We ate a late breakfast there two weeks ago. Three of the four of us are gluten among many other things free. I was disappointed that they couldn't make us pancakes (the only surface they had for pancakes was used for all the non-akllergy stuff) but they could do Mickey waffles. DD12 got a ham omelette with an Udi's bagel instead of the biscuit (she can't eat the GNI buns that the chef normally would serve instead of the biscuit). She couldn't have cheese in the omelette because she's dairy free and they don't carry soy cheese unless you notify them ahead of time that you'll want it (I didn't know that then but now I do). DD15 didn't want waffles because she had eaten a lot of them all week so the chef offered to make her something from the lunch menu since we had the last breakfast seating and the lunch stuff was already being brought out. I had heard that they can make a GF tonga toast so that's what I asked for. It seems that was a specialty of Chef Johnny who has since moved over to 'Ohana for breakfasts but the chef said he'd see what he could do. I ended up with what they called tonga sliders which was 4 of the GNI rolls made into french toast (they take a while to soak up the egg mixture so it takes a little while) stuffed with mashed bananas, topped with cinnamon and sugar and served with a strawberry compote. He wasn't sure how it would turn out but I enjoyed it. If nothing else, it was something different. I'm not sure if all of the chefs would be willing to make this or not. As I said, it was something Chef Johnny used to do and he's no longer there. If I remember correctly, the macadamia nut butter was something we couldn't have either but I think that was because of the butter. The chef did offer to whip up some Earth Balance margarine with some crushed macadamia nuts for us but it was DD15 who wanted it for pancakes and without the pancakes she didn't need the macadamia nut butter.
