Dining at Everything Pop with multiple food allergies

This quick review was provided by Jaime, whose son is allergic to:barley, beef, tree nuts (cashews, almonds, etc), chicken, sweet potatoes, pork, soy, oat, milk, wheat, carrot, peanut, squash, turkey, sunflower, coconut, mustard, onion, seseme seed, lemon, and mushroom

My Mom and I took my son to stay at Pop Century when he was 4-yrs-old in Aug. 2011. We were there 4 nights on the dining plan. The chef called me several times before our trip to plan for my son who has over 20 allergies. Due to all of his allergies, there really isn’t much on most of the kid’s menus that he can eat safely. All the hotdogs, pizza, chicken, hamburgers, mac & cheese, pb&J are unsafe for him.

My son loved watermelon, so the chef ordered a watermelon for him to have during our stay. He used 3 out of the 4 quick service and most of his snack credits there. We are not early risers most days, so I decided that the best thing to do would go by Pop dining on our way to the bus and get his lunch to go. The chef prepared shrimp, watermelon, and allowed him to get Divvies popcorn as his dessert. He also got an orange juice as his drink. My son loved the Divvies popcorn so much that he choose that as most of his snack credits too. We are both sad that Divvies is no longer at WDW. I loved the plastic to-go plates the chef sent the food to-go in because they are reuseable. The chef was great to my son and he loved the food at Pop.

Dining at Cape May with food allergies

This quick review was provided by Jaime, whose son has 20 food allergies: barley, beef, tree nuts (cashews, almonds, etc), chicken, sweet potatoes, pork, soy, oat, milk, wheat, carrot, peanut, squash, turkey, sunflower, coconut, mustard, onion, seseme seed, lemon, and mushroom

My son was 4-years-old when we ate there in Aug. 2011 at Cape May on the dining plan. He has over 20 allergies, but he can eat seafood.

The chef called me several times before our trip to plan for him. He wanted to make sure that my son had plenty of safe foods to eat that he would love. The chef offered to make a special rice milk flan for dessert.

We arrived before our ADR time, and waited for a few minutes before we were taken to a table. There was a tv with classic Disney cartoons on in the lobby while we waited. The table had paper on it, and my son loved being able to color on it while he waited for his food. The chef came to the table and walked me around the buffet to get some ideas of what he could prepare safely for my son. He brought him some fresh fish and veggies. My son ate over a bucket of clams and some crab legs too. He ate more there than any where else at Disney. I loved the crab legs, friend shrimp, red potatoes, Oreo Bon Bon, and Key Lime Tarts.

If you aren’t a seafood lover there is still plenty of food to enjoy like barbeque pork ribs, marinated roast chicken, pasta, mac and cheese, and beef tips. We all loved it so much that we are going back this summer!

Tokyo Dining with a food allergyMy husband and I had a delicious dinner at Tokyo Dining in Epcot last night (12/22)! I had contacted the Disney Special Diets team in advance and notified them of my food allergies and food intolerances. When we had been shown to our table, the manager of the restaurant came to the table and asked what I would like to order and wrote down my list of allergens. She personally brought the order to the chef and then personally brought the food to our table to ensure that the order was correct and accurate.

Tokyo Dining with multiple food allergiesI ordered grilled chicken, steamed white rice, and cooked carrots. I asked if it was possible to get some sesame oil to put on the grilled chicken for flavor and so they also brought me some sesame oil on the side. The food was absolutely delicious and most importantly it was a safe meal! My husband said that he wished he had ordered what I had because it looked so good! I did not get sick afterwards and I have never had a reaction from a meal at Disney because they have excellent customer service for guests that have food allergies and intolerances. I highly recommend this place to eat if you have multiple food allergies and intolerances like I do because they were very accommodating!

Electric Umbrella food allergy quick review

Dining at the Electric Umbrella with food allergiesYesterday (12/22) my husband and I decided to go to Electric Umbrella at Epcot to grab a quick lunch. I have always had excellent customer service and excellent accommodations made for my food allergies at Disney at sit-down restaurants in the past. I usually pack a light lunch to eat on the go though so that I do not have to worry about getting food at any of the fast food restaurants for lunch. Even though I had packed a lunch and already had dinner reservations for that evening at a sit-down restaurant, I decided to see if they could accommodate my allergies at this restaurant because if they could it would mean I could eat a hot meal (which would be nice since it was cold outside).

When we got to the cashier to place the food order, my husband asked if we could see a food allergy menu. The cashier immediately called over a manager who discussed the special food allergies menu with us and showed us the ingredient list for items on the menu. They offered Annie’s Gluten Free Macaroni and Cheese on the menu, but unfortunately it was the version that had dairy and soy in it so I could not eat it. They also offer Allergen Free chicken tenderloins which are Gluten Free, Dairy Free, and Soy Free which I would have been able to eat except they are made with garlic which I can not have. When I said I could not eat either of those, the manager and cashier were both very apologetic and asked if there was something else they could get me such as maybe a fruit cup at least. I explained that I had packed a lunch just in case I could not eat the food at the restaurant and that I would just eat that.

My husband went ahead and ordered his food though (my husband is blessed to not have any food allergies or intolerances). This experience told me that this restaurant is being accommodating though and has options that are great for people who are gluten free and dairy free. I hope that as time goes on that they will add more items to their special allergen free menu to accommodate people with even more food allergies and intolerances.
