    Any gluten free/celiac safe food service at Epcot and Disney Springs? I see “they will try to accomodate” but I don’t want to make reservations, to get there for my birthday to find out the only option is a side salad.

    Welcome to planDisney, Dana. I'm delighted you came to us with your question, especially as I know that dining forms a large part of the magic at Walt Disney World. Cast members work hard to ensure that ALL Guests, including those with dietary restrictions, can safely enjoy dining experiences at Walt Disney World.

    Did you know you can add gluten-free dietary restrictions to advanced dining reservations in My Disney Experience? You may also like to contact the Special Diets department before your trip to ensure you're doing nothing but celebrating your birthday! Once in a restaurant at Walt Disney World, I also would advise speaking directly with a Cast Member to ensure everyone understands the preparation needed to suit your dietary requirements. Most table-service and select quick-service restaurants have allergy-friendly menu options listed online with Gluten/Wheat Allergy-Friendly menus.

    My all-time favorite dining experience in EPCOT is Garden Grill Restaurant. They serve an allergy-friendly version of the Harvest Feast with charming character appearances. It's always a hit in our family, and you can have the comfort of knowing the feast at your table will be catered to your dietary needs. We always like to take a ride on Living with the Land beforehand, as we love seeing the source of our meal! 

    You can speak to a Cast Member about your dietary needs at Quick Service Dining locations. When using the My Disney Experience app to place a Mobile Order, you can filter your options by dietary preferences. This means you can easily find safe dishes, such as the allergy-friendly French Bistro Burger at Connections Eatery. So go ahead and order with confidence, knowing that your dietary needs will be taken care of.

    Ultimately, I know that the Cast Members at Walt Disney World want to ensure that each Guest has a magical dining experience and that your dietary needs will be accommodated in the most delicious way possible. I hope this information helps you to have the most enchanting time at the Most Magical Place on Earth, Dana. 

    Happy dining and happy birthday!
