DOWNTOWN DISNEY


Tortilla Jo’s

“I’ve eaten here so many times, and they’re great! Last October my dairy allergic boyfriend & I both ate there several times while visiting Disneyland. I felt listened to and well cared for. As far as I remember the mole sauce was one of the few things I had to avoid (mole sauce traditionally has peanuts). I especially recommend going in the morning or afternoon for your first visit as it tends to get packed right around dinner time.”

Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen

“They have peanut-free beignets you can grab on the way into or out of the park as well as boxed mixes you can buy to take home and make … We have had a great experience with my son’s anaphylactic peanut and shellfish allergy, as well as my husbands’ gluten intolerance. Let them know you have an allergy. Often, they will direct you to what is safe, have labels for reading, and will call a chef over if needed and possible (such as in sit-down restaurants).”

Naples Ristorante E Bar

“I have been here several times while at Disney. The servers are always very proactive and make me feel safe. I’ve safely eaten the pizza and some pasta dishes from here! I don’t recall many nuts at all!”

@alliecastro22, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Uva Bar & Cafe

“Dined here with my peanut and tree nut allergic daughter and nephew. No issues ordering and limited nuts. The manchego salad is the only item containing nuts (walnuts) on the menu.”

@lbedwell, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Black Tap

“They can make any of their shakes vegan, and it was the best shake I have ever had (I’ve had my fair share of ice cream). The manager was exceptional. I had ordered dairy free for allergies and chose chocolate oreo. He notified me that they used an off brand of Oreo, and it contained dairy. He refunded the topping and remade my shake for me. I was so thankful he saw my allergy on the order slip and went out of his way to help.”

Wetzel’s Pretzels

“I shared this before for another Wetzel’s: google their cross contamination PDF, so very helpful! They have warning for peanut, but it’s just from the almonds on two of their products. We just avoid their two almond products and continue eating at this establishment!”

@foodallergypi, who manages peanut and shellfish allergies


Sprinkles Downtown Disney

“They keep the vegan and gluten-free cupcakes separate from the regular cupcakes. They will get clean gloves and package those items separately. They also have all ingredients listed for all items. Very delicious!”

@allergyinspo, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, and seed allergies


La Brea Bakery Express

“We found dairy-free chicken tenders and sorbet. Delicious dinner on the go!”

@kegs1973, who manages a milk allergy


Splitsville Luxury Lanes

“This is a sushi & diner with a super fun bowling alley in Downtown Disney! The entire kitchen is free of nuts! They have a sushi menu, pizza, burgers, apps, and a bar! They were super proactive in asking about food allergies and let me know that the desserts have cross-contamination warnings for nuts but everything else on the menu was totally safe! The menu is labeled with “gluten-sensitive” labels which I would usually avoid but have found this is pretty common at Disney locations. They state that there is gluten in the kitchen, so they can’t guarantee there won’t be cross-contact, but they are fantastic at using dedicated prep areas, communicating allergies with the kitchen, and double checking ingredients. I had one of their gluten-free sushi rolls which was safe & delicious! Our receipt also came with my allergies printed on it! Highly recommend Splitsville if you’re in Downtown Disney! ”

Taqueria at Tortilla Jo’s

“Helpful allergen menu available. Staff took time to talk to me, understood my concerns, and was courteous.”

@skyarrish, who manages a peanut allergy


Earl of Sandwich

“No nuts in any sandwich items. They notified me that the prepackaged salads has nuts, but they’re put in containers offsite. Everything else on the menu was good to go!”

@corgiii, who manages tree nut allergies


Catal Restaurant

“This restaurant was really helpful with our food allergies, and the end result was delicious! They brought it out before the other food, and it was flagged.”

@allergyinspo, who manages peanuts, tree nut, milk, egg, and seed allergies


Salt and Straw

“Salt and Straw has very innovative flavors and at least 2-3 dairy-free options. I love that I can also eat the sugar cone! This is the only ice cream store that I’ve been to where this is true. The attendant asked if I had allergies (unprompted), and then used a clean scoop when I said I did.“

@amandayoung03, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, fish, and shellfish allergies


DISNEYLAND


Disneyland Park

“Disney is AMAZING with food allergies. All of the restaurants have allergy-friendly options. All of them! They have great protocol and training for allergies. We have been eating there for 5 years without an issue. Their food stands also have the ingredients available for the items they sell. It is so easy to find safe foods when we are there.”

