Hi all. My family and I are heading for WDW on Sunday. Since WDW is where dreams come true I am getting in the spirit and dreamin gof a burger on a gluten-free bun and some seriously deep-fried french fries. For those of you have been to WDW, where did you have success in locating this most decadent of entrees? I have heard tales of places that only sell uncontaminated McD's fries (gulp)...but I have also heard tales that this ended w/ the WDW McD's break up...:(

Anybody else have any favorite suggestions for "quick service" meals in any of the 4 parks?

Thanks

Richard

My daughter and I went 2 times last year -- Aug 5 days, then Nov 7 days - it truly is the world for celiac travelers, and you will be treated wonderfully!

You can get fries pretty much anywhere, they made us special ones, in a pan with olive oil whenever we requested at our sit down meals. If you do deep fry - it is a soy oil and I do not do well with those.

Sit downs - (reservations with your allergy / celiac in advance so it is documented)

The si-fi ribs A+++ Kids and adults both like!

Great steak meals at Canada restaurant!! A+++++++

In France - escargot WITH bread!! (gluten-free of course) we did this as a treat for lunch

Quick service - anywhere!

Learned the first visit, eat lunch early - when not to busy - at a quick stop, go right to or ask for manager to help due to allergies--- best term to use at first. We did mostly salads and fruits at quick service, but they have gluten-free hotdogs, hamburgers, pizzas etc... everywhere - just ask as explained above to a quick service manager

Yay for trips to Disney! It is so much fun to eat there. My family always eats at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe at Magic Kingdom. You have to wait twice as long for your hamburger and fries, but SO worth it. You can pick up gluten-free Brownies and Chocolate Chip cookies at the Main Street Bakery. If you are staying at a Disney hotel, they can provide you with a gluten-free menu. I could have eaten every meal at our hotel. They made gluten-free Mickey Mouse shaped pancakes, which was a huge deal for my 4 yr old.

If you call the Disney number (you can find it on the Disney website), ask for info on their gluten-free options and they will email you what you can eat at each counter service at each park. Very helpful!

Have a wonderful trip! Happy Eating!

:rolleyes:

It really is the Magic Kingdom!

Does anybody know if Frontier Fries (in Frontierland) or Petrifries (in Disneys Animal Kingdom) are still around? They were the quick service shacks that served ONLY McD's fries and soft drinks - no McMystery Meat Nuggets to foul up the oil...Sadly I fear they are no more...can anyone confirm this? :huh:

I know there was still a McDonald fry place in Epcot as of Nov last year, I don't know about now though. I am really confused because McDonald's frys have a small but still present gluten coating, they are off limits anyway.

oh, those chocolate chip cookies were soooo good, definitely get one of those!

I have several of the brochures I brought home, and I can post a few of the quick service places later for you... I kept them for the reason of somewhat pre-planning our next escape.

McDonald's fries do not have a coating. There is wheat and dairy in the oil they use. That has been much debated here on many threads.

I know debated, and debated.... and probably will continue to be.

**family friends have several MCD's... they told me otherwise, and they are not safe. I take that to heart.

    • Welcome, Josh! You have two choices: 1) go back on gluten and get tested.  This will help confirm if you have celiac disease or not.  Some 10% of celiacs are seronegative.  You should confirm if you had the complete celiac panel.  I personally am only positive on the DGP IgA, even on follow-up Testing.  Okay, if you have NCGI, the treatment is the same.  But with a celiac disease diagnosis, that puts you at risk for other autoimmune disorders or cancer (though rare).    You could have both IBD (Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis) and celiac disease or maybe Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.  Knowing this, your doctors can be on the alert for future problems.  It can also help you adhere to a LIFELONG gluten free diet because you will have NO DOUBT.  The endoscopy also provides an initial baseline.  2) stay gluten free for life.  Learn all that you can about cross contamination, avoid eating out (it is like Russian Roulette).  Eat fewer processed foods.  Learn to read labels.  Keep a food and symptom diary to identify other food intolerances.  Read our Newbie 101 advice pinned at the top of the “Coping”section of the forum.  Healing can take months to YEARS.   I have a formal diagnosis (four years ago) and my only known symptom was anemia.  No GI issues.   My hubby went gluten-free 16 years ago per the poor advice of two medical doctors.  We both know odds are that he has celiac disease, but we can not afford for him to be sick for a three month gluten challenge.    He will tell you that I get way more support from medical, family and friends.  We were easily able to get our daughter tested because of my diagnosis.  Easy for me to get a bone scan confirming osteoporosis, etc.   Only you can decide what is best in your case.  I wish you well.  
    • You might have to try cooking ALL fruits & veggies to death to make it super easy for your gut to handle them without putting undue stress on your body. Another thought is ditch every single processed food. Eat everything fresh that you cook yourself. No frozen foods, no canned foods. You can do dried beans but be sure to sort & wash them carefully first.  6 months in is early for many people. It sounds like you're one of those people. Saying that you definitely feel better than when you started is a good thing. You know it's working. It just isn't working as fast as you hoped/wanted. Take heart that you are feeling better and try to be patient. I know it's hard. You want to GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO & get on with your life. You feel like you're sitting at the starting line with your engine revving & you just want to race ahead but you can't get off the starting line, as if someone put a chain around your rear axle.  Be kind to yourself, be patient with yourself. 
    • There is a HUGE difference between grass and grain fed meats. The grass fed longhorn that I use when I Cook for others is 100% different then any other grain fed beef I have gotten in the store. THe stuff is SOO lean you have to ADD oil to the hamburger sometimes because it is so lean there is no oil to fry it up in. The meat is leaner then turkey. The omegas content is different in it also. I love cooking with it because it rarely needs any seasoning and anything I do apply seems to just explode in flavor with it. NOW I can not really eat it, but as a chef what we do is set a bit aside in a tasting dish and go do a chew and spit it out test. Not something to be done with a allergen or gluten but with stuff I do not digest like rice, beans, meats it is a means for me to know if seasoned and cooked right. >.< Note I lack the digestive abilities to break down actual meats, even with enzymes they just sorta float til I puke them up or they come out undigested out the back in the case with fish and crab. I have not tried meat since March....side thought my doctor had told me when my UC damage heals up I might be able to eat meat again....might try some fish tomorrow.

