    I have strange allergies, cayenne pepper, and peaches. How can I ensure I won’t have these items in my food choices? Thank you in advance.

    Hi Shirley!

    I'm so excited to hear that you are planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation and it looks like your trip is just around the corner! My son has multiple food allergies, so I know how important it is to plan ahead to be sure that you have safe and tasty food during your vacation. In our experience, the Chefs and Cast Members at Walt Disney World Resort have always done an incredible job making sure my son can eat safely with the rest of the family!

    Walt Disney World Resort has an entire team dedicated to helping Guests with food allergies and other special diets get ready to dine while on vacation. Since you have multiple allergies that are outside of the "top eight" common food allergies, I definitely recommend that you contact the Special Diets Team by emailing them at Special.Diets@DisneyWorld.com. They will be able to give you specific information about the best way to accommodate your exact allergies during your trip. I recommend that you contact the Special Diets Team as soon as possible so they can help you make plans for your vacation with plenty of time to coordinate with the Chefs who will be cooking for you during your trip.

    In general, I have found that table service locations have larger kitchen spaces and have more options to help Guests who are accommodating food allergies. You definitely want to add your allergies to all of your dining reservations by calling (407) 939-1947. When you arrive at the restaurant, be sure to remind your server of your allergies and ask to speak to the Chef so you can work together to select a safe meal.

    Come back to see us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any other questions as you finalize your vacation plans! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
