Greetings fellow Mouse Fans!
If, like many, you suffer from food sensitivites or allergies, the thought of a trip to Walt Disney World can be daunting. Will you be able to find anything to eat? Will your child with nut allergies be safe? The good news is that Disney is the best in the industry at handling these issues. They have a dedicated nutritionist who handles and trains staff on just this issue. The first step to making sure that everything goes smoothly is DOCUMENT!!! When making dining reservations, be sure to mention your allergies to the cast member assisting you. Then when you arrive at the restaurant, remind your server of your allergies. Often a chef will come out from the kitchen to discuss your needs and review the menu or buffet choices. You are your own best advocate so just keep reminding people each stepo of the way!
Tomorrow: Need more help? Guidebooks and contacts for food allergies.
Be well and make magic wherever you go!
