One major concern you may have is knowing what options are available at Tokyo Disney Resort for vegan and vegetarian-friendly food options. While a lot of the cuisine in Japan relies on meat as an ingredient (vegan food is not common, which makes it a challenge), there are options out there. That’s where we come in.
Our friend veganminniemouse has carefully researched and crafted a detailed list of vegan and vegetarian-friendly dishes and snacks at Tokyo DisneySea. They have allowed us to share this invaluable information with you to hopefully relieve some stress and anxiety — and I’ve also included printable pdfs or images you can save to your mobile device.
While I am not vegan nor vegetarian, I can appreciate the concern about food options and not wanting to survive off bags of chips from a convenience store.
Here’s what you are able to find for vegan and vegetarian-friendly dishes and snacks at Tokyo DisneySea, along with resources for your travels within Japan. See our list for Tokyo Disneyland.
This information is correct as of summer 2017. If anything is outdated, inaccurate, or missing, please let us know in the comments.
