Last year Disney rolled out plant-based menu options at every just about every single one of its restaurants including meatless entrees, snacks, and desserts.
And according to CNBC.com, Disney has just officially announced it will be working in partnership with Impossible Foods (makers of the Impossible Burger) to bring more even meat alternative solutions to Disney’s hungry masses.
Due to growing health concerns and an awareness of the impact of raising livestock has on the environment, a new classification of dietary needs is emerging. They’re known as “flexitarians” and while many don’t identify themselves as entirely vegetarian or omnivorous, they’re folks who are looking for healthy meat alternatives to reduce their daily meat intake. That’s where Disney is hoping Impossible Burger will fill in!
Impossible Burger will now be the “preferred plant-based burger” of Disneyland, Disney World and the Disney Cruise Line, which likely means we’ll be seeing more of the meat substitute product at the Disney parks.
This year, the Disney Calfornia Adventure will offer an Impossible Meatball Submarine at Paradise Garden Grill when the 2020 Food and Wine Festival begins February 28th as well as the returning Petite Impossible Burger with guacamole and pepper jack cheese at Avocado Time and an Impossible Cheeseburger Mac and Cheese at Nuts About Cheese.

And when Epcot’s 2020 Flower and Garden Festival kicks off March 4th in Disney World, you’ll find an Impossible Farmhouse Meatball with lentil bread, spinach, marinated vegetables, and creamy herb dressing at Trowel & Trellis, an outdoor kitchen hosted by Impossible Foods.
Trowel & Trellis’ Farmhouse Meatball made our Best of the Fest last year! Read more HERE!
Never tried an Impossible Burger before and worried about squandering one of your vacation meals on trying the new meat alternative?

I eat the impossible sliders at Nomad Lounge on every trip. As a flexitarian myself, I love having this delicious meat-free option.
Hopefully people will look up the ingredients of these fake, processed foods before deciding they are a healthy option. I mean, if you are choosing not to eat meat for ethical reasons, that’s one thing. But thinking these Impossible versions are a healthy choice is not accurate.
We went to Deluxe Burger in Disney Springs February 23 and couldn’t believe our disappointment in how the burgers were cooked!!! My husband ordered the Classic Cheeseburger Medium Rare and I ordered the same burger Medium Well. The receipt I received and the little wooden sticks to indicate the desired doneness were as ordered. However, both burgers were the next thing to well done!!! Our daughter and her husband had gone there about 2 months previously and had everything done exactly as ordered. When you spend $24.99 for the Classic Duo as we did that includes 2 burgers, a fry to share and 2 refillable drinks I would expect to have them cooked as ordered. We even talked with a cast member in Guest Services that same day and she said she experienced the same thing when she ordered well done and had hers come out with pink in the meat. You do save $9 by ordering this combo over individual pricing and the drinks are refillable, but what a disappointment. There weren’t any onions on them either. Yes, I should have given them back to be redone, but after you wait in the line, you just don’t want to wait any longer.
The past 2 years the Impossible Sliders have been offered at Food N Wine in Epcot, and they are delicious. Can’t tell they aren’t actually beef. I don’t have to or choose to eat plant based, but I def like their burgers so I’m happy to know if I want to eat them, they are offered
I hope that the Impossible Burgers are not replacing the veggie burgers that were already offered by Disney. The Impossible Burgers are not healthy and really quite scary when you look into it. The veggie burgers offered previously on Disney Cruise Line were amazing, very tasty and had real vegetables in them!
The issue I found with ordering vegetarian burgers at Disney is that the burgers are cooked on the same grills as meat burgers. I have been a vegetarian for over 50 yrs and when I took a bite, I got very sick. I have since asked every time I go to order one & have gotten the same response – cooked on same grills with meat. They need to change this. Especially when the vegetarian options are more expensive.
