Thinking about visiting Disney, but worried about the snacks? Vegan or have Food Allergies? Read this…
Hey fans, as I sit here and book magical trips for my clients (aka you) I drool fondly over my favorite Disney snacks. Snacks I wish I could get at home and snacks I wish you all could send back home to me. Being Vegan with Food Allergies I am limited…but not as limited as you would think. My Favorite Disney World Vegan Snacks:
#1: Mickey Pretzel:
Ok – so my hands down favorite is the plain and simple pretzel. 100% vegan and dairy-free, just add mustard (or at least I do). The fact that its shaped like Mickey just makes it so much tastier. We love eating his ears, then his eyes, etc. Its like a game and treat all in one. I like mine lightly salted, so I might wipe off a few salt rocks…but this is a snack I won’t leave a park without. AND its rumored that the sugar ones are vegan too 🙂
Yep and I am talking about the buttered (non-dairy) popcorn that they sell all over the parks. The fresh, made daily as you are walking by, popcorn. Get it in a fancy cute character bucket or in a toss away cardboard cup…its yum!! It’s great to share or enjoy solo…either way, nothing beats this popular snack. Perfect for the whole family to enjoy. You can also find, pre-packaged, flavored popcorn as well – check the candy, snack stores.
#3: Dole Whip:
So this one isn’t usually a HUGE shock, but ALL fruit flavors are Dairy-Free. Avoid the Vanilla. You can get pineapple, lemon, lime, strawberry, mango, etc…so many flavors…it just depends on the location and what the popular treat is at the moment. Lately they have been making them character themed with decorations. If these decorations are Chocolate based, just pass on the decor and get the Frozen yumminess as is. I have been truly impressed by the lemon and the lime. And I LOVE the mix, when they mix 2 flavors – YUM!!
#4: Candied Almonds:
Sorry no-nut families, but I LOVE this snack. And they are vegan!! Always double check the ingredients…but I love these SO much I am known to get them every-time I see the stand, using several snack credits and keeping them in our bags. They usually last a few days, with us taking a few handfuls as desired. The nut carts aren’t everywhere, so you have to score when you can. We have seen Almonds, Cashews and Pecans…but the almonds have my heart.
#5: Erin McKenna Bakery:
So this place is located in Disney Springs and the ENTIRE place is Vegan and Gluten Free. Many of the items are to-die-for…but its the donuts that get me drooling. Another item I will purchase SEVERAL of and enjoy for several days during our vacation. I will even place an order for delivery. But the HUGE perk of this place is getting to pick your own cupcake or cookie, from the case. No waiting for a special one from the back, you can order just like everyone else – and thats the TRUE treat.
Just adding this as a side note – obviously these items are vegan, but noting as you can find fruit cups and veggie sticks in the parks. Toss the Ranch and you are good to go! Sometimes you can spot hummus or Sabra Pretzels/Hummus snack packs.
I would love to hear your list. I know there are other Vegan treats in the parks, but my faves are the ones I can get almost anywhere. Mahalo for READING and FOLLOWING along – Nina
