South African Vegetable Bowl for Women’s History Month 2024 at Walt Disney World

Disney just released some special menu items for Women’s History Month and we have one noted vegan item, so I wanted to share it. Here’s the info from Disney about the special culinary creations for March:

This March, Women’s History Month at Walt Disney World Resort will be bursting with flavors inspired by some of guest’s favorite women characters, like Tiana, Moana, and Minnie Mouse herself, as well as plenty of delights developed by the women and culinary cast members.

Our talented teams of chefs and mixologists have put their passions to the plate and masterfully created some truly spectacular items for guests to enjoy as they honor the women in their lives.

Boma – Flavors of Africa and The Mara

  • South African Vegetable Bowl: Curried vegetable stew, pilau rice, kale slaw, dried fruit achar, and avocado-tahini sauce (Plant-based)
    • To celebrate her heritage, Sous Chef Khuloud took inspiration from South African flavors and her Syrian roots and infused them into this plant-based dish. 

We have tried this dish before, as it’s already a menu item, but we appreciate that it’s being highlighted for March. It’s a very filling option with lots of unique flavors. Let is know if you give it a try!

Previously for Women’s History Month the Lady Tano Ahsoka Pop has been available at the Ganachery. Not sure if that’s returning as it wasn’t mentioned in the Disney post, but it has returned a few times throughout the year, so we’ll keep an eye out. It’s always a favorite. In addition to the always available dark chocolate coconut bar there. UPDATE: We checked with the Ganachery and they say they are NOT bringing back the Tano Pop for March. 🙁


Of course we wish there were more vegan options for Women’s History Month at Disney Parks, but we appreciate that they are highlighting one of the more unique items and the story behind it for this month. What vegan items would you like to see added for special holiday menus?
