Sunshine Seasons is a quick service in Epcot inside of The Land pavilion. You can easily find it if you are heading to Soarin’. Over the years they have been accommodating with a vegan option on their menu (at times more than one, RIP Vegetable Flatbread Sandwich). We recently checked out Sunshine Seasons to see if anything new had come out.
Sunshine Seasons is set up like a resort quick service with multiple stations to grab your food. We stopped the first counter and asked a cast member about what our options currently are, they handed us a sheet with the vegan options listed.
The Vegan Korma, to our surprise, has managed to survive for years. The dish is vegan as is and features gardein chick’n, veggies, a korma sauce, and rice. In our opinion it is just okay. We wouldn’t be sad if this was replaced with a new vegan option.
On the list there was the options for beans and rice with potatoes. While this may not seem like an exciting meal, it’s actually pretty good. The beans are flavorful, the potatoes were nice and crispy, and the rice (same as what comes with the korma) is cooked well. You will have to ask the cast member for this option as it’s not listed on any menu.
There was a new option while we were here in the Grab & Go section, the Vegan Jackfruit Gyro. It actually took me a minute to find it and a cast member I asked about it had no idea what I was talking about. We’ve heard mixed reviews about this. A big thing to pay attention to here is the date. I got mine on the day it was packaged. However, if you look closely you can see it was best used by Wednesday. That is a long time for something to be sitting on a shelf that is in a pita with wet ingredients. I would not recommend this gyro unless it was made the same day. So be sure to read the label before making this decision.
I loved my gyro, it had lots of great flavors. The vegan tzatziki that came with it was a little weird. It was super thick and honestly did not have much flavor. It kind of reminded me of a thick sour cream with cucumber chunks and nothing else.
Some other options we saw while there was overnight oats that was completely vegan and made with coconut milk. At the dessert station we saw the vegan cupcake that they have had for almost a year now. The cupcake looks like a sundae but tastes like coconut and is filled with pineapple. It’s very good. We have also heard they have some hidden desserts there (a fruit parfait and an Oreo one) but did not confirm while there.
Sunshine Seasons is always a great option if you have a family of mixed eaters. There are so many different types of options here that someone is guaranteed to find what they would like. Now please, bring back our sandwich!
