    Travelling with someone with CKD stage 4. It seems like Disney can't provide nutritional data and the only way then to accommodate would really be elimination of various foods. Anyone have experience with this, specifically a CKD patient?

    Hi Marcus, 

    Thank you for bringing your very important question to planDisney! I understand that traveling to Walt Disney World with a restrictive diet may seem daunting, however, Walt Disney World Resort has taken steps to accommodate a variety of dietary needs. 

    Marcus, several dietary restrictions can be accommodated without making advance arrangements. These include smaller portions, low-carbohydrate, low-fat, low-sodium, no-added-sugar, and plant-based options. I suggest making your advance dining reservations when your booking window opens and when you arrive at the dining location, notify the Cast Member at the host stand that a member of your party has special dietary requests. You can even ask to speak to a chef or a special-diets-trained Cast Member at the restaurant who can help guide your friend through the menu options that fit their needs. The option to speak to a special-diets trained Cast Member is also available before ordering at a Quick Service dining location! There may be an additional wait when requesting to speak with a chef or special-diets-trained Cast Member. 

    If your friend’s diet is more restrictive than those I listed above, you are welcome to reach out to the Special Diets Team before your visit. You can send an e-mail no sooner than 14 days prior to your visit to and request a Special Dietary Request form. The Special Diets Team will then contact you to assist you with your dining options. 

    I hope this helps ease your concerns, Marcus. If you have any further planning questions, come visit me again at planDisney! 

    Enjoy your magical vacation,
