Traveling with Peanut Allergy – Going to Disney

Well our trip to Canada was successful and our daughter was protected thanks to my family’s help. My mom found lots of peanut-free food items and we took mac and cheese when we went out to a restaurant to eat since they could not guarantee that it was peanut-free. We flew on Northwest which does not serve peanuts but their snacks might have peanut in them. We packed plenty of snacks for the kids and had a good trip.

Next we plan our trip to Disney World. They have a great web site that covers food allergies and have staff on hand for questions. I will be posting soon about preparations for dining at Disney as well as packing snacks.

Here’s the link for Disney travel tips for food allergies.

All Walt Disney World* Resort Table Service Restaurants that accept reservations can accommodate most food allergies and food intolerances (such as gluten or wheat, shellfish, soy, lactose or milk, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, or eggs) if requested at least 72 hours in advance by calling (407) 939-3463*.

Process for making a special dietary request for table service locations:

* Call the Disney’s Dining Reservation Center at 407-WDW-DINE or

(407) 939-3463*.

* Indicate to the Cast Member at Disney’s Dining Reservation

Center your special dietary requests.

* Know that your special dietary request will be noted by the Cast

Member on your reservation.

* Write down the dining location phone number(s) that the Cast

Member provides you, as well as your reservation number and the day and time of your reservation.

* Contact your dining location at least 72 hours in advance to

discuss your special dietary request with the chef, manager or food and beverage representative.

* Please feel welcome to speak to the chef or manager on duty when

you arrive at your dining location.

BRINGING SNACKS INTO PARKS: As an exception to standard policy, guests who have specific food allergies are permitted to bring their own small snack items with them into the theme parks.
