2022 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival Vegan Disney Food Guide

The 2022 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is finally here – but what’s vegan?! This page will serve as your guide for what’s vegan at the 2022 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival, both modified and vegan as-is.


The Complete 2022 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival Vegan Disney Food Guide

This year the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival runs for a little over 17 weeks, from March 2nd through July 4th, which gives you plenty of time to plan a visit over spring break or the beginning of Summer.

The info below is updated with the 2022 menus from Disney and reviews from opening day! 

Here’s a map you can save to your phone and guide you around the Festival to find all the vegan stops and the Garden Graze items:

Vegan Options at the Flavor Full Outdoor Kitchen

The Flavor Full Outdoor Kitchen hosted by AdventHealth debuted at the 2019 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. This location,, which can be found in Future World West between Refreshment Port and Imagination returns again with one vegan as-is option on the menu and one modifiable dish.

Healthful Trail

The returning option is Grilled Street Corn on the Cob with Savory Garlic Spread (plant-based and gluten/wheat-friendly) which is also part of the Garden Graze stroll. This dish was formerly found at Trowel and Trellis, the all-plant-based booth, but it has now switched places with the baby grilled vegetables that were in this booth previously.

Vegan Grilled Street Corn

The Grilled Street Corn on the Cob  – $5.75 has a savory garlic spread made from Earth Balance butter and is topped with a house-made vegan tofu cheese which resembles crumbled cotija cheese, the traditional topping for street corn.

We have the recipe for this corn here: Epcot Flower & Garden Festival Vegan Grilled Street Corn Recipe

Guests can also modify the Seared Salmon dish here. Just ask the chef serving at the kiosk to sub additional farro risotto for the fish.

We received a generous portion of dressed farro salad with lima beans mixed in. This was topped with a micro herb, sautéed onion and julienned watermelon radish salad.

The farro has a citrus note to it. It’s up to you if you want to try this modified dish. I happen to love farro, so I think it’s a nice additional option, but there are many other vegan items to try.

 

Vegan Option at Refreshment Port

This year they are bringing back the secret hit of last year’s festival, at the Refreshment Port on your way to Canada. Here you will find the Italian Sausage Poutine – $7.50. Not really a traditional “poutine” which is gravy and cheese curds on fries, this is more like fries with sausage and a cheese sauce. Despite the name, it IS delicious. Similar to the sausage on top of the vegan mac and cheese at the Food & Wine Festival, this sausage has a kick to it.

Italian sausage Poutine

This is still a favorite and with good reason. It’s such a delicious dish, make sure you keep room for it on your visit!

Orange Bird Sipper at the Citrus Blossom

This year the Orange Bird Sipper – $15 returns with an accidentally vegan smoothie inside! Refreshing lemon and orange Dole Whip mixed with Orange smoothie are inside of this adorable sipper. We reconfirmed that it is dairy-free and vegan this year.

Vegan Options at the 2022 Epcot Flower & Garden Trowel & Trellis Outdoor Kitchen

2019 ushered in a brand new “Trowel & Trellis” Outdoor Kitchen sponsored by Impossible Foods. That kiosk returns in 2022 with a slightly updated menu featuring a new dessert.

  • Grilled Baby Vegetables with Hummus Cream and Red Pepper Coulis (gluten/wheat-friendly) – $4.75
  • Impossible™ Sausage and Kale Soup – $5.25
  • Boneless Impossible™ Korean Short Rib with Cilantro-Lime Rice, Danmuji Slaw and Kimchee Mayonnaise – $6.75
  • (NEW!) Chocolate Cake with Whipped Cassis Mousse, Raspberry Gelato and Fresh Raspberries – $4.75

We are happy to report that every single thing at the Trowel & Trellis Outdoor Kitchen remains 100% vegan as-is straight off the menu board with no modifications needed.

