The Food Allergy and Celiac Convention is hosted by two individuals with extensive knowledge about celiac disease, gluten-free awareness, and food allergies: Laurie Sadowski and Sarah Norris  are also experienced in dealing with food allergies at Walt Disney World, and have developed relationships with the Special Diets, chefs, and event planning teams there. Focused on building awareness on health and lifestyle–not just the food, but definitely the food–the convention is set to highlight awareness at the most magical place on earth! You can find The Food Allergy and Celiac Convention on Facebook and Twitter

If your planning on going to WDW then there is a new food allergy app you have to get! YoDish and Sarah Norris of Gluten Free & Dairy Free at WDW have collaborated to produce an incredible resource for gluten free and dairy free travellers heading to Walt Disney World.

YoDish: Gluten, Allergy, Vegan, Paleo, and Vegetarian Restaurants & Travel Guide

YoDish: Gluten, Allergy, Vegan, Paleo, and Vegetarian Restaurants & Travel Guide

  • Incredible resource:  Sarah has contributed roughly 200 food photos and review summaries for gluten free and dairy free (GFDF) dishes at more than 50 restaurants at Walt Disney World.  Users can easily click through to read Sarah’s full restaurant reviews on her website.  The resource will evolve as Sarah and others continue to add reviews and dish photos.
  • Perfect for Allergic Families:  Set your dietary profile to gluten free and/or dairy free, and the app shows you the GF / DF meals closest to you…wherever you are in the resort.  You do not need to search through restaurants or dishes that do not fit your diet.
  • Everyone Loves Disney:  Disney is widely praised for its leadership within the specialty diets community, and therefore, readers “like” and “share” stories involving Disney on social media.
“Disney offers so much for guests who have special dietary needs, and we wanted to highlight this unique experience for those attending the convention. We’re thrilled that the Disney Culinary Team is working with us to provide culinary demonstrations, speaking panels, and, of course, food.”
