January was the fastest and longest month I have encountered in a while. First the flu took me out for the first few days of the year, then when things started to finally get back into a groove I got hit with another cold and then we traveled to Disneyland. It's been a busy few weeks for us over here, and thanks to a toddler, endless colds. However we are back and ready to get 2020 going!

Luckily not a ton of news, but still some fun things to talk about.

Best thing we ate in January

This is a tough one, because honestly we loved so much food we had in Disneyland. As much as I'd like to keep it on this coast, nothing stood out here as I only ate a few things when I wasn't sick. Hands down my favorite meal we had in Disneyland was brunch at Lamplight Lounge.
This table service restaurant is located in Pixar Pier at Disney's California Adventure and has some great on and off menu vegan options. Pictured are the Potato Flautas and the Veganized Lamplight Chilaquiles. These both packed a ton of flavor and some nice heat. If you are going to Disneyland, plan a brunch here!

Epcot International Festival of the Arts

The Epcot International Festival of the Arts has been going on for a few weeks now. This is just a quickie festival in the winter which showcases local and renowned artists. There are also Broadway singers preforming each night and food booths. This year we have two options, one that is vegan as is and another that requires modifying. The festival runs until February 24th.

The vegan as is option is the Plant-based Bratwurst (pictured) from Refreshment Outpost which features Spicy Turmeric Aïoli, Coffee Barbecue Jackfruit and Slaw on a Beyond Sausage.

At Goshiki in Japan you can modify the Vegetable Gyoza to be vegan asking them to omit the Mashed Potatoes from your plate.

What's new at Beaches and Cream

Beaches and Cream reopened at Disney's Beach Club so we made sure to go check it out. The new restaurant offers a lot more space than they did before, and the ice cream to go window is now an actual window. We were pretty underwhelmed with our meal as a whole. We won't be recommending the Cookie Fries to anyone, but the actual food was just fine. For dessert, go for a sundae instead.

Incase you missed it!

We went to Whispering Canyon Cafe a few weeks back and opted to not do the Plant Based Skillet. Instead we wanted to try their BBQ Jackfruit Dip and the Quinoa Cakes. We'd had the Quinoa Cakes years ago, but they have changed them a bit since then. We absolutely loved this meal and would recommend this over the skillet, yes I said that.

Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival starts on March 4th

The menus for this festival haven't released yet (taps fingers), but if it's anything like last year we're hoping to see a handful of vegan options again. We're really hoping the Impossible Foods sponsored booth returns, as well as some other plant-based options this year. We'll be out there day one checking out the situation as usual!

The 2019 options

Regal Eagle is rumored to open this weekend

In Epcot's America Pavilion they have been renovating what used to be Liberty Inn. It is rumored that Regal Eagle will be opening this weekend and on the menu is a Plant-Based BBQ Jackfruit Burger which comes on garlic toast. We're excited to check out this bun situation because I just want garlic toast.
