Not sure if they would be able to arrange your meal for that first evening or not but it's worth an ask.
Thanks did not know about dining room changes location will note this for next cruise. Another learning experience for first time cruisers. While talking over dinner tonight at home the wife and I have decided all other cruise lines are out. DCL does way too great of a job to take a chance on anyone else. GF chocolate soufflé for desert where else you gonna find that?

How do you have the dietary restriction noted on your reservation? I'm wondering if I can call or if our TA has to do it.

We have done Carnival since my husband was dx with celiacs. They were very good in the MDR about taking his order the night before and making whatever he wanted. On the buffets he just used his own judgement. Thanks for your review we are a little nervous about our up coming Dream cruise.

Email food allergies to SpecialServices@disneycruise.com

Include names, cruise dates, stateroom etc.
They say to do it at least 30 days ahead of time.

I did not get a response, but I called Travelocity about another issue and it was in the system.

I have Celiac (dx 8 yrs ago) and the best vacations I have had, dining safely and with respect, have been at Disney resorts and parks. In fact, this year my husband wanted to take another cruise and we considered only DCL for this very reason.

Glad to hear the Fantasy has it going on! We'll be sailing her this August.

Thank you so much for your report! We are sailing on the dream in May (first cruise) and my daughter and I both have celiac. I have been worrying about food. Even though you were on the fantasy, I'm sure the dream will be similar.

On the Dream, go to the dining changes and ask to be put in Simone Tosta's section ( he is a head server), he will take good care of you..
