Disney is known for it’s vast array of snack and meal options– drawing attention from around the globe.
Well now, they’re branching even further out to give more choices to those with dietary restrictions.
Several restaurants at Walt Disney World and Disneyland are rolling out new plant-based options. These new menu selections are made without animal meat, dairy, eggs or honey.
With this new initiative comes new branding too. Disney will be adding a new leaf emblem to special menu items in order to let guests know which options fit with their diets:
On October 1 at quick service locations and October 3 at table service locations, Walt Disney World Resort will launch the plant-based menu icon and introduce roughly 400 plant-based dishes.
