    Which resort restaurants or disney springs restaurants have dedicated gluten free fryers? child has anaphylactic wheat, barley & rye allergies and cannot risk cross contamination. I've tried getting info from special diets and have gotten nowhere.

    Hello  Stella,

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for reaching out! 

    I'm sorry that you are having difficulty getting the help you need. I tried my best to figure it out for you! I want you to know that Walt Disney World takes food allergies very seriously and it is in your best interest to clearly communicate your needs in advance and when you order to Walt Disney World Cast Members.

    I spoke with a Cast Member who informed me that it is not definitely known or guaranteed which location has designated gluten-free fryers as it can change. They advised that you do what you have already done and reach out via email to to complete a Special Dietary Request Form as soon as you can.  The website states they would like this completed no more than 14 days before your trip. While every restaurant will take every measure possible to ensure your food is safe they cannot guarantee 100 percent that every request is satisfied. I can speak with assurance though that if your daughter has an allergy to wheat, barley, and rye they will not be using the same fryer as they would fry their regular wheat-containing food.  

    My good friend has Celiac disease and is very sensitive to even microscopic contamination with gluten. She told me that she finds visiting the Parks a relief, as she has never had any issues with her meals while dining at any restaurant that is operated by Walt Disney World. Combined with having a picky child she has found that eating a meal with her family is a joy when in the Parks. Whether it is Quick Service or Table Service she finds that when she notifies them of her situation before she orders they bring either a Team Leader or chef to her to discuss the issue and go over the entire order. They then make sure her food is specially prepared and delivered in a safe manner and follow up again. Her favorite foods are the chicken tenders at Hurricane Hanna's Waterside Bar and Grill located at Disney's Beach Club Resort very close to the International Gateway at EPCOT and the Parmigiana di Pollo at Trattoria al Forno at Disney's Boardwalk Resort. She finds the breading to be delicious and flavorful. 

    I hope you have a wonderful trip and I am sorry I cannot get you the specific details you wanted. The information just changes so quickly but I know that Cast Members at the food service locations in Walt Disney World will work to do their best for you and your daughter if you just let them know. 

    Please let me know if you have any more questions and have a safe journey!
