gluten free fried chicken at 50's Prime Time

We'll be leaving for WDW in 3 wks. One of our party is gluten free. I've heard that it takes a long time to get an order of the GF fried chicken at 50's Prime Time & that you should order in advance. Has anyone had experience doing this? If so, how far in advance can we order? Day before? Day of? If so, who should I ask for when I call? Can I call the restaurant directly? What is their number? Or do I make the request through Disney Dining?
Any advice would be appreciated. Also, should we do this at any other restaurants? I've only seen it mentioned in regard to the fried chicken at 50's Prime Time.

The first time we did it, we had it noted on our reservation and ordered it when we sat down. They told us it would be a wait (40-60 minutes I think). The second time, they told us just to mention it when we checked in. We mentioned it when we checked in, and were told they were unable to make a note of it. When the server came to our table, we told her we had some gluten free members in our party. She sent the chef out who told us it was too late and that we should have mentioned it when we checked in so that they could clean the fryer. So, I guess, I would recommend insisting on them telling the chef when you check in. Don't let them tell you no. DDIL (the gluten free person) was able to order it when they were there last fall. I think they told them when they checked in, but I think it still took a while to get it.

We were there at opening for lunch one rainy day when there were very few people and our server (whom I LOVED) really discouraged it due to the time it takes to make it. My husband is not really a fried chicken person so he was fine with something else. The server really did not want him to order it though.

We were told it would be 60 minutes and we insisted that it be made, but my DH let them know it was okay to serve the rest of the table but he was going to wait for his GF Fried chicken.
