    Emilia Asked

    Hi! Staying at AKL Jambo Villas.The woman I am traveling with is deathly allergic to any type of coconut products. Can you tell me if the bathroom products they give us have coconut in them? We would need a totally coconut free room.Just being cautious .

    Hi Emilia,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You are a fantastic friend, and your friend is super lucky to have you in her corner. So, I did some resEARch, and here is what I came up with in answer to her coconut allergy.

    The Disney Vacation Club Villas
    use the H2O+ brand line of products. I adore these products - they are delicious smelling and overall fantastic. Unfortunately, they do have a component of coconut oil in them. The sEARch took me back to my organic chemistry days (!), but what I found is that they contain Cocamidopropyl betaine (CAPB), which is a foam created from coconut or palm kernel oil. I’m assuming that because of the CAPB, your friend will not be able to use the products. shopDisney.com and h2oplus.com have the full breakdown of ingredients if your friend would like to bring the list to her allergist for verification.

    To be completely safe, I suggest your friend bring her toiletries and products. If she doesn’t want to pack them, I would order a grocery delivery where she can pick her specific products. There are several options for delivery, including through Disney Vacation Club, Instacart and Garden Grocer.

    Your friend should also indicate at all dining locations that she is allergic to coconut. The Cast Member at the restaurant will provide her with an allergy-friendly menu, and if she wants to talk with a Chef, they are often available at Table Service locations to discuss her options.

    Emilia, we never say goodbye around here, so I’ll see ya real soon!
