I have to give a special shout out to Briana Alessio who is my special guest writer today! She is an awesome gal, and I can’t thank her enough for her post!!!
The Dole Whip. Just saying it brings a smile to the face of many. Whether you are a fan of fruit or not, this is definitely worth a try. Located in The Walt Disney World Resort, you can get one at either Captain Cook’s at the Polynesian Resort or at the Magic Kingdom’s Aloha Isle in Adventureland.
Aloha Isle’s menu of assorted Dole Whip treats consists of two different treats: The Dole Whip Soft Serve in pineapple, vanilla, orange, or swirl ice cream for $3.49, or the Pineapple Float which is a pineapple Dole Whip served with pineapple juice for $4.49. Aloha Isle also offers a Coca Cola or Barq’s Root Beer Float served with vanilla Dole Whip for $4.19. They also have various other beverages and a couple of additional snack offers. (Note: The Magic Kingdom does not serve alcohol so you will not find any here or anywhere throughout the park.)
Captain Cook’s is a 24 hour eatery located inside on the 1st floor of the Polynesian Resort. They offer breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and snacks in portions for both adults and children. (For a lunch or dinner recommendation, a few friends of mine highly suggest trying the Adult Grilled Cheese Sandwich. Using a mix of cheddar, blue, and Swiss cheeses along with frisee and tomato, this is served on sunflower multigrain bread with specialty Poly chips. All for $7.99!). When I get distracted discussing food, I lose train of thought…right, the Dole Whip! Captain Cook’s offers a Dole Whip self-serve machine which you can access at any hour of the night. I, along with a few great friends, went there at midnight last year and had a Dole Whip party. Even at small places like these, you can have memories which will last a lifetime!!
Personally, I think they are super fantastic. My first one was this past October. I tried the soft serve pineapple from Aloha Isle with my friends James and Tammy. I devoured the whole thing in about five minutes flat. I had the next one the day after that at Captain Cook’s, where I made myself a soft serve swirl. I cannot decide which one I enjoyed more!! It is seriously the best frozen treat which I, and many others, have ever had.
I cannot wait to return in May to have one again!!! Or two. Or three. Or….Follow us for more updates:
