    My friend whom I'm traveling with has a severe allergy to gluten which can show up in many non-food items, even shampoo/conditioner/body wash/soap/laundry detergent. Are the products that are in the resorts GF? We will be staying at AoA. Thanks.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kim! So exciting to hear that you will be visiting Disney's Art of Animation, one of my favorite resorts! You will love its décor and giant pools!

    The food court area offerings should not be of concern at all since they should be able to provide you with different gluten-free options; however, there is no indication that the toiletries or detergent found in this hotel are gluten-free.You could wait until you arrive and discuss this with the Cast Member at the Front Desk to see if they could help you get some gluten-free items for you but there is no guarantee they will be able to accommodate this request. I would recommend that you either bring your own from home or order some supplies using an online vendor. You can get those items shipped to your resort hotel and that way make sure she is safe and ready to enjoy every minute of her vacation with you. If your package is handled by Bell Services, a $6.00 fee per order (*prices are always subject to change without prior notice) will be added to your room charges for it to be paid at check-out. 

    Request to speak to a special-diets trained Cast Member or chef at every dining location you visit to make sure you can discuss your needs in detail. They will be happy to accommodate your needs and requests to the best of their ability. 

    Kim, I hope this answer is helpful. I am sure you and your friend will have a blast! Please come back with more questions, it's our pleasure to help you plan the most magical vacation!

    See ya real soon,

Meet the Panelist: Desiree, Peru

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
