Disney World will have you in a summery mood in no time, thanks to its latest drink offering!
Not long ago, the park launched an alcoholic version of the park’s famous Dole Whip in the form of a Dole Whip Froscato (aka pineapple Dole Whip mixed with vodka and Moscato) — and now, The Walt Disney Company is bringing you another boozy, frosty blended beverage to love. Disney park fans, say hello to the Dole Whip Margarita.
According to the Disney Food Blog, this drink is exactly what it sounds like. It features Dole Whip lime flavor, Corazon Blanco Tequila, a lime garnish and a salted rim. You can choose between traditional salt or a spicy (Tajin chili-lime) version. Considering Dole Whip is typically made using pineapple, the lime provides a tart twist to this classic Disney treat that you never knew you needed.
The margarita can already be purchased at the Polynesian Village Resort’s Barefoot Pool Bar. It’ll also be soon available at the Oasis Bar and Grill at the Walt Disney World Resort, according to Disney Food Blog.
Delish reports that the drink will cost you $12.50. And based on the reviews from those who have tried it — it’s totally worth it.

It looks like Disney’s really outdone itself this time!
But if you can’t make the trip down to Florida to try this drink on-location at Disney World, don’t worry — that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the fun. This is the perfect drink to make for your next barbecue or other outdoor gathering.
You can take a more traditional Dole Whip approach and create a margarita that’s reminiscent of the Disney classic by pairing tequila with a frozen pineapple base. This recipe from Kitchen Sanctuary also calls for coconut cream, tequila and Cointreau. The gang’s all here!
In the end, you’ll wind up with the perfect summer cocktail.
Doesn’t it look absolutely delicious?
There’s also this recipe from Hip2Save, which uses frozen limeade concentrate with a creamy base, such as coconut cream or sweetened condensed milk, to achieve a copycat version of Disney’s lime-flavored Dole Whip concoction.
Hip2Save’s recipe is non-alcoholic, but you can spike it with the tequila and Cointreau in the above recipe if you want to make it more adult.
So, whether you try this drink out in person or make a version at home, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be enjoying this beverage all summer long!
