Allergy friendly SeaWorld

We visited SeaWorld last weekend and it was an incredible experience! Cody loved seeing the animals, most importantly the sharks, which we had to see first to get him to stop saying, "where's shark" over and over. And I was very pleasantly surprised by how food allergy friendly SeaWorld is.

All over the park are allergy friendly snacks for purchase in stands labeled as "allergy friendly."

Also, every eating spot had allergy information cards that had advice and instructions. The other side of the card had a place to write down your food allergies to give to the staff at your chosen restaurant.

I was very impressed and encouraged. After we came home I looke into it more and found out that the SeaWorld parks, which also include Busch Gardens and Sesame Place, partnered with FARE (Food Allergy Research and Education) to implement staff training and guidelines for handling of food allergies. Here is the link with more information: SeaWorld Parks allergy friendly dining and allergen information.

Not only did we have a wonderful time at SeaWorld  this weekend, but also found it to be a good allergy friendly getaway. We'll definitely be back and have plans to visit Busch Gardens soon also.

Anyone have any other great recommendations for good allergy friendly family vacations?
