This quick review was provided by Ann, who is allergic to gluten and soy, and has a vegetarian diet.

Dining gluten free at La Hacienda de San AngelLa Hacienda de San Angel is a newer restaurant that was put in at “Mexico” in Epcot. The chef here was AWESOME, but I can’t remember his name. He came out and told us what we could and could not have and let us make our own meal, catered to our needs. So we had specially-made veggie tacos on homemade corn tortillas with Mexican rice.

Gluten free at La Hacienda at EpcotThis was, hands down, the absolute best allergy dining experience I have ever had on WDW property, and we will be back. The food was so filling and fresh, and the restaurant staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about allergies.


Recommend for gluten and soy: Yes

La Hacienda de San Angel food allergy reviewLocated in Epcot’s Mexico Pavilion, this restaurant has authentic style Mexican food, not Tex-Mex. Most likely, you will not find typical cheese enchiladas, burritos, fajitas, or chili con queso. What you will find is Pescado a la Talla (grilled red snapper), chicken, pork (with mole sauce), seafood, flank steak with onions, cactus leaves and beans, and shrimp tacos. The full menu is available here: Epcot La Hacienda dinner menu

We’ve read on other food allergy sites that the wait staff are not properly trained to handle or even understand food allergies. For those who don’t know, this restaurant is not owned by Disney. Therefore, they may not adhere to the Disney standard of excellence when dealing with food allergies. We also had difficulty communicating our dairy allergy and, consequently, could not reach a level of comfort to allow our daughter to eat there. Fortunately, we had anticipated this possibility and packed a dinner for her. Disney lists San Angel Inn as a great place to dine if you have a gluten allergy.San Angel Inn at Epcot with a dairy allergy

The Mexico Pavilion also has a quick service restaurant called La Cantina De San Angel, located on the lagoon. This might be a better opportunity for Mexican dining with kids or if you like more Tex-Mex items, like nachos, tacos, burritos, and quesadillas.

Both restaurants serve fabulous margaritas.

La Cantina may be a better Mexican restaurant for food allergies
