Where to Find Dole Whip at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Parks
updated 3/22/15 – Aloha Isle has switched places with Sunshine Tree Terrace (both are still located in Adventureland)
If you are new to Disney Parks, you may not have heard of Dole Whip before now. OR maybe you have heard of Dole Whip and think to yourself, “Why is everyone always talking about Dole Whip? What is the big deal with Dole Whip? What IS Dole Whip?” I was you once, too. And then it happened.
In 2010, my husband and I booked our third family trip to Walt Disney World. For this vacation, we wanted to up the ante, so we booked our first deluxe resort at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. We soon figured out that the Polynesian Resort had more in store for us than its beautiful palm trees, sparkling pool, and relaxing Hawaiian music. Yes, indeed, there was definitely something extra special about this resort. Something amazing. Something called “Dole Whip”. In fact, there was a self-serve Dole Whip machine right inside the Polynesian Resort. Our lives were changed forever.
What is Dole Whip?
Dole Whip is a non-dairy soft-serve frozen dessert made from puree and reconstituted with water, then frozen before serving. Dole Whip is available in three flavors – pineapple, orange, and vanilla – but pineapple definitely gets the most attention and is considered the original flavor. (and my personal favorite!) Dole Whip can also be combined with pineapple juice to create the most delicious float in the world. (in my opinion!)
Where to Find Dole Whip at Walt Disney World Parks
- Captain Cook’s – Located in Disney’s Polynesian Resort, Captain Cook’s offers a self-serve Dole Whip machine! Oh yeahhhhhh…
- Aloha Isle – Located in Adventureland in Magic Kingdom Park, Aloha Isle offers Dole Whip in pineapple, orange, vanilla or swirled. You can also get your favorite Dole Whip float style with pineapple juice.
Where to Find Dole Whip at Disneyland Parks
- Tiki Juice Bar – Located in Disneyland Park, Tiki Juice Bar offers pineapple-flavored Dole Whip and Dole Whip Floats, and even includes a fancy cherry and umbrella!
NOTE: During the International Garden and Flower Festival and Food and Wine Festival, various other Dole Whip Floats (some with rum, even!) may be available in Epcot and Animal Kingdom, too.

That is my all-time favorite Disney treat. I even made a homemade version with the same mix they use and it tastes pretty darn close. http://foodfamilyfinds.com/copycat-recipe-dole-whip-float-from-disney-worlds-aloha-isle-snack-hut/
Very awesome, Cat! Thanks for sharing!
Never heard of it, but it looks delicious!
Next time you visit WDW or DL, get one! (now that you know where to find them!)
That looks and sounds delicious! One day, we’ll make the trip and get to try it ourselves.
On a really hot day at the parks, a Dole Whip is the absolute perfect way to cool off!
