For the uninitiated, a Dole Whip is a non-dairy, soft serve, frozen creation that is enjoyed served in a cup or with Pineapple juice as a float (as pictured here).
If you are craving a Dole Whip at Disney World you need to know where to go, because there are no signs or large billboards proclaiming that “Dole Whips are sold here” or “This way to the Dole Whips.”
There are two locations on the Disney World property where you can purchase a Dole Whip.
The Aloha Isle is a small unassuming place nestled near the entrance to Adventureland. The Dole Whip doesn’t even get top billing on the menu board, but it is certainly what people come for.
You can even purchase this snack above all snacks for only 1 Disney Dining Plan Snack credit.
The most dangerous part of the Dole Whip is the effect it has on you when you are home, hundreds or perhaps even thousands of miles from Disney World. This is when the craving hits and you find yourself longing for its pineapple goodness.
For the true fans there is some relief. You are able to now purchase the same dry mix that Disney World (and Disneyland) uses to make your own Dole Whips if you have a home ice cream machine. The company is Unified Enterprises Corp. and they are based in Hawaii. If you visit their website you can order the dry mix and have it shipped to your home. The shipping is not cheap, but some cravings will just not be tamed.
