Above is a salad sampler to share. We loved thew watermelon salad with fennel as well as the chick pea salad in the middle. The one on the far end was not gluten free, but they did have other gluten free and dairy free options. […]
Back again in June 2013 for more goodies! I can’t rave the brownies enough. But my stomach does get a bit mad at me when I eat this two days in a row. Still, what a nice treat option! Attached to the BabyCakes bakery is the Pollo Campano quick service restaurant where you can order rice, salsas, and chicken.
We LOVED the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Review at Fort Wilderness. The chef gave us most of the same food options as everyone else. They had corn bread, and we did not (they did have gluten free corn bread, but not dairy free).
They gave us salad, beans, ribs and baked potato. They offered to make us grilled chicken, but we passed. There was plenty of food. I was disappointed with the dessert, once again. It was raspberry sorbet. I don’t really like raspberry sorbet, in the first place, but it was this, or fruit. Yay!
We still had counter service credits to use, and since we were staying at Coronado Springs Resort, we decided to take our credits over to Animal Kingdom for breakfast. The choices were good, and the food safe. I will say that the gluten free waffle […]
This was the kids favorite restaurant of the trip. They loved it! I had the gluten free dairy free version of the Salmon BLT with cucumbers and rice dream ice cream for dessert. The result? Yum! The chef doesn’t quite seem to understand the gluten free flat bread in this dish. What they served was almost too tough to eat…literally! It seemed like a pizza crust folded in half, but it lacked any moisture or give. Still, the salmon BLT was delightful, and with a little extra chewing for the “flat bread”, it was a pleasure to eat. I loved the pickled cucumbers (love all pickled veggies) and the
vanilla rice dream tasted like a salted caramel, which could have been what it was, or it could have been my imagination. Either way, I loved it! A side note, this restaurant was the absolute winner for silent dining in Disney World. It was eerie how quiet it was. Give the world a TV and some food and watch them zone out. The true Sci – Fi of that dining experience was the silence. Ahh…
This will look about the same as previous trips. Disney has replaced the French Meadow Bakery brownies and cookies with OMG brownies and cookies. This is a big disappointment to me, since the OMG products have dairy! Now the dessert selections on property seem to […]
We wanted to try something new, so we booked a dinner here. They did a very good job catering to our allergen needs, however we were not excited about the food. The new bread rolls are sweeter and softer than the old style.
The Indian food chicken dish tasted like a frozen version of Indian food, and not very good in comparison when any I’ve ever ordered at an actual Indian Food restaurant.
My daughter didn’t eat her cottage pie, after only a bite. She said it wasn’t very good. I do make cottage pie, at home, and she loves that. I am not sure what went wrong?
The Dessert, pictured, is gluten free, but not dairy free. They did not have anything creative for a gluten free AND dairy free dessert, save rice dream ice cream…plain. I can’t say it’s a repeat for us, though if you think those menu items sound good to YOU, then give it a try! It was nice to have so many options for the entree.
No reservation needed, we were able to stop in for lunch. While they did not have a gluten free menu, they did have gluten free fish and chips on their menu. We did not order this, and instead I ordered a safe meal of boiled potatoes, steamed broccoli, and chicken. Once again, the chefs were hesitant to send out aioli that was meant to come with the chicken. Though aioli is typically dairy free, they were unsure and they brought a pesto sauce instead. The pesto was a simple oil and basil blend that worked nicely. My daughter ordered her usual, which is a gluten free burger and vegetables. We all enjoyed our meal.
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 lovely in decor. Attention to detail is unsurpassed at this resort. The location is popular for breakfast and we enjoyed dining early, by 8am.
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 as always. I still recommend it. You can see our gluten free dairy free pancakes and safe items from the buffet, here.
We always love Crystal Palace breakfast before park opening. It has been a family favorite, but this time some favorites have changed. The potatoes that we loved are a different variety with onions and peppers and less overall seasoning. The eggs that used to be gluten free and dairy free are no longer dairy free, so we ordered side of dairy free eggs. The last two times we were here, the whipped cream on the buffet was dairy free, but it was not this time. So, while the available options were still good, some of our favorites were not as good. Our chef did not offer to make pancakes or waffles, and instead, he encouraged us to eat a muffin. Upon asking for gluten free pancakes, however, he was happy to oblige. So, be sure to ask if there is something you were hoping for! Often the chef can accommodate.
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 […]
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 dined here, I did get a tummy ache. I can’t figure out why, because my food does seem safe. I had a chicken dish over rice with broccolini. The vegetable was overcooked, which was disappointing, but the rice was seasoned well and the chicken was divine. I was too full for dessert, so I skipped that.
Bean had a burger with a second plate of toppings. She had a lot of fun building her burger. She loves tomatoes and pickles, so this was a good one for her. For dessert, the chef brought her the white chocolate Mickey puzzle with edible paints. She adored being able to eat that It was gluten free (may have had dairy, we did not confirm). This normally comes with 2 large cookies, so we had those sent out on a second plate and we gave those to others at the table. This dessert is very fun for the kids, very creative. Bean mixed her paint colors to expand the choices, and then she painted and signed before eating. The SteakHouse at Yacht Club had the same dessert. These are 2 table service credit meals. I thought it was good, but the atmosphere is what makes this worth more, and not the food. The food did not taste better than the food we get at Coral Reef, and that is a 1 table service choice. If you are looking for a quiet place to take a group on short notice, though, this is a nice choice.
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 make breakfast my favorite meal of the trip time and time again. This is Bean’s plate and she has a dairy free gluten free whipped topping. Who knew?
