Dining With Allergies at Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World Discounts Eating out on vacation can be very difficult for someone with food allergies or dietary restrictions. Walt Disney World has developed a system that eliminates many of these issues and concerns, leaving many families to say it's the only place they feel comfortable going on vacation, knowing that their needs are going to be taken care of by the restaurants. Table service restaurants allow you to indicate in advance the type of foods that must be avoided, and will often have a chef come talk to you about what is safe. Quick service restaurants also have the information available for you. In addition to these options, there is an entire department that can answer questions about special diets in advance of your vacation, and with enough notice they can go above and beyond in taking care of your needs.
