 Allergy friendly

Beginning April 14th Disney World and Disneyland resorts will have allergy-friendly menus at around 120 quick service and table service locations.

“Over the years, the number of guests with food allergies and intolerances has continued to grow. In 2013 alone, our cast members assisted with more than 650,000 special dietary requests. These new allergy menus are another way in which we can provide high-quality, safe and more accessible alternatives, and the best possible dining experience for guests with specific dietary needs,” says Gary Jones, chef and culinary dietary specialist for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.

The new menus will give the allergen content for each item. Which will make life a lot easier for those who have dietary restrictions.  You can pick from appetizers (where applicable), entrées, side items, desserts and kids’ meals, and focuses on the most common allergens which are, gluten/wheat, milk, peanut, tree nut and fish.

Don’t worry you will still be able to speak directly to the chef, or a special diets trained CM, if you wish to do so. Disney wants you to still communicate special dietary needs to the restaurant cast members, because this lets them help you even more and take extra steps to prevent a possible allergic reaction.

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts is the recipient of a FARE (Food Allergy Research and Education) Award for their dedication to providing an safe allergy free dining experience for families and their chefs have been recognized for their commitment to food allergy awareness, education and management.

The new menus will debut at signature restaurants first and then they will come to other table service and quick service locations continuing through September 2015.

  1. Linda, I think the sample menu is saying “this” particular item is ideal for those that have xyz-allergy. Logically, an artisanal cheese tray would not have any gluten, egg nor shellfish ingredients, so it is ideal for those who have gluten/wheat, egg, and fish/shellfish allergies. But, yes, I can see how it is confusing. Knowing how Disney operates, I’m assuming they are trying to stay positive by NOT saying “eat this and you will have an allergic reaction” nor confuse their guests any more than necessary with abbreviations. Personally, I have been to many places that state a certain dish is gluten free…yeah, but it’s chock full of soy. I don’t eat either gluten or soy. So, for me, Disney’s listings would make it easier for me to distinguish the gluten AND soy free dishes. Like anything else Disney, they’ll adjust it as more and more guests utilize the new feature and make their complaints/suggestions…

  2. I’m finding the wording on the sample menu a little confusing… if it says “For gluten/wheat allergies,” does that mean the menu item is safe for people with gluten/wheat sensitivities or is it an alert, saying that this item has gluten/wheat in it? Why not just label the foods GF for gluten-free, or DF for dairy free, etc.? Warning people of possible life-threatening allergens should be as clear as possible, not subject to interpretation.
