Visiting Epcot’s International Festival of the Arts as a Vegetarian

At the start out of 2022, I eventually determined to become a vegetarian. Just after all, I have been 95% vegetarian for the past couple years mainly because I barely ate meat. My major stress when ultimately getting to be fully vegetarian was what I’d be ready to eat at the parks simply because that was the only position I’d try to eat meat. I appreciate pageant food stuff, so 1 of my main considerations when producing this change was how several foods solutions I’d have at the festivals. Luckily, Disney has develop into vegetarian-helpful and additional allergy-welcoming in the earlier handful of several years. 

Vegetarian-friendly possibilities at the Epcot Global Festival of the Arts 

  • Blood Orange-braised Beet Carpaccio – Connoisseur Landscapes (Vegan) 
  • Carrots Three Strategies – Tangierine Cafe (Vegan)
  • Plant-based Bratwurst – Refreshment Outpost (Vegan)
  • Wild Mushroom Risotto – Gourmet Landscapes 
  • Brie Bread Bowl – L’art de la Cuisine 
  • Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese – Pop Eats 

Some of the food items I mentioned is vegan helpful as effectively. The sweet treats provided at the competition are vegetarian, but they are not vegan because many use milk, butter, and eggs. I want they had far more plant-primarily based desserts for our vegan buddies. I also would like just about every booth had a person vegetarian product so that there was extra assortment. 

Plant-dependent Bratwurst

I have experimented with the Plant-based Bratwurst this calendar year, and the Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese and Brie Bread Bowl in a long time past, and hugely suggest trying them. I have a target to test all the vegetarian alternatives by the end of the competition, but I have operate into a slight concern. Every single time I have absent, the lines have been crazy. Each booth has a line that is about 15 to 30 minutes prolonged. I really do not consider any food is value a 30-moment wait around, primarily when there are other food alternatives throughout Epcot and the surrounding resorts. I guess what I require to do is hop about just after perform a person working day on a weekday. Possibly it will be much less chaotic on a Tuesday evening as opposed to a Saturday afternoon.

Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese

I wish there were far more vegan selections. I have noticed people today on social media make other dishes vegan by building modifications. In my opinion, it just feels unhappy that there are only 3 vegan options. They should have at least five vegan choices through the competition because veganism has grow to be extra popular. I also really feel the exact same way about the vegetarian selections. 6 vegetarian-pleasant dishes is not more than enough I believe there should be two or three far more alternatives additional to the vegetarian checklist. Getting vegetarian has also turn out to be far more prevalent. I have to say that the vegetarian alternatives that I have tried are quite yummy. I have right until February 21st to check out the rest of the choices. I am intrigued to consider the Carrots 3 Strategies and the Beet Carpaccio.

Heading to Disney as a vegetarian is reasonably straightforward, but this competition at Epcot has much less of a range for vegetarians and vegans. I love that Disney has extra much more allergy-welcoming things all through the festivals and parks. I really don’t know about you, but I go to Disney to take in, so it would be nice to have extra pageant possibilities to love and pick from. I simply cannot verify, but I feel Flower and Backyard has extra vegetarian possibilities than Pageant of the Arts. I will have to investigate a minimal far more on that and look at out all the booths when that pageant rolls all around in March they have a booth sponsored by Impossible that has all plant-primarily based dishes. Which is a stage in the suitable path.
