    I love the chefs come out and talk to allergy families at sit down restaurants. However, sometimes I need to know what options are available ahead of booking a reservations...like does rainforest cafe have dairy free icecream, dairy free cheese, etc?

    Hi Tess,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for bringing this question to us. Since my family has food allergies, we often have to tread carefully at restaurants but our experience with dining at the Walt Disney World Resort has been fantastic.

    To get a more precise answer to your question, I suggest that you email a cast member in Special Dietary Requests. Email Special.Diets@DisneyWorld.com. Although we have dined at Rainforest Cafe at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park, we have not requested dairy free ice cream or cheese. At most other restaurants, however, we have been able to order a delicious raspberry sorbet that was dairy free. I would absolutely eat it every day if I could! Rainforest Cafe does have menus posted online. The lunch menu will give you an idea of the basic items they offer.

    On our last visit, at most restaurants, we received special menus to help us navigate the dining experience with our specific food allergies. If a chef does not come out to assist, these menus are particularity helpful. We have certainly never gone hungry at the Walt Disney World Resort and, like you, have been pleased with the ways chefs accommodate our food allergies.

    Tess, I do hope you make a dining reservation at Rainforest Cafe. The setting is entertaining and the food is good! On our last visit, we had to rush through dinner to make it to the Rivers of Light show. Thankfully, the show was spectacular!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
