Guests asked and Disney answered! As was announced on the Disney Parks Blog, they just launched a Disney-branded line of better-for-you snacks that are great for Guests looking for dietary alternatives related to food allergies or lifestyle choices!
Patrice Guy, merchandiser with Disney Theme Park Merchandise had this to say about the new Snacks with Character line: “We listened to guests who said they wanted options when it comes to snacks at Disney Parks. The Snacks with Character line was developed in collaboration with Merchandise Product Development, Food and Beverage Health and Wellness, Disney Design Group, and various suppliers in this field. We hope guests will enjoy these new tasty treats that are fun to share.”
To create these treats, Disney Theme Park Merchandise teamed up with well-known specialty suppliers such as Ocean Spray, Enjoy Life Foods, Way Better Snacks and WOW Baking Company. Several of the dietary needs addressed in the new assortment products include gluten-free, nut-free, and other allergy-friendly products.
DIStracted Tip: Although the blog didn’t say if these items would be available on the Disney Dining Plan, the pictures on the blog seem to indicate the possibility as the pictures show the items in a display with the DP symbol prominently featured. We’ll keep our eyes and ears open and will post when we hear more.
I know that this news will come as a real treat to those looking for other snack options! Stay tuned to the Magical DIStractions site for more breaking news!
