Dairy-Free (Vegan) FROZEN Treats at Disney World

Headed to Disney World? Perhaps you are Vegan or Dairy-free – READ this list for YUMMY Frozen treats.

Hey fans, its seems my Vegan/Dairy-Free Blog posts are a hit, so here is another one for you. Again this list might not be the FULL list, as Disney is always adding more items. Also…make sure to ALWAYS check the lables as products and ingrediants can change. But enjoy my list of Dairy-Free FROZEN treats in Disney World.

Dole Whip:

So this is a no-brainier. If you read my last list you would know that Dole Whips are on the list. ALL the fruit flavors, NOT the Vanilla. But did you also know that the fun, festive Dole Whip Drinks are too? The Strawberry Float themed after REDD (just remove the chocolate hat) or the Lime Peter Pan Float (also remove the Chocolate Feather). But there is also a Rum infused option at Animal Kingdom too – YUM!!

Ice Cream:

You heard me, Vegan/Dairy-Free Ice Cream can be found at several locations within Disney World. FIRST, ask at your table service location, they might have a dairy-free ice cream option for you. Also many of the Ice Cream/Sweet shops…they usually have a dairy-free option in the back. So ASK! For sure at the Plaza Inn on Main Street and Beaches & Cream at Beach Club Resort. BUT I have also gotten a Vegan Milk Shake at 50’s Prime Time Cafe AND Sci-Fi Drive-In at Hollywood Studios.

Custom made Caramel Ice Cream at Crystal Palace – so YUM!!
Other Frozen Treats:

Another option are pre-package Frozen treats found at many Kiosk locations and quick service store/restaurants. I am talking about Frozen Lemonade cups by Minute Made or sometimes you will see a Strawberry Popsicle like treat. If the kiosk is selling Frozen goodies, take a peak. The Pink Lemonade is a fave.

LeFou’s Brew:

This gem is a Hidden Dairy-Free treat that is accidentally Vegan. Its a Frozen/super cold Apple Juice concoction with hit of Mango and a Marshmallow like topping. Its like the Butterbeer for Disney 😉 You can find it at Gastons Tavern, its the signature treat.

Green/Blue Milk:

This treat is COMING Soon, like VERY, very soon. The Green or Blue Milk featured at Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is vegan. It’s made with a Dairy-free milk base, flavored with exotic fruit flavors. I am adding this to the list as its not quite milk, but not really a Milkshake…but its for-sure a Frozen(ish) treat. Some prefer the Blue, some the Green and some are getting creative and mixing the 2. Either way, enjoy a cool treat while in Batuu and get your Star Wars on.

Like I said, I am sure there are many more Diary-free FROZEN items to enjoy in the parks, these are just a few. Always check the labels and ask…but I have never been Vegan starving in the parks nor have I missed out on a Frozen Treat!!

Favorite Vegan Disney World Snacks

Thinking about visiting Disney, but worried about the snacks? Vegan or have Food Allergies? Read this…

Hey fans, as I sit here and book magical trips for my clients (aka you) I drool fondly over my favorite Disney snacks. Snacks I wish I could get at home and snacks I wish you all could send back home to me. Being Vegan with Food Allergies I am limited…but not as limited as you would think. My Favorite Disney World Vegan Snacks:

#1: Mickey Pretzel:

Ok – so my hands down favorite is the plain and simple pretzel. 100% vegan and dairy-free, just add mustard (or at least I do). The fact that its shaped like Mickey just makes it so much tastier. We love eating his ears, then his eyes, etc. Its like a game and treat all in one. I like mine lightly salted, so I might wipe off a few salt rocks…but this is a snack I won’t leave a park without. AND its rumored that the sugar ones are vegan too 🙂

#2: Popcorn:

Yep and I am talking about the buttered (non-dairy) popcorn that they sell all over the parks. The fresh, made daily as you are walking by, popcorn. Get it in a fancy cute character bucket or in a toss away cardboard cup…its yum!! It’s great to share or enjoy solo…either way, nothing beats this popular snack. Perfect for the whole family to enjoy. You can also find, pre-packaged, flavored popcorn as well – check the candy, snack stores.

#3: Dole Whip:

So this one isn’t usually a HUGE shock, but ALL fruit flavors are Dairy-Free. Avoid the Vanilla. You can get pineapple, lemon, lime, strawberry, mango, etc…so many flavors…it just depends on the location and what the popular treat is at the moment. Lately they have been making them character themed with decorations. If these decorations are Chocolate based, just pass on the decor and get the Frozen yumminess as is. I have been truly impressed by the lemon and the lime. And I LOVE the mix, when they mix 2 flavors – YUM!!

Dole Whip!!
#4: Candied Almonds:

Sorry no-nut families, but I LOVE this snack. And they are vegan!! Always double check the ingredients…but I love these SO much I am known to get them every-time I see the stand, using several snack credits and keeping them in our bags. They usually last a few days, with us taking a few handfuls as desired. The nut carts aren’t everywhere, so you have to score when you can. We have seen Almonds, Cashews and Pecans…but the almonds have my heart.

