Gluten Free 4yr old - which restaurants were most accomodating?

Originially posted this in Dis Restaurants, but then found this board!

Hi there!

My DD will be 4 for our trip in October and has Celiac disease so on a gluten free diet. I know many of the Disney restaurants are very accommodating to food allergies/special diets (will be such a relief to travel and not worry!). She is a great eater and not terribly picky, but her faves are the typical children staples...pancakes, waffles, chx nuggets and mac and cheese, which are hard to find GF most restaurants. If anyone has recommondations for Disney restaurants where you've had good experience eating GF with a child, I'd love to know!

Thanks so much.

Most restaurants have the gf waffles, we stated at Port Orleans Riverside last year and had gf Mickey waffles. So did Boma. Pinocchio Village Haus at Magic Kingdom has Mac n Cheese and pizza. Nearly all the cs restaurants I've been too has a dedicated French fry fryer so I was able to eat too many fries. I've heard there are chicken nuggets or tenders at the cs restaurant in the American Pavillion on Epcot, but have not tried them yet.

The suggestions from my picky eaters:

GF pizza at Pizzafari in AK
GF Mac & Cheese at CHH in MK
GF Chicken tenders at ABC Commissary in DHS

We also had great GF kids meals at The Wave and Contempo Cafe in the Contemporary, Coral Reef in Epcot, Liberty Tree Tavern in MK, Sci-Fi Diner in DHS

And you have to go to Downtown Disney and take her to Babycakes NYC! It is a GF bakery and my kids couldn't get enough of their donuts and cupcakes!!!!

Columbia Harbor House quick-serve at Magic Kingdom also has the gf chicken tenders and fries

The Italian places have gf pasta-Tony's in MK and Mama Melrose in DHS... I *think* they might have gf meatballs, but investigate further before getting hopes up! (That's a typical kid food, so I thought I'd mention it )
