    We are planning a special trip to Walt Disney World in early 2025, staying at the Yacht Club, at the club level. Do the food options in the club level lounge include gluten free options, or how would we communicate that need to staff?

    Hi Margie!

    Welcome back to planDisney!  I'm excited to see that your Disney Parks plans are taking you across the continent to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth in 2025!  It sounds like you have an amazing vacation plan, including a Club Level stay at Disney's Yacht Club Resort

    I love Disney's BoardWalk area as there are so many perks to this location.  Not only will you find yourself within walking distance or a leisurely boat ride of both Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT, but you'll also be near some of my favorite dining locations.  In fact, Ale & Compass Restaurant, located inside Disney's Yacht Club Resort, is one of my favorite hidden gems in Walt Disney World Resort.  You can also find Minnie's Beach Bash Breakfast character dining at Cape May Cafe in the neighboring Disney's Beach Club Resort.  Another favorite activity of mine can also be found within walking distance of Yacht Club - Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf!  

    Several benefits come with staying at a Club Level room including a variety of complimentary food and beverage options throughout the day in your exclusive lounge.  Margie, I chatted with a Cast Member this morning and she shared that you will find gluten-free options available, such as fruit and eggs on the morning continental breakfast, but those selections may be more limited than what you find at other Disney restaurants.  She did suggest calling to note that your party requires gluten-free options after your reservation has been made.  Reservations haven't opened yet for 2025 vacation packages, but keep your eyes open over the next few weeks and months for when they are released!  

    When you're ready to start making more dining arrangements for your trip, you'll find Disney has many Allergy-Friendly Options available and noted at the bottom of the menus available to view online or in the My Disney Experience Mobile App.  Remember, that staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel means that you get an added advantage in making those dining reservations as you can make plans for the entire length of your stay (up to 10 days) 60 days before your arrival.  If you're a foodie like me, I'd suggest looking at adding the Disney Dining Plan to your vacation package!

    Margie, I hope that you have a wonderful time planning for your special trip to Walt Disney World Resort.  Since it sounds like you're hoping to fill this trip with lots of pixie dust, don't forget to check out the Enchanting Extras Collections for more magical ideas!  If you have more vacation planning questions, please see me or any of my panelist pals again!
