Ten Best Frozen Drinks in Disney World

It’s getting hot out there, guys!

And sometimes, when it feels like it’s 100 degrees and you’re sweltering in line, you need more than a cold drink. You need a frozen drink!

Fortunately, there are lots of palate-pleasing options found in all corners of Disney World. And we’ve got great options whether you’d like to go alocholic or non-alcoholic! Refreshment is just a menu choice away…

Today, we’re taking a closer look at our very favorites!

Frozen Lemonade

Sweet-tart and chilly, Frozen Lemonade calls to mind seaside treats from our favorite resort towns. And there’s nothing like it for reviving you on a super hot, sticky Florida day.

The secret is in the balance. A too-sweet treat can leave you feeling not so great while you’re standing in the bright sun. That little kick of sour rounds out the flavors and makes the beverage a true refresher.

Raspberry Lemonade Slush at Magic Kingdom

If you’re a lover of frozen lemonade, I have great news for you: there are tons of different varieties to try around the parks and resorts! You could make your own personal frozen lemonade crawl. (Hey! That’s a great idea…)

One of our favorites is the Raspberry Lemonade Slush that you find at Magic Kingdom’s Cheshire Cafe, located on the outskirts of Fantasyland. You can find a similar drink across the castle hub at Sunshine Tree Terrace in Adventureland. And if you’re looking for frozen lemonade in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you can find an awesome, slurpee-type version at Herbie’s Drive-In.

If you prefer your frozen lemonade with a little kick, one of our favorite adult versions is available at Animal Kingdom’s Dino Diner Snacks. The Frozen Bacardi Raspberry Rum Lemonade has been inspiring random cravings for me ever since I tried it. :-)

Dole Whip Float

Part beverage, part Dole Whip soft serve, this is one of Disney’s classic must-eat treats! The Dole Whip Float combines sweet-tart soft serve pineapple goodness with pineapple juice to provide one of the most refreshing icy drinks in the Kingdom.

Breakfast of Champions!

You CAN get this with vanilla or orange dole whip as well — either choice will cut the tartness a bit. But I prefer pineapple-on-pineapple, myself! Find this great treat at Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland.

Ice Cream Martinis

Guest Review: Dino Diner Snacks at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

We’re welcoming back DFB Guest Author Joey Beyer with a guest review of the Dino Diner in Animal Kingdom’s DinoLand!

Howdy everyone! On a recent visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom I had the opportunity to try a couple of delicious items at the Dino Diner in DinoLand U.S.A. While Chester and Hester may seem like they are all fun and games, in Dinoland they are serious about snacking!

Dino Diner!

Atmosphere

The Dino Diner is located to the left of Primeval Whirl if you are facing the entrance to that attraction. The stand is designed as a concessions trailer that you would expect to see at a carnival or county fair, and fits perfectly with the theme in this area of the park.

Seating is minimal and there’s little shade, so this is more of a grab-and-go spot.

Eats

The menu here is small and features cinnamon glazed nuts, drinks, and a hot dog if you are looking for something a bit more filling.

But the BIG news is the frozen lemonade. New this year, Animal Kingdom has introduced several alcoholic frozen lemonades around the park at various locations. Dino Diner is one of the lucky ones, sporting the Frozen Bacardi Raspberry Rum Lemonade.

But first — the food. I am a big fan of the cinnamon glazed almonds but my partner in crime on this particular day preferred the pecans, so we went with those.

These can be found in all of the parks and many [Read more…]
