There are of course many other obvious vegan options all throughout Walt Disney World Parks. From popular snacks like popcorn and pretzels to fresh fruit and veggie cups, we tried to refrain from listing all the more redundant picks. But do take note that many in-Park kiosks offer much in the way of such snacks along with numerous other novelty features in addition.

It’s also important to mention that in most cases, the culinary masterminds at work within Disney World excel at customizing specific meals for Guests when they are so able to do so. Nevertheless, it’s always a good idea to give advance notice at any dining designation you already know that you will be attending beforehand. Reservations are highly encouraged in most cases, as is contacting the awesome folks at Disney’s Special Dietary Requests. Click here to learn more or to contact them directly.
