As you may know, our 11-year dairy allergic son recently ate in Disney restaurants with much success. His first time eating out, and the joy cannot even be fully described. The chefs are amazing.
In addition, he enjoyed his first fast-food experience at a Disney quick service location. A moment we will cherish forever, seriously.
But now it’s time to talk about snacks. Specifically, labeled and pre-packaged snacks at Disney.
I was on a mission, friends. A mission to bring back every single potentially dairy-free treat I could find to show you. And it’s most all in the collage you see above.
But disclaimer, we didn’t try most of these treats because we frugally packed our own and carried them in backpacks. Literally, we only bought Miles an Enjoy Life candy bar and a couple sodas during our three days in the parks. Self-control, I know! The majority of our time was spent on rides, in shows, and in restaurants. No complaining here!
But there was just something about knowing there WERE safe snacks to be found should we need them.
Most notably, the safest packaged treats were the Enjoy Life products scattered throughout the parks and resorts. Chocolate candy bars, sunbutter bars, cookies, and trail mix. Not all shops have all this stocked, it’s hit and miss so always keep your eyes open. Note, the Enjoy Life treats are mostly prepackaged in adorable Disney wrappers!
I’m also reading that there’s a snack counter at Epcot’s Sunshine Seasons that stocks Enjoy Life and Surf Sweets gummies. So bummed that I didn’t know and look for this. Next time!
In addition, I took pictures of other treats that appeared to be safe for milk allergy although we didn’t try them all. I just want to give our fellow milk allergy friends a starting point here.
If you can verify in the comments on any of these, please do! Suckers, gummies, animal crackers, chocolate cookies, PEZ, rock candy, cotton candy in a tub. Have these been safe for your milk allergy family?
I tried not to photo anything labeled as processed in a plant with milk.
Be sure to read all labels for yourself as ingredients can change.
We hope you get to try some of these treats on your next Disney vacation.
