Things to Know Before You Eat.
But today, let’s talk about Gluten Free Disney Dining OUTSIDE of the parks. Disney Springs, formally known as Downtown Disney, is a theme park for shopping, dining and entertainments.
Not all of the restaurants here are associated with Disney, but you can still make recommendations in advance through the Disney Dining reservation site.
When you do it this way, you are able to indicate that someone is your party has allergies or dietary restrictions and a cast member, manager or chef will come to speak to you if you have questions about allergens.
I always recommend this when you have food allergies. Unless it is a quick-service spot that you have eaten at before with no problems. And even then, make sure you talk to the manager or chef to make sure there are no changes or chances from cross contamination.
