Anyone Been On A Disney Cruise And gluten-free?

Recommended Posts

I would love to take my daughter to Disneyworld and on a Disney cruise ( 3 days Disneyworld - 4 days Cruise) for her birthday this summer. Has anyone been there and had good luck with a wide variety of food that was gluten-free? I am the one that needs to be gluten-free ( not her). I've heard they are very accomodating with what they have, but I picture myself in front of a huge buffet and only being able to eat the fruit ( and no dessert the whole time) - that just won't work!

I haven't been on a Disney Cruise but I have been to WDW a few times while gluten free. There is so much food to choose from ! They have everything from gluten-free rolls, cakes, brownies, pancakes, waffles,pastas, rice dishes, quinoa dishes, salads, meats - - - truly wonderful! When you want to have a table service meal, make a reservation and have it noted on the reservation. You can call about a week in advance and talk to the dietary specialist for each restaurant and they will go over what they can do for you. The chef will come out and talk to you before your meal. Even the disney resorts will accomodate your needs. For counter service meals there is a list available from Disney that lists all of your best bets for a quick bite. From what I understand the Cruise would also be able to accomodate you. I think that you just need to note on your reservation and you should be all set. Have a great time and don't worry!

I haven't been yet but we are doing the land/sea package this summer. My 2 daughters and I are all gluten/casein free. When I booked it, they told me that the cruise line was just as allergy friendly as the resort.

I also haven't been on one, but Disney is the one line you definitely wouldn't have to worry about. You will have tons to eat. In fact, I'm sure they'll bring out your specific requests directly to you to cut down on contamination possibilities. Call them.

Be sure to let us know how it goes. I've been really wanting to do a Disney cruise after the baby is old enough. We have a 3 year old who would just LOVE that. Me, I'm not keen on boats, but I'd do anything to see her smile. Plus, my husband is sick of going to Disney World for every single vacation. I like it because it's so easy to find things to eat in the parks. He would love to go on a cruise though. So... Disney, of course, is my first choice!

I will update when we get back. I'm a little nervous about it because one of my daughters is also soy-free and a vegetarian (and gluten-free/CF). I will be really impressed if they can feed her. They assure me that they can, but I won't really believe it until I see it.

I am a vegetarian celiac and Disney World has always been amazing with the food - plenty of pasta, pizza, rice, tofu (I know that kids don't usually like tofu) and just about anything vegetarian that I cook at home is available there. I think your daughter will be well fed!
