    What brand of ice cream cones are used on Disney Cruise ships? Are they gluten free?

    Hello, Sasha, and welcome aboard planDisney!

    I’m so glad you sailed by with your question. One of my favorite things about a Disney Cruise Line vacation is stopping by the soft-serve ice cream locations on each of the ships!

    My planDisney pals and I did some checking on the ice cream cones offered at the soft-serve ice cream locations. While the specific brand name is not available prior to your cruise, once on board, you can ask a Crew Member at the ice cream location who can typically provide you with the brand and known allergen information. Of course, you can request a gluten-free ice cream cone, which will be provided if available. There are also serving cups available rather than a cone, just in case.

    Sasha, special dietary requests may be made through the Special Services form up to 3 days prior to embarkation for your cruise. Also, there is an Onboard Dining Session, which explains how to navigate allergies and special dietary requests, offered on embarkation day. You can find the time and location of this session in the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App or stop by the Guest Services desk once you board the ship. I also recommend that you notify the dining team while ordering at any dining venue, including room service. In my experience, the dining team at all the rotational dining experiences will ask about any dietary restrictions or allergies on the first night of your cruise, but it is always a good idea to remind them each night. 

    Now, here is one of my favorite Disney Cruise tips for you, Sasha! Stop by the complimentary beverage station and pick up a cup that you can then take to the soft-serve ice cream location. You not only get a little extra ice cream, but you can also head back to the beverage station and make yourself an ice cream float! 

    I hope this information has been helpful to you and that you enjoy lots of cold treats during your cruise. You still have lots of time before your cruise, so sail back by and let us help you with any questions you may have or if you would like more tips for making the most of your vacation. We all scream for ice cream, especially on a Disney Cruise!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
