Cheers To The Dole Whip Mimosa From Wine Bar George

Dole Whip is a Disney tradition that brings fans flocking every time it gets served up a brand new way. Over the years this cold creamy pineapple soft serve has been served plain, in floats, on top of cake, with a shot of rum, and blended up as a smoothie - sometimes with rum.

However in this girl's opinion Wine Bar George has created the most exciting Dole Whip Drink of all, the Dole Whip Mimosa.

French Macarons From Amorette’s Patisserie

One of my favorite types of cookie is the French Macaron. These delicate confections have been gaining popularity in the US since around 2010, and Disney has several places you can pick up a box.
