In Topic: Conference In Montreal

21 May 2011 - 03:16 PM

I'm traveling to Montreal for a conference and need some help finding restaurants that are easy to order at (I'm going to be with coworkers who may not be planning far enough ahead for me to call and everything). I'm staying at the Hilton Bonaventure near the conference center downtown, and they were awesome on the phone and promised to have options for me (including getting gluten-free bread!). Nonetheless, I'd like some other choices too.

I'll have a fridge & microwave... anyone know of nearby grocery stores that might be useful?

Thanks in advance!


I was in Montreal for two days last month. We ate out twice. There is a chain of restaurants called Pizza Pizza and they have gluten free pizza and toppings. It was very inexpensive and the pizza was good and we didn't get sick. It was not a fancy place at all, just a few tables and you order at the counter. We also had some crepes at the Creperie du Marche at the Jean Talon Marche. It was a bit out of the way from where you are staying but for us it was worth it to have some great crepes! Hope that helps!

In Topic: Disney Cruise Lines

21 May 2011 - 02:44 PM

Hi -

We are going on the Disney Dream in August. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this line? My son is gluten free/mostly casein free not b/c of celiac but b/c of autism. Unfortunately b/c of his autism he is very sensitive to food textures, so he won't for example eat meat. At home I'm able to work around his idiosyncracies (sp?) - lots of scrambled eggs, bean dip made with cashews, beans, gluten free pasta with pesto, etc. I'm trying to figure out what he's going eat for a week! Do they have gluten free bread, pancakes (I know some places do gluten-free pancakes in the parks), soy yogurt, gluten-free pasta, etc.? I tried to call Disney for more information and they weren't real helpful. Basically referred me back to my travel agent and told me to fill out a special services form.

If you've gone on a Disney cruise, can you tell me what kinds of gluten-free, dairy free options they had besides meat?

Thanks!


I was on the Disney Dream in February. My daughter and I are both gluten free, and I am a vegetarian as well. Everything went very smoothly! We had it on our reservation that we needed to be gluten-free. So, when we got on board at our first meal we spoke to the head chef. He told us to pre order all of our meals, and it worked out great. We ate at all of the main restaurants successfully, when we went to the buffet, the process was very very long!

We had gluten-free pancakes, rolls, cake, and gluten-free pasta was available but I don't think we ordered any. There are many posts about this topic on disboards. Let me know if you need any more info! Also, there is a fridge in your stateroom and you can bring food on board with you.
