A cold drink on a hot Disney World day is always a welcome treat. While we try to stick to ice water for the most part—it’s free in Walt Disney World Resort, by the way—the occasional sweet drink to mix things up is nice. Yes, we could choose a typical soda beverage, but considering how hot the weather can get in the Orlando area, what we really prefer are the frozen drinks in Disney World.
Fortunately, frozen beverages can be found all across Disney property. This means finding something delicious and cold to sip on is never a problem. In fact, the bigger issue is deciding which yummy drinks to try.
If you find yourself wondering which are the best frozen drinks in Disney World, you’re in the right place. Below I’ve outlined all of my very favorites. These are a step above the typical frozen lemonade and frozen Coke options you see throughout the parks. Try one of these next time you need to cool down, and I promise you won’t be disappointed.
As I’ve mentioned before, I am a huge coffee fan. Fortunately, Disney World has all kinds of delicious coffee drinks available. One of my absolute favorite coffee drinks on property is the Frozen Cappuccino served at the Jofferey’s Coffee carts in every Disney park. This tasty beverage is sweet and creamy and helps you cool off while also giving you that afternoon boost so many of us need.

Starbucks Frappuccino Drinks
Another great option for those looking for a pick-me-up along with their frozen beverage, Starbucks Frappuccino drinks can be found at the Starbucks locations in all four parks, as well as the two in Disney Springs. We like that these drinks come in a variety of flavors, which you can customize to suit your tastes. (Extra shot or extra whipped cream, anyone?)
Hoping for something a little more unique to enjoy while in Disney World? Try ordering this Maleficent inspired drink or this Raya Frappuccino.

Like the idea of something cold and creamy but want to skip the coffee? The PB&J Milkshake (get the recipe here) might be just the thing. This delicious ice cream drink takes a classic childhood lunchbox favorite and turns it into an amazing and unique dessert you simply will not be able to resist.
This sweet treat is served up at 50’s Prime Time Café in Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park.
Frozen Blue Milk
Star Wars fans absolutely have to stop in at the Milk Stand in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Hollywood Studios. Here, guests can purchase both blue and green milk that look exactly like the milk in the series, providing a fun and immersive snacking experience that you won’t soon forget. Both colors are frozen and both are refreshing. That said, we prefer the blue version and recommend trying it first.

If you’re headed to Animal Kingdom, there is one frozen drink we highly recommend getting while you’re there: the Night Blossom. This colorful, out-of-this-world beverage is served at the Pongu Pongu snack stand in Pandora – The World of Avatar. It features layers of apple and desert pear limeade slushy, which are then topped with passion fruit boba balls. It makes for a very photogenic drink that tastes amazing.
Another fantastic Animal Kingdom beverage, the Frozen Flamingo might not be as pretty as the Night Blossom, but it is just as tasty. This one includes strawberry and passion fruit flavors and is light and refreshing—perfect for a hot day at Animal Kingdom. It can be found at Harambe Market in the Africa section of the park.
For fans of apple juice and Beauty and the Beast, we recommend a cup of LeFou’s Brew. The brew is a refreshing frozen apple juice with just a smidge of toasted marshmallow flavor, which is then topped with a passion-fruit-and-mango-flavored foam.
Fittingly, this beverage is served up at Gaston’s Tavern in Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom, and you can even choose to get yours in a souvenir stein, making the whole experience incredibly immersive.
The American Dream
Anyone who has ever had a creamsicle knows how well fruity flavors can blend with vanilla ice cream. That delicious blend is exactly what you’ll experience when enjoying the oh-so-patriotic beverage dubbed The American Dream. The drink features layers of frozen strawberry Fanta, vanilla ice cream, and frozen blue raspberry Fanta to create a striking red, white, and blue work of art. It can be purchased at the Fife & Drum Tavern at the America Pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase.
Disney’s take on the classic slushy, Goofy’s Glaciers are a fantastic frozen drink choice on a hot day. We love that they come in so many different bold flavors, and kids appreciate their candy-like sweetness. You can find these fruity frozen beverages in all four parks. That said, we much prefer getting ours at Goofy’s Candy Company in Disney Springs, because this shop offers the widest selection of flavors.
Clearly, there is no shortage of amazing frozen deliciousness on Walt Disney World Resort property. In fact, even with this pared-down list of the very best choices, you probably won’t have time to try them all in a single trip, meaning you’ll have to pick and choose those that sound the best to you. That’s okay though! This doesn’t mean you won’t ever get to try the others; it just means you’ll have to go back again soon to try the rest, and we can all use more excuses to visit the most magical place on earth, right?
