Orlando: Aloha Isle Refreshments @ Magic Kingdom

During our first leg of our honeymoon, we visited the Magic Kingdom since we've never been there before and I always wanted to go there when I was a little girl. I was a little annoyed that I had to hunt down my fav Disney snacks all over the park. For example, If I wanted a frozen lemonade, we had to walk all the way to Toon Town to get it. All of that walking just makes you thirsty.

In Adventureland, there is a little refreshment stand called Aloha Isle Refreshments. They serve Dole Whips (soft-serve ice cream) and Dole Whip Floats which is pineapple juice topped with pineapple soft-serve ice cream. YUM MO! The float is a refreshing drink to beat the Florida heat, especially after walking the park for several hours. If pineapples are not your thing, the soft-serve ice cream also comes in other flavors such as orange, vanilla, chocolate and swirl.

Apparently, Dole Whip is available at individual ice cream parlors across the U.S. most notably at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Dole Plantation in Hawaii, and Ala Moana Center Food Center to name a few. If you ever come across signage for "Dole Whip", it's a must have and well worth the wait in line.

Where to find Dole Whip (in Hawaii and the West Coast):
  • Dole Plantation, Oahu
  • Ala Moana Center, Honolulu: Food court
  • Magic Kingdom: Aloha Isle Refreshments, Adventureland
  • Disney Polynesian Resort, Orlando
  • Disneyland: Tiki Juice Bar at Adventureland
  • Lappert's Ice Cream: Hawaii, San Diego (I'm not sure if the other Mainland locations carry Dole Whip)
  • Tutu's Hawaiian Ice Cream Shack, Simi Valley, Ca
  • Great America, Santa Clara, Ca
Rather make it yourself, here's a video:
