I don’t know who comes up with these things, but today, August 6, is National Root Beer Float Day. Google it. It’s true. In honor of this frosty treat of perfection we are happy to share with you some Root Beer Floats of the Disney Parks.
Our first float comes to you from the newly opened Ghirardelli Store in Disney California Adventure.
Ghirardelli uses hand scooped ice cream and serves their floats up in open-top plastic cups. You can opt for a cover, but not until you have a few sips/bites. It overflows quickly, so have your straw and spoon ready to take action!
Next up, I give you the “Route” Beer Float served over at Disney California Adventure’s Cars Land. You can find this one in the Ice Cream Cone (Cone #2) over at the Cozy Cone Motel!
Sally serves up her floats with soft served ice cream swirled into a clear dome topped plastic cup (unless you opt for the $9.50 souvenir version). I LOVE that the lids are already on. Much less messy. Especially for kids!
Heading over to Disneyland, a great place to relax and get a root beer float is at The Golden Horseshoe. Watch a show, drink a float, enjoy some air conditioning. Fantastic!
The Golden Horseshoe uses hand scooped Dreyer’s Ice Cream and Barq’s Root Beer to create their signature floats.
Served up in an open top plastic cup, The Golden Horseshoe is a great place to enjoy a Root Beer Float while you giggle to the tunes and jokes of its resident performers Billy Hill and the Hillbillies!
Over in Disney World, you can get Root Beer Floats at lots of counter- and quick-service locations, ice cream shops, and more! They’ll come in both soft-serve and hard-scooped ice cream versions!
Here’s a gorgeous hard-scooped ice cream version float from Fountainview Cafe in Epcot’s Future World!
And here’s a yummy soft-serve version from Storybook Treats in the Magic Kingdom!
Of course, you can get your floats with just about any flavor of soda-pop, so don’t feel hemmed in by Root Beer when you’re in the parks! (Then again, if you’re there today, you HAVE to get root beer since it’s National Root Beer Float Day. ;-D)
HAPPY NATIONAL ROOT BEER FLOAT DAY! Where do you pick up YOUR favorite Disney Root Beer Float?
