    What restaurant is Chef TJ cooking in Jan 29-FEB 5, 2022? My granddaughter has severe food allergies and for the past 6 years we have been trying to meet Chef TJ. Is this even possible? He is the best EVER!!

    Hi Tonya!

    I'm so happy to hear that your family is headed to Walt Disney World Resort and it looks like today is the first day of your magical vacation! You are going to have an amazing time enjoying the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration. Be on the lookout for special anniversary press pennies and medallions because they are lots of fun to collect and make great souvenEARs!

    I agree with you that Chef TJ is absolutely incredible! My son also has severe food allergies and while we haven't had the pleasure of dining with Chef TJ, we have always had awesome experiences dining with the Chefs and Cast Members at the restaurants we have visited during our vacations. While you can never be guaranteed a specific chef, Chef TJ can often be found delighting Guests at the restaurants at Disney's Beach Club Resort, including Cape May Cafe, Beaches & Cream Soda Shop and Martha's Vineyard. We visited Cape May Cafe with our son in November, and while Chef TJ wasn't our chef that morning, we enjoyed an amazing meal and my son was thrilled with an abundance of safe and tasty options!

    One of the things that my family loved during our last trip was that allergy-friendly options were available in Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering on the My Disney Experience mobile app! It's a great way to save time in theme parks because you can avoid queues in the quick service restaurants you're visiting. We loved that my son's meals were specifically marked as allergy-safe when we picked them up. If Mobile Ordering doesn't work for you or if it makes you more comfortable, specially trained Cast Members and Chefs are always available to speak with you to provide additional assistance ordering safe options for your granddaughter. 

    Sending pixie dust your way for magical dining experiences during your trip! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