      I do have some other thoughts, you say B12...what about the other B-vitamins? How much magnesium are you taking? Magnesium is a relaxent when your getting enough your feel relaxed, you have very vivid dreams and sleep like a rock. This is why many people take it right before bed.

      I have always praised and sworn by Liquid Health Stress & Energy and Liquid Health Neurological Support for B-vitmains due to the nature of how they work with the body I take 1tbsp each 3 times a day before each meal to keep optimal levels and prevent that wane feeling. I also use KAL nutritional yeast in my meals often (look up the nutritional label on these)
    • Hey everyone,  I am new to this and relatively new to figuring out I was gluten intolerant.  I had lost about 20 pounds over the course of 2 months and had a colonoscopy and scheduled endoscope to see what was going on.  I was getting massive stomach cramps whenever I ate bread, explosive diarrhea when I had anything with lactose, and was in a state of continual brain fog and anxiety.  The medication the doctors gave me, including PPIs didn't seem to help.  I literally thought I was dying of stomach cancer.  A week before my upper endoscope I started a gluten free diet and saw a massive reduction in my symptoms.  My brain fog and anxiety went away almost immediately, so did my heartburn, I got this whenever I ate bread, and I didn't have the massive cramping feeling in my stomach, I gained back about 7 pounds, and my diarrhea began to go away.  I had a blood test for celiac but was negative for it, the doctor told me the best way to tell was to continue to eat gluten and get my endoscope and have a biopsy done.  Since I felt so good I decided not to get the endoscope, since the GI surgeon said I was either one of two things: celiac or had non-celiac gluten sensitivity.  He said the treatment is the same for both; no gluten.   The questions I have is I am still having some issues, it seems like if I eat anything with corn or soy I get diarrhea.  I also still have a nagging discomfort under my left ribs.  I have been gluten-free for about 2 weeks and that is what I am still experiencing. I have read that I may need to cut out soy, sunflower oil, safflower oil, and corn as well as the lactose and gluten to really start seeing good results.  Has anyone else experienced this stuff before?  Do you guys think I should have gotten the upper endoscope?  Thank you so much for your input. When I was researching on what I could possibly have wrong with me, it was this site that made me try to go gluten free and it saved my health.  I know most doctors don't recognized NCGI so I don't know how long I would have suffered though this, as no doctors I worked with suggested going off gluten. Thank you for your responses and God Bless! Josh  
    • Thanks for all the input guys. Yeah I've had the vit/min panels and all that done and it was all normal. Regardless I've been supplementing with 1,000mcg sublingual B12 daily, 5,000iu sublingual D3 every few days, and since going keto, "ketovitals" which gives me some magnesium, potassium, sodium, and calcium. Also douse everything in pink sea salt and drink a ton of water. For months now I've tended to get at LEAST 10 hours of sleep per night... Usually. I still at times have terrible insomnia, which is what happened the other night, then had to get up early. Got a total of maybe 5 hours and still feeling it now 2 days later despite sleeping closer to 14 hours a night since. So Ennis, you mentioned about lectins, which I'm now reading about, and interestingly, certain things I don't do well with (usually uncooked veggies, aside from onions) seem to correspond to this. I even do fine with peas, but, I cook those. I'll have to start experimenting. The only part that gets me is that I'm reading grain-fed meats are high in lectins. I've read before that the supposed grain/grass fed difference is BS, and in fact the one thing that has never let me down through all of this is chicken, and I just buy the regular stuff for that. Can anyone confirm or debunk?
