Disneyland has launched a new plant-based food guide at its information kiosks to help visitors who eat vegan or vegetarian diets.

The pamphlet, which is divided by the different areas of the amusement park and restaurants, informs guests which foods sold in its outlets contain meat and animal by-products.

It also indicates if a restaurant is quick service (QSR) or table service (TSR) and if the food is for breakfast (B), lunch (L), or dinner (D).

More than 75 different options are included in the tri-fold guide making it easier for those who follow vegan or vegetarian diets to find something to eat during their visit.

The brochure also lists the ingredients in each item, meaning it is also useful for people with specific dietary requirements such as allergies.

A leaf icon highlights foods that are free of animal products, milk, eggs, and honey.

In Adventureland for example, there are five vegan options available, including Black Bean Chips with Hummus, Perkins Thai Noodles, Curried Vegetable Crew Stew, Shiriki Noodle Salad and Pineapple Float.

For those who want a quick vegan snack, Casey’s Corner at Main Street USA offers vegan hotdogs, while Frontierland restaurant Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Cafe offers vegan cheeseburgers.

The guide also mentions that all popcorn and soft pretzels which are available throughout the park are vegan.

Visitors can pick up the Plant-Based Cuisine pamphlet at any Guest Experience Team kiosk, Table Service and Quick Service locations, and either of the two Guest Relations locations: City Hall and Liberty Square Ticket Office.

The announcement comes as more and more people are beginning to turn to plant-based diets.

According to a recent survey by comparethemarket.com, more than 3.5million British people now identify as vegan.

Numerous brands have since taken note of the rising interest in veganism, launching new products with the aim of catering to plant-loving customers.

In 2019, Greggs, McDonalds, Ben and Jerry’s, Marks & Spencer and TGI Fridays all began selling new plant-based products.

Sales at Greggs topped £1bn for the first time in March 2019 after the launch of its vegan sausage roll helped drive a surge in customer numbers.
