So does Disney World have gluten free food?? YES!! Disney World has special allergy menus to accomodate a wide range of food intolerances, including gluten free, dairy free, egg free, nut free, and more! They make a huge effort to provide every guest with a magical experience, so that even those with severe allergies like celiac disease can enjoy delicious food. Plus, they’re experienced with avoiding cross contamination, which is hugely important for those with serious allergies.
How do I order my food? When you arrive at a quick service restaurant in Disney World, you should request the allergy friendly menu. When you order, be sure to specify that you are ordering from the allergy friendly menu and tell them which allergen you’re avoiding. The cashier will stamp your receipt with a red allergy warning. Your food will be prepared in a separate area of the kitchen (including dedicated fryers if fried items are listed on the allergy friendly menu) and a manager will oversee the preparations. When you order from the allergy friendly menu, it does usually take longer for the food to come out since everything is made fresh– so be patient! 😉 When the food is ready, a manager will deliver the order to you and ensure that it’s correct.
