    Is it possible to get a list of foods served that are dairy free outside of the vegan menu? My daughter has a dairy allergy, and I’m trying to plan ahead.

    Hello, Cassandra, welcome to planDisney. Your question hits close home as we travel with a child with a severe allergy as well.  Planning ahead to feel comfortable about your options is exactly what I went through on our first trip to Walt Disney World.

    Unfortunately, there isn’t a list of foods served that are specifically dairy-free, but what you can do to begin your planning is identify restaurants that look appealing to you based on location and theming.  Then, review their menu online to see what food options are available that are dairy-free. One of the things you can look for on each menu for quick identification of plant-based offerings, is to look for the image of a green leaf. Any items with this image are made without animal meat, dairy, eggs, and honey.

    For example, when we rope drop Disney’s Hollywood Studios, our boys head straight to Toy Story Land to jump in line for Slinky Dog Dash. But before we get in line, my wife and I head to Woody’s Lunch Box to grab a Lunch Box Tart and coffee to enjoy in the queue. Looking at the current breakfast menu, there are two plant-based options for breakfast: Totchos with “chili”, “cheese”, green onions, and corn chips or the plant-based Toasted Cheddar Sandwich made with melted “cheddar” on toasted sourdough bread. The menu also breaks down specific allergen-friendly options that are Gluten/Wheat, Egg, Fish/Shellfish, Milk, Peanut/Treenut, and Soy Allergy-Friendly.

    One thing that we always do to double check is make a special dietary request with the Cast Member taking our order about our allergy before ordering. Then, we ask for the list of ingredients for the items on the menu. The Cast Member will provide a binder and help you locate the food item of interest and then review the ingredients used. Typically, at most table-service restaurants, the chef will visit the table to review your allergy with you and will make every attempt to modify something on the menu to make it allergy free specifically for your little one!

    After some quick research, I can’t pass up the opportunity to recommend you visit Aloha Isle in the Magic Kingdom for a DOLE Whip and Satuli Canteen in Animal Kingdom for one of their bowls!

    I hope this helps your planning, Cassandra!
