Eating Like a Vegan at Disneyland

If you’re like our family and wondered whether or not visiting a place like Disneyland would have food for you to enjoy, the answer is YES! Being huge fans of Disney over the years, it’s been really refreshing to see them become more inclusive in their food options. In this blog post you’ll learn how to:

  • navigate the Disneyland app to find options
  • learn our favorites
  • discover which restaurants within the parks offer vegan dishes

How to Find the Vegan Options

First off, I highly recommend downloading the Disneyland App if you don’t already have it on your phone. It’s the easiest way to quickly scan for vegan options in the area that you’re in. Once you’re in the app, tap the magnifying glass and type in “plant based” in the search bar and press enter. A list will populate with all of the places you can find something plant based! The locations you see in bold letters are ones we have experienced.

This list is current as of June 2024 but may change without notice. It’s worth it to browse the app just before you go to see what will be available during the time you’ll be visiting! You can see that we haven’t tried all of the options and sometimes it’s based on the fact that its too costly or that there isn’t sufficient protein in the dish. I have sent an email to the Disney foods team to offer my feedback as a vegan, so hopefully we’ll see more protein options from the Impossible brand such as hot dogs and “chicken” strips/nuggets too!

I hope you enjoyed this post! Until next time Disneyland,
