What could possibly be better than a Dole Whip on a hot day? A Dole Whip with rum, that’s what! Yes, you can actually get the iconic Disney treat mixed with booze, and it sounds like total #summergoals.
Dole Whip has been served at both Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and Disneyland in Anaheim, California, for decades, and while alcohol used to be scarce at Disney properties, that’s all changed. Now that adult beverages are commonplace at many Disney Parks — and because pineapple soft-serve paired with rum is such a natural combination — you can get this match made in heaven at both Disneyland and Disney World.
Hunting it down is a bit of a challenge because it’s not found in the places you might think to check first, like Aloha Isle in the Magic Kingdom or the Tiki Juice Bar at Disneyland Park, as those parks are booze-free.
However, there are a few spots where you can get your hands on the ultimate frozen tropical cocktail.
1. Tamu Tamu Refreshments
While in the Africa section of Animal Kingdom at Disney World, swing by this counter service location for adult Dole Whips made with dark or coconut rum for $7.50. If you want to keep it classic, you can get a virgin Dole Whip sans booze, of course.

2. The Coffee House
The Coffee House at the Disneyland Hotel is where you can get your hands on a Dole Whip float with rum. This Twitter user recommends using lighter rum for the best flavor profile:
Rum and dole whip from Disneyland Hotel’s Coffee House! Chose the lighter rum, which blends better w/the pineapple. And OF COURSE grabbed a Tahin packet! #disneyfoodblog pic.twitter.com/1fDpgQjkhT

3. Pineapple Promenade
You can also get a Dole Whip for grownups at Epcot, but there’s a catch: It’s only available at the annual Flower and Garden Festival at the Pineapple Promenade Booth. Is it wrong if I plan an Epcot trip around this fact?
Here’s a photo of this delicious-looking concoction, shared on Twitter by MickeyXtreme.net:

Although not technically Dole Whip, there are other pineapple-and-booze combinations to be found throughout Disneyland and Disney World, like the Halfpipe at the All-Star Sports Resort at Disney World, which is made of Captain Morgan spiced rum mixed with a pineapple smoothie.
