Anyone who eats gluten free can really appreciate a positive experience. Disney is more advanced than most establishments in providing options and service to people with food allergies, but still, sometimes the experience is
Yesterday I had two very different experiences at Disneyland’s California Adventures. The first was at Boardwalk’s Pizza and Pasta. We asked to order gluten free pizzas. After being told we needed to order with the chef, we
waited for 15 minutes. After that time was asked again thinking we may have been forgotten about. After another 5 minutes, the chef appears and was quite, well there is no other way to say it, cranky. We were made to feel like we were greatly inconveniencing her. The pizza came out in another 20 minutes (everyone else in our party had long finished their meal) and was good, but we still felt jaded by the experience.
What a completely different experience for dinner! We chose Wine Country Trattoria to dine. We were a party of 8, one with a severe peanut allegy and four with gluten sensitivity. We were greeted almost immediately with a smile. We asked for gluten free rolls. In three minutes flat, warm gluten free rolls appears. What? That is unheard of. They weren’t bad either, especially dipped in the oil and vinegar on the table. My children ordered the gluten free spaghetti with marina sauce. I ordered the Alle Vongole, a dish made with clams, parsley, garlic, olive oil, and white wine. The food came out for all eight of us in a very timely manner with. My children gobbled down their dishes (after already eating 3 rolls) My dish was spectacular. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the flavors in the dish were a happy party in my mouth. Very well done. I think I know where we are going for dinner tonight.
