Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe food allergy quick review

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

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
