It seems right now Disney has gone back to it’s easy vegetarian option everywhere and all we can really find are vegan burgers. Way back in the day we could always find a veggie burger somewhere, and most of what we ate on trips were those Gardenburger patties. Now we have shifted from those and most places offer a Beyond or Impossible burger. So when you’re here for a few days you eventually start looking for something with real vegetables and without faux meat. We found one of those options at Disney’s Beach Club Resort.
Inside this resort is the Beach Club Marketplace which has a quick service style area inside of the resort store. Most of the food is pre-packaged and on the shelf ready to go. Within this area is a Grilled Vegetable and Hummus Sandwich which is marked as plant-based.
We grabbed the sandwich from here and went back to our cabin at Fort Wilderness for lunch. The sandwich was filled with portobello, zucchini, yellow squash, onion, cauliflower, roasted red pepper, tomato, and a hummus on a multigrain bread.
This sandwich was awful. The bread was pretty soggy, all those vegetables and it tasted like absolutely nothing. Everything was just cold and mushy, there was no real texture to it. The only texture I noticed was the kind of cooked but still hard cauliflower that was on the sandwich.
I was hoping this was a fresh sandwich. I think this is something that has to be made to order to actually be good. When it sits on the shelf it gets mushier and just cold and is not great.
The sandwich came with house made chips. These were the best part of this meal. They were seasoned well and had a really nice crunch to them.
I would not go out of my way to get this again, even if I just wanted to get some vegetables. They do also have a vegan chili here, that is what I would get if I ate here again.
Review from November 2020.
The plant based brownie at the beach club marketplace is really good. It’s kinda fudgy and just tastes like a good brownie.
That looks like the same sandwich I had at Contempo Cafe last year. I was excited to see huge chunks of vegetables in it, but it was terrible. I couldn’t even finish it, which is something I don’t say often about food at Disney.
