      Somehow the words “going to” got cut out of my sentence above! My grammar was much better prior to spell check!

    It’s good to hear that arm of the company finally caught up to the rest. I’ve heard that the Disney theme parks are some of the most gluten free friendly vacation destinations anywhere. It really is the happiest place on earth! Can’t wait to take a family vacation there when my kids are older!

    I knew that they would do something to fix this mess. The Disney parks and cruises have excellent reputations for being very good at gluten-free and allergen-free dining. (and of course, if the money-making aspect is at stake, people listen. Sorry, just the cynic in me talking ) :)

    The video was very well done! Cute kiddos.

    Kudos to all who participated in setting things right.

    ah, the haters make me giggle!.

    Happy Friday all. Cheers!

      I would like to think their participation in Make-A-Wish, and other programs like it where they have to be really conscious of things like that, has a great deal to do with it. But they are a for-profit company and where there’s money to be made…. ;)

    Hey Jimmy Fallon, see it’s really not that hard.

    But in better news, Hey Irish Heart, we went to Disneyland last summer and they couldn’t have been better/more cooperative about making sure we were gluten-free. Even the popcorn stands would pull out the box/call the manager to make sure everything was ok. Hey Jess, it’s probably just your subconscious trying to prevent you from forming the sentence “I’m going to let my child watch Jessie”. Hey Dude, that bakery is our local Gluten-Free bakery, Mariposa Bakery in Oakland, California. It totally rocks!!! If you ever make it Oakland, the cinnamon rolls are on me.

      If you come to mid- east coast FL, let me know. I’ve got your back.
      I mean that.

    Sounds like a very positive development after that episode earlier this year! Since I’m in Canada I can’t watch the video (“We’re sorry, this video cannot be played in your region.” — I get this a lot from Hulu, etc) so I’ll take your word for it (GD and everyone else) that they did things right. Perhaps the Jimmy Fallons of the world could benefit from watching.

    If anyone has a Cdn-friendly link to share I’d definitely like to check it out. Unfortunately my own googling hasn’t turned up anything; closest I could find was a youtube channel called PassThePlates with a few (much) older instalments of the series, which may or may not be Disney-sanctioned, and hasn’t been updated in over five years.

    Always great when a company not only stops doing something badly, but they go farther and help with creating solutions. Still just baffled at whoever thought the the original storyline was a good idea, but v. v. glad that they’ve moved on to this.

    And I’ve been missing Oakland a fair bit lately – seeing that bakery is adding hunger pangs to the homesickness ones! Time to get to some more holiday baking …

    Am I the only one that cannot find the video? Maybe it’s cause I’m in Australia, but every time I click on the link, or even copy and past the link into the browser, it just redirects to the Disney homepage, and searching for the video comes up with nothing. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    I think it only plays if you’re browsing from within USA. I’m in Canada and it also fails for me as I noted above.

      Yep…I’ve heard from many outside the U.S. Can’t view it. Not sure why Disney would do that…

        It’s likely an international digital rights issue. I’ve been blocked like this several times before from other sites, esp Hulu. When I browse Hulu I get blocked w/this message:

        “Sorry, currently our video library can only be watched from within the United States.

        “Hulu is committed to making its content available worldwide. To do so, we must work through a number of legal and business issues, including obtaining international streaming rights. Know that we are working to make this happen and will continue to do so. Given the international background of the Hulu team, we have both a professional and personal interest in bringing Hulu to a global audience.”

        I don’t know exactly from WHOM they’re supposed to obtain such rights, but Disney is prob up against the same barrier.

    Anyone else a little miffed that they didn’t mention Celiac’s disease once?

      I’m looking at it as a step forward. Baby steps is what it’s all about.

    kudos to GD and disney!

    though of course, tonight i watched my first episode of duck dynasty (not by choice), and one of the bearded dudes (i think it’s the same mouthy one everyone is talking about) made a snide comment about a couple in a restaurant asking about food suitable for someone with “gluten allergy.”

    granted, the couple was rather clueless and precious – they described themselves as “pescatarians,” which is really an incredibly irritating way to say, “i’d like some fish, please” – and followed that with the “gluten allergy” bit (which may or may not have been staged). if i were a waitress i’d be rolling my eyes at them, too.

    but i do get tired of the media treating bona fide, serious medical conditions like celiac/gluten intolerance and gluten allergy (which ignoring causes real harm) with the same derision as some of these obscure levels of food choices (which ignoring causes a miffed hipster).

    i’m glad disney got the message. now if A&E would get a clue the world would that much of a better place. =)

    Thank you Disney! And thank you Gluten Dude for posting both your original story and this one. I’ve been a Disney fan my whole life. They always take care of my gluten free needs at all the parks, hotels, and even the cruises. I’m so happy to see the educational short on gluten free awareness.
