Disney Teams Up With Impossible Foods

Walt Disney World and Disneyland have been seriously upping their game when it comes to plant-based offerings at the parks and resorts. Hundreds of new plant-based dishes were unveiled on Oct. 1, 2019, with new ones hitting menus regularly since then.

No longer an afterthought, Disney’s newest plant-based dishes are getting rave reviews from meat-eaters, vegetarians and vegans alike. And now, thanks to a new partnership between Impossible Foods and Disney that was announced today, guests can expect to see even more top-notch plant-based offerings hitting Disney menus.

A “strategic alliance” between Impossible Foods and Disney Parks, Experiences and Products will designate Impossible’s star product, the Impossible Burger, the “preferred plant-based burger” of Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort and Disney Cruise Line. The Impossible Burger, which many find nearly “impossible” to distinguish from the real thing, has been garnering devotees since its 2016 launch.

Impossible meats already enjoy a starring role in numerous dishes across Walt Disney World and Disneyland parks and resort, and today it was announced that three new Impossible-based dishes will be debuted at Disneyland Resort’s Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival, which runs from Feb. 28 through April 21:

—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

“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.”
