Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is always a blast that starts on select nights in September and continues through the big night — Halloween.

Food allergy friendly treats are available in a few locations around the Magic Kingdom.

Support our GoFundMe for a little boy removed from a plane due to an allergy

Posted on : 26-02-2016 | By : Allergy Free Mouse | In : Events, Misc, News


disney-cruise-palsWe were contacted by many of our readers about a little boy that was asked to leave a flight because he was allergic to dogs, and one happened to be on the flight. The plane returned from the runway to the terminal and, sadly, the other passengers applauded as he and his family exited the plan.

Here is the full story as reported by KTVB News in Washington.

As mentioned in the news story, Giovanni and his family traveled to Bellingham, Washington, because his father, George Alvarado, wanted to visit as part of his “bucket list” — he has terminal throat cancer. The reaction by Allegiant Airlines and the other passengers soured what was supposed to be a trip of fond memories.

We want to send this boy and his family on a Disney Cruise and we’re turning to our food allergy community to help, since we all know what it’s like to be excluded from activities, including flying on certain other airlines, due to allergies. We feel a cruise, also on George’s bucket list,  would help make up for the mental anguish caused by Allegiant and some of their customers. Plus, Giovanni can meet Pluto on a Disney Cruise, a dog he isn’t allergic to!

Help us make this happen. As you can imagine, time is of the essence. Please visit our GoFundMe page and make a donation. We can show Giovanni and his family that the allergy community is very supportive, when others may not be.

Mylan EpiPen on Location at Disney Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

Walt Disney World
Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

EpiPen® On Location is coming to Walt Disney World’s Epcot International Food and Wine Festival this fall, including live chef demonstrations on October 2 – 4.  This will be an exciting addition to the festival for those of us with food allergies in our families.  We don’t usually attend, since it’s a lot of food sampling that our daughter cannot have. But this year, we are beyond excited about the food allergy chef demonstrations.

The EpiPen® On Location program is a national call-to-action for those living with potentially life-threatening (severe) allergies and their caregivers to understand the importance of avoiding allergic triggers and having access to two epinephrine auto-injectors, such as EpiPen® (epinephrine injection) Auto-Injectors, at all times — whether at home, school, work or on vacation.

Ambassadors Nina Garcia, Chef Amanda Freitag and Auggie Maturo

EpiPen® On Location Program Ambassadors Chef Amanda Freitag and “Girl Meets World” actor Auggie Maturo will be at the festival sharing their stories and tips for food allergies.

More about the event can be found at the EpiPen On Location website.

Mylan recently announced a multi-year strategic alliance agreement with Walt Disney Parks and Resorts to help enhance access to EpiPen® Auto-Injectors and increase awareness of anaphylaxis, a life-threatening (severe) allergic reaction. EpiPens are now available at all Disney Parks and Disney Cruise Lines ships.

Please note, you will need admission to Epcot to attend the International Food and Wine Festival. Contact for tickets and accommodations and to learn more about how to visit Disney with your food allergy.

Merry Christmas!

Food allergy options for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

Charlotte and Duffy at Disney World during ChristmasWe just received this from Disney World’s Special Diets team, in preparation for our upcoming trip. This will be our second MVMCP and it’s doubtful that we’ll take advantage of these food allergy safe treats, because we’ll be having too much fun!

The party is such a blast, with all of the special events and low crowd conditions. We really had a great time two years ago, but there was so much to do that we couldn’t do it all. So, while we probably won’t be stopping for food allergy free treats, it’s so nice to know they are available.

Here’s the list. We’ve seen this on other websites, but decided to post a nice big, more legible copy. Click the thumbnail for a big version, about 2MB in size.

And free of the food allergens gluten, dairy, peanuts and tree nuts!

Also pictured are the ingredients:

  • Sugar & Spice cookie mix, free of gluten, peanuts, tree nuts and dairy.
  • Vanilla extract
  • Eggs
  • Earth Balance vegan buttery sticks
  • Cocoa
  • Food allergy free sprinkles, decorations and coloring.

The mix, by Sugar & Spice Market is one of the best gluten-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free, and dairy-free  mixes I’ve found. Some of their mixes are also corn free. They make cookie, brownie and pancake mixes. Based here in Atlanta, you can find them at:

Also, we had a great time at the Food Allergy Kids of Atlanta’s Halloween Party, so we included a couple of photos from that.
