Checking In On Aloha Isle For A Dole Whip

I have, on more than one occasion, been called a Disney purist. So when Disney announced that my beloved Sunshine Tree Terrace was trading places with Aloha Isle in 2015, I was less than thrilled. Last month I finally had the opportunity to stop in while at the Magic Kingdom and see what I thought of it for myself. Let's take a look at the new location Adventureland's Aloha Isle.

Disney History: Adventureland Then & Now

The Magic Carpets of Aladdin

Adventureland in Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, has always been a lush environment of tropical bliss with tall palm trees, exotic flowers, and the beat of native drums pounding in the distance. It's an exciting environment that not only takes the guest back in time but the landscape and attractions transport them to a different place.
