Sometimes, eating with food sensitivities or dietary preferences can be a bit of a drag. And that’s never more the case than when you’re on vacation.

But once again this year, Disney is taking its commitment to offering gluten free options seriously at the 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival.

To that end, not only will you find some delicious dishes that don’t contain gluten; they’re clearly marked in the free Food and Wine Festival Passports that you can pick up at the Festival!

Today, we’re highlighting a few of the more interesting gluten free options that we’ve tried so far. And if you love sampling your way around the World sans gluten, check out our handy page listing ALL of the Festival’s gluten free options this year!

“Le Cellier” Wild Mushroom Beef Filet Mignon with Truffle Butter Sauce

Ok…this one’s a no-brainer! It’s a DFB restaurant favorite already.

But truly, this is the MOST wonderful time of the year — because you can get the “Le Cellier” Wild Mushroom Beef Filet Mignon with Truffle Butter Sauce at the Canada Booth without an advance dining reservation!

Fresh Baked Carrot Cake with Craisins® and Cream Cheese Icing — Hops & Barley

Nothing like starting with dessert, right? And if you’re going to limit your sweets at this year’s Festival, then the Fresh Baked Carrot Cake with Craisins® and Cream Cheese Icing has to be on your short list.

You’ll find this dreamy little cake at the Hops & Barley Booth, halfway around World Showcase — and the perfect spot to indulge in a decadent treat.
