    Have never cruised and considering a Disney cruise. I have 2 questions...Can the cruiseline accommodate a gluten free diet? Also, if we were to order an adult type non alcoholic beverage on the boat or Castaway island, will we be charged for it?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Jaynee!  I am so very glad that you have sailed my way today.

    I LOVE that you are considering a Disney Cruise Line vacation!  Once my family and I discovered cruising with Captain Mickey it became our favorite way to travel.  You get all the greatness you love of the parks and resorts - unmatched service, fun for all ages, amazing food, lots of character - with the ability to explore the world!  Once you hear your name announced as you step aboard the first ship you will never be the same.

    We traveled just over a year and a half ago with my mother in law who required a gluten free diet.  She was floored with the care taken to ensure her needs were met.  Disney Cruise Line offers Rotational Dining, which means your service team travels with you every night to each of the dining rooms.  This level of service is unmatched as your service team becomes family (and experts on your favorites!) and is perfect if you have specific dietary needs.  Let Disney know before you board and then talk to your service team your first night at dinner.  They will point out items on the menu that are gluten free each night and find additional options if needed.  I was blown away by how much care they showed to ensure her meals were beyond her expectations.

    Disney Cruise Line has some great mocktails both onboard and on Castaway Cay.  The are available for an extra charge which will be billed directly to your stateroom, so no need to carry your wallet.  Grab a drink and relax in the sun!

    Have a great time planning your first Disney Cruise Jaynee!  Sail on back with any more questions you have, we love to help!  Angie
