Hi! We are going to Disney World in June. My 4 year old daughter with not only has Celiac but is extremely picky. I looked at the older posts about Disney restaurants but I am wondering if anyone has recent experiences they want to share. I want to make this an amazing vacation for all of my kids and getting her great food would really help. Thanks in advance.

Have you made your dining reservations yet? If not, you should start looking at the restaurant menus to make reservations now. AllEars is a great place to start out to see what each restaurant offers. Also, send an email to WDW.Special.Diets@disney.com to get more information. They will send you about 8 documents for your review including one to send back to them once your reservations have been made.

As of today, December 25, you can make reservations through June 23 if you are not staying on WDW property. If you are staying on property you can make reservations starting this day plus 10 additional days. Since a lot of people go in June it is a good idea to go ahead and start making those dining reservations.

Do you know what kind of meals you would like to have? If so, I could help make some restaurant suggestions.

I have several food allergies that I've had to deal with since before being diagnosed with Celiac and WDW has always done a wonderful job taking care of me and making sure I have something safe to eat. We leave next Thursday for our trip and I can give you a full report on how our experiences are. We plan on dining at the following:

50's Prime Time - possibly, but they have a reputation for being great for Celiac's

Cape May Cafe

Yak & Yeti

Big River Grille

Ohana - Breakfast

Casey's Corner

Coral Reef

Garden Grill

Le Cellier

Toy Story Pizza Planet

Kouzzina

Cosmic Ray's

Blue Zoo

Several counter service locations

Let me know any questions you have. I LOVE WDW and love to help out when someone has questions. They will do a great job making sure you have a wonderful trip!

Hi there,

Where will you be staying?

I went in October of 2008 and 2009. I don't think you can lose with the service at the table service restaurants. In 2008, we ate at California Grill and Jiko. This past year, we ate at California Grill, Kona Cafe, Narcoosee's, and Whispering Canyon Cafe. The service was best at Whispering Canyon Cafe, but the food was the best at Narcoosee's. I think our server was very rushed at Kona. She wasn't bad, but she seemed to be overwhelmed - it was a busy night.

I think if you eat a counter service meal in one of the resort food courts, you will plenty of options. For instance, the food court at Port Orleans Riverside has a pasta bar, burgers, pizza, and a carving station. They also have a lot of options for breakfast, but beware because it can be a zoo in the morning! The counter service restaurant at Animal Kingdom Lodge didn't have as many options. I'm not sure how the other deluxe resorts are with their counter service choices.

If you want specific menu recommendations, please let me know! I can tell you what I had and point you in the direction of some reviews and blogs as well. As long as you are prepared and you give Disney notice that you will be coming to town, you shouldn't have any problems!

Like Chell said, don't wait to make your dinner reservations!

Hi,

We decided we wanted to do Disney this year also. Theresa.Joiner@disney.com is the person to contact regarding special dietary needs. I got her name off of the celiac travel site and she has been very helpful with the correct forms and places to eat.

We're thinking of Aug 14-21 or July 23-30. Maybe see you there :)
