    Is IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party allergy friendly? We have two with a gluten allergy.

    Hi Catherine!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. As the mom to a little one with multiple food allergies, I know how challenging it can be to find tasty treats that are also allergy-friendly. Thankfully, Walt Disney World Resort has done an amazing job at accommodating my little guy's Special Dietary Requests! Gluten allergies can be accommodated at the IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party. You will want to add the allergy as a Special Dietary Request when you are booking your reservation or add it to an existing reservation by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463. I recommend that you contact the Special Diets Team in advance of your trip by emailing Special.Diets@DisneyWorld.com so they can give you more specific information about how your group's gluten allergies can be accommodated at the dessert party. When you arrive at the dessert party to check in, you will want to remind the Cast Member of the allergy on your reservation and they will help you with your safe treats.

    During your vacation, be sure to make a stop at Erin McKenna's Bakery NYC at Disney Springs for an incredible selection of gluten-free treats! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
