We have never dined here for breakfast, and on our last day of the trip we ate a 10am breakfast. Chef Junior was quite the entertainer, as was our server. I forgot that the restaurant was themed and I don’t want to give away what…
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.
Why does the Coronado Resort have to be my favorite, but the restaurants have to be so TERRIBLE for people with allergies? Well, I gave it another try. I will say the they have improved from a few years ago. The chef, in the morning, made us gluten free pancakes that my daughter did enjoy. We went at opening to minimize confusion and cross contamination. The food was very bland, but safe. We went back for an evening meal and that was awful. The process of finding a chef to help us was ridiculous and while there are many people working, they do not help other stations. It was really unpleasant, as a dining experience. The food was reported to be safe, though I did end up feeling quite ill that evening. I, still, cannot recommend the Pepper Market for a meal if you have allergies, with the exception of going at opening and ordering VERY safe and smart for quick breakfast.
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…
I had my doubts about a gluten free safe meal at Katsura in Japan pavilion of Epcot, but we love sushi so we had to stop in and ask. The line was a little long and a little slow, but once we got to the counter, the people were very friendly, polite, and helpful. We were interested in the California rolls, which are premade. They were guaranteed to be free of gluten and free of dairy, so we were safe to eat them! Yay! They also brought out containers of gluten free soy sauce for us to use. For dessert option, there was not a gluten free dairy free choice, but the green tea ice cream is free of gluten. We were warned that there is a concern of cross contamination with the ice cream, but we took the risk and my daughter ate it. She enjoyed it and she did not get sick.
We really loved this as a counter service meal where we were able to use our dining plan quick service credits. Many of the items on the menu looked obviously unsafe, but if you are going in for sushi or maki rolls, you can find some fantastic options. We loved it!
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 hit rope drop and Soarin’, then we stopped at Sunshine Seasons for breakfast. We used our counter service for the meal you see. The chef made safe eggs for us. There was not a bread item to replace the biscuit in the counter service meal, so the chef gave us some fruit to share. Can I say that these eggs were the best I’ve had in a couple of years? They have some secret dairy free buttery flavor that was such a treat! It worked out great for us. We rode Soarin’, with the fast passes we got before riding, after breakfast. Win win win!
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…
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 order and it was stressful in that I held up two lines of hungry people in the process of waiting on the manager and cashier to complete the order. What we got: gluten free bun, burger, sides. Gluten free fries. Also, I ordered the rice from the curry and the grilled chicken from a sandwich and I had those put together in place of their chicken curry meal. Sorry, no photos from this trip. I did get the Enjoy Life Food Cookies, which I enjoyed with espresso found at the Writer’s Shop around the corner.
I can recommend this as a quick service option, but I still advise you to go early or late and avoid the crowd. Expect an additional 10 minute wait.
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. They had changed their hot dogs from all beef dogs to a new blend of meats, but after checking with the food service department, we found out that they are still gluten and dairy free.
Bean ordered a hot dog with a tapioca gluten free bun, grapes, and a brownie. Water to drink. She seemed to like this. There were condiments, although she opted not to eat them. So, it was quick and easy. I am not a fan of hot dogs, so I passed on this meal.
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…
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 seating.
The girls settled with their toys at the table with dad while I waited. The counter service waits do take a while with the special allergy requests.
The longest I have waited for a meal has been an hour. The quickest has been 15 minutes. Because of the long waits, I prefer table service dining, but we were taking advantage of the dining plan this trip, and doing both.
Here they had a gluten free dairy free chicken tender/nugget, baked fries, and EnjoyLifeFood cookies. Not a health food meal, but quite a rarity in our dietary selections. In fact, this may have been Bean’s first chicken nugget?
She liked it. She didn’t eat them all, but she did enjoy her lunch
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 – served with dairy free butter). He also topped Bean’s egg dish with a gluten free dairy free cheese. She loved it.
