Food Allergy And Celiac Convention Walt Disney World

Character Breakfast at Disney Aulani in Hawaii

Character Breakfast at Disney Aulani in Hawaii

You guys want to hear a secret?

I’m actually going to FACC WDW this November! You might have seen that I’ve been on the street team – but I just decided to book a ticket to Orlando because this event is going to be EPIC. I hope you all can come, I’d love to high-five you all! I can’t wait to see the blogger street team and KING GLUTEN FREE – ALL THE WAY FROM CANADA!

I had such a great experience at Disney Aulani Resort in February that I wanted to experience another side of Disney! I’ve never been to Walt Disney World or the surrounding Disney property, so I’m anxious to see how they handle food allergies and intolerances compared to the excellent service I received in Hawaii.

I think you should all take the leap like I did and join me at the Food Allergy & Celiac Convention (FACC WDW). I’m including the details below for all of the excellent adventures we’ll have while in Orlando in November. Comment if you’re coming!

    HAVE SO MUCH FUN! I love Disney AND really wish I could make the leap, but I’m going to driving across the country. Plus, I’ll be there earlier in November for the Wine and Dine half.

    I think Disney’s pretty great (that’s why I blog about them most Mondays), BUT you still need to advocate for yourself, especially when the chef comes out to your table. It’ll be different when you’re at the conference, but when you’re wandering around the park and such it’ll still be important. I like to ask what brand of products they’re using too because there’s one GF/DF ice cream that I wouldn’t eat due to a cross-contact concern that I know they serve.

    All the sit-down restaurants are great, except for a few in EPCOT that are run by the countries rather than Disney parks. And, for quick service, my favorite is the quinoa dish at Be Our Guest. Otherwise, a bunch of places have dedicated fryers. BUT, be sure to ask exactly what goes in the dedicated fryer, and try to go at a less busy time to a quick service spot. You should always talk to a manager there too. 🙂

    I could write forever, but those were just a few quick notes! Have a blast!
