genuine question: i noticed in bonny's potterworld/disneyland vlogs that she was very limited in her food options as a vegan. as a harry potter fan, do you feel like you would feel like you were missing out on the HP world experience? for example the chocolate frogs and butterbeer

Well I actually did go to Wizarding World before becoming vegan, so I drank Butterbeer, ate chocolate frog, bought Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans etc. 

When I went to the Leavesden Studio Tour in 2014 with friends, I was vegan and they weren’t yet, so they had Butterbeer, but I’m pretty sure I could have requested it without the froth on top, possibly making it vegan? Only I can’t drink fizzy drinks anyway so the hazelnut froth was the only part I liked. The pumpkin juice may be vegan though!

I’ve since been back twice as a vegan (to the LA and Orlando worlds) and still had an amazing time. With @oats-and-yoga we packed a huge container of dates, plenty of water, and actually went back to our hotel for a swim, rest and lunch in between, so that wasn’t a problem at all. With @gabi-mulder we had just had a big brunch, then froyo, had a few snacks at the park and then actually met up with @bonnyrebecca Tim, @happyandhealthy96 @mrmrsvegan etc for an early dinner. 

The magic of the world was never about the food for me, but I am selfishly glad I got to buy and try those products before I learned that they involve practices I don’t want to support. I still have the container from my chocolate frog in my room on my little harry potter shelf. 

However, with a quick google I have learned there are in fact many vegan options in the park! Here are some cruelty free things you can buy:

Apparently the margarine they use is vegan!

i wanna become vegan so bad!! but ppl keep telling me its going to be bad for my health since "the stuff my body needs is in meat, eggs, etc" and even if i dont believe them 100%, its starting to worry me )-:

I think that happens to every vegan. There are fortunately enough healthy thriving happy vegans on earth today to prove that ridiculous theory wrong. Maybe my followers can name some in the comments. I’ll start:
