Finding vegan breakfast options inside the Walt Disney World theme parks can be a bit of a challenge, especially inside EPCOT – Garden Grill helps in that quest! Quick service options are still hard to find, but EPCOT actually has two table service locations offering vegan items (and both happen to be character dining). Epcot’s Garden Grill restaurant offers a wonderful vegan breakfast spread with beloved Disney characters, and they just brought back their breakfast service including updated vegan breakfast options. You can read our vegan Garden Grill dinner review as well!

Garden Grill Vegan Character Breakfast Review in Epcot at Walt Disney World
Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Harvest Feast is an all-you-can-eat full service dining experience inside The Land pavilion in Future World West.
The restaurant is located on the second floor of the pavilion and is unique in its design.
The dining room is circular in shape and rotates slowly throughout your meal service offering exceptional views of the Living with the Land attraction down below. When it first opened, this spot was called “The Good Turn” restaurant (anyone old enough to remember that?) and was a family favorite growing up.
There are two levels to the restaurant with seating at both booths and stand alone tables.
Farmer Mickey, Pluto and of course Chip & Dale will pop by your table.
Garden Grill Vegan Breakfast Offerings
Previously, before the parks closures in 2020, the vegan options for breakfast here at Garden Grill included a vegan blueberry muffin, a bowl of fresh fruit, and the skillet featuring a veggie fritter (made with black beans, greens and white rice), tater tots, and vegan/gluten-free Mickey waffles. Times have changed and there are some new items in the vegan version of this all-you-care-to-enjoy breakfast at Garden Grill.
The table is now served fresh slices of watermelon. The non-vegan breakfast comes with a cinnamon pull-apart loaf which according to my vegetarian daughter tasted like biscuit dough mixed with cinnamon and baked in a loaf. As of now, we don’t have any vegan breakfast pastry or bread items, but hopefully that will be added to in the future, since there are also no gluten-free bread options that we could see either. We were there on the second day of their re-opened breakfast service.
Also included in the price are soft drinks, so coffee, tea, soda, as well as orange juice and POG (Passion, Orange, Guava) juice, which is what I enjoyed. I also got a coffee, and was given a Silk soy milk carton from downstairs at Sunshine Seasons food court area.
If you are a vegan dining with non-vegans, you will of course be given your own skillet separate from the non-vegan items on the Garden Grill breakfast menu (same with the dinner service). The non-vegan skillet includes scrambled eggs, a cheesy hashbrown casserole, Mickey waffles, bacon and a flank steak. So if you have a vegetarian with you they can switch out for the vegan sausage too. The vegan breakfast includes Just Egg scramble, roasted potatoes, vegan/gluten-free Mickey waffles, and vegan sausage patties. I *love* when the vegan version of something is essentially the same as the non-vegan version, and here that is pretty much the case. I do think the vegan version should be a few dollars cheaper because we are not getting two of the items the non-vegan version has.
I love Just Egg, so that part was great and cooked well. The potatoes were actually delicious and very well seasoned. The potatoes are also on the allergy menu, so these aren’t just a sad replacement, they are good in their own right. The vegan sausages were great and nicely seasoned as well. I do hope they’ll add a vegan bread item in the future but I definitely left stuffed.
Breakfast at Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Harvest Fest will run you $42 and is all-you-care-to-enjoy, $27 for children 3-9. The restaurant serves breakfast from 8:00 – 10:30 a.m and reservations are highly recommended. It is pricey, but you are paying for the location and the character interaction as well as the all you can eat aspect. It’s up to you if that’s worth it for your family or visit to EPCOT and Walt Disney World.
