When Walt Disney set out on his journey to reimagine the American amusement park, he envisioned an ever-evolving landscape that would never truly be “finished”. To this day, Walt Disney World and all of its components continue to evolve and change, from its shops to its rides to even its menus. The following ten specialty beverages are some of the best and most creative family-friendly drinks that guests can experience while visiting WDW.
1. LeFou’s Brew – Magic Kingdom
Though it may sound like an adult beverage, this saccharine ode to Belle’s would-be beau is sure to appeal to beauties and beasts of all ages. The drink — which can be found in Fantasyland at Gaston’s Tavern — consists of frozen apple juice with a dash of toasted marshmallow flavoring and comes topped with a heady passion fruit-mango foam. Available in a souvenir stein, it’s the ideal accompaniment for anyone looking to serenade their sweetheart. Although, unlike its namesake, this drink has been known to be overly sweet for some. We recommend you storm the castle and try it for yourself.
2. The PB&J Milkshake – Hollywood Studios
This creamy concoction reimagines the inseparable childhood lunchtime pairing as a densely delicious milkshake, which can be found at the 50’s Prime Time Cafe. Topped with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry, it makes for the ideal drinkable dessert at this homey eatery devoted to yesteryear and is served with a gentle reminder to keep your elbows off the table.
3. Night Blossom – Animal Kingdom
Alternating layers of pink and green slushies help create an otherworldly beverage in the form of this World of Avatar favorite. Found at Pongo Pongo, this drink combines limeade with apple and desert pear flavors and is topped with orange passion fruit boba balls to create a bold flavor experience that’ll leave you talking about it until you’re blue in the face.

4. Espresso Gelato Affogato – Epcot
Coffee lovers will appreciate this offering from Italy’s gelato stand, which features espresso poured over decadent gelato, topped with a pair of cookies, a generous helping of chocolate-covered coffee beans, and served with a wafer straw. The cost is a bit high at around $10, though the drink does pack a lot of flavor into its modest-sized cup.
5. The Dole Whip Float – Magic Kingdom
There’s no wrong way to enjoy a Dole Whip. This iteration — available at Aloha Isle — serves up a healthy dose of delicious pineapple juice topped with a generous corkscrew of the signature pineapple soft serve to create an electrifying fusion of liqui-frozen refreshment. An adult’s-only offering is also available that pairs the soft serve with Rum which is available at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, and is even sometimes available during EPCOT’s Festivals.
6. Mystic Portal Punch – Hollywood Studios
Available at Woody’s Lunch Box in Toy Story Land, this drink combines mountain berry blast Powerade with tangerine and lemon-lime flavors to create an out-of-this-world beverage that’ll leave those who are sampling it oo-ing and ah-ing like wide-eyed extraterrestrials. It is also offered in a souvenir “Alien Sipper” for an additional cost.
7. Jungle Juice – Animal Kingdom
Also known as POG juice or Liliko’ i juice, this drink consists of a delightful combination of passion fruit, guava, and orange juices. Spiked versions can also be found on property, but the non-alcoholic original can be found at Tusker House as well as other locations such as the Polynesian Resort. This is also one of the easiest specialty beverages to recreate at home.
8. The American Dream – Epcot
This patriotic beverage separates layers of strawberry and blue raspberry slushies with vanilla soft serve, forming a drinkable tapestry of red, white, and blue that Betsy Ross would be proud of. Available at the Fife and Drum Tavern in (where else?!) the American Pavilion, this flavorful drink features just the right amount of creamy ice cream accompaniment to leave you whistling Dixie.
9. Coca-Cola Tasting Experiences – Disney Springs
The Coca-Cola Store’s rooftop beverage bar not only offers panoramic views of the Disney Springs area, but also customizable taste testing experiences that’ll tickle your taste buds with a wide array of effervescent sodas. Various freestyle experiences allow guests to sample or blend any of the 100 varieties from around the world (with up to five refills within an hour of purchase), while the Create Your Own Beverage Experience invites you to unleash your inner mad scientist by mixing ingredients to form your own creative concoctions. The Float Tray offers visitors yet another option, which includes a sampling of up to 16 of Coca-Cola’s sodas from around the globe.
10. Wonderland Slush – Magic Kingdom
Yet another colorful slush, this entry comes courtesy of the Cheshire Cafe. With its pink and purple swirl, this drink is an obvious and adorable ode to the establishment’s impish namesake. Featuring Fanta grape and Minute Maid raspberry lemonade and served with a strawberry candy straw, this drink is like something out of a warped, wonderful dream.
