There are so many iconic foods at Walt Disney World. From popcorn to churros and from turkey legs to Dole Whip, everyone has their favorite. Sometimes it can be frustrating when you have allergies or food sensitivities that you aren’t able to participate in the joy with everyone else. One area where Disney has been making steps forward is by providing options for those with gluten sensitivities, and so I was thrilled to hear that Animal Kingdom Lodge now offers gluten-sensitivity friendly Zebra Domes!
Yes, the iconic dessert from Boma can now be purchased in a gluten-sensitivity-friendly form at The Mara (the quick service location at Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Jambo House). Check out these beauties.
It appears that the major change was simply removing the sponge cake base found in the “traditional” Zebra Domes, which means the essential flavors of chocolate and Amarula are still front and center for this decadent treat.
If Zebra Domes aren’t your thing, The Mara also offers mini cupcake brownies from Erin McKenna’s bakery at Disney Springs. These work amazingly well for people with a wide variety of allergies and sensitivities or dietary choices.
And for those who are able to have their sweets with gluten, The Mara has really stepped up their game with small cakes and themed cupcakes as well.
Are you excited about this addition to The Mara? What other foods would you like to see offered in gluten-free versions? Let us know in the comments.
