You know we LOVE our Dole Whip Floats from Magic Kingdom’s Aloha Isle. We’ve tried them all, from the Spiked Dole Whip Float to Redd’s Revenge. So we were excited (but a little trepidatious) to see a merry, limited-edition float added to the menu for this year’s holiday season.
The Cherry and Pistachio Float really stood out to us when we first saw the photos and we couldn’t wait to give it a try!
This one consists of cherry and pistachio swirled soft-serve atop frozen hot chocolate, and it’s totally Insta-worthy for its bold soft-serve color combo. The cherry soft serve in particular is super saturated.
And that cherry flavor is just as saturated as its color! The cherry is SUPER strong. So much so that the pistachio sadly kind of gets lost. The combo with the frozen hot chocolate is a good option if you like sweet-sour treats — that strong artificial cherry flavor with the hot chocolate gives almost a chocolate-covered cherry or strawberry feel.
But we really do wish more of the pistachio came through in this treat. It would be a good, sweet balance for the strong cherry and also compliment the hot chocolate.
So, for us, it wasn’t really a home run. But we look forward to hearing what YOU think! You can try out this holiday-ready treat for yourself or $5.99 or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit at Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom
