6. Disneyland Grand Californian – Anaheim, California

Disneyland Paris to Bring the Vegan Magic at Upcoming Food Festival

What better place to vacation than the Happiest Place on Earth? Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa perfectly replicates that cozy feel of a rustic lodge nestled in the woods, yet the amenities are above and beyond. With Downtown Disney, Disneyland, and California Adventure Park literally steps away, there is plenty to keep the kids entertained (they’ll sleep like a rock after all of that stimulation). However, adults can also relax at the hotel’s luxury spa, or enjoy a romantic dinner at California Adventure’s Wine Country Trattoria. Although not all food is vegan, Disneyland is increasing its options, and all the staff are trained and attentive to dietary preferences. The hotel’s restaurant, Storytellers Café, offers character dining and vegan menus. You can also speak with the chef for a custom meal.
