Disney Partners With Impossible Foods to Bring Plant-Based Burgers to Theme Parks
Vegan dreams do come true as Disney partners with Impossible to serve up more plant-based fare.
Disney is continuing to diversify its plant-based options with its latest partnership with Impossible Foods. The company announced the collaboration this week—naming the Impossible Burger as its “Preferred Plant-Based Burger.” The meaty product will begin to roll out in a number of menu items across all US-based Disney resorts, cruises, and theme parks in the next coming weeks. In celebration of this partnership, Disney will debut three new menu items in concert with the opening day of California Adventure’s Food and Wine Festival on February 28. Park guests can look forward to a Petite Impossible Burger (Avocado Time kiosk), Impossible Cheeseburger Macaroni and Cheese (Nuts About Cheese kiosk), and an Impossible Meatball Sub (kiosk to be announced). For now, these items all contain cheese, egg, or are served on non-vegan buns, but the park is actively upping its completely plant-based fare. Disney introduced over 400 plant-based options to the Magic Kingdom in Florida in the fall of 2019 and is working on replicating this massive effort in California this spring. For now, the Dole Whip, gumbo bread bowls, Mickey soft pretzels, and Ronto-less Garden Wrap (in Galaxy’s Edge) will feed vegan park-goers in California.
