We just returned for Disney 12-30-00. We ate at Chef Mickey(Contemporary Resort for character Breakfast),Crystal Palace(Magic Kingdom for Character Lunch)Restaurantosaurus(Animal Kingdom for Character Breakfast),Liberty tree tavern(Magic kingdom for Lunch and Supper). They were all great. I called ahead and my reservations and told them about My sons PA and egg and Tomatoe allergies. They made sure that the chef at these places new we were coming. I was told to ask for the chef when we arrived and the chef came to our table and made lucas feel like his was a King. They made him his on very special food. I did not worry a bit about him while be were there. I felt like they really cared about lucas and us. The chef's were GREAT [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Hi Tina, We were at Disney the same time as you! I was impressed to find that all of the food places throughout the Disney parks had a large notebook with everthing they sold at that particular eating place. If you even had a question about the bun, they looked it up and let you read every ingredient! And if they didn't know, they called on their radio to find someone who did know! We also felt safe at the Liberty Tree Tavern (near Pinnochio). We ate at the Goofy character breakfast. I can't remember the name of the hotel, but it was near Epcot. I think it was Cape May or something, they had a beach theme. They were excellent! The chef came out and walked me through the buffet and told me brand names (they use Kellogg's cereals) and ingredients. Meggie's allergy is PA/TN, and they keep the nut rolls separate from everything else. It was excellent!
Also, if you ever go off Disney property, the Olive Garden is excellent. We ate at the one near Downtown Disney, and again, the chef came out to talk with us and answered every question! We also ate at the Pizza Hut, TGIF, and Planet Hollywood (all Downtown Disney).
The Disney area is definitely allergy aware!

good to hear! we are leaving in 8 days and will be staying at the contemporary. we have a character breaksfast booked for the first morning we are there at chef mickeys. I am a little concerned about the character dinner I booked at Crystal Palace as I see they serve pb&j at the kids buffet but I will call and see if its safe first. ALso, if the kids freak at the big characters at chef mickeys I can safelyl skip all other character meals anyway LOL!!

Mom2Mom-We had a great dining experience at the Crystal Palace in November. We did the character lunch and the chef came to our table and walked us through the buffet. I had a question mid-meal on a food and he came out a 2nd time to help us out. We did not eat any dessert there, as I felt that was too risky.
We also had a great experience at the HoopDeDoo Review at Fort Wilderness. The chef there was also wonderful!
