    I have a child who's allergic to milk, soy and shellfish, meat/chicken. Many of the 'plant-based' items contain soy, wo what are our options? For example, are there plant based burgers and ice creams which don't contain soy?

    Hi James!

    I'm so happy to hear that you are planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation for this summer! My son has multiple food allergies and we have found that the Chefs and Cast Members have always done an amazing job making sure he can enjoy tasty and safe meals during our visits. So I think you and your little one will have an amazing trip to the "Most Magical Place on Earth!"

    One of the amazing things about Walt Disney World Resort is that there's an entire team dedicated to food allergies and other special dietary needs. The Special Diets Team is a group of Cast Members who help Guests who need to accommodate special diets during their vacation. Since your little one is accommodating multiple allergies, including allergies that are not part of the "top eight" common allergens, I recommend that you email the Special Diets Team for specific information about the options your little one will be able to enjoy during your vacation. Also, as your trip approaches and you've secured your dining reservations, the Special Diets Team will be able to help you coordinate your meals with the restaurants you will be visiting. For this coordination, you will need to email them after you make your dining reservations and at least 14 days before your trip.

    James, please feel free to come back to see us if you have additional questions as you continue planning. Also, I recommend that you follow the Disney Parks Blog so you can get the latest announcements about everything you will be able to enjoy during your vacation! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
