Ahhh, the infamous Beverly soda. You know the one — it’s the bitter soda from Italy that’s located in Club Cool in Epcot’s Future World at Walt Disney World. The one you trick your friends into drinking as you photograph their reactions for posterity. Yeah, that Beverly.
Well this one is interesting! Orange and vanilla soft serve with…sparkling apple cider?! Yep, that’s what we found today at Magic Kingdom’s Sunshine Tree Terrace under the fun moniker “FOMOsa!”
For those who don’t know, FOMO stands for “Fear of Missing Out,” and Disney’s hoping that when you see someone walking by with this champagne flute full of goodness, you’ll definitely experience some serious FOMO!
So, if you pull up a bar stool at the Dawa Bar in Disney’s Animal Kingdom (as you should), and you order a new Ngumu specialty cocktail, can you guess what you’ll receive?
You’ll be getting JUNGLE JUICE, spiked with Meyer’s Dark Rum: it’s the new Ngumu Jungle Juice!
Now, you may know Jungle Juice — served around Animal Kingdom and also Animal Kingdom Lodge in spots like Boma — by one or more of its other names. It’s know as Moonshine for breakfast at Trail’s End, and Liliko’i Juice at ‘Ohana’s Best Friend’s Breakfast and Kona Cafe. Of course, it’s also known as POG Juice at those locations, which stand for the ingredients used in the drink no matter the name: Passion Fruit, Orange, and Guava juices! [Read more…]
Since Pandora — The World of AVATAR opened last year in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we’ve been watching the treats at the land’s beverage and snack stand, Pongu Pongu.
Pongu Pongu’s signature snack, Pongu Lumpia, is a pineapple and cream cheese-filled spring roll. It’s been a love/hate snack since some people don’t like the texture — but I think it’s great! But something that does tend to be a big favorite among many is the Night Blossom. This frozen beverage layers apple with desert pear and limeade and is topped with passion fruit popping pearls.
It’s bright and beautiful, both in color and flavor, and we’ve recommended it from the first as one of the best non-alcoholic drink options not only in Animal Kingdom, but in the whole of Disney World.
Wait… did I say “non-alcoholic”? Yes I did… because it is. But NOW, you can also order up a RUM BLOSSOM, which adds Bacardi Superior Rum to the drink!
