In memory of our Beloved Bob "Bawb" Varley

http://photopost.wdwinfo.com/data/747/805137851dolewhip.jpg

If you would like to honor Bob's memory how about having a Dole Whip anywhere in WDW and post a picture of you with it here. :goodvibes **special thanks to sconnell and WebmasterJohn for coming up with this wonderful idea**

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

Bawb sure loved them Dole Whips. This ones for YOU BAWB!!!!!

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.

very nice Will:thumbsup2You're a good friend and Brian needs that now more than ever. Bawb is smiling down on you.:hug:

I'm having my first Dole Whip too(18yrs of park visits!) Sunday, for Bawb:angel:

I'm in, I'm subbed (to the thread!) and I can't wait for October.

(unless we move to Orlando, which seems to be becoming a distinct possibility! -tiny cheer-)

Thank you for starting this, maybe it will become a sticky, and we'll have a small permanent memorial for "Bob, that funny, quirky guy with the Jersey accent that used to be on the podcast". (because there will be new generations of podcast listeners who may never venture to hear the goofy wonderfulness of it all, unless we nudge them along...)

Hmmm.... I just ate some homemade Dole Whip which I made in honour of Bawb. I will be sure to get one in september. It's such a shame that you can only get them 3 different locations in the world. I wonder if Bawb's come up with a hevenly dole whip yet?

I just wanted to say a few things quick.

I just got back from florda not 2 days ago. Was there 20th, to 29th. Spent alot of time around the parks looking for bob and his cart cam with no luck. I knew I most likely would not find him, but was on the lookout no less.

I had my first dole whip because only because of how much bob liked them and what do you know I love them to.

I must say even though I have only been on dis for a few months, it really upset me to learn the bad news when I got home. knowing I was in florda when it happen just got to me.

just wanted to say I wish everyone well. I hope time will heal all.

Sorry you didn't get to meet him, Mike. He was a wonderful man. He would have welcomed you, as he did everyone, with his gentle good humor.

I've decided when I am at Disneyland next week, I am going to have a Dole Whip for Bawb. I asked my mother and she said for sure, and I will tell her about our Bawb.

I've never had a DOle Whip, but I will do so this on our next trip in memory of Bawb. My sincere sympathy to the Podcast crew for their loss, as well as Bawb's family and friends. He will be missed.

It will be awhile before I get back to WDW, so today I went out and had a vanilla shake with a double order of pineapple swirled in--not exactly a Dole Whip, but the best I could do on short notice!

Thanks guys! It felt good to take this pic and I thought about Bawb the entire time I enjoyed my Dole Whip.

While I was at MK, I also bought a pin of the Partners Statue to add to my small pin collection in honor of Bawb. It isn't a pin I would have normally purchased for myself, but I know how much Bawb loved Walt and thought it was a nice way to commemorate the day, since we all know from Bawb's very own experience that dole whips don't make very good keepsakes!

It's going to be my Bawb pin.

Oohh - yay!! Perfect!! I am going to the world tomorrow & hitting MK on Wednesday morning - sans kiddos - and planned on walking around happily by myself eating a dole whip and a Mickey bar. I just loved listening to Bawb and the rest of the crew talk about exploring the world "quietly" as an adult; I was so saddened, like everyone, to hear that I had missed seeing the Kaht Kahm in person. Now I'll just have to find a cute cast member to take my picture; it'll be posted by next week.

Me and Brian were trying to think of what we could do the next time we buy our Dole whips. I'm not sure if he heard this from the boards or if its already been mentioned but. The next time I buy a Dole Whip, I will also buy one for the person behind me. Just a nice thing to do and another way to pass on a little happiness inspired by our dear friend. Just a thought

It has been almost 20 years since I last had a Dole Whip- listening to the podcasts reminded me of how wonderful they are! I am taking my family to WDW in October. In the spirit of his eulogy, I will buy a round of Dole Whips in Bob's honor for the person behind me in line. I encourage other Dis unplugged listeners to do the same.

That buying one for the person behind you- was an idea from our boards yes, not sure who suggested it...

