13 - Plant-Based Burger from Everything POP Food Court (Pop Century)
This plant-based burger features a beyond burger with avocado, vegan cheese, lettuce, and tomato on a brioche bun and it comes with a side of fries. We weren't expecting much since it was from the Pop Century food court but we really enjoyed this burger!
We asked them to cook it a little bit longer so the burger got some color on the outside, the first time we got it it wasn't very hot and it was still a little pink on the outside. The fries were fresh and hot and delicious!
You can also get a Plant-Based burger at the Landscape of Flavors food court at Art of Animation, the Riverside Mill food court at Port Orleans, Gasparilla Island Grill, at the Grand Floridian Resort and a few other places. However, I have to tell you that we haven't had good luck with the burgers at Liberty Inn, they're always cold and undercooked.
12 - Vegan Tomato Basil Pizza from Gasparilla Island Grill (Grand Floridian Resort)
The Gasparilla Island Grill at the Grand Floridian actually has an entirely vegan menu for you to choose from! We really enjoyed the vegan chicken sandwich and this vegan tomato basil pizza. The basil pesto sauce is a little oily for my taste, so if I got it again I would order the basil pesto on the side.
If you'd like a cup of coffee with your meal, they have almond milk that they will put in a small cup for you if you ask.
11 - Seitan Breakfast Scramble from Landscape of Flavors Food Court (Art of Animation)
This vegan breakfast scramble is surprisingly delicious and filling! It features sauteed edamame, tofu, chipotle-seasoned seitan, arugula, peppers, and onions. The tofu is a little bland but the seitan is very flavorful so it makes up for the tofu's lack of seasoning.
10 - Vegetable Sushi from Katsura Grill (Japan Pavillion - Epcot)
The pre-made package of vegetable sushi at Katsura Grill is tasty! We really enjoyed the fresh crisp carrots, avocado, and cucumber in the sushi roll and we liked that it came with fresh ginger. It's more of a snack than a meal for us but it's consistently delicious.
9 - Plant-Based Loaded Slaw Dog from Casey's Corner (Magic Kingdom)
The loaded slaw dog features pickled slaw, BBQ vegan aïoli, and roasted corn relish and it's served with a side of fries or apple slices. If you don't want all of the toppings, you can save $2 and just get some mustard and sauerkraut from the toppings bar. Grab a table that overlooks Cinderella castle for a tasty lunch with a great view!
8 - Vegan Bounty Platter from The Mara (Animal Kingdom Lodge)
The Mara doesn't have a vegan option on the menu but if you ask to speak to an allergy coordinator they can make you a veganized version of the Bounty Platter from the breakfast menu.
The tofu scramble is just as good as the one that they make for vegans at the Boma breakfast buffet and the Mickey waffles were hot and crispy. I highly recommend this vegan option for a delicious breakfast!
7 - Plant-Based Southwest Cheese Burger from Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Cafe (Magic Kingdom)
This is our favorite vegan quick service burger! We love that it comes with vegan jalapeno jack cheese, avocado aioli (ask for extra!), and it's served on a toasted bun. It's served with a side of chips and you can help yourself to salsa, lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles from the toppings bar.
6 - Seven Layer Rice Bowl from Fairfax Fare (Hollywood Studios)
To be honest, when I first ordered this 7-layer rice bowl from Fairfax Fare, I really wasn't expecting much but I was happily surprised! It's a huge portion and it was hot, fresh, and very flavorful.
To order a veganized 7-layer rice bowl, ask for it to be made without cheese and sour cream, and to substitute vegan chili for the meat. You can also add guacamole for $1 extra if you'd like.
5 - Plant-Based Breakfast Bowl from Centertown Market (Caribbean Beach Resort)
I love this plant-based breakfast bowl from Centertown Market. It features a very flavorful Just Egg or tofu scramble, potato hash, pico de gallo, and hot and crispy vegan sausage. This breakfast is very filling and I loved every bite. You could also order avocado toast if you're still hungry!
4 - Chili-Spiced Crispy Fried Tofu Bowl from Satu'li Canteen (Animal Kingdom)
This crispy tofu bowl is one of my top favorite vegan quick service options because of how consistently delicious it always is! I love the combination of crispy tofu, sweet potato hash, crunchy slaw, and the flavorful charred onion chimichurri sauce!
Make sure to always ask if the boba balls are vegan or not because for some reason they switch suppliers so the ingredients tend to change.
3 - Vegan Korma from Sunshine Seasons (Epcot)
The vegan korma at Sunshine Seasons is inexpensive and absolutely delicious! It's loaded with cauliflower, vegan Gardein chicken, cashews, green peas, carrots, onions, and a very flavorful sauce.
The korma is served with a hearty side of rice and it's very filling. Try to visit Sunshine Seasons at an off time otherwise, the food court is packed and it can be difficult to find a seat on a busy day!
2 - Vegetable Platter from Tangerine Cafe (Epcot)
I love love love the vegetable platter at Epcot, it's huge and delicious! The platter features cold lentil salad, tabouleh, couscous salad, a scoop of hummus, three falafel, lettuce, and a pita wrap.
The falafel is fried in a shared fryer so if that is an issue for you then you should avoid this meal. Also, ask to speak with an allergy coordinator and ask if the pita is vegan. They often change their supplier and the pita ingredients sometimes contain dairy. I haven't run into this issue but I've heard of others experiencing it.
1 - Vegan Pizza from Blaze Pizza (Disney Springs)
The pizza at Blaze is AWESOME and it's by far the best quick service Disney Springs option. For under $10 you can get a pizza with vegan cheese, unlimited veggies, and they even have vegan chorizo now! It's such a great deal, you even get a discount if you're an annual passholder. They also have a loyalty app that you can download to your phone to help you get even more discounts!
The thin, high-rise (my favorite!), and gluten-free crusts are all vegan as is and so is the classic and spicy red sauce. They will also ask you if you'd like a glove change before they make your pizza which I always take them up on and recommend that you do the same. I also love that they have something for everyone, no matter what your dietary preference is.
Quick Service Disney World Vegan Desserts
After you eat a delicious vegan meal at your favorite quick service, you gotta get dessert too! You are on vacation after all, am I right? The following desserts (from top left to right) are our favorite vegan desserts that you can find at quick service restaurants in Walt Disney World.
- Coconut Pineapple Cupcake (Sunshine Seasons)
- Raspberry Sorbet (Ghiradelli)
- Mini Cupcakes (The Mara Grab & Go)
- Beignets (Port Orleans Food Court)
- Erin McKenna's Bakery has so many yummy options, we especially love the mint chocolate cookie, coffee mocha cupcake, mint chocolate cupcake, eclairs, and the chocolate soft serve.
- Pineapple Dole Whip (Aloha Isle or Pineapple Lanai)
- Assorted Dole Whips (Magic Kingdom)
I also love to grab a hot or iced almond milk latte from Joffrey's to go with my dessert. If you get a hot latte from the Joffrey's store in Disney Springs you can get a design on top of your coffee for an additional $.50.
Recently, the Magic Kingdom came out with four new vegan dole whip cones: Adventure is Out There (mango), Heart of Te Fiti (lime), Lost Princess (lemon), and Hei Hei (raspberry + pineapple).
We did a dole whip crawl so we could try all of the new dole whip flavors. Watch this video, to see which vegan dole whip is our favorite and which cone we wouldn't buy again.
