Gluten-Free Disney Inspired Thanksgiving Menu

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Yellow. Enjoy the ride as we share how to have a Disney Thanksgiving at home. Gluten-Free Disney Inspired Thanksgiving Menu For some of us, the magic of Disney begins with the food. I love that aspect of the parks, because it’s something I can re-create at home. About a year ago, I was diagnosed with Celiac disease. It’s an autoimmune disorder that treats gluten – the protein found in wheat, rye, and barley – as dangerous and attacks. Unfortunately, my overactive immune system goes a little overboard and I end up as collateral damage. Even the smallest amount of gluten can make me sick for days. No fun.

So we’re hitting the road, and that means road trip snacks – Disney style, of course! To make the trip even more fun, we’re surprising the kids! They know we have a trip planned, but we’ve been a little vague about the dates, so this should work. The plan is to pick them up from school on a Friday afternoon, van packed and ready to go. We’ll get on the interstate heading South and see how far we get before they figure out where we’re headed. Of course, I plan to drop plenty of hints, and I found the perfect one!...
