Disney In Orlando

my husband and i recently celebrated our 15th anniversary by going to disney for a few days and i am relieved and happy to report after constantly eating out that i had NO incidents with gluten or contamination. no matter which restaurant we went to the chef personally came out to talk with me and discuss my options and assure me they have dedicated equipment. it was such an awesome experience. after the 2nd meal eating out i felt comfortable that they could and would handle my food safely. they even offered up pancakes, waffles & breads that they could make me if i chose that weren't listed on the menu. it was such a different experience at a disney restaurant than one around town ... my husband joked about how we got the royal treatment there having the chef come to our table and give us his personal attention. completely opposite of if you go to one around town and they roll their eyes at your "high maintenance" order.

2 of our favorite places- the yacht club and cat cora's restaurant "kouzinna" (both at the boardwalk) the chef's there were awesome!!!! :):)

I'm so glad to hear this! My boyfriend and I are BIG travelers and after we pick a place to go, as you know the "big question" is never: "can we afford this?" "where would we fly into?" "can we rent a car in that country"..... it's always "what are my food options".

Well we booked our Disney vacation last night and were slightly worried about the food....I guess we have ZERO reason to worry! Thank you!

We went to Disney in CA. We ate at 2 fast food type places. They were great! You get a menu at the Court House guest services that tells you which places have what. Even at the fast food places, only the kitchen manager is allowed to make your food. It takes a few minutes more but that's OK. The kids that take your order know about gluten-free and allergy food. In fact, at one place, the cashier looked at the menu I had from guest services and said that it wasn't quite right and explained every choice and why.

Bluebonnet,

I'm so glad you had a good time and a pleasant experience. Thank you for posting! My hubby and I are in Fla right now visiting family and will be in Orlando in a couple days. I just made a reservation at Kouzzina based on your excellent review! I love Greek and Mediterranean food and love Cat Cora! I made the rez via Disney's website and they have a section where you can check off your food allergies. That's brilliant. This is my first real vacation since going gluten and soy free and it's nice that Disney is so accommodating. Now off to look at the Yacht Club...

:-) Thank you!

The more I hear about Disney (the cruises, the theme parks, etc) and the way they really try to treat you well, the more I want to give them my business. The cost scared me away at first, but my health is totally worth it. Thanks for the report back!

We are going in January. We will be doing most of our own cooking, but this is good to hear, since hubby and I would like at least one night out ALONE, while the kids are with their grandparents. I can't wait to have a romantic eve. out with my sweetie!

Kouzzina, Cat Cora's restaurant, was F A B U L O U S! I had made a rez via the Disney site and listed my allergies (gluten, dairy, soy). When we arrived they were well prepared. They had tapioca rolls warming and served them with a lemon olive oil for dipping. Then the chef came over and we went through the menu together and he told me what they could adjust and what things they couldn't. I had 2 appetizers (egg lemon soup and dolmades) and the cinnamon chicken with roasted potatoes. The chef delivered the dinners himself and assured me everything was made in a separate area to avoid cross contamination. I was so stuffed I couldn't tackle dessert but they would have made me something. I thanked the chef a bazillion times for being so accommodating. It was one of the best meals I've had in eons (that I didn't make myself). I highly recommend trying it out.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
