Can I visit Walt Disney World, enjoy all that it has to offer and still manage my child's food allergies when it is time to eat? YES! Walt Disney World can be enjoyed and your food allergies can be easily managed while visiting the parks.

I visited Walt Disney World in May with my nephew, who has multiple severe food allergies, and found it easy to order tasty meals that he would enjoy.  Disney takes the stress and worry out of eating and snacking around the Magic Kingdom, even with a food allergy.  When making reservations at any of Disney's table-service restaurants, it is quick and easy to note a food allergy with your reservation.  You can also contact a Dietary Specialist at (407) 824-5967 or email about your food allergies, dining reservations and any concerns you may have in meeting your dietary restrictions.  While ordering at counter-service locations, binders are available at the cashier's stand that show pictures of available meals and lists all of the ingredients.  Once we decided on our meal choice, the manager gladly took our order and personally supervised that our meal was cooked and made with our dietary restrictions in mind. While enjoying character meals and table-service meals, the chef joined us at our table to personally discuss my nephew's food allergies and how he could accommodate us. 

At the Plaza Restaurant, our chef went above and beyond creating a "Mickeylodeon" ice cream treat just for my nephew to enjoy like the one that all of the other kids were enjoying. The same thing happened at the Cape May breakfast with Mickey and Friends, where our chef created the famous Mickey Mouse waffles minus the ingredients my nephew couldn't have.

Walt Disney World serves kosher meals at table and quick-service locations.  Two days advanced notice is required for table service locations. 

Even if you have dietary restrictions, you can still enjoy all the yummy deliciousness that Walt Disney World offers at its' numerous dining experiences.
