Dole Whip anyone?

The Dole Whip is a Disney Food Icon, people love them or hate them. I personally am on the fence about them, I will give it another shot when I visit this May–maybe I will love it and buy an I LOVE DOLE WHIP t-shirt.  

If you have never had a Dole Whip, here is what it looks like. Ooohhh Ahhh…dole whip


Here is a recipe if you can’t live without the Dole Whip and want to make them at home: (moms and dads if you are having a bad day add a little grown-up beverage into the treat) 


  1. 2 20 ounce cans Dole crushed pineapple with juice
  2. 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  3. 2 tablespoons lime juice
  4. 1/3 cup sugar
  5. 1 and 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped



  1. Drain pineapple; reserve 2 tablespoons juice. Set aside.
  2. Place pineapple, lemon juice, lime juice, sugar and reserved pineapple juice in blender or food processor container; cover and blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into two 1-quart freezer zipped bags and store bags flat in freezer.
  4. Freeze 1-1/2 hours or until slushy.
  5. Stir pineapple slush gently into whipped cream until slightly blended, in large bowl.
  6. Return to freezer until completely frozen, about 1 hour.

Dumbo an icon in Magic Kingdom Park

Guests of all ages are invited to fly high in the sky with Dumbo The Flying Elephant in this classic attraction at Storybook Circus in New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom theme park. No trip to Disney is complete without a high-flying adventure on this icon.  I can’t tell you how upset I was when we took my daughter for her 1st trip and Dumbo was down for repairs as they added Storybook Circus to Magic Kingdom. (I knew a lot of trips were in our future so I didn’t have too much of a meltdown over it)

Dumbo The Flying Elephant is inspired by the title character from the 1941 Disney animated motion picture. And now, you can fly like Dumbo, too! On this ride, you’ll take to the skies with Dumbo as he practices his new found abilities.

During your aerial adventure around the circus, maneuver the easy-to-handle joystick inside your Dumbo gondola up or down to control just how high—or how low—you want to go. Guests of all ages are sure to love this magical, fantastical flight that offers great views of the vibrant Storybook Circus.

After the initial opening, this classic ride doubled in size—and fun—when Dumbo was joined by his twin in summer 2012 for a ride that features 2 squadrons of airborne pachyderms!

If your little ones (or big ones) are too scared to ride Dumbo there is still a photo-op with Dumbo by the attraction. Be sure to ride at night, so you can see the Magic Kingdom as it lights up the nights sky.
