In case you haven’t visited any social media channel lately, the NEW Disney color trend — Arendelle Aqua — has officially launched in Disney World and Disneyland.
While we’ve enjoyed checking out all the new merchandise (like the GORGEOUS new Minnie Ears), we also tried EVERY. SINGLE. Arendelle Aqua treat we could find! Join us on a Frozen-themed journey through every Arendelle Aqua cupcake, slush, and treat we’ve found in Disney World and Disneyland.
And head up guys! There are a few treats that aren’t available just yet, so we’ll tell you about those as well. Let’s get started!
Available Now in Epcot
The Arendelle Aqua Pearl Cupcake is a bit similar in look and in taste to the popular Rose Gold Cupcake and consists of yellow cake, Nutella filling, a mountain of vanilla buttercream, and a fondant bow and ears.
While we enjoyed the cake, filling, and frosting (though it certainly was VERY sweet), we weren’t fans of the fondant bow and ears (but who cares when they look so cute??). You can grab this cupcake for $5.49 or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit!
You’ll also find the Arendelle Aqua Frozen Lemonade at Sunshine Seasons. It’s so pretty, don’t you think?
We actually chose to add Bacardi Raspberry Rum to our lemonade, which features Monin Cotton Candy Syrup. This slush was super refreshing, tart, and super photogenic to boot! If you decide to try it out, be sure to mix it up before you drink it so the flavors blend properly otherwise you might get a sip full of sugary sweet syrup like we did!
While you can get the non-alcoholic Arendelle Aqua Frozen Lemonade for $6.49 (or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit), our boozy version was $11.25.
Norway Beer Cart
At the Norway Beer Cart, you can try the Frozen Arendelle Aqua Lemonade for $5.25. The frozen lemonade is mixed with passion fruit and pineapple (some of our favorite fruity flavors).
Even if you don’t like passion fruit normally, this drink is AH-MAZING! The tart lemonade balances the passion fruit and pineapple flavors, blending them all together in a slightly sweet, but definitely mouth-puckering taste. If you like tart frozen drinks, you’ll want to take a sip of the Frozen Arendelle Aqua Lemonade! Plus — LOOK at the gah-ooooorgeous color!!
Yorkshire County Fish Shop
In the UK Pavilion, we discovered the adorable (and yummy!) Arendelle Aqua Victoria Sponge Cake at Yorkshire County Fish Shop. This is a classic sponge cake with a bit of Arendelle Aqua-colored (though the color is a bit inconsistent, no?) icing. We LOVED the light and airy texture of the cake.
The icing was a little too sweet for us, but luckily there wasn’t much of it. We did, however, thoroughly enjoy the strawberry jam filling!
Block & Hans
We hope you like Frozen-themed slushes as much as we do because the American Adventure Pavilion’s Block & Hans is offering a DIFFERENT Arendelle Aqua Lemonade! This boozy beverage combines frozen lemonade with Monin Cotton Candy and Ole Smoky Blackberry Moonshine.
The cotton candy flavor was REALLY overpowered by the moonshine, but in a good way! You could still taste a hint of the cotton candy, but it was very light — basically an after note.
Overall, we enjoyed this simple and refreshing drink. According to Cast Members, a non-alcoholic version should become available soon, so keep an eye out for it!
Available Now in Magic Kingdom
Let’s head on over to Magic Kingdom, where you can find the positively adorable Arendelle Aqua Cone at Storybook treats. The grayish-blue cone is filled with cotton candy soft-serve topped with cotton candy sugar sprinkles and Mickey-shaped sugar cubes.
We aren’t super wild about cotton candy, but we still enjoyed this cone and would recommend it as a fun, simple treat! You can try it for $5.99 or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit.
Heads up, those sugar cubes are cute but do NOT like to stick to the ice cream in that Florida heat!
Available Now in Disney Springs
In Disney Springs, Amorette’s Patisserie is offering what they call the Arendelle Aqua drink, which is made with Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco, Bols Blue Curaçao, and Monin Cotton Candy. And it’s topped with shimmery white chocolate Minnie ears.
