History of Aloha Isle
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.
