Eating breakfast at Walt Disney World as a vegan has changed drastically over the last few years. No longer are our only options fruit or an Allergy-Friendly Mickey Waffle. When we stayed at Disney World this last weekend we decided to head over to Disney’s Wilderness Lodge for breakfast one day.
Located in the main lobby of the Wilderness Lodge is Whispering Canyon Cafe. This restaurant is known for their all-you-care-to-enjoy family style meals, and of course fun servers who heckle you throughout the meal. Even with a face-shield, our server still brought the fun to our table with throwing sugar packets down and calling it pixie dust and more.
On the menu the vegan option here is the Pepper Jack ‘Cheese’ Frittata. The frittata comes with potatoes, toast, and a vegan sausage. The frittata is made from JUST Egg and is topped with the same vegan pepper jack as on the Maple-Chipotle BBQ Braised Jackfruit Dip at lunch and dinner.
The portion of this dish is massive. The meal comes on the same skillet that is given when you get the all-you-care-to-enjoy meal for one. However, this is not an all-you-care-to-enjoy style entree.
The frittata was delicious. The “egg” was very fluffy and had red peppers, green peppers, and onion in it. The pepper jack cheese added a little heat to it, which was very good. This is the first time I’ve had JUST Egg at Disney World and really truly enjoyed it. I wasn’t a big egg person before going vegan, but the fact that this was fluffy and not grainy at all was a big win for me.
The Frittata did need a bit of salt, but otherwise was very good. After the meal Corey said he should have made it into a sandwich with the bread. I think that might happen next time.
The potatoes were cooked perfectly with a bit of a crisp and well seasoned. I had to stop myself from eating them all right off the bat!
The sausage was a basic Beyond Sausage brat, and it was cooked well as well. The “skin” had a nice snap to it and it was a good accompaniment to the plate.
We were able to get some vegan butter for our toast. The bread itself wasn’t very toasted.
For Finn we got him the Kids Allergy-Friendly Waffles, which are vegan and gluten free. He had the choice of two sides with his meal so we went with toast and fruit. You can also get potatoes, they have sausage listed too which I assume you could swap for the vegan one if you ask.
For drinks here, Finn was able to get a Vanilla Silk Soy Milk, they also had chocolate available. For our coffee our server brought us some rice milk in a little pitcher.
This might be my new favorite Disney World breakfast. The meal was incredibly filling and full of flavor. We will absolutely be going here for breakfast again. This is one of our favorite spots for vegan food at Walt Disney World for all meals too!
