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 turned out to be very funny surprises, so I’ll just say it was a fun time, and very loud! We had a blast. The food was good, too. Chef junior made us gluten free dairy free pancakes and all the breakfast goodies featured. We had more than enough to eat! I wasn’t a huge fan of the dinner at Whispering Canyon, but I LOVE the breakfast! Also, they have rice and soy milk available for coffee, if you ask!
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 was the worst I have ever seen. The inside was a bizarre texture that was nearly gelatinous! Luckily, there was plenty of other food to eat. The eggs at Sunshine Season were better, but this was a nice meal for the credits, and who doesn’t love visiting Animal Kingdom Lodge?
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…
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.
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…
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 and eggs with salsa and rice milk to drink. It was all very yum. Bean had eggs, meats, fruits and Mickey waffles as well as rice milk to drink. She loved her breakfast. The kids enjoyed the character interaction quite a bit, as well.
Our service left something to be desired, but it was okay. One thing to be aware of: if you are celebrating and you let your service staff know, they sometimes bring out a cupcake for celebration. The problem is that we have had multiple staff members hand our daughter regular wheat flour cupcakes. They know she has allergies, but they just don’t think of it when it comes to the end of the meal and they are delivering their treat. This has happened 3 times, and none of the places offered her a low allergen dessert. They just left the allergen dessert at the table. This waitress said “Oh, you can’t eat that, but Happy Anniversary, and you will have to write in your tip because it’s not included”. Yeah, really. But still, we enjoyed the meal very much and the chef was helpful and friendly. I can recommend it, and especially if your little ones want some face time with Minnie, Donald, or Goofy.
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…
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 not dairy free. It was an Amys pizza. Amy’s does make a good dairy free and gluten free pizza with the soy free Daiya cheese, but we just brought enzymes for Bean for this treat. She so rarely has pizza! I had a vegetable stew that was dairy free. It was very good with nice flavors, although I should have ordered something cooler for such a hot day. For dessert, Bean had a dairy free ice cream and I had the sorbet trio (dairy free/gluten free). I truly loved the pineapple flavor, although I didn’t care much for the other two. I was so full, it was more of a final tasting, which worked out fine. We enjoyed our meal. It wasn’t a favorite, but I would still recommend it for anyone on dining plan 1 table service credit. It’s easy to get in on short notice, and it was pretty quiet for a Disney restaurant.
This is a lovely resort. We had a very nice meal. My daughter enjoyed filet mignon with fresh steamed greens and gluten free potatoes. I had the above pictured chicken with potatoes, onions, greens, and tomatoes. All was dairy and gluten free. The service was…
Here we had the worst service of our trip. We checked in at 5pm and then they forgot us. At 5:30 we went back and they said “whoops, sorry!”.
That was just the beginning…All through dinner, the service was awful. Slow, rude, unprofessional. This was NOT what I expected from the
Kona at the Poly! I am hoping we just caught them on an off night (I had heard so many wonderful reviews, that I think this must be the case!)
. The chef we worked with was not anywhere near as creative or helpful as any other chef we talked to on Disney property. He basically brought
us the bare bones. I asked for rolls, and we get a basket of them with nothing to put on them. The salad is torn down to just lettuce, the chicken, while it looks delicious, was terribly dry and bland. The only good thing was the side salad with dinner (on the plate below) and the non dairy ice cream for dessert!
There was one other good thing, my daughter liked her rice noodles. She didn’t like her chicken, and she didn’t eat anything other than the noodles, but at least she liked them!
The Chef offered to make us gluten free pasta, but I declined because there were 6 other people in our group who would be eating buffet right away and I didn’t want to have two of us sitting and waiting. Next time I may think to call 10 minutes ahead for the gluten free pasta!
There were many choices for myself, but not so much that my daughter loved. Many of the foods were too spicy for her, although I enjoyed that. The coconut salmon, potatoes, and mango vinaigrettes were my favorites here. I have read wonderful reviews of what the chefs will do for allergy restrictions at Boma, so do take your time to find out!
The Dessert was a sorbet. She enjoyed it.
Chef Eddie, at Mara, was wonderful. He made our daughter some gluten free dairy free waffles each morning, and he made me dairy free eggs served with fruit. This was counter service so we purchased drinks and fruit separately. He was so nice, as were…
The Chef offered to make us a special dish or let us choose from gluten free dairy free choices on the buffet.
My daughter loved the fresh fruits and veggies. I adored two wonderful salads available and the chicken from the kids station!
There was one salad in particular that I adored. It was a mouth watering blend of greens, beans, tomatoes, olives, oils, and delight. I loved it!
The chicken was just perfect and only seasoned with salt and pepper. Yum yum yum.
And for dessert, Toffutti ice or Rice Dream cream was available (we don’t eat Toffuti at home, and someone emailed me to let me know there is controversy about if the Vanilla used in Toffuti is actually 100% gluten free, so do check on that before you consume!). The atmosphere was loud and busy, but it was worth it! Everyone had a great time, and full belly.
