    I am traveling with my family to Walt Disney World this summer. My son has food allergies. I want him to experience "Disney dining", but how do I get around his allergies?

    Hi there Nilda!

    Disney is exceptional at handling special dietary needs.  Each quick dining restaurant has an ingredient list for all of the foods they serve.  Please ask to see it, and don't hesitate to let a Castmember know your concerns.  They are there to help you.

    Also, if you are making advanced dining reservations, please let the Castmember you are speaking with aware of the food allergies.  When you get to the restaurant let the Castmember checking you in know about the allergies also.  Most times the chef will come out to discuss the meal with you. 

    You can also email Disney's food experts at specialdiets@disneyworld.com.  Let them know your concerns in detail and they will help you by giving you more information and solutions.

    I hope this information is helpful to you.  Have a magical vacation and thanks for visiting the Moms Panel!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
