We’re at Disney World every single day, and well, we’ve seen some things…
We’ve been hard at work scoping out all the latest news for you this week. Today we have all the details on what’s happening that affects the Disney Parks, hotels, and MORE!
See all of our coverage on Disney park closures and reopenings HERE. We still have a LOT to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in… .
We’ve been baking up a Disney recipe storm in our kitchens (and eating too many sweets while we’re at it, tbh).
Although we’ve made some pretty epic Disney breakfasts on top of recreating churros from the parks and the Carrot Cake Cookies from the Writer’s Stop, we’re missing our DFB snack crawls in Disney World. While we’re daydreaming about the parks’ reopening, we’re challenging YOU (yeah you…in the stretchy pants) to conquer these giant snack challenges once Disney World welcomes guests again!
We’ve seen Dole Whip donuts and Dole Whip with rum recently, but now it’s finally time for a new Dole Whip Cupcake!
This fun treat comes with sweet sauce in a pipette that you squeeze over the top of the cupcake. @belleoftheparks reports this tastes exactly like a Dole Whip!
Looks like the pipettes might become our next trend at Disney! This is our second pipette finding in the past few weeks — remember those Boozy Beignets at Scat Cats Lounge in Port Orleans French Quarter Resort!
Have you tried this cupcake? What do you think of the possible pipette trend? Share your comments below!

Happy New Year, DFB Friends!
Let’s face it: 2016 handed us some real bummers. But there were some good things that happened, too. And that’s especially true where Disney Food is concerned.
Today as we gather our noisemakers, funny hats, and bubbly to ring in the New Year, let’s take a few minutes to review some of the biggest Disney Food News Stories of 2016.
Are you with me? Let’s go! [Read more…]
Tamu Tamu Refreshments in Animal Kingdom’s Africa offers two things: Cold Drinks!
And Good Eats!
Well, things are about to get a little colder and good…er (?!?). Because starting THIS WEEKEND, Tamu Tamu Refreshments is serving up DOLE WHIPS!!
DOLE WHIPS AT ANIMAL KINGDOM?! WHAAAAAAAAAT?!?
That’s right, friends… you read correctly. Just as Dole Whips have departed the Pineapple Promenade at Epcot with the ending of this year’s Flower & Garden Festival, they’re making their arrival at Tamu Tamu Refreshments!
Here’s the scoop! No floats here, a la Aloha Isle – the ultimate Dole Whip location. BUT you will have the option to spike your Dole Whip with alcohol (if you’re 21-or-over, of course)!
Choices are the same as at the 2014 Flower & Garden Festival’s Pineapple Promenade booth: dark rum or coconut rum.
Based on the prices, we’re thinking sizes will be similar to the [Read more…]
So, you’re in Disney World, but for whatever reason, you don’t want to use a park ticket that morning/night/afternoon/arrival day/leaving day. No problemo!!
You can still cross some of the best Disney snacks off your must-eat list…even without scanning a single ticket/magicband/key to the World card!
Everyone knows that you can get a Mickey Bar all over the place in Disney World (you DID know that, right?), but we’ve got a few more must-try eats to share with you today! Time to check out our 5 Must Eat Disney Snacks You Can Get Without a Park Ticket!
UPDATE: Dole Whip is no longer being served at Captain Cook’s, is no longer self-serve, and is no longer available 24 hours a day. BUT — you still can get it outside of the Parks. You’ll now find Dole Whip at the Pineapple Lanai in Disney’s Polynesian Village. You can also get a Dole Whip Float at Pineapple Lanai!
Let’s start with the granddaddy of them all, the Big Kahuna of Disney Must Have Treats, the stuff that legends and t shirts are made of. Ladies and gentleman, we are talking about the Dole Whip here, of course.
This frosty, delicious treat has a bona fide cult following that has blown up and taken over mainstream! You simply cannot visit Disney without having one, whether it’s a float (my favorite!) or a cup.
The pineapple soft serve, which is both vegan and gluten-free, is the perfect refreshing dessert on a sunshiny day!
Even though there are few things that say “I’m at Disney right now!!!!!!” more loud and proud than strolling through Magic Kingdom, Dole Whip Float from Aloha Isle in hand, it’s great to know that you don’t ever have to head into the parks to score one of these babies!
If you’re craving some of that tropical goodness and you aren’t on park time, just head over to Captain Cook’s Snack Company at Disney’s Polynesian Resort to get your fix! The Poly’s counter service spot is not only home to some deee-licious fast fare, but they also have Dole Whip machines that pump out the yum dessert.
And here’s a BIG OL’ TIP: You can get a Dole Whip here all day…and all night!! long. 😀 Note, they DO shut down the machine for, like, one hour each night to clean it (believe me, I’ve been disappointed during that one hour before); so just avoid the 3AM Dole Whip craving and you’re good to go.
Ah, Zebra Domes. How (much) do I love thee? Enough to truck all the way over to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge regardless of where I’m staying, that’s how much.
These little half-spheres first called to us from the buffet of Boma, one of Animal Kingdom Lodge’s most celebrated table service restaurants. Sure, we love Boma for their exotic dinner fare (those soups!), their carved meats and interesting condiments, and their delicious breakfast spread. But one thing’s for sure: a trip here must end with at least one Zebra Dome.
The creamy, rich mousse domes taste like nothing you’ve ever had. That’s because the secret special ingredient is [Read more…]
With multiple trips to Walt Disney World in recent weeks, I had lots of new stuff to check out. But even while trying the new Pork Shank, Croque Monsieur, and new cupcakes in the Magic Kingdom, I knew I had to make room for a classic!
And really…is there a better way to start out a brand new year than with a Dole Whip?
The float version of the treat with pineapple soft serve and pineapple juice honestly has been one of my favorite treats since I started visiting Disney World as a kid!
You’ll find the refreshing treat at Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland, at the former Sunshine Tree Terrace (Aloha Isle and Sunshine Tree Terrace changed spots).
You can get the pineapple soft serve straight up, or get it in a float. To make the float, cast members start with
Recently we polled our Disney Food Blog Facebook Page for their answer to this question: “What are your favorite icy cold snacks and treats in Disney parks?”
UPDATE: Dole Whip is no longer being served at Captain Cook’s, is no longer self-serve, and is no longer available 24 hours a day. You’ll now find Dole Whip at the Pineapple Lanai in Disney’s Polynesian Village in addition to Aloha Isle at the Magic Kingdom. You can also find Dole Whip available intermittently at Animal Kingdom’s Tamu Tamu Refreshments, and at Epcot during some special events. On the upside, you can also get a Dole Whip Float at Pineapple Lanai!
We heard your your 34 shout-outs (!!!) to the Dole Whip. Not surprisingly, this palate-pleasing treat was the clear winner!
The Dole Whip’s popularity may be partly due to the many versions offered. First, there’s Dole Whip soft-serve in vanilla, pineapple and orange. Guests can further customize their dish by ordering a swirl. Or opt for the [Read more…]
