Save this post for later

Fairest of the All, Snow White has invited us to a delightful evening under the fairy trees!

Step in the ‘Story Book’ as this delightful and fun Character Dining Experience. You’ll find classic ‘American’ Style Eats and lots of dinner time entertainment (arguably some of the best on property!)

Officially labeled “Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White”, it’s advertised as a meal the whole family will love.

Let’s check out the allergy options and see what was available, plus some details to determine if this is a good fit for your next vacation!

This is a Magic Kingdom Resort, See all the food allergy reviews for the resorts around the Magic Kingdom here

***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.

Quick Notes 

Location: Find this Character Meal at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort. You can access this resort by Driving, or taking a boat from the Magic Kingdom.

Price Over 60 per adult and over 35 per child (not including tip)

Characters  include Snow White, Grumpy, Dopey and the Evil Queen herself.

Food Allergy Menu 

Drinks

Their were a number of drinks to choose from! I grabbed the Into the Forest drink made with wildberry, lime juice, mint and sparkling water. It was very refreshing and not too sweet. Free from all common allergens.

Appetizers

The adult portion was the Wild Mushroom Bisque, Hunter’s Pie, and Wicked Shrimp Cocktail. I didn’t try any of them as their was a miscommunication regarding ingredients. (I needed the full sheet to check for hidden allergens, and not just a label that it was “soy friendly” etc).

Child’s Top 8 Allergen Friendly Appetizer was fruit and veggies. The modification was to just remove everything else only leaving the fruit and veggies.

Entrees

The accommodation for allergies here is to ‘just remove’ the allergens, as seen above in the appetizers.

The Adult entree is the Royal Prime Rib Roast with Horseradish Mashed Potatoes Carrots and AuJus. I modified no AuJus and subbed the potatoes for regular mashed potatoes.

The child’s entree was grilled chicken with mashed potatoes. The potatoes did contain dairy (no other allergens) and could be subbed out for potato wedges which are allergen free.

Desserts 

Desserts are the real winners here! These desserts are allergy friendly for the top 8 allergens.

Shown is the Gooseberry Pie, Chia Seed Pudding with Mango Topping and “Poisonn” Apple (which is really a brownie bite). These were modified to be top 8 allergen friendly (and I’m not sure why the allergy menu doesn’t reflect that as we had these back in 2020).

Plus there was the Hunter’s Gift to the Queen, which is brought out in a themed box. Traditionally their would be chocolates, but to avoid cross contamination we were brought enjoy life soft cookies on a clean plate. The server brought over the box to show us (which was so kind!)

Would you enjoy this option? And Do I Recommend it?

You would enjoy this if:

  • you or your party likes Snow White
  • you want a character meal with lots of theming
  • you’d like something that is well lit for pictures (if you go between 4-7pm)
  • desserts are important for you

I’d recommend this option! While it was very simple for the meals, and the appetizers are lacking, it was a very pretty and well themed meal. My daughter has not seen snow white, so she wasn’t impressed with the characters, but she did like to meet a princess.

I’d not recommend this option to those who have to travel far (only if you are staying here, or able to travel on a magic kingdom day). If you are coming from magic kingdom, plan for at least three hours, though four hours is a better estimate. If you’d prefer to stay inside Magic Kingdom, I’d recommend Be Our Guest.

Final Summary 

All in all, this is a great option for a Food Allergy Friendly Magic Kingdom day! It is also a great option if you are looking for more of those 1 to 1 allergy, versus, non allergy options so that people don’t feel left out when ordering with dietary restrictions.
