pineapple-lanai-wdwDo you know what a Dole Whip is?  Well, a Dole Whip is a frozen treat that is a very popular snack for guests vacationing at Walt Disney World.  It has an almost cult-like following. This vegan, non-dairy, gluten-free soft-serve product is available in pineapple and orange and vanilla flavors with pineapple as the favorite.  A great way to cool off on a hot summer day is with a Dole Whip float.  It is the perfect way to use one of your snack credits on the Disney Dining Plan.


In the “old’ days, Dole Whip could only be found at the Magic Kingdom and Polynesian Resort in aloha-isle-00 wdwWalt Disney World but it can now it is popping up at a few other locations as well. There are now two locations to get this sought-after treat in the Magic Kingdom. Look for it at Aloha Isle and Sunshine Tree Terrace in Adventureland. You can usually find it at Tamu Tamu Refreshments in the Africa section at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Dole Whip is also served during the Flower and Garden Festival and the Food and Wine Festival. You can have it spiked with rum at Epcot and Animal Kingdom.


If you are not vacationing at Walt Disney World, there are recipes available online to create a little taste of Disney at home. The easiest recipe – and my personal favorite is to simply mix pineapple sherbet with 100% pineapple juice. Within a minute or so, this magically turns into a smoothie-type drink that tastes very much like Dole Whip!

Dole Whip has a little taste of sunshine in every bite. Be sure to try the legendary Dole Whip during your next Disney World vacation!
