Guests at Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and Disney Cruise Line will soon be able to chow down on some planet friendly, plant-based meat options from Impossible Foods, one of the world’s leading producers of meat alternatives. Disney and Impossible Foods have been developing a relationship with food booths at EPCOT’s festivals for the last few years, but they’ll begin going steady on February 28th when the Food and Wine Festival opens at Disney California Adventure.
Impossible Foods menu items at the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival, include:
- Petite Impossible Burger with Guac and Pepper Jack Cheese at Avocado Time Marketplace
- Impossible Cheeseburger Mac & Cheese at Nuts About Cheese Marketplace
- Impossible Meatball Submarine at Paradise Garden Grill
Impossible Foods Head of Culinary, J Michael Melton, will also be offering live demonstrations on March 7 and March 8 as part of the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival.
“We are thrilled to be working with Disney,” said Dennis Woodside, President of Impossible Foods. “The millions of park-goers who visit Disney Parks and Resorts and sail on Disney Cruise Line each year – including those who are reducing their impact on the environment by eating less meat – will now be able to order the Impossible Burger and other delicious dishes made with our plant-based meat. We look forward to the exciting opportunities ahead with this new relationship.”
“We’re excited to add more items featuring the Impossible Burger to our menus,” said Chef John State, Culinary Director at Disneyland Resort. “We’re always looking for ways to bring more flavor, innovation and creativity to the Disney dining experience and we’re delighted to include Impossible Foods in new dishes that our guests and fans are sure to enjoy.”
While Impossible Foods are best known for their alternative meat hamburger products, they’re also developing other plant-based meat protein alternatives like Pork and Fish.
About a year and a half ago I made the switch to an entirely plant-based diet and it has been a real positive change in my life. I’ve lost a lot of weight, have more energy, and my overall health has improved. Eating plant-based is not just good for me, it’s better for the planet. Methane production, deforestation, and water consumption are all vastly reduced. While not everyone on the planet needs to switch to a 100% plant-based diet, if we are to move forward and help slow-down climate change, the majority of people will have to consume a lot less meat. Impossible Foods and other alternative meat companies are a key part of that solution.
Disney’s theme parks are the perfect place to introduce millions of guests a year to the world of plant-based meats. I’m glad they’re on board with a vision for the future that will leave a safer world for all creatures great and small.
