Disneyland Resort Festival of Holidays 2018 Vegan, Vegetarian, and Gluten-Free
It’s that time of year again! Time for my round-up of the vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options at the Disneyland Resort. In previous years, finding these options have been a little more difficult, and am used to going around from booth to booth to ask questions about where to find these items (particularly vegan items). Well Disneyland Resort Festival of Holidays 2018 has knocked it out of the park this year, by having an incredibles amount of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free items, as well as easily listing them all in the Tasting Passport.
On my recent trip to the Holidays at Disneyland media event, I was able to get the full scoop on the range of these offerings they have this year. So check them out, get ready to snack, and before you start be sure to grab a Sip n Savor pass, since this year it’s for BOTH Annual Passholders and guests! ($49 for APs, $54 for non-APs)
The Holiday Duets booth is past Carthay Circle, and right before you approach Cars Land. Here you can find:
- Shrimp and Grits (Gluten-Free)
- Curry Cauliflower Soup (Gluten-Free)
- Holiday Mickey and Minnie Cookies (Vegetarian)
The Winter Wonders booth (right in front of Pacific Wharf) has been the talk of the town in the vegan Disney community, since it is the first ever Festival of Holidays all vegan booth! Here you can find:
- Pumpkin Soup (Vegan, Gluten-Free)
- Chana Masala (Vegan) (Gluten-Free without the naan)
- Vanilla & Cranberry Trifle (Vegan)
The Merry Mashups booth is also near Pacific Wharf, and has what I’ve heard is this seasons best selling item:
- Hot Cocoa Marshmallow Macaron (Gluten-Free, Vegetarian)
I tasted this for myself, and this macaron is absolute perfection. The cookie is so soft and moist, with a very generous amount of filling. In the middle, is a solid piece of chocolate. Yum!
This booth is across from The Little Mermaid ride. If you have a sweet tooth and an affinity for Thanksgiving foods, then you should stop by here!
- Candied Yams (Gluten-free, Vegetarian)
Spicy Celebrations is near the Silly Symphony Swings, and this year has one of my absolute favorite items, latkes!
- Jalapeno Latkes (Vegetarian)
- Chocolate Chipotle Pot de Creme (Gluten-Free)
A Twist on Tradition
This booth is also near Silly Symphony Swings next to Spicy Celebrations and has a dish that has Oumph! as a chicken substitute. I have absolutely been loving the Oumph! dishes Disneyland has served, they last had a dish at Food & Wine Festival 2018:
- “Chicken-Less” Mole (Vegetarian, Gluten-Free)
- Pozole Rojo Beef (Gluten-Free)
This booth is in between Little Mermaid and Redwood Creek Challenge Trail, and has another favorite:
- Holiday Stuffing Mac & Cheese (Vegetarian)
- Milk Chocolate Candy Cane Pot de Creme (Vegetarian, Gluten-Free)
