Eating Gluten Free at Disney. Eating gluten free is hard enough. Finding options when you’re eating out is tough. Staying at a resort for a week is a whole new ball game. Fortunately Disney makes it easier than many places!
Disclaimer: I do NOT have celiac’s. I have an adverse skin reaction when I eat gluten, but I don’t have issues if items are prepared near each other. If you have a more serious condition I recommend speaking with the chef when dining at Disney!
It’s easiest to find gluten free options at sit down restaurants. When you check in on the mobile app you’re given the option to disclose a number of allergies such as gluten or shellfish.
Every server we had did an excellent job advising me what I could and couldn’t have. In my opinion sit down dining is the easiest way to be gluten free on property.
But it’s not the only option and Disney does a wonderful job with quick service gluten free meals.
Currently with Covid restrictions quick service restaurants are almost exclusively mobile order. When you’re ordering on the mobile app school all the way to the bottom to find the allergy menu.
My biggest worry was not being able to get gluten free options at Flower and Garden. F&G is my favorite festival and has some amazing food.
The only struggle I had with remaining GF at Disney was quick service dining at Art of Animation. They weren’t set up to offer GF via the mobile app and with covid restrictions ordering in person can be difficult. Hopefully they remedy this soon.
On the whole Disney made it easy to be gluten free. They even have an assortment of GF snacks in the gift shops!
