    We are headed to Disneyland and California Adventure next month and are staying at the Grand Californian. Our youngest is lactose intolerant. Are there options for dairy-free ice cream other than Dole Whips or popsicles?

    Howdy, Lisa,

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 

    Like you, my family also really looks forward to enjoying delicious frozen treats while on vacation. My son loves a good pineapple Dole Whip from the Tiki Juice Bar. My daughter has really enjoyed the Olaf Frozen Lemonade Strawberry Bar available at Clarabelle's in Mickey's Toontown. You'll also find Raspberry Sorbet at the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop, Mango Sorbet at Clarabelle's Hand-Scooped Ice Cream on Buena Vista Street, and Rainbow Sherbet at Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor. There are also various locations that serve smoothies or other frozen drinks. Our new favorites are the Memory Refreshers at Bing Bong's Sweet Stuff.

    For milk-free deliciousness in a cone or a cup, I love the Nondairy Lemon Soft-serve available from Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats. And I would not pass up the new Dole Whip flavors available at The Tropical Hideaway, including orange and raspberry. 

    For meeting special dietary needs, the Disneyland Resort has you covered. Be sure to note special dietary requests when placing reservations online or over the phone.

    Have a deliciously magical time!
