Disney World continually seeks ways to help guests with food allergies feel more at ease during their travels. If you or any member of your traveling group has a food allergy, you may be interested to hear about a current test underway at a few dining locations in Disney World.
For a limited time, select Disney World restaurants are offering menus specifically geared towards those with food allergies to allow ease of ordering directly from the menus. Test locations at the resorts include World Premiere Food Court at All Star Movies Resort, Flying Fish Café at Disney’s BoardWalk, and Kona Café and Captain Cook’s at the Polynesian Village Resort.
In these beginning phases, ABC Commissary’s menu focuses solely on Gluten-Free items. With the exception of the Chicken Tenders, the items are gluten-free versions of choices available on the regular menu.
(By the way, please forgive the light reflection on the Kids’ Menu portion, which effectively removed the word “Gluten” from view. They aren’t “Free Kids’ Meals” . )
These menus are in testing for a limited time, so availability may vary during your travel dates. And, as always, guests will still have the opportunity to speak to Disney chefs regarding questions or concerns.
But it will be interesting to learn if this test expands in any way, and we’ll look forward to sharing more about the ways Disney continues to make travel and dining for those with allergies more comfortable.
