I feel like a kid. I am so excited I can hardly stand it! My family is planning on going to Disneyland (CA) in March. I made reservations for breakfast and mentioned my gluten-free restrictions. This person was telling me no problem, they make gluten-free pancakes. Well, I knew this but for her to know this impressed me (all she does is take dining reservations for all of the restarants). Then I asked her about procedures for finding out where in the park I can eat. She immediatly transfered me to a chef. This person called me back very quickly and took the time to go through where and what I can eat. Then I just received a call from the chef who runs the restarant where we are eating breakfast. He assured me of all the yummy options I will have to choose from. Who knew that eating gluten-free could be so easy? I REALLY think this is the happiest place on earth! Did I mention I can have french fries!

Hez--YIPEE!--I'm so happy to hear that you're going to Disney and that they're going to take such good care of you! I've only heard good things about Disney--both of them. :)

Hez, that is exciting!!! I'm going next weekend (12th)!!!! I really must call today when I get home from work. I'm going with two other friends so I'm not sure where we'll be eating (one likes fast food and burger type food, the other likes just about anything) but if they can give me an idea of which places, that would be a start! I was planning on taking some Lara Bars, peanut butter and trail mix to snack on just in case, but maybe I won't have to pack the supermarket like I thought I would, lol!

Hez - thanks for posting about DisneyWorld! That is so awesome. I went to Disney (and no where else) all the time growing up so I haven't enjoyed it much as an adult but now I may just have to go there just to support them for doing such a great job for their customers! Hey there's an idea.....(lightbulb goes off in her head)........ What about Disney Corp. as a sponsor to inform the public about Celiac???!!! They can write off all the costs of such a campaign on their taxes. This is dreaming big I know but I'm a big dreamer! Thoughts anyone?

I posted my Disney experience in the eating out forum. I was new and hadn't seen this one yet! Check it out for ideas. Disney is AWESOME! Our vacation was truly a dream come true! We are wanting to go back as soon as we can! They are so celiac/food allergy friendly! Why can't other places take this approach! I am so excited for those of you who are going! Enjoy!

I hope you will be totally happy at the happiest place Hez. Have a terrific trip all of you who are going there. I would have went with my son and his kids but my trip to Jamaica is at the same time...sorry, Jamaica won.

Here is a link to go to for where to eat in Disneyland. It is the basic information that I got over the phone http://www.kintera.org/site/pp.asp?c=ewK0LjP7E&b=1173337. Keep in mind this is for Disneyland in CA.

The only thing new is the mexican restarant in Frontier Land now has a celiac menu. Ask for it when you go in. All of the Disneyland hotels have gluten-free options as well. There did not seem to be as many options in California Adventure. None of the resturants in between Disneyland and California Adventure are run by Disney. So eating there is like eating anywhere else, risky.

Hope you have fun!

Hez

Hez -- that is FANTASTIC! Not that this would be an issue for you, but even years ago, Disney World was the only place I knew of that had TRULY accessible handicapped restrooms. They're the size of a small bedroom, and have everything you can imagine for physically challenged individuals. While you're there, take a gander (not that you're going to want to spend your time scouting out toilets!), but it's just another way that they have incorporated so much thought into that park. I am so happy for you. Have so much fun . . . . Lynne
