    Disneyland in California or Disneyworld in Florida?  This is a recent post on the List-Serv about dining in Disney:

    Thank you for inquiring about how the WALT DISNEY WORLD® Resort handles special dietary requests.  We now have special dietary information on our website at the following link.

    The attached documents should help you with your planning.  Please check the Walt Disney World Resorts Dietary Reference Sheet and it will give you more information regarding the products we carry.
    Please complete and return the Guest Allergy  – Dietary Request Form by email to []  or fax to 407-560-2992.  Be sure to list the restaurant names and dates where you plan to dine.  This way we can alert all the various restaurant Chefs and Managers of your upcoming visit and there would be no need for you to contact the individual restaurants directly.
    Due to the large volume of meals we serve, vendors and suppliers occasionally swap out product.  Therefore menu items and preparation is often updated.  We stress that you ask to speak to a Chef or Manager when you arrive at each location.  They will be happy to assist with your selection and provide product labels and ingredients for menu items.
    Let  us  know if you need any further assistance.

    The Florida PKU Foundation might also be a good resource for you.  We have not been to Disneyworld in a long time but found them very accomodating with the PKU diet but require advanced notification.

    Hope you guys have a blast!
