Though it may not initially seem like it, Disney parks have truly come into their own in recent years as a real food lover’s paradise. If you count yourself as one of the many who love eating their way around the Disney  parks and resorts, there are some big changes taking effect right now you should know about.

For September's dining update, Disney expands its plant-based offerings, the west coast version of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge gets a price hike, plus a new lounge is just about to open at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort!

While Disney Parks already offer plenty of plant-based options at their restaurants, both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort will be expanding plant-based food offerings at all major quick- and table-service locations. Starting October 1 (quick service) and October 3 (table service), guests will be able to easily identify plant-based options at every single restaurant with a special green leaf icon. Many new plant-based options will also be available at the Disneyland Resort starting spring 2020.
Plant-based food refers to foods derived from plants, including fruits and vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds and legumes. Disney’s plant-based items are crafted without animal meat, dairy, eggs or honey.

2. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge drinks get a price hike at Disneyland

TouringPlans recently noticed that the west coast version of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge has gotten a bit of a price hike, as Oga’s Cantina has recently raised the price of alcoholic beverages by $1, with the price of beer going by up $2 and the Rancor Flight price going up by $10. These higher prices are actually already in effect at the east coast Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, and these Disneyland hikes simply bring the prices in line with those at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
