If you or someone in your family has food allergies, whether it be nut allergies, an allergy to gluten, dairy, or anything else, be sure to check out the menus online ahead of time.

Bring Snacks

Although Disney does a wonderful job accommodating guests with their dietary needs, it may be wise to bring some of your own snacks. You never really know when hunger will strike, especially after wandering around the hot park all day. So, be prepared with suitable snacks to hold you over until you can make it to an allergy friendly restaurant. It’s truly awesome that Disney World allows guests to bring in drinks and snacks, as such take advantage of it while you can!

OTC Meds

High pollen counts can really ruin our day if you suffer from bad seasonal allergies. While you may not be having any issues with your allergies at home, you may find that the climate at Disney World is different than what you are used to. Thus, you may find yourself coming down with the sniffles, runny nose, and itchy eyes.

If you find yourself suffering miserably from allergies while you are at Disney, not to worry! Many of the gift shops sell individual portioned medicines to help you alleviate your symptoms. You can also stop by any of the first aid stations, as they are prepared and well stocked with items you may need.

In general, if you feel that allergies may cause an issue for you, you are better off bringing a few doses of your own medicine with you. The products you will purchase in the park will cost a fortune, compared to you what you normally pay, and the selection will be slim.

No matter what kind of allergies you have, it’s never fun! Hopefully, these tips help you to conquer Disney World when you have allergies.
