WHOA!!! Do I ever owe DFB Reader Lauren F. a HUGE thank you!
She informed us of some VERY good news… she JUST got a Pineapple and Vanilla Dole Whip SWIRL from Aloha Isle!!!
You may recall when Aloha Isle and Sunshine Tree Terrace switched locations in Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland well over two years ago. But the locations weren’t the only thing that changed at the time: there was a change to the Aloha Isle menu, too. The option to swirl your Pineapple Dole Whip with Orange (or order Orange on its own) was removed from the menu.
In fact, the only flavor on the menu at all was simply Pineapple. And even though Pineapple Dole Whip — often referred to as Pineapple Soft Serve — has been popping up in various locations around Disney World (like the latest beverages at All Star Resort bars, for instance), the only place you have been able to swirl flavors since the location change was the Polynesian’s Pineapple Lanai.
We happily confirmed Lauren’s findings with a visit to the Disney World’s website where Vanilla does, indeed, appear on the Aloha Isle menu!
Yes, the Vanilla is listed as its own item, but Lauren informed us she was able to swirl flavors 🙂 . Hooray!!
Now, if I am being 100% honest, my personal preference lies with the old Pineapple and Orange combo that used to exist here, and I would love to see it come back. Still, if you’ve never tried it since it’s been harder to find, the Vanilla really is a wonderful complement to the Pineapple, mellowing out all that acid a bit and offering a bit more flavor variety. So, I’m very much PRO this option, too!
Thank you again, Lauren, for sharing the terrific news with us!
So… are you ready to swirl your Dole Whip once more at Aloha Isle? Please let us know with a comment!
