Boma Breakfast Animal Kingdom Lodge

Boma Breakfast Animal Kingdom Lodge

We ate here twice during our trip. There were many options such as the standard eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, chef made pancakes. In addition there were nice choices such as grilled tomatoes, quinoa porridge, grilled asparagus and more. We enjoyed our meals. The atmosphere is…

ABC Commissary

ABC Commissary

We stopped here for a counter service lunch at noon. This is not an ideal time for an allergy request, but we wrapped up Indiana Jones Stunt show and went straight there. While the line was not long, it was a time consuming event to…

Liberty Inn Lunch Epcot

Liberty Inn Lunch Epcot

During the Food and Wine Fest, we stopped in here for a safe place to get a gluten free, dairy free meal. Once again, this is a very slow spot for ordering food. Wait in line to order, wait for a manager, and continue to stand and wait while your order is prepared. The upside is that they can prepare the food safely, so it is worth the wait.

liberty inn gluten free dairy free epcotMy daughter had a gluten free (not dairy free) mac and cheese with grapes, and a chocolate chip cookie from French Meadow Bakery.
I opted for a grilled chicken (see below), which comes on a flat bread. Instead, I asked for it to be served on a gluten free bun. They left off the aioli, though I believe it is gluten free and dairy free from reading the ingredients. The chef was uncertain, so she omitted it. We have had the bagged grapes in the past, and they had an odd plastic flavor. This year, they tasted very fresh and good. We enjoyed our grapes and we saved the cookies and brownies for later. Liberty Tavern used to have a help yourself bar for tomatoes and pickles, but this has been removed.

Sunshine Seasons Breakfast

Sunshine Seasons Breakfast

I stopped for a breakfast snack of potatoes. They were fine, though the serving was very small. They did have other options, such as eggs, fruits, breakfast meats.

Garden Grill Epcot

Garden Grill Epcot

There were ample choices at Garden Grill for our gluten free and dairy free dining needs. The food was delightful. The salad was wonderful, and the turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy were a treat. We all enjoyed our meal here and we recommend it.

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

I did email Disney Special Diets 3 times before our trip to find out how they were handling allergies during the Christmas Party. I never got a solid answer, but when we got there, we found they were ready for us. We checked two different cookie handout locations and we found they were well stocked with gluten free (though not dairy free) butterscotch cookies. My daughter was able to eat these and she reported that they were very good. They also had apple juice available as well as carrots and apple slices. There was no trouble in requesting or receiving these items, and no need for a manager to come out regarding this particular product.

Crystal Palace Breakfast

Crystal Palace Breakfast

I know, it is the same ol’ same ol’ from us, but we can’t help it.  We love the food at Crystal Palace and we love the experience of dining at Magic Kingdom before park opening! It was the same wonderful attention, help, and food…

Casey’s Corner

Casey’s Corner

We entered Magic Kingdom for the Halloween Party right at 5pm. We decided to get a quick meal out of the way so we didn’t have to miss any of the party fun for a sit down dinner. This was our first time trying Casey’s.…

Tusker House Lunch Animal Kingdom Park

Tusker House Lunch Animal Kingdom Park

Another buffet, but this one had different choices. The variety of roots and vegetables was much better then what we had found at other places. We really enjoyed this lunch. The only negative was the curry, which I was told was dairy free. It did bother my stomach, and my husband’s as well. Everything else was delightful. Dessert was a gluten free brownie.

Artist Point Wilderness Lodge Dinner

Artist Point Wilderness Lodge Dinner

We have dined here 3 or 4 times, and not really because it’s our favorite. We have always been taken out to eat here by family members, which is very kind of them. I must admit, though, that 3 of the 4 times I have…

Backlot Express Lunch

Backlot Express Lunch

After watching the Jedi Training Academy, we found ourselves next door to the Backlot Express. I had not read about this place, but I decided to try it. Even at 12:30 on a Saturday, they were not very busy and we had no trouble finding…

La Ceillier Dinner Epcot

La Ceillier Dinner Epcot

I had heard again and again that we needed to try this dining establishment, so I joined those crowds who book 6 months in advance to give it a try. We started with EnerG rolls and an oil sauce for dipping (which I requested…the rolls are a little dull without it).
I loved my salad. It was the highlight of my meal!
Bean enjoyed steak and potatoes. She is a “grown up” on the disney dining plan for the first time this year, which means her dining choices are larger in both selection and portions.

