They have purchased prepackaged meals that are free of all her allergies, that they use daily. The problem they are running into is needing a microwave in the room for breakfast, as she can't wait to eat. Another challenge they have is, if they bring meals with them to restaurants and counter services will they microwave it for them? For medical needs, does Disney ever provide a microwave? Is the old GAC program help me at all in the food needs? They have no problem waiting Their turn but are hoping the pass can help them with the saving their spot in line. Any help that can be provide will be greatly appreciated.
There are microwaves in every food court. They are not allowed in rooms unless a kitchen or kitchenette is part of the suite. In these situations, there will already be a microwave in the room.
If you are asking if the DAS will help in food courts and restaurants, then no, it only works for attractions with FP+. Mobility issues are addressed by Disney with a standard 'wheelchair/ECV' response. For a child, a stroller will be allowed to be used in the queue as a wheelchair once you get a tag from guest services.