We have still lost the beloved Farmhouse Meatball Wrap, which was pretty much my favorite item ever, but we have  two returning savory vegan items, so I’ll try to hold back my tears until I try these returning options:

Grilled Baby Vegetables with Hummus Cream and Red Pepper Coulis was previously at the Flavor Full Kitchen, but it has now switched places with the Grilled Street Corn. Vegetables include eggplant, carrot, zucchini, tomato and patty pan squash. The red pepper coulis and hummus were fantastic and we enjoyed dragging the grilled veggies through them for the perfect bite (this is also part of the Garden Graze stroll).

2021 version

The plating of this dish was reminiscent of what the chefs were doing at the Epcot International Festival of the Arts. Everything was presented so beautifully. This year, it was a little disappointing, I think it needs a little more seasoning or time on the grill, but it’s a nice option when you want something fresh and healthy.

baby vegetables Trowel and Trellis

At opening, we received our veggies on a skewer, but ordering again around 5pm, and the skewer was not being used. We also received varying amounts of the red pepper coulis.

Impossible Sausage and Kale Soup 

Impossible Sausage Kale Soup
NOT the most photogenic, but may be one the most delicious item in the Festival! 

Impossible Kale and Sausage Soup

2022 version above – my pro tip is to enjoy this in the evenings when the sun goes down. It was a little salty on day one but it may vary when you get it. It’s still packed with flavor and has a little kick of spice to it. 

Boneless Impossible Korean Short Rib with Cilantro-Lime Rice, Danmuji Slaw, and Kimchee Mayonnaise  

impossible short rib

This dish quickly became my favorite last year, and after trying everything for 2022, it still is number one. 

Impossible Korean Short Rib

This was our serving above on opening day, right when the booth opened. The short rib serving was smaller than last year, and the sauce was light, but we got a lot of the delicious vinegary slaw. 

Impossible Korean Short Rib

Later that day we ordered it again, and got almost no slaw, and no sesame seeds. So as always, your serving may vary. Don’t be afraid to go back and ask for more sauce or slaw etc. (Nicely of course!) you’ve paid for this item and should be enjoying it! 

EDIT: 2 days into the Festival, we were served this, which now comes with snap peas! All of the other items were still there and we got a nice glaze on the Impossible short ribs. Hopefully this is how it’s served from now on. 

Impossible Korean Short Rib

This year, the drinks are the same as in 2021. Twinings of London Energize Matcha Cranberry & Lime Green Tea (non-alcoholic) and the Twinings of London Energize Matcha Cranberry & Lime Green Tea with Hanger 1 Makrut Lime Vodka served in a souvenir Mason Jar.

Twinings of London Cranberry Matcha Energize

New this year is the Chocolate Cake with Whipped Cassis Mousse, Raspberry Gelato, and Fresh Raspberries. I was very excited to try this. Last year’s dessert wasn’t my favorite as it was overly sweet. This cake is very lightly sweet and not overwhelming in flavors. 

vegan Chocolate Cake Epcot Flower and Garden

I genuinely enjoyed the texture and sweetness level of this cake. The gelato and mousse were also very naturally flavored with raspberry, it wasn’t a fake cough-syrup-tasting raspberry flavor, so I appreciated that. This cake is a good foil to the Tres Leches, which is VERY sweet. Don’t expect to be bowled over with flavors, but again, I enjoyed it and would order it again.

Farmer’s Feast Temporary Menu Modified Option

(starting April 10 through May 21)

We are hoping that the Grilled Vegetable Bruschetta with Marinated Peppers, Zucchini, Squash, Artichokes, Goat Cheese and Balsamic Glaze on Grilled Ciabatta can be modified to remove the goat cheese. Last year we could modify the asparagus (pictured below) by removing the parmesan. We will confirm when the menu switches in April.

Warm Asparagus Farmers Feast

Vegan Options at La Isla Fresca:

Coconut Tres Leches – $4.50

Coconut Tres Leches

New for 2022, the Coconut Tres Leches features vanilla cake soaked in Oat, Almond and Coconut milk, with toasted coconut atop the super sweet frosting. I was expecting this to be more soaked than it was, it was just a little bit of liquid on the bottom, but I’ll keep checking back during the festival. I think it’s a great addition and will be very popular as it’s part of the Garden Graze as well. 

