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 their is some confusion over what is safe and what isn’t.
Let’s take a look at the menu and some food options for those with allergies!
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.
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.
Precautions and Eating with Allergies at Disney World
For one, when you reserve dining, make sure to list your allergies (they don’t have options for all, so pick what you can!) Then CLARIFY at check in that you have allergies, get an allergen menu and ask to speak to a chef or manager.
Please consider talking to a manager or chef- especially if you have more than one allergy and ESPECIALLY if you have a cashier that might seem like they don’t know what they are doing.
As far as the kitchens, Disney has dedicated allergy kitchens and we know that they follow FARE guidelines. If they have a risk of CC they tell you.
For me, the times I’ve had exposure was when the cashier/server didn’t understand/didn’t properly list the allergies/gave me incorrect information. In their defense, they aren’t necessarily trained in allergies- so talk to a chef or manager if you are concerned.
You know those gut feelings that something isn’t right. Speak up! They have never (ok once at a quick serve place did a cashier give me grief) given me any problems.
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.
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 judgement. Here’s a screenshot of the mobile order options.
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’. If the wait lines weren’t so horrendous we would be back more!
