Disney Trials New Allergy-Friendly Menus at Pilot Locations


Walt Disney World will trial at select locations new allergy-friendly menus at a range of restaurants during the next month.

Restaurants that will be taking part in the trial include:

  • Flying Fish Café at Disney’s BoardWalk
  • ABC Commissary, Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant and The Hollywood Brown Derby at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
  • Kona Cafe and Captain Cooks at Disney’s Polynesian Resort
  • World Premiere Food Court at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort.

The allergy friendly menu will mean that in some cases, it will no longer be necessary for a chef to visit the guest at the table, and instead selections can be made directly from the special menu. For any allergies that are not covered by the menu, or if the guest prefers to speak to a chef, that option will remain available.

The test is expected to run from September 9 through to October 20 2014.
