At last, we have a menu with food allergy options at Disneyland! These menus are from Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo and they have many options. HOWEVER, be sure to speak to a chef if you have questions or may want to ask him or her to tweak something else you might like.

Disney hasn’t listed food allergy options for the following, but they may add options soon:

Kat Saka’s Kettle

Ronto Roasters

Milk Stand (while there are no food allergies mentioned here, the “milk” is “Plant-based blend of Coconut and Rice milks”)

Oga’s Cantina

Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo Breakfast food allergy options

Satu’li Canteen with dairy, peanut and tree nut allergies

Pandora at Animal KingdomThe Disney Culinary Imagineers did an amazing job putting together a menu with many delicious and unique allergen-free meals.  First, it’s a bit different from most other quick service locations, which is probably due to its Asian influences. First, you select your protein, like chicken, beef, tofu or shrimp. The chicken and beef are wood-grilled at a station visible upon entering the canteen. The tofu is chili-spiced and fried. Next, you select a base, such as rice or noodles, then you pick a sauce.  They also have a list of combinations to make ordering easy. See the menu for the full list.

Our favorite is the chicken, rice and bean sauce, which is more of a mildly spicy vinaigrette sauce. It’s delicious and we always ask for extra. This option is straight off the menu and is free of dairy, peanut and tree nut. However, we still specify our allergies when ordering.  They do have an allergy menu, of course. However, after discovering this fantastic combination, we only consult it to make sure nothing has changed. You may notice on the allergy-friendly menu, most of the options are the same across allergen categories, except for fish/shellfish and soy.

As a Disney World Passholder, we have the luxury of entering a park just for a meal. On this last trip to Disney World, we made the trip on the fabulous Disney Transportation System bus all the way to Animal Kingdom just for lunch at Satu’li Canteen. It is that good. Of course, we also stopped at Tamu Tamu for a Dole Whip.

Hollywood Brown Derby with multiple food allergies

This quick review was provided by a reader, whose daughter is allergic to wheat, dairy, all nuts and shellfish.

We have eaten here a few times and they do a great job! My daughter is allergic to wheat, dairy, all nuts and shellfish. They prepared a safe meal for her, and even had warm rolls for her to start! We will certainly be there again on our next trip to Disney World!

Recommend Hollywood Brown Derby for those allergic to wheat, dairy, nuts and shellfish?: Yes

Aulani review with multiple food allergies

Jennifer and Kyle at Aulani with food allergies

Special diets: allergic to tree nuts, peanuts, potato, wheat, and sorghum; dairy intolerance; vegan preference

This quick review was provided by Jennifer, who is allergic to tree nuts, peanuts, potato, wheat, and sorghum, is dairy intolerent and has a vegan preference.

AULANI, in general: The food at Aulani is simple, based mostly on Hawaiian and Japanese cuisine.  There are only two small table service restaurants.  As such, options here can be somewhat limited, depending on your allergies.  For picky eaters and people with long allergy and special diet lists like mine, there aren’t many options, but the chefs are fantastic at coming up with creative menus and new ideas to provide safe and pleasing meals.  The chefs provide the same high-end allergy service you expect from Disney, though they have fewer ingredients to work with.  We were very satisfied with the food service, overall.

The chefs circulate between both restaurants, so you will begin to see familiar faces in both places if you go back often. We had one particular (and very good) chef three times: once at Makahiki and twice at ‘AMA’AMA.

The main gift shop sells a small selection of ‘Snacks with Character’, which are allergy-friendly treats, but not all top-10-free.  Some were Enjoy Life treats.  Be sure to check the labels on every item, every time!

The chef we spoke with before our visit told us that the only safe places for me to eat would be Makahiki, ‘AMA’AMA, and the shave ice stand.  The quick service locations and luau wouldn’t be able to accommodate my allergy list.

Studio rooms have a kitchenette that is great for preparing simple meals.  You can also request a rice cooker to use in your room.  For the two of us, this combination of microwave, fridge, and rice cooker, with a heavy dose of creativity, kept us well fed outside of our dining reservations. Villas have a full kitchen with range.  Grocery stores are within a five minute drive to Kapolei: Costco, Walmart, Target, and Down to Earth natural food store (with plenty of allergy-friendly brands) are all there – plus more, I’m sure.

Gluten free at Epcot’s Coral Reef – quick review

Coral Reef Epcot Disney food allergiesMy husband and I came here for lunch. I indicated my dietary restrictions when making our reservation, and mentioned them to the host when we checked in. We arrived a few minutes early, and were seated right at our reservation time. Our table was right up by the aquarium, which was pretty cool.

