A Short and Sweet History of DOLE Whip

If you’ve visited Disney Parks in the summertime, chances are you can practically taste DOLE Whip the moment you read the words. This light, sweet, and refreshing treat has been a staple of summer fun at Disney since 1984.

So what is DOLE Whip? It’s a fat-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and cholesterol-free frozen dessert that’s absolutely not free of flavor. DOLE Whip is sweet and refreshing, always hitting the spot on a hot day.

The seeds for this particular pineapple were planted in 1976 when DOLE Packaged Foods became the official sponsor of Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room at Disneyland. Seven years later, DOLE brought its fresh pineapple juice and spears to Aloha Isle at Magic Kingdom.

In 1984, Aloha Isle gave rise to a luscious legend with the debut of DOLE Pineapple Whip. The middle word was eventually taken out, and DOLE Whip spread its sweetness to the Tiki Juice Bar at Disneyland in 1986.

Over the 35 years since, DOLE Whip has become even more widely available. It’s popped up at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa and even on the high seas thanks to Disney Cruise Line.

Dole Whip has also become more widely flavorful by adding new flavors in addition to classic pineapple. Today, you can grab Dole Whip in flavors like orange, strawberry, raspberry, mango, lemon, lime, cherry, and watermelon (and get it with alcohol!).

And, yes, you can get a pumpkin spice-flavored Dole Whip in the fall. I have it on good authority that it’ll be returning to Ulu Café at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa this fall.

Celebrate Dole Whip Day with Moana-Inspired Dipped Cone

One place you could grab DOLE Whip more recently was Pineapple Lanai at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, which had been temporarily closed due to COVID-19. In a beautiful twist of sweet synchronicity, Polynesian Village Resort officially reopens on July 19—that also happens to be Dole Whip Day.

To celebrate, Pineapple Lanai will be serving up a limited “Tomatoa-inspired” Dipped Cone perfect for fans of Moana. Available exclusively from July 19-21, this amazing treat swirls orange- and raspberry-flavored DOLE Whip together in a white chocolate-dipped waffle cone dusted with shimmering golden sugar.

You’ll only have until Wednesday to grab this amazing treat, but you have plenty of other opportunities to try DOLE Whip if you’re visiting Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, or Aulani or taking a Disney Cruise.
