Travel back in time and space to explore the land of the Dinosaurs at T-REX… and chomp on some allergy-friendly eats!
Now, I know some people think this place is cheesy as hell (and it kinda is), but we love it! There’s lights and sounds and moving dinosaurs. Perfect for the paleontologist at heart.
This restaurant is tucked into Disney Springs. It’s hard to miss though, as it’s adorned with a giant T-REX skeleton!
Some important things to note–this is not owned by Disney, so their allergy procedures are a little different. And for those of you wondering about other options, check out the Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Food Allergies at Disney World!
It was a great meal, though! Let’s talk about what to expect and what you can eat if you dine here!

Allergy Friendly Options: What to Expect at T-REX
First things first, a Chef came out to meet us and get some details on our allergens.
There is NO dedicated fryer and it is a soy based oil.
Next up–no plant based cheese (but they do have Beyond Burgers!) Also, the allergy-friendly and gluten-free bun has egg!
Peanut and treenut allergies are very easy to accommodate here.
And they use an olive oil for cooking.
I highly recommend checking out the Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Food Allergies at Disney World, so you can get the full scoop on planning and procedures for your trip to Disney World!
What we ate at T-REX that was allergy friendly!
Gluten Free was the salmon with rice (has dairy) and veggies.
The burger was gluten, dairy and soy free with an allergy friendly bun (has egg!) and potato chips (because there’s no dedicated fryer).
We chose the grilled chicken as our Top 8 option with fruit and veggies (cooked in olive oil!)
The food was delicious and we loved it! Great service and great communication.
T-REX Allergy Friendly Eats and Menu
Since T-REX is not owned by Disney, they have different procedures. There is no allergy friendly menu. I did ask the chef for some common options which he listed below.
Safe options include:
- Grilled chicken
- Potato chips
- Fries (shared fryer)
Overall, it’s very friendly for peanut and treenut allergies. Just be sure to use olive oil!
