One of the newest places to get a bite to eat is the Woody’s LunchBox in Toy Story Land. While this isn’t new new (it’s been open a few years) it’s still new enough that there is some confusion over what is safe and what isn’t.
Disney has been steadily adding lands and parks to the mix- including a new table service place coming in 2020 to Toy Story Land. I’ll keep you updated on opening and the menu.
So now, Let’s take a look at the menu options and some food options for those with food allergies! If you’re new here, I highly recommend learning more about Disney Food Allergy Strategies for ultimate vacation success.
Where’s it located
Woody’s lunch box is located in Toy Story land in Hollywood studios. It’s towards the back of the park, and it connects with the Star Wars Area, Galaxies Edge.
Hollywood Studios isn’t my favorite place for eating confidently with food allergies, but it does have some pretty decent options.
This eating space (since it’s ALL outdoors) is very easy to access. Wide walkways, lots of outdoor seating, and a nice low counter for grabbing food. There are plenty of fans and lots of shade and umbrellas but it does still get hot being outside. Bathrooms are very close by, on the other side of the building and there is a companion restroom there- it’s very large and a favorite when we are in that area of the park.
What’s Special There?
Oh yeah- Disney made sure to have some special things at Woody’s Lunch Box. They’ve introduced a few things (especially since it’s one of the only places to grab a full breakfast)
The first thing we’re going to talk about is the smores sandwich.
Hello sugar on a bun! and let me say, it’s totally worth it. I’ve got all the pics below.
The other thing we’ll talk more about below is the breakfast bowl. This was the PERFECT food for our kids for breakfast, very similar to what we feed them at home.
Our Review and what we ate
So we’ve eaten here before but I’m bad about taking pictures- BUT I do have these pics of breakfast 😍
We had a yogurt with fruit cup minus the granola, a turkey and egg sandwich on safe bread, the smores sandwich on safe bread minus a coating that contained soy and the breakfast bowl minus the gravy.
Ordering Food and The Allergy Menus
So… I’m kinda sad because they are really behind the times when it comes to allergy menus. They simply don’t have one.
It’s why I’ve created this guide that tells you what you need to know for a successful food allergy friendly vacation. From who to talk to, what to expect (with pictures!) and where to go so you have the most magical (and SAFE!) vacation to Disney World.
Normally I just peep the mobile ordering options and see what they have listed for the allergen menu but they don’t have that either!
They do have vegan options though (and you can mobile order) so if you feel comfortable and just avoid dairy, take that into consideration.
Ok, so here’s how it went down- waiting in line(no allergen menu) and then spoke to a chef, gave her the rundown of our various allergies and ordered individual items for each person.
The Chef had an amazing amount of ‘play’ when it came to food options. This is really a fun place for us to eat because of how easy it is to take out soy, dairy, and gluten from the ingredients!
How do I mobile order for allergies?
The only one I’ve seen successfully do it is for dairy- but I also recommend using your best judgment.

We LOVE woody’s lunch box! It’s a cute place to eat, even though there’s only a little bit of shade. It’s got lots of great photo opportunities and there’s so much activity!
The drummers come out and walk around (i think we saw them three times on our last meal) and the cast members here do a great job at pretending everyone is a ‘toy’.
This is a must do if you can spend some time talking to the chef (and have a backup option!) in case they don’t have a safe option.
