Although Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort won’t be reopening until next year, Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows are currently open, as are several of the restaurants at the Polynesian.
If you’re looking for a spot to grab a Dole Whip outside of the parks, you’ve got a couple of options — one of which is Pineapple Lanai at the Polynesian. If you walk through the lobby to the outside area in the back, you’ll find this spot.
There, you can enjoy some classic Dole whips, as well as some unique Dole whip flavors and Dole whip floats. We’ve spotted lots of different Dole whip items at this spot in the past. Today, we found the Firecracker Dole Whip float there. The float is made of Dole Whip Pineapple Soft Serve with Coconut Rum, Tropical Juices, and Popping Candy.
YUM! Ours didn’t have a huge amount of popping candy, which was okay by us. If you aren’t a big fan of that type of candy, don’t shy away from this float just because of it. Because there was only a small amount on there, we didn’t really have a problem with it at all. It added a nice texture difference and a bit of fun, but wasn’t overwhelming. It reminded us a lot of the Blue Hawaiian Float that had Lime Dole Whip and popping candy.

They served us the rum separately so we could pour it in ourselves.
As always, the Dole Whip Soft Serve was light and refreshing. The combination of flavors with the rum and juices and Dole whip all mixed together was really nice! Even if you aren’t a big fan of blue curaçao, you still may really enjoy the flavors of the treat as a whole. It was sweet, but very good!
You can get this float at Pineapple Lanai for $13.
