Disney does GF,

Disney does do GF! Our family of 4 (2 are GF) traveled for 6 days to Walt Disney World Resort this summer. What a great experience! Before leaving home - I researched each restaurant before making reservations to be sure there were enjoyable food options for us. (see Reservations must be made well in advance to assure you can dine at your chosen restaurant. (we planned our trip in 9 days - and did just fine). We purchased the dining plan - 1 table meal/1 counter meal and 1 snack each day. More than enough food for anyone. At each table service restaurant - the chef came to our table to review what GF options were available. Our first evening we dined at Tony's Town Square. I enjoyed shrimp scampi with warm dinner rolls......yum. The dessert choices were limited - most evenings only ice cream was available. We dined at 2 buffets - Mickey's backyard BBQ and 1900 Park Fare. I would avoid buffets if possible on our next trip. But to be fair - 1900 Park Fare prepared plates in the kitchen for us to avoid cross contamination. We also dined at the Captains Grille in the Yacht Club Resort. It wasnt part of our plan but it worked on a very rainy night. The food was good - but Chef Alberts special dessert for my daughter made the vacation. He put together a GF brownie, chocolate sauce.....there was more to it, but i cant recall the details. It looked SO special, tasted delicious - she was all smiles. It was Disney Magic. Many times for lunch we ate at counter service restaurants. I have to be honest - i got a little tired of chicken fingers and french fries by the end of our vacation - but there were a few lights that shone.....Flame Tree BBQ in the Animal Kingdom Park was a welcome change for lunch. Very good. Plan to wait at least 30 minutes for your specially prepared GF foods at the counter service restaurants - but that's the price you pay for safety. Overall - the food was quite good. Not over the top gourmet but you could eat a different GF meal every night of your vacation. That's worth something to me. Our previous vacations have all involved either renting a home or a hotel mini suite with a kitchen to make it through a GF vacation. And the moms out there know what that means - cooking on vacation. Not the worst thing to do but our Disney vacation was a true getaway for our entire family.
