Disney is known as the' happiest place on earth' for good reason, and now it is bringing added joy to the millions of vegans around the world who plan to visit there. Not to mention those who just want to eat more plant-based food for environmental reasons.
In an alliance with Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, Impossible Foods will now become its official plant-based burger vendor. It will provide meatless vegan food in Disneyland in California and Walt Disney World in Florida as well Disney Cruise Line ships. Impossible Burger is the flagship product from Impossible Foods, and its plant-based patties claim to rival ground beef from cows for taste.
A range of plant-based Impossible Burger products will soon be available at multiple locations across the resorts, including Tony’s Town Square Restaurant in Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World and Smokejumpers Grill in Disney California Adventure at Disneyland. The alliance follows Disney’s September 2019 announcement of plans to add plant-based options to its US theme parks.
Over 400 plant-based dishes are now available at Walt Disney World, and more will become available at Disneyland in spring 2020. Three new products were debuted at the recent Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival, including the Petite Impossible Burger with guacamole and Pepper Jack cheese, the Impossible Cheeseburger Mac & Cheese and the Impossible Meatball Submarine.
“We are thrilled to be working with Disney,” said Dennis Woodside, president of Impossible Foods. “The millions of park-goers who visit Disney Parks and Resorts and sail on Disney Cruise Line each year – including those who are reducing their impact on the environment by eating less meat – will now be able to order the Impossible Burger and other delicious dishes made with our plant-based meat."
