Some restaurants and quick-service locations within the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, now offer allergy-friendly menus on request.
These menus join the kosher and vegan options already often offered as part of the food menus in the resort.
“Over the years, the number of guests with food allergies and intolerances has continued to grow,” said Gary Jones, chef and culinary dietary specialist for Disney, on the Disney Parks Blog.
In 2013, employees assisted visitors with more than 650,000 special dietary requests, ranging from kosher or vegan meals to those free of wheat, gluten, peanuts, shellfish, etc.
New menus indicate which dishes are safe
Just like a typical menu, the allergy-friendly menu lists the name of the dish, its accompaniment and the price. A sentence on the bottom, though, lends additional info.
For example, on the bottom of the Carthay Circle’s mango sorbet dish, it says: “For gluten/wheat, egg, milk, peanut/tree nut, and soy allergies.” This tells people with those allergies that it is safe to eat that item.
Before the end of summer, Disneyland Resort will have 13 table service (sit-down) restaurants and 26 quick service locations offering the food allergy menus.
