Special Dietary Requests

Walt Disney World Resort is committed to offering a wide range of culinary and dietary options for its Guests.

Delicious Alternatives

By substituting different ingredients and approaches, most Disney chefs, restaurants and quick-service locations can accommodate the following common food allergies:

  • Gluten or wheat
  • Eggs
  • Fish
  • Milk or lactose
  • Peanuts and tree nuts
  • Shellfish
  • Soy
  • Corn

Many Disney restaurants now offer allergy-friendly menus to address these food intolerances, and many are able to accommodate lifestyle requests as well—including low-fat, low-sodium, no-sugar-added and vegetarian options—often with no advance arrangements!

Guests with food allergies should discuss their dietary requirements with their server upon arrival at the restaurant. Guests also have the opportunity to consult with a chef or special diets-trained Cast Member if desired.

We strive to use reasonable efforts in our food sourcing, preparation and handling procedures to avoid the introduction of the named allergens into your menu choices. While we take steps to prevent cross-contact, we do not have separate allergy-friendly kitchens and are unable to guarantee that a menu item is completely free of allergens.

Please also note that our allergy-friendly offerings are reliant on supplier ingredient labels, and we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the contents of each food item. Allergen advisory statements (e.g., “ may contain") are not regulated and therefore not taken into consideration when developing allergy-friendly meals. It is ultimately up to your discretion to make an informed choice based upon their individual dietary needs.

Metabolic Disorders and Multiple Allergies
Guests with the following concerns:

  • Any allergy or intolerance not listed above under common food allergies
  • Phenylketonuria (PKU)
  • Metabolic disorders
  • A single Guest with 4 or more allergies/intolerances or multiple Guests with allergies/intolerances within the same party should contact Special.Diets@DisneyWorld.com after booking dining arrangements for their visit and at least 14 days prior to their arrival:

Our team will assist you in navigating the dining process. Be sure to communicate your dietary restrictions upon arrival at the restaurant. You will have the opportunity to speak with a chef or special diets-trained Cast Member if desired. While our restaurants will do their best to accommodate dietary requirements, we cannot guarantee that they will be able to meet all requests.

Making a Special Dietary Request

Our standard menu selections are available online, and allergy-friendly menus are available at many dining locations. When making reservations and arriving at your dining location, please follow these guidelines:

Reserving Online
When reserving a table online, please indicate all food allergies and intolerances at the time of booking.

Reserving by Phone
Please inform a Cast Member of your dietary requirements when making a dining reservation over the phone. To make a reservation, call (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463. Guests under 18 years of age must have parent or guardian permission to call.

At the Restaurant

After receiving your dietary request, we will use reasonable efforts to prevent the introduction of your allergen of concern into your food through close attention to sourcing, preparation and handling processes. However (as noted above), Walt Disney World Resort cannot guarantee that a menu item is completely free of any allergen. It is ultimately up to your individual discretion to make an informed choice regarding whether to order any particular item. Always inform the server of any restrictions upon arrival – even if you have spoken to a Guest experience service Cast Member while planning your vacation or have noted your restriction on your dining reservation.
