If you’ve done any sort of research on snacking at the Walt Disney World Resort, you’ve no doubt come across extensive chatter about something called a Dole Whip. This utterly refreshing, creamy, frozen, pineapple treat, some would say, is the stuff Disney dreams are made of.

Available at only two locations: Pineapple Lanai at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Aloha Isle in Adventureland at the Magic Kingdom (now located in the former space occupied by the Sunshine Tree Terrace), the Dole Whip is one of the most popular and sought after of the Disney snack items. (Side note: Tamu Tamu at the Animal Kingdom also sells a similar treat they call Pineapple Soft Serve-and you can add rum if you want!)

Today, we’re adding another location to acquire this tasty treat by teaching you how to bring this delectable magic right into your own kitchen! This recipe, while not exactly the same and of course is minus the sights, sounds and smells of the Magic Kingdom on a warm day, comes pretty darn close according to the taste buds and all of the flavor is harnessed inside a neat , satisfying and fun popsicle.

The ingredient list is small, prep time is short and within 2-4 hours (ours were done in 3) you will be ready to devour your creation. Makes 6-8 pops depending on mold size.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 20oz can of Crushed Pineapple
  • 1 8oz tub of Cool Whip, thawed
  • The juice from one small lime
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • Popsicle molds


Here’s what you do:

  • Blend together all ingredients in a blender
  • Pour mixture into popsicle molds
  • Freeze for 2-4 hours
