Please note that the information, tips and suggestions in this section and throughout the website are not medical recommendations. We are not physicians, and even where we’ve included information from medical professionals, this information may not be complete, and may not be appropriate for your condition. Although we’ve worked hard to be accurate, we don’t guarantee the accuracy of any of the information. Your condition and your trip should be discussed thoroughly with your Physician before visiting Disney. If any medical issue arises during your trip, you should consult a physician. Also please consult Walt Disney World for up to date facts and recommendations. We’ve included numerous interviews with medical professionals. We greatly appreciate and respect their input, but we’re unable to endorse any medical professional or organization named on this website. We’re also including hospitals, clinics, health organizations, businesses and websites on this website and in this section. Again, we’re not endorsing any of them. We’re including all information for your research purposes only.
Also please note that Disney is in a constant state of change. If there’s something important you need to know in order to stay safe and healthy, please contact Disney in advance of your visit to request information and support, and double check that information once you’re there. Now let’s move forward!
Related to the information on this site for those with special dietary needs:
Disney is in a constant state of change. Verify everything! Do not rely on this website. This is here as a start-off point for your research and to give you a general idea of what to expect. If there’s something important you need to know in order to stay safe and healthy, please contact Walt Disney World in advance of your visit to request up-to-date information and recommendations, and double check that information. Once you’re there, do not rely solely on your advance research, on the contents of this book, or even on the word of a Disney cast member. Research and make your own educated decisions.
Though we’ve included links to various websites, businesses and products, we’re unable to endorse any of these, and we can’t vouch for the accuracy of their claims. We’ve included many products here that Disney has used in their restaurants, and has listed in their literature as free of certain allergens and substances. We’re unable to verify the purity of these products and we cannot endorse them as appropriate for those with allergies, special dietary needs and health issues. We’re also unable to guarantee that any of the products mentioned on this website will be available when you visit Disney World. So once again, do your research, and make your choices carefully.
Lastly, on the dietary guides that Disney gives to their guests, you’ll find the following statement (misspellings are theirs): “Walt Disney Parks and Resorts will use reasonable efforts to prevent the introduction of the allergen of concern into the food through close attention during our sourcing, preparation and handling process. However, it is ultimately up to the Guest to use his or her individual discretion to make an informed choice regarding whether to order or consume any particular item(s). Walt Disney Parks and Resorts cannot guarantee that allergens may not have been introducted during another stage of the food handling process, or even inadvertently during preparation. We do not have seperate kitchens to prepare allergenfree items or seperate dining areas for Guests with allergies or intolerances. Guests with food allergies or intolerances are allowed to bring food items into any Disney theme park or resort. Please inform the Security Cast Member at bag check that someone in the party has a food allergy or intolarance.”
So keep in mind that you eat at your own risk, and at any point in the process, there are things that could go wrong, so go prepared. In fact I recommend that you speak with your doctor and bring medication along with you wherever you go on your vacation, if that’s appropriate for your condition.
