I visit Downtown Disney on a regular basis and update this post often. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Some of the downtown gluten-free restaurants include Catal, Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria, Rainforest Cafe, and Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen. 

This guide offers the TASTIEST gluten free food in downtown Disney including gluten free dinner and gluten free sweets.

Ballast Point® Brewing Co.

At the time of this post, Ballast Point offers lettuce wraps to replace the buns on the burgers. 

Catal Restaurant

Catal Restaurant has been my number one spot for lunch and dinner while spending a day at Downtown Disney. I started eating at Catal when they opened in 2001, and Catal continues to be my favorite place even with food allergy restrictions.

Guests can enjoy a limited number of outdoor tables. And, in the springtime, an outdoor table high above the UVA Bar is my place of serenity in the middle of the day. 

The paellas are all gluten-free, and a well-balanced meal you won’t soon forget. 

TRADITIONAL…mussels, shrimp, clams, roasted chicken, chorizo de bilbao, saffron bomba rice, peas  

SUCKLING PIG…roasted suckling pig, chorizo de Bilbao, saffron bomba rice, peas, pickled onion, tomatillo jam 

LOBSTER…maine lobster, chorizo de Bilbao, saffron bomba rice, peas, saffron aioli 

Catal is one of the best restaurants in downtown Disney with gluten free options including the delicious lobster paella.

Earl of Sandwich ®

At the time of this posting, Earl of Sandwich ® did not provide gluten-free bread for sandwiches. They offer three tossed salads, which include: earl’s cobb, berry chicken almond, and greek.  

Kayla’s Cake

Kayla’s Cake is located outside of Starbucks and the World of Disney store. They offer a few gluten-free macaroons.

Kaylas Cake offers gluten free food in downtown Disney including chocolate pops.

Rainforest Cafe

Almost all of the dishes at Rainforest Cafe can be made gluten-free or are naturally gluten-free. I recommend speaking with a kitchen manager before placing your order. Also, I recommend advanced recommendations through Disney Dining for weekends, dinners, and during holidays. 

You'll find exceptional service and gluten free food in downtown Disney at Rainforest Café.

Sprinkles 

Sprinkles didn’t forget about gluten-free foodies when they made their menu.

Sprinkles creates a rotating seasonal cupcake, and the blueberry lemon has put a smile on my face. Sometimes, the rotating seasonal cupcake is gluten-free.

And, they offer the famous “red velvet cupcake” gluten-free upon request. You should see a “G” on the gluten-free cupcakes. 

My favorite gluten-free treat is the cookie. You may want a cupcake since it’s “Sprinkles,” but I think the cookie is made extra special for the gluten-free foodie. The cookies are so moist and chewy. You won’t want to share.

One of the best gluten free foods in Downtown Disney is the gluten free cookie at Sprinkles.

Splitsville Luxury Lanes

Splitsville Luxury Lanes is a NEW and exciting addition to Downtown Disney. You can reserve a private bowling lane and try a few gluten-free options. The menu is clearly labeled with allergy symbols, including a GF symbol. With all Disney dining options, the staff is knowledgeable, helpful, and willing to assist with your allergy needs.

The fantasy roll, ahi tuna, and chicken chopped salad are a few popular gluten-free items. My personal favorite is the salmon and broccoli.

Splitsville Lanes is open and offering gluten free food in Downtown Disney including salmon and sushi.

Starbucks ® and Starbucks ® West 

Who’s excited to see a Starbucks at Disneyland? And, not one but two! 

I created a separate post that outlines the Gluten-Free Drinks At Starbucks And Vegan Starbucks Drinks

The downtown disney gluten free guide offers the gluten free drinks at Starbucks menu with tasty options.

Uva Bar

The UVA BAR and cafe in Downtown Disney serves allergy friendly options all day. I have an obsession with the UVA Street Fries. They are infused with garlic, balanced with white cheddar, and reported to be gluten-free.

Downtown Disney Breakfast is served from 8-11 am, and the main menu is served until 11 pm. You can count on them for your next gluten-free bite and drink at the happiest place on earth. 

And, don’t let the Disney vibe fool you. The UVA Bar may have your new favorite gluten-free drink. Have you tried an electric lemonade with Titos Vodka? 

Wetzels Pretzels

At the time of this posting, Wetzel’s Pretzels does not offer gluten-free options.
