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.
