Disclaimer: This blog post, and all past and future Fish Are Friends, Not Food blog posts, are written with my most recent knowledge of the food in WDW parks. Please note that things are constantly changing, so this information might not always be up to date. Also note that I do not take into consideration refined sugar, cross contamination, or impure food items. With that said, always ask a chef before ordering if you are unsure about something, because the recipe may have changed or you may have a different way of defining your vegan lifestyle.
Jiko the Cooking Place at Animal Kingdom Lodge has it’s own special vegan menu! I’ve been meaning to do a restaurant review on Jiko, but I will save that for another post and instead focus on the most up-to-date vegan menu items that Disney Dining shares on their website (the menu changes sometimes, for example, it was COMPLETELY different from this when we went in 2011, but it’s always vegan):
Our Jiko Menu
Created Especially for You Our Vegan Guests
Roasted Kuri Squash and Kalamata Olive Flatbread Cipollini Onions and Pumpkin Seed Duqqa 9.00
Taste of Africa African-inspired Dips with Lentil Pappadam 9.00
Jiko Salad Bibb Lettuce, Blueberries, Grapes, Celery, Pine Nut Brittle, and Blueberry Vinaigrette 13.00
