Eating vegan at Disney's quick service and casual restaurants is tough, but it can be done.

While most table service restaurants will gladly make accommodations for your eating preferences, and will sometimes have the chef come out and consult you about dining choices, when you are eating counter or quick service at the park, you have to plan more carefully.

Here are some ways to find vegan food at Walt Disney World resort.

Vegan Options in the Parks

Almost every counter service has vegetarian options. Sometimes these options can be made vegan or are already vegan.

Every restaurant on Disney property has a book with the ingredients of everything that they serve. They will allow you to review the ingredients within any given entree' and see if there is a way to modify it.

For example, if a veggie wrap comes with feta on it, you can often ask for one to be made without the cheese.

You can also check out the sides. Sometimes there is fruit cup or a side salad or a baked potato that would qualify as a vegan option.

Here is a list of possible places where there are vegan options or vegetarian options that may be able to be turned into a vegan dish.

You may want to plan ahead and go by early to review the menu and ingredients. That way, if you go back later and it is busy, you'll already have an idea of what to order and how to make the meal vegan.

Possible places for vegan food options at Walt Disney World. Remember that you may have to ask for a modified version of the vegetarian options.

Fresh Fruits

The other option to consider is the fresh, whole fruit that is offered at each of the parks and water parks.

Within each park is at least one area with fresh oranges, apples and bananas. Having one of each can make a nice, filling and healthy meal.

Organic

While this may change, for now, you will need to go off property in order to locate organic fruits and vegetables.

Some of the best local places that are close to the resort and that also have organic and vegan food options are Publix and Whole Foods.

Both of these stores offer a wide selection of organic fresh fruits and vegetables and are a relatively quick car or taxi ride away.

Most resort hotel rooms have refrigerator options as well or will rent one to you for your stay. Small coolers and bags are allowed in the park so you can pack your food with your for the day.

Vegan Bakery

This is Disney's nod to their vegan visitors.

Downtown Disney has its own vegan bakery where all options are vegan. Look for BabyCakesNYC in the Downtown Disney portion of the resort and try a vegan cupcake.

As with all Disney restaurants, you can ask to see ingredients for the creations.

Reviews for the bakery are overall favorable and may be a good option, especially if you are looking for a treat.

Eating Vegan at Disney Can Be Done

As you can see from the list above, eating counter service vegan at Disney can be done.

I don't suggest that you purchase a dining package since you may have to put together sides to create a vegan meal for yourself from counter service options.

While it is well-known that the table service restaurants are happy to help find options for their vegan customers, Disney quick service is also friendly.

By using the table above and planning, you should be able to enjoy a day at the park and still eat healthy, fresh and vegan.

Other Vegan Options

Most of the resort hotels offer vegan options including veggie wraps and fresh fruit.

Check out the pool bars for some surprising vegan options.

Also, stop by the guest services at any hotel and ask for the vegan options within the hotel and bars.

Most of the vegetarian options at the hotel can be made vegan by removing cheese or mayonnaise.

Do you think Disney should have more vegan options?
