Planning a Disney Trip with a Special Diet: Group Rates and Disney Promos

We’ve been asked a lot lately about deals that’ll be going on the weekend of the Food Allergy and Celiac Convention, so today’s Friday Trip Planning post is dedicated to just that!

First, we’ve partnered with Destinations in Florida, who is offering Group Rates and room blocks especially for FACCWDW.

We highly recommend staying on site if you’re travelling in so you have easy access to the convention and the parks, free transportation, safe dining options with trained Disney chefs and kitchens, and, of course, that touch of extra magic. Really… the meals that Disney chefs will create you should be the biggest incentive!

Group rates are available, starting as low as $104.40+ tax at three different levels of resorts. The options include Disney’s Pop Century Resort (Value Resort); Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort (Moderate Resort and Host Resort for the convention); Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge (Deluxe Resort).

Booking with Destinations in Florida also gives you discounts on other perks, including park tickets. Contact them for a free quote and be sure to let them know that you are attending the Food Allergy & Celiac Convention for that extra magic.

Next, Disney is currently having a Free Dining promotion (we wrote about it here). You can get a free dining plan when you purchase a non-discounted 6-night/7-day Magic Your Way package (includes room and theme park tickets) at most of the Disney Resort hotels. The deal expires mid-September, so be sure to book before then. Destinations in Florida can help you with that, too. Note your arrival date does have to be November 20th — just to keep that in mind.

There’s also the chances you might get a personalized deal from Disney — straight to your inbox! If you create a free account, you might get a PIN code, generally with either Free Dining or a room discount attached. Odds might be in your favor, so go sign up!

And finally, we’ve launched our Personalized Trip Planning to ensure you have the most magical experience possible! Read more about that here.

Just like always, feel free to ask any and all questions by using our Contact Form, emailing us, or commenting below. We’re here to help!

Planning a Disney Trip with a Special Diet: Deluxe Resorts

We first dished out the details for planning your Disney trip while staying at value resorts. Then we covered the moderate resorts. And now, of course, it’s time for those deluxe resorts.


Unlike the Value and Moderate resorts, there are more than just five resorts to choose from. When it comes to the Deluxe, there’s eight: Animal Kingdom Lodge, Beach Club, BoardWalk Inn, Contemporary, Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Wilderness Lodge, and Yacht Club. You can likely tell from their names, but each one features pretty incredible themes.

Planning a Disney Trip with a Special Diet: Moderate Resorts

A couple of weeks ago, we gave you the details on planning your Disney trip and choosing from the value resorts. Moderate resorts are the next step up, and for most people, this is their stay of choice when Deluxe are out of reach and they want a few more perks than Value have to offer. walt-disney-world-trip-planning

Like Value Resorts, there are five Moderate Resorts to choose from at Walt Disney World Resort: Port Orleans Riverside, Port Orleans French Quarter, Coronado Springs, Caribbean Beach, and Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. Each of these have distinct themes, range in sizes, and have their own pros and cons. All offer complimentary wi-fi Internet and have mini-fridges (minus the campground). As we mentioned in our last resort post, fact sheets and details are available straight from the Walt Disney World planning site, but we want to offer our input, too—especially because some of our favourites are among these! Here’s the low down on what to know—especially when you have a Special Diet in tow! Continue reading
