Epcot Flower & Garden Festival

*This information comes from the Garden Passports handed out at the festival and was made available online at WDW’s website prior to the festival opening (and may be subject to change). As always, guests should consult each booth for ingredients or for other special dietary needs. Because of the booth space, cross contamination is of higher risk for guests consuming gluten free ingredients.

This year’s Flower & Garden Festival is set to take place March 2 – May 3rd this year, and there are bound to be some good eats throughout the festival. Disney released their Marketplace Passports early and online (for the first time!) this year.

As the festival gets underway, this list will be updated and modified for any dishes that are gluten free & dairy free and/or can be modified easily to accommodate. Some dishes, like the Beijing-style Candied Strawberries have not been marked gluten free (and they weren’t last year either) but the booth confirmed that they were, in fact, gluten free and dairy free at 2015’s festival. Stay tuned to see if they still are this year.

Be aware that Marketplace kiosks are smaller and increased risk of cross-contamination is possible. Please use judgement before consuming any items marked gluten free at the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival.

Here’s a list of all of the items that are considered “gluten free” by Disney:

  • Watermelon salad with pickled onion, B&W Gourmet Farms baby arugula, feta and balsamic reduction – Vegetarian, Gluten Free (can be made dairy free by removing feta cheese) – $3.75

Remember to pick up your passports when you go to the booths and always check with the cast members on ingredients and cross contamination procedures, as well as other additional special dietary needs. These offerings are not marked on the menus outside of each booth, so the passport your best bet for a comprehensive listing.

Stay tuned to reviews from both myself and Alexis over at Gluten Free in Orlando for the latest updates from the festival!

What do you think about the listing of gluten free & vegetarian items on the passport? Will you go and try any of the items at the booths this year?
