    Hello! We will be sailing on the Disney Magic in January 2020 with our 16 month old. She cannot have regular milk due to a milk protein allergy so she drinks dairy free milk (Ripple). Are we able to bring bottles of this milk on board with us in a cooler?

    Hi there, Kristin!

    Ahoy and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited to “sea” that you have a MAGICal Disney Cruise Line vacation planned!  With an inevitably busy time of year upon us, I am sure you will find that your vacation will be here before you know it!

    I love that you are bringing a tiny Mouseketeer with you on your voyage with Captain Mickey!  My boys were both under one year old on their first Disney Cruise Line vacations and we have some incredible memories from those vacations!  And thankfully, Disney Cruise Line makes traveling with littles so easy by providing pack-and-plays, diaper pails, kid-friendly food and plenty of entertainment!  Like your little one, my boys had (well, still have) dairy allergies, and I must say Disney Cruise Line does an excellent job of accommodating Guests with dietary restrictions and allergies…even the littlest ones!  If you haven’t noted your reservation with your little one’s allergy, I recommend doing so.  You can do this online or you can also contact Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532 and they will make the note on your reservation.  This will alert your dining room servers and they will discuss with you your needs and make accommodations as needed to ensure your little one’s safety.

    While onboard food and beverage is always subject to change, we are always able to get dairy free milk – with options for almond, soymilk and sometimes even rice milk, as needed – both in the main dining rooms and at Cabanas buffet restaurant.  We would often bring extras down from breakfast or order it from Room Service so that we could keep some in our stateroom cooler to have on hand for our little guys.  Since perishable items are listed on the prohibited items list, I would recommend not bringing milk with you, but if it is a necessity then I suggest contacting Disney Cruise Line directly and speaking to a Cast Member about exceptions.  I know you want to be readily prepared, so doing this sooner than later would be my recommendation.  

    Hopefully this information is helpful to you, Kristin!  If you have any other questions, please come back and visit us again!

    Happy Sailing!
