A Guide To An Allergy Friendly Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

Disney's Halloween Party

Disney’s reputation for its food allergy awareness is remarkable. Extending their dedication to guests from their resorts to their quick-service venues. They are devoted to assisting guests and connecting them with knowledgeable chefs for all their dietary needs. This commitment to a guest’s well-being is further demonstrated in events like Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. For those attending the event with allergies, this guide will help you navigate the event so that it is safe and magical.

The Beginning Of The Party

Upon entering the Magic Kingdom, each attendee receives a trick-or-treat bag. While the standard bag is easily accessible throughout the park, the allergy-friendly bag is provided exclusively upon request. Easily identifiable by its teal color, this special bag notifies cast members of your specific dietary requirements so that you may continue to immerse yourself in the trick-or-treat festivities. The design of the teal bag also places an emphasis on preventing cross-contamination. Typically, these allergy-friendly bags can be obtained at the trick-or-treat location on the path next to Tony’s Town Square Restaurant or through Tomorrowland Terrace, they may also be available at the dedicated allergy centers.

Once you are equipped with your bag, you’re free to go through any of the designated trick-or-treat locations. These spots are marked on the party map with an orange lollipop icon. At each of these locations, barrels of candy are ready to be placed into the standard trick-or-treat bags. However, for those with allergies, the experience is a bit different. Instead of traditional candy, allergy-friendly bags receive teal tokens at each location. In case a cast member doesn’t immediately notice the teal bag, a simple notification will alert them to provide the tokens or guide you to where they can be obtained.

Turning In Tokens For Allergy-Friendly Candy

As the party progresses, or upon its conclusion, these tokens can be exchanged for allergen-friendly candy. Redemption stations are conveniently located and can be found in locations, such as Liberty Square next to the Hall of Presidents, or the Main Street Chamber of Commerce as you exit the Magic Kingdom. These stations stand out during the party with their teal “Allergy Friendly Center” signs adorned with a pumpkin. You’re encouraged to visit these stations and redeem tokens as frequently as desired throughout the night. Cast members at each redemption location can provide visual references for each candy item, showing the ingredient list in full, as well as major allergens that are not present.
