Someone said they saw a show on the food network that said some of the theme parks including Dineyland/Disney Resort (among other theme parks) fry in peanut oil, but that it depends on which restaurant you are in within the parks. Did anyone see this? Or know anything about this practice?

I had been told they didn't use peanut oil. Maybe I have just been in the restaurants that don't use it.

deegann, are you going to a theme park in the near future?
If so, which one?

We go to Disnyland in Anaheim all the time. We have the So Cal annual pass.

We went to Disney World just over 2 years ago, and we encountered no peanut oil in the Disney-owned restaurants. However, there are restaurants that are not Disney-owned that are located in certain Disney parks and other Disney properties (like Downtown Disney).
For example, the Wolfgang Puck restaurant uses peanut oil. Also, the snack stand in the Canada section of Epcot was selling fried dough (they called it "beaver tails") that was fried in peanut oil.
But if you stick to Disney-owned restaurants, you won't have too much trouble in that regard. Just be sure to ask to speak to a manager or the chef, and they'll be able to answer your questions.

The food and beverage manager at Epcot warned me that some of the countries in World Showcase use peanut oil.

We live in Ohio and have season passes to Kings Island. We were informed that only one place in the park cooked with peanut oil but the rest used soy. There is also an Thai or Chinese restaurant in the park we avoid. We have gotten a lot of info. through the food service when we have asked about specific counter service and restaurants.

I have heard that the entire park at Canobie Lake in NH fries in peanut oil.
