In September 2019, Disney Parks had announced they would be expanding vegan, vegetarian, and plant-based food options all across the theme parks.
This started at the Walt Disney World Resort when Disney introduced hundreds of new vegan options and plant-based food to the theme parks. Disney also introduced a brand new vegan menu icon, a green leaf, in order to make it easier for Disney guests to find the vegan options best suited for them.
Ever since this announcement in September 2019, Disney has been slowly rolling out new items on menus across all of the theme parks, water parks, and Disney Springs. Disney guests on a special diet, or even those just looking to try new items and expand their taste palate, have been thrilled with the hundreds of both sweet and savory dishes and brand new plant-based meals.
Expansion On Impossible™ Products
And now, it looks as though Disney is teaming up with Impossible™ to bring even more plant-based meals to the menu. In fact, Impossible™ is now the “preferred” plant-based burger of Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort and Disney Cruise Line.
In case you have never heard of or tried Impossible™ meat before, this “meat” is designed to look, taste and cook like the real thing.
“There’s a level of trust associated with Disney,” Dennis Woodside, president of Impossible™ Foods, told CNN Business. “If Disney put us on the menu, then people are more likely to try it.”
Disneyland’s Head Chef John State also spoke with CNN Business on the Impossible™ products. “It certainly has all the components we’re looking for when it comes to flavor [and] texture,” he said. “It’s a big game changer.”
Where To Find Impossible™ Products
Currently, Impossible™ products are being offered across all of the Disney Parks, at both sit down restaurants and quick service restaurants.
