Answering The Most Googled Questions About Disney World - Vegan Edition


The green leaf symbol shows you what dishes at Disney World are vegan!

If you are planning a trip to Disney World and you are a vegan, or travellling with someone who is vegan, many questions pop into your head. Where can we eat? Will it be difficult? What are the best restaurants for vegan options? I am here to answer them all!


Here are the answers to the most Googled questions about being vegan at Disney World!



Are There Vegan Options at Disney World?

Yes! In fact there are hundreds!


In 2019 Disney announced they would be added plant-based options to hundreds of restaurants at Disney World.


Now nearly all restaurants at Disney World will have at least one vegan option!


Disney also introduced the green leaf symbol to highlight which dishes are plant-based so finding vegan food is now easier than ever!

Check out my Vegan WDW page to download your FREE PDF files that contain every single vegan option available in the Disney World Parks, Disney World Resorts and Disney Springs!




How to Eat Vegan at Disney World?

Just look out for the green leaf symbol (the one in the photo at the top of the page)! Disney introduced this symbol to their menus to make it easier to find plant-based options.


Any dish with the green leaf symbol is free from meat, fish, dairy, eggs and honey.


Disney chefs are also accommodating so if there is a dish you would like to modify to make it vegan please feel free to ask!




Where to Eat Vegan at Disney World?

Luckily you can eat almost anywhere! Almost all restaurants and snack locations will have vegan options. Disney menus will have the green leaf symbol to easily identify plant-based dishes.


Some restaurants at Disney World that aren't owned by Disney may have vegan options but they may not be easily marked on the menu. If this is the case please ask your server what can be made vegan. They will check with the chef and let you know!
