The Complete 2024 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival Vegan Disney Food Guide

This year the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival runs for almost 10 weeks, from February 29th through  May 27th, reduced from the 17 weeks last year, and a little more back to “normal” as far as this festival goes. It still gives you plenty of time to plan a visit over spring break or right before Summer.

Huge thanks to ChrisRyanArt for this amazing map that warms my little original EPCOT Center heart!

Be sure to visit our 2024 Garden Graze page for all the places to get your stamps too!

Vegan Options at the Florida Fresh Outdoor Kitchen (near Disney Traders)

  • Florida Strawberry Shortcake (Plant-based) (Garden Graze Food Stroll) (NEW!)
  • REVIEW: We LOVED this new item. My friend suggested the pound cake used was similar if not the same as the cake base for the Tres Leches and I think she might be right. It’s sweet and vanilla-y with fresh strawberries and a dollop of coconut whipped cream. So so good. Definitely add this to your list!

Vegan Options at the EPCOT Farmers Feast Outdoor Kitchen

Returning in a new location is the vegan 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. The spicy corn chips option is not coming back this year. It’s important to note, other items in this booth will be rotating seasonally through the festival, but the corn on the cob will remain throughout the entire festival.

  • Grilled Street Corn on the Cob with savory garlic spread and plant-based cheese (Plant-based) (Garden Graze Food Stroll)
  • REVIEW: Garlicky and fresh, this is a delicious summery option to enjoy in the festival. We love it!

Grilled Street Corn on the Cob with savory garlic spread and plant-based cotija cheese

We are glad to see this is confirmed vegan and part of the Garden Graze this year, after some confusion last festival. 

The ingredients for the Grilled Street Corn with savory garlic spread are: Veganaise and Earth Balance, tamari, roasted garlic, lemon juice, shallots, parsley, chive, and plant-based cotija cheese.

 Enjoy that corn and get those Garden Graze stamps! 

Vegan Grilled Street Corn

The Grilled Street Corn on the Cob  –  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

Vegan Options at Swirled Showcase

  • Strawberry Basil Sorbet in a waffle cone (New) We checked on the sorbet and the waffle cone and confirmed both to be vegan. Always check on the waffle cone, as suppliers can change.
  • Strawberry Basil Sorbet with Hard Seltzer
  • REVIEW: We didn’t taste much basil in this at all, but it was very refreshing and the cone we had was crunchy and delicious.

Vegan Options at Refreshment Port (located near Canada)

  • Plant-based Buffalo Chicken Tender Poutine on crispy potato barrels with ranch, and plant-based blue cheese crumbles (Plant-based) (Garden Graze Food Stroll) (NEW!) 
  • REVIEW: AMAZING! We loved this dish as well. Basically the Buffalo Chicken Tenders from Food and Wine, but cut up, and served on top of tater tots. How can you beat that?? It is also a huge portion so be prepared to share!

Orange Bird Sipper at the Citrus Blossom

This year the Orange Bird Sipper  returns and despite being told opening day that it contains dairy, we confirmed with 2 chefs that it does NOT contain dairy and IS vegan as is. Enjoy!

Vegan Options at Trowel & Trellis Outdoor Kitchen (Near Port of Entry)

2019 ushered in a brand new “Trowel & Trellis” Outdoor Kitchen sponsored by Impossible Foods. That kiosk returns in 2024 but is no longer completely plant-based, which is of course, disappointing (However La Isla Fresca is now fully vegan!). The popular Boneless Korean Short Rib is no longer an option but they did bring back a fan favorite, the Farmhouse Meatball.  

  • IMPOSSIBLE Farmhouse Meatball with lentil bread, spinach, marinated vegetables, and creamy herb aïoli (Plant-based) (Garden Graze Food Stroll)
  • REVIEW: They pretty much completely replicated this item from 2019. The lentil bread on our meatball was a little thick and dry, but when you eat it together with the meatball and the herb aioli, it’s a flavor explosion. We’ll definitely be getting more throughout the festival

While I am excited for the return of the beloved Farmhouse Meatball Wrap, which was pretty much my favorite item ever, I am obviously very saddened that the completely vegan as-is booth is no more. They even brought back the “Chocolate Soil” dessert from a few years back, but it is no longer plant-based. 

Farewell to a favorite: Boneless Impossible Korean Short Rib with Cilantro-Lime Rice, Danmuji Slaw, and Kimchee Mayonnaise will not be returning for 2024…

The Land Cart hosted by AdventHealth

Food Items:

  • Roasted Red Pepper Hummus with cucumbers, olives, and multigrain crackers (New) (this is noted with the plant-based logo on the in-person menu. We did not try this opening day, but will before the Festival ends)
  • Strawberry Fruit Bar (Plant-based)

Lion King Topiary

Vegan Options at La Isla Fresca:

  • IMPOSSIBLE Jamaican Beef Patty with Spicy Papaya Syrup (NEW!) (Plant-based)
  • Coconut Tres Leches: Vanilla cake soaked with oat, almond, and coconut milks topped with toasted coconut (Plant-based) (Garden Graze Food Stroll) 
  • REVIEW: The new Beef Patty is a fantastic addition. Crispy outer shell, the meat inside is well seasoned with those Jamaican flavors of allspice, cumin and curry powder.