@allergyinspo, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, and seed allergies


River Belle Terrace

“We had dinner reservations and noted our allergy on the reservation. It was confirmed by the hostess and our waiter. We were given an allergen-friendly menu. The meal was delivered and confirmed to be the allergen-friendly meal. A delicious strawberry sorbet was offered for dessert. Would eat here again! ”

@skyarrish, who manages a peanut allergy


Tiki Juice Bar

“Top 8 free Dole Whips (except for coconut). We have had a great experience with my son’s anaphylactic peanut and shellfish allergy, as well as my husband’s gluten intolerance.

@foodallergypi, who manages peanut and shellfish allergies


Alien Pizza Planet

“Located next to Space Mountain, Alien Pizza Planet has several pizza and pasta dishes that are all nut allergy safe! While their allergy-friendly mobile order doesn’t list many options, if you let the staff know you have allergies, they will have the chef meet with you and prepare you a safe pizza! They have gluten-free & vegan pizza crust alongside plant-based cheese. The pizzas are a little small, so I recommend also grabbing some safe snacks from somewhere else in the park. Although not nut-allergy safe, they also have gluten-free alien macarons!“

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and Celiac-gluten allergies


Galactic Grill

“A Disney trip favorite pit stop! I love going here for breakfast to start my day at Disneyland. Allergy menu and chef visit upon request. I love their hash brown breakfast sandwich, which is totally customizable. I don’t do buns in the park (due to possible cross-contamination), but instead do 2 hash browns as a bun for the sausage, egg, and cheese! So yummy and always safe.”

@lindseymroper, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Rancho del Zocalo Restaurant

“One of the least busy restaurants at Disney and in a quieter area! There are very few things with nuts, and they have a detailed allergen menu. Almost everything is also gluten-free. I love their tacos!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and Celiac-gluten allergies


Carnation Cafe

“Amazing allergy-friendly food in Disneyland on Main Street! They have gluten-free mickey waffles, allergy-friendly pancakes, top 8 free bread/rolls, you name it! It gets busy so definitely make reservations in advance, especially if you’re wanting to get breakfast/brunch! They definitely have more safe breakfast options than lunch/dinner but I’ve eaten here for both meals and always been able to find something on the allergy menu that sounded good! The staff also use allergy sticks to mark dishes which I always appreciate!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and Celiac-gluten allergies


Bengal Barbeque

“I’ve always safely eaten here! This is a snack stand across from the Indiana Jones Ride with meat & veggie skewers! I don’t think there are any nuts (was told this last time I checked), but I get all the skewers without sauce, as most of them contain gluten. I love the bacon wrapped asparagus and chicken skewers!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and Celiac-gluten allergies


Milk Stand

“Dairy free fun at Disneyland! Both the blue and green milk are made with rice milk and coconut! You can ask for ingredients there as well! ”

@allergyinspo, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, and seed allergies


Red Rose Taverne

“Red Rose Tavern is a great spot for a casual and quick lunch in Fantasyland. They have a variety of burgers, sandwiches, and lunch items, and offer allergy-friendly mobile order through the app. I love getting the burger on a gluten-free bun and gluten allergy safe french fries! I’m pretty sure nothing at this location contains nuts!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and Celiac-gluten allergies


French Market Restaurant

“They make ordering so easy! There are clear menu options for different allergies, and they will help you order as needed. Fast and easy, and the food was tasty too!”

@allergyinspo, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, and seed allergies


Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe

“One of my go-to stops in Disneyland! They do have a lot of pastries with nuts, but they have a dedicated prep area for preparing allergy meals! They will hand you the fantastic Disneyland allergy menus if you ask! Most of the lunch menu is nut-free, aside from one salad with pecans, and all bread can be subbed for their allergy-friendly bun to make it gluten free! I love getting their “toasted” cheese (on a gluten-free bun) and tomato soup! They also have allergy-friendly brownies & cookies that come individually wrapped from a separate company and are free of nuts, diary, and gluten!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and Celiac-gluten allergies


Cafe Orleans

“If you are looking for a fancy dinner in Disneyland, definitely make reservations at Cafe Orleans. Make sure to let your waiter know about your food allergies, and they will bring out an allergen menu as well as offer to have the chef help discuss safe options. Before the pandemic, Disney Dining services allowed you to call 48 hours before your reservation and request gluten-free bread be brought to the site for a gluten-free Monte Cristo sandwich! I am unsure if this is still available, but highly recommend inquiring about the sandwich when you make the reservation. They also have many other gluten-free options and very few nuts!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and Celiac-gluten allergies


Plaza Inn

“We had a reservation for character breakfast and noted our allergy on the reservation. It was confirmed by the hostess. While most people are instructed to head straight for the buffet, we were seated, and the chef came out to discuss allergies and desires. I was so impressed at what they brought my peanut-allergic son. Very excited that he still got to have “Mickey Waffles”. My other son had a jello cup with whipped cream from the buffet, and when we inquired if it was peanut safe, the staff checked and decided they were not confident in the whipped cream, so they brought him 2 cups of jello without the cream! I had full confidence in the staff and process, and we all had a great time. Lots of great character interactions as well. Totally worth the money.”

