Walt Disney World 2009 Vacation - Dining Review

So, I just had the best vacation of my gluten-free life! Seriously, I could sing praises all day and night for Disney! They rocked my world! I was so spoiled, I felt like a princess! I kept a log (as best as I could remember) of all the places we ate at, what I ordered, the chef

Hi Sweetfudge!

I didn't think about the gluten-free syrup either! I ate my waffles on that first morning without even thinking! I think I just got so frazzled by how busy the food court was. That was one of my main complaints about the resort. That food court was out of control in the mornings! I will try the pancakes next time.

Thanks for keeping a log of your meals! What a great idea. I'll make sure to do that next time!

I'm jealous of your long trip!

sweetfudge, thanks for the review!

I'll be making my first gluten-free trip to Disney in May (long time Disney traveler, though) and I knew they were accomodating, but sounds like a dream come true! Oh... that's right... it's Disney! I'm not sure yet if I'm looking forward to the new Celiac part of the trip and still just getting used to all the fun things I can't eat, but really, I am looking forward to dining there. There are some amazing restaurants and they do their best at making everyone's trip a magical one - despite what we can or can't have.

Glad you had a great disney trip. We too always love it at disney.The brownies at Disney are made by French Meadow so you can get these same for the choc. chip cookie at disney wrapped one....

Toffutti can be purchased at grocery stores or speciality stores. We love wildberry!

If you go again try the BOMA at animal kingdom. It is wonderful. We ate at many of the places you did & a few others. The pizza is Amy's.....

The rolls served almost everywhere are tapicoa rolls. some were from EnerG & others had French Meadow rolls.

I guess you didn't do the Flinstone turkey leg for lunch? These were good but so big & all I could think of was Barney Flinstone while chomping on this leg!

About that syrup...when we were at Spoodles last spring break we ran into the syrup issue the first day. The second day my son decided to have eggs to avoid having something he would've liked with syrup. But lo and behold, Chef Karen came out with 100% pure maple syrup! She had made sure that he would have it when she couldn't confirm the gluten free status of her syrup! I was so impressed! And he had pancakes or french toast every day after that!

When we returned last Nov. we bought a bottle of maple syrup on our way from airport to resort. But the first morning we had breakfast at Olivia's and they had individual 100% maple syrup jars.

Sooooo, I'd suggest mentioning it to the chef before you get there. When you make your reservations they give you the chef's number to call if you want. If you know you want those types of breakfast just call and ask what they use and if they'd consider the maple syrup option.

Boy I love Disney!!!

Yeah, it was pretty crazy. Thankfully (in a way...) we had to get up early for my husband's company's "morning meetings" so we were able to avoid some of the crowds. Plus, we ate in the room several mornings, which was also good.

As far as the log goes, I just kept a small notepad in my backpack, and tried to write in it after each meal. If not, I forgot little things, like the chefs' names :)

The best part about this trip was that I felt "normal" again! It was so nice to be able to sit across the table from my husband, both of us enjoying burgers together :)

Are you sure the pizza was Amy's? Mine seemed to be made from scratch, as he asked me specifically what I wanted on it, and I just listed the things. It tasted better than any Amy's pizza I've had. ;)

I went and bought some Tofutti chocolate ice cream at the HFS the other day...it was totally freezer-burned :( I am a huge fan of the other Tofutti products I've tried though.

I thought about trying one of the turkey legs...we saw people walking around with them everywhere, looking like they were eating big meaty ice cream cones. But, never gave myself the opportunity to try one.

I went and bought some of the energy hamburger buns the other day as well, and made myself some yummy turkey burgers.

About that syrup...when we were at Spoodles last spring break we ran into the syrup issue the first day. The second day my son decided to have eggs to avoid having something he would've liked with syrup. But lo and behold, Chef Karen came out with 100% pure maple syrup!

That's a good idea, about requesting the syrup beforehand. Or I might just bring my own next time.

Yes, Disney totally rules :)

    • BOBS RED mill makes an all purpose flour with no rice  try Quinoa flour  buckwheat flour tapioca  chic pea flour coconut flour almond meal ground into a flour  flax meal all these things make great " toast"  and healthy alternatives to too much rice flour yummy
    • Oh yeah. I'm 6 months in and still have bad days, even though I know I'm not eating gluten. It takes a long time to heal. I have been on here a lot in the past 6 months venting because I didn't feel good. I just posted today about how tired I still am. Everyone has basically said the same thing - give it time. Be patient. It can take a long time. Some people said it can take a year. Hang in there.
    • Ok, so I have another question for all of you professional Celiacs. I read an article recently that talked about a study that was done on people with Celiac's disease, which said that some of them (a small number) had high levels of arsenic in their systems because of all of the rice products that they eat. Now, I don't eat a ton of rice, but we do have gluten-free pasta a couple times a week, my son and I like rice Chex, and I know there's brown rice flour in the pizza crusts I use and in the gluten-free bread that I eat. How worried about arsenic poisoning do we need to be? I'm not downing rice at every meal but I do eat it daily, I'm sure. I rarely eat rice, rice. Usually it's the rice flour that's in things. Is this one more thing to keep me up at night? Because now I'm like, "Oh this is great. I'm trading gluten for arsenic." I need to eat carbs. If I just eat fruits and veggies and meat I'll lose weight which stresses me out. I want to be able to eat toast with peanut butter and eggs but I worry my toast is killing me. Am I being a little dramatic.
    • So I've been gluten free for 6 months. I gave it up the day of my endoscopy and never looked back. I was a fairly silent Celiac. My blood work was always normal (never anemic, malnourished), I didn't have all the horrible symptoms that others do. I think I caught it early and that those things were definitely coming. Since going gluten-free I notice that my belly is better. I still have days where it's not great, but in the last month I've noticed that it's consistently pretty good. I don't hardly ever get stomach aches. I've lost 16 lbs and I'm never bloated. Those things are good. But, aside from that, I don't feel much different than I did before. I'm still tired a lot. But I have two kids under 4 and I run a non-profit. I have horrible anxiety and that's only increased since finding out about my Celiac (it's health anxiety and it freaked me out big time that I have an AI disorder). I feel like my complexion looks the same (never had an issue with that).  I just read stories on here that talk about how the brain fog lifted quickly, or how people don't feel tired anymore, etc. I'm still a zombie sometimes. Has anyone else has this experience? Maybe my body was doing such a good job compensating for my Celiac that I wasn't really very symptomatic to begin with - and that the tiredness I feel isn't due to gluten.  Oh, FYI, I had a full thyroid panel done in December and it was all normal. 
    • Your daughter could have non celiac gluten sensitivity. That would correspond to negative celiac tests coupled with positive reaction to the gluten free diet. Whilst there are similarities to celiac presentation it appears that neuro symptoms are more common in ncgs patients.  That seems to be the case for me anyway!  The condition is as yet poorly understood but there is progress being made, check out a topic I just started on the pre diagnosis thread with some info and links.  The remarks by umberto Volta in particular are just about the best summation I've yet seen on where the research is at.  I will post a link later.
