    I forgot to add my daughter's gluten allergy to one of my dining reservations. How do I add that info to a reservation that has already been made?

    Hello, Bonnie! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    No need to worry— a quick email to the Special Diets team at special.diets@disneyworld.com will ensure that your daughter is taken care of.  Just make sure you wait until you’re at least 14 days away from your reservation before you send your message and someone on the team should get back to you as soon as possible.

    In my experience dealing with the food allergy chefs, though, most of the time advance notice isn’t required for the most common food allergies and intolerances (as just about every quick service and table service restaurant at Walt Disney World Resort is prepared to handle those requests on the spot). In many cases, you can even see the gluten-free items listed in the “Allergy-Friendly” section of menus posted on the Walt Disney World Resort website and/or in your My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Once you arrive at the restaurant, make sure you mention your daughter’s allergy when you check in. The host or hostess will stamp your ticket with a red “ALLERGY” stamp to alert your server. You may also ask to speak to a chef at any Walt Disney World Resort restaurant. In my experience, they are always more than happy to help Guests enjoy their meal to the fullest extent--no matter their allergies or other special dietary restrictions.

    In the meantime, please let us know if there are any additional questions we can answer or tips we can provide for you, Bonnie. We’re always happy to help, too!
