A lot of foods like the Monte Cristo and churros(why not get one at Costco for like 2 bucks less? ) are overrated. Dole whips are not. PINEAPPLES ARE THE FRUIT OF THE GODS.
Don't confuse overpriced (which some would argue that in some way almost everything at DL is overpriced) with overrated.
There's no accounting for taste.
I do think the world is a better place with them.
Sense of humor check: If someone ran over your foot with a stroller, and the transgression were attributed to the stroller pusher trying to eat a Dole Whip while pushing the stroller, would you
A) Forgive them, they couldn't help it, they were in the throws of a DW induced mania, to which you could relate, then you show them the correct way to stroller push and eat a DW
B) Slap the stroller pusher and take their DW in compensation
C) Forgive them, they couldn't help it, anybody tasteless enough to buy one of those frozen pee-colored globs of goo must be incapable of taking responsibility for their own actions
D) Slap the stroller pusher, throw their DW in a nearby waste receptacle, and tell them the legend of the Fantasia ice cream .......

overpriced( what at disney isnt?) but not overated. however i do know of one person at least who has suggested a little rum in the pineapple juice wouldn't be too bad. I had my first one when I was 13 and always loved them. I was just sad that you couldn't get them in iowa somewhere. SO when I moved south to florida I was grateful WDW was nearby. I still don't get them on a regular basis, but I do love them and so do the kids. actually my daughter was the one who suggested the rum.
Hmmmm... I'm afraid to answer that question. The Tiki Gods are usually angered by "all the celebrating," it's best not to tempt fate and give an answer that wouldn't look favorably on the mighty Dole Gods and Goddesses.
What is overrated, anyway? There are only two places in the world where the Whip can be found: Anaheim, CA and the Dole Plantation in Hawaii. If anything's overrated, it's the Orville Popcorn. I love it, but man, even Albertson's has it on their shelves.
I like them but I don't think they're great.
I certainly wouldn't pass one up!!
And I don't like the float too much.
Good morning, son
In twenty years from now
Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
And I can tell you 'bout today
And how I picked you up and everything changed
It was pain
Sunny days and rain
I knew you'd feel the same things...
