    The lines at Aloha Isle where you buy the Dole Whips can get pretty long!

    Dole Whip is a soft serve frozen dessert. It comes in different flavors...it is available chocolate, vanilla, pineapple, or swirl.

    You can get them as a float. My favorite is pineapple Dole Whip in pineapple juice! DELICIOUS!!!!

    Dole Whip - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    That does a pretty good job of explaining what it is, but I must add that it is imperative you try one! lol

    According to touringplans.com the crowd levels are mostly 9's and 10's next week, so be prepared to deal with large volumes of people for most of the things in the park including lines for snacks. Be sure to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, and also fastpasses are a must. If you are uncertain about either, feel free to ask how they work Have a great trip!

    Keep in mind if the lines are crazy at the Magic Kingdom for dole whips, the Polynesian's food court also sells dole whips. They are the same as the ones at the Magic Kingdom just without the wait.

    I stood in line on Monday and got my Dole Whip Float in a few minutes. Hopefully it won't be too long for you either!

    I love the Pineapple in Pineapple with a pineapple spear! During Thanksgiving week, my family rode the Flying Carpets. As they got in line, I went for a Dole Whip. I was back in timeto see them get in their carpet and take pictures!

    Dole whips are fantastic! In my opinion, it's one of my MUST HAVE things when I go to disney world. Another must do is a hamburger at Electric Umbrella (at epcot) and my son's favorites are churros and funnel cake.

    You can buy the mix online to make them. I don't know the exact website so you might have to do some googling but on another board they were talking about how you could buy the mix to make at home. Might involve an ice cream machine though.
