Everything You Need to Know About Disney’s Dole Whip
Oh, Dole Whips, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…your sweet, creamy, and delicious and I simply can’t get enough of you! Dole Whips probably hold one of the top spots for Disney’s biggest cult followings and lucky for us Disney has finally decided to capitalize on this one-of-a-kind treat by expanding it’s selling locations and creating it’s own line of merchandise.
What are Dole Whips…and Where Can I Buy Them?
A Dole Whip is a Pineapple soft-serve ice cream that is smooth and creamy, but still tastes like you’re eating a fresh pineapple. It’s a wonderful treat and there are multiple ways you can eat this amazing ice cream.
- The first is the original Dole Whip, which is the soft-serve in a cup.
- The second is the Dole Whip Float, which is the soft-serve ice cream served with 100% pineapple juice. When you get a float, you get your choice of pineapple or vanilla soft-serve. I prefer the pineapple, but vanilla is also good.
- The third is the Pineapple Upside-down Cake, which is a pineapple upside-down cake topped with the pineapple soft-serve ice cream. The cake is moist and tastes wonderful with the pineapple ice cream.
- The fourth and final version is the alcoholic version where they take the soft serve ice cream and serve it with either coconut rum or dark rum.
Each of these items (I don’t drink so I’ve never tasted the alcoholic versions, but I’m sure they’re wonderful) are delicious…you honestly can’t go wrong with any of them.
Where Can You Get One?
When Dole Whips first came out they were only sold in one location. Today however, there are four locations where you can find Dole Whips…and one of them is actually outside the parks. So even when your craving a Dole Whip and you’re not at the parks you can still get one! Here are the four locations where you can purchase this heavenly dessert.
Aloha Isle is the original location of the Dole Whip and it is located in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom. This is also the only location where you can buy the upside-down pineapple cake Dole Whip
Tamu Tamu Refreshments
Located in the Africa section of Animal Kingdom is where this quick service is found and it’s where you can pick up either an original Dole Whip or an alcoholic version.
This delightful place is located at the Polynesian Village Resort. Here you can get an original Dole Whip or a Float.
The Refreshment Port
This location is found at the beginning of the World Showcase in Epcot, right before you walk into the Canada pavilion. Here you can get the original Dole Whip or the alcoholic version.
There is also currently a Dole Whip inspired treat in Disney Springs. Visit Amorette’s Patisserie and grab one of their Whipped Pineapple Eclairs for a new take on that classic Dole Whip flavor! It tasted just like a Dole Whip and was delicious.
Dole Whip Merchandise
When the Dole Whip Merchandise started showing up…I was crazy excited. Dole Whips are my favorite Disney treat and being able to buy a Dole Whip souvenir was amazing! Here are some of the different products you can find at Disney World.
The Dress Shop Dress
With this product, Disney combined two of their best things…vintage style dresses and Dole Whips!
No vintage dress is complete without accessories, so Disney also made a matching bag and headband.
If girly things aren’t your style…no worries! They also sale a baseball cap with a tiny Dole Whip embroidered on the front.
Back Pack/ Wallet
Lounge Fly has been designing amazing Disney inspired backpacks and wallets and so it was no surprise that they ended up making a Dole Whip one. (I couldn’t find the wallet when I visited, but the pattern is exactly like the backpack.)
And of course, no line of merchandise is complete without socks.
Surprisingly I haven’t seen any shirts sporting this fan favorite, but who knows maybe one day they will make one…or maybe even a spirit jersey…either would be awesome.
