There is no Disney treat more iconic than the Dole Whip. You can argue that you prefer Mickey Bars or that your family never vacations at Walt Disney World without having Mickey waffles, but Dole Whips inarguably end up at the top of every poll. They are available in more flavors than any other snack. They’re classic and perfect in hot weather. However, if you’re looking for a novel way to eat this favorite, how about in cupcake form? Now available at the Contempo Cafe in Disney’s Contemporary Resort, is the Dole Whip Cupcake!
National Dole Whip Day was July 21st, but you can still celebrate retroactively by eating as many Dole Whip treats as you can handle. This cute little cupcake not only looks like that refreshing pineapple soft serve, but it shares a flavor palate with it. It’s a yellow cupcake filled with Dole Whip pineapple mousse, topped with buttercream frosting, and garnished with a cherry. It will be available through August 20th, so you still have time to grab this bright and beautiful dessert before it goes away! Costing $5.79, this cupcake is a frugal option compared to a lot of fancier Disney desserts. It can also be shareable if you have little ones!
If you’re still after a classic Dole Whip, you can grab them from places like Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom, Tamu Tamu Refreshments at Animal Kingdom, the Pineapple Lanai at the Polynesian Resort, and Swirls on the Water at Disney Springs. Dole Whips are worth celebrating, so make sure you get one before the end of summer!
