    We are planning a trip to Disneyland next month, and will be staying at the Grand Californian. My 7 year old daughter has a gluten intolerance. I have read that Disney World has many gluten free options. What are the gluten free options at Disneyland?

    Hi, Tonya! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for your question. I hope your family is looking forward to visiting The Happiest Place on Earth next month!

    Yes, there are several gluten-free food choices at the Disneyland Resort. When Guests need gluten-free dining options (or any other special accommodation due to an allergy or medical condition), it’s always best to ask to speak to the chef directly. That way, the restaurant can accommodate your specific needs and reduce the risk of cross-contamination since your daughter has a gluten intolerance. 

    Many items can be modified, including substituting a gluten-free roll or bun on the sandwiches at Jolly Holiday Bakery, requesting gluten-free waffles in advance at Plaza Inn, and ordering corn tortillas instead of flour at Rancho Del Zocalo. Many snacks at the outdoor vending carts are gluten-free, such as the popcorn (made with a combination of vegetable and coconut oils), Mickey-shaped ice cream bars, cotton candy, Pineapple Dole Whip, and ever-popular turkey leg. However, ingredients can always change, so please confirm in person before your daughter enjoys any of these items. 

    Disney recommends making dining reservations in advance and informing the restaurant of your daughter’s dietary restrictions so accommodations can be made to suit her needs. Please visit for more information about food allergies and special dietary requests, and feel free to ask me any other questions you may have, Tonya!

    Wishing you magic,
