The 5th annual EPCOT International Festival of the Arts is back with some wonderful vegan options. This year, we have quite a few vegan snacks and desserts at EPCOT to choose from, so we thought we’d list them all here for you to try and choose your favorites. If you’re looking for the complete vegan guide to the 2021 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts, head to our 2021 vegan guide. For now, let’s get to the snacks!
The 2021 Festival of the Arts brings us a handful of vegan food items, but also the same amount of drinks and desserts, which hopefully is a continuing trend! Let’s see what vegan snacks and desserts at EPCOT to order:
EPCOT Vegan Drinks
First up, at Deconstructed Dish is the Rainboba drink ($8), which comes in a souvenir Figment plastic cup. It’s non-alcoholic, sparkling water with the fruit-flavored boba balls added. Last year, the boba were not vegan. This year, we asked, two chefs were called, and we were told that the boba had no gelatin and were vegan. We encourage you to proceed with caution and triple check before ordering as is. The sparkling water that they are using is Dasani Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade and the boba balls are various fruit flavors.
Next up is a specialty coffee drink from Joffrey’s Coffee stand at the Showplace Plaza location. The Caramel Canvas Latte. This special normally comes with a donut for $9.99 but since the donut is not vegan, you can get the coffee by itself for $5.99. Here’s how to order:
Normally the Caramel Canvas Latte (hot or iced) comes with Peanut Butter Syrup (vegan), Caramel sauce (not vegan – switch for Caramel syrup which is), and Dark Chocolate Sauce (vegan). The coffee then comes with whipped cream and sprinkled Snickers pieces, both of which you will omit. Make sure you request the plant-based milk of your choice. We had oat milk with the coffee above, and it was delicious.
Now we have an option that could be a drink or a dessert! The Coconut and Passionfruit Smoothie ($5) is available at the all-new Vibrante and Vivande Food Studio between Morocco and France. This smoothie comes in a souvenir plastic cup with “EPCOT International Festival of the Arts” printed on one side, and some Mary Blair-inspired graphics on the back.
We thought the Coconut Passionfruit Smoothie was like drinking a thicker, creamier version of POG. The Passion, Orange, and Guava juice that we’ve all come to know and love at the Disney character breakfast locations. This item is a great addition and is a refreshing way to add to your Festival of the Arts day.
EPCOT Vegan Desserts
Lastly, a true dessert item, the Lemon Soft Serve ($5.25), available at Decadent Delights. Located right around the corner from Deconstructed Dish, along the World Showcase promenade. Here you can order the Lemon Soft Serve without the waffle cone and the ice cream itself will be vegan.
The lemon soft serve was very tart with a creamy finish. It reminded us of an ice cream version of the frozen lemonade served at ice cream carts around the parks. A great way to end your day at the 5th annual EPCOT International Festival of the Arts.
