Eating out for people with food allergies or intolerances is hard. You can never be sure if there will be cross contamination or if the restaurant staff is knowledgeable enough about food allergies and intolerances to prepare a safe meal. That being said, Walt Disney World is one of the easiest place anywhere to eat out for the ‘dietarily’ restricted person. They take your dietary restrictions seriously and a manager or chef is always available to discuss menu options with you.
But starting today eating at Disney World just got even easier!! Disney’s Animal Kingdom has opened a special kiosk to stop at and find out the best food locations to meet your needs – although it is still important to speak with a manager or chef at each individual restaurant to ensure your meal is prepared properly.
The Gardens kiosk is located on Discovery Island next to Adventurers Outpost and will be open daily from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. (Adventurers Outpost is in the former Beastly Bazaar merchandise location, on the east side of Discovery Island along the path toward Asia)
Not only will you be able to stop and chat about the best way to get a good meal even with your food allergies or intolerances (such as gluten/wheat, lactose/dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, soy, fish, eggs, and corn) but you will also be able to pick up some snacks.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom is currently the only location with a dietary restrictions kiosk in it but I am sure if it goes well and it is well received by the guests they will start popping up in more locations.
Happy Dining and Snacking!!!!!
