Sci Fi Diner Dinner

Sci Fi Diner Dinner

We all love this place! When we came in, they gave us new allergen free menus. One was for gluten free options and the other was for dairy free options. Because I needed both, it was a bit odd and confusing, but the chef came…

The Writer’s Stop Dessert

The Writer’s Stop Dessert

I ducked in to grab my husband a coffee while he rode Star Tours for the 3rd time, with the kids. I asked if they had anything gluten free this time, and they did. They had a Mickey Mouse shaped macaroon in bright green or…

Sci-Fi Diner Dinner

Sci-Fi Diner Dinner

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…

ABC Commissary

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…

Backlot Express Lunch

Backlot Express Lunch

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…

Rosie’s Cafe Lunch

Rosie’s Cafe Lunch

We ate a quick lunch here, hitting the stand at 11:15am to avoid the rush. They had a gluten free bun option, but it would have taken longer (wasn’t at location) so we opted to skip it. This was not very good, but it was food, and it was safe. That is about all I can say for it, however. I would not recommend this stop. In addition, I found it stressful to order a special request diet at the stand when there was a line forming behind me and I was holding up the show for everyone while we waited for a manager. There was only one cash register operating at the time, which added to my stress over the meal. Again, it was food, but that is all I can say about it!

Brown Derby Dessert

Brown Derby Dessert

We were able to stop in without a reservation for dessert. Perhaps my favorite dessert of Walt Disney World for our allergy requirements is found here. It’s the Mango Sorbet with berries. It’s delightful! I asked for a specialty coffee drink, but they did not…

Hollywood and Vine Dinner

Hollywood and Vine Dinner

This was a buffet diner. Because of the condition of the buffet, I opted to ask for our food to be prepared in the back (there was way too much obvious cross contamination here, globs of food dropped in the wrong places throughout). The chef…

Brown Derby Dinner

Brown Derby Dinner

The chef here was just great. He brought my daughter veggies, which she loved, as a perfect starter.

He brought us the EngerG rolls, warmed, and served with fennel infused olive oil to dip our bread in! YUM!!! What a great idea, by the way!

The chicken was disappointing. It was very dry. The potatoes and sweet dressing on them were very good, though!

My daughter had a hot dog and french fries. The bun is gluten free, dairy free.

Hollywood and Vine Dinner

Hollywood and Vine Dinner

Hollywood and Vine at MGM was fantastic. They had so many great veggie choices and the chef grilled salmon and steak for us too! We enjoyed homemade gluten free brownies (made that day). They were so wonderful. This was another character meal with singing and…
