Welcome to Halloween Time! Let’s eat some vegan food!
Similar to last year, there are not many vegan options for the seasonal Halloween Time food, but I went all around the parks trying to figure out what was possibly veganizable. Please see the Disney Parks blog for a full list of the Halloween Time food offerings. And please let me know if you find something that I missed! 🙂
First up is the Mickey with Fangs sourdough loaf! It’s available at the Boudin Bakery Cart (in front of the bakery) and Mortimer’s Market (Buena Vista Street) in California Adventure.
Sourdough ingredients list:
The Oogie Boogie popcorn buckets are out, along with a normal Halloween bucket. They seem to be supplied in abundance. Every popcorn cart I’ve seen had plenty of them left at the end of the day. They’re not refillable AP buckets, so you’ll pay full price for popcorn each time. Yes, the popcorn is vegan! It’s coconut and canola oil, not actual butter.
The cauldron popcorn buckets have also arrived! They seem to be reasonably easy to get, but they have been selling out some days. Here is a photo of one of the buckets at a media preview event.
Next up is the Green Apple Spell Lemonade at Smokejumper’s Grill in California Adventure. It’s lemonade with sour green apple syrup, cherry popping pearls, and raspberry sauce. There is an option to add a glowing green apple cube (not pictured here — I have enough glow cubes at home already!)
The pearls are the same ones they use at Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff for the Memory Refreshers, and a couple of the drinks at Lamplight Lounge. The brand is Tea Zone/Lollicup. Here is the ingredients list:
From everything that I can find on the internet about calcium lactate, it is the salt made from lactic acid, which is fermented cornstarch or sugar, and it’s considered vegan, but please do your own research to decide for yourself. I wrote an email to Tea Zone / Lollicup a couple of days ago to try to verify that 100%, and I’ll update this as soon as they reply!
At Cocina Cucamonga in DCA, they have a Teagarita (Sweet Tea Margarita) that was surprisingly good, even though I usually find sweet tea to be a bit too sweet. I didn’t see any signs for this menu offering, but a cast member mentioned it to me, so I had to try it. It’s listed on the Disneyland app menu, though, under the “Seasonal Margarita” section.
Over at Award Wieners, they’re offering an Oktoberfest dog that I was able to modify. It’s a bed of fries with sauerkraut and green onions on top. They just sold it to me as a side of fries with a side of toppings. They’re also offering Anaheim Brewery Oktoberfest Lager. Barnivore has a company email from Anaheim Brewery stating that all their beers are vegan!
Finally, we have some Halloween themed cotton candies – candy corn (orange/yellow/white) and a purple/green one. I took photos of the ingredients lists, it’s basically sugar and dyes. Food dyes are generally considered vegan but please do your own research on those to decide for yourself.
There are also some vegan candies at the cotton candy carts! Sour Patch kids, Red Vines, and Sour Punch Ropes are vegan!
Over at the Alien Pizza Planet in Tomorrowland, there is a chili pasta dish, “Cosmic Chili Pasta – pinwheel pasta, chili, cheese, and green onion,” but unfortunately there isn’t a way to veganize it. The pasta is premade with a cheese sauce, and they only have a meat chili, not a veggie one.
Please stop by City Hall (Disneyland) and/or Chamber of Commerce (DCA) whenever you have time to thank them for the existing vegan options and to request more. And if you have a moment from home, you can also email them here to let them know that you’re enjoying the current options and would appreciate more.
Thanks for reading and I hope you have a wonderful Halloween Time! Please let me know if you find anything I can update this list with. Messaging me on Instagram (@happiestveganonearth) is the quickest way to message me.
