Where to find Dole Whip at Disney World
Dole Whip is an iconic Disney treat that has been around since 1968. If you’re wondering where to find Dole Whip at Disney World, you’re in the right place.
In this post, we’ll talk about where to find Dole Whip at the parks, resorts, Disney Springs, and more.
First, let’s cover some basic Dole Whip FAQ:
What is Dole Whip?
Dole Whip is arguably the most popular sweet treat at Disney World. That is saying something because Disney has a lot of sweet treats.
Dole Whip is also completely gluten-free as well as being dairy-free making it a great ice-cream alternative for both lactose intolerant guests and vegans. We’ll talk more about that in a bit.
If you are getting anything other than “regular” Dole Whip, make sure to ask about gluten, dairy, or any other allergens.
Although Dole Whip is a famous Disney snack, you can also find it at Universal Orlando! More on that later.

How much does Dole Whip Cost?
A simple cup of Dole Whip starts around $5, but more elaborate or alcoholic versions can be up to $15.
Is Dole Whip covered in the Disney Dining Plan?
Dole Whip usually counts as a snack credit under the Disney Dining Plan. However, alcoholic versions of Dole Whip are excluded from the Disney Dining Plan.
Is Dole Whip Vegan?
Yes! Dole Whip itself is vegan. It is coconut-based! However, not all Dole Whip treats will be vegan. Anything mixed with vanilla soft serve is obviously not vegan.
Vanilla soft serve, even the Dole Brand, is milk-based and therefore not vegan or dairy-free.
Make sure to ask if you have anything added to plain Dole Whip.
Dole Whip is also gluten-free; although toppings may not be if you follow any special diet or have allergies, always ask when ordering.
Disney is fantastic with accommodating allergies and dietary preferences.
Where to find Dole Whip at Disney theme parks
First thing’s first, let’s talk about where to find Dole Whip at the Disney theme parks.
The first place that most of us think of when we want Dole Whip is Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom.
Aloha Isle is located in Adventureland and is the original Dole Whip location. Generally, you can buy regular pineapple Dole Whip or pineapple Dole Whip swirled with vanilla soft serve.
Occasionally you’ll find souvenir cups and other Pineapple Whip flavors offered at Aloha Isle.
Storybook Treats offers Lime Dole Whip and is located near Princess Fairytale Hall and Friar’s Nook.
Sunshine Tree Terrace
Sunshine Tree Terrace offers orange Dole Whip and is located near the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse.
Tamu Tamu Refreshments
You can fold cups of Dole Whip at Tamu Tamu Refreshments in Africa. Adults can also add light or dark rum to the Dole Whip (for an up-charge, of course.)
Tamu Tamu Refreshments also offers the “Simba Sunset,” which is Dole Whip, strawberry, coconut, and watermelon syrup. “King Cooler” is the same thing but with rum added for about $5 more.
Although Dole Whip is not always offered at EPCOT, you can often find it during the festivals. If you’re visiting EPCOT during a festival, make sure to check the festival booths.
During the Flower and Garden Festival, you may be able to get your hands on Dole Whip with rum at either the Refreshment Port or the Pineapple Promenade Booth.
You’ll find Galaxy’s Edge, The Tower of Terror, Slinky Dog Dash, and a lot of other popular attractions at Hollywood Studios.
Sadly, you will not find any Dole Whip in the entire park. Since this is my favorite Disney park, I hope that they will add Dole Whip someday. For now, try blue or green milk—also vegan, very different from Dole Whip.
For now, the closest place to find Dole Whip is Boardwalk Joe’s Marvelous Margaritas which will be discussed later.
If you’re hoping to find Dole Whip at a Disney Water Park, you’re in luck! You can find Dole Whip at Typhoon Tilly’s in Typhoon Lagoon.
Marketplace Snacks offers either a cone or cup of Dole Whip. Adults can also add rum if they would like. Yes, adding rum to Dole Whip is very popular.
Marketplace Snacks also offers a Dole Whip Float, which is Dole Whip + pineapple juice.
Sometimes other Dole Whip offerings will pop up around Disney Springs, but your best bet is Marketplace snacks.
Where to find Dole Whip at Disney Resorts
If you’re staying in a Disney Resort, you may be able to get a Dole Whip without going far. Most people know that you can find Dole Whip at the Polynesian, but other resorts offer this popular treat too.
Polynesian Village Resort
If you’re trying to figure out where to find Dole Whip at Disney, one of the first places that come to mind is the Polynesian Village Resort.
It makes sense that this pineapple-based beverage would be found in the Hawaii/South Pacific-themed resort!
Pineapple Lanai at the Polynesian offers regular Dole Whip as well as Dole Whip with rum. You can also find other Dole Whip-based adult beverages at Trader Sams and The Barefoot Pool Bar.
Although Dole Whip is generally served with rum, The Barefoot Pool Bar also offers a frozen margarita with lime Dole Whip.
Pop Century Resort
If you’re staying at Pop Century Resort or the nearby Art of Animation Resort, check out the Everything Food Court for a classic Dole Whip.
If you’re staying at any of the skyline resorts, hop over to Pop Century and get some Dole Whip. Check out 7 things you need to know about the Disney Skyliner while you’re at it.
All-Star Movies Resort
You can often, but not always, find Dole Whip at Silver Screen Spirits Pool Bar.
Boardwalk Joe’s Marvelous Margaritas served Dole Whip Smoothies and offers both an alcoholic and non-alcoholic version.
This is the closest location that serves Dole Whip to the Dole Whip-free Hollywood Studios.
Where do I find flavored Dole Whip?
Flavored Dole Whip, such as lime, raspberry, lemon, and others, are seasonal and tend to come and go. If you see a specialty Dole Whip, make sure to get it because it might not be offered anywhere else!
Where to find Dole Whip outside of Disney in Orlando
You can find Dole Whip at *drum roll please* Universal Orlando! Yes, you can find Dole Whip at Universal.
Dole Whip is available by the cup at Wimpy’s in Islands of Adventure. Make sure to check out my 2021 Universal Orlando guide if you’re planning a Universal Orlando vacation.

Booking your Disney Vacation
In my opinion, planning a Disney vacation is a lot of work! Between dining reservations, Fast Passes, figuring out where to stay, whether or not you need a car, it’s a lot!
One of the best Disney World Tips that I can give you is to book with a Disney Certified Travel Agent – like me! Booking with a Disney Travel Agent will save a lot of time and money. Here are the types of things that I do as a Disney Travel Agent:
- Itinerary Planning
- Helping figure out which dining plan is best for you (if any!)
- Helping with Advanced Dining Reservations
- Fast Pass Recommendations (when they are available again)
- Tips on how to make the best use of the My Disney Experience App
- Making sure that you get the most current promotions to save you money
Although I am a Disney Travel Agent, I only take on a few Disney trips per year. Make sure to contact me to check availability.
DIY your Disney Planning
If you plan to DIY your vacation, I understand that too! I highly recommend buying your tickets through Undercover Tourist.
There are many really scammy sites out there, so make sure you’re booking through an approved partner (like Undercover Tourist.)
If you plan to stay off property, I recommend checking out Expedia to see what is available in the Orlando area outside of the Disney Resorts.
