Cheshire Cafe Review

Cheshire Cafe Review

When the Florida sun gets you steaming, head over to the Cheshire Café located in Fantasyland just across from the Mad Tea Party ride. This quick serve, walk-up kiosk designed to look like a quaint cottage features cool drinks to help you and your family beat the heat.

My children and I stopped there one afternoon in search of something refreshing after rushing about the Magic Kingdom. The frozen slushies immediately caught my kids’ attention. Two ordered the Lemonade and one ordered the Raspberry-Lemonade. In short order, freezing cold 16 oz. cups were placed in their hands. The Lemonade slush, while certainly soft and smooth, was very tart which turned off my 9 and 11 year olds. They simply found the flavor too overpowering and left most of it in their cups. The Raspberry-Lemonade my eldest chose turned out to be the better pick. Here the sweetness of the raspberry balanced out the lemon making it a much easier drink to consume completely. We all agreed we would order this slushie should we come back again.

Looking for something equally refreshing but less frozen, I chose a French Vanilla Iced Coffee. It turned out to be a processed drink from a machine instead of a brewed cold coffee drink. I was disappointed, especially by the taste. The French vanilla flavoring tasted more like caramel to me and the drink was far too sweet. The melting ice made the drink somewhat better tasting as more and more water was added to the syrupy mix.

Although there is a small seating area to the side of the eatery, the Cheshire Café is designed to be more of a “grab-and-go” location. The café also offers hot chocolate, coffee, water, and fruit juices, being sponsored by Minute Maid. While the focus is on drinks, for a snack you can get fresh fruit all day and muffins and individual cereal bowls mainly during the morning hours.


F.A.S.T. Review

Food – This quick serve beverage stand helps you cool off during the heat of the day. The focus is mainly on drinks though you can get fresh fruit, muffins, and cereal during the morning hours.

Atmosphere – The cute cottage looks like something you would find in the movie Alice in Wonderland. In fact, the soundtrack from that movie plays in the background making it a happy little location to cool off or wait for your party to come off the Mad Tea Party ride.

Service – A cast member with a bright smile was happy to interact with us while serving our drinks. Since the lines can build up here, especially during the summer, it’s fair to expect quick service.

Tips – Skip the iced coffee unless you are looking for an artificial, overly sweet drink. The Raspberry-Lemonade slushie is also the better of the two available.

The DisDining Mama Says – Ask for an empty cup and have your young children share a slushie. It’s going to be too tart for little ones to finish on their own.
