An Incredible Summer kicked off all over Disney World at the end of May, and the Incredible Tomorrowland Expo in Magic Kingdom is still going strong as part of the event!
We tried all the specialty snacks available throughout Tomorrowland for the occasion. But two items were delayed upon the opening, so we’re back at Cool Ship to try Violet’s Force Field Punch and Dash’s Super Lemonade!
As you can see, these drinks come complete with bubbling and smoke effects! But first, the basics: Violet’s Force Field Punch is made of VitaminWater in Acai-Blueberry-Pomegranate with blood orange and blueberry boba balls (popping pearls).
And Dash’s Super Lemonade is Lemonade with Hawaiian Island a blueberry boba balls.
But the main things everyone is interested in upon seeing the menu are the bubbling and smoke effects, which come by way of dry ice at the bottom of a special glass.
We also encountered this effect recently at Lamplight Lounge on Pixar Pier in Disney California Adventure.
It’s really fun… but here’s the rest of the story. Both drinks tasted fine — fruity, cool, and refreshing as you’d expect.
But at $6.99 a pop, they’re expensive for what you actually get in terms of a drinking beverage.
Like, these are gone after a good couple of sips, and you have to keep in mind that a portion of the special glasses is blocked off by a barrier to keep the dry ice on the bottom to give the special effect.
And a couple of other things to note: first, the Disney menu pictures show a whole bunch-a boba balls. In reality? There were about six. Over at Pixar Pier there were a LOT of popping pearls in the drinks, so I’m hoping this changes in WDW soon.
And second, Cool Ship didn’t have large enough straws for the popping bubbles, so they’re kind of stuck at the end of the drink.
Cute idea. But is it worth it? Maybe not for you, but your KIDS are going to LOVE THIS.
Other Incredible Summer offerings this year include Donald’s Dino-Bash in Animal Kingdom, and Guardians of the Galaxy-themed concerts in Epcot. And, of course, the biggest event of the summer — the opening of Toy Story Land — JUST took place last weekend so you can Play Big as part of the Incredible Summer in Disney World!
