Special dietary requests at Walt Disney World
The Walt Disney World Resort is known as the place where dreams come true. Each year, millions of visitors visit Central Florida to experience Disney’s world-class theme parks and are amazed at Disney’s top-notch customer service, often called the “Disney Difference.” So what makes Disney different than its other competitors out there? Other than its sheer size and volume of guests each year, the Walt Disney World Resort truly exists on the notion that each and every guest that steps foot on property is treated alike and that all of their wishes will come true while they are on vacation. This can mean anything from granting magical surprises during Disney’s “Year of a Million Dreams” campaign that they are currently in the midst of to accommodating the unique requests of guests at Walt Disney World while promoting and encouraging diversity.
So what does all this mean to you? If you are one of millions of people who are planning on visiting the Walt Disney World Resort but have special dietary needs, it can mean the difference between having a stressful vacation to enjoying a stress-free vacation. How do make sure your vacation is of the latter kind? Read on to find out!

If you are one of the guests making a trip down that does have special dietary needs, including kosher, vegetarian and medically-restricted meals (such as allergies to gluten or wheat, shellfish, soy, lactose or milk, peanuts, tree nuts, fish or eggs), your first task will be to choose where you would like to eat on property. Eating at a full-service restaurant will make it a lot easier to stick to your dietary needs, as Walt Disney World chefs can make your food separately, whereas at a quick service restaurant, the menus tend to include mass produced food items. If you are planning on eating at a full service restaurant, making a reservation will be the way to go – simply call (407) WDW-DINE to check dining availability and times and to book your reservation. At this time, you will also want to request your specific dietary need as well as inquire to the reservation host/hostess as to your options at that specific restaurant. If you make your reservation at least 24 hours in advance, your reservation will then include a special note about your request, giving the chefs and the restaurant ample time to accommodate you at this meal. You might also want to consider arriving early for your reservation to confirm your request as well as notifying your waiter/waitress immediately of your situation once you are seated inside.
If you have any specific questions about food at Walt Disney World prior to your arrival, you can also speak to a dietary specialist at each park’s food management department regarding specific ingredients in food and the best places to eat on property. You can reach the food management department by calling (407) 824-2222 and requesting to speak with someone who can help you.
