We’ll admit it — sometimes we forget about certain dining and beverage locations at Disney World, especially if they haven’t been open for a while.
Our stroll around the world today had us sipping on a brand new spiked slush — a Troll Kreme. With a name like that you can guess we spotted this picture-perfect slush in Epcot’s Norway pavilion!
You know, a drink is always a lot more fun when it is topped with whipped cream…but was this Troll Kreme a delight or not?
Along with the debut of a lot of Christmas and Holiday themed food and drinks around the parks, we are also seeing the debut of some new “treats with character”! While we were in the Magic Kingdom for the first night of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (can’t wait!), we stopped at The Lunching Pad to try out the new Space Ranger Slushy.
This Buzz-worthy 😀 layered slushy comes with a rock candy coated straw and is made up of layers of purple grape and green apple slushy.
If not, then lemme tell ya. We loved it a LOT. But since there’s a new sipping spot/coffee joint in Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland with Joffrey’s Revive Coffee Kiosk, the offerings at Auntie Gravity’s (also located in Tomorrowland) have changed up a bit.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I think Joffrey’s Revive is a terrific addition to Magic Kingdom. But I have to admit I was bummed to find that one of the subsequent changes was the removal of Iced Coffee Floats from Auntie Gravity’s.
So, with that, it’s time to find a different sipper from Auntie (who still serves up soft-serve ice cream, too, by the way).
Fortunately, she still has a few tricks up her sleeve, as Auntie Gravity’s is one of the few spots where you can find Smoothies, available in Raspberry or Strawberry. [Read more…]
On a recent stroll around Epcot’s World Showcase, I paid a visit to the Spice Road Table Juice Bar in the Morocco Pavilion. It was a hot afternoon (no surprise there!), so I was seeking out the Chef-created ice cream to cool down a bit.
However, I noticed a few new additions to the non-alcoholic Oasis Slushies on the menu: the Desert Rose and the Tangerine Delight have joined the Royal Blue Slushie.
Since I was after anything cold at that point, I thought I would try something new.
Guests could previously find the Desert Rose (made with Pink Lemonade) and Royal Blue Slush (made with Blue Raspberry) at the Morocco Oasis Kiosk which also offered the Sultan’s Colada and the Moroccorita cocktails.
Since the arrival of Spice Road Table, that kiosk has been removed, so it’s nice to know that some – in fact, most — of those offerings are available at the Juice Bar (by the way, it’s a little difficult to read in the photo, but the price for a non-alcoholic Slushie is $5.99).
Tangerine Delight was new to me, so I decided to give it a whirl!
I am SO glad I did… this simple slush packs a TON of flavor. Everything you need to know about it is [Read more…]
Hooray! We’re finally celebrating our first taste of Spice Road Table!
We’ve been eating our little hearts out at Epcot’s newest tapas restaurant and we can’t wait to tell you all about it!
Our review will be broken into a few parts, since there’s SO much to share!
Spice Road Table will be soft opening on Saturday for the public (a grand opening has not yet been scheduled), and we want to hear what you think! The tapas-only restaurant features small plates (which means you can order a LOT!) as well as specialty drinks, a full bar, wines, beers, and more.
There’s even some chef-crafted ice cream (we got to try all five flavors!!) — scroll down to see our review and some fun pics!
But first, let’s take a look around…
Here you’ll see pictures of the new Juice Bar, the outdoor seating at the restaurant, and even the indoor decor! It’s gorgeous!! We can’t wait for you to check it out!
Spice Road Table, Epcot’s newest restaurant taking up residence on the shores of World Showcase Lagoon in the Morocco Pavilion, will surely be a destination for many Disney food lovers like me!
The space combines 60 indoor seats and 120 outdoor seats, so guests will be comfortable no matter the weather. Now, let’s take a peek INSIDE the restaurant!
As you can see, the space inside is small, but well appointed. There is a view of the water from every single table through the giant wall of windows looking onto World Showcase Lagoon.
Yep — this will absolutely be a hot ticket for the fireworks!
Decor elements include bright colors, plenty of Moroccan additions, and some truly gorgeous lamps and lanterns.
But, of course, the main draw is the view!! I’m looking forward to sitting at this table soon!
The atmosphere was meant to [Read more…]
Ah, frozen beverages, how I love thee. Today, we’re headed in to Disney California Adventure in the Disneyland Resort for some sweet-tart frozen deliciousness! Ready to hit up Rita’s Baja Blenders in Pacific Wharf? Let’s go!
Here at Rita’s you can get drinks or drinks. And some chips maybe.
Choose from regular Lemon-Lime or Strawberry Margaritas, or opt for the Grand, which comes with a “splash of liqueur” and a slightly higher price tag.
There’s also a non-alcoholic version available called the Tropicool.
If you absolutely must have something to soak up that tequila, there are a few varieties of chips available.
My friend chose the classic Lemon-Lime Margarita with Salt. Now, maybe I’m just a sucker for a pretty garnish — but I thought this looked pretty tasty for a [Read more…]
