New Allergy Friendly Menus Being Tested at Walt Disney World

Good news for Guests dining in Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts with Special Dietary Requests! Disney is continuing to make grounds for a new quicker, simple and efficient experience for Guests dining at Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts with special food allergy requirements.

Starting next month, a few select Disney Dining locations will be testing new allergy friendly menus to help eliminate the need for a chef to visit the table during your dining experience, ultimately cutting wait times and creating a quicker and more relaxing experience for Guests with special dietary requirements dining at Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts.

Disney’s Polynesian Resort:

  1. We visited Disney 2x so far with our 9 year old daughter who has a food allergy. Each time the chef would come out and talk to my daughter it makes her feel like a “princess” and we are able to relax and enjoy our meal knowing the chef is taken care of her allergy personally. It’s just that little extra something that sets Disney apart from any other place. Having the chef come out and talk to her about her allergy makes her feel like her allergy isn’t a problem and they are happy to accommodate her. Disney just gets it right it’s one of the reasons we will back again

  2. I would prefer to wait and see a chef as well as waiting for the food to be cooked. Cross contamination is too big of an issue in the way food is served at over the counter service areas. We have been to disney 6 times and have found that the one on one chef attention is a great experience. Some of the hotels like Pop Century have amazing Chef’s that make my daughter feel like a princess.

  3. I like this idea. I prefer to eat gluten free but I do not have allergies so I feel that this will be a great option for me! My mom on the other hand has severe sensitivities to gluten and I think she would still prefer to have a chef come out to make absolutely positive there are no glutens in her meal.

  4. It sounds like a good idea to make things more efficient, but as a mom of a child with sever food allergies I think I would still prefer to have a more personal approach with speaking with a chef at our table.
