We have an exciting announcement from Disney Parks Blog, announced today. The Food Allergy Research & Foundation (FARE) officially recognized Walt Disney Parks & Resorts as providing delicious offerings that meet various allergies and special diets. This recognition came at the 20th annual Food Allergy Ball that took place in New York City. All of the Disney Parks, including the parks at Walt Disney World, offer a variety of allergy-friendly dining options for guests no matter whether it is a quick service restaurant or a table service restaurant experience. Each year there are 700,000 meals that span over 650 Disney dining locations served for guests that have food allergies or require special diets. This means that guests with these needs are able to dine on a variety of delicious meals while on their Disney vacation!
Here is what Mandy Bond, the Director of Food & Beverage Strategies and Standards, had to say when accepting the award for Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, “It is a tremendous honor to be recognized by FARE for our efforts to make our dining experiences enjoyable for all our Guests. We truly appreciate having FARE as a partner to educate and inform us as we evolve our allergy efforts and resources so we can continue to deliver excellent offerings for our guests with food allergies.”
FARE is an organization that works to improve the health and food options for 15 million Americans who live with food allergies. The organization also works to provide research and alternative treatment options.
Congratulations for Disney Parks & Resorts for this amazing recognition!
