Gluten Friendly Offerings at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

Save this post for later

Cue the Merry… it’s time for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Gluten Free finds! Some of these options are straightforward and contain no gluten without modifications, others will require modifications. Below you’ll find both options clearly listed so you can make the best decision for your food and anxiety needs.

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a Hard Ticket Event, separate from your regular park tickets. It runs select nights at Magic Kingdom from November 9 through December 22. The party officially begins at 7, with entry to Magic Kingdom starting at 4 pm and it wraps up at Midnight. In the party you’ll find exclusive Character Meets, Shows, Food, Merchandise, Photoshoots and more.

This Guide covers the 2023 MVMCP for Gluten Free Guests. See the Allergy Friendly Guide here.

***As Always, this is my personal experience. You should check with Restaurant Staff to see if these items are available for You and Your food needs.

Gluten Friendly Party Exclusive Treats

-Letter to Santa at Main Street Bakery (Starbucks on Main Street USA) (NEEDS MODIFICATION)

-Winter Milk Shake at the Friars Nook in Fantasyland (NEEDS MODIFICATION)

-Cranberry Citrus Float at Sunshine Tree Terrace (Gluten Friendly as is)

Here’s more details on the Offerings listed above (plus scroll to see the items I checked on that cannot be modified)

-Letter to Santa at Main Street Bakery (Starbucks on Main Street USA) (NEEDS MODIFICATION)

This item is listed as containing Gluten on the top of the Allergen Sheet, but after reviewing all of the ingredients AND the labels, no gluten was found. I did purchase this and I took a few bites of the top mousse (as I would think the flour might be the tiny cake base it came on) It was rich and chocolatey! It’s also possible the Gluten Label was a mistake, or that they left out an important detail. Proceed at your comfort level!

-Winter Milk Shake at the Friars Nook in Fantasyland (NEEDS MODIFICATION)

The Winter Milk Shake contains Gluten in the Crispy Pearls up top. Talk to the Cast Member, see the Allergy Sheet, and request without Pearls for a safe (and very coconuty!) treat.

-Cranberry Citrus Float at Sunshine Tree Terrace

Made without Gluten, this was a fun and festive treat, albeit quite messy as the ice cream melted and the sprite pushed out the sides.


The following Treats contain Gluten and Cannot be Modified: Lump of Coal in your Stocking Milk Shake at Auntie Gravity’s in Fantasyland, Christmas Cookie Cake at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe, Santa’s Belt Buckle at Sunshine Tree Terrace

***Unknown Details for the Chicken Tamale at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe

There are 5 locations for the Holiday Cookie Stroll, and they all have an Allergy Friendly Cookie option. I’ve include all of the cookies (both the Allergy option and the Common Option with details) in this guide post.

Gluten Free guests should know that the default Hot Chocolate is Nestle, which has a may contain Wheat/Gluten Warning and is generally avoided by the Community. Columbia Harbour House does have Joffreoys Hot Chocolate, which does not have the warning.

The locations are:

  • Tomorrowland Lunching Pad
  • Tomorrowland Cosmic Rays (entrance in front of Tomorrowland Speedway)
  • Fantasyland Pinocchio Haus (behind the Castle)
  • Frontierland Columbia Harbour House (in front of Haunted Mansion Ride)
  • Adventureland Tortuga Tavern (in front of Pirates of the Caribbean Ride)

Open Gluten Free Dining Locations

There are quite a few locations open for Dining at the Party, but not all of the can accommodate Gluten Free options. The following are places I would recommend for eating a meal once the park opens at 7.

Open Dining Locations for MVMCP that have Gluten Free options:

  • Casey’s Corner (GF Hotdog and Fruit)
  • Peco Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe
  • Cinderella’s Royal Table (Reservations Strongly Recommended)
  • Be Our Guest Restaurant (Reservations Strongly Recommended)
  • Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe

Two Strategies for getting the most out of your Ticket while eating Safely

1.Since you can get into the park at 4 with your Party Ticket, I would recommend getting reservations or enjoying other quick serves, before they close at 6. See more in the Gluten Free Magic Kingdom Guide.

2.Stick to Quick Serve options (Casey’s, Peco, and Cosmic Ray’s) and Skip Character Dining at Be Our Guest and Cinderella’s Royal Table. This will help you spend those extra 1-2 hours in the park doing the Party exclusives, instead of at a Character Meal. I’d recommend the Character Meals for your regular park ticket days.
