Disney World - Burger & Fries
0

8 posts in this topic

Hi all. My family and I are heading for WDW on Sunday. Since WDW is where dreams come true I am getting in the spirit and dreamin gof a burger on a gluten-free bun and some seriously deep-fried french fries. For those of you have been to WDW, where did you have success in locating this most decadent of entrees? I have heard tales of places that only sell uncontaminated McD's fries (gulp)...but I have also heard tales that this ended w/ the WDW McD's break up...:(

Anybody else have any favorite suggestions for "quick service" meals in any of the 4 parks?

Thanks

Richard

My daughter and I went 2 times last year -- Aug 5 days, then Nov 7 days - it truly is the world for celiac travelers, and you will be treated wonderfully!

You can get fries pretty much anywhere, they made us special ones, in a pan with olive oil whenever we requested at our sit down meals. If you do deep fry - it is a soy oil and I do not do well with those.

Sit downs - (reservations with your allergy / celiac in advance so it is documented)

The si-fi ribs A+++ Kids and adults both like!

Great steak meals at Canada restaurant!! A+++++++

In France - escargot WITH bread!! (gluten-free of course) we did this as a treat for lunch

Quick service - anywhere!

Learned the first visit, eat lunch early - when not to busy - at a quick stop, go right to or ask for manager to help due to allergies--- best term to use at first. We did mostly salads and fruits at quick service, but they have gluten-free hotdogs, hamburgers, pizzas etc... everywhere - just ask as explained above to a quick service manager

Yay for trips to Disney! It is so much fun to eat there. My family always eats at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe at Magic Kingdom. You have to wait twice as long for your hamburger and fries, but SO worth it. You can pick up gluten-free Brownies and Chocolate Chip cookies at the Main Street Bakery. If you are staying at a Disney hotel, they can provide you with a gluten-free menu. I could have eaten every meal at our hotel. They made gluten-free Mickey Mouse shaped pancakes, which was a huge deal for my 4 yr old.

If you call the Disney number (you can find it on the Disney website), ask for info on their gluten-free options and they will email you what you can eat at each counter service at each park. Very helpful!

Have a wonderful trip! Happy Eating!

:rolleyes:

It really is the Magic Kingdom!

Does anybody know if Frontier Fries (in Frontierland) or Petrifries (in Disneys Animal Kingdom) are still around? They were the quick service shacks that served ONLY McD's fries and soft drinks - no McMystery Meat Nuggets to foul up the oil...Sadly I fear they are no more...can anyone confirm this? :huh:

I know there was still a McDonald fry place in Epcot as of Nov last year, I don't know about now though. I am really confused because McDonald's frys have a small but still present gluten coating, they are off limits anyway.

oh, those chocolate chip cookies were soooo good, definitely get one of those!

I have several of the brochures I brought home, and I can post a few of the quick service places later for you... I kept them for the reason of somewhat pre-planning our next escape.

McDonald's fries do not have a coating. There is wheat and dairy in the oil they use. That has been much debated here on many threads.

haven't located the brochures... but, you can go to disney.com and visit the maps of the park, and going from memory you can see the different things, exhibits, shows, rides, food set-ups, located through out the park. best of luck, and have a wonderful trip!!!!!!!!!

I know debated, and debated.... and probably will continue to be.

**family friends have several MCD's... they told me otherwise, and they are not safe. I take that to heart.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
