I haven’t posted in a while but would like to add some updates based on a recent trip and comment on some announcements made by Disney.

 

Allergy Friendly MenusPancakes and Mickey Waffles

You may have already heard that Disney announced new allergy friendly menus that will roll out in the coming months. Each menu will list the allergen content for each food item, making informed choices easier. In many cases, it will eliminate the need to speak to the chef, which can take a while when the parks are busy.

You can still request to speak to the chef if you feel the need. The menus reflect the most common allergens so if you are dealing with allergies to things other than gluten/wheat, milk, peanut, tree nut and fish, you may want to speak to the chef. You may also want to speak to the chef if you are worried about cross contamination at a buffet and want to request that the chef make something special.

Chef Mickey’s restaurant is located in Disney’s Contemporary Hotel, just a short monorail ride from the Magic Kingdom. At Chef Mickey’s, you will meet various Disney characters as you dine. We met Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto. They serve breakfast and dinner; both are buffets.

Chef Mickey and other characters meet and greet diners.

It is well worth noting that if you are worried about cross-contamination at a buffet, you can ask the chef to make something special. Read the rest of this entry »
