Hi All, We are planning a trip to Disney World and would love some advice. We've heard that Disney does a great job accomodating the low protein diet, but we're wondering if we should stay in a room with a kitchen. My son will have just turned 3 when we go and right now I make the majority of his food. Right now his tolerance is 4.5 grams of protein a day, so we really rely on low protein foods. I'd love some advice about what he may realistically eat while in Disney and also what we should expect to pack or purchase while we are there...and, again, whether or not we'll need a kitchen for cooking. Thanks so much for your help!

    I have not gone myself, but I’ve heard that they really will accomodate the PKU diet if you set-up ahead of time with the chefs. at pkunews.org under the traveling with PKU tab, there is a whole section with advice about traveling to disney world. Perhaps that will help you.

    As far as the hotel, I have found that if I have a kitchen at my destination when traveling, life is much easier. At a minimum I try to request a mini-fridge and microwave in my room (sometimes you have to pay extra to have them placed in the room, but not the cost of a kitchenette). If I don’t have the whole kitchenette (stove, mainly) then I try to bring pre-made single-serving disposable containers of frozen food (I keep it on ice when I travel) and then place it in the fridge when I arrive at the hotel. I can then microwave that meal. I also bring some low pro bread and non-perishable snacks. Usually I aim to have low pro toast and fruit in the morning, and one meal “out” (usually salad and fries) and the other meal is one of the low pro meals I brought. If you have other questions, let me know. Another option is to bring a hot plate and make low pro pasta, etc. in the room without needing the kitchenette.
