I don't think there is such a thing as a gluten free restaurant.
Disney is great with special dietary needs. Take a look at the Disabilities Forum here on the DIS. There is great info there.

Check out the Disabilities forum - lots of info on gluten free there. And BTW, there are no gluten free restaurants - just GF options and most places.

I would certainly follow the advice from above, but just so you get a little instant gratification, I enjoyed eating GF at the food court in AoA, Flame Tree in AK, Columbia Harbor House in MK and Hacienda de San Angel in Epcot. I didn't seek out special GF items (like GF rolls, waffles or pasta), but just eat meat and veggies.

You went to WDW and didn't get GF waffles? Seriously? Did you at least try the GF chicken tenders?

I agree to check out the disABILITIES! board. There are tons of GF dining reviews. I've got a bunch in my signature if you're interested. There are actually a lot more options than what you'll see in my reviews since we're off a heck of a lot more than just gluten.

I typically stick with Disney owned restaurants but I've also read good GF reviews at Teppan Edo and Yak & Yeti. There really is no wrong restaurant at WDW unless they don't carry anything you like on the menu or the style of food of the restaurant. Basically you can make your decision based on the same things those who don't have dietary restrictions use.

I just have to add one thing though. GF fish & chips and onion rings at Cook's of Dublin (CS) /Raglan Road (TS) followed by dessert from Babycakes (all at DTD). 'Nuff said.

BTW, I get what you meant by GF restaurant. I seriously doubt you expected any of the restaurants to be completely GF. Even the Udi's Cafes around the country (none at WDW, just making a point) aren't completely GF.

I know, sounds crazy. We only did one TS breakfast (Chef Mickey), and I'm much more of an bacon, eggs and potatoes kind of girl in the morning. I didn't try the chicken nuggets, but again, when I have the option of grilled salmon with steamed veggies or chicken nuggets, I'm going with the salmon. I did have the babycakes mini cupcakes that were in the dessert case at AoA and I'd love to try the GF fish and chips you mentioned next time we are in the World.

Any TS restaurant can be gluten free - just notate it on your ADR or alert the host/hostess.

The chef will come out to speak with you and prepare something safe for folks with gluten issues. And, I gotta say, boy is it good! The chefs have always been so accomodating and helpful.

These are the best GF places we really enjoyed our last trip.

1900 Park Fare the chef was very creative and went out of his way to make the meal worth the price.
Sanaa is probably our favorite the selection was amazing and the food was excellent.
We also enjoyed Kouzzina's and Ohana as well. I hope that helps I know every place will have something but having a chef that really know his stuff and is willing to make you happy really added to our experience.