I won't be able to manage a Dole Whip until October but, in the mean time, I saw a stand that sold pineapple ice cream on Saturday (never seen that here before) so I got one and took a quiet moment sitting on a bench by the river to eat it.

I thought about what really makes a "great" person and realised it's a lot more about carrying two umbrellas just in case and a lot less about any of the other complicated things so many of us drive ourselves half crazy striving for.

I hope to toast Bawb and that important lesson in 148 days time with my first Dole Whip. :goodvibes

That is a GREAT idea. Next time I get a Dole Whip in Bob's memory, I will buy one for the person behind me and tell them that it is from "Bawb", a man who brought me Disney Magic every week. It will be more like "paying it back, as I pay it forward. Keep the spirt of Bob going.:hippie:

I had my Dole Whip on Tuesday at Disneyland. I got the Dole Whip Float and walked down Main Street sharing with my mom and husband. One for me, One for you, One for you, One for me. I have to say I never likes Dole Whips when I tried them before, but this one seemed special. Now I will definitely get one every trip.

I have to say the line for Dole Whips on Saturday was so long. It was one of the longest lines in the park.

I just read the news about Bob, and wanted to say I will miss hearing him on the podcasts. My condolences go out to everyone who knew him.

I was in WDW last week, enjoying a late afternoon Dole Whip float on Tuesday 4/28. I laughed to myself remembering the podcast when Bob brought Dole Whips for the crew, but ended up eating them all before the show. I agree, they really are that good! How sad to come home and realize that was my "in honor of Bob" Dole Whip.

The Dole Whip is soft serve Pineapple ice cream in a cup, and the float adds pineapple juice to the ice cream. The float is sweet, sticky any messy (not necessarily a bad thing), so you might want to start off with the whip.

Have a Dole Whip or Dole Whip Float has part of my WDW tradition for years but neither my DH or my DS can stand them. :rotfl:

Just got back and had to share my Dole Whip experience with you all. I went to the MK after the meet at the Gaylord Palms. I stopped to check in @ SS drop my bags and go. First order of business was a Dole Whip. Never had one before but was told that they are very sweet. I thought if I order one for myself and I can't eat it I'd feel bad throwing it away. My problem was solved when I heard a family in front of me ordering one. I stepped up and asked if I might pay for a Dole Whip. Explaining I was paying it forward for a friend who loved Dole Whips and spreading the magic. Couldn't take a pic but it felt good to spread the magic for Bob:goodvibes

:flower3: I think this is a great idea and I was thinking to do the same thing myself next time we're at the parks. What about maybe printing out a small card for the cast member to give the person getting the Dole Whip that says something like "Enjoy this Dole Whip in memory of our Disney friend, Bob Varley". I'm not that great with words but maybe someone on here could come up with something better.

(although my sister is really going to think I've totally lost my mind when I start paying for the Dole Whips of strangers :rotfl: )

I'm not really good with words,either. And I've been thinking about this as well. Maybe a LGMH with something about Bob on it? I don't know...been tossing it around in my head. My only thought, though, was....would a CM pass something like that on to the next person??:confused: Would love to hear if someone comes up with a good idea for this!
Can't wait to have a Dole Whip for Bob and pay it forward to the next person!

Me either and especially since I was alone this trip. No one to hide behind if I messed up:scared1:
That's why I "paid it forward" quite literally stepping in to offer to pay when they ordered. I got out of their way quickly feeling very good as I looked up to Bob.
Maybe as time goes on and more CM's are aware of what we're doing it may be easier to give them a gift card.

......It's in honor of Bob! I was at the park by myself Wednesday 5/7 and had to have a cast member take the picture for me. I think I look kind of "goofy" in it, but oh well!

http://photos.imageevent.com/triedntrueamericanbulldogs/personalpictures/websize/2008-05-15%20045.JPG
[Yay - finally got the photo to work!]

I also had a great time ordering.....I asked for my one pineapple Dole Whip and paid with a $10 bill. Told the CM to keep the change and apply it to the next order of the daddy with his daughter in a stroller behind me. He was thrilled! It would have been nice to have a sticker/tag/card to give him that explained it because I was in a HUGE hurry right then to go meet my rental car pickup & didn't have time to tell him all about Bawb.

