    We are going to disneyworld in June. My DS who is 6 is lactose intolerant and cannot eat ice cream. Do the sundae bars have frozen yogurt (which he can eat a little of) or sherbet on them? He will be so upset if he gets left out of the make your own?

    I'm not sure which restaurant you are asking about (Chef Mickey's?), but I can tell you that Disney does an outstanding job of catering to dietary restrictions. First, make sure that you include a notation about your son being lactose intolerant in your reservations.  At any counter service restaurant, you can ask to see a list of ingredients.

    You are welcome to email Disney directly to ask specific questions, too:

    As for ice cream, many of the restaurants offer the option or rice or tofu ice cream. At the ice cream carts, there are fruit bars and Itzakadooze ice pops, which I believe are free of lactose. 

    I'd also encourage you visit and do a search for Walt Disney World for a thorough review of dairy free food offerings.
