MNSSHP Candy Alternatives for Food Allergies?

The last time we attended MNSSHP, we were able to go to City Hall (I think that is where it was ) and get a bag of safe candy for my PN/TN allergic child.

Does anyone know if they are doing that this year?

It was so very nice, and really meant a lot to my allergic kiddo.

It seems they are.I heard about it so I emailed Special Diets.Here's my post from another thread - I'm a gluten free vegan so I emailed Special Diets to see what I could receive in the candy exchange.They asked me for my dietary restictions and what date I would be attending.Then I got this reply - Dear Karen,

Thank you for inquiring about how Walt Disney Parks and Resorts handles special dietary requests.

We have sent your request and information regarding the Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party to this location so that they are able to best assist you. On the day of your party, please go to Guest Relations in Magic Kingdom Park, let them know of your special dietary request and present a photo ID so that they may provide you with alternate options for treats.



I have no idea what I will get,could be a bag full of bananas! Should be interesting....

We were offered bananas. And when we found a candy DD could have the cm looked in her bag and said "you already have one" and would not give her any. (SO I told her I had not gotten any and she could give some to me).

How horrible!! Did this happen this year (I'm not implying this is ok to happen any year but I'm trying to ask if this is what is happening this year or if there's still hope for this year).

I was thinking about you the other day. Haven't seen you around here in a while I don't think. I hope everything's going well for you and your DD.

They really wouldn't give her another piece because she already had one? That's awful!

Is it necessary to email Special Diets in advance?

LOL!! No way would you let that happen.

I posted my WCC review in my ongoing thread. Best...cornbread...ever! You might be interested in the Trail's End stuff. Huge difference from what you had to endure thank goodness. They've made a lot of changes for the better.
