The Pineapple Lanai, located at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, is a snack kiosk that serves a classic Disney snack option — the Pineapple Dole Whip. Once only found at the Aloha Isle in the Magic Kingdom, the Pineapple Lanai is now another great go-to spot to get your Dole Whip fix.
Currently, the Pineapple Lanai serves two types of Dole Whip — the traditional Pineapple Dole Whip and the Vanilla Dole Whip. You can also combine the two and get Swirl Dole Whip. If you’re feeling fancy, you can also get a float served with fresh pineapple juice and your choice of Dole Whip.
Pineapple Dole Whips are gluten free, dairy free, vegan, and free of the top common allergens. But, the vanilla flavor does contain dairy. It is recommended that you speak to a cast member at the Pineapple Lanai about any potential cross-contamination with dairy in the Dole Whip machines and containers used to pre-mix the Dole Whip flavors.

The Pineapple Dole Whip is such a rare treat. I love that it feels like it should be filled with dairy, yet isn’t. It makes for a perfect treat on a hot Florida afternoon, and it is a classic Disney snack. I’m also glad that I can get it at Disney’s Polynesian Resort any time I visit there.
On this visit, I got the classic Pineapple Dole Whip in a cup, but I will definitely get a Pineapple Dole Whip Float on my next visit. I love both so much that it’s hard to choose whenever I go to order one.
Have you had the Pineapple Dole Whip? Is it a must do for you when you go to the Magic Kingdom?
