Food is arguably the best part of a Disney vacation! Disney has become known for their delicious, Insta-worthy, and often Mickey-shaped foods and snacks that you can find all over the property. Mickey bars, giant turkey legs, and blue milk are all an integral part of a Disney vacation. I mean, did you even go to Disney if you didn’t eat a Mickey Pretzel? While Disney’s list of top snacks is always growing, the most iconic Disney snack has to be Dole Whip.
The classic Dole Whip is pineapple soft serve made by the Dole company. Side note- it’s certified vegan! The frozen treat was first served in Disneyland in 1986 when Dole sponsored the Enchanted Tiki Room. This is also around the time Dole Whip started appearing in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Pineapple is the original and most popular flavor, but Dole Whip is also available in orange, strawberry, raspberry, mango, pineapple, lemon, lime, cherry and watermelon! Since coming to the parks in the 80s, Dole Whip has gained a huge following among Disney fans. Disney is always introducing different Dole Whip menu items and the treat even has its own merch! The Dole Whip Dress and Kakamora Float are two of the most popular Dole Whip inspired items.
