Akershus Royal Banquet Hall with multiple food allergiesWe went for the princess breakfast. It was so good and Chef Jerry was awesome!

After we were seated Chef Jerry came out to talk to my sister-in-law who just found out she had these allergies. He walked her through the buffet and told her what she could and could not have. She figured she would be just eating fruit. Boy was she surprised when he came out with waffles with dairy free butter and he called over to Morocco to get her some turkey sausage! He was great! That was the first time in about a month my sister-in-law was able to actually eat out at a restaurant. She was in heaven!

Chef Jerry was very good and attentive. I would recommend this to anyone with allergies, hands down!

Recommend for dairy, eggs, pork and corn: Yes

Epcot’s Teppan Edo with food allergies

We received this from Shannon, whose son is allergic to peanuts, tree nuts and eggs.

Tokyo Dining with food allergiesFirst, thank you so much for your blog, it has been very helpful at navigating around Disney World!

I got very worried as I read that some of the Epcot restaurants were not owned by Disney and therefore the chefs may not be trained the same.

My son, who has a peanut, treenut and egg allergy was very excited about going to Teppan Edo because he loves to cook, he wanted to see the chefs in action.

Normally I would never consider going to a similar restaurant, but in Disney I felt safer.

I decided to call ahead and speak to a manager. He assured me that there are no peanuts/tree nuts on the premises. He mentioned that the noodles have eggs in them, as does their white yum-yum sauce, both are easy to just avoid. They do not make fried rice, so there is no eggs on the grill.

Can’t tell you how thrilled I was that I was able to keep my reservation and let my son be apart of this exciting dining experience.

We are traveling over Thanksgiving, so I’ll be sure to touch base with you again and let you know how our experience was!

Le Cellier Steakhouse food allergy review

This quick review was provided by Amanda, whose daughter is allergic to peanuts.

We made advance reservations to eat here for lunch. Although this was not our first trip to Disney, it was the first trip with our PA daughter. I had heard great reviews about Disney and food allergies but was still nervous.

We didn’t have to wait too long to be seated. Our waitress was friendly and when I mentioned our daughter’s allergy (I had also noted it on the reservation) she said she would note that on the order and make sure the Chef knew. I asked if we needed to speak to him ourselves and she said she would send him out if we wanted but that she would make sure he knew. She wasn’t pushy or anything, she just seemed like she understood our situation so I was okay with that.

My Husband and I ordered the much talked about “Le Cellier” Mushroom Filet Mignon & Cheddar soup and my 2 daughters ordered pasta with marinara sauce. It really was just as good as I had heard. Yum! My daughters enjoyed their lunch. After we were finished the waitress offered to bring out sundaes for the girls if we wanted to do dessert. This is where I hesitated. We had never ordered dessert for my daughter at a restaurant. Would it be safe? The waitress assured me they would make sure it was peanut free. She just really reassured me so I said okay and they brought out the sundaes. My daughter’s (with the PA) sundae came out with a food allergy alert pick sticking out of her sundae and no sprinkles. The chef brought these out himself and was very friendly. The only complaint…very minor…was that my other daughter’s sundae had sprinkles on it because she does not have any food allergies. Luckily, there wasn’t too much complaint from my PA daughter but could have been a total meltdown-one sibling getting something different from the other! All in all we had a fabulous experience here with no problems.

Recommend for peanuts: Yes

Another wonderful quick review provided by Sheri, whose daughter is allergic to dairy and egg.

Food allergies at Biergarten RestaurantMy family recently dined at the biergarten in the Germany pavilion at Epcot. I had made advanced reservations for all of our table service restaurants well in advance and had our allergies noted at that time. Our party consisted of my in laws, my husband, myself, and our 7 year old daughter who has severe dairy and egg allergies. My husband and I eat on her diet when we are with her.

The biergarten is a very popular buffet style restaurant, please get advanced reservations ASAP if you want to dine here. It was crowded and took about 15 minutes for a chef to come out to see us. however, when the chef arrived he was courteous and kind and took us right to the buffet. there were many options for us to choose from including cold deli meats, pickled beets and red cabbage, sauerkraut, knockwurst (one of my daughter’s favorites), german potato salad, and pork loin roast with apple butter. Please try the pretzel rolls, they are wonderful! Our family has a german background so these are all foods out daughter is familiar with. The food is excellent and the chef offered to fix any dishes we wanted in the kitchen and bring them to us if we were worried about cross contamination.

