Just recently I wrote an article reviewing some products by GlutenFree Passport. Since I wrote this article, a new product has become available that I would love to share with you – an app for the iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad for gluten-free dining at Disney World. While I have read about dining being fairly easy to navigate at Disney World, it is certainly nice to have a tool like this available to simplify things.
Some details about the new GF Disney app:
Find safe meal options at 130-plus table service restaurants, quick service restaurants, food stands and food courts throughout WD World®. Discover specific gluten free and allergen friendly menu items and pre-packaged snacks available throughout the Parks from over 35 manufacturers.
Now enjoy your vacation / holiday and eat foods at WDW free from dairy, egg, fish, gluten, peanuts, shellfish, soy, tree nuts and wheat.
All of the information listed in this app reflects printed materials as of June 2011 produced by WDW Company which are available upon request via phone or email to WDW. The safe snack and dining suggestions include:

I purchased & downloaded this new app to my iPod Touch today to give it a whirl. I have never been to Disney World, much to the chagrin of my children, but for as much as we travel & dine out, I felt I was still qualified to peruse & use the app. I found the app extremely user friendly and intuitive. The sections of Disney World are separated out and then broken down into individual dining establishments/hotels/parks/etc. Within those breakdowns, gluten-free foods are listed. It really seems like Disney World is a very gluten-free friendly place, just as I have heard.
I can see this tool being priceless for a gluten-free trip to Disney World. Having this information literally at your fingertips as opposed to carrying lists is well worth the purchase price of $2.99. I don’t know about you, but lists end up at the bottom of my large purse crumpled up with receipts that I have every good intention of keeping.
The GF Disney – Gluten and Allergen Free Disney World App is available exclusively at the itunes store along with the other apps created by GlutenFree Passport. I just discovered today that “there is an app for that” for Chicago gluten-free dining! I think that every large major city, large amusement park & such could benefit from apps like these.
