Disney recently announced that they will be expanding their plant-based menu.
For those of you who don’t know, I switched to a plant-based diet at the young age of 12. So, these new options will, no doubt, greatly enhance my meal options the next time I’m on a Disney vacation.
The new items will range from comfort-foods to exciting new dishes, snacks, and treats. And I can not wait to try them all.
More Plant-Based Dishes Are Coming to Disney Parks
I’m sorry to say that I’ve gotten my fair share of ridicule for choosing plant-based foods over meat-based dishes ever since I was young.
Thankfully, Disney has been helping to change the minds of the people who once judged me. The additions of sweet and savory creations are proving how delicous plant-based dishes are.
With so many brand new dishes being added, Disney is adding a brand new icon to the menu.
A green leaf will make it easier to find vegan and vegetarian items on the menu.
An allergy guide is available at every restaurant. Since vegan and vegetarian items share the same icon, an allergy guide will show which foods include eggs, dairy, and honey.
We will start seeing new items rolled out in the next few weeks in Walt Disney World and in the next few months in Disneyland.
If a Disney Cruise is in your plans, plant-based Chili Dog, eggs, and Chocolate Truffle Cake are all on the menu.