@skyarrish, who manages a peanut allergy


Blue Bayou Restaurant

“Arguably the most famous restaurant in Disneyland, Blue Bayou is located inside the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. If you are wanting to dine here, make sure to make reservations at least a month before your trip! They have an allergen menu that you can request when seated which details dishes safe for allergies. The food is delicious, many of the meals are gluten-free, and there are few nuts!”

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and Celiac-gluten allergies


Hungry Bear Restaurant

“This is another quick spot for burgers and fries located across from Splash Mountain. They have gluten-free & allergy-friendly burger buns, as well as gluten allergy safe fries and dairy-free cheese. Nothing on the menu contains nuts, but the impossible burger does contain coconut oil, so it is listed as unsafe for peanut/tree nut allergies. I have found their allergy-friendly mobile order is one of the easiest to use at the parks in terms of quickness!“

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and celiac-gluten allergies


Tropical Hideaway

“They do have seasonal items with nuts (specifically peanuts), so I avoid everything here but the dole whip. It comes out of its own machine and never touches any shared surfaces. I feel pretty safe, but always ask the staff to change gloves to be on the safe side! They have pineapple, mango, raspberry, and lemon, and all the flavors are top 8 allergen free!“

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and celiac-gluten allergies


CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE


Disney California Adventure Park

“Absolutely love Disneyland/ CA adventure. They are extremely accommodating with allergies and go above and beyond to ensure safety. Not only that but the vendors will also allow you to look at ingredients on packages to ensure you are safe. The shops have also recently partnered with Enjoy Life and added some top 8 safe treats. “

@lifewithitchy, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, and legume allergies


Carthay Circle Restaurant

“They can handle gluten allergies for my sister-in-law, and even offer separate baskets of gluten-free bread if you ask. Their menu offers safe choices for a variety of allergens, but they can make anything you need if you ask. Always helpful!“

@allergyinspo, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, and seed allergies


Wine Country Trattoria

“When we arrived, the waitress who seated us and our server were already aware of my allergies through our reservations. He confirmed what my allergies were and handed me a detailed allergy menu that appeared to have no dishes with nuts on it! I chose the gluten free spaghetti bolognese. The server then asked if I wanted gluten-free bread for the table, confirmed with the kitchen, and brought out a HUGE plate of warm gluten-free bread rolls. He gave me my own personal cup of oil and vinegar to avoid cross contamination with my boyfriend’s gluten bread. The pasta was so light and tasted delicious! Everything I ate also came out with an allergy marker!“

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and Celiac-gluten allergies


Poultry Palace

“The chicken legs here are gluten-free! They also have really good corn on the cob! No nuts at the stand. Located on Pixar Pier next to the Toy Story Mania ride & perfect for a quick snack between rides.“

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and Celiac-gluten allergies


Flo’s V8 Cafe

“Had a great time dining at Flo’s V8 Cafe in Car’s Land! There are no nuts on the menu although the staff do alert that the impossible burger is not tree nut allergy safe as it contains coconut, but is fine for me! They have gluten-free buns & a dedicated fryer just for fries, and my meal came with an allergy stick! We waited in line to order so I could explain my allergies, but there is also the option to use the allergy-friendly mobile order through the Disney app. Their milkshakes are also nut allergy safe, just make sure to ask for no cookie crumbles on top if you are gluten-free! It’s so fun to get dinner here and watch the sunset over Radiator Springs!“

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and Celiac-gluten allergies


Cozy Cone Motel

“There are 5 cones with different snacks/drinks/menus! Some cones are safe & others are not. I love getting their apple slushees in the fall & the vodka lemonades during the spring from the popcorn cone! The popcorn is also safe for my allergies. They also have a mac & cheese cone which unfortunately is not safe for my gluten allergy but is nut allergy safe! I avoid the ice cream cone with my severe peanut allergy. I was able to have ice cream here safely in the past, but unfortunately they added crushed peanuts as a topping to the menu about a year ago. The kitchen is extremely small and messy, and all the toppings are in the same area, so I really don’t feel safe getting ice cream here. Definitely double check the toppings menu at the ice cream cone to see if anything contains your allergens before ordering anything, as it is all in the same prep area!“

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and Celiac-gluten allergies


Smokejumpers Grill

“I’ve eaten here on numerous Disney trips! They have a well rounded allergen menu and are consistent in providing an allergy-friendly experience. If you ask, you can speak with the chef. The entire restaurant is peanut/tree nut free, but the burger buns are “made in a facility”. The chef was more than happy to prepare my meal himself (everytime) in a clean prep area, new gloves, and even a new batch of fries! I got the bacon cheeseburger on a lettuce wrap (he even got me toppings from the back). Amazing experience!“