[I apologize now if you are seeing the big red X instead of a photo, my photo share site isn't very good! Sometimes it will work and sometimes it won't.]

I also had a great time ordering.....I asked for my one pineapple Dole Whip and paid with a $10 bill. Told the CM to keep the change and apply it to the next order of the daddy with his daughter in a stroller behind me. He was thrilled! It would have been nice to have a sticker/tag/card to give him that explained it because I was in a HUGE hurry right then to go meet my rental car pickup & didn't have time to tell him all about Bawb.

That's great Chrissie -- I hope we get to see the photo soon. :goodvibes

I want to start off by saying I hope that nobody takes this the wrong way or takes offence by it. It was only meant to be fun and a creative way for me to share some Disney moments with Bawb. Just thought I'd throw out that disclaimer before you folks think I'm certifiably insane.:rotfl:

I don't know how familiar you folks are with "flat Stanley". In short it's a project created by a teacher based on a book where kids would take flat Stanley with them on vacations and so forth and created projects based on those experiences. So in my infinite wisdom I figured why not a "flat Bawb". So here are a few photos of my new friend and I at Disney this past weekend. If it doesn't come off as stalkerish I may take him with us to Disneyland next month. I already have a few things planned for that one.

Here is a photo of myself enjoying a Dole Whip at MK.

And if we learned anything from Bob it was that nothing is better than a well timed nap. And is there any better place for a nap than this.

Slapwhitey - I kinda like your "Flat Bawb"! My DD is in 2nd grade and had a Flat Stanley project this year. She sent Stanley to her godmother in OH; he had lots of adventures in the optometrist's office and at a museum which were reported back to her teacher. But, then we got a seperate report sent to my hubby and I at home which outlined some of Flat Stanley's other nefarious :eek: activities. As long as you make sure that your Flat Bawb behaves, I can't imagine anyone having an issue with the way you have chosen to honor our friend.

Thanks, it was quite fun actually. I too thought, if anyone, Bob would get a kick out of it. I think my wife may have thought I was a tad off my rocker but I think she was having fun with it as well.

I just got back from my epic 3-week Disney adventure (WDW, 15-night Disney Magic repo cruise, DLR), so it's my first time back here in a long, LONG time. I'll be posting a full trip report once it is finished, but wanted to post these pics from Aloha Isle:

I had the chance to introduce my parents to the wonders of Dole Whip floats on this trip. It was their first time to the World in 17 years. So we toasted Bawb a few days after the memorial.

Thanks for all the memories, Bawb.

I told DH I have to take a pic with a Dole Whip for Bawb. Well, first we went on Splash Mountain and got drenched. This in turn made my hair look like a cross between my Aunt Gertrude and Barbara Bush. In other words, if you were to wikipedia "bad hair day", I would be the feature example. :eek: :eek: :eek:

My Dole Whip photo will have to be taken on a later visit when I have hairspray with me. In the meantime, I'm enjoying all of your pix. :goodvibes

Greetings Everyone: I had a Dole Whip for Bawb on Friday, May 16th.

I was in Orlando all by myself for a conference. Corey and Julie helped me get tickets to the PPP on Friday, May 16th (after my meeting was over). I had to get a Dole Whip in honor of Bawb. It was actually my first Dole Whip, but won't be my last.

http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/dparfitt1/Disney%20May%2008/094DisneyMay08.jpg

In addition, I wanted to share a Dole Whip and buy one unexpectedly for the person behind me. So a lone older woman drives up in an ECV. I thought this was perfect. I told her I wanted to buy her a Dole Whip Float, she said she didn't know what that was. I was just handed mine, I said this is what it was. She said "OK", and I just handed the one I just got. I then told her how I had a friend who had just passed away and one of his favorite things were Dole Whip floats, so I was buying this in memory of him. The woman said I was such a nice "boy" (a nice thing to say since I'm turning 40 this year), and I thought she was going to cry.

The experience made my day. Thanks Bawb!

Hey we are all here to share our love of Bawb. Please don't ruin it by making comments like that. We are a close knit group who love to 'chit chat'. I think that in Bawbs eyes, everyone talking about Dole whips and giving them to others is something he would really love.

but sadly, I have no photos! It was 99 that afternoon and by the time the CM set the first one on the counter it was going south. They had to put them in drink cups so they wouldn't slide right out of the bowls!

