 Walt Disney World Dining: 

Special Requests and Character Dining  

Fish of the Day at the Living Seas restaurant 

Special Dietary Requests 

Table Service:  Always include your special dietary needs when you make a reservation with Disney Dining. A chef will come to your table to review your options. It’s great! 

Quick Service Locations that can accommodate Special Dietary Requests 
Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park:
- Restaurantosaurus
- Flame Tree Barbecue

Disney's Hollywood Studios Theme Park:
- Backlot Express
- Studios Catering Co.
- ABC Commissary
- Pizza Planet

 Epcot Theme Park:
- Liberty Inn
- Sunshine Season
Magic Kingdom Theme Park:
- Cosmic Ray's Starlight Café
- Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Café
- Main Street Bakery
- Columbia Harbor House
- The Pinocchio Village House

My experience at Liberty Inn was that they had a special binder that listed all the ingredients in all the items offered at Liberty Inn. Then they had special menus where guests could order from a special allergen free kitchen. You should expect a longer wait for these items because they are prepared to order in a different kitchen. 

For more information on special dietary requests, you can check the Disney website.

Character Dining

Make a reservation to dine while the characters circle the dining room. Your child will get a chance to get a signature and a photo with each of the characters.
