And now we think we may have found another iconic pairing in Disney World — cold brew coffee and ice cream. We were taking a stroll through Disney’s Animal Kingdom when we spotted two NEW coffee drinks at Dino-Bite Snacks, and we just so happen to think that one of them is almost as iconic as milk and cookies — let’s check ’em out!
We took a trip back a few thousand years over to Dinoland U.S.A. in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and while we were there we happened to find the Cold Brew Coffee Ice Cream Float from Dino-Bite Snacks for $5.99!
This treat is made with Joffrey’s Cold Brew Coffee and Haagen Dazs Vanilla Ice Cream — which sounds like the best partnership since Disney and Pixar joined forces if you ask us! You can also choose to substitute regular cold brew for the Shakin’ Jamaican Cold Brew, which has notes of caramel and vanilla flavors.
Our ice cream melted pretty quickly, but we really didn’t mind as it mellowed out the coffee flavor and acted as milk in our coffee. We could definitely taste the vanilla from the ice cream and it made for a smooth and not-too-sweet. You can add an additional syrup flavor for $0.50, but our Cast Member recommended going without since the ice cream is sweet enough on its own!
If you love sweet and creamy coffee, you should definitely give this a shot — but if you like your coffee black and not sweet (or just don’t like coffee) this drink probably isn’t for you.

We also tried the Shakin’ Jamaican Cold Brew with Caramel Syrup. We added the caramel syrup to our drink for $0.50, and we’re glad we did! This cold brew coffee was super sweet and we didn’t find the need to add any cream or sugar. The caramel flavor was definitely there, but it didn’t overpower the coffee at all and reminded us of the Caramel Crunch from Starbucks!
We’d recommend stirring the coffee WELL before taking your first sip if you’ve added any flavor syrups, as they tend to sink to the bottom.
If you love flavored coffees but not the sweetness, we’d probably skip the syrup and opt for the Shakin’ Jamaican Cold Brew on its own — but for $4.29, we just might have to get this again (and maybe add some ice cream to it, we like to dream big).
