    Is it possible to order a gluten-free cupcake for dessert at Chef Mickey's? My son & husband can have regular b-day cake, but I can't, & I want to celebrate with my son on his special day! Also, can you get a GF cake/dessert at Le Cellier (Mother's


    Disney does a great job of helping people with special dietary needs, including gluten-free diets. I have a daughter with a tree nut allergy, so I am versed in working with them on special requests, and they have always gone that extra mile to make my daughter feel welcome and appreciated.

    What I recommend you do is have them tag your reservations with this dietary request. That is a start. Then e-mail and tell them of your request. They will take it from there. Make sure you give them at least 2 weeks.

    What typically happens is they will reply with questions on your request. You can also anticipate a visit from the chef at your table service restaurants to review what is gluten free, and what is not.

    BOTTOM LINE: Disney will accommodate your needs and reasonable requests in a way that will make you feel good about visiting there. But you have to tell them what you need/want, so that they can help.

    FYI, if you get to go to Downtown Disney, make sure you swing by Babycakes NYC. They are proof that gluten-free does not mean flavor free! Yummy!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
