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.

'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.

‘Ohana breakfast with dairy and egg allergies

This quick review was provided by Gillian, whose daughter is allergic to dairy and egg. Read her full Disney World food allergy trip report here.

'Ohana food allergy reviewThe chef arrived promptly at the table and explained he would make our daughter her own wok with everything but the eggs and her own safe waffles.

The kids loved the characters and their meal, but overall, my husband and I found the food quality at this character buffet the most disappointing.  For our personal tastes, it was too salty and greasy, without many healthier alternatives like we were able to find at the other buffets.

'Ohana food allergy reviewWe did the character breakfast and had a great meal and experience. We had a party of 11 ages 4-66. My 4 year old son is allergic to milk, egg and peanut. The chef came out and explained their food prep and the would make a buckwheat waffle with sides of bacon, sausage and potatoes for him. My son doesn’t like sausage or potatoes so he didn’t eat either but he loved the waffles, bacon, fresh fruit and juice. I taste tested the waffles and they were really good! The character interaction was fun for everyone. I was skeptical because my 4 year old twins weren’t familiar with Lilo and Stitch, but they thought Stitch was funny. They loved meeting Mickey and Pluto. The rest of the family loved the food.
Highly recommend!!

'Ohana food allergy reviewWe’d been before to Ohana when our highly allergic son was 15 months old and still allergic to egg as well. We had a great experience then, but he was made a special meal separately from the ‘family style’ fare they serve. This time we were pleased to find out that only three things were off the table for him…peanut sauce, bread, and bread pudding! Chef Boone was amazing & made us feel so well taken care of, offering Greyson some gluten/allergen free rolls & spread to compliment his meal. Grey was able to eat ALL that we could, and it was such a great surprise. At the end of our meal, we were more surprised as Boone brought out an amazing creation for Grey’s dessert of Tofutti ice cream sandwiched between 2 allergen safe cookies, drizzled with chocolate syrup and raspberries. I highly recommend the Ohana experience, and felt we were in excellent hands. (No reactions to report 🙂

'Ohana food allergy reviewWe eat dinner at Ohana every time we visit Disney, but this was the first time with our severely allergic toddler. We told the server we were concerned about the chances of an allergen in the family style dinner or chance of cross contamination. To our surprise the head chef came to our table himself and had wonderful suggestions of steamed rice, fresh vegetables, and an appropriately prepared meat for our son to enjoy instead of sharing our table food. It was excellent service and we were able to enjoy the meal with relatively little worry.

Recommend for milk, peanut, and egg: Yes
