It’s interesting how we can spot trends at Disney World resorts, especially when it comes to new merchandise.
We were there when Disney started pushing Wishables and nuiMOs. And don’t even get us started on Collectible Keys or the Stitch Crashes Disney collection! Or there’s the Minnie Mouse The Main Attraction collection that came before that. Sometimes it’s just a color trend (remember how nuts we all got over rose gold?).
But there’s a new trend happening around Disney World Resorts and we have to admit that this trend involves something we’ll use every day, especially in the summer! We’re talking about Corkcicles. Yes, we’ve seen them often at Wine Bar George. And we’ve even seen Mickey and Minnie Corkcicles! Oh, boy!
But now Disney World resorts are jumping on the Corkcicle bandwagon! We first spotted a resort-themed Corkcicle at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn. This one is a Navy Blue canteen with a cute BoardWalk graphic on it.
But then Corkcicles started turning up at other resorts, like Disney’s Old Key West Resort. This Corkcicle is a white canteen with a lighthouse and the name of the resort on it.
We’ve also seen a Corkcicle at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. This canteen has the Contemporary Resort logo on it. We will note that so far, we’ve only seen the canteen style of Corkcicles at the resorts, but this size makes for a great water bottle in the parks!
We recently spotted another Corkcicle over at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. This one is priced at $39.99 and features the Wilderness Lodge logo on it and a wooden design.
We also have a feeling this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Corkcicles at Disney World resorts. They’ve slowly started popping up at resorts and we expect to see them at other deluxe hotels — and possibly even moderate resorts — soon. But we get it — it’s summer and everyone knows the importance of staying hydrated, especially in the Florida heat. These babies keep your cold liquids cold, so they are PERFECT to take to the parks in the summer!
And while we’re at it, we have to mention that Disney also announced an exclusive Corkcicle for the upcoming 2021 Food and Wine Festival. And that makes a lot of sense because this year’s sponsor is Corkcicle! You’ll be able to purchase sparkling beverages in the Shimmering Sips Corkcicle at the Shimmering Sips Global Marketplace and four other Festival locations.
It seems like Disney and Corkcicle have a special relationship now — we’re still obsessed with the Star Wars Corkcicles! But we’re most intrigued by all the new resort ones, so we’ll continue to keep an eye out for more. What a fun — and useful — way to represent your current “home away from home!”
