veg ‘n’ out: magic kingdom

Magic Kingdom Disney World vegetarian

Veg­e­tar­ian options through­out Dis­ney World’s Magic Kingdom


Magic Kingdom Tortuga vegetarian

Dis­ney World’s theme parks are filled with fun, excitement and mag­i­cal expe­ri­ences for every­one to enjoy. My favorite rides in the Magic King­dom included the speed and thrills of Space Moun­tain or get­ting soaked on Splash Moun­tain. For a lit­tle more relax­ing expe­ri­ence, I really enjoyed Mickey’s Phil­har­Magic 3D movie and the audi­ence inter­ac­tive Mon­sters, Inc. Laugh Floor. All the fun and laugh­ter really works up an appetite!

Prob­a­bly like most veg­e­tar­i­ans vis­it­ing a theme park, there is always a con­cern about find­ing a healthy, bal­anced veg­e­tar­ian din­ing options. I have found that Dis­ney World has pro­vided that option more so than other Orlando area theme parks. I would rec­om­mend eat­ing a large, healthy break­fast before a long day at Dis­ney. Although, there were a vari­ety of veg­e­tar­ian options through­out the park, the prices are high in com­par­i­son to the taste and qual­ity of the food.

Magic Kingdom Tortuga vegetarian

Tor­tuga Tavern’s veg­e­tar­ian bur­rito with all the fixings.

The Tor­tuga Tav­ern within Adven­ture­land offers a veg­e­tar­ian bur­rito ($7.09) filled with cilantro rice and black beans. After pick­ing up your bur­rito, ven­ture over to the top­pings bar to add your choice  toma­toes, cheese, let­tuce and salsa. All ingre­di­ents of the veg­e­tar­ian bur­rito are vegan, as long as cheese and sour cream are omitted.

Also within Adven­ture­land, they have snack options such as a fresh cut pineap­ple spear at Aloha Isle & ice cream, slushes, cof­fees and soy milk avail­able at the Sun­shine Tree Ter­race. ($3–4)

Head over to Lib­erty Square for more fresh and healthy snack options. At the Dia­mond Horse­shoe, they offer a Por­to­bello Sand­wich served with a choice of apple slices or potato chips. ($8.29) In the Lib­erty Square Mar­ket, there are an array of fresh vegan snacks, such as: pickles, apple slices, oranges, green apples, bananas, grapes, mixed fruit, water­melon, pineap­ple, carrot/celery sticks, baked potato, Ocean Spray Craisins and Ocean Spray Craisins Fruit and Nut Trail Mix. ($1.29–3.69) Other great vegan snacks through­out the park include plain soft pret­zels and fresh popped popcorn.

Magic Kingdom Starlight vegetarianFor heartier, Amer­i­can type food, try Cos­mic Ray’s Starlight Cafe in Tomor­row­land. This cafe offers three dif­fer­ent ‘bay’ areas to order and pick up dif­fer­ent menu items. ‘Bays’ 2 and 3 offer the most veg­e­tar­ian options. I chose the veg­etable burger ($7.59)  from ‘bay 2′ with the choice of apples or fries. After I picked up my food, I headed over to the top­ping bar to dress my burger. The top­ping options included let­tuce, toma­toes, pick­les, onions, rel­ish, green pep­pers, mush­rooms, grilled onions, BBQ sauce, may­on­naise, mus­tard, ketchup, and cheese sauce. The veg­etable burger patty is vegan, but a vegan bun would need to be requested.

My sis­ter had cho­sen the veg­etable sand­wich ($9.39)  from ‘bay 3′ with the choice of apples, cucum­ber salad or fries. It was loaded with grilled veg­eta­bles of squash, zucchini, red onion, let­tuce, tomato and served on a hearty, whole grain roll. ‘Bay 3′ also offers a greek salad ($7.29), straw­berry yogurt ($1.99) and a cucum­ber salad ($2.99).

For the ulti­mate in Dis­ney din­ing, try Cinderella’s Royal Table in Fan­ta­sy­land. Serv­ing break­fast, lunch and din­ner, this fairy tale din­ing expe­ri­ence includes a prix fixe menu, photo with char­ac­ters and a chance to dine in Cinderella’s cas­tle. Break­fast is an all-you-care to eat Amer­i­can fare din­ing. Lunch and din­ner offers an entree of veg­e­tar­ian “Cas­soulet”, a baked French-style casse­role of Can­nellini and Gar­banzo beans topped with wild mushrooms, zucchini, shal­lots, toma­toes, and herbs. ($36 to $59.99)

There are many more din­ing options through­out the park. I’ve just touched on a few I ate at dur­ing my recent visit to the Magic King­dom. If you are vegan or have any other spe­cial dietary needs, I would rec­om­mend bring­ing in your own snacks or food. Also, If you plan ahead and call Dis­ney for a din­ing reser­va­tion, most restau­rant can be very accom­mo­dat­ing to par­tic­u­lar dietary needs at the full-service din­ing restaurants.
