I am hesitant to list a milk allergy for him because he can have small amounts of dairy - he just can't drink it all day or he gets open sores on his bum. I don't want to unnecessarily limit the food they will bring him on the ship.

As for rice milk onboard - I wonder if they will give you extra so you have it outside of the MDRs. He drinks all day - not just a glass with meals.

Lorenni,

That's so interesting .... My son is exactly the same way! I explained this to Disney. I don't want a food allergy listed. he is ok with very small amounts but he drinks almond milk non-stop all day long. They mentioned that this becoming more common and they are working on a solution. My little one gets terrible diarrhea with regular milk .... Not something I want to deal with on a cruise

Didn't ask about the rice milk being available outside of MDRs. I'll make sure to ask on Monday.

Let me know what you hear back.

If my son tolerates rice milk then I may still do the BLT and have some back up milk, if we end up ordering supplies from them.

If you list milk as an allergy, they will def not serve him ANY....no exceptions. I have a lot of food allergies to not only milk, but also many RAW fruits and vegetables. Once these foods are cooked however, the allergen is no longer present....I don't know why. DCL *refused* to serve me any of the foods I am allergic to, even if they were cooked. The parks are not like this, but I think they may be more strict on the boat. I am assuming because it would be a much bigger deal to try to get someone to a hospital if there was a bad reaction, I don't blame them for being so strict. Food allergies are no joke. Now that I am aware, I just edit what I eat myself and make sure I don't comsume anything that will make me sick.

My son is allergic to eggs, but if they are baked in something, it's fine.... I didn't list it as an allergy (since he never ate when we weren't around), and after how intense they were with the peanut allergy, I am glad I didn't! They couldn't offer us ANY pastries, etc.. Because they "may have come in contact". I was glad I hadn't mentioned the eggs!

This is smart- I wouldn't have even thought about this until it was too late! Although none of us have an allergy but a mere preference for almond milk. Perhaps I'll carry on a carton of shelf stable!

No help with the Almond Milk, though we drink it too- but just giving you a hello as a mom of a 13 yr old boy with EB

A little off topic, but they do have Imagine Rice Dream ice cream on board.

Since neither DCL nor the baby travel delivery service will stock this item we don't have much choice.

We are lucky enough to be able to drive to the port so we don't have to worry about packing liquids. I don't know when you are traveling or if you are doing it all in one day so that Disney is picking up your bags at the airport and putting them on the bus. If not I would suggest you taking the soy milk out of your bags. If you think the airlines are hard on your bags Disney is very vary hard on the bags.

Here are two thread with photos to show what I'm talking about.

If this is not possible for you I think your plan of wrapping things up is a good one. Have a great cruise.

Someone else on a booze thread suggested carefully packing liquids in one small suitcase and checking it without the DCL tags. So we would need to collect just that one bag at the Orlando airport and bring it with us on the bus. I think we'll take that route.

Good idea Lorenni

Things would be much easier for us if we weren't traveling across the country - coast to coast and into Canada. Next cruise will be out of Port Canaveral (45 min. Drive) Let me know if I can be of any help here in Central Florida

Based on the advice given in this thread, we will plan to bring a couple boxes of the shelf stable rice milk with us. thanks!

To expand on the question above, are there non-dairy frozen desserts readily available on board like sorbet or even ice pops? It'll be tough to deny my son a Mickey ice cream bar, but you have to do what you have to do.

We just got off the wonder 2 weeks ago and my DH is lactose intolerant. They had soy and lactaid onboard. They had non-diary ice cream they served him for dessert. Just be aware, the "fridges" in the cabins are beverage coolers and not real fridges. It barely kept bottled water cold. Our head waiter gave DH a quart of lactaid to keep in the room, but the fridge did not keep it cold enough.

I just got off the phone with the Special Needs department. DCL forwarded my info to them and they got in touch with me today. It was on my plans to call them but I was pleasantly surprised they called me


They will allow me to bring almond milk on board and will put a mini refrigerator in the room for me to keep the milk.
