Dole Whip & Citrus Swirl
Walt Disney World:
What's the difference?
Since i won't be returning to WDW for a while :( (Unless i end up applying for the international program next year) can someone enlighten me on the difference between a dole whip and a citrus swirl, sadly I've only had the chance to try the delicious treat known as dole whip

The primary differences, as far as I know are these: Dole Whip is a non-dairy frozen pineapple treat that you can get swirled with vanilla, and or on a float of pineapple juice. Citrus Swirl is frozen orange juice swirled with vanilla soft serve.

But you can get orange dole whip too, at least at Magic Kingdom. When you order a Dole Whip there they ask you "Pineapple, orange, or vanilla?" So it's just an orange dole whip then?

The biggest difference is the Pineapple Dole Whip FLOAT - pineapple soft serve in pineapple juice. It may be the single greatest dessert item ever concocted!
In the picture following, the Float is the one on the left:
I think the orange dole whip is regular orange soft serve.
based on what i learned in the small park i work at, both are dole whip flavors. both of the ones at the park i work at are nondairy. only the pineapple are made into floats.
Skipper has it.
BTW, here's a photo of the Citrus Swirl.
LOL The size of my belly will tell you I am the man to know about the snacks...
Aren't there few places to pick up these tasty treats? From the sound of it, they aren't wide-spread. Or are they?
Disney likes to say that there are only four places to get a Dole-whip. Adventurelands in DLR and MK, the Polynesian and Hawaii. However, Dole-whips have been popping up at fairs and carnivals. The Citrus Swirl I only know to be found in Adventureland in MK.
ok, to be fair the citrus swirl does look pretty awesome. I can't wait to get my hands on one sooner or later!
Quick Question: Where in Adventureland can I get a Citrus Swirl?
Sunshine Tree Terrace, which is attached to the Tiki Room since it was the food booth for the Florida Citrus Growers who sponsored the Tiki Room and used the Orange Bird as the mascot.
On that note, it's on the permanent menu now, along with some tasty and upscale quick service food items. It went from a seasonal stand to help with Dolewhip lines to being an awesome food counter of its own.
Thanks Skipper. Can't wait to try it!
