Planning a Disney Trip with a Special Diet: Snacks (Part I)

elf_logo_registeredSnacking at Disney with a Special Diet is, if you can believe it, easy. So easy, in fact, that you don’t even have to pack along all of your own foods.

But it gets even better…Have you heard the news? We are so excited to have Enjoy Life Foods as our Magic Plus Platinum Sponsor for the Food Allergy and Celiac Convention! Just like us, their whole business is devoted to making folks with food allergies and celiac disease happy with good-for-you treats that taste incredible. All of their items are free of the eight most common allergens, gluten-free, and sesame and sulphite-free, too. What’s more,¬†everything is made in a dedicated plant and are certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization set in place by The Gluten Intolerance Group.

But we don’t just love having Enjoy Life on board because of their awesome goodies (though it surely is one of the reasons!). We love that their products are pretty much safe for everyone, and they’re readily available at Disney World, too!

We’d venture to guess that every Quick Service location houses Enjoy Life’s Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies in a two pack for an allergy-safe dessert option. Some have the Ricemilk Crunch bars, as well.

In addition, most Table Service have the cookies as a back-up when there aren’t other dessert options available. At the Table Service restaurants, the chefs generally stock a whole box in the back, meaning that the cookies often become an addition to nondairy ice cream, sorbet, and fruit to creating a full dessert option that is allergy-friendly. They often have ELF Sugar Crisp and Vanilla Honey Graham Crunchy Cookies on tap, too.

Throughout the parks, in addition to Quick Service, you can also find whole boxes available for sale at a variety of places. The Garden Kiosk in Animal Kingdom carries most of the ELF soft baked cookies, including the Double Chocolate Brownie and Snickerdoodle.

Sunshine Seasons in Epcot carries the whole boxes of the soft baked cookies and individual packages of the Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies. Looking for a candy bar? Boom Choco Boom Bars are always available too! They are the perfect grab and go items for a sweet treat while touring the parks.

And when you didn’t think your allergy-friendly pancakes could get better? Think again: those ELF chocolate chips (yep, completely dairy- and soy-free!) are often in the back, allowing for mini dots of melty goodness in each breakfast bite. Really… what could be better?

Stay tuned for upcoming posts and contests featuring our title sponsor. We’re so glad that Enjoy Life Foods will be a part of our event!

  1. I’m SO glad they continue to add more and more allergy friendly snacks. Our first year going with food allergies was 2011 and they had some, but it was limited. Disney often is one of the firsts to offer things that their customers need, then other places follow suit! Can’t wait to check it out this year during our trip!!

    • Great! We have so much more info coming on snacks soon, too. Let us know if you have any questions before your trip — we love to help!

  2. My favorite Enjoy Life treat are the Rice Milk Crunch Bars! I’ll need to find them in the park on my trip in May :) I think it’s funny how excited I am to find them, when really, I could just bring my own, haha.

    • We love them too! (The Dark Chocolate Bars are pretty amazing too!) It’s so awesome that we can find them in the parks – sure we could always bring them, but who could pass up getting a chocolate bar that’s safe in the parks! One of the many reasons we love Enjoy Life Foods!
