Every few weeks our writers get together and answer a Disney related question. Here is this weeks!
Question of the Week: What are a few of your favorite drinks at Disney Parks?
Andrew – I’ll do an alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink on both coasts.
Starting at Disneyland, my favorite drink is the Prickly Pear Soda in DCA at the Cozy Cone’s. The pear flavor is prevalent and sweet enough. This is close to a pear juice but with carbonation and one of the more unique drinks for those that don’t like alcohol. Trader Sam’s (Disneyland Hotel) boasts my favorite alcoholic drink in the HippopotoMai-Tai. Not only a fun name, this is Mai-Tai with a decent amount of rum in it as opposed to some in the park where the drinks are more sweet than anything.
In Disney World, Flame Tree Barbecue (Animal Kingdom) has an Mandarin Orange Lemonade that is fantastic. I like my lemonade sweet and this definitely fits the bill, plus the flavor is unique and always refreshing. The Lapu Lapu at the Polynesian is my favorite alcoholic drink. This is another rum based drink with fruit juices but it’s served in a hollowed-out pineapple to be extra cool!
Cassie – Oh boy I love anything from The Cove Bar in DCA. There is nothing better than a fruity drink over Paradise Pier! The Mickey’s Fun Wheel is a classic choice. The Fun Wheel is a multi-colored, fruity, and delicious cocktail! I will really miss going to the Cove Bar as it’s set to close soon. I hope whatever takes its place is equally as delicious! The Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Rum is another winner! My favorite at Trader Sams for sure!
Leslie – Is it sad to say I’ve only really had the alcoholic drinks other than soft drinks? But here goes, I’d say I have a few favorites but the ones that I find myself ordering repeatedly would be the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Rum from Trader Sam’s that Cassie mentioned, it’s a tamer drink in my opinion as I prefer a sweet drink. The atmosphere definitely adds to the experience too. Something folks can get at home that I typically get in the Germany pavilion is called apfelkorn, it’s a smaller shot but definitely hits the spot.
Melissa – Andrew definitely took my favorite – the mandarin orange lemonade from the Flame Tree Barbecue. As someone who doesn’t drink soda or alcohol…I love finding fun drinks that isn’t water to enjoy. As I said, the Mandarin Orange lemonade is my top favorite. Another favorite also comes from Animal Kingdom. This can be found at Tiffins and the Nomad Lounge. It’s the Passionfruit Vanilla Flavored Iced Tea. Some of the best tea I have ever had and served with a fresh vanilla sauce. SO GOOD!
