Nomad Lounge - Disney's Animal Kingdom

During our trip to Disney World in July, we had lunch at Nomad Lounge in Disney's Animal Kingdom both days we visited the park. 

Nomad Lounge serves small plates and drinks from around the world. It is located next to Tiffins, right outside of Pandora. Indoor and outdoor seating is available, and you don't need to worry about advance dining reservations, because Nomad Lounge only accepts walk-ins. We like to arrive at Nomad Lounge right before they open at 11:30, but on both days we visited Disney's Animal Kingdom, they opened at 11:00.

Morimoto Asia - Disney Springs

During our trip to Disney World in July, we had dinner at Morimoto Asia, a table service restaurant in Disney Springs.

We have dined at Morimoto Asia many times since it opened in The Landing area of Disney Springs in 2015. Like the restaurants in the Italy Pavilion at Epcot, and The Edison, Maria & Enzo's and Enzo's Hideaway at Disney Springs, Morimoto Asia is run by the Patina Group, which does a great job accommodating its gluten free customers.

Backlot Express - Disney's Hollywood Studios

On the last day of our trip to Disney World earlier this month, we had lunch at Backlot Express, a quick service restaurant at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

I mobile ordered our meal in the My Disney Experience app. If you do not see allergy-friendly options listed, click on "See All Categories" or keep scrolling to check for allergy-friendly choices. You can not mobile order if you have more than one food restriction, and not all quick service restaurants at Disney World have allergy-friendly options available for mobile order in the app. In the theme parks, you should be able to mobile order gluten free options at most quick service restaurants, but at the resorts, plan on talking to a manager or a chef. Talking to a manager is always an option at the theme parks. Just speak to the cast member guarding the door, and yes, cast members are literally guarding the doors to quick service restaurants during the pandemic. They want to make sure people do not enter restaurants until their food is ready, but I was allowed to enter restaurants when I needed to speak to a manager or chef before placing my order.

AbracadaBar - Disney's BoardWalk

The week of my 50th birthday, we stayed at Disney's BoardWalk Villas, one of our favorite Disney Vacation Club resorts.

Tuesday night, we had reservations for dinner at Kona Cafe, but no one was overly excited by the menu, and we had eaten a big lunch at Nomad Lounge at Disney's Animal Kingdom, so we changed our plans. My husband and I decided to eat at AbracadaBar on Disney's BoardWalk, while our daughters had dinner elsewhere with my parents and nieces.

Topolino's Terrace - Disney's Riviera Resort

On our recent trip to Disney World, we had dinner at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera, a signature dining restaurant located on the top floor of Disney's Riviera Resort.

According to Disney's website, the restaurant, "takes its name from the Italian name for Mickey Mouse." We originally booked Topolino's for both breakfast and dinner on our first full day staying at Disney's Riviera Resort, but we ended up canceling our breakfast reservation, because the menu did not look that interesting to me, and it is currently the priciest breakfast on property, because it is still a character meal.
