Disneyland- my recommendations for Gluten Free enjoyment!

I always have such a wonderful time at Disneyland with my family and to is made even more wonderful to me that I can eat with them too! I had such a great time this last trip that I wanted to share some of my favorite places to eat!


Located in Tomorrowland it is a must stop for our family. As many of you might be aware good gluten free pizza is hard to come by in regular every day life- but not here. In fact most of my family prefers this pizza to the other pizza offered at this stop.

Story Teller’s Cafe

Located inside The Grand Californian Hotel this has been a great option for eating outside the park. We are here twice and this was something I had never had before so I thought I’d try it and share out my thoughts. It was delicious! This year most of the places we went had an allergy menu that listed the options very clearly what I could have. It was nice to have a menu to look at at the same time the rest of my family was as well.

Flo’s V8 Cafe

Located in Carsland in Disney’s California Advenutre I love the themeing of this restaurant. This time I remembered to take a picture of the menu. The top left hand corner is the area for us gluten free people. This was another fun stop for everyone.

Aladdin’s Oasis-Electrical Light Parade Dining Package

This was a new experience for our family and I’m so glad I can share it with you! This was a “to-go” dining option. Which meant you make a reservation ahead of time about when you are going to pick it up and then you can eat there or take it to go. In addition we got special fast passes for a reserved seating section to watch Disneyland’s Main Street Electrical Parade. I was actually very trepidatious about how this would work out with gluten free- it was wonderful! Very delicious and fresh! The reserved seating worked out great too!

Goofy’s Kitchen

Located in the Disneyland Hotel– this has been a highlight of our trip for the last few years. However with 2 kids that are no longer free to eat at the buffet (under 3 is free) this may not continue to be a traditional stop as it is rather expensive. But for someone who rarely gets to eat breakfast out it sure is a treat! The gluten free waffles and pancakes are amazing-you almost forget they are gluten free! The omelette prepared at their omelette station was perfect and was easily made gluten free.

Smokejumper’s Grill

Located next to Soarin’ in Disney’s California Adventure theme park we usually stop here at least once a trip. For everyone else here there is a burger fixings bar where you grab and add any condiments or garnishments you may want. For me I asked and they graciously grabbed some from the back that hadn’t been out for the “gluten eaters”.  Also the fries are gluten free- yumm!

Lucky Fortune Company

This is also located in Disney’s California Adventure theme park. In a small food court type area by the wharf we found this hidden gem last time. If you are looking for a different type of park food head here and enjoy the choices. My father-in-law sampled the food from the Mexican restaurant down there and loved it as well, so you should be able to find something delicious!  I got the teriyaki rice bowl. They warned me that the vegetables were pan seared with other non gluten free items so I decided not to risk it, but the sauce, chicken and rice was wonderful.

The Jolly Holiday Bakery

Last but certainly not least… located on Main Street Disneyland this is one of my favorite meals! I actually dream about this sandwich! The inside is themed after Mary Poppins, it’s so cute! The chips are homemade every day in a dedicated fryer so completely safe and wonderful! This is a turkey sandwich. They were still working on their allergy friendly menu but told me most of the sandwiches can be made gluten free.

So that’s a snapshot of my favorite Disneyland and California Adventure gluten free meals. In another post I’ll list my top snacks!
