GLUTEN FREE GINA
Hello!! Thank you for stopping by. As The Rolling Stones said, "Please allow me to introduce myself." I'm Gina, or Gluten Free Gina as the title of this section states. I spent much of my childhood in the Orlando area and after moving around many, many, (MANY) times as an adult my family and I decided to return to the Sunshine State in 2020. Each year while we were away from Florida we would return for a Disney Vacation. And every time, I would spend months researching and making lists of what I could eat that's gluten free and what one of our vacationing friends could eat as a vegan. Naturally, when we formally relocated back to the area I decided to start an Instagram page helping people find the GF and GF/vegan options in all of Disney World. My immediate family is made up of the following: GF/DF, Vegan, Plant-Based, and one super picky toddler. My contribution to the gluten free community is to help others find the info they need in one location to help keep the "food planning" at a minimum and the "fun planning" at a maximum!
IF YOU WANT TO JOIN THE CAUSE
You could buy me a sangria
Believe me when I say you are under no obligation and all of these guides are completely free. However, some people have reached out and offered to donate and as such here is a link if you are wanting to do that. Thank you all! Happy eating! Cheers.
WALT DISNEY WORLD
There are SO MANY GF options around the parks, resorts, and Disney Springs. Why go anywhere else to eat?!
This site serves as a way to plan your food experiences without spending so many hours of your precious time on multiple sites/social media outlets. To see rotating options as well as more in-depth reviews of restaurants, festivals, and new things to do follow me on Instagram as Glutenfreedisneyworld.
**I do not work for Disney nor do I profit from these guides. To use them most effectively, think of them as a way to narrow down all the food options around Disney World to those that are Gluten Free (Friendly). These are guides to help you maximize your time and know ahead of arrival what you are likely to be able to eat. In a fast paced and evolving world, things can change quickly. Please always check with the chef, manager, or knowledgeable cast member to ensure what you are eating continues to be safe.
Hands down this is my favorite park to visit. It has always been that way, even when I was a child. Now that I have children of my own it makes me smile from ear to ear seeing that they hold the same loving spot in their hearts for Epcot as I have. Need suggestions on what to do here or ways to entertain little kiddos? Send me an email and I will get you some info.
This park has been hard for me to love since The Great Movie Ride was taken away (insert crying emoji here). However, there is a ton to offer in the way of GF eating that I can't deny. With the exception of Epcot Food Festivals, this may top the list with unique offerings. However, you have to know how and where to find them.
This park has been exploding with GF items for quite some time. While the GF drink options tend to be not as good (read: lacking GF beer and cider) the food is a plenty!
The cornerstone of Disney World has a lot to offer in the way of GF table service restaurants. They are known for the unique atmosphere and themed dining that takes your park experience to the next level. Magic Kingdom GF food truly is magical.
EPCOT WORLD SHOWCASE
Have you been feeling left out of the historical "drinking and eating around the world" at Epcot? Well feel left out no longer!!! Here you will find colorful guides for every single country including The Land! What's more? This guide notes GF as well as any GF/vegan items found in the area. So have yourself the time of your life! And don't forget to hydrate.
Did you know there are other options when staying on or around Disney? Here are some of the most popular.
Swan and Dolphin
Old Key West*
Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista
Holiday Inn Orlando
Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista
Double Tree Suites by Hilton
B Resort & Spa Lake Buena Vista

Land of 1,000 restuaurants
There are so many restaurants to choose from, how do you decide? One of our favorite things to do is to explore DIsney Springs with the kiddos (or on a date night). We are always stumbling upon new and exciting things. Above anything else, DIsney Springs has always made us feel happy.
I hope it does for you as well.
DISNEY SPRINGS DINING GUIDE
Need a really good sangria or maybe a crab cake? This is a current list of all restaurants with indication of what GF and GF/Vegan food they have to offer. As with anything else, please always verify with your server, a manger, or a chef as ingredients and staff can change.
UNIVERSAL ORLANDO RESORT
Orlando isn't only Disney World. Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure have much to offer in the way of fun, thrill rides, and even a few unique gluten free treats. If you are a Harry Potter fan as I am, there are few things more amazing than entering Diagon Alley and transporting yourself into a magical world. Need recommendations on what to do here? Send me an email or reach out on IG and I will guide you.
