I was wondering if there would be an interest in setting up a peanut free holiday @ disneyland? I have not contacted any reps yet because I would like to know how many families would be interested (better to advise disney of the numbers)???? I also think this would be a great idea to get the word out about how severe peanut allergies are!!!!! My idea is 2 days @ disneyland for only invited guests - set up with suppliers for chapmans icecream - I would go ahead of time to have a talk with employee's about PA & about the safeguards required for the 2 days.

Disneyland in California right? Too far for us- but would have loved to hear your ideas if it was for Disney World in Florida.

When we were in the Magic Kingdom back in November, the chef at the Liberty Tree Tavern told me that the Magic Kingdom does serve any nuts in their restaurants. I'm not sure if that includes prepackaged items but it at least meant the food in the restaurants. This may not hold true in the other parks. Just Magic Kingdom.

Not sure if it would be disneyland or disneyworld....
I would have to wait and see if disney would agree to this or not.
Let me know which you would prefer or if it could be either. Time frame also not sure of as I know it may take some time for families to get funds together to go...
I want as many families to go as possible - so time frame could be 1 - 2 years - this way it could be promoted on news etc...

Are you thinking about a Disney park (Disneyland is closer for you- I see you are from Alberta Canada- me too) being closed to the public, but open for families/friends dealing with PA/TNA?
It sounds like a great idea in general- I wouldn't know where to start! Certainly, if it were promoted in the news, allergists offices etc it would get people's attention. And yes, families would need plenty of notice to start saving!

We would definitely plan on going if it was Disneyworld/Florida- we prefer to drive. California would be too far for us.

I would be very interested either WDW or DL. I live in CA but love to go to WDW. It would be great excuse to go. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
What about a disney cruise? They are very good with food allergies.
If you can actually acomplish this it would be a great why to bring awareness to food allergies! Maybe it could be an annual thing? What about during food allergy awareness week?
I am not sure that that either park would close for the day to do this. But, sometimes they do special after hours parties.
Have you yourself been to DL or WDW?

I went to DL about 20ish years ago. I did not realize at the time how severe my PA was.
Like most young PA's I thought my reaction would be like my spring time allergies...
This is another reason to bring out awareness as even some PA do not take it seriously ( young and nothing will happen to me )
Side note: song by Charlie Major " Can't happen to me " I cry every time I hear it

Are you saying that your idea is that only invited guests of the group would be allowed into Disneyland?
