    My toddler has recently been diagnosed with a dairy allergy, is there a way to filter menu items at Disneyland that are (or can be made) dairy-free? We have a trip coming up and I would like to compile a list of places that are safe for her to eat.

    Greetings, Jennifer! We're always so happy when Guests stop by with their vacation planning questions, and it will be an absolute pleasure to help you with yours today!

    I bet you are counting the days until your upcoming trip to the Disneyland Resort. It'll be here before you know it! I can certainly appreciate how important it is to you to have a comprehensive set of information as you prepare your dining plans ahead of this visit. My best recommendation is to start by reviewing the Food Allergies and Special Dietary Requests page as a helpful resource guide.

    Then, depending on the type of dining location you are choosing, I have a few suggestions for you. For select Quick Service restaurants, you will find allergy-friendly sections of their menus by scrolling to the bottom where you'll see items designated as "Milk Allergy-Friendly." While I am not aware of a current mechanism to sort by this feature, you can filter by the Quick Service designation and then select the dining locations of interest in order to view their menus. 

    If you are interested in reserving a Table Service restaurant, you can filter by "Reservations Accepted" and then follow the prompts to search for your preferred date and time and secure your reservation. You will see the option to enter information on any food allergies or special dietary requests in your party, which will share this information with the culinary team. Then, once you arrive at the restaurant, you can let the host know that you will need an allergy-friendly menu or request a chance to speak with a chef or one of the special diets-trained Cast Member who can provide further assistance! They are really wonderful to work with and will make every effort to make your dining experience fun, flavorful, and worry-free!

    Since you mentioned traveling with a little one, Jennifer, I wanted to mention another resource that has been so helpful to me when traveling with my own kids at the infant-toddler stages. The Baby Care Centers, located in both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park offer clean, quiet, air-conditioned spaces to fuel up with snacks, change diapers or let your little one use the toddler-sized toilets. Sometimes we would go there simply to decompress from the inevitable overstimulation that happens during the day! 

    I hope this is a useful set of recommendations, Jennifer. I know you and your Tiny Dreamer are going to have the best time together on your next adventure to the Disneyland Resort. There is nothing like seeing their face light up with pure magic at the 'Happiest Place on Earth!' Don't miss out on visiting the newly re-imagined Mickey's Toontown - it is the perfect place to play and make precious memories with your family. If we can help with anything else in the meanwhile, please call on us again, here at planDisney!

    Wishing you Wondrous Journeys,
