Wickets wicked veggie sandwich at Galactic Grill in Disneyland

Edit: no longer available to be made Vegan.
Wickets wicked veggie sandwich from Galactic Grill in Disneyland 
Tip: These sandwiches are pre-prepared, so if you ask for it with no cheese and no sauce to make it vegan, expect to wait up to 20 minutes for a fresh one (though mine took almost 30 minutes). Add some ketchup and mustard, and it comes with a side of fries or fruit, and those carbs and veggies should keep you energized the rest of your Disney trip. 🌱
(Update: multiple people have claimed they will no longer make this sandwich fairy free. I'm uncertain if this is true or not, so don't hesitate to ask)

UPDATE! They've reopened! Paradise Garden Grill closes, no more tofu skewer plates!

During one of my last visits to California Adventure, I couldn't help but notice one of my favorite food spots, Paradise Garden Grill was closed. Even worse, online sources say it won't reopen due to budget cuts, regardless of the popular healthier options that were served at this location. 
We will miss those delicious vegetable and tofu skewers, rice pilaf, cucumber salad, chimichurri sauce and grilled pita bread! At least there's always vegan pizza next door at Boardwalk Pizza!
(Update: They have reopened, but there have been reports that the rice pilaf is no longer vegan. Please ask your server. If need be, order plain rice instead)

Vegan & Gluten Free Pizza at DCA

Vegan & gluten free pizza loaded with veggies from Boardwalk Pizza in Disney California Adventure! Its delicious and filling, but available through special request only through the chef. The pizza generally takes 10-15 minutes, but is well worth the wait!

Veg Mexican food in California Adventure Park

At Cocina Cucamonga in California Adventure, there are quite a few vegan options. The grilled veggie burrito or tacos are a favorite of mine. This particular day, they weren't to generous with my tacos. Usually they're loaded with veggies, and practically falling apart due to all the vegetables, but at least it was still delicious. I ordered the grilled veggie tacos with no cheese or sour cream. Also comes with rice, beans, (there is no lard or animal stock in the ingredients) guacamole and pico de gallo. They also sell cinnamon sugar tortilla crisps which are also vegan friendly. (Keep in mind, with any sugar products there's always the risk of it being bone char sugar. Eat at your own risk!)

Vegan Berry & Chocolate ice cream bars in California Adventure!

Yummy vegan friendly sweets in California Adventure! Mixed berry bar dipped in dark chocolate, with dark chocolate chips! (The sprinkles and confetti were dairy free, but unclear if vegan). The chef was nice enough to double check ingredients, and even made it in the back separate from all the other ice cream to avoid cross contamination. Whoo! Got this at Clarabelles Ice Cream Shop, not far from the entrance. It. Was. DELICIOUS! $6ish for a bite of choco heaven. I get so giddy whenever I get to try new veg options in Disneyland and California Adventure Park 💕🏰🌱 Now I won't have to always rely on a Dole Whip (and those horrendous lines) to get something cold and refreshing on hot days!

Quick mini guide for vegan eats at Disneyland & California Adventure

I thought it would be helpful to make a quick little list of food I'd suggest in the parks. So here it is!

Snacks & sweets- I've gotta mention that the dole whips, popcorn, and Mickey pretzels are all vegan, and are definitely favorites.
There are many different carts and stands in both parks that have fruits, veggies, hummus & crackers, and chips. 
Rice milk chocolate bar, dark chocolate bar, and sugar cookies at candy palace & critter country shop. 
Breakfast - Hash browns, or gluten free vegan Mickey waffles at Plaza Inn in Disneyland. 
Pizza and pasta - it's not on the menu, but you can get vegan pizza in both parks in personal pizza size, or family size! Available at the Red Rocket Pizza Port in Disneyland and at Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta in California Adventure. Ask for it! At both locations you can order pasta (gf option) with marinara as well. 
Mexican food - vegetarian tacos and taco salad (gluten free available) is available in both parks, at Rancho Del Zocalo and Cocina Cucamonga. Ask for no cheese or sour cream and you're good to go!
Bowls - Veggie gumbo at Cafe Orleans in Disneyland is vegan. (Ask for no crackers, they've got dairy) 
Burgers - Chefs vegan burger at Carnation Cafe in Disneyland. Ask for the patty well done. Fries are fried in same oil as non vegan items, if that's a concern, get fruit!
Fine dining - Portobello mushroom and couscous maque chou at Blue Bayou in Disneyland. Vegan pasta or custom veggie tower (varies depending on the chef) at Carthay Circle restaurant in California Adventure. 
Sandwiches - portobello & veggie sandwich (ask for no cheese or sauce) from Tomorrowland Terrace in Disneyland. Portobello mushroom philly (ask for no cheese) at Award Wieners in California Adventure. *UPDATE* these sandwiches are no longer available as Vegan. 
Skewers -   Veggie and tofu skewer at Big Thunder Ranch BBQ (frontier land) or veggie skewers and Bengal BBQ (adventure land) in Disneyland. Veggie and tofu skewer (get it with chimichuri sauce) with rice pilaf and pita bread at Paradise Garden Grill in California Adventure. 
Healthier options - veggie and grain salad at Jolly Holiday on Main Street Disneyland. Ask for the side bread with no cheese. Vegan sushi in Carthay bar in California adventure, it's modified off the menu. Get it wrapped in rice paper. 
Other favorites worth mentioning - chili pretzel cone (ask for no cheese) at Cozy Cones in Cars land - California Adventure (*UPDATE* Bread come is no longer Vegan. Chili is Vegan without cheese*). Tofu teriyaki, veggies and rice. Also edamame at Lucky Fortune Cookery in California Adventure. 

These are just some favorites, but there are lots of other vegan and vegetarian options. So don't be afraid to ask your server! Happy eating!