 

 

Crystal Palace Breakfast

Crystal Palace Breakfast

Our family favorite is to dine at Crystal Palace for 8:05 seating, before the park opens. We so enjoy this that we make a point to do it each trip. As always, the food was amazing. I don’t know the secret, but they manage to…

Captain Grille Yacht Club Breakfast

Captain Grille Yacht Club Breakfast

We so enjoyed our late lunch the day prior that we came back the next morning for breakfast. I loved loved loved this dish! Chef Allen served an omelette for Bean, and this salmon and vegetable dish for myself with gluten free bread (toasted –…

Yachtsman Steakhouse Dinner

Yachtsman Steakhouse Dinner

 

First, I am not a steak fan, and I had salmon already for 3 meals, so the menu left me very little to choose from. BUT I wasn’t very hungry, either. I asked the chef for dairy free pasta with olive oil and spinach. He offered a Mediterranean vegetable medley over pasta, dairy free. It was delicious. It was my favorite meal of the trip! Now, these noodles are not gluten free, but you can certainly get the same dish with gluten free noodles. I just loved it. Very simple, very satisfying. We also had rolls and I asked for balsamic vinegar and olive oil for dipping. Bean had steak, which she does love. She enjoyed the carrots and potatoes. Her mashed potatoes did contain dairy, but you could substitute for a dairy free alternate side. She enjoyed her meal, considerably. I was so craving this pasta salad, I made one the day after we got home. Yum!

Hurricane Hannah Yacht Club Lunch

Hurricane Hannah Yacht Club Lunch

While enjoying the AMAZING pool at Yacht Club during our stay, we had quick lunches here. The low allergen choices were hot dogs or burgers with EnerG buns, safe fries, and cookie/brownie. Grapes and Carrots also available. Kid meals would come in buckets like these…

Cape May Cafe Breakfast

Cape May Cafe Breakfast

Our first impression of Cape May was…WOW it’s LOUD and chaotic in here! It seemed that it drew an even younger crowd, overall, then Crystal Palace. Maybe that is partially because it’s in a resort hotel? That aside, the food was delicious. I had potatoes…

Pop Century Food Court Breakfast

Pop Century Food Court Breakfast

The chefs here have ample gluten free ingredients to pull to ensure you and/or your little ones don’t go without all those fun treats. They made gluten free, dairy free Mickey waffles on a dedicated waffle iron. They also brought out pure maple syrup. They were quite good. We had rice milk to drink, and fruit on the side.

Ohana Polynesian Dinner

Ohana Polynesian Dinner

Another restaurant we were told we just HAD to try, so on our 5th trip (or is it 6th?) we finally did it! This is another establishment that requires early reservations, which was evident by the LONG lines of hungry (and grumpy) people waiting to…

The Wave Contemporary Dinner

The Wave Contemporary Dinner

  We decided to do a late lunch here after a Magic Kingdom morning. It was an easy ride over on the monorail and a nice opportunity to cool off and eat in a quiet place. Bean had a gluten free pizza, but it was…

Crystal Palace Lunch

Crystal Palace Lunch

 We ALWAYS love Crystal Palace! They do such a great job with the low allergen foods. I had some delicious salads. The rice noodle dish had gluten, but everything else on my plate was gluten free as well as dairy free. Bean’s potatoes had dairy, but her other items were all dairy free/gluten free. For dessert they brought out the same fabulous gluten free dairy free brownie from previous posts (see photo below) as well as rice dream ice cream for Bean. We all enjoyed our meal, yet again.

