My DS is 10 now and has been eating them for about 5 yrs now. I hate to think we just have been lucky. His Peanut Allergy is off the chart as the nurse said one time. Every time he gets tested it just gets higher and higher. His tree nut allergy goes up and down, which is confusing.
I am going to have to research this some more.
Your right because I am not sure by the post but it sound like Disney might be playing it safe by saying it made in te plant. Since they make the other items with nuts their. It might not be made on the same equipment just in same building that could also be why your okay. Not sure how serve the allergy is but try nestle and see what they say.

Bring back Walter on the podcast we miss him

I've never eaten the Mickey bars. I've always been told they were off limits because of cross contamination. My peanut allergy is through the roof high. I get retested every 6 months right now to see what's going on with my allergies and My allergist skips testing me for peanuts on the skin test right now because it's just too severe and it complicates the reading of the other allergens.

I personally don't trust nestle. I have found that thei labeling stinks and they are not too open about their possible cross contamination issues. At least with products in The US. They are better in Canada and Europe.

I just went to Disney in December with anaphylaxis allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, eggs and shellfish plus additional mild to moderate allergies to wheat, oats, coconut, sesame, ginger, broccoli, and soy. I am also sensitive to all raw fruits and veggies because of oral allergy syndrome.

They were amazing. I ate better for that week than I have since my most recent 8 allergies were diagnosed last June. It was so wonderful. We ate at POP century food court, sunshine seasons, 50s prime time, Sci Fi, Columbia harbor house, the plaza, crystal palace, 1900 park fare, plus a few other places. The chefs were amazing. But be aware....when we were there, the chefs were slammed with allergy requests. When we went to prime time, there were two chefs making the rounds to 7 allergy tables while we were there so lunch was about 2 hours for us that day. But it was amazing and so worth it.

I haven't been to WDW in a few years, but have been reading the boards lately to keep current with how they are handling allergies nowadays. Prior to my last trip, I did contact Nestle directly concerning the Mickey Bars. My DD loves them and is also off the charts allergic to peanuts and most nuts. I recall that Nestle responded with their usual response which is something along the lines of "we take food allergies seriously and take every precaution to prevent cross-contamination."

I did let my DD eat the Mickey Bars that trip, but I admit, I freaked out a little each time.

Disney is great with allergies, all you have to do is ask.
Just curious, do you let your DD eat store bought ice cream?

We go to Disney every year with a family member who has severe peanut allergies. Disney is great with accommodating food allergies. I would first contact special diets with any concerns you have.

When you make ADRs online, you can check a box to indicate which food allergy your child has. We always check peanut and tree nut, because of the risk of cross contamination. If you make ADRs on the phone, let the cast member know about the allergy, so that they can include it in your reservations. When you arrive at your ADR, mention the allergy at check-in and with the waitress. They will then send a chef to your table to go over options. TS locations we avoid are Ohanas because of the peanut dipping sauce, Tusker House because they have a pb&j make your own station at lunch and dinner, and any Chinese restaurants.

As for quick service meals, when you reach the cast member at the register, let them know about your allergy and they will send a manager out with a binder full of ingredient information, which they will look up what you want to purchase, and make sure it is safe.

Good luck and if you have any questions, let me know.
