Disney may have taken over more than a few companies but how much longer could they have avoided accepting veganism and making money off it?
The United States popular culture is diving into veganism and Disney folks are taking veganism seriously. In an unprecedented announcement on Tuesday, Disney said they will be adding plant-based food options too all dining locations in the US theme parks.
The US Initiative to accept Veganism and promote it:
This massive change is operation comes amid global climate strikes and controversial UN meet where Greta Thunberg’s thunder roared. Theme parks have always been the least homely of places for people indulging in non-meat, Earth-friendly foods. Disney can be lauded for going vegan by accepting and adapting to moving cultures.
- Disney has over 600 places to eat at the Walt Disney World in Orlando. Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California will also introduce the vegan menu along with all the uniquely themed parkland and hotel.
- Vegan dishes such as the Star Wars special “Tatooine Two Sun Hummus” and “Le Fou Festin” will become available at Orlando’s Walt Disney World as early as October.
- As soon as 2020, American Disney Parks will all be vegan-friendly. The hospitality for vegans is finally about to go sky high at theme parks too.
The Green Leaf
- All 36 restaurant places and 3 hotels with food options will be adding vegan options to the menu. But that is not all, to help all guests easily identify the dishes as ‘vegan’ by spotting the vegan Green Leaf logo.
- Disney is being careful as to not offend anyone, taking the way to call these dishes as plant-based rather than vegan. This route is only justified as the definition of Vegan is ever-changing or so it seems.
- The company did say that the items are made without animal meat, dairy, eggs or honey. This meets a version of the definition of vegan. All the same, choosing to call these dishes ‘plant-based’ is definitely a smart route.
- International Disney parks already include plant-based meal options, ranging from “Pan-fried Vegetables with Plant-based dumplings” among other long-named dishes.
