UPDATE: Dole Whip is no longer being served at Captain Cook’s, is no longer self-serve, and is no longer available 24 hours a day. You’ll now find Dole Whip at the Pineapple Lanai in Disney’s Polynesian Village in addition to Aloha Isle at the Magic Kingdom. You can also find Dole Whip available intermittently at Animal Kingdom’s Tamu Tamu Refreshments, and at Epcot during some special events. On the upside, you can also get a Dole Whip Float at Pineapple Lanai!
Here’s the scenario: Wishes just ended. Everyone’s streaming out of the parks. The line at the Plaza Ice Cream parlor is a million miles long. You’re starving.
I have the answer!
This gem of the Polynesian Resort, right across Seven Seas Lagoon from the Magic Kingdom, has a surprising array of delicious options for munching — even later at night. Just grab the boat or the resort monorail from the Magic Kingdom over to the Polynesian and head to this little counter service spot located right next to the Volcano Pool and the Polynesian beach.
Once you get inside, head over to one of the fancy-schmancy little ordering screens to choose your poison (I have heard great things about the Grown-Up Grilled Cheese!!):
Of course, if the TV screens don’t have anything you want to try, head over to the bakery area…
…or to the refrigerator section for some sushi…
…or get yourself a DOLE WHIP!!!
Once you have your snack of choice, find a nice, quiet spot on the beach and watch the Electric Water Pageant….or just relax in a hammock while the rest of the World scurries around you. It’s a nice way to end a Disney day.
