If you or someone in your party has special dietary needs, do not fear! Disney is EXCELLENT at accommodating whatever need you might have. Here is everything you need to know about special dietary needs on a Disney cruise:
If you are looking for gluten free, vegetarian, no sugar added, dairy free or light food options, these are already included on the menus onboard the Disney Cruise Ships.
If you have a severe or life threatening allergy, you need to call dietary services at (407) 566-3602 as soon as you book your cruise to let them know. They will work with you on how to best accommodate your dietary need.
Read over the official guidelines on dietary needs directly from Disney.
When we went on our cruise in 2015, I was dairy free and vegan (which vegan does mean dairy free as well) due to allergies in the child I was nursing. Disney was great at helping me figure out what I could eat at each restaurant. When I visited Cabanas (the buffet restaurant), a chef walked me around the buffet letting me know what foods were good for my needs.
