Believe me, I feel your pain (though, for me, it’s the option for Orange Swirl that I miss).
Well, one of our clever DFB Readers, Farley N., came up with a way to get that pineapple/vanilla combo at the park, and kindly shared the strategy with us on our DFB Facebook Page:
“When I learned they got rid of the vanilla option, instead of crying and stomping my feet (which is what I wanted to do) I went to Aloha Isle and ordered 2 Pineapple juices and then went over to Sunshine Tree Terrace and ordered 4 vanilla ice creams (in large drinking cups) and then combined. The guy at Aloha Isle was impressed. LOL.”
She even photo-documented the process!
I gotta say, that in-the-moment idea to order the vanilla soft-serve in large drinking cups? A stroke of genius…
Not bad! This is a great tactic for getting that tart-and-creamy vanilla and pineapple blend if you aren’t able to take time from your Magic Kingdom touring to head over to Pineapple Lanai at the Polynesian Village Resort (that’s the only spot where you can still get a pineapple-vanilla swirl, or the vanilla + pineapple juice float).
We’re still hopeful that the powers-that-be might read our pleas and bring back vanilla (and my vote for orange!) swirl options to Aloha Isle. But in the meantime, this idea ranks right there up with our Jungle Juice Float! Thanks so much for the great Snack Hack, Farley!
