Happy Blogmas Days 15-17! Regular daily posts will continue tomorrow, the 18th! I have been at Disney (safely) trying out gluten free eats! Here’s a list of all of the things I have personally tried and loved during my time here.
Note: I am not allergic to gluten, my doctor just said it could help with my hypothyroidism. If you have Celiac or you’re allergic to gluten make sire to double check with waitstaff and chefs. Disney is very welcoming and happy to help at every single restaurant.
1. Rice crust Pizza – Pinocchio’s Village Haus (FantasyLand)
This is so yummy and so easy! Pinocchio’s Village Haus is always a super great bet for gluten free because they have a ton of options. It’s really nice to have something as normal as pizza be offered because sometimes with gluten free options, they can be a little out there.
2. Fries and grilled chicken sandwich – Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe (TomorrowLand)
The fries you have to ask for gluten free and the sandwich is gluten free when you get a gluten free bun. Again, very easy and very yummy. They will use different fryers and work stations and make sure you eat safely. You also mobile order now, because of COVID, and it makes it really easy to specify that you have an allergy and make changes.
The Contemporary Hotel
1. Flourless Chocolate Cake – The Contempo Cafe
SO GOOD! I have had this literally 4 times since checking in a day ago. It’s delicious and when I posted about it I had many people DM me that they literally will hop over to the contemporary from the Magic Kingdom to come get it. I highly recommend this even if you aren’t gluten free. Super creamy and melty. Love it.
2. Anything from the gluten free menu – The Wave
The Wave is the best restaurant I have been to for gluten free needs in Disney. They have a whole separate menu and it’s all so good. I got pork with coffee bbq sauce, broccolini, and cheddar grits. It was all so delicious and very filling. My mom got gluten free chicken and potatoes (she not even GF it just looked good) and she cannot stop talking about the sauce they put on the chicken. 10/10 It’s also eco- friendly and farm-to-table.
1. Most drinks
Distilled grain alcohols are gluten free including vodka, bourbon, whiskey, scotch, brandy, and gin. Avoid beer. But almost all alcoholic drinks are gluten free! Enjoy! I loved everything at the Bellini cart in Italy.
2. Tamal De Pollo – Las Posadas (World Showcase Holiday Kitchen, Mexico)
Sadly, this is THE ONLY BOOTH IN ALL THE HOLIDAY KITCHENS that offered fully gluten free options. It had two options here that were gluten free and every other booth did not have options. Very disappointing. But! This option was so so good. I would buy a ticket to EPCOT just for the sauce.
3. Filet, mashed potatoes, and green beans – Chefs de France (World Showcase, France Pavilion)
This isn’t a gluten free dedicated facility but they will prepare everything gluten free for you if you ask! I’ve heard some people with allergies have gotten sick after eating here so be weary. I really loved this meal as well as the ambiance and just overall feel of the restaurant. The staff is very nice and the drinks are amazing. If you can, for sure book a reservations.
4. Charcuterie Board – Holiday Kitchen Expo (World Showcase)
The bread on the board is not GF but everything else is. The cheese was really goos and so was the meat. It was perfect in between drinks so I didn’t go to hard, lol. I really liked it and it’s a really nice snack.
1. Chicken Fried Rice – Yak and Yeti
YOU HAVE TO ASK. It isn’t outwardly gluten free, but you can ask! A lot of the teriyaki items as well can be made gluten free if you just ask at the quick service. It’s really great food and really cool to sit and look at the howler monkeys.
2. Churros – Nomad Lounge
Again, you have to ask, but they’re really good! The vanilla cream is great. The drinks here are also really great and very interesting.
