    Can you tell me more about gluten-free options on DCL? I've read that there are GF options at Cabana's by request. Is there anywhere else that has "hidden" items that I can take advantage of? Are the dinner menu options labeled GF?

    Hi there, Kathryn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I know you must be getting so excited for your upcoming Disney Cruise Line vacation!  Before you know it, you will be sailing away to a vacation you won’t forget aboard the beautiful Disney Fantasy!

    Disney Cruise Line does such a fantastic job of accommodating different food allergies and dietary restrictions!  As a mom to two little ones with dietary restrictions, I am very familiar with the onboard options available!  You will find that all the menus (and dessert menu, too!) in the main dining rooms that you will dine in for dinner will have gluten free menu items clearly marked on them.  Additionally, you can speak directly with your dining servers to ensure that you are provided with all options available and you can request that gluten free bread be served to you each evening as well!  Many times you can ask to review the next night’s menu and make any requests for the following day so that any accommodations can be made by the chefs preparing your meals.  If something does not look good to you, don't be afraid to request something from a different menu or something else for your meal.

    I do recommend contacting Disney Cruise Line to note your reservation prior to your sailing that you have someone in your travel party that needs gluten free options so that they are aware prior to your arrival onboard!  I believe you will be pleasantly surprised with the accommodations and options available to you during your sailing!

    Wishing you a FANTASTic Disney Cruise filled with many magical memories!  And don't worry - no one leaves the Mickey Boat hungry!

    Happy Sailing!
