Dining with food allergies at Carnation Cafe in Disneyland

This guest review was provided by Sherry, who blogs at Mission Mama.

Traveling with food allergies is at the very least a challenge but at the very most completely dangerous. Most places are not careful enough with cross contamination or diligence in ingredient literacy. I feel a little like I’m playing Russian Roulette. With multiple food allergies, several autoimmune disorders and  IBS, I was very nervous before our trip.

At Disney I had little to be concerned about. The quality of care taken to prevent cross contamination and label misreading is extraordinary. Though I wish they would use more modern dairy and egg substitutions for desserts, there were a few food highlights I would like to mention. If you are vegan and/or gluten free, you must try the Chef’s Vegan Burger with avocado (instead of mayo) on a lettuce “bun” at Carnation Cafe in Disneyland.  Wow!!!!! It was so amazing I asked the chef for the recipe. To my knowledge it is the only bean burger in Disney. But it isn’t just any bean burger, it is incredible! And yes it is fully gluten free. It’s the chief’s own special recipe. It was so delicious that I asked the chief for the recipe, and he really sent it to me! Apparently you can ask for any recipe at Disney and they will actually send it to you.

Sherry outside of Carnation Cafe - dining with food allergiesIf you have an allergy to gluten, eggs and dairy, go ahead and eat the raspberry sorbet once. After that try the kettle corn, the Dole Whip (Disneyland) and BYOC (bring your own chocolate). I wrote a post on my complete vegan/gluten free experience at Disneyland. Click here to check it out.

I want to thank Liz for this website. I like the collection of Disney experiences represented here.

I had the vegan burger last Saturday and it was amazing. It didn't occur to me that the chef would hand out his recipes. Do you still have it and could you post it?

I'm going to Disneyland in August and have been so worried about finding food as I'm allergic to dairy and eggs and some nuts. This post has been incredibly helpful! Thank you!
