    Citrus swirls used to be great when it was mixed with real orange juice but it is nothing like it used to be orange and vanilla ice cream. Dole whip on the other hand is mixed with pineapple juice. Used to love citrus swirls but have to go with dole whip now

    Citrus swirls are again made with orange juice. For awhile they weren't but they changed back.

    I like the citrus swirl way better. But if youre still curious about the dole whip, I would get it swirled with vanilla. Its not as sour that way.

    Right! I know we may get caught up in our day, so I guess I should say, "which one should I try first in case I'm too stuffed to eat the second!"

    I love the Dole Whip float with a swirl of vanilla soft serve and dole whip but that is just me.

    I didn't like the Dole Whip, or the float, but I LOVED the Citrus Swirl. It was like a big creamsicle!

    Dole Whip all the way. The Citrus Swirl is okay, but too acidic for my tastes.

    I thought the Dole Whip was bland, so I will be passing that one up next time. I would like to try a Citrus Swirl if I get the chance. But there's always a :mickeybar if I don't.

    I liked the Citrus Swirl better. I didn't care for the Dole Whip float and plain Dole Whip is ok but not great IMO.

    I think they are both yummy, but the Citrus Swirl is the one I get the most often. It calls to me.

    Dole Whip Float!!! But you do have to really love pineapple lol! I don't really care for the Citrus Swirl. Yes, it tastes like a creamsicle, but I feel like you can get things with similar tastes just about anywhere...I had an alcoholic version that was to die for at the Fairmont in Maui...after that, there is no going back. Dole whips are something special I can only get at Disney :)

    So funny! Our ten year anniversary is next year and I was considering the Fairmont in Maui! We're not far from Chicago and the Fairmont is one of our favorites downtown :)

    Oh how wonderful! Congratulations!! :) Honestly, I have stayed at some very nice resort properties, and the Fairmont Kea Lani is my all-time fav. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about the property!:thumbsup2

    I haven't tried the citrus swirl, but I would still pick it over the Dole Whip.

    In my case, dole whip sucks ...:crazy2:

    I don't like pineapple but I love a citrus swirl! My hubby is the dole whip fan. Just bought him a soft serve machine and the dole pineapple mix for his birthday. :goodvibes
