    This is our first disney trip ever and we have it booked as Magic Your Way plus dining. Our daughter is celiac and type 1 diabetic. How can I find out which places have the best gluten free foods. Help! Thank-you!

    Hi Regan,

    Most special diets can be accommodated at Walt Disney World, including diabetes and celiac disease. There is an entire department at Disney Dining dedicated to helping guests with food allergies, food intolerances, and religious-based food requirements. Just send an email describing your situation (at least 14 days in advance of your trip) to A cast member will get back to you with the information you need to make sure that your family has a safe, and delicious, visit to WDW.

    Moms Panelist Anna offers some great advice for guests dealing with diabetes at Disney World HERE. There is a Guest Assistance card that you can get from the Guest Relations offices at the theme parks. Depending on the level of card you are offered, you may be able to bypass some of the longer lines in the parks.

    A great resource for you is a book called PassPorter's Open Mouse for Walt Disney World and the Disney Cruise Line. This is available through Open Mouse gives incredibly detailed information for Disney guests with any sort of challenge.

    Additionally, you can go to Click on the "search" button and search on the term "diabetes." There are some extensive articles there that give wonderful information on how parents of diabetic children have coped with the challenges posed by a Disney vacation. I'm sure you will find some help there.

    Have a great trip!
