The “Happiest Place” on Earth will begin adding hundreds of plant-based dishes. The rollout will begin this October at Disney World, then make its way to Disneyland in 2020. More than 400 vegan dishes will be prepared and served at Disney’s fast-service and dine-in restaurants throughout the park. With more than 602 places to eat at the theme park in Florida and California, there will be more than enough places to catch a healthy bite. Due to the park’s many themed sections, Disney has developed a themed vegan dish to follow through with the park land and hotels. Related: Impossible Burger is now available in grocery stores Hydroponics, aeroponics and aquaponics have all been showcased within The Land pavilion, especially in its “Living with the Land” exhibit.  The fruits and vegetables that are grown there, in fact, supply the ingredients utilized in the various meals and dishes throughout EPCOT and DisneyWorld. Given The Land pavilion’s commitment to symbiotic agriculture and nutrition, it seems long overdue for Disney to bring more vegan-friendly menu items to its many dining establishments. “We’re always looking for ways to bring more flavor, innovation, and creativity to the Disney dining experience,” shared Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director with Walt Disney Company. “Our guests have embraced our plant-based offerings at our parks around the globe, inspiring us to expand our menu and introduce a new menu icon, a green leaf, that will make it easier than ever to find these creations during your visit.” With Disney’s embrace of veganism, vegetarianism, even flexitarianism , expect to find such delectables as Felucian Garden Spread, Shiriki Noodle Salad, Steamed Asian Dumplings, Chili-Spiced Crispy Fried Tofu Bowl and Plant-Based Cashew Cheesecake at several DisneyWorld and Disneyland dining locations in the U.S. It is no wonder that enthusiasts and supporters can’t help but sing to the tune of “It’s a VEGAN World After All.” Via CNN Image via donformigone1

Now Avatar fans can finally explore the amazing world of Pandora in person. The much-anticipated Pandora – World of Avatar opened this past weekend at Orlando’s Walt Disney World Resort, and it looks spectacular. Guests can explore the alien planet’s bioluminescent rainforest, hike through floating mountains, and even take a thrilling 3D ride on the back of a wild banshee. The 12-acre park has been under construction for six years, and it looks like it was well worth the wait. The park is set in an area of Pandora that was not seen in the film called the Valley of Mo’ar. The alien planet was designed by director James Cameron, whose ultra-creative attention to detail has resulted, once again, in a jaw-dropping immersive 3D experience. Related: Save the dates: this is when Disney’s “Avatar” and “Star Wars” theme parks open Visitors to the valley will be able to explore the mystical jungle landscape with flowing streams, dark caves full of bioluminescent life and a “floating” mountain range called the Hallelujah Mountains. A boat ride down the dark Na’vi River will lead through pulsating, glowing vegetation to an encounter with a Na’vi shaman. For those looking for a more thrilling experience, visitors can also participate in the “Avatar Flight of Passage” 3D adventure . Guests are matched with an onscreeen avatar and take their place on a motorcycle-like flight simulator. Once in place, guests will “soar” across the valley on the back of a banshee, plunging straight down into the lush vegetation only to swoop up through the massive trees, continuing around the mountains as herds of wild beasts run underneath you. + Pandora — World of Avatar Via CNN Images via Disney World
