Walt Disney Wednesdays - Elisa & Kelsey’s Top 5 Disney World Vegan Eats Even Non-Vegans Will Love!
Hey there and Happy Hump Day!!
With today being Wednesday, we are thrilled to bring you another article about Walt Disney World, so let's get to it!!
Elisa & Kelsey’s Top 5 Disney World Vegan Eats Even Non-Vegans Will Love!
1. Vegan Breakfast at The Garden Grill (EPCOT)
If you are looking for a yummy breakfast that is both filling and satisfying, we strongly recommend that you attend the Chip ‘n’ Dale Harvest Feast at The Garden Grill located in Future World.
Not only do you and your Disney lovers get to enjoy vibrant views of the Living with the Land exhibit in this rotating restaurant and get to enjoy some lovely encounters with Chip, Dale, Pluto and Mickey, but you will tantalize your tastebuds with their all-you-can-eat breakfast!
This place is excellent for vegans!!! And of course it's spectacular for non-vegans as well. Garden Grill’s skillet breakfast for vegans includes an array of sweet and savory offerings served family style. Their signature Rice and Bean Loaf is hearty, flavorful and crispy and is served with ‘potato barrels’ (better known as tater tots), along with Disney’s iconic Mickey vegan waffles and scrambled eggs (for those who eat them). Fresh fruit rounds out the meal, making it one of our fave places!
2. Veg Out Vegan Pizza at Blaze Fast Fire'd Pizza (Disney Springs)
This assembly line personalize-your-own-pizza joint is fabulous! Perfect for lunch or dinner, vegans and non-vegans can create the pizza of their choice. Vegan cheese is available for those who do not eat dairy and the assortment of toppings is extensive. The crusts are nice and thin and cooked in a wood fire oven.
My personal favorite is the "Veg-Out" with vegan mozzarella, seasonal veggies, which included Brussell sprouts during my last visit, black olives and green peppers. Guests can garnish their pies with a variety of glazes as well after they emerge piping hot from the oven.
3. Vegan Falafel Burger at Sci-Fi Drive in Theatre (Hollywood Studios)
This place is way cool! First of all, they have recreated an entire "outdoor" setting like the old drive-in theaters. Everything takes place in 1957 and the "tables" are all within the confines of old convertible cars.
What's more, the Sci-Fi Drive in Theatre has two entree choices that are completely vegan. These include Szechuan Lettuce Wraps with Crispy-fried Tofu, Lettuce Cups, Water Chestnuts, Shredded Carrots, Spicy Cucumber, Szechuan Sauce, and Soba Noodle Salad and a Vegetarian Falafel Burger comprised of a Crispy Chick Pea Falafel Patty on a Brioche Bun with Arugula, Gourmet Tomato, Tzatziki Sauce, and Red Pepper Aïoli.
Our vegan crowd opted for the Falafel Burger and boy was it dee-lish! We particularly liked the side of tomato jam and french fries
But the good vegan eats do not end there. For dessert, they offer a a vegan chocolate milkshake made with soy milk and tofutti!
4. Wok Fried Green Beans at Yak & Yeti (Animal Kingdom)
Yak & Yeti in Asia in Animal Kingdom has many vegan options from which to chose, making it one of our favorite dining destinations in this park. I can say with total certainty that our hands-down number one Disney eats vegan appetizers is the restaurant's Wok Fried Green Beans!!
Crispy on the outside, with piping hot green beans on the inside, these batter fried starters are addicting, especially when dipped in the accompanying sweet Thai chili dipping sauce.
5. Erin McKenna’s of NYC (Disney Springs)
Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC in Disney Springs has got to be the best darn place for vegan and gluten-free baked treats! Every single visit to Disney World includes at least one (but, usually two!) visits to this sweet delight shop.
Everything from cookies, cupcakes, doughnuts and more.
And there you have it folks - a few Vegan stops you should put on your list for your next trip to Walt Disney World!!
