Sarah's Disney Dining Tips

  • Research the Disney restaurants before your trip. Disney offers a wide variety of food choices, from quick service meals to elegant table service dining. Select your restaurants before you arrive.
  • Make dining reservations and note your food allergies.
  • Contact Disney (e-mail address listed below). Some dishes, like the fried chicken at the 50′s Prime Time Cafe, take time to prepare and advance requests are suggested.
  • On-site, tell the servers that you are on a special diet. The chef should come out to greet you before you place your order. If this doesn't happen, ask to speak to the chef or manager.

About Sarah Norris
A self-proclaimed Disney “junkie”, Sarah Norris began visiting Disney World with her family when she was two years old. In 2009, she learned she needed to avoid gluten and dairy. Soon after, she traveled to Disney and learned about their food allergy awareness.

Today she runs the blog Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free at WDW. Sarah resides only a hour and a half from Disney and dines there often.

About Donna Currie
Donna was born and raised and well-fed in the Chicago area, where she developed a love for interesting ingredients. When she moved to Colorado, she suffered from a lack of Chicago-style Italian sausage, gyros, and pierogi, among other things. So of course, she made her own – and then went on a mission to make as many things as possible from scratch – at least once.
