The dole float was pretty good and I would have it agagin, but the whip by itself is just not that great...IMO..

    Also, while filling the whips they leave this huge hole in the middle of them...screwing people...IMO..they cliam to weigh them, but we watched and they were not weighing them....Just somethign we noticed as we sat and had our whips and floats...
    lol, why would they weigh every individual whip and float they made, when they have very rushed and angry guests waiting in half and hour long lines?

    If anything that probably means that the CMs are supposed to know how heavy it should feel in their hand when they make it. But, considering how poorly hiring and constant CMs are for Disney, it's possible that the CMs working the Tiki Juice Bar don't care. It's a shame...about a year ago they appeared to be far more jovial. Now whenever I go get a dole whip, they look like they want to kill somebody :/

    I can see both sides to this. Basically it depends on your expectations.
    If they're sky high ('best food ever"), then you're going to be disappointed.
    If you're just expecting softserve ice cream (and you like pineapple), the I think
    you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    IMHO, I really think DW is really ambrosia! On a nice hot day, it's really awesome
    to get some and eat it while waiting for Tiki (which is one of my favorite
    attractions even before the 50s rehab).

    I rarely eat churros in DL. Mainly because there are places (Mexican eateries,
    carts, flea markets) where you can get even fresher ones.

    all I know is my Father felt they should not be hollow in the middle, asked the girl, she said they weighed everyone of them. He sat back down, watched her weight about 5, but then she stopped.....I didn't really care, but I had a float...LOL....he'll probaby just wait at gibson girl next time...

    They may not be the tastiest dessert in the world, but they are pretty good! Last time I went with my two friends we shared one about 1 hour before Magic Kingdom was about to close and it was nice ending to the day.

    Nothing like getting one from the inside line then eating it during the Tiki show. We really do love them; nice alternative to regular frozen treats.

    I think that the Floats are awesome!

    I agree about eating special stuff that you can only get on the inside - I go for a Tigger Tail (which you can only get in Pooh's Corner candy shop) almost every time I go!

    ...puttin' in my 2 cents (for the $4.50 I spend each time on a Dole Whip Float!)
