    My sister in law is traveling to Disney at the end of this month. Her son has some serious food allergies, and she’s a nervous wreck.  What advice can I give her?

    Hello Nilda!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope you are having a magical week!

    My son also has food allergies and sensitivities. I would first suggest your Sister in call contact the Walt Disney World Resort Special Dietary Requests department. When food allergies are present in any guest, they are my go-to for finding out the very best information on what food options are available at various locations and what specific requests they can handle. When in the parks you can also go up to a cast member at any restaurant and tell them your needs and they will often send out the chef to talk to you about what options they have available.

    I hope this is helpful and please let me know if you need anything else as you plan your magical visit!

    See you real soon!
