Always get the pineapple, other flavors can be found anywhere in similar products. There are 2 types of Dole Whip, a simple cup of Dole Whip or a float variety. I recommend the cup type first and get the float on next visit. Some people get really bothered by the pineapple taste explosion.

Go for the orange -- it's the original :-). I was shocked the first time I went looking for the orange swirls of my childhood and could only find the pale pineapple imitator. I was very happy to see the return of that silly orange bird!

At WDW, there is pineapple float at the Aloha Isle stand. Tis very refreshing.

I say make room for all of them! Get a pineapple from Aloha, then walk over to Sunshine Tree Terrace and snag a citrus swirl and an iced coffee swirl!

Never had an orange from Aloha, but imagine its the same as a citrus from Sunshine.

Ok.....So I just woke up from fainting, but I think Pineapple is the best (or the most unique)

WHAT?! Never heard of other flavors. Here in California at Disneyland they only have pineapple flavor.

Pineapple float. And they'd better give you a little paper umbrella, too.

What's the difference between Dole Whip Soft-serve and Dole Whip Soft-serve Swirl?

From Anthony Murphy

The soft serve is one flavor while the swirl is usually half vanilla, half other (pineapple, orange). Personally, I enjoy the swirl a little more than the full on soft serve. I love Dole Whip, but it can sometimes been very sweet and rich. The Vanilla cuts down on this.

I have had both orange and pineapple and I would go with the pineapple just for the novelty. Don't get me wrong, Orange is excellent too, but where else can you get Pineapple Soft Serve. Strangely enough, this is also one of the more healthier snacks you could have at the Magic Kingdom.

Believe it or not, Anthony, there's an answer to your rhetorical question: "Where else can you get pineapple soft serve?"

Kennywood. At least, as of last September.

my personal favorite is the Pineapple... but I've never had the orange and would imagine that it would taste like a Dreamcycle. The vanilla is also good. You can not only get it at Aloha Cafe in Adventureland, but at counter service establishment at the Polynesian... they don't have orange, though!
