Disney World Gluten Free Holiday 2017

When we moved to California last year, we talked about what time of the year we would return to Disney World, and decided that Thanksgiving Break would be perfect, because we would not miss any work or school, Orlando would not be too hot, and we would get to see all the Christmas decorations. 

This year, we stayed at Disney's BoardWalk Villas, one of our Disney Vacation Club home resorts.

Stacks - Campbell, California

This weekend, we had brunch at Stacks in Campbell, California with friends. The reviews on the Find Me Gluten Free app were all positive, so I was excited to try it.

Their gluten free menu is extensive, but right away, I narrowed in on their gluten free Belgian waffles. It is hard to find safe gluten free waffles outside of Disney World or Disneyland, so I was excited to try them.

Merlot Apple-Orange Cranberry Relish

When I ask my daughters what their favorite Thanksgiving dish is, they always say garlic mashed potatoes.  That used to be the only thing they loved about our Thanksgiving meal, but now they look forward to eating cornbread stuffing and turkey with cranberry relish.

I was never a fan of cranberry relish until my family started buying Williams-Sonoma Apple-Orange Cranberry Relish. When I was diagnosed with celiac, I stopped eating it, because it has a warning that it is prepared and packaged using machines that may come in contact with wheat/gluten.
