Pineapple Dole Whips have become an icon of a Disney Vacation. This famous snack option is a soft-serve, non-dairy, gluten and vegan work of editable art! So unless you are allergic to pineapple this is a snack you can have! While I would love to claim Disney is responsible for the creation of the Dole Whip its origins actually are from the Dole company. You can visit the Dole Plantation in Hawaii and enjoy the same treat you find at Disney theme parks.
Where to Find a Dole Whip at Disney World
There are a few locations you can pick up this delicious treat! The Magic Kingdom serves up Dole Whips at Aloha Island which is tucked back in Adventureland next to the Enchanted Tiki Room. At the Polynesian Village Resort you can get your fix at their outdoor Pineapple Lanai, located right outside of the lobby. If you are spending the day at Animal Kingdom you can pick up a Dole Whip at Tamu Tamu Refreshments, they even have the option to add some rum in! At Epcot you can find Dole Whips during the festival times, typically at the Refreshment Port just before Canada.
Dole Whip Recipes
Why wait until your next Disney vacation when you can make your own Dole Whip at your home! There are a few ways you can bring Dole Whip into your own home. We have a high-tech method, this is going to get you the closest to the real deal well because you are buying the actual mix that Disney uses! The catch is it requires a soft serve ice cream machine to make.
If you want to take your Dole Whip to the next level there is a new topping that is taking the world by storm. It’s called Tajin, a fruit seasoning made with ground chili peppers, salt, and dehydrated lime juice. It’s somewhat of a hack since it’s not served this way by Disney but instead you can find these seasoning packets at a snack bar near where Dole Whips are served in Adventureland at Disneyland.
Real Deal Dole Whip Recipe
For a 2 quart batch, mix 10 ounces dry mix with 18 ounces cold water. Stir the two until dissolved. Next add another 18 ounces cold water and stir for 30 seconds. Immediately pour into soft serve ice cream maker and turn the machine on. In 20 to 25 minutes your Dole Whip is ready to enjoy.

I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
