If you’re looking for an up-to-date and fully comprehensive guide to ALL of the vegan options at the NEW 2021 Taste of Epcot International Food and Wine Festival at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, you’ve come to the right place! The 2021 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival is our first EPCOT festival that isn’t a “taste of” – it’s a complete festival! In addition the 2021 is also going to be the longest-running food and wine festival – from July 15 through November 20! Keep in mind – some booths won’t be open until October 1.
We’ll have a complete list to guide you through this year’s full festival including all the vegan “as-is” dishes as well as the easily modified vegan dishes you are going to want to sample while strolling the World Showcase promenade in Epcot. Right now, the official menus are out, so we’ve updated the list below with all the vegan options, so if you see some booths missing, that’s why – you can view the full list on Disney’s site.. We’ll continue to update as we find out what can be modified. Bookmark this page, as we’ll be adding to it as soon as we get the info.

Vegan “As-Is” Options at the Taste of Epcot International Food and Wine Festival
2021 EPCOT Food & Wine Festival Vegan Items
The The IMPOSSIBLE Burger Slider can be found at the only “all vegan” booth at the 2021 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival…Earth Eats.
Earth Eats hosted by Impossible™ (Between Imagination! and Refreshment Port)
- The Impossible Burger Slider with Wasabi Cream and Spicy Slaw on a Sesame Seed Bun (plant-based)
The slider is served on a sesame seed bun and gets a slathering of vegan wasabi cream and a topping of spicy asian slaw. It’s so so good, with just the right amount of spicy and the toasty flavor of the sesame seeds on the bun is the perfect complement.
- Impossible Three-Bean Chili (gluten/wheat friendly; plant-based; new)
I really enjoyed the chili. All of the added components of fritos, vegan cheese and vegan sour cream really made the dish, and again, once it cools down, or even just at night, I would definitely return to enjoy this again.
- Spiced Apple Twinings of London Chai Tea (non-alcoholic; new) – confirmed no honey!
- Spiced Apple Twinings of London Chai Tea with Whiskey (new)
This was REALLY sweet, but light and refreshing too, even though it had autumn flavors. Would be even better in October.
NEW! The Noodle Exchange (Near Traveler’s Café)
- Tofu Pho with Enoki Mushrooms and Thai Basil (gluten/wheat friendly; plant-based; new)
This is our second pho, the first one, pictured below, came with no mushrooms and no sauce. So if you don’t want any of the components, you can ask to leave them off. This was so spicy and full of flavor. I’ve always loved spicy food, but in recent years I have less tolerance so this tested my limits haha. But if you like spicy, you’ll probably enjoy it!
Shimmering Sips hosted by CORKCICLE (Near Port of Entry)
- Banana Bread with Mixed Berry Compote (plant-based)
I loved this banana bread! It was moist and sweet and the edges had a delicious brown-sugary coating on it. The fruit compote was full of all different kinds of fruits like blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, and more and the coconut whipped cream was the perfect topping, not too sweet.
NEW! Tangierine Café: Flavors of the Medina
- Fried Falafel Pita with Tahini Sauce (plant-based; new)
This is my new favorite. These were the lightest, airiest crispiest falafels I’ve ever had! Granted, ours were made fresh because the people before us ordered 6 sets of falafel and they ran out haha. But they were delicious regardless! The sauce was so good. I can’t wait to go back and get more.
- Stone-baked Moroccan Bread with Hummus, Zaalouk, and Zhoug Dips (new) (MODIFIABLE: replace bread with pita from the falafel and it’s vegan!)
These dips were delicious. Only $5 so a fun option to go with your falafel. The red one is an eggplant-tomato based dip, and the green is cilantro based, along with hummus. I wish the pita were toasted but they were unable to do that due to cross-contamination with the oven.
- Spicy Githeri with White Beans, Pigeon Peas, Ben’s Original Quinoa & Ancient Grains Medley, and Kachumbari Slaw (plant-based)
The base here is new this year, from the yellow rice pilaf. The quinoa and ancient grains we had were a little underdone, but we think that’s just opening day issues, and I’d definitely get this again, I love all the different vegetables and flavors.
The Spicy Kenyan Vegan Githeri replaced the lentil stew In Africa in 2019. The stew was a favorite of many. Its replacement is stellar though. The Spicy Kenyan Vegan Githeri was previously composed of curry rice pilaf, white beans and pigeon peas and is topped with a kachumbari slaw and micro greens.
We found a new item this year, the “Strawberry Smoothie” at the Donut Box for only $5. It’s really a slushy with no dairy at all, tastes like a melted strawberry frozen fruit pop.
