One of the reasons I initially wanted to take the kids to Disney World was I had heard they accommodate food allergies. This is always a huge stress for me when we travel.
Disney has food allergy policies in place that really keep there guests safe and relieve some of the stress. I made restaurant reservations on Disney's website. When making the reservation I was asked to check off which allergies are in my party. Then I was told to contact Special.Diets@DisneyWorld.com and they sent me forms to fill out. Those forms were sent to each restaurant. They then sent a confirming email and asked that when we got to restaurant to mention the allergies once again and the chef will come out and talk to us. Here is the lowdown on our experience.
The first full day of our vacation we decompressed at the hotel pool and then headed over to Downtown Disney for a late lunch and a little shopping. We had a reservation at The Rainforest Cafe
We informed our server, Shawn, that we had two kids at our table with food allergies. He send the chef out.
One of the main reasons I wanted to check out Downtown Disney was Babycakes NYC. This wonderful bakery is peanut and tree nut free, egg-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, sesame seed-free.
Sean could pick whatever he wanted...
The first day in the parks we went to lunch in Magic Kingdom at The Plaza Restaurant.

All-in-all we had great experiences eating in Disney World. Sean and Nolan eat like kings!
I received two complimentary Disney World Park Hopper passes to facilitate my reviews.
