Ironically, Animal Kingdom is perhaps the most vegetarian-friendly theme park at Disney World.
Here are a few of our favorites in this category:
Harambe Market (Quick Service) – This African-inspired open-air foot court is home to kitschy food stalls (with plenty of veggie options).
Try the Roasted Vegetable entree with roasted cauliflower, chickpeas, and sweet potatoes served over steamed rice with yogurt raita.
Satu’li Canteen (Quick Service) – Located in the Pandora – The World of Avatar, this quick-service restaurant is imaginative in both its surroundings and menu offerings.
Try the Chili-Spiced Crispy Fried Tofu Bowl, served with crispy fried tofu seasoned with a chili-spice topped with boba balls (tapioca balls?) and crunchy vegetable slaw.
Boma – Flavors of Africa (Table Service Buffet) – Boma is an award-winning table service restaurant in the Africa section of Animal Kingdom. This African-themed dining spot offers an enticing buffet with options to please nearly everyone, including vegetarians.
Try the Carrot-Ginger Soup, Spinach and Quinoa Salad, Watermelon Rind Salad, Spiced Sweet Potatoes, and Plantain Crisps.
Sanaa (Table Service) – At Sanaa, you will experience an exotic blend of African and Indian cooking as you watch the animals roam free in the Savanna before you. This restaurant is known for its selection of amazing bread and dips.
Try the Indian-style Bread Service, Salad Sampler, and the African-inspired Biryani.
Tusker House (Table Service Buffet) – The Tusker House is home to one of Disney’s best character dining experiences, Donald’s Dining Safari. They serve a buffet of African fare with a kids’ menu, plus character dining for breakfast & lunch.

If you try Yak & Yeti Restaurant, ask your server to have the chef modify any of the dishes to be vegetarian. It’s also worth mentioning there is a snack kiosk called Mr. Kamal’s. It’s a good place to fuel-up on vegetarian samosas, hummus, and falafel.
