A few weeks ago, I had the great fortune of being at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort for the opening of the Pineapple Lanai and, once again, enjoy my favorite Disney treat, a Dole Whip!
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort (“the Poly” to friends and family!) has been undergoing re-imagineering for several months and temporarily relocated the quick service restaurant, Capt.Cook’s, where quests were able to get self serve Dole Whips. Since then, Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland and Tamu Tamu Refreshments in Animal Kingdom, and started serving that wonderful magic in a cup!without the Dole Whip machines. On August 29, 2014, the Pineapple Lanai opened it’s “window” and once again joined
The self serve machines from Capt. Cook’s have been replaced by friendly, smiling cast members serving up Pineapple, Vanilla and Swirled flavored Dole Whips as well as Floats in pineapple juice and yes, you can use a snack credit from your dinning plan to get one. Also, to celebrate
The Pineapple Lanai is located right outside the lobby doors as you are walking towards the pool. It offers several tables where you can sit in the shade and enjoy your Dole Whip while taking in the beauty of the resort’s Polynesian garden. It will be open from 12 p.m. and remain open up to 1 hour after at Magic Kingdom.
P.S. I claim bragging rights as my wife and I were the first guest to have Dole Whips from the Pineapple Lanai. So a great big thank you goes out to the management for the souvenir Tiki Bowl!
