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

The 2020 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is finally here ! This page will serve as your guide to all of the the vegan options available to you both modified and vegan as-is.

The Complete 2020 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival Vegan Disney Food Guide

This year the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival runs for approximately thirteen weeks, from March 4th through June 1st, which gives you plenty of time to plan a visit over spring break or the beginning of Summer.

There are several Outdoor Kitchens listed within the festival passport. Here’s a look at what we found on opening day of the festival.

Vegan Options at the Trowel & Trellis Outdoor Kitchen

2019 ushered in a brand new “Trowel & Trellis” Outdoor Kitchen sponsored by Impossible Foods. That kiosk returns in 2020 with the exact same menu.

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.

First up is the Chocolate Pudding Terrarium ($5.25) with chocolate avocado cream, matcha crumb and edible flowers.

The dish got a slight remake this year with the addition of a crumble crust and the removal of chia seeds and pomegranate pearls.

This is what it looked like last year.

We found the texture of this dessert to be extremely interesting. We were happy that it wasn’t just one note of pudding. The new crust gave it a unique texture. Plus it was really pretty to look at. The pudding is very rich and a darker chocolate.

Next up is the Farmhouse Meatball ($5.75) with lentil bread, spinach, marinated vegetables (onions and peppers), mint and a creamy herb dressing.

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

This offering was phenomenal! The meatball is made with Impossible burger “meat” and has a smidge of red chili paste to give it a kick.

The vegan creamy herb dressing is a nice balance to the slightly spicy meatball and is made from a base of vegan mayo.

The lentil bread was more of a pita/flatbread texture and was strong enough to hold everything together while eating it.

Honorable beverage mention goes out to the Bloomin’ Blueberry Lemon and Ginger Tea ($15.50) featuring Twinings of London with Tito’s Handmade vodka and fresh blueberries served in a souvenir mason jar. This also comes in an unleaded version ($4.50).

The third dish offered at this booth is both vegan and gluten-free. 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 and Garden Festival Vegan Grilled Street Corn Recipe

They will have three grills going with this unctuous garlic buttered corn. The Trowel & Trellis booth is located in Showcase Plaza near Disney Traders where the smell of butter and garlic roasting will draw guests in to the only all vegan booth.

Vegan Options at the NEW Bauernmarket: Farmer’s Market Outdoor Kitchen

New this year, The Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market Outdoor Kitchen in Germany will 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 LOVED these! The potato pancakes had a slight hint of onion to them and were extremely satisfying. This is a generous serving size as well.

Vegan Options at the Flavor Full Outdoor Kitchen

Another brand new kitchen that debuted at the 2019 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is the Flavor Full Outdoor Kitchen hosted by AdventHealth. 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.

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

We are sad to see the “From the Garden” dish with cashew cheese and golden beets go, but at least it’s replacement is plant based.

The new option is Grilled Baby Vegetables with Hummus Cream and Red Pepper Coulis.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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 Complete Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival Vegan Disney Food Guide

The farro has a citrus note to it. The team was split on the flavor of this dish. Half enjoyed. Half thought it had a perfume taste to it.

Vegan Options at The Citrus Blossom Outdoor Kitchen

This is the Tuna Tataki ($6.25) offering modified vegan by omitting the fish. We didn’t make it to this kiosk yet so be sure to verify with a cast member before ordering.

A seasoned pappadam crisp is topped with mango, avocado, pickled lotus root and micro greens and is dressed in a yuzu glaze. Skip the tuna and tobikko (fish eggs).

Vegan Options at the 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 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 Refreshment Outpost

Here you can order the NEW Pineapple Skewer with Tajin Seasoning ($4.75).

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

Vegan Options at The Honey Bee-stro Outdoor Kitchen

Last year we were able to modify the Roasted Cauliflower ($4.50).

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

Order this dish without the buckwheat honey carrot purée, honey blistered grapes and sunflower brittle. Everything else is vegan. What you’re left with is roasted cauliflower and asparagus which sit on a bed of wild rice pilaf which will be garnished with coriander flowers. The rice is cooked in water, not stock, and then mixed with chimichurri.

We we’re unable to confirm if this dish is still able to be modified as several of the kiosks were not prepared to be open on the first day of the festival. This being one of them. Another outdoor kitchen which didn’t open on opening day was Florida Fresh.

Vegan Options at the Florida Fresh Outdoor Kitchen

Last year we were also able to modify the Carne Guisada.

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

When picking up your food, tell the chef preparing it that you’re vegan and ask if you can swap the carne (meat) for a second black bean cake. They’re delicious and made with black beans, tomato and quinoa. Top them with pico de gallo and fresh cilantro and omit the cilantro-lime sour cream.

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

You can also get the Watermelon Cucumber Slushy here which is vegan as-is. We will post a picture of the slushy as soon as Florida Fresh opens to guests.

Vegan Options at Cool Wash

Cool Wash (near Test Track) has Coca-Cola Slushies. You can get several different flavors here.

Sadly none of the candy toppings are vegan friendly.

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

Cool Wash used to be open year-round serving frozen Cokes. That kiosk closed and now only seems to be open for festivals starting with last year’s Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.

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.

Bonus that it has a card attached that can be planted that is filled with wildflower seeds.
