Hi Lesley, glad this post has helped

I'm sorry you had a special issue, that can happen but thankfully quite rare.

All full service restaurants will customise something for you, so yes you'll be fine at Mama Melrose Disney Special Diets are now recommending those of us with 'special needs' contact the restaurant a couple of days beforehand to discuss the menu, but also make sure you have your gluten allergy noted on your ADR.

I have been sent a further list of counter service locations and their full gluten free offerings if you would like me to email you - just pm me if you would.

update Update re. Pizzafari

Good news for those of us who like the gluten free pizzas - I have today been advised that Pizzafari is still serving gluten free pizza, it was apparently a change in brand of pizza (i.e. part of the standardisation process previously advised) not the removal

I have just returned from Orlando and as a coeliac diagnosed a year ago, I can recommend the following:- Raglan Road, Rainforest Cafe, T Rex - Chef came to the table on all 3 to discuss what I could have, Bubba Gumps had a good choice, Outback Steakhouse, knew all about it, Olive Garden had a basic menu, Chevy's chef came out but the restaurant which was the best was Pizza Fusion (sand lake road) that not only could I have any pizza off the menu (with Gluten free base they made) but chocolate brownie as well and their food is organic. Only down side was Applebees that could offer me basic chicken or fish with white rice so I didn't bother staying.

Wheat Free Food

Hi Everyone,
I have a wheat intolerance not a gluten intolerance, although there is a bit of an overlap I just wondered if much of the bread and pizza bases etc are also wheat free?
I know that in the UK some breads, cakes etc are GF but not WF.. just wondered if that was the same for the states? When I was in Illinois in the summer i didn't come across many GF products that I could eat so I just wondered it Florida was an exception?
Also, is the general concensus to ring in advance for any specific requirements? People never seem to know the difference between GF and WF for some reason and i usually end up taking the risk with GF products.
Thanks in advance!

hello stephanie, welcome to the Dibb...I'm sure Clare will be along to help you soon, but you can note wheat allergy at Disney restaurants and the Chef will come out and speak to you about you requirements. Most of the counter service locations have a binder with specific information too.

Last Oct, I was told that lots of the Disney products are sourced from Wonder?... my DD2 has a peanut allergy and couldn't eat any bread because none were cooked on premises and could not therefore be guaranteed.

Thanks for the updates Shona, it sounds like you had a fantastic time

Hi and welcome Stephanie Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye and barley so anything that is truly gluten free will not contain wheat, rye or barley products, most are made of rice

However, if you're concerned then like Ruth says have a note made on your ADRs that you cannot eat wheat, but anything that is truly gluten free will not contain wheat as us coeliacs can not have wheat.

Thanks for the comments guys! Really appreciated

Maybe it's different in florida because my friend has coeliacs and she gets prescribed food from the hospital which has wheat in it with the protein removed, which is quite common over here. In starbucks and other coffee shops they sell a lot of muffins etc that still contain wheat without the protein. But if they use rice based products then it sounds like i should be fine!

Thank you again...
just one question, sorry, but what's an ADR?

Stephanie
