No one gets left out at Disney when it comes to food allergies.
I am personally allergic to peanuts and tree-nuts, these are my go-to restaurants on our trips:
Aly’s Top Restaurants
Be Our Guest restaurant
La Cantina de San Angel
Cinderella’s Royal Table.
Aly’s Favorite 3 Safe Foods
Ice cream is one of my favorite mid-day snacks! It is a great way to cool off and safe to eat!
Disney World has some of the best snacks!
I cannot go to Disney World without getting some of their incredible snacks!
I also always make a stop at Caseys Corner for corn dog nuggets with mac and cheese before I come home!
TIPS AND TRICKS
DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU GO
Most people do not think about doing research for a vacation but this can make you have less anxiety going into your vacation. Disney has all of their menus online. While they do not have the allergy specific menus online, this still helps. You are able to go online look at the restaurants that look interesting to you and see if they have a food that is limiting you or if they seem to have a lot of options available for you.
DO NOT EAT AT PEAK TIMES
This may be an odd one for some people. I found this to be helpful because everything is in stock so you have all the choices and would not have to wait. Also going at non peak hours you can talk to the cast member about what could have your allergy in it. If you go to a quick service they have a book that lists all menu options with the possible food allergies in them. Going at non peak eating times is helpful because then you do not hold up the line trying to look at the book to see if your allergen is in the food you want.
When making your reservations you can indicate that someone in your party has a food allergy. This is fantastic because when you get to the restaurant they will already know and bring you an allergy menu along with the regular menus.
BONUS: Chef’s will come out to your table and talk to you directly about what you can and cannot have in your meal.
KNOW WHERE THE FIRST AIDE STATIONS ARE
You never want to have to use an Epipen but it is always important to know where they are in case you need it. Disney World now has Epipens and Epipen Jrs at all first aide stations, in case you do not have your own on you. It is great for you and your party to always know where the closest first aide station is.
BRING IN YOUR OWN SNACKS
Yep you read that correct! Disney World allows you to bring in your own snacks! If you do not want to risk cross contamination or misreading menus, you can bring in your safe food.
