The Great Dole Whip Hunt: Where to find Disney’s best frozen treat

If you haven’t had Dole Whip, Disney’s famed pineapple soft serve, I’m not surprised. It’s hard to find and definitely not widely publicized. That’s because they don’t have to talk about it. The elusive frozen treat has a rabid cult following, inspiring countless knock-off recipes all over the internet. (Spoiler alert: none of them actually taste like the real thing.)

Technically speaking, Dole Whip comes in two flavors: pineapple and vanilla. But for my purposes, pineapple Dole Whip is the only Dole Whip. Before you ask, yes, it’s that good. Here’s where to find it.

Walt Disney World

In Magic Kingdom, at Aloha Isle, by Aladdin’s Flying Carpets and the Enchanted Tiki Room in Adventureland.

In Animal Kingdom, at Tamu Tamu Refreshments by The Festival of the Lion King in Africa. (Bonus – you can get it spiked with dark or coconut rum!)

Outside the parks: At Disney’s Polynesian Resort, at the outdoor Pineapple Lanai and at Captain Cook’s, the quick service restaurant on the property. At Pop Century, in the quick service cafeteria. And in Disney Springs at Marketplace Snacks.

During Epcot’s Food & Wine and Flower & Garden festivals, Dole Whip is available at some kiosks, like Pineapple Promenade.

Disneyland

In Disneyland park, at the Tiki Juice Bar next to the Enchanted Tiki Room in Adventureland.

At the Disneyland Hotel Coffee Shop, by the pool at Disneyland Hotel. (Also available with rum. Don’t think. Just do it.)
