Counter Service Meals
in the Parks


Vegetarians and vegans may be concerned that won't be able to find quick, satisfying meals at Walt Disney World, but we think they'll be pleasantly surprised to find that there are, in fact, quite a few choices throughout the parks and resorts to meet the needs of many different diets. Below, you will find a chart showing many of the vegetarian options.

Vegan items, or items "veganizable" by omitting an ingredient or two, are noted in the comments section. Please use this only as a guideline -- things are always changing at Walt Disney World, and not everything here is verified. Please also note that refined sugar has not been taken into account when researching vegan items. If you have allergies or other concerns, ask a Cast Member for more information. Most counter service places also have an ingredients list available on request.

For some vegan snack ideas, soft pretzels are all vegan. We believe that all Disney French fries are vegan, but if the location sells other fried items (such as chicken nuggets), then the fries are most likely cooked in the same oil.  Some locations will "bake" you some fries, but be prepared for an additional wait. There are also fresh fruit carts in all the theme parks, with some surprisingly tasty choices. And the popcorn sold in all the parks is, despite its "buttery" appearance, is vegan.

Also, it's worth noting that while Disney generally frowns upon outside food being brought into the parks, this policy is waived for special dietary needs. (However, alcoholic beverages and hard-sided coolers are strictly prohibited.)

Magic Kingdom



Vegetarian choices


Main Street, USA


Fresh Fruits, Assorted Pastries and Cakes Some gluten-free pastries (but they contain eggs). Other pastries are probably not vegan - ask for ingredients list


Tortuga Tavern


*Vegetarian Burrito

*Kids' Quesadillas

The Vegetarian Burrito is vegan as served - just ask them to skip the sour cream they provide on the side.  (Rather plain on its own, but not bad when you add salsa from the toppings bar.)


Pecos Bill's

*Vegetable Burger

Vegetable Burger is most likely the current vegan "very veggie" Gardenburger (ask for ingredients list to confirm) but you will need to request a vegan bun.


Golden Oak Outpost

*(some possible snacks) At last check, there was nothing vegan available at this location.

Liberty Square

Columbia Harbour House

*Lighthouse Sandwich (with hummus and broccoli slaw)

*Garden Harvest Salad (ordered w/out chicken; includes garden veggies, cheese and sunflower seeds)

*Kids' macaroni & cheese

Lighthouse Sandwich may be vegan (ask for ingredients list -- broccoli slaw may have dairy). Salad should be vegan when ordered without chicken and cheese. (Please note that while I have always received good service here, others have reported receiving a salad with chicken after requesting the alteration.)


Pinocchio's Village Haus

* Cheese Individual Pizza (with or without salad)

*Mediterranean Salad (ordered without chicken) includes roasted red peppers, black olives, red onions and mozzarella cheese)

Mediterranean Salad should be vegan if ordered without meat and cheese.

(Note that the Caesar Salad with Chicken most likely is not vegetarian even without the chicken. Caesar dressing traditionally includes anchovies.)


Cosmic Ray's Starlight Café

*Vegetable Sandwich

*Vegetable Burger

*Kids' Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich
Not sure of ingredients in the Vegetable Sandwich. Vegetable burger is a vegan "very veggie" Gardenburger (and they have a great toppings bar here!), but you will need to ask for a vegan bun.



Epcot - Future World

The Land

Sunshine Seasons

*Asian - Vegetable Noodle Bowl
*Vegetarian Entrée (includes your choice of three:  Garlic Udon Noodles, vegetable stir-fried rice, white rice or tofu cubes)

*Soups & Salads - Kids' Macaroni & Cheese

*Sandwiches - Vegetable Flatbread Sandwich

*Grab 'n' Go - Kids' Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich

The Vegeta ble Noodle Bowl should be vegan as-is. The

Asian Vegetarian Entree is vegan if you avoid the stir-fried rice (includes eggs).

The Vegetable Flatbread Sandwich veganizable with modification - you would have to ask for ingredients list. There are also some decent vegan option in the packaged cold foods coolers.

They may have Divvies vegan treats.


Fountain View

Fresh Fruits, Assorted Pastries and Cakes Some gluten-free pastries (but they contain eggs). Other pastries are probably not vegan - ask for ingredients list



* Greek Salad - with Feta cheese, olives, red onions, tomato and cucumber

There is nothing easily veganizable available here.

Epcot - World Showcase

Vegetarian choices

United Kingdom

Yorkshire County
Fish Shop

*Nothing vegetarian Nothing vegetarian or vegan here.


Boulangerie Patisserie

* assorted pastries Pastries are most likely not vegan, but they should have an ingredients list on hand. The French Baguette is your most likely bet.


