Eating out when you have a food allergy can be difficult, and it can be even more difficult when you’re on vacation. After finding out I was allergic to gluten I had to be super careful about what I ate, especially when it came to eating out. But on my first trip to Disney Springs since then I was pleasantly surprised by all the gluten free options Disney had to offer!
Disney takes food allergies very, very seriously. Whenever I requested food that was gluten free at a restaurant, the manager would come up and make sure I explained my allergy to them and they were more than able to accommodate it!
Here are some of my favorite gluten free restaurants and foods at Disney Springs
We went to The Boathouse for brunch and the food was absolutely amazing! When I requested a gluten-free menu, our server told me all about their gluten-free options and a manager also came out to make sure I placed my order with him so it wouldn’t have any gluten in it. I got the gluten-free crab cake benedict, which came topped with two poached eggs and a delicious hollandaise sauce. They had plenty of other gluten-free options as well, so this is definitely the perfect spot for a nicer gluten-free meal.
For a sit-down restaurant that’s slightly more casual I recommend Planet Hollywood. They also took my request for gluten-free food very seriously. Planet Hollywood is known for its burgers, and luckily they have gluten-free buns so any one of them can be made allergy-friendly! While most French fries are naturally gluten-free, there is some cross comtaminaton in their fries if you have Celiac disease, however their yummy steak fries are completely gluten free and delicious!
4 Rivers Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck
If you’re looking for a quick service restaurant or a small snack, the 4 Rivers Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck is a solid option. Their Cantina Trio, consisting of corn tortilla chips, pico de gallo, guacamole and queso, is the perfect sharing snack and it gluten free. They also have burrito bowls and tacos, all of which are gluten free.
Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC
If you’re looking for something sweet look no further than Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC. This bakery has so many amazing confections, all of which are gluten free. They also have many vegan options as well! They had so many cookies, cupcakes and other gluten-free sweets. I got the Red Velvet bar and it was absolutely incredible!
Many Disney Springs restaurants have gluten-free options, all you have to do is ask!
