Whole milk in Disney World?

My sister was wondering if any of the quick service restaurants in the parks have whole milk? They will be transitioning my niece from formula to whole milk around the time we will be going, but we haven't seen whole milk on any of the menus.

I would hope they would....but you know how Disney has been lately about trying to force us to eat more healthy, so I wouldn't be surprised if all's available is 2 percent. Babies need the whole milk though.

We got our whole milk from the food court at our resort. I'm not sure if the QS locations have it, but you could grab some from your food court.

I ran out of milk while we were at MK. The only place I found with whole milk at the time was at Cosmic Rays. It was the only time I ran out since I was bringing the milk from our room so I can't comment on anywhere else . You may want to pop in the baby centers to see if they have it on hand just in case while you're exploring the parks. They carry a lot of stuff for sale so it might be possible they have whole milk at one of them.

Oddly, whole milk is available as a beverage for adult meals, but not with kid's meals, and the only low-fat (non-chocolate) milk available was the half-pints for kids. This means you get it in pint bottles. I'm trying to think of where else I saw it...

Sunshine Seasons
Fountainview Cafe
Main Street Bakery
Rosie's All American Cafe
Studio Catering Company


There are probably more, my parents are milk drinkers, and we kept running into "Do you want whole milk, or kid's mickey milk"

Whole milk is available at some restaurants, just not all. But a 1 year old can drink 1% or 2% while on vacation and be just fine. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics changed their stance on whole milk in 2008 to recommend that children in families with a history of obesity or heart disease switch directly to 2% milk at 1 year of age. So if the whole milk is available, great. If not, serve the lowfat milk and don't give it a second thought.

Agreed! They also now make "toddler" formula that your sis could bring if she is worried about the child's nutrition.

Most DVC related resorts have 1/2 gallon cartons of whole milk available in the supply stores.


At AKL - Jambo at Zawadi Marketplace & Kidani at Johari Treasures Gift Shop - I have noticed 1/2 gallon of whole milk when I buy our 1/2 gallon of skim milk for cereal. Also, resort CS locations, I have noticed small cartons probably 6-8 ounce cartons of whole milk.

Dvc gift shops have whole milk. Also, in Epcot at the America pavillion they have ice cold while milk in little bottles. We were thrilled when we found this for our DD. We always asked for whole milk and if not 2% was fine for her at 12.5 months.

I agree with this. My when we were transitioning our dd to whole milk from formula, we noticed that she was drinking less milk than she should. We went on vacation and the only milk we could get was 2% and 1%. She started drinking more milk. When we got home, talked to the pediatrician and she said that my dd probably didn't like the thickness of the whole milk and that 2% was fine.

So, a few days of 2% or 1% are not going to make a difference in her nutrition as long as the child is also eating well.

With my kids we always did whole milk at home, but if we were out we'd do 2% if whole milk wasn't available. Except for the first, I pretty much switched to 2% full time around 18 months because I got sick of buying two kinds of milk. Now we switch between 1% and 2%, depending on which kid(s) is with me and which color label they like better.
