Multi-Allergy Dining Review incl. BC/YC dining + ASD notes

I'm going to get started on the dining review but you'll have to be patient as it'll take some time to get this all written up. I'll also include some notes that are relevant to DD13's autism, where there was anything relevant.

Here are our allergies/intollerances:

DD11: milk, hazelnuts, brazil nuts, citrus (citric acid is ok),peanuts (minor - cross contamination not a concern), sesame, blueberry, cranberry, lima beans, raw carrots, raw fruit skins besides grapes, soy products other than Tofutti and Follow Your Heart (soy’s not the problem but we haven’t identified what ingredient in Silk and other soy products cause Oral Allergy Syndrome)

DD13: gluten, milk, eggs, citrus (citric acid is ok), yeast, msg, peanuts (minor - cross contamination not a concern)

Me: gluten, milk, peanuts (minor - cross contamination not a concern)

With each meal I'll repost who it was for.

Here's where we ate. I'll try to remember to come back to this first post to update what post number has the review for each restaurant.

I'll start the first review in this main post just because I totally forgot to take pictures since I had checked our carryons with Bell Services and my camera was in the carryon. Sorry about that.

Captain's Grille - lunch

We didn't have an ADR for lunch but we had just checked in at YC, Beaches & Cream had a long wait and we didn't feel like heading to Epcot yet and there aren't any decent allergy options at BC/YC so we hoped we could get a walkup ADR. Success! I can spoken with a chef at BC but this wasn't an ADR. Anyway, the chef did fine. I had printed of little laminated cards listing our individual allergens which the chef seemed to appreciate. The girls just wanted chicken tenders with fries so the chef heated up a fresh pot of oil to prepare them. They were happy with this. I wanted something different since I knew I'd be eating those several times during our trip so I asked about the roast beef sandwich which the chef said he could do on an Ener-G bun. He actually did it on 2 buns since they're small and the sandwich is big. It was ok but somehow the bread didn't seem to work all that great with that thick onion and the sauce. It was nice getting a sandwich and it was well made but I suspect the problem was that as a single thick sandwich the proportion of beef to onion to sandwich would have worked but this bun is thicker and dryer than regular bread (even with grilling with olive oil) and not as much beef could fit on the bun as could fit on a regular sandwich and he put a large onion on each sandwich while I suspect normally there's only one for the whole thing. I would recommend Captain's Grille for lunch if you're staying at BC or YC but I wouldn't recommend travelling just to eat here. Since there aren't CS options, this works well.

From an autism perspective, it was nice and quiet without much going on. The place was pretty empty. It was perfect.
