Halloween Time Seasonal Vegan Options in Disneyland, California Adventure, and Downtown Disney (2022)

Halloween Time is upon us again! Below is everything I found that is vegan specifically for the Halloween Time menu.

Note that this Halloween Time menu is separate from Oogie Boogie Bash. What is listed here, Halloween Time, is for the duration of the Halloween Time season (September 2 to November 10), while the select nights on which Oogie Boogie Bash takes place will have additional foods (mostly candy in the treat trails). I went to the first Oogie Boogie Bash on September 6, and you can see the vegan options there on my recent reel on Instagram.

I am with you that it is very sparse and I hope that they will have more vegan options on future seasonal menus. If you have a moment, please take a moment to write a quick, polite, and positive feedback email to Disneyland requesting more vegan options in the future. And please remember that I’m just a guest like you, and complaining to me doesn’t do anything except for exhaust me – so please direct your complaints to a place where it can make a difference 🙂

Paradise Garden Grill

At Paradise Garden Grill in California Adventure, there is always a rotating menu corresponding to the season/festival. For Halloween Time, there is a dish labeled “plant-based,” meaning “contains no animal-based meat, dairy, eggs, or honey,” i.e. it will be vegan without modifications:

Chorizo Quesadilla: served with Salsa Verde and Escabeche

This is entirely different from any other Paradise Garden Grill item we’ve seen before! It was quite straightforward, with the vegan cheese (probably Follow Your Heart, but it may change based on they day, so make sure to double check if it matters to you), and they melted it quite well. And then a hearty portion of vegan chorizo, probably that same soyrizo brand that you see in most supermarkets. The creamy salsa verde sauce on top was a great addition. But otherwise it’s not something that I would recommend that you absolutely get over some of the other great vegan options in DCA. It’s quite good if it’s convenient for you to eat at Paradise Garden Grill that day, if the rest of your party wants to eat there, etc., but if you’re looking for the absolute top tier, then this would be probably second tier for me. Still, I’m so grateful that they continue to offer vegan options at Paradise Garden Grill for the seasonal menus!

See my Youtube channel for a more thorough review of it!

Boudin Bakery Cart (Available September 2 through November 10)

Vampire Mickey-shaped Sourdough: These are back again! Find the Boudin Bakery Cart right outside of the Boudin Bakery, where these sourdough loaves are made fresh. Make sure to look for them earlier in the day, since they tend to sell out sometime in the afternoon.

Galactic Grill (Available September 2 through November 10)

Blood Orange Slush with a swirl of raspberry sauce (Non-alcoholic): This drink has been at Galactic Grill for Halloween Time for several years already, and it has always been vegan in the past. It’s a sweet orange/raspberry slushy drink. Shown here on the menu board next to the Veggie Wrap, which is the year-round vegan option for lunch/dinner hours at Galactic Grill.

Red Rose Taverne

I went to ask a cast member at Red Rose Taverne about the following:

Pumpkin Cold Brew: Cold brew flavored with pumpkin, vanilla, and spices topped with whipped cream (Non-alcoholic) (New) (Available September 2 through November 10)

The cast member said that it is made with whipped cream and also half and half, so if you omit those two, it is vegan. The pumpkin flavor is in the coffee part, so it would still be pumpkin flavored, but it would be very strong. I’m not sure how good it would be, I didn’t try it, but for over $6, I feel like you could get a better bang for your coffee buck elsewhere.

Cocina Cucamonga Mexican Grill (Available September 2 through November 10)

This seems vegan – I couldn’t verify the brand of sangria to look it up on Barnivore, but since it is so hard to find that information, that borders on the edge of “possible and practicable” in the definition of veganism. So you can make your own call there!

Hibiscus Sangria: Red sangria, cinnamon-spiced hibiscus agua fresca, and fresh fruit with a candied hibiscus rim

Fairfax Fruit Market (Available September 2 through November 10)

Blood Orange Lemonade: Blood orange agua fresca with lemonade (Non-alcoholic) (New)

Hollywood Lounge (Available September 2 through November 10)

Blue Rum Cocktail: Rum and orange liqueur with lemon-lime and cherry flavors (New)

Cranberry Sangria: Sangria and orange liqueur with cranberry juice (New)

Lamplight Lounge (Available September 2 through November 10)

One Last Toast: Patron Silver Tequila, cucumber simple syrup, tamarind simple syrup, and fresh lime juice garnished with a marigold (New)

Mortimer’s Market (Available September 2 through November 10)

Vampire Mickey-shaped Sourdough: These are also found at Mortimer’s Market sometimes, in addition to the Boudin Bakery Cart where they are made. Make sure to look for them earlier in the day, since they tend to sell out sometime in the afternoon.

Pacific Wharf Cappuccino Cart (Available September 2 through November 10)

I went and asked the cast member at the cart about the following:

Pumpkin-spiced Horchata Cold Brew: Creamy blend of cold brew, pumpkin-spiced rice, and cinnamon beverage (Non-alcoholic) (New)

The cast member said that the Horchata does indeed contain dairy milk in addition to rice milk, so there is no way for this one to be vegan. This has been the case with previous horchata drinks at this cart, so it was not surprising.

Smokejumpers Grill 

Cranberry-grape Punch: Cranberry and grape juices, ginger ale, blackberry syrup, blackberry purée, and orange flavor-filled boba (Non-alcoholic) (New) (Available September 2 through November 10)

Cranberry-grape Cocktail: Black vodka, cranberry and grape juices, ginger ale, blackberry syrup, blackberry purée, and orange flavor-filled boba (New) (Available September 2 through November 10)
