October 2011 trip to Disney World with a food allergy

We’re heading out, back to Atlanta, after another successful trip to Disney World. It was successful because we met lots of fans and had NO ALLERGIC REACTIONS!!! And once again, we encountered a lot of people who didn’t know about the Disney food allergy program until they arrived, or shortly before. So we made a lot of new friends and we also passed along the information about our contest and our contest sponsor, BabyCakes NYC in Downtown Disney. Our winner for this contest found us at Epcot.

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party photosOne fabulous find, this trip, was Le Chefs de France. They make their own sorbet, and have dedicated equipment with no cross-contamination with dairy. They also make their own French rolls, again without dairy or cross-contamination. Our daughter enjoyed eating fresh French bread for the first time. More about this later when we write the review.

Two more highlights were The Plaza in the Magic Kingdom and the 50s Prime Time Cafe in Hollywood Studios. Prime Time Cafe was literally a blast from the past, and the chef prepared a special plate for our daughter. Later, we found the lounge was an excellent place to stop and cool off.

Akershus was great as usual, for breakfast, and the Princesses were wonderful with Mary Poppins paying a visit this time.

When we first arrived in Disney World, we dined at Wolfgang Puck’s Cafe, where Chef Carlos carved beautiful roses out of fresh strawberries after serving a wonderful grilled chicken for Charlotte. That night, we also flew through BabyCakes NYC to pickup some items to have around in the hotel. We stopped in the next day and discovered another gem in Downtown Disney. Fresh-A-Peel, in the same building as BabyCakes NYC and Pollo Campero, has a smoothie stand that never uses dairy, nuts, or gluten in their blenders. It was the first smoothie our daughter has ever had that we didn’t prepare. They also have other gluten-free options, healthy snacks, juices and fresh fruit.

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party was a big thrill! We plan to go next year, too. It was so much fun but we didn’t get to do everything. The Disney Villains were behaving as one might expect, wicked and scary, but not too scary. We didn’t have any problem avoiding the candy and there was so much excitement everywhere that our daughter didn’t even noticed the candy stations. We simply brought our favorite Enjoy Life candy bars, Divvies Jelly Beans and other treats so that she had a basket of candy like everyone else. During the Boo to You Parade, Charlotte was offered candy from Goofy’s Candy Company crew, but politely declined.

Another great experience was the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party. We had no real expectations for our daughter’s dessert, but we were absolutely impressed. On top of all the delicious dessert samples available for the masses, the waiter met with us and said the chef had prepared a special plate of fabulous desserts for her. And boy did he ever deliver! More about that in our review.

Look for more reviews to come.

So, until we return to the Happiest Place on Earth, we’ll be dining out at our local “allergy free haunts,” Moes, California Pizza Kitchen, Red Robin and Dulce Vegan bakery.

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party-Food Allergy Free

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2011We’re attending this fun and exciting event next week, and the anticipation is almost unbearable.

The party is held on select nights, starting in September and ending in November, at the Magic Kingdom theme park. You have to buy an additional ticket to attend, but it’s well worth it.

Since guests are encouraged to dress in Halloween costumes, we’re planning to attend as a mummy family. And the kids get to trick-or-treat their way through the park. Like a normal Halloween, this will be somewhat challenging with a food allergy, dairy in our case. More about that below.

Along with special lighting, music and Halloween effects that turn the Happiest Place on Earth into “happy haunted hallows,” a special fireworks display replaces “Wishes” with “Happy HalloWishes,” where Disney Villains go trick-or-treating in the sky.

We are really looking forward to Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade, which kicks off with a ride down Main Street by the Headless Horseman and includes Disney Characters and stars of the Haunted Mansion.

And, we are really excited to meet the Disney Villains, like Captain Hook, Ursula, Doctor Facilier and Maleficent.

In preparation for our trip and attendance at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, we inquired about the candy. Disney World Special Diets told us the candy handed out in the park is a mixture of Skittles, Twix, Snickers, Milky Way, peanut chews, M&M’s (peanut and plain), lollipops and a few other small candies.

We also emailed the team at The Disney Blog, who recently attended the party, and they provided this list of gluten free treats that they collected, and inspected. Please, as always, check the manufacturer’s website for the most up-to-date list of ingredients.

  • Reeses peanut butter cup
  • M&M’s plain and peanut
  • Mickey shaped lollipops
  • Milky way
  • Skittles
  • Snickers
  • Laffy taffy
  • Foil covered chocolate monsters
  • Almond Joy
  • Peanut chews
  • Tootsie roll
  • Smarties
  • Lemon Heads
  • Sassy sours
  • Nerds
  • Sour Patch Kids
  • Tootsie fruit rolls
  • Tootsie pops
  • Dots

Disney Special Diets also tells us that vendors and suppliers occasionally swap out product and this is subject to change, and to visit City Hall for other options.

With her food allergy, our daughter can’t eat many of the items on this list. We plan to supplement this with candy we bring that we know is safe and free of her food allergy. Of course, we don’t go to Disney for the candy. We go because our daughter can eat at most of the restaurants, knowing the chefs will take good care of her.

We’ll provide an update to this next week. Subscribe to our RSS feed or contact us if you want to be alerted to the update. If you’ve attend this year’s party, let us know what your or your children could eat with your food allergy.
