As a Disney travel influencer and a frequent visitor to my dad in The Villages, I love stopping by Disney Springs before catching my flight back home. With a vast array of shopping and dining options, it’s the perfect place to spend a few hours before your flight. Whether you’re looking for a quick bite, some retail therapy, or entertainment, Disney Springs has it all! And as a plant-based foodie, I have put together my five favorite plant-based dining options and must-do activities that you can enjoy while you’re there.

  1. Dine at The Polite Pig: The Polite Pig is a must-visit for anyone looking for delicious, smoky barbecue flavors. Their BBQ Jackfruit Sandwich is a standout, and the sides like Mac and Cheese and Collard Greens are not to be missed either!
  2. Enjoy a Sweet Treat at Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC: Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC is a plant-based paradise for sweet tooths like me. From their famous Chocolate Chip Cookies to their seasonal Cinnamon Rolls, everything is gluten-free, vegan, and totally divine.
  3. Shopping at World of Disney: World of Disney is the ultimate shopping destination for all things Disney. From merchandise and souvenirs to clothing and accessories, you’ll find everything you need to bring a little magic home with you.
  4. Enjoy a Meal at Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar: Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is a unique dining experience that combines great food, drinks, and atmosphere. Their plant-based menu includes options like the “Air Pirate’s Pretzels” and the “Rolling Boulder Sliders”. And the hangar-themed bar is a must-see in itself!
  5. Dine at Wine Bar George: Wine Bar George is a great spot for a drink and a bite. Their plant-based Charcuterie Board is a must-try and their wine selection is top-notch.

Whether you’re a local or just passing through, Disney Springs is the perfect place to spend an afternoon. With so much to do and see, you’re sure to have a great time. And with these plant-based dining options, you can enjoy a delicious and ethical meal while you’re there. So, what are you waiting for?
