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
  • Lactose or milk
  • Peanuts and tree nuts
  • Shellfish
  • Soy
  • Fish
  • Eggs
  • Corn

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

Guests are encouraged to discuss their dietary requirements with their server upon arrival at the location or, if desired, consult with a chef or Cast Member trained in special diets—before placing an order. We strive to use reasonable efforts in our food sourcing, preparation and handling procedures to avoid the introduction of the named allergen into your menu choices.

Please note that we do not have separate kitchens to prepare allergen-friendly items, or separate dining areas for Guests with allergies or intolerances. Thus, it is possible for an allergen to be introduced before the food is provided to us, or inadvertently during food preparation or handling.

Metabolic Disorders and Multiple Allergies
Guests with requests associated with the list below should contact Walt Disney World Resort Special Diets at Special.Diets@DisneyWorld.com—after they have booked all their dining arrangements for their visit and at least 14 days prior to their arrival:

  • Any allergy or intolerance not listed above under common food allergies
  • Phenylketonuria (PKU)
  • Metabolic disorders
  • A single guest with multiple allergies / intolerances or multiple Guests with allergies / intolerances within the same party

Our restaurants will do their best to accommodate your dietary requirements, but cannot guarantee that they will be able to meet all requests.

Participating Restaurants

Other Questions
For other questions related to food allergies and other special dietary needs and requests, contact Walt Disney World Resort Special Diets at Special.Diets@DisneyWorld.com.

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 during our sourcing, preparation and handling processes. However, it is ultimately up to the Guest to use his or her individual discretion to make an informed choice regarding whether to order any particular items.

Please note that Walt Disney Parks and Resorts cannot guarantee that allergens may not have been introduced during another stage of the food chain process, or even inadvertently during preparation. We do not have separate kitchens to prepare allergen-free items, or separate dining areas for Guests with allergies or intolerances.
