We usually go to Disney Springs on arrival night. Raglan Road is one of our favorites and is a great choice for the awesome gluten-free offerings. My husband and I are both gluten-free (I have an allergy), and they can make most of their menu GF (including onion rings and fish and chips!). It is also a very festive atmosphere, I would think it would be perfect for a bday celebration!
Our first trip is next month and now I'm second guessing our ADR for our arrival night. I want it to be a fun place, we arrive the day my son turns 8 and we're surprising my children. They won't know we're going to disney until we're actually at Disney. We are not going to do a park on arrival night, so we can pretty much eat at any place that has an opening lol. I have 6:30pm reservations for Raglan Road. My son (the birthday boy) has Celiac so he has to eat GF. I'm planning on ordering a cake from the Erin Mckenna and have it deliver to the restaurant we eat. What restaurant suggestions do you guys have to celebrate a birthday and kick off our first trip to WDW.
