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

Looking for a new entry on your Drinking Around the World card? THE newest frozen drink concoction in Disney World can be found — where else? — World Showcase!

Head to Epcot’s newest eatery, L’Artisan des Glaces in the France Pavilion for the beautiful and crave-inspiring Ice Cream Martini.

Review: Meatball Cone at Walt Disney World’s Downtown Disney

We first told you in March that some favorite Cone-Shaped Foods from Disney California Adventure had arrived in Walt Disney World!

WDWDowntown tweeted about the new menu items today

This is a trend that we’ve been seeing more and more lately. When a new, “unique” food is introduced at one of the parks, it usually shows up on the other coast with a different name or themeing. Case in point: Red’s Apple Freeze at California Adventure’s Cozy Cone Motel has morphed into Le Fou’s Brew at Gaston’s Tavern in Magic Kingdom’s New Fantasyland.

Cones Come to Disney World!

And now, we’re seeing the migration East of the cone foods — sadly sans the awesome Cars themeing. So you’d better believe that I made a special trip over to Downtown Disney’s Marketplace Snacks to check them out!

Two new cones replace a couple of the more upscale “gourmet” hot dog selections that were previously available here. If you’re a big fan of the Philly Cheesesteak Dog or the Barbecued Pork and Coleslaw Dog, you’ll have to enjoy them elsewhere. (At our last check, the Philly Cheesesteak Dog could still be found at Magic Kingdom’s Lunching Pad, while you can head to Casey’s Corner for the Barbecue Pork Coleslaw Dog.)

While that’s all good, I was here for one reason: those cones. Some have heralded cones as the blessed return of the Disney handwich.

The Cones come with two different fillings: the Chili Cone Queso and the Meatball Cone.

Since I’m a big fan of bread bowls, I thought they both looked pretty amazing. So, which one did I try on this first outing?

They both sounded pretty awesome, but since we already showed you the Chili Cone Queso, I opted for the [Read more…]
