Heres a photo video slideshow of my latest trip to Las Vegas. Checked out the new Luxor E-Sports Arena, had a full lunch at Gordon Ramsay’s newest spot Hell’s Kitchen at Caesars Palace. Also flew United First class and experienced a gluten free dinner meal. Also tried a new spot at Paris “The Eiffel Restaurant”, was so good. Paris Casino is in fact the best gluten free casino in Las Vegas period.
Video update post below: I check out the IAH Airport and some other spots around town. Different format for catch up posts, a little more entertaining to make. Also hit up our favorite sushi spot. Nom.
So day 2 at WDW starts at the Grand Floridian for breakfast at the 1900 Park Fare. Being gluten free Disney is good at any place, but why here? Well we had kids this trip and this is the hottest breakfast spot currently according to reservations/tripadvisor etc. The character breakfast is also on point and the characters make a good round, the food was also pretty good. Not as good as Crystal Palace but good. Also a quick tip, it’s easy to navigate the parks since we had a reservation here, we got to park here and jump on the monorail straight to the parks which makes it super easy.
Finally the countdown is over and we get to go back to Disney World! The most magical place on Earth. But I think the waiting part is part of the magical journey. I will be posting daily blogs of our trip report and updating. Today we flew in from Little Rock and met up with the rest of our family then checked into our “Magical Vacation Home” and then decided to hit up Disney Springs.
I will review each aspect including the Magical Home part as well! So stick along this week and feel free to ask any questions. There will be a lot of photos and I’ll put some explanations at the bottom. I wanted to do a seperate post on reviewing the Magical Vacation Homes experience but I think I’ll just leave feedback under each photo.

Gluten Free Review
+accommodate gluten free very well
+chocolate sack (lol) can be made gluten free
So making the rounds since moving to LR to all the fine dining establishments I think I’ve finally found one I’ve said “I’d come back here next week”. I kept avoiding it because the reviews about over priced, blah blah blah. However this place is on par with some Texas steak houses that rival the beef quality of So’s Filet.
Ordered multiple cocktails, Winters Mule, Green Tea, Strawberry Martini all were poured perfectly and had a great ratio. Even though the green tea drink is meant to be a shooter it was still good. Winters Mule is my recommendation to try while it lasts, great balance of flavors. The filet Mignon came out perfect medium rare and the mash potatoes were bone marrow infused and cut with the filet was an amazing pairing choice.
For dessert we got the Cardamon Creme Brulee, sort of small but super appetizing and had an aperitif that leaves your palet feeling like your full and you want nothing else. The Chocolate Sack we got to go and they made it gluten free with the cake/crumbles on the side. Even packed the to-go box with ice to keep it safe from melting. Check this place out if your in the area, so damn good.
So we had a great Christmas, many presents were opened and many travel plans were accomplished. After Canada it was time to get back to the real life and start enjoying some home time and getting things done. One of those things was making home made gluten free fish and chips. I will link the recipe at the end. I also haven’t had any fish and chips since Disney World at Raglan Road where they’re gluten free so I was pumped. It ended up being excellent! The one thing I will do different next time is make my own tartar sauce, the store bought kind sucks.
Tried out a new burger joint in Little Rock called Burger 21 + New Gluten Free Pizza Joint. I mean for another burger joint, this place got it all right. The inside is super small, the staff is sometimes eh behind, but the food is on point.
Had the pizza burger last time on a gluten free bun and it melts in your mouth. Also the different sauces is an added amazeballs treat when you can dip your sweep fries in fluffy marshmallow sauce, ok I’ll try it and it turns out to be pretty good for the first few bites.
Try this spot out, excellent grub spot, usually fast.

very time I hit up Disney World I’ve always thought about what Disneyland was like since I forgot what it was like since it’s been so long since I went. I went when I was 12 years old and hardly remember anything.
I have to say hands down after visiting, Disneyland is way better than Florida’s Magic Kingdom, that is for sure. It’s real small, quaint and charming with a light sense of magic. Now Disney World gives you the magic for sure, Disneyland was a little hard to get into since it’s in the middle of the hustle and bustle of everything California.
Day two of Chicago was just as dope as day 1, we decided to venture out of our hotel and find some place to grab breakfast. I found on Yelp a super awesome spot called “Do-Rite Donuts” that had gluten free donuts. We walked 0.4 miles and was the smallest NYC looking type of place but sure enough had the most amazing assortment of donuts I’ve ever seen. Also the gluten free ones were yes the best gluten-free donuts I’ve ever had. If not the best gluten free of anything I’ve ever had.
Then we were off to the Museum of Science+Industry which happens to be an old World’s Fair site from 1893 that is still standing and a monument to behold. Didn’t even realize it until I left.
