Hi - we are heading down to Disneyland in a couple of weeks, staying for 1.5 weeks. 4 in our family are celiac and we are in need of any tips for eating gluten-free while down there or if anyone knows of any restaurants that have gluten-free items in and around anaheim. Any info would be much appreciated! Thanks

While at the park, go to city hall. They have lists of restaraunts at the park with gluten free options. As far as other restaraunts, there is a P F Changs on katella. In the Anaheim Garden Walk.

Please let me know how this goes! I'm planning a trip there in October.

According to the Disneyland website, people with special dietary needs should contact the restaurant in advance... I'd love to know what your experience is with either walk-in or advanced reservations. I've heard Disneyland is very good about accommodating people with Celiac or allergies.

If you haven't already read this, make sure you do: http://www.kintera.org/site/pp.asp?c=ewK0LjP7E&b=88697. It definitely makes gluten-free at Disneyland seem heavenly. I haven't gone since changing my diet, but I intend to go before the summer's over (I live pretty close).

It sounds like calling ahead is the key to getting extra great service, so make sure you do. Have fun!

Disneyland is a GREAT place to go for gluten-free stuff. My favorite restaurant to go to is The Storyteller's Cafe which is in the California Hotel. They have gluten-free pizza, pasta, and more! Definitely get the list of gluten-free foods from city hall inside Disneyland. I went to the Rancho del Zocalo Restaurante once and had amazing Mexican food without a problem. I've also heard great things about the other restaurants on the gluten-free list they give you. Have fun!! It shouldn't be a problem.

We had a very successful trip to Disneyland!

My son decided to swear of gluten for life while we were on vacation, so we ended up with both of us eating gluten-free at Disneyland.

We had bacon burgers with gluten-free buns that were actually good!

Be aware that the gluten-free pizzas are basically personal-size pizzas. They're pretty reasonably priced, too. I thought they were "whole pizzas" at the whole pizza price, but they weren't.

We were only there one day so we didn't eat all that much at Disneyland, but I look forward to next time. :)

I thought I replied to this but now I don't see my post. Maybe I forgot to hit the add reply button.

We live close to Disney and go there a lot. Disneyland is accomodating and helpful with EVERYTHING. I just love it there. I just got my diagnosis but years ago I had to go wheat free for nursing my son because of his allergies. Too bad they didn't diagnose me then. Disney had so many options! Now that I'm diagnosed celiac I will have to go and relearn what those are, but here are the ones I remember.

For anybody going in the future here's a bit of info.

Pizza Port near Space Mountain has a gluten free pasta. All you have to do is go up to someone on the pasta side and ask them to make it for you. Go in front of the line because they cook it to order, so if you wait in a long line you'll then be waiting for a few more minutes to get the pasta. Their meatballs might have gluten so make sure you ask. I don't know if they have gluten free pizza, but they might.

Storyteller's Cafe is a great place to go and has a lot of options, but it's outside the park.

Carnation Cafe will have options, too. Just ask the server. The chef there is SO nice and he comes to the tables regularly to say hello.

You can make reservations for any restaurants and avoid lines by calling 714 781- DINE.

Bengal Barbecue near Indiana Jones has grilled skewers with chicken or beef. There is also a wonderful grilled veggie skewer. I have to check about the sauces on them.

If it doesn't rain on Tuesday we are meeting up with my homeschool group there. It will be my first celiac Disney trip so I can get the info and post more later.

Here is an email I received from the folks at Disneyland in February, 2010 when I inquired about gluten-free dining at Disneyland:

To choose the restaurant where your party wishes to dine, read the menu then ask to speak with a chef or manager, if neither is available ask to speak with the lead on duty.

I wonder what to do about other allergens? I am allergic to soy too... b/c of that I am always afraid of the gluten-free stuff at Dland. I go there frequently and haven't bought anything besides an apple and pineapple spear!