The drink just tasted like Prosecco! Sadly, we really didn’t taste any citrus flavor from the blue curaçao or any cotton candy flavor from the Monin Cotton Candy. And just a heads up — the shimmery ears are a little bit messy with all the shimmery dust coating them! You can try this new drink for $19.
The Daily Poutine
At The Daily Poutine, you’ll find the truly beautiful Arendelle Aqua Arctic Punch for $13. This Frozen-themed concoction combines Malibu Coconut Rum, Bols Peach Schnapps, Bols Blue Curacao, and fruit juices for $13.
First of all, we must say that this drink is the color we were expecting when we first heard about Arendelle Aqua. And, we enjoyed its tropical, fruity flavors!
Plus — you guys!!! — it’s SPARKLES! We’re suckers for shining, shimmering (whoops, wrong movie!) drinks and this is just as prettyto look at as it is tasty to drink.
Available Now in Disneyland
Jolly Holiday Bakery
The Arendelle Aqua Macaron has a buttercream, blueberry, and cream filling! While we haven’t been too fond of some of the color trend macarons in the past, we loved the texture of the creme of the Arendelle Aqua version. It was SO smooth and very yummy.
You can get this at Jolly Holiday for $5.99 before an Annual Passholder discount.
At Disneyland’s Market House, you can grab the Arendelle Aqua Linzer Cookie, which is a Mickey-shaped cookie with mixed berry jam and white chocolate drizzle.
While we enjoyed the light berry flavors of this treat, the cookie was extremely fragile and unfortunately started to fall apart as soon as we left the store. 🙁 Overall, though, the cookie is adorable and yummy! You can purchase it for $5.99 before an Annual Passholder discount.
Again with the sparkle!!! We still can’t get over how pretty the jammy center of this cookie was. It looks like Elsa was whipping up a big batch of cookies up on the North Mountain in her Ice Palace!!!!
Churro Cart Near Sleeping Beauty Castle
Near Sleeping Beauty Castle, we stumbled upon the Arendelle Aqua Churro!
The Arendelle Aqua Churro is a plain churro coated in blue sugar. It had a hint of cotton candy flavor that we enjoyed (noticing the cotton candy trend here??). Our churro was fresh and the sugar didn’t stain our hands and teeth like many of the Avengers Infinity Stone Churros have in the past. So, overall we were pleasantly surprised!
We found the Arendelle Aqua Churro at the churro cart near Sleeping Beauty Castle for $5.25.
If you’re in the mood for a smaller treat, head over to Trolley Treats for the Arendelle Aqua Cake Pop!
The vanilla cake is covered in white chocolate with a hint of blueberry… And it was delicious! The moist cake was soft with every bite, and the white chocolate added a lovely little crunch. While the blueberry flavor was faint, it added a twist that fit the aqua blue color perfectly!
You can get the Arendelle Aqua Cake Pop for $4.99 before an Annual Passholder discount!
Available Now at Walt Disney World Resorts
World Premiere Food Court
If you want to add some aqua to your breakfast, head on over to Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort to pick up the new Arendelle Aqua Sugar Drop Donut. This donut is a not-too-sweet cake donut dipped in an aqua fondant glaze. It’s topped with blue and white sprinkles and sugar crystals.
The cake donuts were moist, but not too heavy — just like we like ’em! However, the icing was a bit strange on these donuts. We couldn’t figure out what the flavor of the icing was! There wasn’t much of a taste at all, TBH. Maybe it was vanilla? We aren’t really sure!! But, the sprinkles on top of the icing did add a nice crunch to each bite of the donut.
You can grab a pack of two donuts for $3.99 at World Premiere Food Court.
Aqua Pearl Cupcake
Disney’s Pop Century Resort is home to the Aqua Pearl Cupcake, which consists of chocolate cake, blue cotton candy marshmallow filling, cotton candy buttercream frosting, milk chocolate ears, crispy pearls, sugar, and glitter.
