Disney is one of the Best Theme Park locations for Egg Free options! Unlike other locations that don’t have egg free bread, or having you ordering off the vegan menu, Disney World has egg free goodies and allergy menus!
You’ll find desserts, breads, treats, snacks and clear communication at Disney. All the things we need to have a safe and fun food allergy vacation.
Let’s look at some of the options below, and clear up the most common questions for an Egg Free Disney Vacation.
Are Mickey Pretzels Egg Free?
Yes! Mickey Pretzels do not have Egg currently. You can ask to see ingredients in person before ordering to confirm!

***As Always, please speak to a qualified restaurant employee when ordering food. In order to see the most accurate ingredients and risk assessment, you will need to confirm allergy safety in real-time.

Egg Free is actually Egg Friendly at Disney World
One of the things talked about in the Disney World Food Allergy FAQ, is that Disney has strict disclaimers in place.
Because of these strict disclaimers, Disney labels everything ‘Friendly’ and they are not always consistent.
So that means that we still need to do the whole allergy song and dance, ask about procedures, ask about brands, and ask how items are made. Disney does not include ‘may contain’ statements in their allergy menus, and they’ve been known to make mistakes with labeling.
I would highly recommend you talk to Disney Staff at every location and check ingredients to make sure there is no egg, or hidden egg, in the product. Ask about cross contact, shared fryers, and how it’s made. Disney Staff is great to talk to, and you’ll find some hidden menu items or unique modifications when you ask in person.
You should bring snacks just in case, and there’s some other things to consider packing for a safe allergy trip.
Three Great Restaurants to eat Egg Free at Disney World
While there are a lot of restaurants to choose from (and many that are really good for you!) there are some I would recommend over others and then ones I’d skip. For the current list of ones to skip, check the Restaurant Skip List.
I did not list any third party restaurants (they are officially called ‘Operating Participants‘) here, only those owned by Disney. While many third party locations have great allergy procedures in place, they vary by location and some are no better than your restaurant’s back home.
My top three favorite locations for lots of Egg Free options (including a dessert and bread) would be:
- Coral Reef at EPCOT
- Tony’s Town Square at Magic Kingdom
- 50’s Prime Time at Hollywood Studios
These locations are all table service locations, and table service locations do typically require a reservation and cost more. You can find great egg free options at Quick Serve Locations too!
For Egg Free Quick Serve, I recommend:
- Connections Cafe at EPCOT (OR for lunch only, Sunshine Seasons. Get the mousse dessert!!)
- Peco Bills at Magic Kingdom
- Pizzafari at Animal Kingdom
There are a lot more options than that, and many can find something to share with you. Please don’t think you can *only* go to those locations listed above- those are just my favorites after reviewing and checking procedures on the restaurants at Disney World. You can click around on Disney’s Site, as many of the options have allergy menus (but not all!)
Plant Based Options- are they Egg Free?
Disney came out with a Plant Based menu. The plant based menu is supposed to be made without Dairy (Milk), Egg, Meat, and Honey. So one would assume that all items marked with a plant based symbol would be Egg-Free.
But, there have been some accidents with Plant Based options, and it’s still in your best interest to check ingredients to confirm if it is made without eggs.
Also note that Plant Based doesn’t mean Free From, so these items could still be produced in a shared oven or facility with egg (or made without allergy procedures and have significant cross contact!) Here’s a recent example of an items being labeled plant based and then having allergens in it.
Mobile Order with Egg Allergy
In 2020, Disney World introduced Mobile Order, and shortly after brought Allergy Mobile Order to the table.
It’s a nifty addition, BUT, it is not a very safe addition for many with an Egg Allergy.
Mobile order is great for a minor restriction, but not for moderate or severe allergies. There’s a few reasons why it’s not so good. For one, you can only choose one allergen, which means it’s not an option for people with multiple food allergies. For two, the allergy menus can sometimes be wrong (about 1 out of every 30 times is my experience) and you need to double check ingredients to be sure. For three, Mobile Ordering does not take into account ‘may contain’ or ‘shared facility’ statements. If you aren’t comfortable with those, please speak with someone to check products.
You can mobile order safely by selecting what you’d like, and then asking to speak to ‘someone’ (generally a coordinator) before placing your order! Then when your order is ready, just double confirm that it’s for your allergy.
I’m not saying Don’t Mobile Order, but I am saying that it’s a helpful tool once you understand the limitations and make the best decision for you and your family. See this post for a full guide for Mobile ordering with Allergies, including images, examples and more things to look out for.
Character Meals with an Egg Allergy
You can still eat at Character Meals with an Egg Allergy.
While many of the below options are Buffet Style, You can still eat safely at a buffet at Disney World. I like to ask for the Allergy Menu, and speak to a Chef to confirm items, then get the items from the back to avoid Cross Contact. You can see specifics for Disney Buffets with Allergies here including photos and what to say to the Chef.
Each of the Restaurants has an allergy menu (and you can see all the egg free reviews and allergy menus here), and then you talk to a Chef or Manager about the best options for you. I do recommend getting all items prepared by the Chef to avoid cross contact.
But not all Character Meals are worth it, and I don’t recommend a few of them for Soy Allergies. Tusker House lunch and dinner was hard to navigate, and Cape May Cafe isn’t at the top of the list either.
Popular Egg Free Snacks at Disney World
There are a lot of snacks at Disney World, and some could argue that the main point of a Disney vacation is the ride, entertainment and fun eats!
If you want a full list of snacks for quick planning (or quick change of plans on vacation!) grab the Touring Plan with Snack Guide.
At Disney World, these are the most popular Egg Free Snacks.
- Dole Whips
- Mickey Waffles
- Mickey Premium Bars
- Themed Animal Crackers
You’ll want to plan on skipping the confectionary items, as those have a lot of cross contact. See what I mean by Cross Contact in the Bakery items here.
