A Dole Whip from Aloha Isle is a great snack to recharge your batteries as you make your way through the Magic Kingdom. You won’t be disappointed. It is the best of both worlds good for you and delicious.



Mrs. Mom and I couldn’t wait to try a Dole Whip. In fact we (Dad that is) stood in line for almost an hour just to taste one. Yep, it was worth the wait.

About the Aloha Isle

Some of you might be wondering what a Dole Whip is. Here is a good description a mix of pineapple soft serve and pineapple juice. It is really really good on a hot day. The Dole Whip comes in 3 flavors: Pineapple, vanilla, or orange.

You can mix any of the flavors with vanilla or chocolate soft serve. This may not be the best place to stop and grab a drink while walking in the Magic Kingdom. Lines get pretty long.

This year Aloha Isle moved. It traded places with Sunshine Tree Terrace so Disney could do some work on the old Adventureland Veranda.

It’s now located in Adventureland near the Enchanted Tiki Room. Grab your favorite snack and then go see the Tiki’s at work. It is open from 11:00 a.m. until 7 p.m.

This was originally opened in 1972 as Veranda Juice Bar. The juice bar was part of the Adventureland Veranda restaurant. In 1977 through 1981 Kikkoman was the sponsor. Not really sure why a Japanese soy sauce was the sponsor but who knows. Then in 1981 Dole took over sponsorship and Aloha Isle was finally born.


In 2015 Aloha Isle and Sunshine Tree Terrace traded places to allow for the reopening of a restaurant at Adventureland Verdanda.

Not Just at the Aloha Isle

Dole whips are so popular that Disney has expanded the locations where you can find them. You can now get a Dole Whip at the Polynesian Resort and in the Animal Kingdom. Pineapple Lanai was built at the Polynesian Village Resort just to serve Dole Whips. Tamu Tamu at Animal Kingdom also serves them.


Dole Whips have also been seen at the Food and Wine Festival.

Dad’s Bottom Line

A few years ago, we visited the Dole Plantation in Hawaii and tried pineapple ice cream for the first time. It was amazing, so we couldn’t wait to try a Dole Whip. What a treat. Maybe not as good as the stuff on the plantation, but it’s still a special treat. Try one out. Trust me.
