Bob loved everything about WDW. There was not one inch he didn't find magical.

How about just a picture anywhere holding a Dole Whip? It doesn't have to be a specific spot that embodies Bob's love of Disney - more the whimsy and magic of it all.
A Dole Whip can represent your spending time with Bob around the park.

He would love knowing he was able to spend time with you enjoying a Dole Whip anywhere.

John

I like this idea! I bet Pete will put a special category ie. "Dole Whips around WDW in memory of Bob" in the DIS Community Photo Gallery section for the pics and we can all post them there. I have only one concern... THEY ARE GOING TO RUN OUT OF DOLE WHIPS!!!! ;)

I was thinking if we did the bench thing, what if they removed the bench one day :scared1: we would of had to do a spot that will never be gone, ya know. But this being it is the whole WDW and a Dole Whip :thumbsup2 I can see it now, pics of the someone with a Dole Whip on the train, monorail, on a bench, in front of Peter Pan, the Castle, everywhere in WDW ... how cool that is could be everywhere Bob loved, like John said ALL of WDW!! With a creative bunch like we have here, this could is sooo perfect to honor Bob's memory and keep his love for Disney going on- in his name!

Now I am getting excited, we can honor Bob by doing the things he loved best :goodvibes Going to WDW and getting DOLE WHIPS!!

What do you all think, we should all take a vote here ..."DOLE WHIPS AROUND WDW" I start with a big fat YES!!

Thanks John, for the wonderful idea!! :thumbsup2 :thumbsup2

I don't even think it needs a vote. I'm sure the answer will be an overwhelming YES.

We'll be in the WDW from the 18-23 (17 days away). I'll be sure to post my picture enjoying every bite/sip.

I'll be there in 44 days and you can bet I'll be having a dole whip and taking pictures. Maybe we can get a sticky thread so we can post photos to it whenever we go.

I cannot wait to get my dole whip... We are not back to the world until July but keep your eyes open at fairs and carinvals this spring and summer.. we found Dole whips at a fair last year so you never know where they may pop up... and I know Bawb would want us to enjoy them everywhere!!

can you only get dole whips in the MK? I've never had one before.. but will be getting one every trip from now on! Are there different variations on dole whips?

I think you can get them at the Poly too..... They come with either vanilla icecream or pineapple icecream.
Go over the bridge to Adventure Land from the hub, and the stand is on the right. Can't miss it.

Great minds think alike. Going to MK today to have me a Dole Whip for the first time. Bawb has inspired me to go get me one.

Thinking of you Bawb, don't worry I'll get you one!

That's so thoughtful, Will. I know Bawb is up in heaven and thrilled that you are enjoing the MK in his memory. Will you be taking an impromptu nap also? :rotfl:

I think this is a great idea. We all know dole whips were one of the many things that Bawb loved about WDW...how can we forget the time he brought his dole whip trash to the studio?

I'll be at MK a week from today. You can guarantee that I'll be getting a picture of me and my dole whip.

I too have never had a Dole Whip but it is top of my must do list...I will be sure to make a 'toast' with it in memory of Bawb.

I think there is even an ice cream place near home that claims to do something along the dole whip lines ... if it's somewhere close, I might even have a "local" dole whip in Bob's honor. ;) I mean ... I can't wait until December!

I made a little tag, it's in the gallery if anyone wants to use it...but I would like to make a better one, does anyone have a great picture of a dole whip?:confused3

I'm having a heck of a time finding a good one...This one was a quick drawing in photoshop...I'd like to do it to make a little pin for my pin bag.

Don't feel bad. We've been going 2-3 times a year for the past ten years and I have yet to have one. I will be having one in less than two weeks though.

Great ideas. I love the bench though as well. I'll combine them both. I think I need something physical to rest my hand on for a second to feel better. Kind of like touching a memorial.

We'll be at Epcot on the 11th. I wish I could get one there. Before that we'll be on the Wonder for 3 nights. I'll have to find a way to pay tribute on the ship!

Let me start by saying I really enjoyed doing this. It just felt right and I can't say this will be the last time I do this. Like I said before, I 've never had me a Dole Whip so yet again Bawb has introduced me to something else I will enjoy for years to come.

So me and Brian are sitting there enjoying our drinks talking stories about Bawb when I look over and see a small souviner booth right next to us, not even 30ft away. It took me a second to realize it said "Bwana Bob's". I knew just then that Bawb was looking over us and was happy for that moment. I nudged Brian and did a head nod, he looked over and back and you could tell he felt the same. I think this is definately something that Bawb would love, so please continue this if you think it would help you to connect with our friend.

Bob had already inspired me to try one and besides making sure to look for him in the parks I was going to try my first Dole Whip. I didn't know what it was, so I researched it here, and thought it sounded delicious. Now I too will be having my first Dole Whip this year and it will be in honor of Bob.

This sounds great, I too will lift one for Bob.

But what if there was a special time every day for purchasing our Dole Whips, say 2 PM (must not spoil dinner). Then at 2 PM every Podcast fan there can toast Bob and the gang together. Eventually 2PM can be known as "Bawb Time".

My DW and I will raise our Whip the week of July 20th.
