    Hello! We are visiting in August with my daughter who have Celiac Disease. She loves Belle and The Beast. Is the Grey Stuff cupcake gluten free? She is so excited about our trip and is hoping to see Belle and all her other favorites.

    Hello Megan! Welcome to planDisney! We invite you to Be Our Guest while I provide an answer to your question!

    Belle and Beast’s happily-ever-after story is truly a tale as old as time! Because your daughter is such a huge fan of Belle and Beast a visit to Fantasyland at Magic Magic Kingdom Park must be included on your vacation checklist!

    I strongly encourage you to make advanced reservations at Be Our Guest Restaurant! Upon arrival to Fantasyland, your daughter will be in awe of Beast’s Castle sitting high atop a mountain in the back of Fantasyland! As you cross the bridge that Belle crossed going into the castle, you will find yourself seated in one of three dining rooms. The first (and my favorite) is the grand ballroom where Belle and Beast shared their magical dance and fell in love. The second is the West Wing which is home to the enchanted rose! And, finally, Guests can enjoy their meal in the castle gallery which is home to Belle’s treasured collection of books! While not guaranteed, the master of the castle has been known to occasionally make his way through all rooms as Guests enjoy their meal.

    Your daughter might also enjoy Gaston’s Tavern! While advertised as the “manliest of manly places” your daughter is sure to enjoy the theming of this location! 

    I’ve done some looking into the grey stuff. Based on my research, it appears that this delicious dessert is not gluten-free. However, I did find that the allergy-free menu at Be Our Guest Restaurant does a rather extensive list of gluten and allergy-free offerings. At Gaston’s Tavern, where the grey stuff cupcake can be found, I encourage you to ask a Cast Member working at the tavern if there is a gluten-free grey stuff option for your daughter. They will certainly accommodate your gluten-free request if they are able to do so!
