    How do you find restaurants that serve gluten free food for our son who has celiac disease?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Donn!

    What a great question!

    Guests can dine deliciously throughout Walt Disney World, finding dietary accommodations for everyone. Let's take a look at options!

    First, read through this Walt Disney World overview of Special Dietary Requests to become familiar with choices at most Table-Service and major Quick-Service Restaurants. When you make an Advanced Dining Reservation, specify that there is an allergy in your group. Upon arrival, your party will be noted as having an allergy.

    To help select restaurants, look at menus, noting those that mention"Allergy-Friendly Offerings". When Dining at Magic Kingdom Park, for example, that includes Cinderella's Royal Table, The Plaza Restaurant, and Tony's Town Square Restaurant. At buffet locations such at The Crystal Palace, you'll receive an allergen guide, and an explanation of dishes your son can enjoy. At many Quick-Service restaurants, Gluten/Wheat Allergy-Friendly items are actually listed on the online menus. Some of these at Magic Kingdom Park include Columbia Harbour HouseCosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe, and Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe. All are family favorites!

    At Disney's Hollywood Studios, ask for the Allergy-Friendly Menu at The Hollywood Brown Derby, 50's Prime Time Cafe, and Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano. For Quick-Service, check out Gluten/Wheat Allergy-Friendly items listed for ABC CommissaryBacklot ExpressCatalina Eddie's, and PizzeRizzo.

    Dining at EPCOT, Allergy-Friendly menus are available at Le Cellier Steakhouse, Coral Reef Restaurant, and Tutto Italia Ristorante. At Quick-Service restaurants, Cast Members can help select allergy-friendly items listed on a guide, too.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Park's Tusker House Restaurant offers an allergen guide, and both Flame Tree Barbecue and  Satu'li Canteen list Gluten/Wheat Allergy-Friendly items online.

    These are just a smattering of what's available throughout Walt Disney World, Donn. Please send us more questions as you plan your stay; we love to help!
