How to Travel with Disabilities Such as Celiac Disease or Another Auto-Immune Condition
If you have a loved one, friend, or relative that you enjoy spending time with but they don't quite understand the challenges of traveling gluten-free, forward them this article. I decided to write this blog post to give insight to those who don't live with a chronic illness to better understand what life is like when you live with an auto-immune disease or another chronic disease, syndrome, or disability.
Did you know that having an auto-immune disease such as Celiac, Hashimoto’s or Rheumatoid Arthritis equates to having a disability? Many people usually picture a person in a wheelchair or someone who has lost their vision, however; disabilities don’t always show up on the outside!
Traveling with a disability can be difficult and needs more preparation and consideration when creating travel plans. There are many details to consider before you go on your trip to have a great travel experience. Here is what you want to think when traveling with disabilities.

Delectable Gluten Free Desserts Ready to Go!
COVID-19 situation is stressful to say the least. When I’m stressed I know that having a sweet dessert is a good temporary solution to feeling good. Make sure its a small serving, though, as you don’t want to add gaining weight to the list of activities you’re doing during the COVID lockdown!
Share your favorite gluten-free desserts with your family members who aren’t gluten-free, with a friend by dropping off a gluten-free treat on their porch to show that you are thinking about them, or to a co-worker who has celiacs disease that you haven’t seen face to face in a few months. Whatever way you send, drop-off or ship your gift, the celiac or gluten-free friend on the receiving end will sure appreciate your thoughtfulness!

Planning Your Next Trip to Disney During COVID is a Bit More Challenging with the Pandemic
First, you must reserve your time at any one of the four Disney theme parks that are currently open through the Disney Park Pass Reservation System. “To enter a park, both a park reservation and valid admission for the same park on the same date are required for each person in your party ages three and up (limit one park per day Disney is controlling the number of people in the park to maintain social distancing).”
FastPass+ service is suspended as they are using additional queue space to control capacity and maintain physical distancing. We will automatically cancel existing FastPass+ selections and share any future updates on the service at a later date.
There are selected resorts Disney has opened to guests. Disney Springs shopping opened in June. Remember that COVID is changing Disney’s offerings, so make sure to check their website for more information.
Make sure to view Disney’s new COVID precautions page before you make reservations to the park. Here is a summary of precautions Disney is taking to keep everyone safe:
