REVIEW: Eat A Pineapple Full of Dole Whip (and Coconut Rum) with the NEW Lapu Hula at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

Dole Whip has become one of the most popular Disney Parks snacks ever. But what do you do if you crave even more pineapple awesomeness? Head to Pineapple Lanai at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to take your love to the next level!


The snack and beverage kiosk is now offering the Lapu Hula, featuring Dole Whip served inside of a whole pineapple. And for those who enjoy their frosty treats on the more adult side, it also comes with a shot of coconut rum on the side.


And let us just say, this thing is massive.


Honestly, the shot of rum looks cute next to the towering pineapple.


At a price tag of $14.25, you do get way more Dole Whip than you would in your average cup. So if you’re someone who really loves Dole Whip, this is a good deal.


Beyond that, there isn’t anything special beyond the rum. The cup does allow you to add it to your liking, leave it out entirely if you prefer… or, just take a shot of it.


Plus, you get the cocktail umbrella, and if that doesn’t say a lazy day at the Polynesian, I don’t know what does.


As for the pineapple itself, it’s hollowed out inside to make room for the Dole Whip, but it does look like there’s enough to scrape out if you’re looking for an extra snack.


It has a thick bottom, acting as a weight so it doesn’t tip over when you put liquid or ice cream in it. (Our reporter’s finger marks where the hollow area ends.) All in all, if you don’t mind the price, it’s a neat way to enhance your visit to the resort.
