    My 5 y. old daughter has celiac (gluten intolerance) and tree nut allergies. We have found the sit down restaurants cumbersome in the past - are there good options for a child her age at the counter service restaurants? If so, which ones?


    Disney is one of the most proactive restaurants when it comes to food allergies.

    Each counter service restaurants has a book with each item on its menu and its ingredients.  All you have to do is ask the cast member for it, and you can make the best choice for your daughter rather than relying on someone else.

    Some things to note:
    • Peco's Bills at Magic Kingdom has gluten-free buns for their hamburgers.  (It's hamburger "bar" makes it a favorite in our family.)
    • Toy Story Pizza Planet at Disney Studios makes a gluten-free pizza.  (Well, you can order it there.  I think it's made next door at Mama Melrose's.  Considering the pre-made crust that a regular pizza comes on, the gluten-free may actually make a tastier choice!)
    • Another family favorite is Flame-Tree BBQ at Animal Kingdom.  Lots of meat to choose from, including a barbecue chicken salad.
    • Studio Catering at Disney Studios offers a kids meal with a chicken leg, grapes and carrots.  In fact, most of the kids meals now at Disney offer the grapes and carrots instead of the usual fries.
    Wishing you a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
