    Hi, I have a LOT of dietary restrictions and can't eat much. For restaurants with "all you can eat" options, is it at all possible for me to stay and sit with my party but not eat?

    Hello Nicole and thanks so much for stopping by planDisney with such an important question about visiting Walt Disney World Resort.

    My family really does enjoy all the different and varied dining options on offer at Walt Disney World Resort.  However, I can totally relate to not everyone in the group being hungry for a large all-you-care-to-enjoy meal at Walt Disney World Resort, all at the same time - because this happens in my family too.  

    I'm more than happy to share that in my own experience of dining at any Walt Disney World Resort restaurant that it's never been an issue for a family member of mine to just be sat at the table, and yet not eat along with us.  Simply explain to the Cast Member serving your table that you won't be dining along with the rest of your party - it really is as easy as that! 

    Nicole, it may be useful for you to know that Disney Cast Members really do take care of Guests who have Special Dietary Requests whilst they are visiting Walt Disney World Resort.  Many typical food allergies are accommodated by Special Dietary Requests plus special care is taken for Guests with diabetes or gastric bypass and lap bands, or for Guests who follow low-carbohydrate, low-fat, low-sodium, no-added-sugar diets or require plant-based diet options.  

    It's also possible to email Cast Members with any specific questions you may have by emailing - special.diets@disneyworld.com

    I really hope I've been able to provide a little insight and reassurance for you today Nicole.  If I can help you further plan your upcoming June vacation to Walt Disney World Resort, please don't hesitate to pop back to planDisney where I'd be more than pleased to assist you.

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
