Disney Planning - Gluten Free Resources

This is the first in a series of posts that I am excited to write about being Gluten Free when you are at WDW.

I can't wait to review all the snacks and places we try while we are there, but this post is all about planning. Today I am sharing some great resources when planning your trip. I have found that especially with travel, it is great to be prepared when you need to eat gluten free. The most frustrating thing while on a trip is to be looking for a place to eat while you are hungry.

These are some of the blogs/websites I have been frequenting to compile my list of safe places.

The great thing about Disney is that most any place can make sure you have something safe to eat or snack on. 

There are also a few things you should do before you get to the parks!
ONE When you make your Advance Dining Reservations, make sure to note your special diet on each reservation

TWO When you are 30 days out from your trip (they ask this is the earliest you do it because the menus/ingredients periodically change) email the Special Diets department at Disney; or call them at (407) 824-5967

They can send you a list of safe items, or the best places to eat
You can also ask them to make extra notes in all of your reservations about your special diets. Make sure you check especially with the hotel you are staying at to be sure about breakfast options.

THREE Talk to the Chef or Restaurant Manager when you arrive the restaurant.
