They have stuff for people with food allergies. In the past years it's been either those pre packaged apple slices or packaged grapes like you can get in Happy Meals. No cookies for people with allergies.

In past years, since I have access to my parents kitchen before the party I've always made my wife Vegan Snickerdoodles, and bring them to the park for her durning the party.

All I've seen at the christmas party are some type of sugar cookie/snickerdoodle. So you should ask, but they should be safe, with your peanut allergy. Since there is no reason to put any peanut product into the cookies, they should just be Eggs, Flour, water, sugar, and baking soda.

Shades of Green Rates
Authored by: BrerJeffries on Thursday, October 01 2009 @ 01:04 PM CDT
You're right, the rates at Shades of Green are based on your rank, the lower the rank, the lower the rate. But even in the highest category, the rate is less than a Moderate resort during Value season. A few other things about the Shades of Green rates--the rate stays the same for the entire fiscal year (Oct 1-Sep 30). You pay the same price at Christmas as you do during a "value" season. Also, there's no sales tax anywhere in the resort; for the rooms, the restaurants, or items purchased in the exchange. But if you have a car, there's a $5 a day parking fee.

Note the cookies in the parks may vary. Some are enjoy life ( which is Kosher and dairy free)
