First Cruise--Gluten Free Me-Fantasy Eastern Mar.9-16


Our cast of characters includes

Me-40 something who has been Gluten Free for a year and a half
DH-age withheld at his request
DS-turned 17 4 days before cruise
DD-to turn 15 a month after cruise

We purchased DVC in 2009 with a gift my DM left us when she departed this earth. She loved all things Disney and we thought it fitting that we would take some "remember Grandma" time when we visited without her.

January, 2012, DH, man who has always proclaimed his dislike for sitting around on the beach, out of the blue says "I think next winter we should look at going away somewhere warm, an Island vacation somewhere"

What.......who are you??

I drop everything and immediately start looking at where we should go.
With my GF issues, I knew going to an Island, and eating at an all inclusive buffet, or where there was a language barrier, or where people just don't understand that gluten is in things other than bread, just wasn't an option for me.
We had not been to Disney since my diagnosis, but I knew I had read about them accommodating food allergies. I started researching, and figured a Disney Cruise would meet my/our needs.

By mid-February we had booked a Cat. 4C family Oceanview with verandah

Having DVC, I often planned 11 months out, but this was even longer.........
but finally the day arrived
