The hostess told us to be sure to have the chef come out to help my daughter with the GF dinner menu, but our server wasn't too enthusiastic about that. He'd already given her a GF menu, he reasoned, so why would she need to talk with the chef? There was only a single GF entree on the whole menu, which doesn't seem right for the price they're charging. So we insisted on having the chef come out, and we were so thankful we did. Chef Edson was amazing, and custom-designed a meal on the spot for my daughter after chatting with her about what she liked and didn't like. She wound up with a huge fruit plate (apples, strawberries, grapes, and oranges) for her appetizer, and a perfectly cooked steak with grilled asparagus and fingerling potatoes as an entree. For dessert, she'd really wanted the decorate-your-own-cupcake dessert off the child's menu, so he brought her one with mini chocolate and blueberry muffins instead, so she was in heaven! Thanks to him we had a delightful meal. So if you decide to go, don't settle for the limited GF menu; be persistent in asking for the chef and they'll help you out.
took 2 hours (get to meet the princesses twice!), then was worried about the chocolate mousse so asked for the chef, and he explained that it is a production kitchen with shared equipment... shared blenders and all... so I went with the sorbet, but he tried to convince me to take a. bite despite my concerns "it's your vacation, might as well" he said... scares me that I ate at the dinner... we'll see how I feel later today... though with the long time, hopefully they took it seriously!
Very good! We went for breakfast. Lots of food. My gluten sensitive daughter had a muffin and a chocolate muffin as a starter, she also had a GF Mickey waffle with her meal. I could not have the waffle because of my potato allergy, I had eggs, sausage, and bacon. There was lots of fruit for our table. Chocolate, hot tea, orange juice...it was a lovely breakfast.
We had dinner here on 2/8/16. The allergy menu here is very limited for gluten free especially for the price you pay. We asked to see the chef. Chef David appeared in just a couple of minutes. He told us he would start by bringing us a basket of gf rolls and butter. The only GF options on the allergy menu are the pork tenderloin and fish of the day. My husband asked if he could adapt the steak to be gf and he said yes by leaving off the glaze. My husband and I both decided to order it with the castle salad as our appetizer. My daughter wanted the salmon and Chef David gave her several options for the vegetable. She picked cheesy mashed potatoes and carrots and the scallop for her appetizer. For dessert, we had the flourless cake and I decided on the cheesecake which he said could be adapted to be gf. Everything was good. The steaks were very small. In comparison, the rolls at Mama Melrose in Hollywood Studios are still the softest and warmest of all the restaurants we have eaten at. My husband and daughter both said the chocolate cake here is a little dry and that Coral Reef's was much better because it was so moist. Most of the price of this meal is for the experience of eating at the castle and seeing the princesses. At dinner, Cinderella, Ariel, Snow White, Aurora and Jasmine were in attendance. For the price, I would definitely speak to a chef if you don't see something on the allergy menu that you would like. Chef David was great and happy to accommodate us. I have uploaded pictures of our food from this meal and the allergy menu for dinner.
For breakfast I wouldn't go there again. I ordered waffles. I thought I would be Mickey waffles due to the high price tag. All I got was 3 frozen waffles with bacon. No pastries or anything. Fruit was my substitution for pastries and it was not good. I wouldn't recommend to anyone with a gluten allergy.
