Trattoria al Forno Walk-Up Breakfast - Disney's BoardWalk

Over Thanksgiving Break, we had breakfast and dinner at Trattoria al Forno on Disney's BoardWalk.


Disney's BoardWalk Villas was our first Disney Vacation Club home resort, and we have so many great memories from vacations spent there with my extended family over the past 20 years. Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas are our favorite for gluten free dining, and Copper Creek Villas at the Wilderness Lodge are the best for holiday atmosphere, but we love to stay at the BoardWalk for the location, because it is an easy walk to Epcot and Hollywood Studios.

Gluten Free in New York City - Sit-Down Restaurants

Over Christmas Break, we spent nine nights in New York City, one of the best cities in the United States for gluten free dining.


On Christmas Day, we had dinner at Senza Gluten, one of our favorite restaurants in New York City. Everything at Senza Gluten is gluten free, and they recently opened Senza Gluten Cafe & Bakery down the street, which I will review in my next post about fast casual dining in New York City.

Disney World Gluten Free Holiday 2018

My favorite time to visit Disney World is over Thanksgiving Break, because we can enjoy the holidays at Disney without the Christmas Break crowds.


We would probably prefer to vacation at Disney World in early December, but my husband and I work at a school, and our daughters are in 8th grade, so we limit long vacations to our school breaks.

Le Cellier Steakhouse - Epcot

Over Thanksgiving Break, we had lunch at Le Cellier Steakhouse, a signature dining restaurant in Epcot at Disney World.


We had not dined at Le Cellier in 3 1/2 years, so we were excited to try it again.


Coral Reef Restaurant - Epcot

Over Thanksgiving Break, we had lunch at Coral Reef, a table service restaurant in Epcot at Disney World.


We have eaten at Coral Reef before, but it had been a few years, so we were excited to dine there again.

My Favorite Table Service Restaurants at Disney World

Updated December 2, 2018 

Last weekend, I updated My Favorite Quick Service Restaurants at Disney World post, which you can view here. Today, I am tackling my favorite table service restaurants, starting with some of my favorites at Disney Springs and the Disney Resorts, where no park pass is needed. My family prefers to eat at table service restaurants, because we feel the quality of the food is better, there are more gluten free options for me, and we like to sit and relax a couple of times each day during our Disney vacations. Links to more detailed, specific reviews are found throughout this post, including the headings.



Sanaa, which features African cooking with Indian flavors, is probably our favorite restaurant at Disney World. I love that I can watch the animals on Sunset Savannah, while I enjoy gluten free naan with accompaniments, lamb shank, butter chicken, and their amazing triple chocolate mousse dessert. Sanaa is open for breakfast (quick service), lunch, and dinner, and it is our top pick for holiday meals, including Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

The Plaza Restaurant - Disney's Magic Kingdom

There are two reasons that we go to The Plaza Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom at Disney World - milkshakes and Chef Ken.


The Plaza Restaurant is a table service restaurant located at the end of Main Street, U.S.A. I had lunch there with my daughters in July, during our summer trip to Disney World.
