    My friend has 3 children (10, 7, 4) who have PKU. I know that DCL does a great job of accommodating allergies but I am wondering if there is a PKU menu available. If the kids are in the clubs during meals would it be possible to request special meals?

    Hi Melissa!

    Thank you so much for sailing to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with such an important question! I'm thrilled to hEAR that your friend is considering sailing aboard Disney Cruise Line. My son has significant medical, physical and developmental special needs, and we've found that Disney Cruise Line does its very best to accommodate all of our requests and concerns in order to help my son have a safe and fun voyage!

    I haven't seen a menu specifically dedicated to PKU onboard; however, that doesn't mean that your friend's children will not be able to request special meals prepared for them each evening in the Main Dining Restaurants! My best advice for your friend is to make a call to the Special Service Team at (407) 566-3602 as early on in the planning process as possible. Your friend will be able to tell a helpful agent details about her kids' dietary needs, and also inquire about how specially-prepared meals are handled in the Youth Clubs! Disney Cruise Line truly does a wonderful job accommodating special dietary requests and/or food allergies!

    Melissa, I hope your friend is excitedly looking at the different itineraries offered by Disney Cruise Line! I call the Special Services Team before every Disney Cruise and have been touched by their compassion and commitment to making the entire cruise as inclusive for my son as possible! If you or your friend have any other questions, please sail back and visit us again!
