The Legend of the Dole Whip

.

.

One thing I read over and over again while planning our trip to Disney World was to:

“try the Dole Whip”

you must try the Dole Whip

dole-whip

Dole Whip is the #1 must eat food in all of Disney World”

“OMG it is the best thing everrrr”

So naturally, as you may have guessed, we found ourselves searching out this legendary treat. For those who are not aware this highly prized blend of frozen pineapple can only be found at one shop within the entire mammoth compound that is Disney World: “Aloha Isle” in the Magic Kingdom.

For something so popular we figured we would find this great big restaurant-type building with giant Dole Whip signs plastered everywhere sure to grab your attention… instead we found a window and a line…

A big huge ass effing line! A ridiculously long crazy flippin gigantic insane freakin line!!! And so we thought to ourselves: “this must be the greatest stuff ever!! Look at all these people waiting in a line longer than most ride lines for this incredible, magical, super tasty concoction. And so we waited …and waited …and waited …and began to wonder why, if Dole Whip was so popular, why wasn’t it added to other menus throughout the park? Why only this stupid little window?

It. Does. Not. Make. Sense.

And that’s when it hit us… this thing was never going to live up to all the hype. This treat was being artificially inflated by purposefully making it hard to get. After all …only a fool would wait in line 45 mins for a bowl of ice cream when just 30 steps away you could get some in less than 5 unless, of course, it was the “best thing ever” right? But by then we were committed and were going to see it through to the end.

And so FINALLY we got our hands on the famous Dole Whip float and I had my first bite and all I can say is…
