For picky eaters like me (Pickyman) and those with allergies like my wife (Allergy Girl) the food options at Walt Disney World and Disneyland can seem like Super Villains! Counter service, Kiosks, and other Vendors seem to form a dastardly team filled with bland offerings and dangerous alternatives. But all is not lost!
Pickyman and Allergy Girl have super powers, and as we’ll see, stalwart allies waiting to be called in when the battle for good, safe food starts to go awry.
First, let’s look at the danger facing the particular Pickyman: Selection. Walt Disney World is the worst offender in this area, as Disneyland offers more overall options, or at least tries to rearrange the standard chicken and burgers into something that at least appears new and fresh.
Super Power: Flexibility. In a pinch, Pickyman can try something new!
Second, let’s identify the danger attacking the health and well-being of the amazing Allergy Girl: Gluten. This opponent is very formidable because it’s everywhere! But your arch nemesis might be sugar, MSG, wheat, soy, eggs, or nuts. Or maybe you’re Vegan Gal with a completely different set of challenges. No matter which of these villains you fear, one fact remains the same: They can be hiding anywhere, ready to cause minor or severe physical problems.
Super Power: Vigilance. Allergy Girl never lets her guard down!
But don’t despair Food Super Friends! As I mentioned earlier, we have powerful allies to help us eat well and stay healthy at Walt Disney World and Disneyland. Let’s meet them now:
This powerful tool-based soldier can give you the advanced intel you’ll need to prepare in advance for any food attack during your vacation. Check the official Disney websites to read menus and get contact information. Calling ahead and talking to chefs can almost eliminate nasty sneak attacks later on. But don’t forget the fan-based Blogs where you’ll find firsthand accounts of other Food Super Friends who have already defeated the forces of Ick and Bloating!
Upon arriving at Walt Disney World or Disneyland, head to this ever-updating source of intel. You can’t have too much intel! Usually they’ll have a list of food spots that can cater to your particular allergy needs, and if not, they can direct you to an ally that does.
This powerful ally has the ability to be in hundreds of places at once. Whereas Private Prep stays at Home Base, and City Hallmatron has to be visited, Cast ReMember is out there on the battlefield fighting alongside you from Park open to Park close. You’ll never find a more loyal ally! Mention your preferences or allergies and they’ll immediately jump into action, calling to mind a plethora of tasty and suitable food options.

No matter which Park you choose, the best way to find good variety and safe food options is to eat mainly at sit-down restaurants. Restosaurus has imbued these fortresses with the latest in food preparation techniques and professional, dedicated chefs. They’ll cater to any palette or problem with courtesy, expediency, and… supernessness.
