If you are a vegetarian planning your next Disney World trip. I have some excellent suggestions. I've looked everywhere in Disney World and found five of the best vegetarian meals Disney World has to offer. These 5 vegetarian Disney World meals are all entrees at table service restaurants. I handpicked my favorites from each park/resort area and Disney Springs.
There are a lot of hotels that don't get a mention and some great alternatives in the parks as well. Let me know what other vegetarian dishes you would like to see next. This list covers the breadth of the entire property so you can access a great vegetarian Disney World meal wherever you are.
Curried Vegetable Crew Stew
Starting with the first and foremost Disney World theme park, this yummy vegetarian Disney World meal is one of the entrees at Jungle Navigation Co Ltd. Skipper Canteen at Magic Kingdom. This Adventureland restaurant is a wonderful way to enhance your experience in that part of the park with a great tasting meal. The Curried Vegetable Crew Stew features seasonal vegetables and pineapple tofu. It comes in a house made curry sauce and is served with rice.
Mediterranean Vegetable Platter
Next up is the second park to open in Disney World as well as the second largest. You will have no trouble finding great vegetarian food in Epcot. My favorite vegetarian Disney World dish in Epcot is the Mediterranean Vegetable Platter from Spice Road Table. It comes with hummus fries, rice-stuffed grape leaves couscous salad, baba ganoush, and pita bread.
Vegan Tofu Lettuce Wraps
This one surprised me. It's not uncommon for any restaurant, especially a Disney restaurant, to have a vegetarian option. You can pretty much eat anywhere, it just won't necessarily be great. I thought Animal Kingdom would be the best place to go because it just seems weird that we would be eating the animals and also watching them/protecting them through conservation efforts. Actually, Hollywood Studios had the most satisfactory vegetarian options. The lettuce wraps are vegan. You can get them at the Sci-fi Dine-in Theater, which was totally unexpected. It comes with fried tofu, lettuce cups, water chestnuts, shredded carrots, and spicy cucumber. It's finished off with a spicy Szechuan sauce, and a soba noodle salad.
Quinoa Vegetable Tabbouleh Salad
You can get fine vegetarian food around Animal Kingdom, but the best vegetarian dish is at Animal Kingdom Lodge in Sanaa. Don't load up on the awesome bread service and accompaniments. I mean to do, but the entree here that you want to look for is the Quinoa Vegetable Tabbouleh Salad. It comes with black rice, vegetables, undisclosed herbs, paneer, and an incredible citrus dressing, with papadum, a thin crisp disc like bread.
Grilled Vegetable Sandwich
Sounds boring, but this Terralina vegetable sandwich is thick, juicy and hearty. The zucchini and portobello mushroom is so tasty and the added elements of roasted red pepper, fresh mozzarella, basil, and balsamic make it one of my favorite things at Disney Springs. The sandwich comes on a toasted ciabatta bun with house-made pecorino-truffle potato chips and garlic pickles
