Has anyone done character dining at Ariel's Grotto? We have reservations for April, just wondering what to expect. And what exactly is a Dole Whip?? :)

A dole whip kinda tastes like a pineapple frozen yogurt but more airy and it is non-dairy. You buy it from the stand at the tiki room. - Polkadobo  384.7 #583 10:29PM
expect the middle to be hollow I always feel jipped when I eat one - Brently  247.2 #1391 10:35PM
I think sue is lactoseintolerant and it still made her sick...so beware! - MayBie  1885.6 #90 11:12PM
Yes it did. Lol - SueBayou  2019.0 #78 11:55PM
Because it still has lactose in it and milk bi-products. Same with Churros and Corn Dogs. - tiggertwin  331.9 #736 12:08AM
Dole Whip = Heaven :) - HarvesterProducts  261.6 #1240 12:06AM
Dole Whip = a lil piece of heaven!! ;-) - disneymomma1  325.8 #772 6:44AM

At Ariel's the food is has improved over the years,good not great, you get 5 princesses and a meal. Much better that standing in line for 2 hours at fantasie fare. - Irisheyes  272.7 #1143 10:34PM
That is great news!! I've been watching the wait times for the princess faire... No bueno. Lol. :) this will b my daughters 1st Disneyland visit. - MariaR  183.9 #2199 10:36PM
I took my wife to Ariels grotto for our aniv. It was fun even though a little awkward since every one had little girls with them and it was just us thrown in the bunch. Each princess will come around to each table and when you first go down stairs you take a pro photo with one of them and they will bring the picture by your table to sell it to you if you want it. - Kontorted  183.9 #2201 11:03PM
The groto is a definite must! She will love it. You get a 3 course meal which is decent. While you are eating 4 princess's will come to the table and do a meet and greet. Your little one can hug them, take pics, and chat with them for a few minutes. Way better than waiting in that faire line! - ceecee32  187.6 #2156 12:02AM
This is EXACTLY what I was hoping for!! :) I'm even more excited than she is I think. Lol - MariaR  183.9 #2199 11:51PM
I love the food at Ariel's grotto, the chicken and tri tip are good and my kids love the shells and cheese, but you are really paying for the character experience. To have the princesses come to your table and spend quality time with your kids signing autographs and takin I tires without waiting in line or being rushed is priceless! - akpoppins  263.8 #1224 6:06AM
Princess Aurora even remembered my sons name the two nights before at Goofys Kitchen. You really are paying for the Princesses but the food is really good I had the tri-tip and my wife had the pasta. - BANGARANG707  253.5 #1317 6:10AM
The tri tip is the best! The princesses even take time to hang out at tables where there are no kids and treat the adults just the same. They are great! - Seacow  486.1 #437 6:18AM

Dole whip is ok, buy 1 and split it with your number 2. Or else it'll leave your palate raw...just too much of a good thing. No idea how The Grotto is but going to try it sometime soon. - Art2D2  211.9 #1849 10:39PM

Imagine a creamy pineapple soft serve foster freeze in a cup. Can also get it as a float with pineapple juice added. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 10:40PM
The float is the best! So yummy! - Fruitbythefoot  33.4 #5681 11:10PM
I went to Ariel's grotto over the summer . It was pretty good but I prefer other food places in the park. Are you doing the world of color dining there ? - disneydayandnight  121.2 #3206 11:06PM
No. We are doing lunch with the princesses. My daughter is turning 4 and I think she'll enjoy it. - MariaR  183.9 #2199 11:48PM

Dole whip is a magical pineapple fluff that melts in your mouth...(because It's also kind of like ice cream! :)...) - Vron  3.4 #30600 5:55AM
Heard the grotto is top notch!!! - VADERonSOARIN  543.0 #378 6:03AM
