    Is Coconut Dole Whip now vegan?

    Hey-howdy-hey, Alanna, and welcome to planDisney! You're in the middle of your Walt Disney World Resort visit, so I hope it's going magically! My family eats a plant-based diet, so let's look at those delicious frozen treats and which ones are dairy-free.

    The Pineapple DOLE Whip® is synonymous with a Disney vacation, and the good news is that the regular fruit flavors are dairy-free. However, if you choose to have your treat with the "swirled" option, it will be combined with vanilla soft-serve which contains dairy. I chatted with a friendly Cast Member who said the coconut swirl is typically just a flavored version of the vanilla, so it will also contain dairy. 

    Since menu items are constantly changing, my tip is to ask at the location where you see a flavor you like. All restaurants and kiosks should be able to provide allergy information, so there could be a coconut-flavored swirl out there that is plant-based. I'm constantly amazed at the variety of plant-based items offered at the Disney theme parks, so I'm wishing on a star that the coconutty goodness you crave might be plant-based in the future!

    I did some online research about all the different flavors available, and my takeaway is always to ask if any flavor is dairy-free before you place your order. There are so many delicious combinations and limited-time offerings that it's hard to know the latest. Variety is the spice of life, Alanna, but only if it's plant-based!

    For an adventurous treat, you can always swirl two fruit flavors together. My favorite combination is at Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom Park, where I've ordered a Pineapple and Raspberry Swirl. Just thinking about it transports me to the Florida sunshine!

    Alanna, I hope your time at Walt Disney World is full of magical memories and the sweetest of treats. Please stop by planDisney anytime!

    Magic awaits,
