It’s time to take a quick trip to Downtown Disney in Disney World to check out a great way to cool your jets while you’re in Orlando this Summer!
Downtown Disney Italian Ice Stand
You may walk right past this kiosk in Downtown Disney, but it’s worth stopping during those hot Florida days! The Italian Ice stand is located near the middle of Downtown Disney’s West Side between the Characters in Flight Attraction and the bridge to Pleasure Island.
They offer six different flavors of Italian ice in three different sizes. Don’t you just love when a treat is fat free AND delicious?!
On our visit, we sampled the Tie Dye, which was a mixture of three different flavors — Blue Raspberry, Lemonade, and Lime.
Not only was this very pretty — the ice had very small crystals, which resulted in a smooth texture. And the choice of flavor was perfect — the blend of citrus and blue raspberry was uber refreshing in the hot Florida sun!
They also offered three different types of Churros, including two FILLED versions — Bavarian Cream Filled, Dulce De Leche (Caramel), and King Cinnamon & Sugar. They smelled amazing!
Be sure to let us know if you’ve tried the filled versions! They sound sooo good!
Now, here’s a little update from Downtown Disney that I really wanted to share with you! I knew I had to get some pics when we spotted this one.
The food truck trend has really rolled into Disney World! Food trucks have been seen at Disney’s Wide World of Sports, and now this Rolling Taco Truck has moved into Downtown Disney!
Perhaps this is our first glimpse of the potential food truck row that might be added to the new Disney Springs area of Downtown Disney??
While the Taco Truck was closed during my visit, I can’t wait to stop back and give it a try!
