Does anyone have experience with trying to enjoy WDW, all the while with some pretty restricting food allergies? Just found out I can't have dairy, wheat or sugar! Help!!!!! What can I eat?

Not much. I have intolerances to Gluten, Chocolate, egg yokes, milk, paremaesen cheese and all other aged cheeses.
However, I love to stay at OKW, so in the morning I have oatmeal (low sugar by Sturms) or I make myself a white egg omlet with a small amount of cheese and ham.
Lunch is whatever I want at WDW. Usually I have a big salad with lots of stuff in it.
Dinner: You can go to Jiko's, California Grill, Citrico's and many more of the finer restaurants to get great meals without the stuff you are allergic to.
With my food allergies, I need to have a good memory: I can eat whatever I want, but I have to make sure that if I do, that I do not do it, constantly. I need to know that I had pasta on Monday and not to have pasta or a bagel until Saturday, to give my body time to get the "bad stuff" through.
You can also ask you Dr. for a note/list and give it to the waiter to have the Chef review it. (Especially if you need a epipen).
Hope this helps.
DVCr's since '95 I will succeed!
In the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love you make.

If you are dining at sit down restaurants, let the CM know that you need to speak to the chef and they will give you the phone number. I call and confirm the day before, as well. When you arrive, let them know that you have talked to the chef. He/she always comes out to our table to verify everything. They have gone out of their way to make some great dishes for my son. We have never been disappointed.
If you are eating at any of the counter service places, they all have books that list the ingredients in every item.
The only thing I can't stress enough is that if you make a PS with special requests, please show up or call and cancel. I have been told by so many chefs that people request all sorts of things and then they don't show up. It is very frustrating for them. If people continue to do this, they will not be as accommodating in the future. Have fun~

I went to Disney in 2002 with a gluten allergy. My entire diet was gluten free. I brought along a book that listed what i could and could not eat.
When you call to make reservations at restaurants, tell them you have a person with food allergies and tell them the specific allergies.
They will have the chef come out and go over the menu with you and tell you what you can and cannot have.
I did just fine with my gluten free diet in disney.
