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.

Of course you know where you can find it in Adventureland at Aloha Isle (Disney World) and the Tiki Juice Bar (Disneyland) in the shadows of the Tiki Room (you can even bring your sweet treat inside to eat during the show!).
