Cape May dairy and egg allergies

This quick review was provided by Gillian, whose daughter is allergic to dairy and egg.

Our favourite character buffet breakfast on property both from a non food allergy and food allergy standpoint. We loved our breakfast experience so much here, we dropped two other breakfast reservations to revisit this place 3 times during our week stay.

The restaurant atmosphere is more spacious and relaxed than some of the other character breakfast locations and the buffet selection is vast and delicious. Chefs Mace and Christian really looked after my daughter here. She had Mickey Waffles, bacon, sausage and smoked salmon, asparagus, sliced tomatoes, fruit loops, Erin McKenna DONUTS, fruits, hot oatmeal, chocolate and regular soy milk. What a treat!

On one of the days I had concerns about the “look” of the allergy waffles. Chef Mace promptly came back to the table and addressed my concerns, taking the time to explain why they looked a bit different and how they had been safely prepared. We felt very safe letting her eat here.

‘Ohana dining with a soy allergy

Miserable experience here tonight. Chef basically said: don’t eat anything but the meat. Said he’d make me a roll and salad. Salad didn’t come until my entire party was done eating. Still haven’t gotten the roll. Couldn’t eat any of the appetizers and he didn’t offer me any substitutions except rice or plain noodles. Now, I like meat as much as the next person, but a dinner it does not make. We’re on the dining plan so I paid the same amount to eat meat that everyone else did for an entire meal. He did come up w an allergy friendly dessert that was pretty much just vanilla ice cream, berries, and chocolate syrup. Not at all original or unique.

As a side note, the service was miserable too. Never asked if we wanted a kid’s meal for the 4 year old in our party or if we wanted any alcoholic drinks.

We attended the character breakfast, which was awesome, and so was the food. The waitress worked with the chef, both checking on us frequently to ensure we got what we needed and were satisfied.

The chef personally delivers all of my safe foods. I could not eat the bread, but I didn’t need it! The waffles, eggs, breakfast sausage, potatoes and fruit were all awesome! I had my own plate and they have the Earth Balance soy free “butter” which I love. Beware of syrup if you have a dairy allergy. All around Disney, they use butter in their syrup. Ask for the pure maple syrup. It’s delicious too!

‘Ohana dining with a milk and soy allergy

'Ohana food allergy reviewI was nervous about this one due to the family style dining setup, but was blown away by my wonderful experience. Every step of the way, from check in to the hostess to our waitress to the chef, they confirmed my allergies. The chef indicated that none of the traditional dining that is brought from table to table was safe, but that he would prepare my food separately and bring it out. I expected bland basics, but everything was delicious.

As it is family style, there is a set menu and no choices. Here is what I was brought.
-green salad with vinaigrette
-gluten free rolls with I’m assuming earth balance, but it didn’t look quite right so I skipped it
-ginger chicken wings (no sauce)
-steamed white rice with veggies (onion, baby corn, broccoli, mushroom, water chestnuts)
-grilled chicken, grilled shrimp, steak–all very tender despite no sauce
-enjoy life soft double chocolate chip cookies with fruit (the only mediocre course)

I would highly recommend this experience! I left stuffed and there was more than I could possibly have eaten brought to me. Excellent flavors and very friendly and reassuring staff.

Hoop-De-Doo Musical Revue with multiple food allergies

Hoop-De-Doo Musical Revue with multiple food allergiesAlthough I am usually very apprehensive with pre-fixe menus given my allergies, I decided to give Hoop-De-Doo Musical Revue a try since it got great reviews. When my waiter got to the table, I immediately informed him of my food allergies and he called over Chef TJ. Chef TJ made me a modified version of the what was served to everyone else (fried chicken, ribs (no sauce), corn, and baked potato). For dessert, chef TJ made me one of his special concoctions. I was literally stuffed from dinner so I didn’t eat much of the dessert. Overall, this was an amazing experience. Disney is truly a magic place, especially for those with food allergies!

Disney Kona Cafe dairy-free egg-free sundaeChef Amber was a standout for us on our vacation.  When she found out that my daughter had never eaten in a restaurant before, due to her allergies, she went out of her way to make our night special.  My daughter saw a hotdog on the kids menu, but was told they did not have a safe hotdog bun or French fries.  However, Chef Amber brought her gluten free buns to make her own mini hotdogs, baked her some fries in the oven and made her green beans.

She also made my daughter her own, make your own sundae bar, with rice dream ice cream, Hershey’s chocolate syrup, Mickey sprinkles, crushed Enjoy Life cookies and Cotton Candy!  She was in heaven and talked about Amber all week!  Amber gave both daughters a lei and told us to email her directly if we were coming back so she could prepare something special for the girls.  She was really a stand out chef on our vacation.

Chef Mickey’s with a dairy and egg allergy

Chef Mickeys dairy-free egg-free breakfastThe Chef (Enrico?) took me around the buffet and kept telling me it was fine for her to eat off the buffet.  I insisted that we couldn’t risk cross contamination from eggs and dairy and he seemed a little put out initially.  However, after some effusive graciousness and even a couple of thankful tears from mum, he made her a huge plate of Mickey waffles, brought out smoked salmon roses decorated with fruits and plates of safe meats.

Her also gave her a Mickey cupcake for later.  All in all a great meal (just too bad about the initial buffet pushiness).

Dining at the wave with food allergiesChef Paul made a wonderful meal for daughter of Grilled Fish, Rice Pilaf and Steamed Asparagus.  He also brought out safe breads and Earth Balance butter.  Dessert was an ice cream sundae with Enjoy Life Mickey Ears.  She loved her dinner.

Chef Paul was extremely friendly and nice to us, even thought the restaurant was very busy.  He made me feel like it was no trouble to prepare her something and had no problem switching things around from the allergy menus to make her a meal she would enjoy. My husband and I also loved our meals (we both had a different fish special) at this restaurant.

california-grill-logoGreat job accommodating our daughter’s allergies.  She had a lot of choices and we settled on allergy safe tuna sushi rolls as a starter for the whole table, and she had steak, veg and rice from the children’s meal.  The only disappointment was that they didn’t have a more “exciting” dessert option for her.  She had the fruit kabob minus the yogurt as they said that was the only option.  The waiter kept pushing dessert for me, and I had to explain that I didn’t want to eat a yummy dessert when my daughter could only have 4 pieces of fruit.  Bummer, but we went to Magic Kingdom and got a Dole Whip to make up for it.  Not the end of the world and she didn’t mind having fruit (I was the one disappointed to skip my yummy dessert.  LOL)

Overall another great dinner. My husband and I loved our bison steaks here and our other daughter was excited to have pizza..a rare treat for the sister of a diary allergic kid.

Sanaa dining with food allergiesThe kids loved this restaurant.  We ordered the allergy safe Naan and three dips including the hummus which our daughter ate with a spoon.  She loved the bread, we were okay with the bread (I personally would have preferred the regular Naan, but we wanted to keep things inclusive for the table.  For allergy free Naan it was delish!  A treat for gluten free folks for sure!

Our daughter really wanted curried lentils but they were not on the allergy kids menu.  No problem at all for her.  The chef was happy to make her the fish and give her sides of lentils and Israeli couscous. Kids were not a fan of the mango sorbet here (too sweet compared to what they are used to at home), but they picked it from a few options..so that was not for lack of choice.

Overall our daughter loved her meal here-she said it was her favourite non character meal.  We had a great window table.
