News: Vanilla Dole Whip Is BACK at Magic Kingdom’s Aloha Isle

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! [Read more…]

New at Magic Kingdom: Cheshire Cat Tails, Frusta, and Much More!

We’ve been spending a lot of time — like, A LOT — at Animal Kingdom lately. No real surprise there, as it’s home to the brand new land, Pandora — The World of AVATAR. But while entire new lands are always the biggest news, that doesn’t mean things aren’t happening all over the World.
