Our Favorite Restaurants for Eating Gluten-Free at Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World has really stepped up its game when it comes to providing alternative meals for guests with dietary restrictions. A lot of people think theme park and imagine that they’ll only be able to get hamburgers and French fries, but at Disney World, that’s not the case.

Table Service chefs will even consult with guests to address their dietary needs.

Disney World is a big place, though, and it can be intimidating trying to find the right places to eat for guests who need to eat gluten free. We’ve gathered information and tips here, but when it comes to dining recommendations, we’ve got a bunch of those, too!

Here’s our list of some of our favorite Disney World restaurants where you can eat gluten free!

Note: To be certain your meal will be safe for you, speak to your server and the chef at Table Service restaurants or the Cast Member and manager at Quick Service restaurants. They’ll be able to get you ingredients lists and let you know of any possible cross-contamination. Click here to learn more about dining with dietary needs at Walt Disney World.
