Dole Whips are non-dairy.

I didn't notice any bad smells, but then we didn't hang around there to eat ours. Like some others mentioned, the cigarette smoke in the general area doesn't make the area a place that we linger around to eat our desserts. We like to take ours to the Sleepy Hollow area.

The female gingko plant smells exactly like vomit. We smelled it at the MO Botanical Gardens and thought someone had been sick. They told us the females do that.

We were there last weekend and I definitely noticed it waiting in line for a Dole Whip. It's a sour milk / wet garbagey smell. It was pretty foul, but not bad enough to stop me from waiting in line for 15 minutes!

Don't bother mentioning it to a custodial CM, look for a manager (name tag with business casual attire). If this many people have noticed it, it needs to be dealt with.

Didn't notice a garbage smell when we were at the MK on Tuesday, did notice that the entire area of Adventureland smelt like cigarette smoke.

When a frozen dessert is designated "non-dairy," it means that the
the soft serve is non-dairy.

It is not mixed with "ice cream."

The soft serve is a product similar to that shown below-

~Technically, Dole Whips can be considered a dairy product -- just because a product is labeled as non-dairy does not equate to it being entirely void of any dairy component(s) -- it can just mean that there is a very low percentage of dairy ingredient(s). Specifically, Dole Whips contain the ingredient Sodium Caseinate - (A Milk Derivative) that comes from the milk protein Casein. The majority of individuals with milk allergies may suffer a severe allergic reaction when exposed to Casein. With that said, Dole Whips are lactose free, so most people who suffer from lactose intolerance will not experience any symptoms. Milk allergies (allergic) and lactose intolerance (non-allergic) are different. Those with milk allergies know exactly what to look for, as most products with Casein are legally labeled as non dairy, in part, due to the low percentage of dairy in the product. Just sayin'...

The plants near Aloha Isle are "non-vomit."

After all of the years they have been serving Dole Whips out of this building, I am sure that the sugar, fruit, and milk products are taking the toll on the area. A really good flushing is needed. So Just (don't) hold your breath. TDBIASWS.

We also noticed the smell on our September visit this year. It was fine the first week, but the second/third week we were there it really did stink. However it cannot be the plants as once we had our whip/float, we always went and sat on the concrete 'benches' at the foliage and it was fine there.

By the way, they took all the plants out of that bed during our last week there and had planted some little shrubs/flowers in there and it made no difference.

I did smell it too and I also came to this conclusion.

Sad to say I noticed this on our September trip. I got on line and then decided not to get one since it smelled so bad like vomit.
