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 at Disney World

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.

Have you tried a Dole Whip yet?

  1. Totally pinned, so I can make sure we try this when we do go to Disney!! 🙂

  2. We are going to try to go to Disney World next year I think… so I will have to make sure I get one of these because it looks delicious!

  3. I have heard of them and thought they were I’ve cream… I was right 🙂

  4. These look way too good! I would love any of the flavor combinations myself!

  5. It sounds to me like it’s smooth, creamy deliciousness. That’s what it is.

  6. That looks so good. I’d make the trip to Disney just for that! Well, not really, but I’d definitely have it while I was there.

  7. What a delicious treat. There’s nothing better than a good, frozen treat.

  8. I’ve heard of these but haven’t had one. They look delicious.

  9. Disney is our second home, but not gonna lie – have yet to try one of these. I just don’t see the appeal. Am I truly missing out? (Eventually, I’m sure I’ll be swayed, but until then, I’m more of a Liberty Square Slush Swirl girl.)

  10. Kind of sad the flavours are limited. Only one I would try is vanilla.

  11. It’s just too good to be just in the pictures I wanna eat it!

  12. That looks Dole-licious. The next time I’m at Disney World, I’m going to try that.

  13. Dole whip is my favoritest thing ever! I never leave Disneyland without going there to get a cone!!

  14. This is so delicious! So light and refreshing.

  15. This looks delicious!!! Man I really want to go to Disney

  16. Mmmmm…pineapple anything works for me! This sounds so refreshing!

  17. I haven’t heard of it. It sounds tasty good to me though. 🙂

  18. Pineapple is my favorite but you have to eat it very fast in the Florida heat.

  19. OH goodness that looks so yummy and perfect for all that walking and warm weather there.

  20. I’ve never tried one, but they do sound very refreshing and delicious! 🙂

  21. I’ve been to Disney several times but, have not had one. I must this year.

  22. I’m going to make a b-line to the Tiki Juice Bar next time I’m at Disney (in October). Can’t wait! Thanks for sharing! Yum!

  23. Shared on my FB so I remember why I am going to Disneyland or Disneyworld next year. It will be for the pineapple Dole Whip. I will sit down and savor every bite!

  24. That looks so good! I really want one!

  25. I was hoping you would say I could find Dole Whips locally. They sound really good!

  26. I get a Pineapple float at least once every trip. They are definitely my favorite Disney treat (even better when paired with a warm churro!) Ya know, in well over 20 visits, I didn’t realize they had ORANGE! I may have to try that, but pineapple will always be my favorite!

  27. I see everyone talking about Dole Whip and it makes me so jealous. I live smack dab in the center of Kansas, so I am miles upon miles away to get to try it! Enjoy some for me next time! Sounds so tasty!

  30. I have not heard of Dole Whipes. But they sound so delicious. Can’t wait to check them out next time I visit Disney World.

  31. Pure deliciousness. There’s a shop around here that got permission from Disney to sell the Dole Whip. I can get my fix in 15 minutes instead of the hour drive to Disney.

  32. This looks completely amazing, can’t wait to try!!!

  33. Now I want to go to Disney! A Dole Whip sounds so very good right now.

  34. Do you know I had no idea what a Dole Whip was until now? I want it. Ohemmmgee I want it. I would definitely used bottled water if I were doing it myself but I sure would make these babies. Yum. Disney is amazing.

  35. These sounds great and I love that it’s lactose free. I hope they make them available elsewhere too. I don’t know if I’ll ever make it to Disney but I’d love to try these.

  36. Oh my gosh that sounds SO delicious! I have heard SO much about these! I would LOVE to be able to try one, one day!

  73. I think we did get one of those – we actually got a free one included with our plan – I remember getting one at the tiki juice bar – want one now! 🙂

  75. oh that sounds great! I have seen those before, just didn’t know the name!

  76. This is perfect for me! I am lactose intolerant and would love to try a Dole Whip!

  77. I have heard SO MUCH about the Dole Whip and I salivate every single time I see one. I cannot even imagine what they taste like, but I want one. Badly. Must go to Disney, at least once, if only for a Dole Whip.

  78. Yum….can you get them anywhere else? They look delicious!

  79. Wow, I had never heard of these. They look yummy.

  80. Ohhh that looks so good! I think I would try the vanilla!

  90. OMg these dole whips are so good. Best treat on a hot summer day at Disney. Planning on getting one when we are down there for the Food and Wine Festival.

  91. I’ve never been to Disney, so I haven’t had the pleasure of trying a Dole Whip yet. Hoping to one day soon, though. (Go to Disney AND try the Dole Whip.)

  93. Nope, I have not heard of it. It looks yummy!

  94. i have never heard of it but the tiki fruit bar sounds amazing!!

  95. Fabulous! My hubby can’t handle dairy and whines like a toddler when we eat ice cream in front of him. Finally something we can all enjoy together.

  96. I’ve never tried but I’ve seen tons of pins on Pinterest for this stuff! No plans to go to Disney anytime soon so maybe I will try one of the pins! They sound delish!

  99. I’ve never heard of this in my life and I’m surely not new to Disney World. By the looks of it, it sort of reminds me of an upscaled version of Pinkberry. I absolutely love puree so I’m sure I’ll enjoy this. I would love to try all of the flavors, especially vanilla! 🙂

  100. This looks delicious! The only thing that stopped me is tap water. I never consume that as it’s full of harmful chemicals, but otherwise, yum, I want some!

  104. I’ve never head of it but saw a pin on Pinterest. I made it and it was super yummy. We are headed to Disney in a few weeks and we should try it there!

  105. I read about this on Happy Herbivore a while back I think. She was telling of vegan options in Disney World. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  106. I have never tried a Dole Whip, but it’s something I wouldn’t mind trying if I ever visit Disneyland or Disney World. Not only it comes in flavors that sounds good, but I love that they’re dairy-free.

  107. Before Dole Whip ever hit Disney, they have always been available at the Dole Factory in Oahu, Hawaii. A must stop for us!
