Allergy-friendly food at Disney World. Traveling to Walt Disney World with food restrictions can cause stress and uncertainty, but have no fear, The Mouse knows what he's doing!
If you're planning an upcoming trip to Walt Disney World, I'm sure you've thought of dining and food options. I know the thought has crossed your mind if you have food allergies or sensitivities. No need to stress, Disney has us covered!
Traveling with food restrictions can cause stress and uncertainty, but The Mouse knows what he's doing. Regardless of your food allergies, sensitivities, or preferences, Disney World has special allergy-friendly menus and knowledgeable cast members. I was genuinely surprised at the number of food options they have for those who can't have gluten, nut, soy, dairy, and egg.
First things first, make sure you always tell the cast member if you have an allergy or allergies and ask to see the allergy-friendly menu. They will either hand you a standard looking menu or show you a binder with all the ingredients in each meal. Often times a manager or chef will come out and walk you through your options or use their creativity to bring magic to your plate.
After sharing the allergy-friendly menus throughout Disney World, I'm now sharing the best allergy-friendly food at WDW! In no order, here are my most recommended meals, snacks, and treats.
I love my lunch bowls, that's a fact. I was thrilled when we found this spot in Pandora! We actually ate here on three different days haha – what can I say, when I find something I like I go all in. I always ordered the chili spiced crispy tofu but I changed up my base and dressing. My favorite order was the tofu bowl with red and sweet potato hash with charred green onion vinaigrette.
Where to find it: Satu'li Canteen at Animal Kingdom
P-I-Z-Z-A, I want pizza!
After a long day of walking and baking in the sun, what's more satisfying than a giant personal pizza? Surprise, we ate here twice during our stay! You can completely customize your pizza however you'd like. And yes, they have vegan cheese! I totally loaded up on the allergy-friendly cheese and toppings!
Where to find it: Blaze Pizza at Disney Springs
Chicken Breast Nuggets
These nuggets are life-changing. No, really!! When we visited Magic Kingdom last year, I tried these babies for the first time and I genuinely thought they were the real deal. I will always order these when visiting – they're that great! Chicken tenders and strips are available at the other parks as well, but these come out on top.
Where to find it: Cosmic Rays at Magic Kingdom
Wow, this was an unexpected meal but man am I glad I tried it! Leading up to this trip, all I wanted were Mickey Waffles but when we got to breakfast and I looked over the allergy-friendly menu, I couldn't not order banana stuffed french toast... Could you!?
Where to find it: Kona Cafe at Disney's Polynesian Resort
We love Moroccan and Mediterranean food so it's no surprise that we loved our lunch platter. After talking with the chef and manager, I decided to get the kefta sandwich rather than the falafels. The flavor was so spectacular and authentic!
Where to find it: Tangierine Cafe (Morocco) at Epcot
• Tacos from Pecos Bill's at Magic Kingdom: Filling and tasty, plus you can't beat an unlimited toppings bar!
• Dole Whip from Aloha Isle at Magic Kingdom: Fan favorite, nothing says you're on vacation at Disney quite like a Dole Whip! These are offered throughout a few parks and resorts.
• Mickey Pretzels offered throughout the parks: Salty, tasty, pillowy, and surprisingly filling for a snack! Your Disney trip isn't complete without a Mickey Pretzel.
Make sure to stick around, I'll be sharing all the food I ate throughout the parks at Orlando's Walt Disney World Resort!
