    Hello panel ! Already made 2 ADR so far, just found out that my dad will start Kidney Dialysis before we go to Disney, he has diatery needs now, how can i make sure he still follows what he can and can not have while we are there? Thank You !

    Hi Kelly!

    The good news is that the culinary staff at all of the Disney restaurants are used to catering to all types of special diets and food needs.

    You should call Disney Dining and have them update your current ADRs with the information about your Dad's special diet. Make sure you have them note his dietary needs on all future reservations you make as well.

    When you are seated for your meals talk to your server about what he can and can't eat. The chef will come out and speak with you if needed and point out the items that your Dad can have. In some circumstances they will be able to prepare a meal just for him that specifically meets his needs.

    At counter service restaurants, ask to speak with a manager if you aren't sure what your Dad can have. They will be also be able to offer you personal assistance.

    I hope this helps! Have an enjoyable vacation!
