Baby cakes are egg free.....BUT they are NOT completely tree nut safe. It depends on your comfort level and severity. The flour they use is bobs red mill which is processed on the same line as almond flour. I cannot eat that flour anymore..l.i was just diagnosed in July with a tree nut allergy and I'm too high risk to use that flour. If you go to the FAQ on their website they mention this.

Had really wonderful experiences after concern

We've been back a few weeks and I wanted to note a few things on the gluten/egg free bread concerns. I have a 6 yo son who is pretty newly diagnosed (late August) with celiac disease and who also has dairy, egg and wheat allergies. The things he has missed the most are "bread that looks and tastes like REAL BREAD", cookies/cakes/brownies and decent pizza. I also have a two year old and was traveling alone with the two of them and didn't have the luxury of TIME to explain everything in detail and figure out what (if any) choices would be of interest to my 6 yo w/out the 2 yo going into meltdown.

I contacted special diets multiple times before I found someone who sent me the form to fill out to request the chefs to contact you. In theory, we didn't have enough issues to warrant this, but I added that my little guy is sensitive to soy and eventually we got it. I submitted it about 10 days before we left and I requested to have the chef at seven locations contact me. Two chefs called within minutes of each other just after they received it and two more within the next 48 hours. All but one contacted me within 3/4 days.

Since I gave them advance notice, multiple locations were able to get in rolls or bread that worked for us (gluten and egg free) and one chef even baked a loaf from scratch for us!!! (He sent home the rest of the loaf with us!)

The gluten-free/allergy-free desserts at almost all of the table service restaurants were over the top! I learned after one sadness disaster to specify that all family style meals -- including desserts -- needed to be items we could ALL enjoy and after specifying that the chefs tried sooooo hard to come up with kid-friendly presentation wonders. Sooo cute.

Oh, and contact your resort hotel chef ahead of time and specially request that they have some babycakes products on hand for you. We stayed at AofA where they carry the four-pack of the actual "baby" cakes regularly in the grab and go case. But I found that when it appeared they were out, when I asked they had some held in the back for us (and maybe others with same situation?). Thank you Chef Dan!

We should be OK. DS has actually been given the go-ahead to trial almonds (after successful pecan and macadamia nut in-office challenges), we just haven't gotten around to it yet (it's a pain to source cross contamination free tree nuts!). This makes me excited about our trip to WCC!!

Just heard back from special diets that we don't qualify for the letter anymore either . They did tell me to call them during business hours to discuss the whole egg/nut free bread thing. Maybe I can have them give me the number for the resort chef during that call (we're staying at CBR). Thanks for the helpful info. --Katie

Blue Diamond Almonds Dont have a cross contamination issue as far as I know. I had been given the go ahead to try almonds when I tested negative back in march. Those are actually one of the things I had been eating when I reacted and we did retesting (along with wheat, oats and coconut)

This thread is making me feel so much better! If this stomach thing continues I might have to go dairy free in Feb

We have one ADR at 'Ohanas but the rest mostly quick service or offsite. I just hope offsite is as good at accommodating dairy free!

Yes, I definitely eat very well. And now I think I'm getting spoiled for all restaurants outside of the "world!"

I've been to some conferences in Orlando and didn't get a chance to eat at Disney and had to eat at some of the places on I drive. I got sick. A lot. The biggest problem I see in many restaurants are the cross contamination issues. So in the future, I'm staying on property and driving to the conferences--better safe than sorry (and who doesn't need an excuse to go to WDW! )

@Sparkly - best of luck on your trip! You will be very well taken care of even at the QS locations! And Ohana is one of my favs!

Thanks for the update! If you have time, would you care to elaborate on this part? I was wondering what happened with the "we ALL could enjoy" part.

My DS13 is excited about the Babycakes stuff.

That dessert looks awesome! It looks like the Enjoy Life cookies and chocolate if I'm not mistaken. Yum

It sure does look like the two different styles of EL cookies and EL chocolate. Is that a creme brule with gummies on top? I've been thinking about eating at GG in an upcoming trip and this is definitely making me want to. If only it wasn't so hard to fit dinners in parks into my itinerary (it's got to do with how we tour; we're rarely in parks at dinner time).

Yes! They are Enjoy Life cookies and chocolate and that is a creme brule! Good eyes! Garden Grill has become a favorite of ours the past two trips. We don't have multiple foods allergies (only gluten) and we do it as a family so I think that helps the Chefs. The food there has been really good both times, the setting is fun and you get to see the characters. I would recommend it!

Subbing!

So glad I found this!

We don't have any allergies per say, but lots of sensitivities.

Between the 4 of us: Gluten, eggs, red dye, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, strawberries, cauliflower, cow's milk (cheese & yogurt is ok), ranch and honey mustard dips and dressings. And when my Dad is with us, he has to eat low iron and has a severe shellfish allergy.

I'm so glad I found this because even with the reading/blogs, the list doesn't sound too appealing... photos,though.. .they definitely speak a lot louder (and yummier) than words!!

Can you tell me, though.. the Mickey Waffles... what are they made with?

Mickey waffles are made with Bob's Red Mill pancake/waffle mix and/or Namaste mix. Some places use one, some use the other, and some use a mixture.
