The heat of summer in central Florida is quickly approaching (believe it or not!), and we’ve found an icy drink in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom that is guaranteed to give you the chills. The Desert Pear Lemonade Slushy is sweet, tart, and totally refreshing. And you’ll find it at Golden Oak Outpost, current home of Chicken Nuggets and former home of Sweet Potato Nuggets!
Golden Oak Outpost is perfectly situated along the path between Adventureland and Frontierland (the Walt Disney World Railroad runs behind it on its way to Frontierland), so the slushy is a terrific treat to grab en route to the queue for Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, or Pirates of the Caribbean. Or just hang out in the small outdoor seating area (but note that this is right next to a smoking area, so if this will bother you, head across the way to the Pecos Bill’s seating area).
The Desert Pear Lemonade Slushy is $5.49 and DDP snack credit eligible — and it comes with a Mickey Straw! We like to think of the straw as a built-in souvenir, so that price doesn’t sting so much. 😉
The desert pear addition is definitely noticeable compared to straight lemonade found in other spots. It adds a pleasant level of sweetness and brightens the drink.
And because the desert pear balances out the tart lemonade, it’s even more refreshing.
We love that something as simple as a glass of frozen lemonade can still be interesting and a new flavor experience. So we’ll keep our eyes peeled, as always, for even more of these icy beverages as the mercury rises!