Coconut Tres Leches

Returning for 2024, the fan favorite Coconut Tres Leches features vanilla cake soaked in Oat, Almond and Coconut milk, with toasted coconut atop the super sweet frosting. We loved this again this year, it is such a great dessert!

Coconut Tres Leches

At this booth, I got the non-alcoholic Tropical Breeze – 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 2024 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 

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.

2023 EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival

 

Vegan Options at Brunchot (by Test Track)

This is a returning option for 2024, and this year it is still confirmed plant-based up front. 

Avocado Toast Flower and Garden

  • Avocado Toast with marinated tomatoes and plant-based cheese crumbles on toasted ciabatta (Plant-based) (Garden Graze Food Stroll)
  • NOT VEGAN: Biscuit and Gravy with IMPOSSIBLE Chicken Fried Steak and IMPOSSIBLE Sausage Gravy We have confirmed the biscuit and the gravy will have dairy and/or egg so this is one for the vegetarians. I really wish Disney would not do this with Impossible products as it causes so much confusion and if you followed me on instagram for opening day, you saw how I was told multiple times by an event chef that it WAS vegan. Terrible for those with allergies!

Avocado Toast Flower and Garden

Vegan Options at the 2024 Epcot Pineapple Promenade Outdoor Kitchen

Pineapple Dole Whip – returns to the Pineapple Promenade Outdoor Kitchen in Showcase Plaza near Port of Entry (location may be updated)

You can get your pineapple Dole Whip plain or in a Fanta soda float (similar to the I Lava You float at Magic Kingdom)

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

Tangierine Café: Flavors of the Medina (Morocco)

  • Mediterranean Flatbread with chermoula, roasted vegetables, artichoke, olives, feta cheese  We confirmed opening day that this is NOT vegan and cannot be modified. The flatbreads are pre-made with the feta added. 

We’ve been complaining that the Stone Baked Moroccan Bread and dips has been here for every festival the last year, and I guess they heard us because it’s finally gone. Unfortunately, they did not give us an alternative or any options here. 

 

Hanami (Japan)

We have confirmed that we DO have a vegan option with the Steam Bun. You can ask for the ingredient list from the allergy binder to check for yourself. There are a LOT of random ingredients, but they appeared safe to me and my fellow vegan creators. Just a note below as I like to remind people, the Frushi is NOT VEGAN or even Vegetarian as the pink soy wrap contains carmine (crushed beetles) for the dye. Sorry to disappoint, we check every year, and we will again this year. 

Steam Bun from Hanami Epcot Flower and Garden

  • Frushi: Strawberry, pineapple, and lychee wrapped in coconut rice and pink soy wrap served with whipped cream, drizzled raspberry sauce, and toasted coconut  NOT VEGAN/NOT VEGETARIAN
  • Steam Bun filled with vegetables and plant-based soy meat (New) confirmed vegan
  • REVIEW: the bun is a fun option, very unique and different from an Impossible meat dish. You can taste onions and I believe bamboo shoots in the mix, with a very asian five-spice type of flavor. The bun itself is not too thick and is a little sweet. We’d get this again. 

Vegan Options at the Epcot Refreshment Outpost for 2024

  • Seasonal Fruit Parfait with sweet chili sauce and DOLE Whip Mango (NEW!) (Plant-based) (Garden Graze Food Stroll)
  • REVIEW: I didn’t try this myself but my friends did and loved it. The chili sauce does have a kick to it so beware if you are spicy-averse!

Chili Mango Dole Whip Vegan EPCOT 2024 Flower and Garden

This looks like a baby version of the chili mango Dole Whip in Disneyland and I am here for it!!! Mango is my favorite flavor and I can’t wait to try this here!

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

Lotus House (China)

The Pan-Fried Vegetable Dumplings  are vegan as-is, even with the sauce, as confirmed by our friends at VeganDisneyWorld. We have reconfirmed this year for 2024.

REVIEW: Well these were quite a disappointment this year. As you can see, one of mine looks like it was run over lol. The portion size is kind of a joke. They tasted great, but I’m not going to wait in the huge line at Lotus House for this serving again. I hope you fare better if you try them!

Below is last year’s dumplings:

Jardin de Fiestas

  • We did not inquire about modifying here as we really don’t feel it is worth it to pay full price and essentially have beans and a tortilla. Additionally, for Festival of the Holidays, the beans contained chicken stock. We also really want to support the vegan as-is items. 

 

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. We will have to confirm the 2024 completer prize. But this year we have 11 choices for the Garden Graze, and you only need 5 to complete the stroll. 

You can read all about it here: Vegan Garden Graze at the 2023 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival and we’ll update it for 2024 when the festival opens.

Here’s a look at the completer prize, which comes in a plastic souvenir cup. You also get a packet of wildflower seeds. 

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.(I actually didn’t notice these opening day, but I will check back!)
