*This information comes from the Garden Passports handed out at the festival and was obtained March 7, 2015. 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 at Epcot has officially started, and I have to admit, it’s one of my favorite times of year in the park. I adore all of the amazing plants, flowers, and topiaries on display throughout Epcot. With the addition of the marketplace booths a few years ago, folks look forward to trying their food offerings like the International Food & Wine Festival.
This year’s Flower & Garden Festival marketplace passports, which you can get at all of the Outdoor Kitchens kiosks, list the items that are vegetarian and are gluten free (meaning they have no gluten containing ingredients). I have noted the items that I’ve sampled which are also deemed dairy free by the Disney culinary team.
Here’s a list of all of the items that are considered “gluten free” by Disney:
Urban Farm Eats:
- Kale salad, dried cherries, almonds and goat cheese with White Balsamic Vinaigrette – Vegetarian, Gluten Free
- Ghost pepper-dusted tilapia with crisp winter melon slaw and mint oil featuring The Original Sauce Man’s Kick It Up Rub – Gluten Free, Dairy Free (Confirmed by Sarah on March 7, 2015)
- Beijing-style candied strawberries – Vegetarian, Gluten Free, Dairy Free (*Note: This is not marked gluten free on the marketplace passport; however, the Disney culinary team advised me that these are still gluten free, like they were on previous years – March 7, 2015)

Fleur de Lys:
- Confit de canard, pommes de terre sarladaise (pulled duck confit, with garlic & parsley potatoes) – Gluten Free
- Macaron guimauve a la fraise (large strawberry marshmallow macaron) – Gluten Free
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?
