SO many options this year on the Foodie Guide announced by Disney World for the Holiday Season.
And if you ask me, this is very exciting as I love seeing more people included in the Holidays, and that we are getting more recognition for dietary restrictions.
Let’s take a look at some of the options listed for your planning needs, and then I’ll be there to check on and share ingredients so you’ll know if the stop is worth your time.
Friendly Reminder, you can access the Resorts from the parks, and you do not need to be staying on property to access the Resorts! Come on over on a non-park day or stop in during a park day for great eats and treats.
And if your here in November and want another treat, see this new fan favorite cupcake!
⭐ If this is your First Time to Disney World, you’ll want all the insider tips and done for you plans found in the Food Allergies at Disney World Made Easy Guide , If you’ve been here before and just need the best places to eat and snacks, see the Touring Plan and Snack Guide. Just Gluten Free? There’s a guide for that too!
***As Always, please speak to a qualified restaurant employee when ordering food. In order to see the most accurate ingredients and risk assessment, you will need to confirm allergy safety in real-time.

The Grand Floridian Resort
Opening this week, The Grand Floridian has some great options here. Last year we found some great treats, including Erin Mckenna’s Allergy Friendly and Dedicated Bakery Gingerbreads! See the full review of last years Grand Floridian Holiday eats!
UPDATE: Cookies are here and you can see the details and ingredients in this post. Spoiler alert, these were NOT the cookies we were expecting.
This year it’s just listed as ‘gluten friendly and plant based treats’. If I had to make an educated guess, I’d say that we will see similar options to last year. Including a gluten friendly cookie sandwich (here’s the one we had for July 4th!), gingerbreads, maybe Crisped Rice options, and Chocolates.
Beach Club Resort
Beach Clubs options are already out (rare that I beat a Foodie Guide, but here we are!)
This one is a wild card, as the only Gluten Friendly AND plant based option is Erin Mckennas. Now, in 2019 we saw Erin Mckenna’s at The Grand Floridian and Wilderness Lodge, so it’s entirely possible that there’s two locations this year (which would be great as you’d be able to quickly access Erin Mckenna’s from three parks!).
See the options at Boardwalk Resort here.
The Contemporary Resort
This is another wild card as I’m not sure what to expect, what the procedures are, and what they other allergens will be listed.
But how amazing that we get a new gluten friendly cookie, and a themed one at that! Plus lots of other items. There’s always some hidden allergy friendly options and you can find them here!
Lastly, Erin McKenna’s Bakery in Disney Springs
All of the options above are from shared facilities at Disney World. While they are made with allergen procedures, it’s helpful to have a dedicated facility option!
Meet Erin McKennas! Erin’s is a dedicated allergy friendly bakery. See the cookie and review here!
