    Hi moms! My 2 y. old princess is lactose intolerant and I´m worried about the meals offered in the parks and at the resort (We´re staying at Pop Century). Are there special meals for special kids? What do you recommend me to do about that?

    Hi Sarah Juliana! I'll be happy to assist you with this question. You will be happy to know that there are many dining options available for your princess at the Walt Disney World Resort. Please contact Special Diets at They will send you a Guest Allergy/Dietary Request Form to complete. Make your Advanced Dining Reservations (ADR) by calling (407) WDW-DINE and please alert the Cast Member of your daughter's lactose intolerance. The Cast Member will notate each ADR. Write down the dates, times, locations, and ADR numbers for each table service restaurant you will be visiting. Complete the Guest Allergy/Dietary Request Form making sure to include that information and send it back to If you change any ADR between now and your arrival date, you will have to repeat the process by forwarding an updated Guest Allergy/Dietary Request Form to the email address shown above. You may also call (407) 939-3463 to request a lactose-free special diet at least three days prior to arrival. Alternatively, you can contact each individual dining venue at least 72 hours in advance. In addition, it might be helpful to alert the wait-staff at the restaurant about your family's gluten intolerance. Many times the chef on duty will talk to you personally about the special diet meal options that are available at the restaurant. In order to make informed decisions at counter service locations, be sure to request the "ingredients list book." You may certainly talk to the manager about your daughter's lactose intolerance and you will be directed to suitable items that are safe for your princess to consume. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance. Have a memorable vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort!
