The Walt Disney World Resort is known for many things-it’s clean parks, beautiful resorts, and unmatched customer service. Another great aspect is all of the food and drink options. There are over 200 locations in Disney World to find something to eat or drink. Finding something unique is so fun to do. Let’s go outside the normal realm of pop, water, and lemonade and try something new!
Here are some of my favorite unique cocktails around the Walt Disney World Resort that you should try on your next trip. I’ve split them up into two categories: Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic.
Who wouldn’t want a yummy, tropical drink served in a pineapple? If you’re a rum fan then head on over to the Tambu Lounge located at the Polynesian Resort. You can also find it in ‘Ohana as well as Kona and Trader Sams. I mean, if it’s served in a pineapple then its super healthy, right?
A delicious drink AND a souvenir? Sign me up! This drink can also be found at the Tambu Lounge and is not only another great mix of rum but also has a splash of whiskey, which makes it a bit more interesting than the Lapu Lapu. And you leave with an actual back scratcher so it’s a win-win. WARNING-Back scratchers might also be used by the kiddos as swords when you return home.
Avocados are the new “it” food item. New is a relative term, avocados have been popular for quite some time, however, delicious new ways to prepare them crop up every day. One of my favorites is the Avacado Margarita at La Cava dek Tequila. World-class tequila sis blended with an avocado until smooth and creamy, a splash of Midori Melon liquor gives it an unexpected light tartness that refreshes on even the hottest of Florida days. The drink is finished off with a Hibiscus Himalayan salt rim that truly makes it stand out! (Recipe below!)
La Vie en Rose
Over in the France Pavillion, you’ll find the “grey goose slushy” – officially named La Vie en Rose. This adorable pink drink is an expertly blended combination of Grey Goose vodka, juices and ice and tastes best when you’re enjoying it with friends!
When the Wilderness Lodge was renovated, the Geyser Point Bar and Grill was added to the property and it is now one of my favorite restaurants in Disney World. With its open-air ambiance, it’s a perfect place to hang out with friends enjoying the view of Bay Lake. Similar to a mojito, the cocojito is a fun summer drink that incorporates both coconut cream and coconut rum. The light sweetness makes it. a refreshing way to wind down after a busy day in the parks.
Dole Whip Float
The infamous Dole Whip that made its debut in the early 80s will always and forever be on my list of must-haves when I visit either Disney World or Disneyland. The best place to snag one is in Magic Kingdom at Aloha Isle in Adventureland. While this used to he the only place to snag this iconic treat, its popularity has seen it expand to several locations throughout the resort.
When you’re ready for a sugar overload, make sure to stop at Gaston’s Tavern in New Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom. This super sweet drink is made up primarily of apple juice which a dash of pomegranate juice as well as a marshmallows fluff topping. It tastes best while sipping by the mock fireplace in the tavern itself, which is a really cute replica of the tavern in Beauty and the Beast.
When it debuted this summer the Wonderland slush became an instant sensation! Foodies and Instagrammers alike flocked to this colorful creation, and for good reason! Unlike many insta-worthy beverages…this one is REALLY good! Frozen Minute Maid Raspberry Lemonade and frozen Grape Fanta swirl together to create a delicious concoction that just the pick me up you need during a busy day at Magic Kingdom. It’s the strawberry rock candy straw, however, that really makes this treat a true standout. A bit of advice- not that I learned from experience or anything but we recommend taking a so on the teacups before trying this sweet treat!
When I attended the grand opening of Pandora-The World of Avatar in Disney’s Animal Kingdom back in May 2017, I was able to enjoy this sweet slushy which was great after a long hot morning of waiting to get into the park. It’s similar to the classic slushy at a 711 but definitely turned up a notch. The best part is the bobas at the top that explode in your mouth with a sweet juice. You can get them at the Pongu Pongu lounge and alcoholic options are also available.
PB & J Milkshake
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a staple in my home and I love getting this tasty classic in milkshake form when I’m in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. You can find it at the 50’s Prime Time Diner but I’ll let you in on a little secret youn’t have to have a dining reservation to get one. Go into the Tune In Lounge next door and ask for one at the bar. They’ll take good care of you.
As an extra special treat- the La Cava del Tequila released the recipe for their Avacado Margarita on Instagram! If you’re not headed to the Epcot any time soon… Why not make it yourself at home?
