Special Dietary Needs
Requesting and Finding Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Vegan, Kosher, and Other Special Dietary Needs While at Walt Disney World
Are you vegetarian or vegan? Do you keep kosher, or do you have another special diet? Not to worry - you'll find that Walt Disney World is wonderfully accommodating of your food needs.
THE WORD FROM DISNEY: If you or someone in your party has special dietary needs, Disney recommends the following:
WALT DISNEY WORLD® Resort table service
restaurants that accept Advance Reservations can accommodate
special dietary needs (such as allergies to gluten
or wheat, shellfish, soy, lactose or milk, peanuts,
tree nuts, fish, or eggs).
1. When making an Advance Reservation (1-407-WDW-DINE), alert the Cast Member to your special needs, and they will make a note on the file.
2. Special dietary needs can be accommodated if requested at least 72 hours in advance at 407-WDW-DINE (no longer 24 hours). The more specific and individual your needs are, the more lead time the restaurant will require! This new time frame began in February 2005.
Traveling to WDW with Special Dietary Needs ?
NOTES: With only a few exceptions, WDW restaurants use only canola
oil in food preparation. Peanut oil, however, is used in
restaurants featuring Asian cuisine, because of its higher smoke
point. (This is an important consideration for items being stir-fried,
for example, as other oils tend to burn when used at such high temperatures.)
If you have specific inquiries or would like recommendations regarding the food served at the park restaurants, you are welcome to call the executive chefs or Food and Beverage managers, at the telephone numbers listed below. If no one is immediately available when you call, please be sure to leave a message and a telephone number where you may be reached.

BRINGING SNACKS INTO PARKS: As an exception to standard policy, guests who have specific food allergies are permitted to bring their own small snack items with them into the theme parks. However, picnic baskets, ice chests, and coolers are not permitted.
