Why was this not a thing before?? After the Matterhorn Macaroon Donut I figured the “Dole Whip Donut” wouldn’t be far behind, but it’s taken a while. Still, happy to say…it’s finally here at the Disneyland Donut Cart!
This popped up at the Donut Cart, which can be found at the end of Main Street next to Sleeping Beauty Castle, yesterday, and it’s getting super popular!
The filled donut has pineapple flavored icing on top, along with a swirl of marshmallow-y meringue.
Inside is pineapple flavored filling with real bits of pineapple.
Note that a spokesperson for Disney has shared with me that this is not a “Dole Whip Donut,” but instead is a “Pineapple Donut with Meringue.” However, with the flavor profile, that little swirl of meringue, and the characteristic umbrella on top, this one at least seems Dole Whip-inspired to us.
Whatever they’re calling it, this donut is a must-do if you’re a Dole Whip fan. But remember, the donut cart varieties change out regularly — sometimes daily — so you may not find this version there when you are! This one will be available until Friday, April 20th!
