    My husband is on a low fat/low sodium diet due to a heart condition. We enjoy character buffets for the characters, but also because we have a teenage boy who likes to eat. Is there any way we can enjoy a buffet and stick to my husband’s diet?

    Hello Sheila! There is so much to love about Character Dining at the Walt Disney World Resort! The anticipation, the food, the photo ops, and the pure Disney magic that comes with seeing our favorite characters!

    Disney Dining takes great pride in offering special menus for their Guests with dietary restrictions. Most quick-service and table service restaurants are able to accommodate most dietary requests. There are a few ways to make the restaurant aware of the special dietary request. First, you can make a note of your husband's dietary needs when booking your reservation online or over the phone. Also, when arriving for your meal, inform the Cast Member at the front desk of the specific dietary restriction. I find it is always good to inform the Cast Member serving your table as well.

    It is great to see more Character Dining opportunities returning to the Walt Disney World Resort! Tusker House at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is the most recent dining experience to return! Guests can begin to make reservations for Tusker House on June 4th with the restaurant scheduled to reopen to Guests beginning on June 20th!
