Disney Cruise on the Magic with a food allergy
This Western Caribbean cruise on the Disney Magic was filled with fun, but I wish that I had known the ordering protocol for food allergies, the menu options, and other details. I think that these tips will help, not only those with food allergies, but anyone taking a Disney Cruise.
Since we are a Disney food allergy reviews-based site, let’s start with the food!
First and foremost, I need to thank our waiter Branislov. He was a wonderful server with great attention to detail. One night, my daughter fell asleep (more about this to come) on my shoulder, and he whispered to me, “Does she like the skin on the chicken, or not?” I was puzzled, but answered, “No, she doesn’t like the skin.” Well, he placed her plate gently on the table, quietly grabbed a knife and fork, and proceeded to remove the skin and cut her chicken into bite-size pieces. I have never had a waiter or restaurant staff make such a wonderful gesture. He took such great care of all of us. My mother, Sallie, my daughter and I adore him!
Neno was the head waiter, or maitre d’. He was so attentive to our needs, that the other tables nearby wondered who we were, to receive so much attention. Either our waiter, or he, brought us menus for the following day to order a safe breakfast, lunch and dinner. This always took place at dinner. Neno was the direct link to the chefs and kitchen staff. He was just as wonderful as Brasnilov. We also had a wonderful assistant server, Ivelina. She was also attentive and kind.
Without the wait staff mentioned above, none of the safe, allergen free food options would be possible. Although the chefs have the same incredible food allergy training as those at Disney World, they do not visit your table as they do at Disney World. Therefore, you must rely on the wait staff to relay your food allergy restrictions to the chef, who will present them with options to suggest to you. The wait staff handles all communications that go to the kitchen.