But, we did celebrate Bawb's memory with our first Dole Whips...and I have to say, when the guy was right, he was right!!! On a day when it was 99 with nearly 100% humidity, they were a little bowl of heaven!

So in my infinite wisdom I figured why not a "flat Bawb". So here are a few photos of my new friend and I at Disney this past weekend. If it doesn't come off as stalkerish I may take him with us to Disneyland next month. I already have a few things planned for that one.

Here is a photo of myself enjoying a Dole Whip at MK.

And if we learned anything from Bob it was that nothing is better than a well timed nap. And is there any better place for a nap than this.

OK I just had to get this up now before it gets too old.

We have a story or course...

We kept wearing shirts other than the Dis Podcast ones because it was hot, and I only got DD the tee not the tank. So when it came to the last day- we were like :worried: we got to do it today. We never had a Dole before either. We packed the tees in a bag since it was of course the HOTTEST day of our trip and there were too hot to wear all day in the park. It was also the busiest day I have ever seen on any of my trips. It was the Sunday before Memorial Day. When we got in line, we planned on buying for the people behind us. Well the first thing that happened was of course they SOLD OUT of the juice to make the Dole Whip drink and we could only get the ice cream- did I mention it was 1000 degrees out! the stuff was melting everywhere. I mention to the people behind me that they are out of the jiuce so the only had the ice cream, they said they would just be getting water then :worried: The guy takes our order and then makes the ice cream, so by the time he hands them to me and rings me up--- **hint to CM's** when serving ice cream on a 1000 degree day, take the money first and then make the ice cream :) Ok so he rings me up and I now have a melting mess in front of me. I then ask him to ring up two more, but do not make them, he is totally confused LOL :bitelip: I just said, please tell the next 2 people that order them that they are paid for and to please enjoy. He rings it up and is still confused.

So now the cups of Dole are melting all over our hands, we are sweating our butts off in these tees and we need to pose for a pic for the Bawb thread on the DIS :laughing:

I am cheering Bawb:

I will post in the next day or so. Anything special you wish the card to say?

What a lovely thing to do. I'm not sure what to say on it, but I think if it said somewhere that it's a tribute to Bawb, or in honor of Bawb, or here's one on Bawb...something like that would be nice.

I was in the MK on Friday, June 13 and again on the 16th and I did notice a considerable difference in the amount of strollers being used -- nothing like that picture. There were very few "Disney" strollers, but a normal amount of regular strollers. Judging by Miss Missy's pics, the increase in stroller prices didn't affect everyone. Wow, that's a lot of strollers!! A sea of them!

And, although it was pretty rainy on the 16th, I did get a Dole Whip float, walked down to the Adventureland bridge, held up my cup and said, I Miss You Bawb! Here's to you!! We then found a spot in front of the Crystal Palace and watched Wishes. A perfect end to the day.

I would add pictures, but I don't post pics of myself or my DD on the Internet. Sorry!

...In addition, I wanted to share a Dole Whip and buy one unexpectedly for the person behind me. So a lone older woman drives up in an ECV. I thought this was perfect. I told her I wanted to buy her a Dole Whip Float, she said she didn't know what that was. I was just handed mine, I said this is what it was. She said "OK", and I just handed the one I just got. I then told her how I had a friend who had just passed away and one of his favorite things were Dole Whip floats, so I was buying this in memory of him. The woman said I was such a nice "boy" (a nice thing to say since I'm turning 40 this year), and I thought she was going to cry.

The experience made my day. Thanks Bawb!

You DID make me cry...in a good way. :) That's a very sweet tribute. I'll be having my first Dole Whip in September and certainly will be thinking of Bawb.

In May after Bob's memorial DIS meet. I went to the MK for the purpose of buying one for the next person in line. I had heard from a DISer (who shall remain nameless) at the meet that Dole Whips were very syrupy and sweet. Not my thing:( I decided rather than taste it and throw it away (couldn't do that) I'd pay it forward instead.The recipients were very appreciative. See my May post for more.

