If you’re familiar with me at all (and if you’re not, where the heck have you been, pal?), then you know that I’m completely obsessed with all things Disney: the princesses, the songs, the movies, the merch….ALL of it. That mouse is my dude.
Well, in a wonderful twist, it looks like this will be the year that I FINALLY go to Disney World. Nope, I’ve never been! Which shocks everyone that knows about my obsession, but sorry folks, taking off for a super-expensive vacation and spending hundreds on rides and souvenirs isn’t the easiest thing in the world. We’re also planning on visiting Universal Studios while we’re in Orlando. I’m almost as obsessed with Harry Potter as I am with Disney, so there’s NO WAY I can be that close to those Harry Potter rides and not visit Hogwarts, drink some butterbeer, get my geek on, etc.
Needless to say, I’m over the freaking moon, and I can’t stop thinking about it! Things got even more exciting yesterday when my husband directed me to an Internet article about all of the gluten-free dining options in Disney World. I did NOT see that coming – I was expecting to have to leave the park and find a Jimmy John’s or Chick-Fil-A or some other place where those of those of us whom wheat hates can actually dine. But apparently the House of Mouse is great about accomodating people with food allergies or intolerances. If you have any experience in dining gluten-free at Disney, I would LOVE to hear about it. Feel free to comment or shoot me an e-mail. Heck, if you’ve been to Disney World and have any advice at all I’m all ears. Mouse ears, that is. 😉
