Review: Coral Reef at Epcot Food Allergy Options (gf, df, sf, ef, nut free)

Save this post for later

EPCOT has a GIANT aquarium that they use for education, for the Finding Nemo ride and as a beautiful viewing spot inside Coral Reef Restaurant. 

I actually love how this was set up to be used for so many things, as the kids and I enjoyed the view of the sea life (and a few scuba divers) during our meals! This was our second time getting a spot up super close to the tank and I highly recommend asking about it when they seat you!

We’ve been to Coral Reef multiple times over the years.

Here’s a note on the NEW 2022 menu update, which added four items!

There’s a number of options at EPCOT for our free-from allergy family, you can see the full guide to EPCOT with food allergies here. Let’s look at the Coral reef lunch and dinner food allergy review.

***As Always, this is my personal experience. You should check with Restaurant Staff to see if these items are available for You and Your food needs.


Here’s a look at the Allergy Friendly Options available at Coral Reef Restaurant 

We have eaten here at least 5 times in the last two years, and this is a top recommended option at Walt Disney World and in EPCOT! 

For starters we were served Bloomfield Farms allergy friendly rolls. These rolls are standard across property now, and are free from the top 8 allergens. 

Oven Roasted Citrus-marinated Half Chicken with seasonal veggies is pictured (but we’ve also enjoyed the Mahi Mahi modified to fit our allergens!)  

Jr reef steak with double rice which is free from all top allergens. 

Kid’s Grilled Fish of the Day with Fruit contains fish, but otherwise allergy friendly. 

The chocolate wave is a speciality dessert here. It’s a chocolate lava cake with raspberry gelato. Contains dairy and soy lethicin only and egg. Free from gluten, tn/pn, fish and shellfish and sesame. 

They also offer another plant based option that contains alcohol. And Mango Sorbet (the standard allergy friendly dessert found around the parks!) 

Overall this is a great low key option with easier to find reservations and plenty of options (plus a great view!) to add to your day at EPCOT! Prefer a quick serve? There’s one within walking distance of Coral Reef with options for every allergy, called Sunshine Seasons!

circa 2016… where does the time go?
