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…

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…
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…
I ordered the whole fish with rice and vegetables. The fish was prepared nicely, but the description of a soy lime sauce was misleading. Instead this tasted decidedly sweet and more like an orange maple. I am not a fan of sweet with fish, so I did not enjoy this as the sweet sauce over powered the entire dish. Also, it was incredibly difficult to eat as all components werestacked. The rice was buried and the wild greens on top in the way, to some extend. We enjoyed this beautiful restaurant and atmosphere, but I would not recommend it based on our food. We had better food at other locations around the Disney resorts and Epcot. My husband ate the surf and turf, and while he agreed it was good, it didn’t live up to the expectation we had going in.
Dessert consisted of brownies, tofutti ice cream, marshmallows and optional Hershey’s chocolate.
We stopped for a quick late lunch. The options were typical : gluten free bun, burger. The chef may have been able to prepare more foods. We did not inquire further. They did have gluten free brownies and dairy free ice cream, but the chef and staff did not seem to know where items were located and everything took a little extra time to track down. Still, they can handle allergy needs and they were very friendly. The ordering process can be confusing as they have multiple windows to order from and each window has a different menu. Payment is taken at a separate line.
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…
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…
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.
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 when they were available. We got them to take with us on the cruise.
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…
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 get in. Luckily, we made reservations 6 months prior. The meal was a lot of fun. The chef brought Bean out this meal that was all gluten free and dairy free. We had a really nice time and I can see why people enjoy Ohana so much. Everyone is in a good mood here, and there is no rush at all. We spent nearly 2 hours at this meal and it was a great experience. The kids left with leis to wear and smiles on their faces.
Our dessert was transformed here, too. This is such a nice touch when every dining establishment serves the same brownie, ice cream and cookie (gluten free dairy free).
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.
Again, loud and crowded, but the food was very good. The chicken was tender and delicious. Dessert was nothing too special (Itzakadoozie pop). But did I mention how good the chicken was (second chicken pictured below…I didn’t actually taste the kids grilled chicken)?
We had been here before and we had a great time. This time, we had a bad experience with our service, but good food and good time all in all.
The chef came out promptly, as per usual, but for some reason, there was nearly an hour delay in getting food out to my daughter.
Meanwhile, the rest of our group had finished eating and my daughter was sadly looking at her plate wondering why her rice pasta, veggies and meats were still no where to be seen. When her food finally arrived, she did enjoy it, and the rest of the interactions here were very fun. The manager did not charge us for her meal, due to the extreme delay.
