Guest Review: Disney World Snack Adventures With Peanut and Tree Nut Allergies

Join me in welcoming guest reviewer, Corinna. Corinna is a Food Allergy Consultant and mother of 2 beautiful girls who both have severe food allergies. She loves to travel with her family and Disney has been a big part of her travels for many years from Disneyland to Walt Disney World to Adventures by Disney. This post was inspired by her most recent visit to Disney World in April 2018. Read on…

Disney World Snack Adventures with Peanut & Tree Nut Allergies

We were able to do a dream trip to the Walt Disney World Parks for spring break. Let’s just say it was a busy week, but oh so awesome! Our family of four had the time of our lives discovering the happy Disney atmosphere, the rides, and of course the FOOD.

In our family, we LOVE Disney because they are really good about offering safe options for those with food allergies. In this post, I thought I would share some of the absolutely delicious snacks we found that are safe for peanut and tree nut allergies.

Keep in mind that you should always check whether a snack continues to be safe and if it’s safe for your allergies, because things can change at any time. Disney provides an “allergy binder” or “allergy menu” at every food station that shows the ingredients of every item and what the allergens are. We got used to asking to see the allergy binder before we bought & ate anything.

First of all when you’re at Disney, you won’t find many baked goods that are safe for peanut and tree nut allergies.  But fear not, there are lots of other goodies that will fill your sweet snacking tooth! Here are a few of them…

Churros at Magic Kingdom

Even though baked goods safe for guests with peanut and tree nut allergies are not plentiful, this one makes up for it by itself! The flavor of cinnamon and sugar surround a crisp, cake-like batter. You can find churros at several of the small food stands scattered throughout the Parks. Yum!

Additional churros can be found these Walt Disney World locations: Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, Dino Diner, Anaheim Produce, Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies, Cool Ship, Storybook Circus Pretzel Cart, and The Lunching Pad.

Funnel Cakes with Ice Cream at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

So what’s better than a baked good? A baked good with ice cream! Safe ice cream can be difficult to find for people with peanut and tree nut allergies in general, which is why this treat is so special. It combines two hard-to-find goodies into one over-the-top treat. This goodie is especially perfect to cool you down in the heat of the day, and you can find it at Oasis Canteen.

If you’re touring other areas of Walt Disney World, you’ll find more funnel cakes on the menu at the Funnel Cake Stand in Epcot’s American Adventure Pavilion, Sleepy Hollow Refreshments, and the Funnel Cake Kiosk along Disney’s BoardWalk.

Violet Lemonade at Epcot

We were lucky to be at Disney during Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival which runs until May 28, 2018. During this time there are additional “outdoor kitchens” throughout World Showcase. One of the outdoor kitchens we visited was Pineapple Promenade.

Not only could you get Dole Whip here but they also had a selection of unique and refreshing drinks. We opted for the allergy-friendly violet lemonade. Complete with a gorgeous and edible violet right on top!

Dole Whip at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

In our family, a vacation to Disney isn’t complete without consuming copious amounts of Dole Whip. My kids were talking about it for quite awhile before we went. Which is why Tamu Tamu Refreshments in the Africa area of Disney’s Animal Kingdom was such a welcome sight for us. It was an easy decision; Dole Whip it is!

Need more Dole Whip? This tasty treat can also be found around Walt Disney World at Aloha Isle, Pineapple Lanai, Barefoot Pool Bar (served with rum), Marketplace Snacks, and Everything Pop food court.

When you think of Tomorrowland in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, visions of Space Mountain, the Carousel of Progress, and Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin likely come to mind… and I don’t blame ya! But even though Tomorrowland is home to some stellar attractions, it’s also home to some terrific eats. You may even run across a certain singing alien who may serenade you while you dine! (And here’s a tip: if you’re looking for specialty coffee, but want to avoid the morning rush at the Main Street Bakery, Tomorrowland’s got you covered there, too). So join us today in Tomorrowland!

Friends, it might be summer in the rest of the country, but at Walt Disney World, Autumn is ON!

Review: Raspberry Smoothie at Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies

Do you remember, by chance, how much we loved the Iced Coffee Float at Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies?

If not, then lemme tell ya. We loved it a LOT. But since there’s a new sipping spot/coffee joint in Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland with Joffrey’s Revive Coffee Kiosk, the offerings at Auntie Gravity’s (also located in Tomorrowland) have changed up a bit.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I think Joffrey’s Revive is a terrific addition to Magic Kingdom. But I have to admit I was bummed to find that one of the subsequent changes was the removal of Iced Coffee Floats from Auntie Gravity’s.

So, with that, it’s time to find a different sipper from Auntie (who still serves up soft-serve ice cream, too, by the way).

Fortunately, she still has a few tricks up her sleeve, as Auntie Gravity’s is one of the few spots where you can find Smoothies, available in Raspberry or Strawberry. [Read more…]

Review: Iced Coffee Float at Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies

It’s a hot afternoon in the Magic Kingdom. Ice cream is calling your name, but you’re also in need of a little caffeine jolt. Well, I’ve got just the treat for you… today we’re checking out the Iced Coffee Float at Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies!

Auntie Gravity's Galactic Goodies

Not familiar with Auntie? It’s OK — lots of people just walk right by on their way from Fantasyland to Tomorrowland.

You can find this spot in Tomorrowland across from the Tomorrowland Speedway. The menu features – as the outdoor sign indicates – smoothies and ice cream. You can read our review of both a smoothie AND an ice cream sundae here!

It’s also an easy place to grab a piece fruit or a muffin before your race to Space Mountain in the morning.

The Iced Coffee Float has been on my “To Try” list for a while, but I must confess to rarely stopping at Auntie’s, typically in favor of visiting Sonny Eclipse at Cosmic Rays’s or grabbing a Gourmet Cake Cup at Cheshire Café. But one day I was particularly in need of a caffeine boost, so I strolled in to Galactic Goodies to place my order.

You’ve got two choices to make upon ordering your Iced Coffee Float. First, the Iced Coffee: French Vanilla, Mocha, or Latte (the Latte, while still being “lightly sweetened,” is the least sweet of the bunch). Second, the ice cream: Vanilla, Chocolate, or Twist soft serve.

I walked out to the casual seating area…

Review: Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies in Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland

It’s time to take an ice cream break! And I know just the place — Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom!

This cool spot offers up soft serve for guests who are looking for a little refreshment between attractions…but they have some other fun menu items too! Time to check it out.

Atmosphere

Auntie Gravity’s is located in that thoroughfare that meshes Fantasyland into Tomorrowland. You’ll find this little spot directly across from the Tomorrowland Speedway.

The signage with the name of the location hangs on the wall of the building — viewable only from the Fantasyland side.

Auntie Gravity's Galactic Goodies

So if you’re searching for Auntie Gravity’s and coming from Tomorrowland, keep a look out for the ginormous “Ice Cream and Smoothies” sign that hangs overtop both doors leading into the shop.

There’s not a lot of atmosphere to speak of in the small space! There’s just enough room for a few counter-service stands and a walk-up window to get your goodies.

Auntie Gravity's Galactic Goodies -- Outside

Once you get your eats, you’ll head back outside to a group of tables just beyond the doorway. Keep on the look-out for PUSH, the talking trash can in this area! (You can also take advantage of indoor seating at Cosmic Rays, which is just next door.)

Eats

Auntie Gravity’s is purely a snack stop, so it’s great for a midday treat or after meal dessert most of the time. But one of the more unique options you’ll find here is the Iced Coffee Float, a fan favorite. I’ve only seen these at a few other locations, like Sunshine Tree Terrace.
