    I have a two yr. old that has many food allergies. I just found out that you can order special foods. My ? is what are the best places to eat at with these food allergies at disney world?

    Hi Renee!  The chefs at Walt Disney World are wonderful to work with when dining at the restaurants.  When making your reservations make sure you let the Disney cast member know specifically what the allergies are for your child.  They will note this in the computer.  When you reach the restaurant make sure you start by telling your wait staff of the allergies.  The chef will then come to the table to discuss options for you that might not be on the regular menu.  This is now standard for anyone with dietary needs.  If you are dining at a quick service location and not sure about some ingredients ask to see the manager and look through the binder that should describe all menu choices for that location.

    When I dine with guests who have severe and very specific allergies I will tend to avoid some of the EPCOT World Showcase locations as language issues can often deter good communication about your needs.
