    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

I am going on a road trip with some friends in a couple of weeks. We are going first going to be camping in Sun City California(for 2 days) then we will be going to San Diego for 3 days then Palm Springs. I am currently trying to find some good restaurants to eat or stores where I can find gluten free products and am curious if anyone has any tips for me? Thanks :)

ETA: We will also be going to Disneyland, on the website it says to call ahead of time to reserve a spot at a restaurant but the problem is I have no clue which one would be able to give me the best gluten free meal, and I'd rather not waste my money, which has happened much to often trying to eat out lately. Anyone had any experience with gluten free food in Disneyland??

I rarely eat out because the risk is just too much for me. But, last December, I was pleasantly surprised when we went to Disneyland and Downtown Disney. At the Rainforest Cafe, the manager was familiar with Celiac and knowledgeable about gluten-free preparation. She had them prepare me a fantastic cheeseburger. This may not sound like much, but it was the first time that I had eaten out in three years! :lol:

So while you're at Disneyland, make sure you get to The Rainforest Cafe.

Thank you SO much for the recommendation! I am glad to at least have one place in mind that I can go and eat while we are at disneyland. I don't really want to have to bring too many snacks with me, especially since we will be on rides all day, so that definitely simplifies things!

I guess I don't need to worry about San Diego anymore! I just ran into this website!

Decided I should post it in case anyone else comes on here looking for info on Sand Diego. Most of the info for the restaurants was updated in March so you know you are getting accurate information! I am really excited to try out the gluten free bakery!

They also have a Disneyland list of gluten free foods that you can find at Disneyland and where you can find them. Even a place with gluten free pizza and a place with gluten-free waffles.

Go here:

And click on "click here" under disneyland. Says the list was only good until November of 09 but I'm sure it couldn't have changed much. And either way its still a good reference sheet.

I like how I post a question and then end up finding most of the answers myself. LOL. Oh well! I figured posting this info would help someone else out there who may be planning a similar trip!!

Yes, I had to stop eating Schar bread because I was getting sick on it all the time. I believe if I am not mistaken (it has been a long time) the Artisan line does not. I received this tip from someone else, and I don’t know if it is accurate but it seemed to help me, at least.
