Galaxy's Edge Black Spire OutpostWhile we don’t yet have information about food allergies for the Galaxy Edge dining experiences, we are getting a sneak peek from our friends at Galactic Mouse about the types of food we’ll find in Black Spire Outpost. We expect, after the fantastic allergy-friendly options created for Pandora’s Satu’li Canteen, there will be similar options at the locations listed below.

From GalacticMouse.com:

Galaxy's Edge Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo Smoked Kaadu RibsDocking Bay 7 Food and Cargo: We all have to eat, right? Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs has traveled throughout the galaxy following his longtime gig as the chef at Maz Kanata’s castle on Takodana, surviving the attach of First Order. Now he brings exotic flavors and unusual dishes to his traveling diner “Tuggs’ Grub.”

Galaxy's Edge Docking Bay 7 food and cargo - vegetarian meatloafA sampling of what you will find at Tuggs’ Grub, include the Ithorian Garden Loaf, a plant-based “meatloaf” that comes served with roasted vegetable mash, seasonal vegetables, and mushroom sauce. Another delicious option is the Smoked Kaadu Ribs, similar to country sticky pork ribs. They are accompanied by a unique blueberry corn muffin and cabbage slaw.

Galaxy's Edge Ronto RoastersRonto Roasters – This one features a unique twist, as a recycled podracing engine fires up a spit of exotic meats, meticulously turned by a former smelter droid, 8D-J8. Can’t wait to try that one!

Kat Saka’s Kettle – This one is a street market stalls, where the grain vendor sells the ever-popular Outpost Mix, which is a blend of sweet, savory and spicy popcorn.

Milk Stand – Another street market stall to get your farm-fresh blue milk or green milk, direct from Bubo Wamba Family Farms. Mmm, sounds delish. (of course, those with dairy allergies will skip this one entirely, unless the offer some dairy-free choices)

As you can see, no food allergy information, yet. We’ll pass it along as soon as we get it, likely in June or July, when we visit Disneyland’s Galaxy’s Edge. Read the latest Disney Star Wars news at Galactic Mouse.

Satu’li Canteen with dairy, peanut and tree nut allergies

Pandora at Animal KingdomThe Disney Culinary Imagineers did an amazing job putting together a menu with many delicious and unique allergen-free meals.  First, it’s a bit different from most other quick service locations, which is probably due to its Asian influences. First, you select your protein, like chicken, beef, tofu or shrimp. The chicken and beef are wood-grilled at a station visible upon entering the canteen. The tofu is chili-spiced and fried. Next, you select a base, such as rice or noodles, then you pick a sauce.  They also have a list of combinations to make ordering easy. See the menu for the full list.

Our favorite is the chicken, rice and bean sauce, which is more of a mildly spicy vinaigrette sauce. It’s delicious and we always ask for extra. This option is straight off the menu and is free of dairy, peanut and tree nut. However, we still specify our allergies when ordering.  They do have an allergy menu, of course. However, after discovering this fantastic combination, we only consult it to make sure nothing has changed. You may notice on the allergy-friendly menu, most of the options are the same across allergen categories, except for fish/shellfish and soy.

As a Disney World Passholder, we have the luxury of entering a park just for a meal. On this last trip to Disney World, we made the trip on the fabulous Disney Transportation System bus all the way to Animal Kingdom just for lunch at Satu’li Canteen. It is that good. Of course, we also stopped at Tamu Tamu for a Dole Whip.

See the full menu here on the Disney website.

Our old friend is back at Disney!

We first met Chef Ricardo back in 2013 at The Pepper Market in Disney’s Coronado Springs resort. Later, as many chefs do, he moved on, landing at Cabana Bay Resort (with Chef Paul and other former Disney Chefs) and continued to take excellent care of us and others with food allergies.

Well, look who we ran into at Disney’s Grand Floridian resort! He works in the kitchen that serves 1900 Park Fare, The Grand Floridian Cafe and Gasparilla Island Grill. Stop by either and, if you ask for the chef, you might find Chef Ricardo, who will take great care of you.

 

P.S. We stopped in at Cabana Bay Resort two days later and caught up with Chef Paul!

Quick snack at Electric Umbrella in EPCOT

We stopped for a dairy-free, nut-free snack of French fries at Electric Umbrella. The cashier told us the fries were cooked in a dedicated fryer but forgot to note the food allergy. When I noticed the omission on the receipt, I asked her about it so there was no possibility of cross-contamination in the kitchen. She called a manager and the manager personally prepared the fries.

'Ohana food allergy review

This quick review was provided by Brenda, who avoids gluten.

It was my first time eating GF at Disney. Chef Boone came out and spoke to me personally, letting me know what was safe and what wasn’t. I got my own GF rolls, and a plate of rice, vegetables, and delicious chicken wings. The salad and all the meats were safe. I also got my own dessert of chocolate chip cake and ice cream with fresh berries. Chef Boone and the staff were great, and my meal was excellent! I highly recommend ‘Ohana for GF dinner!

Recommend ‘Ohana for gluten free?: Yes

Grand Floridian Cafe dinner dairy, peanut and tree nut free

Grand Floridian Chef Ben food allergy chefWe chose to make the Grand Floridian Cafe our first stop for dinner on this trip. We always have a great experience here and this time was one of the best. It was dinner time, and we usually visit the Grand Floridian Cafe for lunch. Since it was dinner, there were a lot of great looking choices, but our daughter knew exactly what she wanted, which was not on either menu, the standard menu or the food allergy menu. She wanted a grilled chicken sandwich, with bacon and guacamole, and a side of fries. The chef this evening was Chef Ben, the same chef who prepared this very same meal the last time we were at the Grand Floridian Cafe. In fact, after reviewing all the choices, Lizzie asked Chef Ben if he could make her a BLT, and he agreed.

He delivered both meals, while our server, Nicolas, delivered my choice, the Cafe Sandwich. Our daughter’s chicken sandwich was perfect, of course, free of dairy, peanuts and tree nuts. She loved it. But, the night wasn’t over. Chef Ben prepared a special melted Enjoy Life Chocolate fondue, with roasted marshmallows, sliced bananas, and strawberries and Enjoy Life Cookies. And, to top it off, he prepared it for the three of us to share. It, too, was fantastic.

Biergarten Restaurant dining without nuts

Food allergies at Biergarten Restaurant

This quick review was provided by Sherill, whose daughter is allergic to all nuts.

We have eaten here several times, and the nut allergic family member loved that all of it was safe. She particularly enjoys being able to eat dessert. We came here on Christmas Eve 2017 and were given a food allergy guide grid which confirmed that everything was safe. We went straight to the desert part of the buffet and loaded up a plate with desserts. When we got to the table, the chef had come to discuss the food allergies. He told us that two of the desserts were not, in fact, safe. They had added two desserts that week that were not safe for nut allergy. If he had not shown up at that time, I think my daughter would have eaten a bit of the almond flour desserts already. He brought her desserts from the kitchen that had not mingled with the buffet desserts. It was a close call.

Recommend Biergarten for nut free?: Yes
