    Our 15 year old son is a tree nut allergy person. We will be staying at the Beach Club in late June 2017 and eating at Cape May Buffet for dinner as well as other restaurants at WDW during our stay. Should I tell Disney Dining he has an allergy in advance

    Hi, Diane!

    Staying at Disney's Beach Club in June sounds amazing. You may never want to leave Stormalong Bay pool with its lazy river, sand bottom, and fun volleyball game!

    Regardless of where you are dining, always let your server know about any food allergies. They will be happy to get you lists of ingredients as well as speak to the chef. I have seen chefs walk guests through buffet lines to discuss what will be appropriate with specific dietary needs, as well as go though menu items to ensure a pleasant dining experience.

    Prior to your arrival, you may want to send an email to Special.Diets@disneyworld.com. List the restaurants you plan to go to, food allergies, along with your email address and phone number so they can get in contact with you. You can also make a note on your dining reservations that a guest at your table has an allergy. If you already made your Dining Reservations, call a friendly Cast Member at (407)WDW-DINE and have your allergy information added.

    Enjoy your stay at the beautiful Beach Club, and make sure to say "HI" to Mickey Mouse for me when you are in the theme parks!
