My brother and his family are vegetarians, and my nephew has recently been diagnosed with a wheat allergy, so they are very food conscientious. They don't stay in a resort. Instead, they pack a cooler with foods in it, and even bring a mini fridge and microwave if the hotel room doesn't have them. Of course, it's easier if you are driving there like they do!
I think they just go back to the hotel to eat, which saves money over having to ensure that the restaurants are cautious about cross-contamination, since even small amounts of wheat cause problems for my nephew.

I will leaving on the 19th for a 10 day vacation in Orlando.
We are staying at a townhouse at a resort 10 mins from Disney, so i will have access to a full kitchen (yay - plus there is a whole foods 30 mins away!)
It's been a while since the last time I've been to Disney (high school) - now 25. Back then I could eat anything. Now I have Celiac's disease (no gluten), Casein intolerant (no dairy), a severe soy allergy [Epi pen carrier!] and minor allergies to coconut and buckwheat.
I've filled out the requested allergy form, and we have made reservations and sent the form to them.
I've read online that Disney is a great place for those with food allergies. If anyone has been there lately, could you share your experiences (dining wise!)
Every passing minute is a another chance to turn it all around.
