I Can’t Believe IT! MORE Citrus Swirl NEWS From Magic Kingdom!

Let’s take things waaaay back… to, like, this past Saturday.

We were surprised — and, honestly, a little dismayed — to learn that the iconic Citrus Swirl had been removed from the menu at Magic Kingdom’s Sunshine Tree Terrace.

Magic Kingdom Pecos Bill’s Guacamole Status Update

You know how some people say “If you don’t like the weather, wait a few minutes”? We feel like the Magic Kingdom is on a race to out-pace Mother Nature when it comes to making changes. Because even though we just brought you What’s New from the Magic Kingdom a few days ago, we have more to add!

First we’re moseying over to Pecos Bill’s Tall Tale Inn and Cafe where there are a couple of big menu changes to note. First, the Southwest Angus Burger is off the menu — following in the footsteps of the Taco Burger, which disappeared from the menu last month! The only remaining burger at Peco Bill’s is the Bacon Cheeseburger.

Aah, Adventureland! It’s where we go to seek mystery, intrigue, and… Dole Whip! But you’ll find much more than the signature Pineapple Soft Serve in Adventureland, which is home to another beloved cold citrus treat. And with the addition of the Jungle Navigation Co., Ltd. Skipper Canteen in late 2015 (Happy Second Birthday, Skipper Canteen!), Adventureland has its own table service restaurant as well. But that’s not all, so today we’re taking you to ALL the food stops in Adventureland! [Read more…]

News: Citrus Swirl Orange Float at Sunshine Tree Terrace in Disney World

WOW! Just two weeks ago we broke the news that Vanilla Dole Whip had returned to Aloha Isle.

And now we’ve got MORE news regarding another Adventureland iconic snack…

It’s the Citrus Swirl from Sunshine Tree Terrace!

The tart orange slush (like frozen OJ) swirled with vanilla soft serve just got a MAJOR update.

Because you can now get a Citrus Swirl Orange Float!

Secret Menu: Disney World Citrus Swirl…JUST THE CITRUS!!!!

Update: Thanks to our commenters for letting us know that some cast members simply won’t/can’t fulfill this request without a manager’s approval. Good luck!

I’ve always loved the Citrus Swirl at Magic Kingdom’s Sunshine Tree Terrace. Who doesn’t? If you haven’t had one — it’s basically frozen orange juice swirled with vanilla soft serve. And it’s everything.

And even though there was a time where it was off the menu (we call those the “unmagical” days…and then there were the SUPER “unmagical” days when they SAID they brought it back, but it was just orange soft serve twisted with vanilla. NOT. THE. SAME.), it’s back again and has been for a while, thank goodness.

But today we’re not just talking about your run-of-the-mill Citrus Swirl. No sir. We’ve got a twist (see what I did there? of course you did.) that I think some of you will really like. ;-D Maybe not all of you. Maybe just a few of you. But if you’re as excited about this as I am, we’re clearly best friends and we need to hang out.

First — you’ve got to make your way to Sunshine Tree Terrace. It sits right at the entrance to Adventureland, so it’s pretty easy to find. OH, and if this looks like Aloha Isle to you, remember that the two traded places a while back. ;-)
