Who doesn’t love visitng the happiest place on earth?

Well, I would imagine folks on special diets have some trouble at theme parks—however, I’ve scoured both Disneyland and California Adventure, and found some pretty fabulous options for vegans, gluten free diners and even health counscious park goers.

Be you a kid or an adult, you can have the full magical experience with none of the food worries!

Here is what I found on my last visit to the Anaheim parks:

California Adventure

1. Cars Land/Flo’s V8 Diner: Veggie tater bake made with soy crumbles (vegans, order it sans cheese)
2. Starbuck’s: Soy milk beverages
3. Carthay Circle: Veggie risotto
4. Cocina Cucamonga: Veggie burritos and salads
5. Fairfax Market: fresh juices and healthy snacks like hummus and raw veggies
6. Lucky Fortune Cookery: Veggie rice bowls
7. Paradise Garden Grill: Tofu skewars, Mediterranean plates and salads

1. Blue Bayou: Portobello Risotto
2. Near Pirate’s of the Caribbean: Veggie Gumbo
3. Across from the Hanuted Mansion: Veggie Chili
4. Bengal BBQ: Veggie skewers
5. Jolly Holiday Cafe: Grilled veggie and mushroom salad with whole grains and soy milk for coffee
6. Tropical Import: fresh juices and healthy snacks like hummus and raw veggies
7. Rancho del Zocalo: Veggie burritos and salads

You can also check out options at the Orlando area parks here:

Animal Kingdom

Additionally, if you really want to plan your worry-free day at Epcot, make your dining reservations ahead of time and let guest services know of any special diet requests so they can accommodate you accordingly. Contact Disney’s Dining Reservation Center at (714) 781-DINE (3463) to speak with a Cast Member to make your special requests and reservations.

    VEGANS BEWARE: the tater bake at Flo's is NOT VEGAN, even if you modify it to exclude the cheddar. The chef at Flo's informed us that they marinate the soy crumbles in milk and dairy products. It is not vegan and can not be made vegan!

    This was very helpful for us! Thank you! One other discovery was a Garden Burger at Condor Flats. I'm not a big fan of all things "Garden", but when you're starving, it's nice to have something to eat. : )

    At the Grizzly Cafe in Disneyland, they have a fried green tomato sandwich.
