    Hi. We will be arriving for our first ever Disney World trip. Is there a minimum order for certain table service restaurants (not buffet). We have difficult dietary restrictions, but would love to experience the restaurants. Could we order beverages only?

    Hi Noa!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I'm so excited to hear you'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort for the very first time. You're in for a vacation full of magical memories to last a lifetime!

    I understand how difficult it must be sometimes to dine out at restaurants when dealing with strict dietary restrictions. The good news about dining at Walt Disney World Resort is that Guests with special dietary requests/needs (food allergies, food intolerances, medically restricted diets, kosher, halal and more) can often be accommodated at table-service restaurants and select quick-service locations throughout the resort. That being said, at this time, there is not a minimum that you must order at a table-service restaurant in order to experience that particular dining location. You are more than welcome to reserve a table and just order beverages, if that's the best option for you.

    I encourage you to check out this information regarding Special Dietary Requests to see if possibly your dining restrictions could be accommodated for a meal in one of the restaurants you'd like to visit. For further assistance and questions, you can reach out to the team at Special.Diets@DisneyWorld.com to navigate your needs within the dining system.

    I hope this information is helpful in planning your Disney vacation. Please let us know if you have any further questions before your trip! Have a magical day - Diane W.
