    Disney Chefs are adding new gluten free items to their menus for Guests with allergies.

    One of the new items is the gluten-free naan bread at Sanaa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, this isn't on the menu, but Guests with gluten allergies can ask to speak to the chef and he can make this Indian-style bread service into open-faced naan sandwiches at lunch and the kid’s meal cheese pizza.
    “Chef Jonathan Dove has a great passion for creating items to accommodate special diet needs, as his wife has a gluten allergy,” says Chef David Njorge. Creating a gluten-free naan became a priority, and Chef Jonathan worked with Chef Amanda Lauder to come up with their delicious version of the classic Indian flatbread.

    “As culinary cast members, we leave our legacy daily in the way we interact with our guests and our fellow cast members, go above and beyond, and sprinkle pixie dust,” says Chef David.

    Angel food cake with seasonal fruit compote at is available at the Captain’s Grille at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, which is always on the menu, not a special order.

    Guests can also find hot beignets at Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory at Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter Resort. At Sassagoula they fry the beignets separately, so it’s a rare opportunity for guests with celiac disease or gluten allergies to have those hot, fresh little squares of fried dough.
