Akershus Royal Banquet Hall with multiple food allergiesAbout 5 minutes after being seated, a chef arrived at our table to walk us through the appetizer buffet. He wouldn’t prepare anything for us in the kitchen, but just told us to avoid baked items like bread. I was not impressed. The chef came back to our table and said he could make baked chicken and potatoes with carrots, corn and fresh fruit.

Even though it was ordered before the rest of our party’s entrees, DS’s allergy-free plate didn’t arrive until a full 10 minutes after everyone else had started eating. I’m glad we had brought our “just in case” stash of food for him to snack on while our 3yo waited impatiently for real food. His older sister was the reason we ate here (princess dinner), but the 3yo boy enjoyed it all, too. If you have a girl enamored with princesses, it might be worth it. But for boys….I’d pass and find somewhere else.

Recommend for peanut, cashew, egg, and dairy: Maybe

Dining with food allergies at Hollywood & VineAfter being seated, we had a chef arrive within 8 minutes to walk us through the buffet. He said we could just pick up things from the buffet but stay away from baked goods. I told him I would prefer something be prepared in the kitched for him so we could avoid cross-contamination. He said all they could make was Van’s frozen waffles and fresh fruit. So that’s what DS ate. We eat this at home, so he was fine.

I’m glad he was just a week shy of 3yo, because I’d hate to pay the character meal, table-service price for a 3yo to just eat frozen waffles! But my son was all about Special Agent Oso and loved every minute here. One note…the chef said strawberries aren’t normally on the breafast buffet, but he brought some out for DS, which he loved. So, that was nice.

Recommend for peanut, cashew, egg, and dairy: Maybe

Dining with food allergies at Chef MickeysA chef was at our table within 3 minutes of being seated. He walked us through the buffet and told us what they would prepare for our DS in the kitchen free of his allergies and cross-contamination.

It took about 15 minutes, but a HUGE plate of food was prepared and delivered to my 3yo son. Baked chicken, broccoli, carrots, cucumber, and fresh strawberries. At the end of our dinner, a 1st visit cupcake was brought to my DS that was all allergy-free complete with icing. My DS was in heaven! “For me? I can eat it?” We plan to eat here at least once on every return visit! Plus, the character interactions are some of the best around!

Recommend for peanut, cashew, egg, dairy: Yes

Food allergies at Pinocchio Village HausWe heard from others this was not the most allergy-friendly counter-service place at Disney, so we came prepared with food we brought in from our room for my DS. When placing our order, we asked if they could make french fries allergy-free. The Cast Member said we’d need to speak to a manager, so we just ordered all our other food and stood to the side and waited for a manager. We waited 5 minutes after receiving our food and just gave up.

About half-way through our meal, my DS was begging to eat some of our fries, so my husband went back to wait for a manager. After 10 minutes, one finally arrived and said they could bake some fries but it would take 15 minutes. We received a pager and got them in the time stated. They were fresh from the oven and, of course, not able to be eated right away by a 3yo son.

So, we just took them with us on the road (in the tupperware we brought his lunch in from our room). Those fries were a good snack later while waiting for the train and parade. Disney really needs a more allergy-friendly option in the heart of Fantasyland – which is where all the kids are!

Food allergy free dining at BomaThe chef came out and went over everything at the buffet that had nuts or peanuts in it, so my husband or I did not take anything with nuts. Then asked my son what his favorite foods were and told him that he would make him anything he wanted. They brought him chicken fingers, mac and cheese, fries and veggies. All prepared safe and separate. It was so great that they gave him a variety of things and made him feel like he was eating at the “buffet”, too! Then they made him a safe very special dessert!!

Recommend for peanuts, cashews and pistachios: Yes
