Just got back from Disney a week ago -
had almost no problems (I'll address the "almost" in a second). I had made priority seating arrangements at the following places - had mentioned Erin's peanut allergy when I made them and they were all in the computer when we arrived:

Cinderella's Castle (chef came out and talked to us - said meals were safe but stay away from desserts - which we always do anyway).

Liberty Tree Tavern (again, I talked to the chef and everything was safe (except desserts)

Park Fare at Grand Floridian - GREAT chef - very charismatic, friendly...came out and treated Erin like a princess...took her/us up to buffet and pointed out what she could have, which was basically everything - they did serve PB&J Uncrustables but those didn't concern me since they were separate from other foods and the PB was contained within the Uncrustable.

At Epcot - Garden Grill...wonderful again...Chef came out and told us everything was safe except one dessert

At MGM - Sci-Fi Dine-In Theatre, again great.

All the chefs were very knowledgeable about cross-contamination, etc.

The ONLY disappointment was at Riverside Mill at Port Orleans Riverside where we were staying. Riverside Mill is counter service and I asked the server if they used peanut oil - just to double check since I was told that Disney doesn't use peanut oil anywhere - and she just acted like it was going to be such a huge inconvenience to her to find out that I just said never mind. We wound up retreating to our room and ordering the WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE PIZZA from Sassagoula (sp?) Pizza at the resort.

We also ate at Columbia Harbour House (counter service) in Magic Kingdom, enjoyed Itzakadoozies throughout all the parks and ended every day with a Dolewhip from Aloha Aisle in Magic Kingdom. (What a treat for a little girl who can't normally have ice cream from ice parlors!)

It was a great, SAFE time!

The Fulton Crab restaurant in Downtown Disney uses peanut oil. I was vastly disappointed...I had called ahead (priority seating) and mentioned the PA, and was told to tell my server. Then I arrived and told the hostess; same thing - tell your server. Do you think one of these people might have pointed out, before we sat down, that they fry in peanut oil? YIKES!!! We stayed to eat, but I was a wreck. Very out of character (no pun intended) for a WDW restaurant! Too bad, the food was great.

are all the businesses in Downtown Disney Disney owned and operated? Take McDonalds, for instance?

I'm not sure; but it IS on WDW property. The Flying Fish restaurant in the Boardwalk area (which is great!!!) was typical Disney; chef came out and made the food for my DD, and told us what to avoid. I think Fulton was independently run until recently; maybe they'll get the kinks out.

Anyone here that could just give me a ruough estimate of what they think it would cost a family of 5 to eat on this trip. I would like someday to go but am clueless of what kind of money we would need to bring with us. Hope this isn't rude to ask and I know it is a bit of topic but let me know if you wish. Thank you claire.
