Welcome to MUNCHY MONDAY, our new weekly installment of the blog focusing on all things delicious at Walt Disney World!
Food is everywhere at Disney World. There are restaurants ranging from the elite Victoria & Albert’s at The Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, to casual themed dining such as the Prime Time Cafe at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. There are Quick Service options at all resort hotels and theme parks – where you can find sandwiches, salads, burgers, tacos, and barbeque, just to name a few. Snack carts offer choices such as ice cream, popcorn, and roasted nuts. There are coffees, wines, beers, specialty cocktails, milkshakes, and even Doofenslurpers (a sweet, slushy drink inspired by the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz from Phineas & Ferb)!
So as is our goal, we want to help you know before you go. With so many appetizing options to indulge your palette with, MUNCHY MONDAY will help you know what food options are out there, so you can make sure to eat exactly what your mouth desires.
We’re going to kick off MUNCHY MONDAY with what we consider to be the holy grail of snacks: Pineapple Dole Whip!!! And we are not alone. This tasty treat has long been a favorite among Walt Disney World guests, and has recently been featured on t-shirts available at WDW.
Pineapple Dole Whip: Soft Serve ice cream infused with Dole pineapple juice. Amazing. This delectable Dole Pineapple Soft Serve can be purchased on its own (how we like it!) or layered with a refreshing serving of pineapple juice, as seen to the right. Eat and sip!
Now that we’ve peaked your interest, here’s how to get your own Pineapple Dole Whip:
- Go to Magic Kingdom.
- Head to Adventureland.
- Locate Aloha Isle – across from the entrance to Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse and get in line.
- Eat Dole Whip before it melts!
- Pause and enjoy that tropical flavored satisfaction after polishing off every last drop.
If pineapple alone doesn’t thrill you, you can try vanilla or orange Dole Whip Soft Serve, or swirl one of those flavors with the pineapple! Pineapple Dole Whip is only available at two locations in Walt Disney World: Aloha Isle in the Magic Kingdom and Cook’s Kitchen at Disney’s Polynesian. Aloha Isle offers pineapple spears, pineapple juice, coke and root beer floats, chips, and other beverage options in addition to the soft serve. Its location in the Magic Kingdom makes it the most practical way for most guests to get their fix.
For us, no trip to WDW is complete until Pineapple Dole Whip is consumed. At least once. Or twice… Or as many times as we can justify eating soft serve. Hey, it counts as a fruit serving, right?!?