During dinner there is a German band who take the stage to preform. a dance floor is available for dancing and polkas (practice your chicken dance). The restaurant is very family friendly and in addition to serious polka dancers there are always little ones jumping and hopping around.

One item to note: you sit at a long tables with other parties. This means there will be allergens present at the table. We sat our daughter in between us and she felt safe. Because we had a chef come out to the table the other guests who sat with us were curious about daughter’s allergies. We answered any questions and they were amazed at the level of service we received.

Recommend for dairy and egg: Yes

Another fantastic quick review provided by Sheri, whose daughter is allergic to dairy and egg.

Tokyo Dining with a food allergyTokyo Dining has become our traditional “final stop” of our Disney vacations. It is a lovely restaurant with a calm, serene atmosphere which is welcomed at the end of what can be a hectic stay.

Our party consisted of my in laws, my husband, myself, and our 7 year old daughter who has severe dairy and egg allergies. My husband and I eat on her diet when we are with her. One of the reasons we like this restaurant as much as we do is because we can eat almost all of the items just as they are presented on the menu with no alterations. The manager came to our table and we told him we needed to have a dairy and egg free meal. He replied with those magic words “That’s all? That’s so easy!”

My daughter had the teriyaki chicken kids meal (chicken, carrots, and rice) which comes in a bullet train plate. She also had eel and salmon sushi. There was no food left on her plate by the end of the meal. She even ate from mom and dad’s plates, I also had teriyaki chicken and my husband had salmon. We also truly enjoyed our food. The manager came back as we were eating and after our meal to make sure we were satisfied. This was appreciated as it was very busy in the restaurant
while we were there.

Katsura Grill in Epcot – food allergy quick review

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

Dining with food allergies at Katsura GrillWe stopped here for a quick dinner on 5-10-13 because from first glance the menu seemed very accommodating to our daughter’s severe dairy and egg allergies. once inside we asked to speak with someone about allergies and the waitstaff was quick to get ahold of the manager on duty. We informed him of our allergies and he pulled out the binder with the ingredient list for us.

We eat Japanese food quite often because, while we do need to be on a sharp lookout for eggs, the use of dairy is almost non existent. Imagine our surprise when we found out that the teriyaki sauce contained whey. This meant that all that nearly all the items on the menu had milk in them. The manager explained that while the beef and chicken dished were marinated in the teriyaki sauce but the salmon was not. He offered to make us plain grilled salmon with vegetables and white rice. Our seven year old is not a chicken nugget and french fries kind of girl and salmon is one of her favorite foods. So she and my husband had salmon. We were there at a slow time and the waitresses kept my daughter entertained and even made her an origami crane as a keepsake!

While the food was not what we expected the staff went above and beyond to accommodate us.

Recommend for dairy and egg: Maybe

This quick review was provided by Leslie, whose sone is allergic to Tree Nuts, Egg, Peanuts, Wheat and Dairy.

Liberty Inn - America Pavilion - EpcotWhen I mentioned that my son had food allergies, the cashier pulled out a notebook containing information about the ingredients in their various foods. He also called the manager who discussed my son’s food allergies with us and asked what he would like. He decided on a hamburger with a cookie and carrot sticks. The manager asked us if we would like for all of our food to be ready at the same time and gave me the option of either waiting at the counter or receiving a pager. We chose the pager and enjoyed being able to find a table and my son enjoyed coloring while we waited on our food to arrive. When the pager went off, my husband went to get the food and the manager returned to our table with my husband carrying my son’s food on a separate tray. I appreciated the personal attention that she gave us.

I would like to see more restaurants have the food for the food allergic person be ready at the same time as the food for the rest of the family. I also really liked the pager.

Recommend for Tree Nuts, Egg, Peanuts, Wheat and Dairy: Yes

This quick review was provided by Gretchen, whose son is allergic to peanut, cashew, egg, and dairy.

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

Liberty Inn with a dairy allergy

This quick review was provided by Danielle, who is allergic to milk.

Liberty Inn was a good place to eat. I ordered the dairy-free chicken strips and french fries. Although it was simple, it was yummy! We spoke with the manager and he assured me the meal would be prepared safely. I think Liberty Inn is a good place if you are looking to get a safe meal in a fairly short amount of time.Liberty Inn - America Pavilion - Epcot
