Gluten Free Onion Rings Raglan Road
This series of guest reviews comes from blog reader Jaime. Her enthusiasm, excitement and love for Disney just shine through in her trip report, and I think you’ll agree when you read them. Speaking with her before her vacation, I was just so excited to hear her recap when she returned. Jaime provided a thorough trip report, so I have broken it up by days. You’ll want to make sure to read them all (I’ll link to them in each post)! Thank you again, Jaime, for your awesome reviews!

We are headed to Animal Kingdom today, extremely bright and early (Extra Magic Hours were 7am-8am) and for breakfast, I thought we’d just grab something at Pizzafari.

Here’s a blurry shot of their menu:

We didn’t bother telling them about the allergy here, we just ordered food, minus the bread items (again, my allergy is minor, I’m not suggesting anyone else do this!)

Ethan ordered the adult bounty platter (scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, french toast, breakfast potatoes, and biscuit ) without the French toast and biscuit.  The cashier asked if he wanted extra of anything (it really just looks like he got extra potatoes).

I ordered the kid’s platter (eggs, potato wedges, turkey sausage, oatmeal) since no substitutions would have to be made for me.  I never did get the oatmeal and whose bacon do I have???

Oh, wait. I mixed up the pictures!  But I never did get the oatmeal… This was typical Disney breakfast fare – some items were a little cold, but it was edible and filled us up for awhile.
Two hours later, we needed a little something – Mickey Bars are gluten free! (Ethan’s first Mickey Bar!!!)

For lunch, I took Ethan to Flame Tree Bar-B-Q.  This was always one of my favorite places to eat anyway!

We wait in the regular line and tell the cashier there’s a food allergy.  He printed off a ticket and sent us to the counter to talk to a manager with a food allergy book.  Once again, we were asked what we were thinking about.  I ordered the half chicken served with baked beans and coleslaw and Ethan ordered the Smoked Turkey Breast – with cranberry mayonnaise and fresh fruit.  The manager turned to each item in the allergy book and showed us the ingredients.  Ethan had to have the bun substituted on his sandwich, but everything else was safe.

The wait was a little long; I believe 3 or 4 groups passed us in getting served.  I don’t think I’d ever tried the beans before – they were really good!  I tried a bite of the roll the turkey was served on – pretty good for GF.  Interesting note: I was given 2 packets of bar-b-q sauce with my chicken… but wasn’t told not to use the sauce in the condiment machines.  I wasn’t told I could use it, but later on I’ll be told not to at another restaurant.

Tonight’s dinner is really exciting – we’re going to Raglan Road for GLUTEN FREE ONION RINGS!!!

After all the reviews I had read about this place, I was practically vibrating going to our table!  We had a view of the dancing, which was new to me (I’d only eaten lunch here once).  Our server was friendly and helpful, but very busy.  He still took the time to have a discussion with me about the onion rings and how he prefers the GF ones to the regular ones!

The GF beer was Red Bridge (which Ethan does NOT like) and there was Magners pear cider that was also GF.  When I was about to say no, our server offered us a taste.  Sure, why not?  Neither of us was a fan (it still tasted like beer to me and I don’t like beer…)

I ordered Scallop Forest – George Bank scallops in a golden batter served with a citrus lime dipping sauce and sweet chili jam.  And the onion rings.  Ethan ordered Cluck Curry – Chicken breast in curry broth with onions, peppers, leeks, and steamed almond rice.  And was allowed ONE onion ring.  Okay, I let him have two.  Near the end of the meal, he ordered another order of onion rings!

The chili jam was very good, but the lime sauce was to die for!  I was dipping scallops and onion rings in it!  I asked for more with the second order of onion rings.  I was in heaven.  I was also so sick from eating so much fried breading!

I practically rolled out of the restaurant.  This meal was fantastic and there were so many other things on the menu we’d like to try… we’ll be back here for sure!

Stay tuned for Day 3 of Jaime’s trip report!
