Some of our favorite gluten free dairy free meals have been enjoyed at the resorts of Walt Disney World. Here is an assortment for you to peruse!
As I mention below, we were happy to find that the restaurants at Coronado Springs Resort have improved, dramatically, from prior years when it comes to gluten free dairy free food options. We went to the Maya Grill for dinner, and we could easily look at the large menu in front of the restaurant to see what our gluten free choices were, as they were properly labeled. For some reason, they were not labeled on the restaurant menus, so it was helpful for us to look before going in. Removing dairy is not difficult, so I ordered the Airliner chicken with steamed broccoli and rice on the side. It was delicious! I don’t know how they made that chicken so yummy, but I just loved this meal. I intentionally ordered as safely as possible to avoid any stomach trouble and my tummy was just fine. I am so happy
we had gluten free dairy free options, AND even happier that they were so yummy!
My daughter ordered a steak, rice, corn, guacamole dish that did include cheese. This is a lot of dairy for her stomach, but she felt good to order it after a day of eating no dairy, otherwise. I would order without the cheese. They brought her corn shells and she loved
During our trip to the Coronado Springs Resort, we decided to give Pepper Market, Maya, and the other eateries of the resort a chance to redeem themselves from past trips. The results? A success! To start with, I noticed that some of the menus posted…
Hands down the WORST experience of our two trip. We ate there 3-4 times and each time was awful. The manager, hosts, and wait staff just refused to help us with our dietary restrictions, and the chefs were just too busy and uneducated to provide us safe meals (for example, handed me bacon that was sitting in a bowl of bread, went to put the batter in a gluten cooking waffle iron, stuff like that).
When I asked for help, I was treated rudely. One woman actually threw her hands up in the air and stormed off, shaking her head, when I asked her where I could find something that was held behind a counter. The manager barked a rude command at a host, totally ignoring me, when I asked him for help with our allergies. This restaurant is not run by Disney and it shows. This is the only NON Disney run restaurant we ate at, and the only place we had these problems. We do love the resort, but next time we stay there, we will plan our meals elsewhere.
