I’ve got travel on the brain and I want to head someplace warm. Sure a beach is fine and dandy but I want to go to Disney World and a gluten free guide to ALL the parks would sure come in handy!! Well guess what, I’ve got it! Walt Disney World Food & Beverage has the Walt Disney World All Parks Gluten Free Guide. It takes you through all the parks and gives you a breakdown of each restaurant/eatery with what you can have to eat!
I definitely have to give Disney HUGE HUGE kudos on taking gluten allergies and other allergies seriously. Disney is where dreams come true and they are committed to making sure every guest has a magical time, no matter what allergy they may have. No one should be left out of feeling the pure Disney magic.
In 2011, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts received an award recognizing its leadership and commitment in the area of food-allergy awareness by the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network.
Disney’s journey from a provider of traditional food offerings to a leader in best practices for food allergies began 12 years ago when a Disneyland Resort chef received phone call from a mother concerned about gluten-free options for her child. Since that time, Disney has worked to craft an extensive food program that offers meals to suit the needs of guests with food allergies and other dietary preferences.
According to Disney network chief executive officer, Julia Bradsher, Disney’s Parks and Resorts operation has the most extensive program that she is aware of. She adds that the parks have “been doing this for quite some time, so I think they were ahead of the curve.”
Disneyland Resort recently set up a web page that lists comprehensive information to help guests make informed decisions about where they can find food in the parks meets their needs.
The company has also set up a special hotline number where park guests can call ahead with specific food requests. That number is 714-781-DINE. If you’re planning a trip to Walt Disney World and would like to call ahead to discuss special dietary needs, guests may call 407-824-5967. Certified executive chef Bill Orton says that “the resort helps thousands of visitors” with their dietary needs, and handles most needs immediately.
