Poly-allergic, our advice for eating safely at Disneyland Paris. Allergies and eating out are sometimes difficult to reconcile, and this can quickly turn into the anxiety of “how can I eat without taking risks?
Disneyland Paris is committed to providing a wonderful experience right down to our plates, even for people with single or multiple food allergies.
When you arrive at one of the restaurants in Disneyland Paris or Disney Village, there are several options available to you, depending on your food allergies/intolerances. Whatever the case, tell your waiter about your allergy(ies) as soon as you arrive at the restaurant. There’s nothing more to do, except to make a table reservation in advance, which is highly recommended (reservations are possible 2 months before your visit, on the mobile application, or by calling 01 60 30 40 50 (price of a local call).
Poly-allergic, Breakfast at Disneyland Paris:
- 1st possibility: Choose a dish from the menu, without major allergens, by referring to the information booklet that the restaurant makes available to you on request from your waiter.
If you opt for this solution, be careful, the risk of possible cross-contamination cannot be totally ruled out, of course.
- 2nd possibility: a range of special products is available (gluten free, and/or milk and lactose free, and/or egg free), at no extra cost. As these items are not available in the usual buffet, please ask a manager to arrange for them.
All information on the special products offered is available here.
Poly-allergic lunch and/or dinner, at Disneyland Paris:
- 1st possibility: Choose a dish from the menu, without major allergens.
Vegetarian dishes are offered in all restaurants, which can be identified on the menu by the mention: “Vegetarian suggestion”, some also offer vegan and gluten-free options. Ask for the table of allergens present in the menu items.
If you are like me the kind of person who anticipates a lot of things, the restaurant maps are visible on the mobile application, and on the Disneyland Paris website, allowing you to already target the dishes you could eat once you are there.
At the bottom of each menu, you will find this mention “Dear allergic visitors, we hold at your disposal a collection of information on the presence of allergens in our dishes, do not hesitate to ask for it to one of the restaurant managers.”
If you opt for this solution, once again, the risk of possible cross-contamination cannot be completely ruled out.
