Another Disney Succuess

Recommended Posts

Just got back from Florida for my sister's wedding and we stayed in Disney 2 nights - I had the best gluten-free meals there that I've had since going gluten-free! We stayed at the Pop Century, and ate dinner, lunch and breakfast once each at the food court and I have to say, I had better (and cheaper - they charge the kids price for gluten-free meals even though they are larger and tastier) food than anyone else in our party! My husband was so jealouse of my gluten-free pizza with broccoli, mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers (all he could get was a pepperoni pizza that was half the size of mine and cost $2 more!). All you have to do is ask to talk to the head chef, and they will come out and talk to you about the options and what yoiu want to order. Be forewarned thouh, b/c they cook it in dedicated pots, etc., it will take longer (my pizza took about 10 min. wherease all the others are premade). I want to find out what pizza crust and hamburger buns they use, b/c I haven't found any that good in the stores! They also have a gluten-free (and I think it is DF too) brownie in the gift shop that I bought for the car ride home, but I didn't eat it yet. It looks really good, and if my experience holds true it will be!

We also ate at the Grand Floridian character dinner (Park Fare) one night, and there was so much on the buffett that I COULD eat that I didn't even miss dessert (I had shrimp cocktail for dessert!). Again, talk to the chef and he will walk yoiu through the line pointing out what is in everything. I saw him several times that night walking people through. They truly love to do it too - don't look at you like you are a pain in the you know what :lol:

I"m glad we were only there for 2 nights though, or I would have gained about 20 pounds and not fit into my bridesmaid dress! :lol:

If you ask nicely, the chefs who do breakfast at the Grand Floridian will make you gluten-free waffles or pancakes :). My mom had called see what my options were, and the chef came out and asked me what I wanted for breakfast, and I just said that eggs or something would be fine, since that's what I was used to having at any kind of buffet/diner/breakfast situation, and he said "no, I don't think you understand. I can make you anything you want." So I got Mickey waffles :) Disney is really really accomodating.

Glad to hear that you had a positive response. Disney is wonderful. I did ask if I could move into the park and have them just prepare my meals everyday!

My parents bought a vacation house down there.. so we are free to go whenever we want. Unless its being rented. We rent it out when we are not there.

We will be going again within the next year.. if just for the food alone!

I truely believe Disney is one of the most accomidating place for food allergies/intolerances! When i was there in the summer the chef brought me gluten-free rolls and my own vinegar to dip it in! I am going back in December and I am so excited to eat Mickey waffles again!

If you are looking for a place to stay.. its off site.. its our house. We rent it out. It sleeps 8 comfortably. And it has a pull out couch for 2 more. You can look at it at www.lynvillas.com, if you are interested at all, just let me know.. PM me.. the price you see on the screen.. is not necessarily the price.. that is for the people who go thru the management company we have for the place.
