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 threenager.  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!

Disney is listing allergy friendly items on their website (the My Disney Experience app will have them).  However, third part booths such as China, Italy, France, Japan and Mexico will not be listed. Those countries will have an allergy sheet at the stand to check.  All together, Disney has given us 6 GF items some of which is ice cream and floats.  With the addition of items available at third party booth and items that can be modified, we have a whopping 14 items. Come check out this amazing festival! And follow our adventures on Instagram!

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.

**DISCLAIMER** 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.

EPCOT

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.

HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS

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.

ANIMAL KINGDOM

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!

MAGIC KINGDOM

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.
