    On Mediterranean cruise 8/2014. We have several dietary issues like gluten free, lactose intolerance and food allergy. I know the ship itself handles these well, but how does it work on a shore excursion? In Rome, the excursion we like includes a meal. thx

    Ahoy Carrie!
    You are going to have an amazing Mediterranean sailing onboard the newly re-imagined Disney Magic next summer!  It is sure to be a trip of a lifetime for your crew!
    This is an excellent question, and I contacted the Disney Cruise Line Port Adventure Team to provide you with the information you need so you will be prepared come August.  What I was told is that once you have booked your excursion, you will need to contact Disney Cruise Line Special Services at  The team will check with the restaurant or food supplier to make sure your dietary needs can be met on the tour.  There is usually not a problem accommodating dietary issues, but the Special Services Team will let you know if there are any concerns once you are in contact with them. 
    Thank you for visiting the Moms Panel with your question, Carrie!  If you think of anything else, please let me know, and I'll be happy to assist you again!
    Have a magical day!
