I had the opportunity to head to Landscape of Flavor again for the Gluten Free & Dairy Free at WDW Blog meetup! It was great to meet with some other folks who also have special diets. We decided to meet for breakfast to check out the offerings.
When we arrived in the food court, I found a manager who then brought out Chef Dan. I think Chef Dan might have been over at Pop Century before and has now moved over to AoA. He was very nice and quite peppy (me? not so much. I'd had only about 4 1/2 hours of sleep!). There were two of us ordering with a special diet. First up was a blog meetup guest who is a child. Chef Dan explained that he could make gluten free/dairy free Nemo waffles with fresh fruit and breakfast meats. For the children's meal, my companions ordered gluten free/dairy free waffles with fruit & turkey bacon. Thinking this sounded like a good idea, I ordered the same but added turkey bacon and chicken sausage.
When Chef Dan brought them out, I noticed that mine was a regular shaped waffle and that the children's meal was Nemo waffles. I thought this was very interesting--usually there's no difference; they make everything on the same maker whether it's for a child or adult. In any event, it was definitely GF/DF. I'm glad I got to see the Nemo waffles too--they are adorable!
First up was the children's breakfast meal of the waffle and turkey bacon with fruit. The blog meetup guest seemed to really enjoy it. She even let me take a picture of it for the blog, which was really nice of her :)

Overall, I'm not sure I'd go for the waffle again, but I think I'd try something more egg/protein based like an omelet. I would definitely get the turkey bacon though again. That was a real winner for me. A blog reader also told me that she got the "steak and eggs" breakfast sandwich. She said they can make it on an Udi's hamburger bun with Tofutti cheese and they have both the American and mozzarella versions of the Tofutti to choose from. They served it with fries as the breakfast potatoes have dairy. That's really good to know because I think I might go that route next time!
Overall, I found the chef to be very accommodating and friendly and the options to be fairly good. For me, I do better when I eat more protein based breakfasts and less sugary ones (or ones that have a better ratio of protein to sugar), but I enjoyed the meal overall. Also on a note about the prices. They were really reasonable. Mine was $5.99, which was a bargain in my opinion. I think it's a really affordable place to eat for breakfast and dinner.
A 7 out of 10 for this trip.
