Dole Whip - Not dairy-freeOne of the most popular treats at Disney World is the Dole Whip soft serve. A few years ago, we posted about the change in formula, making it dairy-free, but with a cross-contamination risk. However, a couple of years ago, Disney World made the pineapple soft serve the exclusive offering at Aloha Isle, then made the Dole Whip available in several other locations. So, we thought it was time for an update, since our previous posts are still top pages on our website.

While the Dole Whip is now free of most of the top 8 food allergens, it does contain coconut oil and carries a warning for tree nuts. Check ingredients at the Precision Foods website and also, verify with the Cast Member and ask to see the ingredients in their Food Allergy Book.

Where to find Dole Whip at Disney World

Dole Whip at Magic Kingdom

In Magic Kingdom at Aloha Isle. However, Aloha Isle and Sunshine Tree Terrace swapped places, due to the demand of the Dole Whip. Aloha Isle is now located near the Magic Carpets of Aladdin and the Tiki Room.

Dole Whip at Animal Kingdom

In Animal Kingdom, in Africa at Tamu Tamu Refreshments. Here, you’ll find the classic Dole Whip and two varieties with rum.
Check out the Tamu Tamu menu

Dole Whip at Disney’s Polynesian Resort

At Disney’s Polynesian Resort, at the Pineapple Lanai on the way to the pool. Keep in mind, the Dole Whip served here includes the vanilla flavor, which opens up the possibility for cross-contamination. However, make the Cast Member aware of your allergy and they will take extra caution to avoid cross-contamination.

Dole Whips at Captain Cooks are self-serveYou can also find a Dole Whip dispenser in Captain Cooks, the quick service restaurant. It’s a self service dispenser, so there could be a cross-contamination risk from other patrons.

Also, around the corner at the outdoor Trader Sam’s Tiki Bar, you can find Dole Whips with rum, again.

Dole Whip at Disney Springs

Update! You can now get Dole Whip at Marketplace Snacks.

‘Ohana dining with a soy allergy

This quick review was provided by Amy, who is allergic to soy.

Miserable experience here tonight. Chef basically said: don’t eat anything but the meat. Said he’d make me a roll and salad. Salad didn’t come until my entire party was done eating. Still haven’t gotten the roll. Couldn’t eat any of the appetizers and he didn’t offer me any substitutions except rice or plain noodles. Now, I like meat as much as the next person, but a dinner it does not make. We’re on the dining plan so I paid the same amount to eat meat that everyone else did for an entire meal. He did come up w an allergy friendly dessert that was pretty much just vanilla ice cream, berries, and chocolate syrup. Not at all original or unique.

As a side note, the service was miserable too. Never asked if we wanted a kid’s meal for the 4 year old in our party or if we wanted any alcoholic drinks.

Disney Kona Cafe dairy-free egg-free sundaeChef Amber was a standout for us on our vacation.  When she found out that my daughter had never eaten in a restaurant before, due to her allergies, she went out of her way to make our night special.  My daughter saw a hotdog on the kids menu, but was told they did not have a safe hotdog bun or French fries.  However, Chef Amber brought her gluten free buns to make her own mini hotdogs, baked her some fries in the oven and made her green beans.

She also made my daughter her own, make your own sundae bar, with rice dream ice cream, Hershey’s chocolate syrup, Mickey sprinkles, crushed Enjoy Life cookies and Cotton Candy!  She was in heaven and talked about Amber all week!  Amber gave both daughters a lei and told us to email her directly if we were coming back so she could prepare something special for the girls.  She was really a stand out chef on our vacation.

‘Ohana breakfast with dairy and egg allergies

'Ohana food allergy reviewThe chef arrived promptly at the table and explained he would make our daughter her own wok with everything but the eggs and her own safe waffles.

The kids loved the characters and their meal, but overall, my husband and I found the food quality at this character buffet the most disappointing.  For our personal tastes, it was too salty and greasy, without many healthier alternatives like we were able to find at the other buffets.

‘Ohana mulitple food allergy guest review

This quick review was provided by Amy, whose son is allergic to milk, peanut, and egg.

'Ohana food allergy reviewWe eat dinner at Ohana every time we visit Disney, but this was the first time with our severely allergic toddler. We told the server we were concerned about the chances of an allergen in the family style dinner or chance of cross contamination. To our surprise the head chef came to our table himself and had wonderful suggestions of steamed rice, fresh vegetables, and an appropriately prepared meat for our son to enjoy instead of sharing our table food. It was excellent service and we were able to enjoy the meal with relatively little worry.

Recommend for milk, peanut, and egg: Yes
