    First Disney Cruise Jan 18. My husband has dietary restrictions (no added salt) that are not in the options to choose in the app. How can we let them know of his needs? And is it true we can’t bring any food on board? He usually takes homemade bread. Thx!

    Ahoy, Amy! Congratulations on your very first Disney cruise. Looks like you’re bound to set sail on the Disney Magic with a MARVELous itinerary! While I’ve not yet experienced a Marvel Day at Sea, I can say that our Star Wars Day at Sea was out of this galaxy! I would expect lots of superhero interactions during your entire day devoted to Marvel.

    Your family couldn’t be in better hands as far as dietary needs and food allergies than Disney Cruise Line. My first tip is to contact Disney Cruise Line prior to your sailing to discuss your husband’s dietary needs if you have not already mentioned this on your reservation. They will pass the information along to your rotational dining team that your husband requires no salt added. 

    Rest assured, the dining staff does a wonderful job to ensure your dining experience is magical. Just to be safe, I would suggest you tell your dining team about his no salt added needs on the first night...that is, if they don’t ask you about it first. My daughter has a peanut allergy, and before I could say one word to our servers, they were telling me they already knew about her condition. I found that incredibly reassuring! 

    Good news! Your dining team travels with you to a new dining room each night and will continue to be aware of all your dietary needs. It’s almost as if they are mind readers that way!

    Disney does recommend that those with food allergies and dietary needs try to eat all of their meals at table service restaurants instead of the quick service spots as the table service locations are more adequately prepared to handle these requests.

    As far as bringing food onboard, the only items permitted are nonperishable snack items. Homemade items like bread are on the Prohibited Items list. However, the one thing there is never a shortage of on a Disney cruise is FOOD! 

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions. We'd love to help. Have a MAGICal vacation!
