Ultimate Guide to Disneyland with Dietary Restrictions: Tasty Food Made Accessible for All!

Finding food at restaurants, much less a theme park, when you have dietary restrictions can be very difficult and very frustrating. But leave it to Disney to make eating with dietary restrictions at their Resort easy and delicious; after all, it is the Happiest Place on Earth. This all-encompassing guide is meant to help you and your family navigate the restaurant scene with ease and make Disneyland with Dietary Restrictions hassle-free!

Disney has gone above and beyond in this area in my opinion. They ensure that every single guest, regardless of dietary restriction or need, will have something delicious to eat. Speaking from personal experience, I can say that Disney went above my expectations in every way.

Special Accommodations Upon Request

As a vegetarian who happens to be allergic to cheese, finding food that suits my needs has always been a challenge. Recently, when visiting the Disneyland Park, I mentioned to a Cast Member at the Galactic Grill of my dietary restrictions. With absolutely no hesitation, she offered to call a chef to come help me with my meal. The chef came to the window and offered me a completely different item off the menu. On top of that, she waited with me and ensured that the food was prepared correctly and delivered to me properly. They also offered my gluten-free, vegetarian sister-in-law a beautiful salad with beans, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, and more! We felt so grateful that someone took the time to understand our needs.

Contact/Inform Guest Services

Disneyland chefs to help with your dietary restrictions.

In addition to special offerings that the chefs can make you, there is already plenty of delicious food around the park to help make Disneyland with dietary restrictions a non-issue. Most food at the quick service restaurants is made ahead of time so they aren’t able to modify a specific item; however, they are more than willing to help you find exactly what you need. Don’t feel shy about asking for a manager or a chef to ensure that you or your party member is taken care of properly. The Cast Members are very knowledgeable in this area and will be happy to offer assistance.

Lastly, another option is to email Disneyland Guest Services directly to discuss your specific needs. You can send any questions or concerns you may have to [email protected] and they will reply. The replies can take up to five business days, so if you’re going to use this option, be sure to do it well in advance of your visit.

NOTE TO GLUTEN-FREE PARK GOERS: You may notice that there aren’t any gluten-free options listed below. When I asked Disney through their guest services email about specific items, their response was as such: “Due to the large volume of meals we serve, vendors and suppliers frequently substitute products, update menu items, and change preparation methods. Therefore, to receive the most current information, we ask that you speak to a chef or manager when you arrive at each location. They will be happy to assist with your selection and provide product labels and ingredients for menu items.” 

Rest assured that there is plenty for you to eat at the parks. Most of the quick service restaurants have an easy swap of a regular bun for a gluten-free bun and if they don’t, the chefs will prepare for you a meal off of the regular menu to fit your needs. Also, Rancho del Zocalo Restaurante makes their tacos with corn tortillas for a delicious gluten-free meal. Be sure to check with any manager or chef at your dining location for options for you.

Below is a list of each of the restaurants at Disneyland that already have specific options on their general menu. You can use the key V for Vegetarian and VE for Vegan.  Click on the specific restaurant for the options on that menu. Restaurants listed with “Q” are quick service restaurants, those with “S” are snack locations, and restaurants listed with “T” provide table service.

Good luck finding the right spot for you, and happy eating!
