If you are new to Disney World, you may not have heard of Dole Whips before. Or maybe you have heard of a Dole Whip, but you’re not quite sure what one is and you’re wondering what all the buzz is about.
Well, let me clear this cult dessert up for you.
What is a Dole Whip?
A Dole Whip is a non-dairy (lactose free) soft serve frozen dessert. It is made from puree, which is then reconstituted with tap water and frozen before serving. The infamous frozen treat is available in three flavors: pineapple, orange and vanilla – and yes you can get orange or pineapple swirled with vanilla. Pineapple is original flavor and definitley my personal favorite! A Dole Whip can also be combined with pineapple juice to create a float and word on the street is that they are awesome, but I have never personally tried one.
Where you can find a Dole Whip at Walt Disney World:
- Captain Cook’s – Located in Disney’s Polynesian Resort, Captain Cook’s offers a self-serve Dole Whip machine. Yup.
- Aloha Isle – Located just past the entrance into Adventureland at The Magic Kingdom , Aloha Isle offers Dole Whip in pineapple, orange, vanilla or swirled (in a cup or a cone). You can also get a Dole Whip float made with pineapple juice or a fresh pineapple spear. You can also get coffee, tea, or bottled water here.
Where to Find Dole Whip at Disneyland:
- Tiki Juice Bar – Located in Disneyland, the Tiki Juice Bar counter serves pineapple spears, juice, Dole Whip floats and fruit bowls in addition to the original Dole Whips.
My family goes to Disney World every year and one of the highlights of our trip is getting our Dole Whip Fix. If you’re on a Disney Dining Plan, you can use one of your snack credits to get a Dole Whip.
