For many years I walked past the Dole Whip Station in Disneyland. Feeling very upset that being vegan stopped me from tasting that delicious looking pineapple soft serve. Especially when it was 90+ degrees! But a couple of years ago after hearing a few whispers and rumors I found that they had altered the recipe to be completely dairy free. In turn making it vegan!
It no longer contains sodium caseinate, a milk derivative. So now we can enjoy a vegan soft serve dessert right in the middle of Disneyland! Disney World vegans aren’t left out though. You can also get the world famous Dole Whip in a few of the Disney World locations.

Disneyland Dole Whip
In Disneyland you can find the vegan Dole Whip to the left of the park entrance. It’s located next to the Enchanted Tiki Room in AdventureLand. You can usually find it from the huge line of people ready for a cool snack!
All of the options on the menu are vegan. Including Pineapple Dole Whip $2.79, Dole Whip Float (pineapple juice with pineapple Dole Whip) $4.69, and a Fresh Pineapple Spear $2.59.
If you only want the Pineapple Spear, you can purchase one that is exactly the same over by the fruit stand. This is only a few steps away next to the Jungle Cruise and you can skip the huge line. I like to have the Vegan Dole Whip Float usually. It’s pretty big, but you’re at Disneyland so indulge a little:)
Disney World Dole Whip
In Disney World you can buy the Dole whip in a couple locations. One is in The Magic Kingdom at the Aloha Isle Stand. Aloha Isle is to the left of the entrance of the park in AdventureLand. Here they have a few flavors of the Dole Whip. Pineapple, Orange and Vanilla. The Pineapple and Orange are vegan but stay away from the Vanilla flavor as this is NOT VEGAN.
This menu has the same items as Disneyland (Dole Whip and Dole Whip Float) plus a few other snacks and drinks. A few of the other vegan options are: Coffee $2.09, Apple Juice $2.59, Pineapple Juice $2.19, and Assorted Sodas $2.59 & $2.89. These are all included on the dining plan
You can also purchase vegan Dole Whip at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. So if this hotel wasn’t beautiful enough for you yet it’s made even better with this little Pineapple Lanai!
The Pineapple Lanai is located behind the Great Ceremonial House to the left. The menu includes the Pineapple and Vanilla Dole Whip Soft Serves (remember Vanilla will not be vegan) $3.99, Dole Whip Soft Serve Swirl (not vegan since it’s pineapple and vanilla combined) $3.99, and the Pineapple Float (order Pineapple not Vanilla to make sure it’s vegan) $4.99. Here you can also get souvenir Tiki Bowls and Sippers for an extra cost.
Now enjoy your lovely vegan Dole Whip!
