Our friends over at PeanutAllergy.com recently inteviewed Gary Jones, Culinary Dietary Specialist of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts. He discusses their approach, training and other dietary initiatives.
Some interesting data from the interview include the 625,000 guests who visited Disney World and Disneyland with one or more food allergies. He also mentions that guests visiting with 3 or more food allergies is not uncommon and does not “stress us out”. And he includes some tips for visiting with special dietary needs. Mainly, it’s all about planning accordingly, especially if you have multiple food allergies, including guests with especially complex food allergy combinations.
