Planning a Disney Trip with a Special Diet: an overview

For many guests with special diets, planning a vacation–of any kind!–can be stressful. And traveling somewhere with plenty of food options, such as Walt Disney World,  can seem daunting with a special diet in tow.

Because of this, we’re constructing a series of planning tips for folks who are heading in for the first time with a special diet. We understand that guests might wonder what they will be able to eat and if the food will be safe, particularly those guests with Celiac disease, gluten intolerance, food allergies and food sensitivities. I mean, who wants to experience cross contamination? We know it can have debilitating results and, let’s be honest, spending your vacation sick (or having a sick family member) is not what a vacation is all about.

But here’s the thing:  travelers to the Walt Disney World Resort don’t need to worry. Not only is Disney is well-known in the special diets industry for providing excellent accommodations and gold-standard safety measures to those with specific dietary needs (really!), chefs and all food staff members go under rigorous training to make sure your trip is superbly magical. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be posting the must-knows for safely dining at Disney. Here’s what to expect:

  1. I am loving all your info. We travel to Disney every year because of the amazing way they feed our 11 year daughter with celiac. It is a true vacation for her and us! Where o where is that sushi roll from? I know my daughter would LOVE that.

    • We love Disney too and love that we can eat safely there (both of us eat like champs whenever we are there!). The sushi in this photo is from Ohana. It’s a vegan/vegetarian version with gluten free soy sauce :) You can also get sushi at Kona Cafe, California Grill and several other locations that are gluten free friendly. Just make sure to check with a chef when you check in to any location to make sure it’s safe. There are a few locations that use a seasoning packet that is not gluten free! Enjoy! :)
