Now, for another addition to the 1-day vegan eating itinerary in the WDW parks! This time I will be featuring some choice vegan options in EPCOT!
(Each restaurant will be labeled CS (counter service) or TS (table service) appropriately. At counter service locations, the ordering process involves waiting in line at a podium, ordering your food with a cast member, waiting for your order at a counter, and bringing the meal to an available table to sit down to eat. A table service location is more similar to a restaurant and involves being seated, and served at your table. You may need to make an advance dining reservation to dine at TS locations and tip your server’s!)
- Your best bet here is to eat at your resort the morning of your Epcot day(s), but there is a Princess Storybook Breakfast buffet in Norway at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall which, besides fruit, MIGHT make you some special vegan Mickey Waffles if you call ahead! Chefs are very accommodating and will find something that you can eat!
- Sunshine Seasons – Future World – CS – Orange Sesame Glazed Vegan Chick’n Chunks with Stir Fry Noodles (this is alsooffered during dinner). They also have salads!
- Via Napoli – World Showcase/Italy – TS – Get a pizza minus the cheese and add all the veggie toppings you can!
- Tangierine Cafe – World Showcase/Morocco – QS – Vegetarian Platter with couscous, hummus, and tabouleh
- Fountainview Ice Cream – Future World – Right near Fountain of Nations, head over to this hand-scooped ice cream place and grab a scoop (or 2) or a float!
- Nut Cart – Last time I was there, I checked the ingredients they used on the glaze and they were veg-approved!
- Yorkshire County Fish Shop – get some “chips” (French Fries), they’re sooooo good here!
- Rose and Crown – World Showcase/England – TS – Order the Slow-Cooked Chicken Curry without chicken (and asked that the rice not be cooked in chicken broth!)
- La Hacienda de San Angel – Mexico/World Showcase – TS – There are a few options here: Ensalada de la Hacienda with spinach salad with queso fresco, tomatoes, pomegranate, pine nuts and avocado, with mustard vinaigrette dressing (check to see if the dressing is okay and get oil and vinegar if it isn’t!). You can also ask for tacos or nachos here with beans, rice, lettuce, guacamole, onions, etc. just no cheese, sour cream, or meat!
Angie has been a WDW addict since her first visit at age 8, and since then her life has never been the same! She lives in southeastern MA with her boyfriend, Kevin (fellow Disney lover), and their 3 dogs, Flip, Josie, and Hildy, where she is currently training to become a professional dog trainer. Please join Angie every week in “Fish Are Friends, Not Food: Eating Vegan in WDW!” Angie believes that WDW is the most magical place for people with special diets, so, should you have any special diet questions (especially about vegan and gluten-free dining) she’d be happy to help! Angie is also an artist, and you can see her work at www.angiecarreiro.com!

Please note that things are constantly changing, so this information might not always be up to date.
