In Topic: Dont Eat At Downtown Disney!

15 September 2011 - 12:09 PM

I'm in disney world and am very pleased by my disney resort, magic kingdom, and hollywood studios. They all have wonderful gluten free options and the chef speaks to you personally and doesn't let anyone else touch your food. These places are all disney owned resturants that did so well. However, I ate in downtown disney our first day here and got sick! The places in downtown are NOT disney owned and the chef neglected to tell me that the ribs are smoked in barley, he only mentioned that the bbq sause was gluten-free. I found out on my own after double checking because the rainforest cafe said the ribs are a no go and they are made the same way. So be sure anyplace you eat is owned by disney because if not cc is a big concern. Yak and yeti and rainforest cafe in animal kingdon are off limits as well as world showcase in epcot and anyplace in downtown disney.

Sorry you got sick on vacation. TREX is not owned by Dinsey but Planet Hollywood in Downtown Disney is. I have eaten there 3 times as a celiac with great results. I have also -being the Disney freak i am- have eaten at every resturant in the world showcase at Epcot with the exception of japan as a celiac . All those places in Epcot will accomodate you and the chefs will come out and take care of you just like at Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. Did you contact special guest services before your trip? All the hotels will accommodate you as well . I had a great time at Chef Mickeys on our last trip in March when I got back from the buffet the chef brought me a special gluten free warm chocolate cupcake with mickey sprinkles ...yum

In Topic: Dairy Intolerance

14 September 2011 - 08:09 AM

I have been taking a probiotic for a year now with good results. It is called Kyo-Dophilus. I can find it right in the health food section of my local market. I think it runs about $23.00 dollars a bottle for 45 pills but you could take one or 2 a day. It is free of preservatives, sugar, sodium, dairy, yeast, gluten and artificial flavors and colors.

In Topic: Dairy Makes Me As Sick As Gluten

Just got back from the GI concerning this issue. He thinks I am lactose intolerant even though it seems all dairy has seemed to bother me but he said the effects are cumulative and it would take 3 or 4 good weeks to really heal. In the meantime if I am still inflamed any dairy or anything fatty or acidy would cause me to feel sick as well. He seems hopeful if I just go lactose free and give it a month with very healthy eating I should improve. I am set up for another endoscopy but I can cancel if all symptoms resolve. He gave me a digestive enzyme with probiotics to take. Even though I thought it might be a casein issue he does not think so as he said those symptoms are more allergic in nature and most people develop a casein allergy earlier in life.I am going for a lactose breath test to confirm this. Just thought I would put this out there for what it is worth since we semmed to be having the same problem.

In Topic: Milk/casein Anyone Else

I think that if Lactaid milk and lactose free cheese is making you sick, it has got to be casein. The same thing happened to me with lactose free creamer and cheese. If these products are lactose free, they still have casein. A lot of people here have to avoid dairy. I guess we do too. ugh :(

Well I thought I was home free being gluten free for about 2 years and I saw you have been gluten free for about the same time. I am really mad about having to give up dairy!! But now I am at the point where I will give it up and eat the front lawn if it is the only thing that will make me feel better. I have an appointment with my GI tomorrow so I will see what he has to say but I think I may have solved my problem. Thanks!
