It may not be summer, but Disney is ready to keep that watermelon…sugar…high going at Disney Springs. Today, a new Secret Menu Dole Whip creation appeared: “Minnie’s Dole Whip Watermelon Cup” to celebrate National Polka Dot Day and you know Minnie loves to Rock the Dots. This new snack appeared today and is ONLY available through January 31st, 2021.
UPDATE: for the month of February, this item has now become a Strawberry Dole Whip mixed with chocolate soft serve. You can order the strawberry by itself or add to a float/slushie as noted below with the Watermelon.
What is Minnie’s Dole Whip Watermelon Cup?
The Minnie Cup as it comes features Pineapple mousse, strawberry crispy pearls, the Watermelon Dole Whip, and a chocolate Minnie bow on top. Before you get too excited, we need to make some changes to keep this item vegan. But still – WATERMELON DOLE WHIP! Keep reading to see how to order.
Where to order:
First, you’ll need to know where to get this new beauty. Head over to the Marketplace section of Disney Springs, near Ghirardelli and Dockside Margaritas. You’ll find this at Marketplace Snacks, a location that features regular Dole Whip, floats, slushies, and “adult” Dole Whips with Malibu Coconut Rum or Captain Morgan Spiced Rum added.
How to Order:
We looked at the ingredients list for every item in this dish, and the Watermelon Dole Whip is the only completely vegan part. In fact, the mousse is full of dairy AND egg yolks, which is disappointing since Dole Whip is so known for being dairy-free on its own. Rather than ordering Minnie’s Watermelon Dole Whip Cup, just order the Dole Whip by itself and you’ll be good to go. The great part is you only have to pay $4.99 for the Dole Whip without the extras.
Additionally, since the slushies, pineapple juice for floats, and rum are already vegan, you can make your own creations using the Watermelon Dole Whip!

Let us know if you try any unique creations with this new Watermelon Dole Whip flavor! And you’re welcome for getting Harry Styles stuck in your head! 😉
