Ultimate Vegan Guide to Disney California Adventure

California Adventure is pretty much the same as Disneyland, in the sense that, you might not expect them to have a lot of vegan food choices, but they actually do.

And just remember, if you’re ever unsure about a certain item, just be sure to check with a cast member, or check labels.
