    There are a number of restaurants that had gluten free options, however the choice is limited. I had the gluten free pizza at the Serengeti Overlook (the only gluten free option other than fruit). The pizza is cooked and served in a paper bag so no risk of contamination. I also ate at the Zambia Smokehouse where they can cook most of the meats separatley without the sauces in a dedicated kitchen space - i had this with a side salad and grapes/strawberries for dessert.

    Least accommodating of all theme parks (Disney, Universal parks are much better). Few restaurants have GF choices, hard to find knowledgeable server. No GF baked goods at all (not even wrapped cookies for kids) in most places. They have GF info sheets at the guest services desk though.

    Had a great giant turkey leg! They even brought out the label for us to read since we said we were celiac!

    Made me my own personal gluten-free pizza. Even gave me my own pizza cutter that was wrapped up and labeled "gluten-free."

    Upon arrival at Zambia Smokehouse, I asked for the supervisor. She was very nice & brought out a binder to show me what my choices were. There were only a few, but I was thankful none the less. I opted for the 1/4 chicken (without bbq sauce) & a side salad with oil & vinegar. It came out on a plate wrapped in plastic wrap. They seemed to take it seriously and used care preparing my meal. I was very appreciative. The chicken was flavorful, moist & delicious.

    Zambia smokehouse has knowledgable staff- chicken without bbq sauce, side of fruit, corn on the cob without butter. They make everything in the back for you and despite the mass crowd the woman who was helping me gave me her full attention, was so helpful and knew allergen /Celiac safe. Pricey but after eight hours sans food tuning around the park it was the best thing ever to eat more than lettuce and chips.

    Food was ok. Chicken and grapes was all I was told I could eat. Employees made me feel like it was bothersome.

    Arriving at 11am (opening), Mgr prepared order, changed Gloves, granted the Meat Platter, was naked, NO BBQ Sauce. But Fabulous! ...And if you have to have BBQ Sauce, get a handful of Ketchup and packs of sugar at check out, mix and make your own, right on your plate.

    All of their meats are gluten free at Zambia Smokehouse. Let an employee know and they will go in the back and tell you what you can have! Chicken, Pork, Ribs, Smoked Turkey are all safe! No roll, and switch out any side for the fries. Very knowledgable!
