Why We Love the Dole Whip & Where to Find it at Walt Disney World

The Dole Whip is one of the most popular treats at Walt Disney World. You may not know what we are even talking about, but we are going to tell you exactly what it is, why we love it, and where you can find yours at Walt Disney World:


What is the Dole Whip?:

The Dole Whip is a non-dairy pineapple frozen soft-serve treat. It is served in a cup and can also be served as the Vanilla Dole Whip or the Dole Whip swirl with pineapple and vanilla. There is also the float, which many guests refer to as the Dole Whip float. This is your choice of soft serve with pineapple juice over it. Some locations will also feature alcoholic versions where you can get the soft serve with different types of alcohol poured over the top or blended with it.

Why we love the Dole Whip:

The Dole Whip has become an iconic staple at Walt Disney World. It is extremely refreshing and light compared to many of the treats and snacks in the park. On a hot Florida day, it is a treat that will cool you off and leave you feeling more refreshed. It is eligible as a snack credit for guests on the Disney Dining Plan (not applicable for the alcoholic versions), too. It used to only be offered at one location but has become so popular that Walt Disney World spread it around to other locations all over WDW to help ensure that all guests can enjoy this fan-favorite treat. If you haven’t had one, then you absolutely have to give it a try!

Where to find the Dole Whip at Walt Disney World:

1 – Aloha Isle – Adventureland, Magic Kingdom

This is the classic Dole Whip location at Walt Disney World and used to be the only location where you could find this delicious treat. You won’t find any alcoholic versions at this location since it is in the Magic Kingdom, but you will find the Dole Whip and Dole Whip float varieties.

2 – Marketplace Snacks – Marketplace, Disney Springs

This location offers the Dole Whip soft serve options as well as the Dole Whip float. It is definitely a great way to cool down in Disney Springs.

3 – Tamu Tamu – Africa, Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Not only does this location offer the Dole Whip, but it also offers a version where you can enjoy your favorite Dole Whip with a short of dark rum or coconut rum. I don’t know if it gets any better than that!

4 – Pineapple Lanai – Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

It makes complete sense that this delicious pineapple treat would be available the Polynesian. The soft-serve Dole Whip options are available in a cup or in a souvenir tiki bowl (for an added charge). You can also get the Dole Whip Float in all flavors or in a souvenir tiki cup (for an added charge). For those of you looking for an alcoholic option, you can check out the Captain’s Pineapple, which includes Captain Morgan spiced rum blended with pineapple soft-serve.


5 – Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto – Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

Check out this lounge area for another great adult beverage option. The Spiky Pineapple is available and is made of a blend of soft pineapple serve and Barbancourt Pango Rum for the perfect drink to enjoy the tropical surroundings of the resort.

6 – The Drop Off – Disney’s Art of Animation Resort

The Drop Off is located close to the Big Blue Pool at the resort, and it is also offering the Captain’s Pineapple, the same drink that can also be found at the Polynesian.

7 – Pineapple Promenade – International Flower & Garden Festival, Epcot

Guests will be able to find the Dole Whip soft serve available along with a version of the Pineapple Float that includes Parrot Bay Coconut Rum.

8 – Everything POP Shopping & Dining – Disney’s Pop Century Resort

Over a Pop Century, guests can enjoy the Dole Whip soft serve options. There is also now a version that includes Captain Morgan rum for the adults out there.

Bonus: Sunshine Tree Terrace

While not the traditional pineapple flavor you may be used to, Sunshine Tree Terrace serves “Dole Whip Orange.” This creamy orange-flavored Dole Whip is another fan favorite. I absolutely love the Orange Cream (Dole Whip Orange and vanilla swirl)!

Christy Caby

Hi! I’m Christy, and I am a wife and mother of 2 young boys (ages 5 and 2). I first fell in love with Disney when my mom took me when I was a child. After that I proceeded to go to WDW for my senior trip with my friends, and I completed a year in the Disney College Program (working in merchandise at Mickey’s of Hollywood at Disney’s Hollywood Studios). I shared my love of Disney with my now husband and sucked him in. He proposed at Disney, we honeymooned at Disney, we started bringing our boys before they were born and then as early as 8 weeks old. We then continued to vacation to Walt Disney World 2-3 times per year. We decided that what makes more sense than just moving to Orlando so that we could live the Disney life and be here for all of our favorite events and seasons every year. That is exactly what we did! Now we are at the parks a couple times a week and go for most events and major holidays. We can’t get enough and get to experience Disney in a whole different way. I love to share this love and passion for all things Disney with the world and hope that I can help others appreciate the magic that Walt Disney World has to offer!
