I am so excited to tell you guys about one of our absolute favorite meals at Disney: Boma! Boma Flavors of Africa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is a buffet style and I know all my gluten free friends out there are a little nervous already but here’s the thing, as good as just about all of Disney is about intolerances and allergies, as good as Disney buffets are, Boma is just the best I’ve experienced both in how much I love the food and how safe I feel eating the food! Ready to get hungry? Let’s dive in! Continue reading
Happy (almost) spring everyone! We just got home from the first few days of the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival 2017 and you know, I’ve learned the absolute best cure for the post-Disney sads is writing about all the in-Disney fun. And so, without further ado, let’s talk all about this year’s festival and by this year’s festival, you know I mean this year’s (gluten free) FOOD! Continue reading
Being gluten intolerant, maybe I get a bit more excited about Sprinkles in Disney Springs than most. Sure you can get a great cupcake pretty much anywhere, but when you’re gluten intolerant that’s just not the case. Sprinkles, for gluten free folks like me, is a kind of life changing dessert experience. As much as I love Sprinkles food, though, Sprinkles itself is another story. Ready to hear more and get that sweet tooth reallllllyyyyy hungry? Let’s go then! Continue reading
Today I’m back with a speedy little review of Captain Cook’s gluten free lunch and dinner service. Captain Cook’s at Disney’s Polynesian Resort is fantastic for Magic Kingdom park days to grab an easy, convenient, delicious not-breakfast meal (I strongly urge you to go over to Gasparilla at the Grand Floridian for that, much better waffles but that’s for another day). Continue reading
I can’t even start to tell you how excited I am to write this post! I am a serial-nester, I’m one of those people who just has to unpack the second I get to a room or has to decorate wherever I am. My college dorm rooms were things of legend. Well we’ve moved around a lot the last few years but now that we’re settled in Charleston, South Carolina with the incredible shop we’ve been beyond blessed to have I finally got the opportunity to “nest” again and this was the result! Are you ready to see all the details and pieces and artists that went into making this space? I’ll link as many things as I can but some of these have just been collected over the years.

Tonight we’re getting a bit fancy at the signature restaurant Artist Point at Disney’s Wilderness Lounge. I love signature dining at Disney not only because it’s delicious but also because they are always fantastic about gluten free dining. Artist Point has a reputation for some pretty outstanding gluten free dishes and I was especially excited to try it so let’s dig in! Continue reading
In our last post I talked about some of my favorite tips for making the most of your pre-park-opening breakfast experience in Magic Kingdom. One of those was about splitting breakfast at Be Our Guest so I thought I should follow that up with a review of Breakfast at Be Our Guest so I can tell you guys more of what I love about it (and maybe a few things to watch out for).

Hey all! I’m up early today (did someone say After Party Sale?!) and thinking about my favorite place in the whole world to be up early- Disney’s Magic Kingdom- so I thought I would share some of my favorite tips. Now at the time I’m writing this (you don’t want to know o’clock on January 5), we’re just a few days away from Disney starting its new morning experience on January 9 so I thought it would be useful to give you guys a few quick tips about early morning breakfasts and how this new experience might affect them. I’m going to be back soon with a full Early Morning Magic Kingdom tips post but wanted to hold that until the new experience begins so I can give you the most helpful ideas! Continue reading
Happy New Year everyone! I know your New Years resolutions are in full swing and for those of us who have health on their lists a few hundred words talking about just how delicious the most chocolatey thing in Disney is isn’t exactly helpful. You know what I say though? REWARDS! For the next few minutes consider this your reward for being so healthy when you’re not in Disney! Or just your reward for being awesome? Your reward for the bazillion Disney miles you log on every day of your trip? Pick your favorite and let’s dig in! Continue reading
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Okay, I might be getting ahead of myself here but it’s been Christmas around Once Upon A Mickey Bar/Tee for like, a month now! Thinking about all things Merry, I wanted to bring you this review of our lunch at Contempo Cafe over at Disney’s Contemporary Resport last Christmas. I had seen a lot of good things about, well really all the gluten free food at the Contemporary so we headed over to check out Contempo and we were so glad we did!
