Disney Cruise Vegan Survival Tips

Let's face it... the words Vegan and Vacation sometimes can be equal Challenges. That's because it can be difficult to find vegan friendly restaurants at most resorts, and let's not forget how tiring it can be to repeatedly explain and ask about vegan friendly options everywhere you go.

So while trying to plan a fun vacation I learned about the Disney Cruise Line. I learned that not only they offered vegan and vegetarian options but they will cater to any allergy restrictions, such as gluten free cooking for example. It sounded really good at first but it was hard to believe I confess. So after giving them a few calls and doing a bit more research I was confident and decided to give it a try. So Disney Cruise here I went...

 

And to my delight I had a wonderful experience! It was awesome. However, there are some important details you need to know which I will be sharing here. Additionally here is a sneak peek preview photo gallery of some of the wonderful vegan friendly dishes they offer.

Let's get started!

1. Breakfast is tricky. Therefore, pre-ordering breakfast might be necessary. They serve a buffet-style breakfast with very little vegan options, which may include fruits, oatmeal, some nuts and juices. Most breads are not vegan, in fact most of the buffet includes eggs, meats, butter, milk and not much more. So the nights before just let the Chef know what dishes you'd like to have for breakfast.

If not pre-ordering, simply let the Chef know what you'd like to eat. In this case, if they are having a busy morning, you might have to wait 10-15 minutes for your meal. So if dining with family and friends simply grab some oatmeal and fruit while waiting for your special ordered breakfast to arrive. Make sure to ask for a complete protein dish, such as a tofu scramble with veggies, for example, and grab some potatoes and fruit from the buffet. Here is a photo below.

Notes: They didn't have any other beans in the morning, so I went with soy and suggested the tofu scramble. I tried to explain to them it's like an egg scramble but using tofu instead and they did a great job. On a different morning I was able to have freshly made hummus instead.

 

2. Lunch will also need to be pre-ordered. On the Castaway Cay Disney Island, for example, they only serve BBQ and meats. Make sure to order the night before ahead of time. Let the Chef know what you'd like to eat and he will be happy to prepare it for you. I simply said some beans, veggies and fruit for example. Simple, but they were all delicious! Here are some photos below of lunch on the island.

Castaway Cay: Red Beans in Tomato Sauce, Veggies and Rice, Fresh Fruits and Gluten Free Cake.

 

3. Dinner is easy. Most restaurants offer vegetarian options, which is a great start. But here is the trick, or should I say here is the awesomeness: At Disney Cruise Line you will be assigned the same server every night. So he or she will know exactly what you like and don't like. I didn't have to worry at all about dinner as my server surprised me with exciting dishes every day.

Animator's Palate: Vegan Butternut Squash Soup (made vegan), Bean Cakes with Rice, Gluten Free Cake and Fresh Fruit.

 

Enchanted Garden: Cucumber Rolls, Lentils and Mushrooms and Vegan Ice Cream with Bananas for dessert.

 

Royal Palace: Avocado-Citrus Salad, Eggplant and Tofu, and Vegan Chocolate Cake plus gluten-free cookies. Yummmy...

 

I had a lot of fun at the Disney Cruise, the food and service were exceptional and I was very impressed. What a great vegan-friendly cruise experience! :)

Additional Tips: I also learned that at Disney Cruise Line it's ok the bring alcohol if you'd like — it won't be confiscated like in other cruises. Just make sure to bring new and well packed bottles. After boarding the ship you can store all drinks in your room's refrigerator.

If you have any additional tips or feedback please share below. Thanks everyone.
