ANAHEIM, CA – JULY 17: In this handout photo provided by Disney parks, Mickey Mouse and his friends celebrate the 60th anniversary of Disneyland park during a ceremony at Sleeping Beauty Castle featuring Academy Award-winning composer, Richard Sherman and Broadway actress and singer Ashley Brown July 17, 2015 in Anaheim, California. Celebrating six decades of magic, the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration features three new nighttime spectaculars that immerse guests in the worlds of Disney stories like never before with “Paint the Night,” the first all-LED parade at the resort; “Disneyland Forever,” a reinvention of classic fireworks that adds projections to pyrotechnics to transform the park experience; and a moving new version of “World of Color” that celebrates Walt Disneys dream for Disneyland.

Disney is bringing 400 vegan options to its theme park restaurants, quick-service carts, and restaurants.

Coming to Disneyland in L.A. 2020 and Disney World this October, the meals and other menu items will wholly plant-based.

In the tradition of the parks, the food options will match the theme of the areas.

The Star Wars area of the Disney World will offer “Tatooine Two Suns Hummus.”

At the three Disneyland hotels, there will be”Carrot Gnocchi” at The Turf Club Bar, among other options.

Vegan options will be marked with a green leaf on the menu.

Disney is not doing away with the hot dogs and burgers that have become the standard theme park fare.

If you are the only one in your group who wants an old-fashioned “meat on a stick” option, Disney’s California Adventures offers what might be the best corn dog in the world.
