Disney continues to lead the way in accommodating guests with food allergies. In a major step in the right direction to improve safety for guests suffering from severe food allergies, Walt Disney World has just signed a multi-year agreement with Mylan Inc. which includes access to EpiPen and EpiPen Jr auto injectors throughout Walt Disney World parks and Disney cruise ships. Included in this agreement are updated maps and signs throughout the parks and cruise ships that will quickly and efficiently point guests in the direction of available EpiPens in the case of an emergency. EpiPens are used for the emergency treatment of life-threatening allergic reactions caused by allergens, exercise or unknown triggers. In addition to the EpiPen availability, nurses will also be on-site at designated locations to help administer the EpiPen injection in the case of an emergency.
Way to go Disney! I am thoroughly impressed with their care and concern for guests with severe food allergies. This new alliance will help guests suffering from severe allergies have an amazing stress-free vacation. EpiPen locations on the Disney cruise ships and within Disney parks will begin rolling out in late 2014 so keep an eye out! As always, guests that must carry an EpiPen with them due to severe allergies may continue to do so within the parks.
