We’re in the thick of summer and that means family vacations and theme parks!

If you’re setting out on a summer tour of Florida and thinking about some of the Orlando theme parks, Walt Disney World Resort has got you covered if you or anyone in your vacationing group follows a special diet. One of the best parks to visit is Disney’s Epcot and their world showcase, where you’ll find a variety of international places to dine.

Future World

  • The Garden Grill located in The Land Pavilion – The Garden Grill uses locally sourced produce from their own green house that you can overlook from the restaurant and take a ride through before or after your meal! Choose the farmer’s salad, garden veggies and rice pilaf.
  • Sunshine Season Food Fair in The Land Pavilion – Lots of custom made sandwiches and salads.
  • Electric Umbrella – Nice selection of wraps and salads that are easily veganized.

World Showcase

The World Showcase has the most vegan options in Epcot by far, and many of the “countries” offer both sit down options and quickie meals that you can grab on the way to your next ride.

Mexico

Sit down: San Angel Inn – Mexican cuisine is super simple to vegify by dropping the meat and cheese and adding in more beans,veggies, guacamole and salsa! For gluten free folks, opt for corn tortillas. I like the Ensalada Mexicana without the cheese!
Quickie: La Cantina de San Angel – Order the chips and guacamole and salsa with a side of black beans and make your own veg-friendly tacos!

Italy

Sit down: Via Napoli and Tutto Italia – North have a wide variety of dishes that can be easily made to suit your special diet. Pizzas are easily veganizable as are salads and pastas.

Morocco

Sit down: Restaurant Marrakesh – North African dishes that are more then suitable for a variety of special diets. The Jasmina Salad and Cous Cous with Vegetables are great delish!
Quickie: Tangieriene Cafe – Decent selection of salads, cous cous and other north African dishes.

China

Sit down: Nine Dragons – Choose vegetable dishes and nix any meat. Opt for steamed veggie dishes sans noodles for gluten free diners. The cucumber salad and Vegetable Tofu Stir Fry are Healthy Voyager faves!

Japan

Sit down: Teppan Edo or Tokyo Dining – Both have a wide variety of dishes that can be easily made to suit your special diet
Quickie: Yakitori House – Check out veggie sushi rolls and veggie noodle bowls

Norway

Sit down: Akershush Banquet Hall – Provides a Disney Princess Storybook Dining experience in a medieval castle-themed restaurant. Go for the vegetable risotto!

So bring your walkin’ shoes, your wonderment and most of all, your appetite because Epcot is a great theme park full of neat and inventive attractions that you won’t find anywhere else and vegan food to boot!

Additionally, if you really want to plan your worry-free day at Epcot, make your dining reservations ahead of time and let guest services know of any special diet requests so they can accommodate you accordingly. Contact Disney’s Dining Reservation Center at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 to speak with a Cast Member to make your special requests and reservations.

    This is very helpful! I went there a few years ago and was stunned at how vegan-unfriendly orlando was! Most restaurants seemed unfamiliar with vegan eating. Disney was a little easier, but still shocking since people from all walks of life visit. We ate at a Japanese steak house that was very helpful, they made me veg, tofu, rice and actually brought the binder with all of the ingredients out to me to make sure the recipes didn’t contain any nonvegan items. Very helpful, but I definitely felt like they don’t see a lot of us there!
