Disney Parks and Resorts' approach to food safety is recognized as world-class throughout the industry5. Food suppliers must adhere to proper food safety practices, comply with regulatory requirements and, depending on the type of food product, submit to supplier site testing and microbiological testing of food samples.
Our parks and resorts dining locations are subjected to detailed processes that include surprise testing and regulatory reviews. In addition, our food-service cast and crew members participate in formal training that includes topics ranging from proper food handling, storage and preparation to personal hygiene requirements and sanitation practices. Electronic newsletters and other communications tools update Cast on food safety issues.
