    Members of my family have an allergy to peanut oil. Who do I contact to see what types of oils restaurants use especially Biergarten Restaurant, Restaurant Marrakesh and Teppan Edo? Love the panel. So much useful information.:)

    Most special diets can be accommodated at Walt Disney World. There is an entire department at Disney Dining dedicated to helping guests with food allergies, food intolerances, other medical issues, and religious-based food requirements. They have loads of experience helping guests with peanut allergies.

    There are two things you should do to make sure your family has a safe trip:

    - Alert Disney Dining (407-WDW-DINE) to your situation. They will make a note of the allergy on all of your advance dining reservations. You should also remind your server of the allergy as you are seated. Very often a chef or other member of the kitchen staff will come out to the dining room to discuss your specific needs with you. If you are eating at a counter service restaurant, you can ask to see the ingredient list of most items. Bear in mind that this make take a few moments, particularly if there are crowds, so be sure to plan accordingly.

    - Send an email describing your situation (at least 14 days in advance of your trip) to A cast member will get back to you and can provide information about ingredients at specific restaurants.

    You can find articles about other guest experiences with allergies if you go to Click on the "search" button and type in the word "allergy." You should be able to find lots of helpful information there.
