Disneylicious Dole Whips


Greetings Everybody! It’s time for Focused on the Magic's Foodie Friday Fare.

Maybe it’s just because I’m on a diet right now... Dreaming about delicious Disney desserts is calorie free and eating them is reserved for park visits so I haven't broken any diet rules yet:D 
Dole Whips are the #1 topic that people ask me about so even though I've mentioned it before I'm just going to have to say it again...

Dole Whips are one of my favorite snacks in Walt Disney World and my favorite snack location to get one is in Adventureland's The Aloha Isle. This little kiosk in the mist of the Tiki Gods and next to the The Tiki Room offers up sweet, tropical treats and cool refreshments! However, for many Disney fans, Aloha Isle is not just a quick spot to grab a tasty treat, it is home to one of Disney World's most famous snacks: the Dole Whip!

So what exactly is this infamous dessert that everyone is talking about you ask? A Dole Whip is pineapple flavored soft-serve dessert served in a cup. Made with fresh pineapple and assorted reconstituted ingredients that melt in your mouth. The best part for DS is that they are lactose freeThere are a few ways to enjoy a Dole Whip. I like my Dole Whip served straight up in a cup. My DH likes a swirl of pineapple and vanilla in a cup. DSs enjoy a Dole Whip float, which is served in pineapple juices! No matter how they serve it though I've always enjoyed it. Just don't take too long taking a picture of it:)

Aloha Isle also offers other items. You can enjoy orange or vanilla flavored soft serve, Coke or Root Beer floats, pineapple spears, soft drinks, fruit juices, and even hot drinks! This quick snack kiosk has outdoor tables and chairs or you can take your treats and sit by the Jungle Cruise wall and people watch. A fun way to take a refreshing break from hustle and bustle of the Magic Kingdom.

There's another reason I enjoy having a Dole Whip at The Aloha Isle. I like to "pay one forward" for Bawb each trip. By that I mean, I buy one for myself and one for a customer waiting in line. It started In May of 2008 when I attended a memorial/meet for the late Bob Varley  a wonderfully funny witty DIS moderator and DISUnplugged Podcaster. At the memorial we were all talking about Bobs love of Dole Whips and how some DISers (I won't mention who;) weren't big fans of the tasty treat. Someone suggested buying one for someone else in Bob's memory as a sort of "pay it forward" gesture. That night I went to the MK and had a Dole Whip in his honor and bought a Dole Whip for someone on line with me. It felt good and I think Bob would've enjoyed it. If you should decide to try it, take a picture of your Dole Whip and post it on the DISboards thread, A Dole Whip for BawbIt's one way of remembering and paying tribute to a great guy who is sorely missed.
