Sweet, dreamy, creamy milkshakes. When you are craving one, nothing else will quite do. In honor of National Ice Cream month, it’s time to do another Disney Food Blog food crawl: MILKSHAKES!
Not surprisingly, some of my favorite milkshakes can be found right in Walt Disney World. If milkshakes are a favorite of yours, too, allow me to tempt you with a brand new food challenge — the Disney Food Blog Milkshake Crawl!
This one is a doozy! So if you break it up over a couple of days, we totally understand.
And be sure to let us know in the comments which milkshake is your favorite and which ones you highly recommend!
Cookies and Cream Milkshake at Plaza Restaurant
The Plaza Restaurant is one of my favorite table service spots in Magic Kingdom. It’s rarely super busy, and the prices are reasonable. As a bonus, there are some pretty amazing ice cream dessert options on the menu, thanks to the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor right next door.
My favorite beverage-meets-dessert options here are the Hand-Dipped Milkshakes.
Served in old-fashioned glasses, and topped with whipped cream and a cherry, these are just like the shakes I remember from when I was a kid. I recommend the Cookies and Cream. So good!
Bottomless Milkshakes at Whispering Canyon Cafe
Guests love Whispering Canyon Cafe for the amazing all-you-care-to-enjoy skillets at breakfast or supper time, as well as the crazy antics of the staff. (Don’t be surprised if you witness — or participate in — a stick horse race around the restaurant.) But another beloved menu item at Whispering Canyon are the Bottomless Milkshakes.
Served in a jelly jar (another fun throwback to childhood!), they come in your choice of vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry.
They’re garnished with sprinkles and a thick cap of whipped cream. And they’re truly — no-joke — all-you-can-drink! Get as many refills as you want!
Want to know something fun? They’re on the menu at breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
PB&J Milkshake at 50s Prime Time Cafe and the Tune-In Lounge
When it’s time for some good comfort food and I’m in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, no one does it better than 50s Prime Time Cafe!
With a slightly bossy staff (keep your elbows off that table!) and awesomely kitschy decor, this is one of my favorite spots to dine in all of Disney World. But they are also well known for their delicious Peanut Butter and Jelly Milkshake.
Made with a heaping helping peanut butter and grape jelly, it’s a fun new way to enjoy these classic favorites.
And this one comes to your table in the metal blender cup — also a fun touch! Get it to go at Tune-In Lounge next door!
If you can’t make it to 50s Prime Time today for your PB&J Milkshake, you can always make it yourself with our handy recipe!
Lots of Choices at Sci-Fi Dine-In
Head to Sci-Fi Dine-In for Disney Imagineering at its best.
You’ll dine under the “stars” as you watch clips of hilarious mid-century B movies. Seating will be at a picnic table, or maybe even a vintage convertible! All-American fare like the Picnic Burger make for fun meal options. But some of the best surprises at Sci-Fi are the milkshakes!
And the cool thing here is that you can choose from traditional shakes, like the Oreo Milkshake. Or if you’d like to take it up a notch, you can order a grown up version with alcohol.
Fun choices include Marsha’s Martian — a chocolate or vanilla shake mixed with Bailey’s Irish Cream and Kahlua. Or try a Space Monkey, a chocolate shake that includes Malibu Rum and Banana Liqueur.
If you’d like to stick with the awesome Oreo milkshake, have an Orbiting Oreo with Godiva Chocolate Liqueur!
Frozen Sunshine or Classic Milkshakes at Beaches and Cream
Another excellent spot for creamy, old-fashioned milkshake goodness is Beaches and Cream Soda Shop.
Beaches and Cream is an awesome spot for Burgers, and I absolutely love their Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup! But when it comes to milkshake time, I recommend their Malted Milkshakes. I’ll have chocolate, please!
This bright orange frozen drink is made with orange sherbet and seltzer water for a frothy beverage with a hint of bubbles. It’s a great alternative to other milk-heavy options.
Not-So-Classic Milkshakes at Beaches & Cream
If you want to enjoy a Beaches & Cream milkshake that’s not so classic, you’ve got to indulge in these loaded, over-the-top milkshakes that come topped with — seriously! — a whole cupcake or wedge of brownie! Get yours in chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla, and don’t forget to grab yourself a spoon, a stack of napkins, and maybe even a fork!
PB&J Part Two at The Fountain
Head over to Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort for the next entry in our food challenge: PB&J Milkshake, Part Two at The Fountain!
I love this spot for old-fashioned soda shop goodness and comforting food. Their chili cheese fries are not to be believed!
And while the PB&J Milkshake at 50s Prime looks sorta vanilla-y, this one is a complete showstopper!
It’s served with a bright red drizzle of strawberry sauce that turns it delightfully pink. And topped with Reese’s Pieces, the peanut butter flavor is fabulous, too.
If you’re looking to try something a little off-the-beaten path, order their amazing Vanilla Milkshake — with a side of Hot Fudge! We’re big fans of customization around here. 😉
Unbelievably thick and rich, this is just as fantastic as it looks.
Spiked Key Lime Sorbet Margarita at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill
Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill in Disney Springs made a big impression when it opened in late-2018, and one of the more intriguing options coming out of the restaurant’s Gelato Bar is the Key Lime Sorbet Margarita — a grown-up milkshake, if you will. I loved this, and the only reason I’ll skip it on my next visit is so I can try the other three adult sorbet beverages on the menu!
Frozen Hot Chocolate at Hilton Bonnet Creek
Finally, when you’re ready to lounge by the pool and enjoy an icy drink, head over to Hilton Bonnet Creek and stop by the resort’s pool bar, Beech. Enjoy the views of the beautiful pool and lazy river, and order the Frozen Hot Chocolate!
Made with ice cream, milk, and real hot chocolate, the flavor is deeper than a normal chocolate shake. You have to try this one!
And there you have it! This is the most fun you will ever have getting your daily dose of calcium. We recommend you buddy up for this dairy-rich challenge. You’ll still have more than enough to enjoy!
