Welcome to the Gluten Free Disney World FAQ. There are a few important things to know, but also a lot of things to know to help with any pre vacation jitters. Headed anywhere when eating Gluten Free can be a hassle, but it seems to be a lot easier at Disney World.
There are some instances where Disney World needs improvement, and some areas where I completely disagree with what Disney does.
However, for 90% of your trip, there are a lot of options and you shouldn’t have an issue finding food to keep you full and ready to explore and enjoy your trip.
