Need ideas for a GF birthday dinner. Unfortunately, we won't be in the parks yet, we arrive around 4pm on my birthday. Which restaurant would be the best for dinner and a birthday dessert?? The DLR hotels or somewhere in DTD???


Thanks for advice in advance!!

I had a very nice gluten free birthday lunch at Storyteller's Cafe at the Grand Californian last month. They use the Venice Bakery flatbread as bread for the table, bread for pizza and sandwiches. It's my favorite GF pizza/flat bread and I actually buy from their web site to use at home. I am sure they have more for dinner but I had a delicious grilled fish sandwich and DH had a spinach salad.

I also special ordered (need 5 days notice) a 6" gluten free birthday cake which was decent and absolutely beautiful. I am sure they have other standard desserts but there was just something special about having someone else make me a GF cake and I would have never been able to decorate one so nicely. I was going to attach a photo but I guess I can't do that on this site- it's only for a photo and I'm not on pinterest or anything yet.

Any of the hotel restaurants will do a wonderful job with a gluten-free meal (well except Trader Sam's, they're more of a bar and not very knowledgeable with allergies). If you want something very special, try Napa Rose - pricey but terrific food. A little more reasonable is Steakhouse 55, which also has very good food. And if there are children involved (or if you're simply kids at heart ), Goofy's Kitchen has a character dinner. If you want a special dessert, call ahead and they will probably be able to arrange something.

There are also wonderful restaurants in DTD, but these are not owned by Disney and so their gluten-free options might be limited (or even non-existent). I've had good luck with the larger chain restaurants (Rainforest, Tortilla Joe's) but have had to walk out of some of the others, when it was obvious they did not understand cross-contamination issues.

Thanks so much for the insight. I have had breakfast at Storytellers and was really happy!

I'm not sure if I will order a cake or not, but that is a good option. Thanks for the info! Can't wait!

We may have a chance to go close to Christmas and I was thinking about trying to get reservations as a fun holiday surprise. There's 3 of us and only 1 with gluten issues.

I'm not sure if they can/will accommodate or if they do, the desserts just aren't that tasty to make it worth while.

I'm going to call and talk with the dining people but wanted to ask here as well.
Both my daughter and husband have Celiacs. The dessert package was awesome, in fact they got more stuff than I did lol! They each got a huge fruit plate (like a full dinner plate full of fruit) plus I think two or three pudding parfait a things, gf cookies, gf brownie, the cheese, etc. they did stick in the rice crispy treats but they were packaged. The server told me he added them himself because he knew some people can have, some can't. I happily stuck them in my purse for myself, as DD and DH couldn't eat them.

I didn't know they had GF dessert trays - I should have asked.
