The vegan options at Disney’s California Adventure Park (like most Disney theme parks) have been surprisingly hard to come by. For many of the Disney parks we were able to put together a good amount of the vegan options available in the park through a bit of research.
However, with California Adventure Park we’ve researched their website, emailed, called and even live chatted.
Finally, after a phone call with a Disney Cast Member who basically polled her nearby vegan Cast Members (all employees at Disney are Cast Members) for suggestions, we’ve been able to put together this guide. We hope it can come in helpful!
California Adventure Park Vegan Options
One note that can be extremely helpful if you’re looking through menus yourself. Any items labeled ‘Plant-Based’ are free of meat, dairy, eggs and honey. They use the term ‘Plant-Based’ instead of vegan because of potential cross-contamination.

California Adventure Park Vegan FAQ
Can I Bring My Own Food Into California Adventure Park?
We were told by a member of Disney’s staff that snacks are okay, but prepared meals are not.
Their official statement on their FAQ regarding bringing outside food and beverages into California Adventure Park is:
Guests are allowed to bring outside food and nonalcoholic beverages into the parks for self-consumption, provided they are not in glass containers, do not require heating, reheating, processing or refrigeration and do not have pungent odors. Inform a Security Cast Member of any food items when you enter the park.
You may also enjoy your own food and nonalcoholic beverages in an ideal setting at the complimentary picnic area—conveniently located outside the Main Entrance to Disneyland Park.