The cotton candy buttercream was VERY sweet, but an extremely fun flavor on top of the chocolate! Also, the sprinkles, candy pearls, and chocolate ears tied it all together with just a bit of crunch!
The Arendelle Aqua Sparkle Cupcake has made its glittery debut at the Caribbean Beach Resort! This is a chocolate cupcake with chocolate salted caramel mousse filling. It’s topped with white and aqua-colored vanilla buttercream, blue crispy pearls, and shimmery milk chocolate ears.
After taking one bite of this dessert, we have to say that the Arendelle Aqua Sparkle Cupcake is the “Best of the Arendelle Fest” right now! The chocolate cake was moist without being too heavy. The chocolate salted caramel mousse was beautifully salty and sweet, complementing the cake. The buttercream on top added a lighter (but still just as delicious) flavor to the cupcake, and the pearls finished the treat with a little crunch!
We grabbed this cupcake for $5.99 (it’s snack credit-eligible as well) at Caribbean Beach Resort’s Centertown Market, but you should also be able to find it at Port Orleans Resort’s Sassagoula Floatworks & Food Factory and Riverside Mill Food Court.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is home to the Arendelle Aqua Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake, which we found at Kona Island for $5.49. This is a lemon blueberry cheesecake filled with a blueberry compote. It’s topped with a graham cracker crust, a chocolate shell, and micro orchids.
While we think this treat is super lovely, it seems to be having an identity crisis. We feel like we’ve gone under the sea instead of traveling to the mountains in Arendelle. Maybe it’s supposed to make us think of Olaf’s song, “In Summer?”
Identity crisis or not, we really enjoyed this Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake. The flavor wasn’t overwhelming and the blueberry blends well with the lemon. The cheesecake itself was STUNNING and the graham cracker crumbles on the top and bottom gave us the bit of crunch that we needed!
Gasparilla Island Grill
Next door at the Grand Floridian Resort, you can try the Arendelle Aqua Cotton Candy Eclair. The dessert, which we found at Gasparilla Island Grill, is a traditional eclair filled with cotton candy mousse and raspberry curd. It’s topped with white chocolate glaze, sugar sprinkles, and a white chocolate snowflake decoration.
This eclair had a ton of cotton candy mousse, which was thankfully not too sweet. The raspberry curd underneath was our favorite part of the whole thing — it was delicious and offered a tart balance to the cotton candy mousse.
If you want to try this yummy treat for yourself, you can do so for $5.49 or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit!
The Arendelle Aqua Cake from Contempo Cafe might just be the prettiest dessert we’ve seen in a while in Disney World! It’s super chic blueberry buttercream, edible gold paint, and sugary decoration resemble ice crystals which reminds us of the geode trend that’s been happening in cake design lately.
But don’t let its dainty, delicateness fool you — this is one BIG honkin’ piece of cake! We could barely finish it ourselves, so make sure you grab an Anna or Elsa to help you finish it!
The cake itself was vanilla, and when we sliced into it we saw the blueberry jam filling! We adored the addition of the blueberry jam because it added a nice POP of flavor. Overall, we loved this dessert!
Coming Soon to Walt Disney World
While we’ve already tried SO MANY aqua treats, even MORE are on their way to Disney World.
At Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, you’ll find the Ice Elixer drink, which features gin, blue curaçao, lemon, and pineapple. This sounds like it will be the not-too-sweet Arendelle drink we’ve been looking for! We’re not sure when this drink will come available, but it will be offered at the Oasis and Barefoot Pool Bars!
Worth Melting For
We want to give this drink a warm hug just due to its wonderful name! The Wilderness Lodge’s Worth Melting For drink combines vodka, blue curaçao, tropical-flavored syrup, pineapple juice, and sour. You’ll be able to find it at Geyser Point Bar & Grill soon!
Thanks for joining us on our journey through ALL the Arendelle Aqua treats! Stay tuned to Disney Food Blog as we review every new treat we find!
