PHOTOS: Aloha Isle and Dole Whips Swap Places with Sunshine Tree Terrace

Effective today, Sunshine Tree Terrace and the ever-popular Aloha Isle in Adventureland have switched places:


Sunshine Tree Terrace taking the place of Aloha Isle



The Little Orange Bird will move in soon, for now he is nowhere to be found




So, the Citrus Swirl is now over here


Aloha Isle by Dole is now next door to the Enchanted Tiki Room


And Dole Whips over here

The change is being made to alleviate the long lines for Aloha Isle and the over-crowding of the area outside of the former Adventureland Veranda (also formerly Tinker Bell’s Nook). Rumor has it that the former restaurant may be turned in a new table service dining location and removing the more popular Aloha Isle from the area would alleviate some of the pressure of having to share the restaurants promenade with a lengthy Dole Whip line. Only time will tell.

Where’s the Orange Bird?

The Disney Parks Blog says the Orange Bird will return within a few weeks. No reason was given for the temporary absence. (I’d love to see a small animatronic installed.)

No Soda at Aloha Isle? I liked to get a Sprite with Pineapple Dole Whip (I would substitute that for the vanilla) Float.
