Today was my last day in the Disney parks
Today was my last day in the Disney parks. I had posted earlier about being nervous about what I was going to eat, and I got amazing advice from you guys, and I can’t thank you guys enough! Every place I ate, I got to speak to a chef beforehand, and they were very gracious!
Well, all but one, unfortunately. Today, (luckily this happened on the last day, last in-park meal) We were in animal kingdom at one of the causal dining spots (Yak n Yeti?), and the chef came out to talk to me, but she didn’t seem like she wanted to be there/talk to me properly, but she listed off suggestions, and then just kinda walked off, which I thought was odd, but wrote it off as ‘eh, I guess she’s busy! Can’t blame her. Everyone else has been super amazing so far, so she’s got me taken care of’
She didn’t 🙁
Or, there was cross contamination somewhere in the food, because about an hour afterwards, standing in a line, I just doubled over and cried/screamed (I don’t know why, but this is becoming more common now, each time I get glutened). One of the staff members ran to me, thinking I was having a contraction, it was so embarrassing.
They took it to guest relations, got my meal refunded, extra fast passes, and a LOT of apologies. I just felt bad because I didn’t want to get anyone in trouble.
I’m still recovering, with occasional spams, but I’m not regretting the trip overall, and I wanted to thank you all again, and let anyone know, that if you haven’t been to Disney since the diagnosis, they DEFINITELY take care of you, don’t be afraid of going there, and if you feel uncomfortable with a certain location and their food options, it’s okay, don’t eat there, ask them where you can find gluten free foods, 99% of the time they’ll point you in the right direction or they’ll have a chef come out and talk to you and see how they can modify a dish for you. Just watch their body language too. I guess the chef I got today wasn’t in the mood, lol. But You won’t go hungry, and you won’t go broke! The prices are reasonable!
(top recommendations: rainforest café in animal kingdom, and Pinocchio-Something in magic Kingdom. Their staff is SO NICE, and they gave us a bunch of free fast passes just for being nice customers, and thanking them for making accommodations! Also, their pizza was made from udi’s crust, but it was HEAVENLY)
