Here is a listing of the current gluten free menu items based on information from the official Disney World website along with info from the Disney Food Blog and AllEars.net.

Make sure to click on the individual pages for each booth to see food photos and find out more information.

I’ve indicated known special dietary needs (at this time). This list will change as more information is gathered.

*Note: Menus are subject to change, as is any information regarding ingredients, cross-contamination, and other special dietary needs ingredients. Always consult with the Disney culinary team for more information before consuming. Use caution when consuming any food from marketplace booths, as there is an increased risk of cross-contamination. Marketplace booths do not adhere to Disney’s traditional special dietary needs accommodations, particularly for allergies and/or celiac disease.

  1. I too was very disappointed with the list when I saw it this morning. I’m feeling really bummed out right now since I purposely booked our trip this year over the F &WF. I noticed some items that I enjoyed in previous years are now not listed as GF & I wonder why.
    I’ve always looked forward to our Disney trips ( & have gone every year for the last 5 hrs or so) b/c they are one of the few places that cater to food allergies & as such, I get to eat a lot of foods that I haven’t been able to enjoy in years.
    This years F&WF offerings make me feel like a nucience & an afterthought:(

    1. I was also surprised that some festival options that have been gluten free in the past are no longer listed as gluten free. I’m hoping that as we get closer to the festival, we might find out more information and maybe some of these items will be listed as gluten free once they finalize ingredients. I’m also surprised they don’t have vegetarian items listed yet. They usually have them noted before gluten free. I’ll be posting updates as soon as I get them — though I know some may not be available until closer to the festival time!

  2. Thanks Sarah – one can hope!
    I’m really hoping that the Seared Sea Scallops & Pulled Duck Confit dishes at Wine & Dine Studio are updated to be GF, since if traditionally prepared, wouldn’t have any gluten. Hopefully someone can let us know. Fingers crossed!!

  3. Same here! There are always so many dishes that should be easily GF, and I’m hoping we’ll see some updates as the festival gets closer.

  4. The peanut butter and white choc mousse from earth eats is listed on the Disney website as gluten free

  5. Does anyone know from prior years if there are any dishes that can be easily modified to be gluten-free (such as ordering without the bun, etc.)? This will be my first time at the festival adhering to a gluten-free diet and I am very disappointed in the offerings. I reached out to Disney directly with a couple of specific questions and they sent me back a generic response.

    Thanks!

    1. We won’t know more about modifying dishes until the event. Then, we’ll be able to ask questions and check out ingredients. I hope to have a lot more info when the festival first starts!
