In Topic: Gluten Free Disney

05 January 2012 - 02:37 AM

We are going to Disney (Florida) next month! YEAH!!! CANNOT wait! I must admit I'm a little nervous though. I don't like going to new restaurants anymore knowing we will have to grill the waitress or the manager to find out what I can/can't eat. I don't like knowing my usual options are a bun-less burger or a salad. I have done some research (thanks to what I read on these lists) and contacted our hotel and made sure we have a room with a microwave and fridge. I will be bringing some of my own snacks for the trip down so I don't get desperate in an airport. The hotel has sent me the menu for the breakfast items so I know what I can/can't have there and I've printed out the gluten free menus for restaurants in close proximity to our hotel (we are not staying on Disney property, we're staying near the Maingate East).

So, for anyone who has done Disney gluten free - do you have any tips? Any places we should avoid at all costs? Any places we should definitely go to?

Thanks so much in advance!!!

If you have made reservations for dining on Disney property you can make a note on your reservation(s) regarding your allergy...Disney has gluten-free breads, pasta, desserts, snacks! I find it easier to eat at the "sit down" locations but I have additional allergies besides gluten.

Go to Disney's web site http://disneyworld.d...etary-requests/

It should help put your mind at easy. At Disney you can start making dining reservations about 180 days in advance. You can make them over the phone or via the internet.

Hope it helps!

Ducolax is a laxative. My problem is the opposite - constipation and it has become much more severe since going gluten-free. I have tried everything - diet, food diary, supplements, Metamucil, stool softners - everything that has been suggested & so far nothing has worked. The only thing that works is 2 Ducolax every night. i hate taking them and hate developing a dependence on them but have no choice. Both of my dr's have said that sometime i have to go for the lesser of the evils and since I have a badly twisted colon getting backed up will result in a bag. So, we do what we have to do. I hope that you can find a solution. Browse around as everyone here is so very helpful!


Ask your doctor about Amitesa (sp) I have a twisted colon and my doctor put me on them to help! Keep "dairy" low in your diet can be helpful what everyone is saying is all true the great difficulty is finding out how to balance out your system.

Is it wrong to say that this forum made my day. Love the title.
