We all at least have been to Disney World in your life time if not that’s okay. We all have great time while on vacation at Disney World. I myself had a bad experience when I was on vacation this last time in Disney World due a waitress who didn’t like that I have a disability and a peanut allergy which is always concern for me when I go to eat different places. I myself felt very uncomfortable when I was there with my significant other due to the fact she thought we were annoying since we were asking questions about what they serve at the restaurant in Epcot which is based in the Norway pavilion. I have been to Disney twice before this and I haven’t had a bad experience other than this. I didn’t let the waitress’s behavior effect our time.  

When having food allergies there’s a point where waiters and waitresses should at least be understanding to the needs of those who are going to the establishment. This issue could lead more families to not go there especially if the wait staff doesn’t understand the needs to those who go to Disney World at any point in time. The situation that I experienced is considered discrimination because I not only have Asperger’s Syndrome and a peanut allergy. I don’t play the disability card. I myself advocate for those who are unable to advocate for themselves. 

The peanut allergy if not addressed can cause death. If a waitress doesn’t understand that I was concerned and asking for suggestions for my meal that’s something that I wanted to enjoy my experience at Disney World which was unfortunately ruined on that night. For those who don’t understand peanut allergies you can’t catch them nor is it something that anyone can die from with the expection of the person who has the allergy would effected by potential death or going to a hospital. 

Don’t be afraid to let anyone know at any restaurant that you may have a food allergies since it’s something that needs to be known. If you don’t let anyone know it won’t be a good situation those have kids it’s a given that you are letting the severs know that you child has an allergy. There’s always room for improvement when it comes to restaurants to make it easier for families that kids with food allergies along with those adults to have food allergies too.