Main Street Bakery

Main Street Bakery

While the options are pretty limited, they do have dairy free ice cream and root beer, so we used our snack credits and cooled off with some Toffuti vanilla ice cream floats. They were wonderful on a hot day, and quite a treat (we don’t…

Jiko Animal Kingdom Lodge Dinner

Jiko Animal Kingdom Lodge Dinner

Jiko would be a 2 TS restaurant on the Disney dining plan. The food was really lovely. We ordered salads, and my salad was so delicious! The girls loved the flowers on top. Bean had a steak with fruit and 2 vegetable sides. This was…

Maya Coronado Springs Resort Disney Breakfast

Maya Coronado Springs Resort Disney Breakfast

If you have read my dining reviews, you’ll know I love the CSResort, but I am beyond disappointed with their counter service dining choice.
This trip, we decided to try the Maya sit down version. It did prove to be much easier to order, although the flavors were just lacking. Breakfast at
Crystal Palace and Tusker House both have much more flavor in the eggs and potatoes. Some salsa would have helped. The food was very bland, but it was quick and convenient.
Again, I cannot really recommend eating here with allergies, but if you are in a pinch, you should be able to find something for breakfast. There was a large assortment of fruit, scrambled eggs, and meats.

Crystal Palace Lunch

Crystal Palace Lunch

On our last day, I booked our breakfast and a late lunch at Crystal Palace to save myself the hassle of standing in line at counter service. I didn’t have a backup adult with me for the lunch meal, so this worked out great. The…

Crystal Palace Breakfast

Crystal Palace Breakfast

Again, for those of you who ready my reviews, you know how much I love Crystal Palace! I do believe it is my favorite Disney restaurant. I just love the food, and the options for our allergies! The location is wonderful, too. And the characters…

Coral Reef Lunch

Coral Reef Lunch

Lunch started with the wonderful atmosphere and beautiful sightings of aquatic life in the larger than life aquarium. We all love the experience of dining at Coral Reef!
The last time we dined here, we had a wonderful garlic infused balsamic dip for our tapioca rolls, but I was informed they no longer have this.
I asked for gluten free/dairy free rolls, anyway, and some olive oil with balsamic vinegar to dip. This was still quite good. For my meal, I ordered a tilapia dish over greens and beans.
It was so good, but VERY salty! I almost thought they may have made a mistake with the salt, but as a salt lover, I managed to eat it without
trouble. This was Bean’s last year ordering from the children’s menu. She had grilled chicken, steamed broccoli and mashed potatoes. It was very bland looking, but she seemed to like it.
Since she was dining on the Disney dining plan, dessert was included with her meal. They brought her a dairy free ice cream with sprinkles. Another delicious meal at Coral Reef.

Rosie’s Cafe Lunch

Rosie’s Cafe Lunch

We ate a quick lunch here, hitting the stand at 11:15am to avoid the rush. They had a gluten free bun option, but it would have taken longer (wasn’t at location) so we opted to skip it. This was not very good, but it was…

Brown Derby Dessert

Brown Derby Dessert

We were able to stop in without a reservation for dessert. Perhaps my favorite dessert of Walt Disney World for our allergy requirements is found here. It’s the Mango Sorbet with berries. It’s delightful! I asked for a specialty coffee drink, but they did not…

Artist Point Wilderness Lodge Dinner

Artist Point Wilderness Lodge Dinner

While the burger with gluten free bun and fries made in a dedicated frier may not seem very exciting, it is a rare treat for my daughter (something we do not make at home) so she was pleased.
I had a fabulous dish that was a blend of navy beans, chorizo, chicken, and greens. It was quite possibly the best dish of the trip. Dessert is lacking across the board in Disney World. The only option most places have for us is a brownie (pre packaged, even served in the package) and rice dream ice cream. That is fine. We enjoy places that have an additional option, but this was not one of them.
Great meal, fabulous service and wonderful atmosphere. Their menu lends itself well to gluten and dairy free dining.
