We’re starting to jump into summer here in Central Florida (we’re looking at 90s today!), and soon the masses will be making their pilgrimages down to WDW for summer vacation. Higher temps and higher crowds can lead to higher tensions, so be sure to take some time to find some shade, cool off, and partake in a nice cold treat!
Of course, it seems everyone loves a Dole Whip, and I’m sure that a stop at Aloha Isle is a must-do on each visit to Magic Kingdom!
Personally, I love the Citrus Swirl, found at the nearby Sunshine Tree Terrace, home of the Little Orange Bird. I love how the slight tartness of the frozen orange juice pairs with the sweet vanilla soft serve!
In New Fantasyland, you can find two spots for cool treats! Prince Eric’s Village Market serves Shaved Ice in a variety of flavors.
And of course you can always stop in to Gaston’s Tavern for a tankard or chalice or LeFou’s Brew.
If you have a serious sweet tooth, head to Storybook Treats for one of their Sundaes!
You can find Minute Maid Frozen Lemonade throughout the parks, including with added alcohol in Animal Kingdom and at Epcot’s Fife & Drum Tavern (the Red Stag has made the regular menu). Magic Kingdom, however, serves up a Raspberry Lemonade Slush at Cheshire Cafe and the Liberty Swirl Slush at Sleepy Hollow Inn, a combination of strawberry and blue raspberry. And if you dine at Liberty Tree Tavern, you can always treat yourself to a Patriot Punch!
Stop by Kabuki Cafe for some icy Kakigori or Green Tea Ice Cream and listen to Matsuriza perform.
In China, Joy of Tea has a few frozen selections, including this non-alcoholic Mango Green Tea Slush.
If you like a hot-and-cold treat combination, head over to Trilo-Bites for their Baked Apple Blossom with Ice Cream, drizzled with caramel sauce.
At Yak & Yeti’s restaurant (quick-service window around the corner), you can choose from a few frozen cocktails, including the Yak Attack.
Dinosaur Gertie’s is a great spot to visit for a quick ice cream fix.
Peevy’s Polar Pipeline and Hey Howdy Hey Takeaway offer up a few different flavors of slushes.
Ghirardelli Soda Fountain offers treats from scoops to sundaes.
Grab a seat at Splitsville for one of their strong frozen concoctions while relaxing to the musicians they feature outside.
Hide away at T-Rex Cafe for a frosty chalice of beer.
Keep an eye out for ice cream carts all over property, where you can grab a Mickey’s Premium Bar, Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Sandwich, or Matt’s favorite, the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwich!
Or you could always mix up some Disney magic at home!
How do YOU like to cool off at WDW?
