Agreed and it's my new desktop picture, thanks!To me, this is still one of the most beautiful and captivating sights in all of Walt Disney World.
I totally agree, Jean. I'm one of those with severe food allergies too, and Flying Fish is one of those places I've learned from past experience NOT to trust to "get it right". I have a dwindling list of places I trust at Disney now.OMG. I am NOT one to expect any kind of compensation for inconveniences but this is clearly NEGLIGENCE. No excuse for this. You gave the chef exact warnings and the chef blew it. I don't know who should be contacted but hopefully someone else who knows will post. Your wife deserves a major consideration. I am sure there are attorneys who would be more than willing to file in the courts on her behalf if Disney does not try to make this up to her. Geez. So sorry this happened, Mike.
Mike, so sorry to hear of your wife's experience. I'm with Diane...as a minimum, take Flying Fish off your list.I totally agree, Jean. I'm one of those with severe food allergies too, and Flying Fish is one of those places I've learned from past experience NOT to trust to "get it right". I have a dwindling list of places I trust at Disney now.
Mike, so sorry that your wife is ill, prayers for her fast recovery. Knowing Disney like I do, I wouldn't trust anyone to prepare her food. I know that things like this shouldn't happen but people are people and mistakes do occur. This is so sad.Paramedics took my wife to the Celebration Hospital due a less than magical experience at Disney. It was a virtual repeat of a poor Disney experience we had just 6 weeks ago on our last trip.
Back on October 27, when we were staying at BCV, we dined at Flying Fish Café on the Boardwalk. It is my wifes favorite restaurant at Walt Disney World. My wife has an extreme intolerance of gluten a protein found in wheat, rye and barley. When we make all our dining reservations, we clearly indicate her food allergies. When we arrive at the restaurant, we always speak to the chef about her severe intolerance of gluten and what it does to her. If her food contains gluten, she gets violently ill including constant vomiting and diarrhea for hours leaving her severely dehydrated and needing intravenous fluids. Believe me, its not fun.
Well, when the chef prepared her food at the Flying Fish Café on Oct 27, he mistakenly used vinegar that contained gluten. That night, she was very sick all night, and by the morning she was too weak to move. The manager of the Beach Club resort called the paramedics, and we spent a day at Celebration Hospital. It was not a very magical time.
So, when we returned to Flying Fish Café tonight, we spoke of this very incident that had occurred just six weeks earlier, and we stressed how no vinegar be used in the preparation of her food. Chef Tim said he would ensure it would not happen this time.
But it happened again the very same thing. Chef Tim prepared some vegetables with vinegar. After about half of her meal had been eaten, the chef came by and asked how she liked it. She asked about what sauce he used on one of her vegetables. When he became red-faced and said it contained vinegar, my wife rushed to the restroom to purge herself of her dinner. But it was too late, and paramedics were soon called and took her from the Boardwalk to Celebration Hospital.
Shes still there now. After spending hours the last time waiting in the room with her, she asked me to head back to our room at BLT. Im hoping she might be ready to be released later tonight, or if not, by tomorrow morning.
Im disappointed that Disney cannot take better care in preparation of her meals. Yes, I know they still do a pretty fine job accommodating everyones food allergies, but thats not much solace to my poor wife, who instead of enjoying her vacation is very ill, laying in a hospital bed receiving intravenous fluids.
So, trip report interrupted
