This time every year my entire family takes an annual trip to Disneyland. We have been doing it as long as I can remember. The summer of 2020 will be the first time we miss it.
I have so many amazing memories from these trips. We take it very seriously, plan out our route to every ride and it’s timing on the app, secure our fast passes and map out every food stop. We arrive as the gates open to the park and then close it out with the fireworks at the end of the night. One huge totally Disney packed day filled with laughs, photos, rides, memories, sometimes a lost phone or one of the kids (or husbands) has a tantrum, churros and of course Dole Whips.
For those of you that may not know what a Dole Whip is you need to get with the program.. located on the Jungle River shores in Adventureland right outside The Enchanted Tiki Room at Disneyland Park is the Dole Whip stand- recently the park has expanded the area and built The Tropical Hideaway next door which hosts a bevy of extraordinary worldly eats. Menu items include chilled ramen salad, warm steamed bao buns, Sweet Pineapple Lumpia and the iconic Dole Whip. It’s a must-do when charting out your food stops.
The magical Dole Whip is a dairy free (yay) ice cream type pineapple delight served in a soft serve style swirl. When I think of Disneyland food Dole Whip’s and Churros are the creme de la creme of park culinary delights!
A few weeks ago Disneyland shared their Official Dole Whip recipe through their Disneyland app (which I am sharing at the end of the post) and I have been blending those babies up ever since.
It’s a little dose of Disney magic right in your own home.
Everything Disney makes me happy, so this week I decided to dress up for Disneyland anyway and share what I would have worn #WIWHW (is that a thing now?) to Disneyland this year.
I have to say, it totally boosted my mood! If you are a Disneyland aficionado like me I highly recommend donning your Disney best this week for an instant “Spoon Full of Sugar” to your day!