@lindseymroper, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Cocina Cucamonga Mexican Grill

“Cocina Cucamonga is a Mexican grill in the Pacific Wharf area between Car’s Land and Pixar Pier. The entire kitchen is completely gluten-free! It is usually pretty busy during lunch time, so I order using the allergy-friendly mobile order to avoid the line. I like getting any of their street tacos and the lime-cilantro rice. Definitely try to get a table in the Pacific Wharf area before ordering because they fill up quickly.“

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and Celiac-gluten allergies


Señor Buzz Churros

“These are peanut-free! We have had a great experience with my son’s anaphylactic peanut and shellfish allergy.”

@foodallergypi, who manages peanut and shellfish allergies


Corn Dog Castle

“Corn Dog Castle is peanut and shellfish-free and has labels if you’d ask to read them. We have had a great experience with my son’s anaphylactic peanut and shellfish allergy, as well as my husband’s gluten intolerance.

@foodallergypi, who manages peanut and shellfish allergies


Lamplight Lounge

“Waitress was very helpful! Checked to see if dairy was in the tuna poke, and there was some crème fraîche added to the guacamole in the dish. Also the restaurant had a allergy menu stating which dishes were allergen-free. Great dining experience!“

@jennaynutrition, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, and Celiac-gluten allergies


Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats

“This is a frozen treats kiosk in Disney’s CA Adventure on Pixar Pier. Everything on the menu does not contain nuts! They have vanilla and chocolate soft serve, which both contain dairy, and dole whip lemon soft serve, which is top 8 free! Anything can be put in a cup or a cone and has the option to be dipped in melted white chocolate—I didn’t ask about chocolate cross-contamination but instead just avoided. Instead, I got the Pixar Pier frosty which is blue raspberry icee mixed with lemon soft serve! It was delicious! From what I could tell for those with dairy allergies, the dairy containing flavors had their own machine – they made the dairy-free frosty treats on the other side of the counter where the icee and dedicated lemon soft serve machine were located. Although it was a small kitchen, their cross contamination-protocol was great, and I felt totally fine eating a delicious, safe treat!“

@emsnutfreeeats, who manages peanut, tree nut, wheat, and Celiac-gluten allergies


Storyteller’s Cafe

“We have had a great experience with my son’s anaphylactic peanut and shellfish allergy as well as my husband’s gluten intolerance. Let them know you have an allergy. Often they will direct you to what is safe, have labels for reading, and will call a chef over if needed.“

@foodallergypi, who manages peanut and shellfish allergies


RESORTS + HOTELS


Grand Californian Hotel & Spa

“Allergy-friendly and allergy-aware! Top 8 allergy-friendly staff, concierge, and room service. Within close walking distance of park if need breaks for naps, food in hotel, etc.“

@foodallergypi, who manages peanut and shellfish allergies


Disneyland Resort

“Many of the restaurants have an allergy menu which is very helpful for people with food allergies. The menu specifically shows which dishes are safe for you depending on the food you’re allergic to. Also, the customer service team is great and very well-trained. My kid was planning to go to Disneyland with his friend’s family, (which means I wouldn’t be there) so I wanted to speak to an employee who is knowledgeable about how food allergy is taken care of at Disneyland. I called at the last minute, but they returned my call the day before my kid’s arrival even though it was late in the evening. The employee who called back was well informed of the situation, and I felt confident about sending my kid to Disneyland without me.”

@tanuki, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Holiday Inn Express

“Refrigerator and microwave in room.“

@jp, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Park Vue Inn

“Shortest possible distance to Disneyland without staying onsite. Nice renovated rooms. Small convenience store open late. Very clean. The best thing for us was the in-room refrigerator has a separate actual freezer compartment! Just what we needed to refreeze ice packs after a long drive. They allowed us to leave our car all day on checkout day while we were at Disneyland, and they also stored our heat sensitive items in lobby luggage room.“

@skyarrish, who manages a peanut allergy


The Anaheim Hotel

“This is a cute hotel that’s only a 2 minute walk to Disneyland! It was super clean, COVID-friendly, and had a fridge in the room. It’s not Disney-themed like some of the other hotels on the street, but it was pretty inexpensive, and the closer walk was a huge plus! They have a pizza restaurant called Pizza Press attached to the hotel. While we didn’t eat there, they looked like they had GF crust & vegan cheese, and very limited nuts (seemed to be like Mod/Blaze/Pieology)! We are staying here again on our summer Disneyland trip!“
