    We are celebrating my daughter's 4th birthday at CRT. We have opted not to pre-order anything special and leave it to DISNEY magic, but she has food intolerances. Do you think they could still bring her a cup of fruit or dairy free ice cream with a candle?

    Hi Julie,

    I can't think of a better way for a little princess to celebrate her 4th birthday than at Cinderella's Royal Table!

    Disney does an amazing job of trying to accommodate as many special dietary requests as possible. I highly recommend that you send an email to They have a form they can email you to fill out & return to them regarding your daughter's food intolerances. Make sure you do this at least 48 hours prior to your reservation (I usually do it a couple of weeks in advance).  I would also be sure to note any requests regarding the dessert. They will try to accommodate your requests to make it a pixie dust filled birthday celebration.

    When you arrive at CRT, be sure to mention to the host and your waitress that you have a placed a special dietary request. They usually have it noted but that will help prevent any delays or confusion.  I usually take a copy of the form with me that I emailed back to the special dietary department. 

    Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
