No. An adult gets to choose what they want to or can eat. They know their situation far better than an employee at a theme park. I would (and have in the past) have words with someone who wanted to make that decision for me.

If they just don't want to risk people getting sick then don't serve food.

You can't even place an order at WDW once you mention an allergy. You have to wait for a manager.

If your my truly okay with it them you wouldn't bring it up but their is some risk so you do being it up to protect your self. Sometimes company's how sad it come to has to step in and protect you from getting sick. You may be okay with it being produced in same factory every single time but the one time you get sick you not going to try to get Disney to pay the hospital bill.

Unless your willing to sign a form saying you won't sue Disney or the cms if you get sick thy don't have to risk it.
I can't comprehend most of what this post is trying to say and gave up trying, but I'll try to respond.

For example, there is a difference between having a milk allergy and lactose intolerance. Someone with lactose intolerance can't have ice cream, or macaroni and cheese, or whatever. But they can have bread that was baked with butter and milk, or chocolate sauce that has a little bit of dairy in it. Every allergy is not a severe anaphylactic reaction. There are different severities of allergies. Only the person who lives with the allergy (or their parent, if it's a child) knows exactly what they can and can't have. Just because they don't want to have a whole bowl of ice cream doesn't mean they can't have the chocolate sauce on top of of Rice Dream ice cream. And a counter service worker, or even the manager, trying to dictate what other people can eat is 100% wrong.

I'm an adult, I make my own decisions. And I will fight for that every time I have to.

I haven't been to WDW in a couple years, but at Disneyland now at some restaurants they just have the option to put it into the computer and you don't have to talk to anyone but the cashier. But honestly, it's even better when you can talk to a manager so they can get a clearer idea of what you can and can't eat. No, I can't eat gluten because I'm intolerant. No, I'm not worried about cross contamination or glove switching. Or, yes I'm lactose intolerant and can't eat ice cream but the chocolate sauce on top of Rice Dream is fine.

That explains your confusion, WDW does not have that option, you say the A word- you wait. You mention any food "issue" and you stand a REALLLY good chance of having to wait for a manager.

Oh no, I've dealt with it at Disney World plenty of times. I was just pointing at the fact that sometimes at DL you don't have to do that any more. It's kinda nice, although sometimes a perk of having an allergy at DL or WDW means you get to skip the counter service line to talk to a manager.

Perk? We have not had the experience of getting to skip the line. We wait in line to get to the cashier to have to wait for the manager. Then wait while they cook safe food.

Really? In WDW that was not my experience. I would ask the "greeter" or person who was standing at the entrance to the restaurant what I should do since I had an allergy. That person always went and got the manager who would then take my order, lead me to the cashier, and get my food personally. I thought that was what always happened. Maybe I had good luck.

You must have had good luck, but then again it looks like you were last here a few years ago? A lot has changed. Living locally we spend a good bit of time in the parks and stand in line and wait.

Yes, it's been almost 2 years exactly (October 2011) so it's very possible things have changed since then. Man I miss those allergy free chicken tenders. So good. So sad they don't have them at DL.

The worst waits for me have been at cosmic rays. No matter what time if day I'm there I gave to wait 20 or more minutes to talk to a chef. I know what I want, what is safe, usually what is available and I am comfortable with my choices. I liked the BOG ordering kiosk where I could enter the allergy. The food came out separately from the non allergy.

And on another nite, the gf allergy free tenders at CHH are so good. I love that they are fried. The baked ones are just not as good.

They don't have them in dl you should go to guest service and suggest they get them. I am surprised they don't you think they would since they seem popular.
