Restaurant reviews aren’t my thing. Blogging about where I choose to dine beyond donut shops when away from home isn’t my thing either, even though I eat out and travel a lot. That said, I had an experience last week I wanted to share.
Last week I went to Orlando to run in the Disney Princess Half Marathon. I’m not a huge Disney fanatic, but do enjoy the parks. My husband and I got married at Disney World and we’ve enjoyed many trips there, all before my recent diagnosis that prevents me from eating gluten. This trip provided a challenge for me, one I was surely up to. Prior to this trip, I lived my life believing it was possible for me to eat safely as a gluten-free vegetarian anywhere in the world. I no longer believe that.
To start planning this trip, I read every food blog entry I could find about eating safely at Disney with food intolerances and allergies. I found so many positive reports. I felt confident I could do this!

Our first lunch choice, Backlot Catering Company, was closed. A castmember stationed there told us another restaurant across the park had a comparable menu and we should go there. (Their menu did not look comparable on the gluten-free list) Instead we decided to go to Toy Story Pizza Planet. Yep, pizza again.
