Nut free at BOG!

I am glad I am not the only one psyched for this news! If the cupcakes are made in a nut free facility that would be amazing. I asked my awesome travel agent to look into this as well....
I have found that many desserts made " in house" and not through a central location have a much better chance of being nut free.....
Thank you all again...

I can only tell you our experience with the BOG cupcakes...

We have always spoken with a chef for TS and either a manager or looked at the allergy book for CS. So we were a little skeptical when ordering with the kiosk with allergies. (Lunch) The CM helping us order assured us every choice unsafe woud be eliminated off the kiosk choices. Which there were several of, and several modifications came up, such as different bread, etc. (for peanut and tree nut allergies). (For example, DD wanted the vegetable quiche, but that choice was eliminated for her so there must be something in it that is not ok, my guess is the crust...)

They must get this a lot, because we kept looking at him, like are you sure?? and he kept saying, really, it's all ok if the choices still remain. So we went with that, as we have trusted Disney for years with DD's allergies.

Her food was brought out by a manager and had an allergy stick in each item she ordered, it was not brought out on the cart with the other food.

Still, she stared, unsure, at the two cupcakes we were going to share to taste each one, and she couldn't believe it, as almost all baked goods Disney has are off limits to her.

She is severely allergic to both peanuts and tree nuts, and we don't even take a chance with foods that are peanut/tree nut free but are manufactured in the same facility.

Really, my heart raced as she started tasting them, and really wondered if taking the chance was even worth it. I had my eye on my purse for her epipen and benadryl even, lol. She was fine and the delight to see her eating them was so much fun! (We had the chocolate and strawberry.) I tasted each one and let her eat the rest...of both, lol. Shhh, don't tell her I told you that. A rare occasion and a special treat.

That was our experience and as always, I would suggest each party follow up on your own to be sure.

I hope everyone else gets to enjoy the BOG offerings safely! Have fun!

Know that the lunch (CS) kids' meals do not come with any sort of dessert options, just applesauce. You will need to pay extra (or use an extra snack credit on the dining plan) for a dessert. MY DS has an egg allergy (along with peanuts and tree nuts), so the cupcakes were out for him. DH and I each got a dessert (they were wonderful!), and bought the boys Mickey Bars as soon as we left . --Katie

We just had dinner there with my adult DD who has celiacs and is gluten free. The chef came out and spoke to her. The only thing off limits to her from the dinner menu was the Sauteed Shrimp and Scallops - with seasonal vegetables served in puff pastry with a creamy lobster sauce and desert was limited to the Lemon-Raspberry Cream Puff -filled with lemon custard (Dessert is gluten-free and No Sugar Added) but we were too full for desert. They brought her a seperate basket of glutten free rolls and she was even able to have the french onion soup.

In our experience they were wonderful with the alergy issue. Even to the point that when they brought out her soup and saw a glutten free roll on my bread plate they asked again who was glutten free to make sure the food was going exactly where it needed to be.

We took my Peanut and tree nut allergy son there. We all got different bread for our sandwiches. They were very good.
He did eat the cupcakes!! The chef said they had to leave off some kind of decoration from them (fancy sprinkles, I think) because they don't know where those are made. But the cupcake was fine and made in a safe place.

I don't see why you couldn't request certain combinations of safe foods from the existing menu. Even though it is automated with the kiosk, there are Cast Members available and willing to help you place your order.
When you say that you check off your allergies, is there actually a thorough list, or is it just the standard 8 or so that Disney Dining offers for ADR bookings?

I'm allergic to chicken (as well as gluten) and that never seems to be easy to indicate or manage. If they have a vegetarian button, I could use that.

I'm assuming it is just the major, or big 8. Maybe gluten too? I'm not sure. I meant to look but they were so busy and try to get you through the line pretty quickly. There are CMs there that can help you, hopefully they can find you choices that will work and you will enjoy!

I've heard they can't make any modifications. Has anyone eaten there with multiple allergies successfully? And do they stock any all the pre-packaged allergy cookies for dessert (since we can't have those cupcakes).
I've never had a counter service at WDW that couldn't be modified. I have 10+ allergies and there is always something I can eat. My allergies include peanut, tree nut and soy so subbing to see what people say as well.

I've had a similar experience, but I'm avoiding BOG until they've got some of the kinks worked out. From what I'm seeing of the kiosks and ordering for lunch, it doesn't sound like they're really prepared for anything but top 8 and even with top 8 they don't sound all that prepared for those who have more than maybe 2 or 3. I hope I'm wrong but I'm waiting for others to try it before I do.