Coconut Tres Leches

At this booth, I got the non-alcoholic Tropical Breeze – $4.50 which is lemonade and grapefruit juice, frozen. It was the perfect match with the sweet cake. I loved it and would definitely get it again.

Vegan Options at the 2022 Epcot Flower & Garden Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market Outdoor Kitchen

Returning this year, The Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market Outdoor Kitchen in Germany will again be offering guests vegan Potato Pancakes with House-made Apple Sauce – $4.75.

The Complete Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival Vegan Disney Food Guide

Two potato pancakes come to an order and get a topping of applesauce. We love these traditional potato pancakes. They have a slight hint of onion to them and were extremely satisfying. This is a generous serving size as well. I have to say I do prefer the Festival of the Holidays Potato Latkes with the savory vegan sour cream, but if you don’t like the sweet, you can ask for yours without applesauce.

Modified Vegan Options at Jardin de Fiestas (Mexico)

Another new item this year at a new (for us vegans) booth. The Tostada de Chorizo – $7.75. Plant-based Chorizo and Black Beans on Crispy Corn Tortilla with Avocado Mousse and Queso Fresco (gluten/wheat-friendly). Last year this was a Sopa, pictured below and did not come with cheese. So this year it looks like they are keeping the tostada that they use for other festivals, and the rest of the fillings from last year’s sopa, but adding queso fresco as well. We have confirmed that the dish is vegan without the cheese.

Tostada de Chorizo

This was a great option. The perfect size to hold and eat in one hand. The plant-based chorizo is very mild, no real spice, like taco seasonings. I really enjoyed this though and would order again.

Vegan Options at Epcot Sunshine Griddle (Future World East)

This is a returning option for 2022, but this year, they have confirmed it is plant-based up front. 

Avocado Toast Flower and Garden

Avocado Toast with Marinated Toybox Tomatoes on Toasted Ciabatta – $5.75. Last year, this had goat cheese on top, and there were some issues with using butter to toast the ciabatta. It looks like they figured out how to toast bread without butter, and we’ve got a new vegan option. This is part of the Garden Graze stroll as well.

Vegan Options at the 2022 Epcot Pineapple Promenade Outdoor Kitchen

Pineapple Dole Whip$5.25 returns to the Pineapple Promenade Outdoor Kitchen in Showcase Plaza near Port of Entry.

You can get your pineapple Dole Whip plain, in a Fanta soda float (similar to the I Lava You float at Magic Kingdom) or with Parrot Bay Coconut Rum.

This outdoor kitchen is also where you’ll find the iconic Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade$4.50 garnished with an edible flower.

Vegan Options at the Epcot Refreshment Outpost for 2022

Here you can order the Pineapple Skewer with Tajin Seasoning – $4.75.

We found this a little pricey but the flavor was fantastic.

Pineapple skewer with Taijin

A quick note: at Refreshment Outpost there is also a Tangerine Soft Serve, but like the lime from Festival of the Arts, this is NOT vegan and does contain dairy. Which is sad because I love tangerine! Oh well.

Plant Based Garden Graze Stroll

Returning this year is the vegan Garden Graze walk which rewards guests with a FREE vegan Dole Whip upon completion.

You can read all about it here: Vegan Garden Graze at the 2022 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival

Here’s a look at the completer prize, which comes in a plastic souvenir cup. We didn’t receive seeds on the first day, but they are now being given out, so you get a packet of wildflower seeds and a new souvenir cup design.

This year they also put a 50th Anniversary Chocolate disc on top of the Dole Whip which is, yep, you guessed it, NOT vegan. This makes NO sense since the entire Garden Graze is all plant-based items. It really makes you shake your head…but just ask for yours without the chocolate and you’ll be all set. 

Thanks to the nice lady who let me take a photo of her chocolate disc just to show you all:

Be sure to grab a commemorative Disney gift card on your way into Epcot. Load it up and use it at each kiosk. It has a wrist strap and makes things so much easier when paying for your food. 

We are expecting a return of Spike the Bee Spork this year and maybe Figment spork will still be around, to cut down on your single use plastic.
