    Hi there, We are headed to Disney land with my special needs son. He has multiple food allergies including milk, eggs and gluten. Where can we get gluten free Mickey waffles? Thanks!

    Hi there, Melissa!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney. Your Disneyland Resort vacation is just around the pixie-dusted corner! I hope you and your son are getting excited for all the magic that awaits as you put the finishing touches on your plans.

    I think you’ll be happy to know that the resort’s dining locations are extremely accommodating when it comes to dietary restrictions due to common food allergies. Many restaurants, including full-service and quick-service locations, offer allergy-friendly menus broken down by category in addition to alternate meal options. 

    Mickey waffles are on my must-eat list too, and a gluten-free version can be made upon request during breakfast at most locations. In my experience, gluten-free buns and rolls can be requested at most restaurants, including Award Wieners in Disney California Adventure Park. Their All-Beef Hot Dog and Bacon Street Dog (when served on an allergy-friendly bun) and the Filmstrip Fries are gluten-free. You should also be able to request pizza with gluten-free crust and rice noodles with marinara sauce for your son at locations in both theme parks.

    Please double check in person at the resort before your son enjoys a food item I’ve recommended, as ingredients and menus are always subject to change. Don’t hesitate to ask to speak with a chef or a Cast Member trained in special diets when you arrive at a dining location regarding any specific concerns you have about your son’s needs. 

    I hope this information is helpful, Melissa. Please stop by again with more questions as you continue to plan your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Wishing you magic,
