Both are known as classic disney park treats, but how much do you really know about the Dole Whip and the Citrus Swirl? The Pineapple soft serve known as the Dole Whip actually came after the Citrus Swirl! The Citrus Swirl has been served in Adventureland at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World since the very start in 1971. Originally sponsored by the Florida Citrus Growers, the Sunshine Tree Terrace hosted this unique treat made up of vanilla soft serve and frozen orange juice. It was created just for the Central Florida park. This is also where the Orange Bird originates, and as far as I have found, you can't find a Citrus Swirl anywhere else. The Dole Whip wasn't served in Disneyland until sometime in the 1980s, years after the Dole food company began sponsoring Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room. It has since spread to multiple Disney Parks, Resorts, and Hotels across the world, but, the Dole Whip isn't unique to Disney. You can find Dole Whips served at your local Fro-Yo or Ice Cream establishment (in some cases). This is because Dole is the maker of the frozen treat and sells it to various establishments world wide, yet it's treated as the disney classic. That said, Dole Whip is vegan and gluten free, whereas the Citrus Swirl contains dairy. But... that has nothing to do with this poll... it's about taste this week. You tell us! Which is better?
Hi all! On behalf of the Events Team at Palace Network, I wanted to briefly share an update with you on our upcoming Day at Disney event and our Transportation and Ticketed Center (TTC) Opening Ceremony. Due to the recent influx of players and new visitors on our server, we have decided to make some modifications to our upcoming event schedules to best accommodate a large sum of guests without causing server performance issues. We want to welcome our guests with open arms and not take experiences away from you our players. We're actively coming up with solutions to issues that may arise because of large spikes in guest attendance. Since we didn't think it was fair to cancel the event for you all outright, we decided to instead alter the event. For starters, we will be renaming the event from "Day at Disney" to "A Day at Walt Disney World"! What does this mean for you? Well, this was originally going to be an event just in the Magic Kingdom. Instead, we have decided to build in more magic and spread the event out throughout Walt Disney World to not only help with performance issues but also to give you all a more exciting event! In terms of our TTC Opening Ceremony, a formal program has been postponed and this weekend we'll soft open TTC for guests to explore. We still want to celebrate the opening of TTC and the work of our builders and technicians, so we'll be properly celebrating the opening on Saturday with photo ops and scavenger hunts! Within the next few days, our NewTTC will be released to all of you! That's where the new A Day at WDW plan comes in! We are so excited for you all to experience this expanded event. You will be able to go to all of the four main parks in Walt Disney World and find hidden items hidden around the parks! These items will be placed in places like queues, the exits to attractions, and iconic locations around the parks. Along the way, you will get special prizes like tokens and in-game money so keep your eyes open! The entertainment won't stop there as select firework shows will play throughout the event. To review: - TTC will have a soft opening within the next few days. - "Day at Disney" will be renamed to "A Day at Walt Disney World" to reflect the change in scope to a network-wide event. - Instead of group rides and character interactions, you will be able to go on a scavenger hunt around the Walt Disney World parks. We're super excited for you all to experience this! Thank you for understanding and we hope to see you at "A Day at Walt Disney World" Saturday, April 11, beginning at 1:00 PM EST! - creatorforparks Community Events Administrator
This week's poll is all about the best ride in Tomorrowland (WDW). Tomorrowland opened with the Magic Kingdom in 1971 with a whopping two attractions: Grand Prix Raceway and the Skyway to Fantasyland... not really a land of Tomorrow. Still the space age, clean white architecture, thrived as more attractions joined the line up. If You Had Wings and Flight to the Moon were opened soon after opening day; however, the land truly didn't feel complete until 1975, when Space Mountain, the WED Way Peoplemover, Star Jets, and the Carousel of Progress opened. These classics still exists to this day, though in very different form. Space Mountain and the Carousel of Progress haven't seen many changes, but the WED Way Peoplemover and the Star Jets fell victim to the 90s Tomorrowland Overhaul. Though, the 90s Overhaul did breathe a new life into the land. It took over the clean white aesthetic and turned it into a more fantastical look at planet colonies and sci-fi. This brought with it classics of its own, such as: Extra Terrorestrial Alien Encounter and The Time Keeper. As we've seen, many attractions have come and gone in this land of Tomorrow. Ironic how much history a land of the future has. Yet, Tomorrowland continues to change, with the upcoming addition of Tron and the return of the clean white architecture. But Today, we're here to talk about the current in Tomorrowland. The best attraction currently in the land.
Which of the Magic Kingdom lands is the best? A loaded question to start off our Weekly Poll series! Each week we'll be posting a poll right here and you get to vote. We want to here your voices, and feel free to discuss with us.
