Whole30 is designed to cleanse and reset your body by eliminating added sugar, dairy and GMO foods. It will reset your system and identify allergic and auto immune responses aggravated by the dairy and GMO products we consume. You are actually becoming healthier. It’s a great diet to try to start eating clean!
Here is a short compressed review of the rules of the whole 30 diet.
Yes you can eat: Meat, Seafood, Eggs, Vegetables, Fruits, Natural fats.
No you cannot eat: any form of added Sugar, Alcohol, Grains, Legumes(beans, corn, peanuts), Dairy, MSG, any form of Soy.

In every disney dining establishment (including kiosks and carts) has a big binder with complete ingredient info for every dish. Here you can quickly scan and ask for substitutions. While scanning the ingredients look for: added Sugar, Alcohol, Grains, Legumes(beans, corn, peanuts), Dairy, MSG, any form of Soy.
Most proteins (meat, pork, chicken, fish) at a restuarant will generally be compliant. But just to be sure, always ask about how it is prepared. To stay Whole30 compliant, avoid preparation with butter, canola, corn or soy based oils.
It’s safe to eat any raw veggies and fruits, nuts, meats, eggs and seafood. Your snacks can include unsweetened almond butter with fruits and veggies.
Feel free to eat proteins cooked in compliant oils or grilled. And you’re set! This is nothing to stress over. If you have allergies or a special diet, Disney is the easiest place to eat because they have seen it all and want to cater to your needs!