Tangierine Cafe

*Vegetable Platter (falafel, tangierine couscous salad, hummus, tabouleh, lentil salad and marinated olives)

*Various side dishes

The Vegetable Platter has changed since my last visit, so you may want to check on the ingredients. The couscous salad, hummus, tabouleh and olives should be vegan. The falafel is vegan, but the lentil salad is not.


Kabuki Cafe

* strawberry, honeydew,
tangerine & rainbow Kaki-Gori (like a snowcone, only better!)
The menu has changed - and expanded! - since my last visit.  The Kaki Goris should still be vegan (without the "sweet milk" special topping).  You'll need to verify the ingredients, but they now serve Edamame and Miso Soup - both of which could be vegan.

American Adventure

Liberty Inn

* Southwest Black Bean Burger  - with Monterey Jack, corn salsa, chipotle mayonnaise, lettuce & tomato

*Iceberg Wedge Salad

*Fruit Cup

*Kids' Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich

This menu has changed since my last visit.  I'm not sure of the ingredients in the Southwest Black Bean Burger, but at  best, it would need some modification.  I'm also not sure of the salad.  The waits at this place seem to be surprisingly bad, but if you can catch them when they're slow, it might be worth asking about ingredients and possible modifications.


Lotus Blossom Cafe

* Nothing *

I've been told that everything here is prepared with chicken stock, even if it says "vegetarian".


Kringla Bakeri og Kafe

Various pastries and other sweets
At one time, a vegan bear claw was offered here - if you see it, be sure to ask for ingredients list, to be sure.


La Cantina de San Angel

* Empanadas de Queso

* Guacamole con Totopos (guacamole & tortilla chips)

* churro
While not a full meal, the chips with guacamole are vegan - very tasty, and surprisingly substantial.

Disney's Hollywood Studios

Area Restaurant Vegetarian choices Comments

Sunset Blvd.

Starring Rolls

* Kids' Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich

* various pastries and sweets

There is a Sushi Vegetable Roll currently on the menu, though selections change daily, and I'm not sure of the ingredients.

Most of the pastries and sweets have dairy and/or eggs, but you may want to ask for an ingredients list.


Catalina Eddie's

* Nothing 


There is currently nothing vegetarian or vegan "as-is" on the menu, but the cheese pizza without the accompanying Ceasar salad is probably vegetarian.



Anaheim Produce

* soft pretzels

* assorted fresh fruit and veggies

The pretzels are vegan. Good selection of fruit. I often make a lunch from a soft pretzel and fresh fruit. Mmmmm.



Rosie's All-American Cafe

* Vegetarian Cheeseburger (with coleslaw or fries)

I believe that the cheeseburger is made with the vegan "very veggie" Gardenburger. If so, you should be able to order it without the cheese (but note that the coleslaw is probably not vegan, and the fries are probably cooked in the same oil with the chicken nuggets).

Echo Lake

Peevy's Polar Pipeline

* frozen Coca-cola and Minute Maid treats

* fresh fruit and pickles

Whole fruits and pickles are vegan. Carrots, celery and apples come with sauces that are not vegan. If you don't mind the sugar, the frozen drinks are vegan and nice on a hot day.

Min & Bill's
Dockside Diner

* Nothing Other than possibly chips, there is nothing vegetarian or vegan here.

Backlot Express

* Grilled Vegetable Sandwich (black olive ciabatta roll, mushrooms, red peppers, zucchini, tomato, watercress and cheese with sundried tomato pesto and black bean salad)

This sandwich is vegan, if ordered without the cheese. You may have to wait a bit longer for them to prepare it, but it's a very tasty and filling meal.

There is also a Southwest Salad with Chicken on the menu - it may be vegan without the chicken - ask for ingredients list (not sure about the tortilla or dressing).

* tossed salad

*Grilled Vegetable Sandwich

Other than the salad, nothing vegan.

Studio Catering Co.

Not sure of ingredients in Grilled Vegetable Sandwich, or the Greek salad.  They may be veganizable with modification - ask for ingredients list.

Writer's Stop

* assorted cookies and pastries

* assorted coffee drinks

Vegans should ask for ingredients list, though I'd guess that most of this is not vegan.

The Vegetable Subosaurus is vegan when ordered without the cheese - very filling and quite good.

While not much of a choice, this is a nice plate of fruit, and when ordered without the honey yogurt, it is vegan.


Yak & Yeti Counter Service

* NONE * You might ask for an ingredients list of the Mandarin Chicken Salad (minus the chicken). Otherwise, nothing on the menu appears vegetarian or vegan.
