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.

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

Yes, Disney totally rules :)

    • I was completely floored by the realisation after I went gluten free of just how badly it had been affecting me. Before then I had all these different things which I was either barely coping with, ignoring, trying to pretend they weren't there etc. I went gluten free and suddenly all sorts of different things started to resolve. It blew my mind! Try and get a blood test now before cutting it, its so much easier than going back on it for a gluten challenge.  If the test is negative, don't assume its not an issue for you. My test was negative but I responded to the diet.  Lots of help and advice here if you need it Best of luck! Matt
    • Gemma......if you are ever in London, please check out this place.  It is a 100% gluten free bakery and the food is out of this world!  I can't get bread like this in the States and it certainly is worth a road trip for anyone living in the Uk, within reasonable distance from London.  It will easily satisfy all of your bakery cravings and I bet the bread freezes well. http://www.beyondbread.co.uk/
    • Celiac disease can be dormant for years til a strain/stress to the immune system makes it come out. Many of us have had this issues, your infection run in might have triggered the dormant genes for the disease if you had them. I would follow up with the testing, see about getting a full celiac blood panel if you can, you have to be eating gluten for 12 weeks daily prior to testing. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/

        If not celiac it could be another food intolerance/sensitivity I suggest keeping a food diary and tracking what you eat, seasonings, how it is cooked etc. And how you feel later. Change up our diet more and look for patterns.  Here is stuff to read up on. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/are-food-sensitivities-for-life
    • Yeah , i will look into getting tested - like you say there is no harm in it . What I found very interesting is the part where you say "Later I got pains in the stomach, usually a dull ache although I could get a fierce stabbing pain there too. When I went gluten free those pains stopped. as did my chronic sciatic backache which Ive subsequently realised was probably due to inflamed tissues pressing on nerves." - I also started to get chronic sciatic nerve pain on the right side over a similar time period and am wondering if its the same kind of thing. If I could solve both those things it would be life changing for me
    • Hi ,  i was thinking that an intolerance and allergy were about the same thing really but sorry if im wrong. I know celiac is an autoimmune disease but was thinking that is different again, more serious and was erring on the side of my possible issue not being that but more of the intolerance type. Clearly im just guessing though and dont know about this stuff , hence the posting for advice, The problem with trying to get tested is that in bolivia there are very limited tests and doctors are unreliable so you have to rely on yourself to certain degree. I have heard of a test here and was planning on looking into that but it made sense to try to get some opinions and advice online first so Im in a better position to understand if any tests here are actually reliable enough. I dont think there is an issue with travel parasites etc as I have already taken the medications thats would kill them like a course of albendazol and praziquantel and that was after a 2 week anti parasite cleanse. That did feel like it got rid of anything and the only issue I have been left with is this pain as described.
