A thread like this should have a picture to go along with it, so here's the Pineapple Float:

DH adores the pineapple float. To me the whips are just . . . ice cream. I had a vanilla whip for the first time at NYE . . . it was good, but not "drool-worthy."

I think the general consensus is to try one though!

I liked the pineapple vanilla swirl. Tried the float once, and thought it was too much sweet/pineapple. Possibly there was too much build up becuase nothing at Aloha Isle lived up to my expectations.

OP, no harm in trying one! I love them, DH can take them or leave them (which means, when I ask him if he wants one while I'm ordering he says "no", but still eats half of mine ). I will advise that while I loved the Dole Whip, I agree that the Dole Float took me to the moon and back

I have noticed multiple times people joining in on an "I love Dole Whip" thread agreeing how great they are, how much they love their Vanilla Dole Whip....and they don't mean a pineapple-vanilla swirl. I often wonder if they ever realized most people are specifically talking about the pineapple version, so on reading here and elsewhere about the "great Dole Whips" made a point to stop in for one...and not knowing, just ordered what they always do (vanilla/chocolate).

The first time I tried a "Dole Whip Float" after hearing all the hype about em here on the boards i kinda thought ehh. Didn't care for the pineapple swirl. Tossed it after a couple bites/slurps.

Then last trip I decided to try again and got the vanilla swirl with pineapple juice AND a pineapple spear! Dipped the pineapple into the swirl! Slurped up the juice Heaven!

Sounds like my husband's first trip to pick up Floats for us while we were waiting for Spectro. I'd always ordered them with no problem, but when talking to him I used the dis patented "Dole Whip" to reference my Dole Whip Floats/Pineapple Float.

He was handed every imaginable flavor of just plain soft serve. Asked the CM where the pineapple juice was, and the CM knew right away. Apparently internet slang has caused much confusion for many patrons.

Floats are only available in the MK

The soft serve is available in the MK and Captain Cook's at the Polynesian.

I love the Pineapple Dole Whip floats at MK. I may actually try the pineapple/vanilla swirl with pineapple juice this June instead of pineapple/pineapple.
If any of you that like the pineapple Dole Whip ever go to Oahu, Hawaii... the pineapple Dole Whips at the Dole plantation are even better than the ones at MK. And they are building the DVC resort on Oahu that will be opening soon... so you can get some Disney magic there, also!

I hope this doesn't sound like a silly question, but did you have a vanilla/pineapple swirl?

Because if you had a "vanilla whip", wouldn't that be just.....ice cream?

Same here.. i personally enjoyed drinking the pineapple juice more than the ice cream. DH on the other hand looooooves them! I'd rather use my snack credit on something else

I am glad I tried one but there is no way I am doing that again.
I, too, was underwhelmed, especially after all they hype on this board! Still, I tried it and glad I did, so I can now cross it off my list.

We've eaten the Dole Whip right at the Dole Plantation in Hawaii and to discover that delicious whip was magnificent. It is very yummy and my mouth is watering just thinking about it. In one more month we will be there and getting a Dole Whip is a must.
