Over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney will introduce a brand new allergy information kiosk where guests may speak with Cast Members to help choose dining options to accommodate intolerances or food allergies. Known as the Gardens Kiosk, it will allow guests to understand their food and beverage options before visiting a location within the theme park. Of course, when visiting a restaurant, it will still be important to speak with a chef, but this kiosk will simply help in making choices.

In addition to offering information about dietary restrictions, pre-packaged snacks will be on hand for purchase.  Items include popcorn, chips, granola bars, desserts, hummus with veggies, and gluten-free beer.

The Gardens Kiosk will be located outside the brand new Adventurers Outpost meet and greet location on Discovery Island and is set to open on Sunday, August 4. Hours will be 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

It can only be assumed that if this is successful, a version will be rolled out to the other theme parks.

    This is such great news for food allergy patrons and parents. This is just one more way Disney is light years ahead of the rest of the industry. They listen to their guests.

    While I think this is wonderful and I hope they implement this in their other parks, I was disappointed while visiting all the Disney parks this winter. We had gone the winter before, and this winter when we returned, we noticed they were selling lots of nuts at the snack stands around the parks. I didn’t remember this from the year prior so I have to think it’s relatively new. It really made my husband and I nervous to see the nuts everywhere/people eating the nuts everywhere and then touching everything, etc. 🙁