#5: Erin McKenna Bakery:

So this place is located in Disney Springs and the ENTIRE place is Vegan and Gluten Free. Many of the items are to-die-for…but its the donuts that get me drooling. Another item I will purchase SEVERAL of and enjoy for several days during our vacation. I will even place an order for delivery. But the HUGE perk of this place is getting to pick your own cupcake or cookie, from the case. No waiting for a special one from the back, you can order just like everyone else – and thats the TRUE treat.

Erin McKenna DONUT!!
#6: Fruit/Veggies:

Just adding this as a side note – obviously these items are vegan, but noting as you can find fruit cups and veggie sticks in the parks. Toss the Ranch and you are good to go! Sometimes you can spot hummus or Sabra Pretzels/Hummus snack packs.

I would love to hear your list. I know there are other Vegan treats in the parks, but my faves are the ones I can get almost anywhere. Mahalo for READING and FOLLOWING along – Nina

Woody’s Lunch Box – NEW Disney Dining REVIEW

Headed to Hollywood Studios?  Check out Woody’s Lunch Box, a Quick Service Dining Location at Disney World.

Hey FANS, today we will dig a little deeper into Toy Story Land and look into this NEW Dining Location in the area – Woody’s Lunch Box.  First this location is a QUICK Service location, meaning NO waitress and it means you NEED to find your own seat.  Seating is OUTDOORS and during peak times – it can be hard to find a seat.  Perhaps send one person scouting for a table, while the other orders.  SCORE if you get one in the shade.

See the Top – its a LUNCH BOX, an old school Metal Lunch Box. The side is the Thermos.

Atmosphere:

This location might be the CUTEST place I have ever eaten at.  Think the INSIDE of a kids (Andy’s) Lunch Box (old-School) with a thermos, animal crackers, juice box, etc.  This entire area is themed like that.

Food:

The Menu is basically kids lunch food, items you might send to school, items you might find in a kids cafeteria (just short of pizza/mac & cheese); Sandwiches with tots and punch.  With the BIG HIT being TOTCHOS (this is what my friend ordered and she enjoyed it).  Who doesn’t love TOTS and NACHOS!!

Quick Service Dining Menu…

My FOOD:

Disclaimer – I am vegan with LOTS of Food Allergies, so I am limited to what I can eat, but thrilled to have options.  I, do however, always travel with those that can order directly off the menu, so I am fully aware of the general items as well and if they were tasty or not (I keep notes).  For my most recent visit – I ordered BOTH items a Vegan can have.  Vegan Totchos and a Vegan (dairy-free) Grilled Cheese.  I took one for the team and ordered TOO much food.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

  • Vegan Totchos:  They came with TOTS, vegan chili (bean base), Frito’s (corn chips), dairy-free cheese shreds and green onions on top.  I am NOT a huge fake Cheese fan so next time I will ask for just a sprinkle (as they didn’t melt), but I found this option to be yummy and I 100% would order again.  My oldest kid would also enjoy this meal.
  • Vegan Grilled Cheese: I got a Vegan (dairy-free) Grilled Cheese, a mini cup of tots and a Cutie orange.  I couldn’t eat the other options so I was limited, but I love tots…just had LOTS of TOTS this day, lol.  Sadly I did not like this item, like at all.  I felt it lacked flavor for starters and why oh why do people think fake cheese needs to be mounted up.  Melted cheese was dripping and spilling out everywhere, it was extremely messy and hard to eat.  I was disappointed in this option and so glad the kids weren’t with me as they would have HATED this sandwich.  I was hoping this would be more than just bread and cheese, for the price I would have loved some flavor.  At home, I make mine with mustard and pickles, even dipping it in ketchup wasn’t enough, lol.  And please oh please…if you order this, ask for less cheese.
  • Food Allergy wise:  I found the staff very easy to talk too, they called a chef immediately (even though I knew what I could have).  The Chef/Manager cooked it themselves (I could watch them do it) after discussing the menu with me.  It did take several mins to get (but I will happily wait for SAFE food).  In fact while I was waiting, 3 other families asked for a chef behind me…seeking safe food.  The lady next to me was GF and also ordered the Grilled Cheese (Dairy version).  My meals came out with the Allergy Stick and I confirmed again that it was Dairy-Free, no cheese, no butter.

Everyone around me appeared to enjoy their food.  Lots of happy people eating.  This is a POPULAR place, so be prepared to wait in line and wait for a table.  We ended up sharing our table with an English couple seeking shelter from the sun, they also enjoyed their meal.  I was hungry and left full.  But most of all, I enjoyed looking around and seeing all the little details of this location.  Another BRAVO DISNEY!  Next time Disney, I’d suggest an actual shelter (perhaps an old Pizza Cardboard box or Cereal Box) from the sun and perhaps more tables.  I would also LOVE more options to eat (but I say this about every location; vegan soup, vegan dessert, flavorful sandwich, Vegan nuggets, etc)

I hope this helped anyone deciding to dine at Woody’s Lunch Box, its kinda a must when in the area, they have breakfast too.  And if you have Food Allergies, they were a popular place to dine and seemed able to accommodate all the allergies in line.  Mahalo for Reading and Following along – Nina
