    We want to catch the fireworks from dinner . We need a kid friendly menu that has lots of gluten free options . Which restaurant would you recommend?

    Aloha, Anna! Thank you for bringing this great question to us at planDisney!

    Can you believe you're only a couple of weeks away from your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth? I'm so excited for you! I imagine you're feeling a little like Cinderella waiting for the clock to strike midnight. But before you arrive, let's talk about dining and fireworks!

    Anna, there are a few locations where you'll be able to have a view of the nighttime spectacular in Magic Kingdom Park while enjoying your dinner from a nearby restaurant. My personal suggestion would be to make a reservation at 'Ohana in Disney's Polynesian Village Resort for its spectacular views and allergy-friendly menu (take a peek at the bottom of the menu page!). Some other options may be California Grill in Disney's Contemporary Resort or Narcoossee's in Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. 

    However, since advance dining reservations can be made 60 days prior to your arrival date, there may be limited availability for these restaurants during your trip. But Hakuna Matata – no worries! I have a few more suggestions for you.
    • Consider ordering a quick-service meal, then settling in for a great viewing of Disney Enchantment. If you're in Magic Kingdom Park, I'd recommend placing a mobile order for Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe (which offers a great allergy-friendly menu!). If you're outside of a park, perhaps you'd like to mobile order at Capt. Cook's in Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, then walk out to the beach to watch the fireworks. In fact, you will be able to browse the menus for appropriate gluten-free options on the My Disney Experience app so your meals and snacks will be ready right when you need them to be!
    • If you're looking for an option with a reserved viewing spot for Disney Enchantment, you can try to grab a reservation for one of the Magic Kingdom 50th Fireworks Dessert Parties. Though I don't see an allergy-friendly menu listed online, you can always reach out to a Cast Member to see if there are gluten-free snacks available.
    • I would also recommend reaching out to the Special Diets team for your child if there is a need for four or more allergy requests, requires pureed meals, or adheres to a medically-restrictive diet. 
    I hope I was able to point you in the right direction, Anna! If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to write back. After all, you've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon!
