While a lot of things have changed since early 2020, Magic Kingdom is still a super fun place to be with quite a few Dairy Free Options.
So the good news is that with some planning and patience, you can eat without having to drag your entire kitchen with you (but always pack a snack just in case!)
The slightly less than good news is that you might need to make reservations ahead of time or be at the mercy of dining restrictions/capacity restrictions/staffing limits.
Here’s what you can do: Take some notes, Bookmark this page, Have a backup plan (snacks and catching the monorail), and Plan to Enjoy a wonderful day at the most beautiful Theme Park in Florida.
If your headed to EPCOT be sure to check out the Food and Wine Dairy Free Offerings too.

Best Dairy Free Quick Serve at Magic Kingdom
There are a number of quick service options at Magic Kingdom, and these can fluctuate depending on the season. It’s important to note that quick service is like fast food, and does not require a reservation. To learn more about the restaurants that require a reservation and their dairy free offerings head over to this Dairy Free Disney World Plan
Top 5 Quick Serve at Magic Kingdom for dairy free
- Peco Bills (Protein+ Rice Bowls)
- Pinocchio Village Haus (Pizza, Chicken Strips)
- Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe (Burger/Salad)
- Columbia Harbour House (Fish, Chicken Nuggets)
- Casey’s Corner (Dairy Free Buns+Toppings)
You *can* order these options dairy free from the MyDisneyExperience App under Mobile Ordering.
I don’t recommend this option for those with food concerns, as it was added for dietary preferences *not* allergies. For allergies it’s always better to communicate with someone who can clearly understand you have can’t have it. That it’s not a preference.
Best Sit Down Restaurants to avoid Dairy Inside Magic Kingdom Park
My favorite sit down at Magic Kingdom (especially when I have my food allergy babies with me!) is Jungle Navigation Skipper Canteen. But I’ve also found that Tony’s at the front of Magic Kingdom has some really great dairy less options!
You can eat at any of the Table Service Restaurants, it’s just going to vary what you can have there.
For example, The Plaza Restaurant is so adorable and quaint. It has the perfect view of Cinderella’s Castle and cute decor! But they serve BottomLess Milkshakes and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t alittle jealous that I didn’t get that option.
Crystal Palace is another great sit down restaurant, but you’ll need to completely avoid the buffet and have the Chef bring your food to you. There’s several meat/veggie options, and a delicious dessert brownie that I can’t recommend enough!
Lastly, the Signature Dining Options, Be our Guest and Cinderella’s Royal Table both have Dairy Free options, but I wouldn’t classify them as Signature. Don’t get me wrong- I enjoyed the food and the ambiance, but it’s not the same when you have expectations of signature items and get something you might have gotten at one of the other eateries for half the price.
Best Dairy Free Snacks at Magic Kingdom
Curiouser and Curiouser
If you exclude the whipped cream topping, this is a fun drink great for hot days! And you can find this right by the spinning tea cups at Cheshire Cafe. (if the cafe is closed, as it sometimes is, walk alittle further to Auntie Gravities for a pretty decent strawberry smoothie!)
Peter Pan’s Float
Grab the Peter Pan Float over in Fantasy Land at StoryBook Treats! You’ll need to tell them it’s Dairy Free and have them exclude the ‘chocolate leaf’ for the top!
This comes Dairy Free without any hassle- it’s made with coconut oil! You’ll find popcorn stands all around the park, just follow your nose!
Dole Whip (most flavors!)
You can get Dole Whip at several locations in the parks- just be careful to clarify that you have an allergy. Some places serve a dairy dole whip in the same location.
The best place to get Dole Whip is Aloha Isle.
Enjoy Life Protein Balls
These are so yummy and found at The Main Street Confectionary.
It’s super important to note that not all options above will always be dairy free. We learned this the hard way when we had cross contamination of dole whip at the Aloha Isle quick serve because they also have dairy dole whip flavors. You always want to check these things, and I cover this and more important details inside the Beginner’s Allergy Book for Disney World.
Please also consider bringing in your own snacks. We do the non-chocolate versions of Lara Bars and GoMacro Bars + some finger foods like trail mix when we head to the parks! Disney has a really great policy for bringing in food (with or without an allergy!) but you need to make sure it won’t melt!

Coffee and Drinks that don’t contain dairy at Magic Kingdom
Staying hydrated at the theme parks is crazy important and one of the biggest things you’ll need to consider as you walk ten thousand plus steps in the Florida Humidity.
For Coffee, you can always grab a drink at your resort or enjoy one of the options in the park. On Main Street USA you’ll find Starbucks, and they offer several dairy free alternatives.
You can also grab some morning java at the Ticket and Transportation Center before heading in the Parks at Joffery’s Coffee. While Joffery’s is found in the parks at various locations, most of them don’t have a milk alternative like the main kiosks do!
Items we always bring with us!
We are huge fans of Disney World, but between the reservations and lines, it can sometimes get a little hairy for food.
So we always bring three things with us!
Our Clevermade Cooler– it’s collapsible and insulates really well! We bring it with some snacks, or we bring it empty so that way we can grab snacks all at once and save them for later. It comes in a few colors (we grabbed blue as it’s easy to spot!) Best part is folding it up super small for when you don’t need it.
Stainless Steel Water Bottles– you can absolutely bring in plastic bottles if you prefer. We just don’t like the way it tastes. Please note that glass isn’t allowed!
Snacks galore!- I mentioned this above, but we always bring snacks in. Yes you can fill up on popcorn and ice cream- but we prefer a bit more balance in our diets. Our favorite items we always bring are goMacro bars as they don’t melt, and we also bring in electrolyte powder so we don’t need to grab gatorade.
Dairy Free Magic Kingdom FAQs
Where can you find Dairy Free Ice Cream at Magic Kingdom?
The most common place to find dairy free ice cream is at the Magic Kingdom Plaza Ice Cream Parlor. They typically have two types of non-dairy ice cream! You will also be able to find sorbet at most of the sit down restaurants inside Magic Kingdom Park.
Does Magic Kingdom label which options are Dairy Free?
Yes, Disney World introduced a new plant based symbol on all of their menus that shows which items are made without Dairy, Meat or Honey. For Dairy free options that contain other animal products, you can look at the allergen menus and then speak with a manager or chef to confirm.