Our waitress came out and took our drink order, then told me a chef would come out to speak with me shortly. When the chef came out, I already had an idea of what I wanted, so I asked if the Grilled Mahi Mahi could be done gluten-free. He said it could, and also offered me gluten-free rolls, which I accepted. They came wrapped up in their own little basket, which was marked to keep it from my husband’s non-gluten free rolls. They were warmed, and pretty good.

Coral Reef gluten free Grilled Mahi-MahiThe mahi mahi was the best entree I had on our trip. The shrimp were perfectly cooked, the fish was flaky and tender, and the sauce was wonderful. Even the garnish on top worked well with the other flavors, rather than just being decorative and superfluous. For dessert, I had the Chocolate Wave, a flourless chocolate cake served with raspberry gelato. It was one of the better flourless chocolate cakes I have eaten. Overall, this was a wonderful dining experience and we will definitely be back.

Recommend for gluten: Yes

Be Our Guest dining gluten freeMy husband and I ate here for lunch and liked it so much we came again for lunch two days later. It is very easy to dine here with dietary restrictions. You either order via touchscreen or you place your order with a cast member (we ended up ordering both ways). If you are using a touchscreen, there is a place where you can indicate any allergies, and the menu updates to display what your options are. There were a surprising number of gluten-free options.

If you don’t have a magic band (we did) you are given a rose to place on your table so that the cast members know where to deliver your food. The dining areas of the restaurant are absolutely beautiful. We ate for the first time in the west wing, and the second time in the main ballroom. Both rooms were very detailed in their theming.

The first time we ate here, I ordered the roast beef sandwich. It came on what I’m pretty sure was an Udi’s hot dog bun. The bun was a little dry, but the roast beef was tender and went well with the horseradish sauce and arugula. The french fries were also made in a designated fryer and thus safe to eat.

Slow cooked pork at Be Our GuestThe second time we ate here, I had the braised pork with green beans and mashed potatoes. It was the best meal I had at any quick-service restaurant, and had the quality of a table-service restaurant. The green beans had a wonderful texture and were well seasoned and cooked with onions and bell peppers, the mashed potatoes were wonderfully creamy and seemed to be made fresh, rather than from mashed potato flakes. The pork was well-seasoned and just melted in your mouth. I will be ordering it every time I eat here in the future.

There is only one gluten-free option for dessert: a lemon-raspberry cream puff. It is very good, with a smooth and tart lemon curd filling, some whipped cream, a fresh raspberry, and a small square of chocolate with “Be our Guest” written on it in gold.

I loved every part of eating here from the ambiance to the food, and we will definitely eat here again.

Liberty Inn food allergy quick review

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

Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe food allergy quick review

Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe with food allergiesThis was our first experience ordering food at a Magic Kingdom restaurant. We spoke to a manager about our 3-year-old son’s food allergies and she said that they could make him a safe hamburger, french fries, and cookies. We waited while the staff prepared the food for our family. I noticed that my son was given a cheeseburger instead of a hamburger (which is what we had ordered). The employee seemed confused and I explained to him that my son has a milk allergy and can not have cheese. He said that they would prepare him a new hamburger and it was ready a few minutes later.

My 6-year-old son started eating a cookie when we sat down. I thought that it was the cookie that my 3-year-old ordered. My husband started to give my 3-year-old the other half of the cookie, but I had a bag of safe cookies in my son’s backpack that I gave him as a substitute. I looked at the label on the cookie package and it contained wheat and eggs! Apparently, we were given the standard cookie instead of the allergy friendly cookie! I talked to a different manager who was concerned and repeatedly asked if my food allergic son ate any of the cookies and I reassured her that he had not. She went to the back and got us 2 packages of Enjoy Life cookies. She said that she was going to immediately report the problem to the kitchen staff.

An important lesson that I learned was that the safe cookies at Walt Disney World are always the Enjoy Life cookies, so if you receive anything else, double-check the ingredients!

Recommend for Tree Nuts, Egg, Peanuts, Wheat and Dairy: No

Columbia Harbour House quick review

Dining with food allergies at Columbia Harbour HouseOH my goodness. The chicken tenders. I LOVE the chicken tenders at the Columbia Harbor house. Gluten free, they were always moist and well seasoned. I paired them with the broccoli. If you are looking for a quick pick me up, small lunch or dinner, this is a good plate. It doesn’t weigh you down, and you get at least three good sized tenders.

I was never hungry after leaving, and the atmosphere was awesome- It’s much bigger on the inside than expected. Grab an upstairs room for a quiet retreat – strollers often don’t make it up the stairs, so it tends to house couples and families with older kids. Lots of little nooks to find and hide away in from the heat!

Recommend for gluten and tree nutes: Yes
