What is Touch of Disney?



Touch of Disney is a separate limited capacity ticketed experience for guests to explore the sights, sounds and flavors of the Disneyland Resort from inside Disney California Adventure Park.

Will there be Gluten Free options?




If you don't already know Disney takes food allergies and dietary restrictions very seriously.  The don't often announce ahead of time a list of options that are guaranteed gluten free.  They tell guests to consult with the chef upon arrival.  My speculations are that if this event is anything like the Food & Wine festival that there might be a few options that can be accommodated gluten free, but at this time I honestly do not have an answer to this question.


There will be other restaurants open during the event where you can make a reservation or mobile order and in the past they have offered a gluten free menu. 

Here is a list of Restaurants that will be open during the Touch of Disney Event:

Lamplight Lounge (reservation)
Carthay Circle Lounge (reservation)
Smoke Jumpers Grill
Award Wieners
Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats
Cocina Cucamonga











Disneyland doesn't always disclose what is gluten free beforehand.  The following suggestions listed in the Gluten Free Foodie Guide above might be gluten free friendly are based on my personal past experiences or that it is listed in the Disneyland app. Please verify for yourself with a chef when you arrive.
