    How does Disney Cruise Line Dining handle dietary restrictions? Will they alter a dish? I personally have two digestive diseases that make me unable to eat certain foods such as chocolate. I wanted to know if they have other options for people like me.

    Ahoy Jennifer –

    Thanks for stopping by for a visit with us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. When it comes to food allergies and dietary restrictions, Disney Cruise Line goes above and beyond to help guests have the vacation of a lifetime! I speak from personal experience as I have a dairy allergy and when I am sailing with Mickey, I can eat worry free. Start by contacting Disney Cruise Line Special Services at (407) 566-3602 to discuss your dining restrictions with responsible cast members. Then, after boarding the ship, make sure that you mention your food restrictions with your Head Server or anyone on your Dining Service Team. When I have done this in the past, the team pulls out paperwork and makes notations about my restrictions that follow me from every restaurant on the Rotational Dining schedule. I am then given special help to decide what is safe on the menu for me to eat, and yes, many times the chef has altered a dish by removing the dairy so that I can eat. Now, guests can make simple dietary requests themselves at the time of online booking (lactose free, gluten free). My biggest problem is not my food allergy but my expanding waistline while dining with Disney Cruise Line. Jennifer we are so happy you asked such a relevant question and hope to “sea” you back soon!
