Where to Find Dole Whip

At Walt Disney World in Florida, Dole Whip can be found inside Magic Kingdom at Aloha Isle in Adventureland. If you are outside the parks, don’t worry, you can head to Pineapple Lanai at Disney’s Polynesian Resort for this delicious frozen treat.

At the Disneyland Resort in California, experience this magical treat at the Tiki Juice Bar or Tropical Hideaway in Adventureland inside Disneyland Park. You can also visit Tangaroa Terrace or Trader Sam’s at the Disneyland Hotel.

If embarking on a Disney Cruise, you can purchase an alcoholic version on most ships.

Helpful Kitchen Tools

Dairy Free Dole Whip

By substituting traditional vanilla ice cream with alternatives like coconut or almond milk ice cream, you invite a tropical breeze into your kitchen without compromising on the creamy texture that defines the Dole pineapple whip. 

For a true Dole Whip experience reminiscent of the aloha isle in Disneyland park, ensure your blender is ready to smoothen the frozen pineapple chunks into the silky soft-serve ice cream you adore. The secret to achieving the coveted creamy texture with a dairy-free twist lies in the power of your blend and the quality of your alternative ice cream choice.

Embracing these dairy-free alternatives not only brings a piece of Disney magic into your homemade version but also caters to a wider audience, ensuring everyone can indulge in this frozen treat.

Recipe Tips

  • If you want a purely authentic version, make sure to use your favorite non dairy ice cream. We like coconut milk ice cream and almond milk ice cream.
  • You’ll want to make sure that you use a powerful blender and blend thoroughly to avoid having pineapple chunks, unless that’s what you want 😉 The homemade Dole Whip will be really thick.
  • The recipe below is for 1 serving. I tripled it when I made it and it was more than enough for the 5 of us. 
  • I probably would only double the recipe next time, as it was hard for the blender, even my powerful Ninja, to get all of the pineapple chunks.
  • If you want your treat to have the to have the look of the standard swirl of the soft-serve that you can purchase at Disney, add your Dole Whip to a large piping bag, fitted with a large star tip. Place the piping bag in the freezer for about 30 minutes, then swirl in an ice cream dish.
  • You can also make my favorite, a Dole Whip Float, by adding it to a tall milkshake glass and adding some reserved pineapple juice!
  • To take it up another notch, add a cute paper umbrella or a fun paper straw. If you’re going to make this at home, you’d might as well go for the gold!
