I mean, is she the cutest or what?
Vivian and I are in Disney World with our families for a week-long vacation! While we are here, we are writing about some of our favorite places to eat, tips when dining in Disney, and the overall experience of being at the Most Magical Place on Earth with an allergy!
This is part 2 of a 4 part post series all about Disney, Disney, Disney! Read our first post about Epcot here.
Like I said in our previous post, the Disney cast members, chefs, and anyone who works for Disney World does an excellent job of being well informed about our allergy and taking all the precautions necessary to allow Viv and me to enjoy our trip to the fullest without any worries of a reaction. I even think I forgot that I had an allergy a few times, and for someone who deals with an allergy, you know that we never get a break from checking every little thing that we eat, so it was very nice!
I recommend making reservations for everywhere you’d like to eat because it gives the restaurant time to prepare for your arrival. And, when you are going to a restaurant with special requests it’s courteous to let the establishment know ahead of time, but I also just showed up at a few places (especially for lunch) and the service was the same. I also emailed Disney at firstname.lastname@example.org a few days before our trip (they ask you to email them at least two weeks ahead of when you are going if you have multiple allergies or more than one person in your party with allergies) and they emailed me an awesome list of most of the restaurants and parks on property and what they might have that is dairy-free. It was the perfect go-to when deciding where to eat and I often referred to it when ordering dessert. If I knew that a restaurant had Enjoy Life cookies on the list, then I would specifically ask for them for dessert.
In this blog post, we have decided to share our experience at Hollywood Studios (or MGM, as I will always call it in my heart). This is the movie park, centered around all the big Hollywood films, and also home to two of Disney’s biggest thrill-seeking rides: Rock N’ Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror.
My personal favorite things to do at this park are The Great Movie Ride, Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream exhibit, and Lights, Motors, Action!
