    Is the pecan-smoked bacon at Chef Art Smith's safe for someone w a nut allergy? & do they serve their regular menu during brunch hours on Sunday?

    Hi Jennifer!

    Thanks for coming back to see us with another question. We're always glad to help.

    I have yet to have the pleasure of dining at Chef Art Smith's Homecomin', but I hope to enjoy a meal there one day soon. I have only heard rave reviews about the menu and experience there so it's high on my must-do list! Those hush puppies are practically calling my name, and I know my family would get a kick out of trying the Fried Chicken & Doughnuts. It sounds like the perfect sweet and savory option!

    I know food allergies are of great importance when deciding where to dine, so I called the kitchen manager at Homecomin' to try to get you the most accurate information. They advised me that their Pecan-smoked Bacon does not contain any nuts, but it is smoked with pecan wood during the cooking process. Based on my research, pecan wood does not contain any nut protein which is the typical cause of an allergic reaction. However, my best advice would be to discuss this with the staff in person when you arrive and get clear medical guidance from your doctor. My son has a pecan allergy and I would likely avoid it just for my own peace of mind.

    As I was chatting with the kitchen manager I also asked about the menu offerings during weekend brunch. He let me know that the full menu is always available during operating hours, but offerings exclusive to brunch would only be available when scheduled (typically 9:00 a.m. - 1 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays). Once you've finished your meal be sure to take time to check out all the shopping and dining options at Disney Springs. We like to pick up a few Gideon's Bakehouse cookies to enjoy on the trip home. It keeps the magic going even after our vacation has come to an end.

    Jennifer, I hope this helps you make the right choice for your travel party. If we can answer any additional questions please don't hesitate to come back and let us know. Wishing you a delicious visit!

    Magic and memories,
