I am taking my 4 year-old, peanut-allergic son to Disney from Boston. He is very sensitive - even to touch - if someone else is eating peanuts and he touches their hands he will have a reaction. Which airlines offer peanut-free flights? Any information, good or bad will be appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi barbara!
I also have a four year old boy and we are going to Disney for my husband's business in two weeks. My advice is this:
*check United Airlines-they told me that they do not serve peanut snacks as of February 1999. We have chosen to fly with them.
*If not, fly early morning, as to avoid peanut snacks.
*Put a sheet over your son's seat to avoid contact on the seat.
*Board early and wipe the seat armrests, tray, and surrounding area before your son boards----My motto is that you can never have enough handi-wipes.
These are all just suggestions- this will be my first time flying with my four year old. I am also very nervous and I hope these suggestions can help in your preparation. Remember, we're all in this together!
GOOD LUCK!

Barbara,
Did you go to Disney yet. We are set to leave Wed. morning and I wondered if you had gone yet? Did you receive any new advice? Thanks!

Carrie,
I just got back from Disney a month ago. Are you staying in a Disney hotel? If so, I wanted to warn you about the food courts. We stayed at Dixie Landings and all the food stands except the pizza stand sold pbj sandwiches. In addition, peanuts in the shell were sold at the check out counters. We did not go back there after the first night because I felt too unsafe about cross contamination. We ate at the full service restaurant at the hotel, and felt safe there as we saw no peanut items on the menu and asked about the ingredients of the kids meals and were told they were peanut free. If you need any more info, let me know.
