Just because the fall decorations are up in the Magic Kingdom doesn’t mean that fall weather has settled in to stay in Florida! I just came back from a great week that was anything but cool. With temperatures in the 90s, each day was filled with harsh sun, hot heat, and unbearable sweating. It was hot, especially between 1 and 5 pm. Thank goodness, the cool of sun down and the promise of a daily rain shower meant the nights were much more comfortable! But when the sun was beating down, we worked hard to find ways to cool off. One sure fire plan to cool off was to find something icy to enjoy! Move over happy hour, we’re renaming the hours of 1 and 5 pm, hot hour! Today we are talking my favorite frozen drinks for you whole family (non-alcoholic that is) to enjoy during the melting hour! Let’s get sipping!
It’s refreshing, cooling, and just the right combination of sweet and tart. This is frozen favorite is sure to quench your thirst in the hottest heat of the day! While this treat is available throughout the parks, my favorite spot to grab mine and seek shade is in the Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland, under the shade of the Lunching Pad. Grab a table and stop for a sip with this yummy frozen favorite!
LeFou’s Brew (from Gaston’s Tavern in the New Fantasyland area)
This frozen drink is a unique spin on the slushie drink. While I really enjoy this drink, I prefer to share this treat–that’s because it is VERY sweet, a little too sweet for a solo sip, for me at least. A unique blend of frozen apple juice, toasted marshmallow, and exotic passion fruit-mango foam set this refreshing drink apart. Seek shelter with this cooling concoction in Gaston’s Tavern. You’ll enjoy the decor…there is a definite outdoorsy theme…think antlers in all of the decorating. Grab your camera and get ready to take some Gaston sized photos!
If anyone knows anything about cooling off with an icy treat, it’s Goofy! Sip on one of the many flavor favorites from the ever-lovable Goof himself! You can find loads of flavors at Goofy’s Candy Co. in Downtown Disney as well as a smaller range of selected flavors throughout the parks. I particularly like to grab my strawberry Goofy Glacier in Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Beverley Sunset Sweet Spells Shop (located just off of Sunset Boulevard). I seek a shady spot and keep my eyes peeled for my favorite type of people watching…the Citizens of Hollywood!
Solar Coca-Cola (from the Lunching Pad in Tomorrowland)
I love the carbonated frozen drinks from the Lunching Pad! My absolute favorite is the Solar Coca-Cola! With just enough bubbly carbonation from the soda this frozen drink is thirsty and flavor quenching! This drink (maybe just called by a different name) is available throughout the parks for you to enjoy! Make it a large and cool off with a smile on your face!
So those are my go-to frozen (family friendly) drinks. For me, ice cream drinks, adult beverages, and floats fit into a different category (other wise, this list could have gone on and on for days!) So, what would you list above? What frozen drink do I need to try next time I’m feeling the heat of the day at Disney World? Share your super cooling sippables in the comment section below!
As always, thanks for reading and commenting!
See ya real soon!
