FAQ for Food Allergies at Disney World

While dining at Disney World is ‘easier’ there is still a lot to learn and a lot to plan!

I’d love to say you could just ‘wing it’ but let’s be honest, since the moment you got a symptom and a diagnosis, ‘winging it’ has been off the table.

Quick Serve Versus Table Service? What’s best for food allergies?

This is a fantastic question that depends on your allergens and comfort level. Typically, table service is the best option because you can speak with a chef and it isn’t as rushed. You CAN still eat at quick serve, but not all places have menus (find the ones that do here). Check out the food allergy guide for more details for planning your vacation!

Is every restaurant safe?

I mean technically- but we want the Disney World special! We want it to be stress free. Many options are better than others (and not all places can give you a full meal- especially some of the smaller quick serves which might have to turn you away)

What about the Disney Dining Plan?

When it comes back, I’ll be sure to review it!

Great question and there’s a lot to unpack here. There is only one right answer- what’s best for YOUR family! Check out this video where we discuss some of the basics and help you decide if the dining plan is right for your food allergy needs.

I have serious anxiety about traveling with Food Allergies- why is Disney World a good option?

You and me both family, you and me both! In fact, I started this blog because I was so anxious that I didn’t go on a once in a lifetime trip- and now that trip is not an option as my children’s only grandparent has passed away. I hope that my regret over letting food allergies rule my life can help you live your dreams.

So I’m here to encourage you. Stay and read and poke around. Check out the videos on youtube, read restaurant reviews and ask questions on Instagram. I will never tell you that it’s not scary– I sometimes get scared still. And that’s ok.

It’s also why I created these handy eGuides with the best places to go, snacks, desserts, secret menu items… it makes planning so much easier! See the eGuides updated for 2022

I will simply tell you that planning a vacation and spending time with your family is WORTH it. I trust you’ll make the right choice for making memories with your family.
