Hollywood Studios and Epcot. Landscape of Flavors is large, but head over to the Omelet station and you can order a Vegan Seitan Scramble. The Seitan Scramble features tofu, chipotle style seitan, edamame, onions, peppers, and arugula.
Boma Flavors of Africa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge (Table Service)
Boma is a large (non character) buffet found at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. The buffet itself offers several vegan options from asparagus to tater tots. The real gem here is that the chefs will make vegan Mickey Waffles and they even do a tofu scramble which is an actual scramble! This is a great place to head to if you have a day at Animal Kingdom planned since it’s just a short bus ride to the park.
Grand Floridian Cafe at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa (Table Service)
The Grand Floridian Cafe at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort is a fantastic restaurant with accommodating chefs. Here they are willing to make vegan pancakes, tofu scramble, hash browns, and fresh fruit. If you have a day at Magic Kingdom planned, start it here then take then monorail over to the park. If you don’t want a table service option, the Grand Floridian also has a great quick service location.
Gasparilla Island Grill at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa (Quick Service)
Gasparilla Island Grill is a quick service location at Disney’s Grand Floridian. This location has a full vegan menu upon request which includes breakfast! On the menu you can order avocado toast, tofu scramble, and fresh fruit. This is one of our favorite quick service locations in Disney World.
Trattoria Al Forno at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort (Table Service)
Trattoria Al Forno is located at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort. This location is a character breakfast featuring Rapunzel, Flynn, Ariel, and Eric. This location has a vegetarian menu which notes which items can be vegan as well. We haven’t personally been here yet to vouch for it, but any location that has a vegan menu is a win in our book! Disney’s BoardWalk offers boat transportation to Epcot and Hollywood Studios and is within walking distance to both parks as well.
The Wave… of American Flavors at Disney’s Contemporary Resort (Table Service)
The Wave is located in Disney’s Contemporary Resort and is a great breakfast location for a Magic Kingdom day since it’s a short walk to the park. While we wouldn’t recommend the vegan waffles here (very dense), the tofu scramble is a great option! The chefs here are super accommodating and can make a tofu scramble with vegetables of your choice, breakfast potatoes and they have vegan butter for their toast!
