I have only been gluten free since October of 2011, we went to Disney in February 2012. My first gluten free meal was at the Liberty Tree Tavern for dinner, when I made reservations ahead of time I asked them to notate gluten free, but failed to realize that dinner at this resturant was family style. NO fear, we were seated the cook came out introduced hisself and told me that the meat was served with stuffing on the same plate and he would make sure it was all seperated for me, he made me gluten free gravy and offered to make gluten free rolls, so while everyone enjoyed the items filled with gluten I had the same without, it was WONDERFUL!!! This is how the rest of our trip went, with the exception of downtown disney, there the cook did come out and talk to me, reassured me he would be the person to get my order when the waiter wrote gluten free on it and explained everything I could and could not have. So they didn't necessarily make anything special for me, but had many options. I spent 3 days there and never got any gluten (I have immediate DH when I get the smallest amount, so I would know quickly) Hope you have just as good an experience as I did!

Disney did a great job for me at their new resort in Hawaii. Make reservation ahead of time and you'll be well taken care of.

Have fun!

Disney is simply amazing for gluten-free. They have lists they will email you, plus if you speak to the manager when you arrive at any of the restaurants in the park they will bend over backwards to make sure you get safe food! I was served burgers on Udi's buns, fries out of dedicated fryers, gluten-free BBQ ribs, and the big smoked turkey drumsticks you see everywhere are safe and delish.

Make sure you go to Raglan Road Irish pub in Downtown Disney (make reservations for a table or you'll have an obnoxious wait) and get some gluten-free fish and chips or onion rings from their dedicated gluten-free fryer! :)

And my friend Chef Mike who has been a chef at Disney for 14 1/2 years says & I quote:

"Years ago Disney NEVER gave out their recipes Now you can buy Disney cook books!! The location I have been at for 11 yrs even prints recipes to hand out to the guest if and when they ask. If we don't have it handy there is a actual chef that we forward requests to that emails them to you. "

So when you eat that mouthwatering gluten-free Disney food you can ask for a printout of the recipe!!!!! How cool is that?

And Skylark ---- I just got the Raglan Road gluten-free fry batter recipe. I will post it this evening when I get a chance. YUM!

tongue.gifI'll start a new thread for it.

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • 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
