Vegan & gluten free pizza in Disneyland

There have been many rumors about Daiya cheese at Disneyland these days, so after a few drinks in California Adventure Park, we scurried over to Red Rockett's Pizza Port in Disneyland. I asked two employees about vegan/non dairy cheese options, and they had no idea what I was talking about. Thankfully one of them called out the chef who was very knowledgable and seemed very happy and eager to "meet my dietary needs". He was more than happy to whip up a personal sized, Daiya vegan pizza with a gluten free crust! 😁 He asked if I had any food sensitivities or allergies and I made the mistake of saying "yes! Dairy!" (Which I know comes from many years of fibbing at restaurants just so they won't mess up and put cheese on my food). Because of this they didn't add any veggies due to possible cross contamination. (At least they're taking this seriously!!) It took about 10 minutes to make, but the chef walked it over to my table and gave the piping hot pie a grand presentation upon serving it. ☺️ It was the perfect junk food after a bit of binge drinking! Piping hot crust, and gooey vegan cheese. 

What I learned: 1. Don't waste valuable pizza nomming time, just ask for the chef.
2. Don't tell them you have a dairy allergy unless you really do or you're concerned about possible cross contamination. Otherwise you'll probably get some rad veggies too.
3. Be prepared to wait, but it's worth it.
4. Pizza Port seems to close a few hours before the park shuts down, so get there early. 
I'm just happy to slowly but surely see more vegan and gluten free options in Disneyland.

  1. It is nice to see that they finally care about people who are vegan or gluten-free! It is also easier for me to eat more options because of my allergies.

  2. Thank you so much for running this blog! I just moved back home to socal, and last time I had my AP, I was vegetarian and eating a lot of cheese at the park. Now I'm vegan and I have my pass again and was a bit worried about finding vegan options in the park, but it seems that there are a lot of them! Can't wait to try the vegan pizzas!
