You can eat all the vegan meat you want at Walt Disney World Resort.
The entertainment complex, located in Orlando, Florida, has increased its vegan food options, adding a Plant-Based Skillet to the menu at its Whispering Canyon Café in the Wilderness Lodge. The meal initially joined the menu a few months ago as an “on request” item, but has now been added as a permanent option.
Traditionally, the skillets at Disney feature cornbread, corn, beans, and various smoked and barbecued meats.
The plant-powered dish — included among Disney’s “all-you-can-enjoy” skillet meal deal — contains various vegan meats like spicy sausage, mustard-glazed beefless tips, barbecue jackfruit, and “trick’n chick’n” breast coated with vegan herb sauce. Oven-roasted potatoes, corn, sauteéd green beans, carrots, and charred peppers are also included.
Diners at the venue can also enjoy apple vinaigrette and cornbread as well as Pan-Fried Quinoa Cakes — which can be made vegan by ordering without the sauce. Vegan coleslaw, made with a vinegar-based dressing in place of mayonnaise, is also available.
On its lunch menu, the Whispering Canyon Café sells the Impossible Burger, a plant-based beef patty that looks and tastes like a traditional burger.
Vegan Food at Disney
Eager to keep up with the growing demand for vegan food, Disney is always introducing new animal-free options. At Walt Disney World, for breakfast, visitors can enjoy a vegan “scramble” bowl that features plant-based egg by JUST and meat-free sausage by Beyond Meat. The dish is available at the Centertown Market in Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
A myriad of other vegan food is on offer at Disney’s theme parks, especially Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, which was named America’s Most Vegan-Friendly Amusement Park in February.
Disney’s iconic Dole Whip is vegan and available in pineapple, orange, or raspberry flavors. Giant Mickey Mouse-shaped pretzels, which are salty, warm, and fluffy, are also vegan, as are its Mickey-shaped waffles. Plant-based gumbo, pancakes, cupcakes, pizza, pasta, and burgers are also available at Disneyland Park.
Speaking about the award, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), which crowned the amusement park with the title, said, “Once upon a time, theme park food meant hamburgers, hot dogs, and turkey legs. Times have changed, and so have menus.”
Disney’s Plant-Based Skillet costs $33.
