    First trip to WDW June 24-June 30. Family of 4: husband, me boy (7), and girl (4). Staying at Port Orleans Riverside. What amenities are there in the room (coffee maker, hair dryer, etc.)? Also how to notify allergies for all dining reservations?

    Hi, Jenny! Congratulations on your first trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth! I know all this planning can be overwhelming, so thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel for help!

    At Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort, you will find complimentary Wi-Fi, a Hair dryer, a safe for valuables, telephone, a coffee maker (models may vary, but for the most part is a 2 cup Mr. Coffee), an iron with ironing board as well as a mini-fridge inside the large dresser. You’ll also find plenty of towels as well as shampoo, conditioner and bodywash, and you can ask for extras of these by dialing the Housekeeping button on your phone - I’m always asking for more conditioner for my long hair!

    As far as allergies go, Walt Disney World Resort takes these very seriously, from a gluten intolerance to the most serious of conditions. While you will find pre-arranged allergy menus in each restaurant and can work with your server on your meal, you can also ask to speak to a special diets-trained chef, who will visit your table to make sure that the meal is prepared to your specifications. Quick-service restaurants can cater to corn, gluten, dairy, fish and other allergies fairly quickly, but please allow about 10-15 minutes extra for your meals to be readied safely and professionally. My gluten and dairy free friends I travel with have been overjoyed with the options they have available! 

    When you make your dining reservation, please indicate any allergies, or inform a Cast Member by calling (407) 939-3463. Feel free to direct all specific dietary questions to Special.Diets@DisneyWorld.com, as well.

    I hope you have a fun, comfortable and delicious vacation! ~ Lindsey P.
