We’ll walk you through the simple steps, so you can order and enjoy your gluten-free favorites without any hassle. Dining at Disney has never been this convenient, especially since Mobile Ordering is easier than say, dealing with a Buffet.
***As Always, please speak to a qualified restaurant employee when ordering food. In order to see the most accurate ingredients and risk assessment, you will need to confirm food safety in real-time. This is my personal experience, I am not employed or endorsed by companies or brands mentioned.***
Here’s where you can Mobile Order Gluten Free at Disney
Not every location has a Gluten Free option when Mobile Ordering. The only locations that have the options are locations that have an active and available allergy menu (as some places can accommodate allergies without a menu). (click the link to see all the locations inside the parks, not including the resorts!)
For instance, Casey’s Corner in Magic Kingdom can accommodate with some Gluten Free options, but doesn’t have GF ordering for mobile.
So you can Mobile Order inside the four Main Theme Parks (Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, EPCOT) at many of the quick service locations. You cannot do mobile order inside the Parks at the Table Service Locations. You cannot do mobile ordering for third party locations like this dedicated gluten free bakery.
This is different than the resorts, which have varied functionality with mobile ordering. Depending on the location, You can mobile order at many of the resorts for both Quick serve options and sometimes the Table Service options as well.
Here’s the Walkthrough for How to Mobile Order when you are Gluten Free on the MyDisneyExperience App
Open up the MyDisneyExperience App, and click the bottom plus sign ‘+’ and select ‘order food’. The Following image will show up with all of the available selections BUT not all of them offer Food Allergy Options.
For a full list of menus and recommended options, download your copy of the Unoffical Gluten Free Disney Guide.
Click the option you’d like to order from. If Allergy options are available, you’ll find the Allergy Friendly selection (see image below for the icon circled in red).
That Allergy Friendly Section opens up into each Individual Allergy. Note that some items are located together, like Gluten and Wheat, Fish and Shellfish etc.
Select Gluten Free and see the available options for Mobile Ordering. You should note that there are more items and customizations available when speaking to a Cast Member- if you need something modified- you can order in person.
Once you’ve placed your order, your receipt will show Allergy Friendly next to your food items, and also any other regular items you’ve placed.
I do recommend two mobile orders if you have an Allergy Order and a Non Allergy Order.
Then you’ll wait for your item to be prepared.
The Food you get should have a sticker (or several) indicating it was an allergy order. The stickers are generally on the bag, and then also on the box. Most of the stickers on the bag have it sealed with a warning that it should not have been opened (see below)
Then the Allergy Stickers on the Box should have the allergens labeled.
I also get these allergen stickers even when I don’t mobile order, as it’s a handy way for the Cast Members to keep track of allergy items.
Can you talk to a Chef before, During or After the Mobile Order?
Yes! You can talk to a Chef, Manager, or Special Diets Trained Cast Member before using Mobile Ordering, During your Mobile Order, and After you’ve already ordered.
I’d recommend talking to them before you order, as sometimes allergy meals take longer to prepare (and another reason why I recommend budgeting extra time for things like Character Meals, as they just take longer!) . If you wait till the order is made to confirm allergens, but then the meal is not safe for you, you’ve added a lot of frustration and time to the meal.