Here's a quick pic of DS eating his "Bob Whip" before it disappeared last week:wizard:

As a follow-up to my voicemail that was played on the 6/26 podcast...there will be a group of us visiting WDW during the last week of August that would like to get together for an unofficial "Dole Whip for Bawb" Meet'n'Greet. We will need to narrow it down to a date between 8/24-8/31 and I am open to any and all suggestions on what would be the best way to do this. I was going to wait until early August to post something, but if we DISers are guilty of anything -- it's our need to plan!!! Also, Pete indicated they might be able to make it to our gathering..so let's keep our fingers crossed that we might have some "special guests". :thumbsup2

I am new to the dis site and to the podcast. I started listening to the podcast around the time of the death of your friend bob(bawb). I have been to disney 40 times or so since 1981 and have lots of great memories there with my kids. I thought I had done a lot at disney over the years but now realize how little I really knew about the place. I find Disney magical and from the tributes I read about your friend bob (bawb) I can tell how much he will be missed by all his friends and family. A measure of a great man is in how he has touch the lives of others and from what I have read bob(bawb) was truly a great man. I am sorry I never got to know him since I think it would have been and honor. I never have had a dole whip on all my trips but I will have one in honor of Bob (bawb) since I can see how much magic and joy he has brought into peoples lives.

I had my Dole Whip on Tuesday at Disneyland. I got the Dole Whip Float and walked down Main Street sharing with my mom and husband. One for me, One for you, One for you, One for me. I have to say I never likes Dole Whips when I tried them before, but this one seemed special. Now I will definitely get one every trip.

I have to say the line for Dole Whips on Saturday was so long. It was one of the longest lines in the park.


Here are the Dole Whip floats I picked up yesterday at Disneyland...and only 3 people ahead of me in line...must have been during the parade :rotfl:

I've known him since I was 11 and I'm 23 now so he may as well be! He is coming to Disney with me in January on the college program.

Sadly, his family just started listening to the podcast after my recommendation shortly before Bob's passing. Even so, Dole Whips are a true hidden gem that even matt, in his 10+ trips to Disney, did not know about! It was a good time, but boy did I get a sugar rush and then drop(I'm a little hypoglycemic) haha it was worth it though!

I'll be at WDW 8/16 - 8/27. I can't believe I'm not going to get to meet all of you but I will have my first dole whip in Bob's honor while we are there.

I'm sorry we're going to miss you. Take a look at the thread below -- sandyh67 is going to be there 8/20 @ 1pm...maybe you guys can have your own DWFB meet!

CRUD I'll be at EPCOT that day with reservations. I guess I'll have to have my DWFB with my family.

In 12 trips to the World, I've never had a Dole Whip. I'm there again in a little over a week and will gladly toast Bob with my first Dole Whip.

Sounds great Bozza -- will you be able to come to our meet on 8/30, or will you be toasting solo?

It wasn't a Disney World Dole Whip, but I still had one in Bawb's honor! We were at the Indiana State Fair on Sunday 8/10 and I partook of a Pineapple Whip!

I just got back from bringing a bunch of HS kids to the world from Houston. As trip guide, I made sure that one of the stops was to get a Pineapple float. Although skeptical at first... upon tasting the kids gave rave reviews. Final score... Dole Whip 10 - Skeptics 0 :yay:

Tomu, great pic! I don't think I will ever tire of seeing "have one for 'Bawb' " Dole Whip pics. They always make me smile thinking how 'Bawb' would have loved this thread.

I had a Dole Whip in honor of Bob yesterday, but at the Minnesota State Fair, not at WDW. They are so tasty that I forgot to take a picture of me and my Dole Whip, so this photo of the booth will have to suffice.

They have Dole Whips places other than WDW!!!! :)
I think it's great that Bawb is being honored in this way all over the country.

WOW is all I can really say! My wife introduced me to this board since I call her the Disney Queen. We love the dole whips! We will be down at the end of Oct. We are taking a friend with us that hasn't been since she was a child. Now I can introduce a new fan to the Bawb Whip! I'll be sure to post when we get back from our vacation.

He really must have been a great great person and I will be honored to represent him and his favorite treat.

Hope all approve!
