Vegetarian Meals at Disney World - Quick Service Restaurants

Updated on August 18, 2014

What Can A Vegetarian Eat At Disney World?

Are you a vegetarian planning a vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort and Theme Parks in Orlando, Florida? We've put together a list of counter-service / quick service Disney restaurants that offer vegetarian options.

Disney restaurants tend to come in two categories:

1.) Table-service restaurants: these are regular full service restaurants; in most cases, you sit at a table and a server takes your order and delivers your food to you. There are some buffets but even then, a server brings your beverage and clears the table for you. Most vegetarians are very adept at finding something to eat in these restaurants.

2.) Quick Service (also called Counter Service) restaurants. These restaurants are more like fast food venues - you go to a counter to order, wait for your food, find your own table, and clear the table afterwards. These locations tend to be less expensive than table service restaurants but they also often have more limited menus and it can be a challenge for vegetarians to find something they can eat.

Please note that menus are subject to change and that the vegetarian options listed are not necessarily vegan. If you're unsure about an item, just ask for the list of ingredients that every restaurant keeps for every item they offer. The list below probably does not contain every vegetarian option available.

All of the restaurants listed accept the Disney Dining Plan.

TIP: You can get free Disney theme park maps in the lobby of each Disney hotel and at the entrance of each theme park. These maps will list the restaurants within the park and the locations that include vegetarian options will have an apple shaped symbol next to them.

There's a new double restaurant in the building that previously housed the McDonalds called Pollo Campero / Fresh A-Peel. It's not on the Disney Dining plan but it does offer some healthy quick-service options like a vegetable chopped salad, fruit smoothies, Probiotic vanilla frozen yogurt, black beans and rice, and a bakery counter that even has gluten free options. I'm so glad it participates in the Disney World Meal Plans.
