Happy Ending at Storytellers Cafe (Disneyland),
March 24, 2008

Our family spent the week of Spring Break in Southern California and decided to venture to Disneyland for a day. Since the Disney company tends to be very well-versed in the subject of gluten-free dining, we didn't sweat the details of our meal planning too much. I found a mention online of the Storytellers Cafe in the Grand Californian Hotel, which is located in Downtown Disney, right between and within walking distance of both Disneyland and California Adventure. They supposedly had many gluten-free items to choose from on their menu. We booked a reservation a few days before our trip, but we did not talk to the chef in advance. The Storytellers Cafe is a cozy restaurant with fireplaces, a nice respite from the more casual restaurants in the park itself, where it can sometimes be hard to communicate with the chefs among all the harried parents and kids. When we were seated for dinner at our table, we did ask to speak to the chef, but unfortunately, our server could not find him in "his office." Strange, but it was early...5:30 pm. No worries, however, because our server was familiar with the gluten-free options. Our son (the only one in our family with Celiac) chose the gluten-free pizza, which was available with a range of toppings as well. It turned out to be one of the best gluten-free pizzas, due to the delicious crust. The rest of us opted for the buffet, which also had several choices which happened to be gluten- free, including prime rib, a chicken dish, mashed potatoes, salads, and fruit. The icing on the cake (literally) was a gluten- free flourless chocolate cheesecake for dessert. It was great that our son was able to indulge with the rest of us! The Storytellers Cafe proved to be a relaxing, civilized and happy ending to a fun-filled day in the parks.
