Welcome to our tropical hideaway!!
We’re bringing you the latest of What’s New at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! We’ll cover construction updates, a colorful new donut and a bunch of new merchandise.
Let’s dive right in!
Do you collect Pandora charms to remember your Disney vacations?
Well, then you have to see the enchanting new Tiki Room Pandora charm that we just spotted at Uptown Jewelers in Magic Kingdom!
There’s always something new happening at Walt Disney World‘s Magic Kingdom! Even though we were last in the park less than a week ago, there was still plenty of newness for us to discover.
Come along and take a look at everything new we encountered this week!
Recently, I stopped by Disney Springs on a little gift-buying errand. While the item I was after was located at the World of Disney store, I popped in the Marketplace Co-op to see what was new (or, rather, new to me, since it had been some time since my last visit).
Immediately I knew it was a bad decision… for my wallet. Because this retail center (which is known as a test location for tons of Disney merch, with a lot of it eventually making its way into the parks) always has some seriously cool stuff tucked inside its individual shops. Take, for instance, the place we’re starting: Twenty Eight & Main. [Read more…]

“Welcome to our tropical hideaway
You lucky people, you!
If we weren’t in the show starting right away,
We’d be EATING DOLE WHIPS with you!”
Not anymore! Disney World guests are now allowed to bring their Dole Whips from Aloha Isle into the neighboring Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room to enjoy while listening to all the birdies sing. [Read more…]
Indulge me for a moment as we head over to Disneyland and talk Dole Whips. The refreshing, mysteriously creamy frozen pineapple soft serve is one of the treats that I enjoy at some point during every single trip to Disney, regardless of which coast I happen to be visiting.
But there’s just something even more special about it when you can score your Dole Whip fix from the Tiki Juice Bar in Disneyland.
I mean, there’s no “original” here. Dole’s partnership started with Disney after both Disneyland and Magic Kingdom were opened, and I remember the Dole logo from my earliest trips to Disney World, too.
Still, with the Tiki Juice Bar as a fixture and the fact that it’s actually part of the Enchanted Tiki Room Attraction — the original tie-in for the Disney-Dole partnership — how could you go wrong?
And if you haven’t had the pleasure of a Disneyland Dole Whip, you’re in for another surprise. Let’s take a look!
The Tiki Juice Bar is an open-air, counter service kiosk, located adjacent to the Enchanted Tiki Room in Disneyland’s Adventureland. In fact, it’s part of the the Tiki Room’s pre-show. That’s one of my favorite parts of visiting!
And there are some seriously fun touches here. This tiki helps to hold up the corner of the hut, fittingly. I love the little tiny guy, don’t you?
Look around, and you see lots of ways that the Dole logo and name are worked into the decor. This bamboo-framed print of a [Read more…]
Recently I had the pleasure of attending Dole’s Banana Summit at the Disneyland Resort. And while we’ll go bananas a bit later, it’s Disneyland and Dole’s partnership on the pineapple front (Dole Whip anyone?) that I think you guys are going to love hearing about.
After all, Dole is the official sponsor of perhaps the most iconic attraction and snack of the Disneyland (and Disney World!) Resort. What better place to learn about this partnership than the Enchanted Tiki Room with a Dole Whip in hand?
While indulging in pineapple fantasticness, our group was escorted into an empty Tiki Room for a presentation [Read more…]
