special diet restrictions

Advice please. My doctor and surgeon just told me to go and enjoy disney but I cannot eat anything fried or very fatty items, and need to stay away from gluten until my gall bladder surgery after the trip. I already have ADR's at the following:
Yachtsman
Mamma melrose
tusker house
coral reef
dessert party
garden grill
The rest will be quick service meals, so I know I can order a salad at certain places or get other items. We are CL so I know fresh fruit will be available there. Should I all dining and inform them of my restrictions or just wait until I get to the there and try to pick items from the menu and just tell them to please prepare with no added fats. I know the dessert party I will just have to watch and not eat as everything will have lots of fat in it but thats ok, I don't know if they can make "no fat" desserts, and if they could it might not be tasty.

1) Ah, yes, the Ole gall bladder fatty issues.
2) I know FAR TOO WELL your problem, until mine was excised.
3) At your eateries., just tell them low-fat diet.
4) And, have it listed on the ADR ahead of time.
5) I found, with mine
. . . meats were fine
. . . minimum potatoes worked
. . . salads no problem

NOTE: Disney chefs can easily do a low-fat meal. But, always have
it on your ADR ahead of time. It will be pulled up when the podium
person sees your ressie.

Thank you so much. I will call and have it added to my ADR's. I have never experienced a "restricted" diet so this is all new to me. We just don't have time to do the surgery before we leave so the doctors said no problem just do what we say and have fun. I like plain baked potatoes and I am guessing the filet at yachtsman and grilled fish at coral reef. The buffets should be ok with a salad bar. Thanks again for your advice.

OT:
1) My surgery took 1/2-hour.
2) Went home next morning - many go home that night.
3) No pain, and only minor discomfort at incision point.
4) NOTHING to be scared or worried about.

I would suggest going to the disABILITIES Forum and look at Post #3 of the disABILITIES FAQs. There is a large section in that post dealing with special dietary needs, as well as many related links. You can get directly to the disABILITIES FAQs by following the link in my signature.

This is a very common topic of discussion in the disABILITIES Forum.
