    My husband needs a gluten free diet. Where should we plan to eat and do we need any reservations? There will be 4 of us staying at Port Orleans from 3/25-3/30. Thanks

    Hi Dan!


    Congratulations on your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!


    You will be happy to know that there are many dining options available for your husband at the Walt Disney World Resort. We've visited while my youngest observed a gluten-free diet and were able to thoroughly enjoy many Disney Dining locations.


    This is what I recommend you do, contact Special Diets at They will send you an Guest Allergy/Dietary Request Form to complete. Make Advanced Dining Reservations (ADR) at table service restaurants by calling (407) WDW-DINE, and please alert the Cast Member of your husband's gluten intolerance. The Cast Member will notate each ADR. Write down the dates, times, locations, and ADR numbers for each table service restaurant you will be visiting. Complete the Guest Allergy/Dietary Request Form, making sure to include that information and send it back to


    If you book ADR online, you'll be able to make a special request to exclude gluten. In addition, it might be helpful to alert the wait-staff at the restaurant about your husband's gluten-free diet. Many times the chef on duty will come out to discuss the meal options that are available at the restaurant.


    In order to make informed decisions at counter service locations, be sure to request the "ingredients list book." Your husband can talk to the manager about his intolerance to gluten, and he will then be directed to suitable items that are safe for him to consume. Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you.


    Enjoy a most memorable visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
