The Allergy-Friendly Food You Need To Eat at Walt Disney World

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!

The Ultimate Allergy Friendly Food Guide at Disney World

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 knowledgable cast members. I was genuinely surprised at the amount 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-frienly 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.

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!

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.

Tonga Toast
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!?

Kefta Sandwich
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!

Honorable mentions
• 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.

  2. So helpful! We recently stayed at Disneyland for 8 days and they were very accommodating and there were many options! I can’t say enough good things about the club level at the Grand Californian. Everything was labeled for allergies and they offered to make special things as requested.
