Review: The I Lava You Float and Fried Potstickers


Hey there, Disney Friends!

Ready for a tasty snack review? This one is a two-for-one since both of the items are at the same location, the Sunshine Tree Terrace in Adventureland at the Magic Kingdom. We've got a beverage for you, as well as a snack! 

First up, who doesn't LOVE Pixar's animated short "Lava"? We adore it in this house and it's still one of my son's favorite songs to fall asleep to. Of course, we HAD to try the "I Lava You" Float! This colorful float starts with strawberry Fanta soda and is topped with a generous portion of orange-flavored Dole Whip. The swirl is then topped with a drizzle of passion fruit syrup and red popping candy. The whole thing looks like molten lava, (and it's especially clever how Disney even manages to make it hot out so that the lava begins melting as soon as you get it! 😉). 

And it's not just pretty folks, it's pretty tasty too! I wasn't sure how I would feel about it, since I am not wild about passion fruit, but the mix of fruity flavors actually just gave the drink a fruit punchy kind of taste. No one flavor dominated and it was just a refreshing, tropical treat! The portion of orange Dole Whip was huge and easily shareable. In fact, it's probably best to either eat it with a buddy or get a second cup to spoon out some of the Whip into. Otherwise, it's hard to get to the soda before everything is a melty mess. Overall, at $6.99, and a huge, shareable portion, I'd say this one's a winner!

What goes better with a sweet drink than a savory bite or two? The Fried Potstickers are a great accompaniment! The five fried potstickers are filled with pork and veggies and come with a side of orange sesame ginger dipping sauce. They had a nice, crispy exterior, and a crunchy, flavorful filling. Very reminiscent of the 'Ohana potstickers! The dipping sauce really pulled them all together though, so I highly recommend not skimping on the sauce. These were also priced at $6.99 for the serving. In this case, I'd say that's a little high, considering that the dumplings themselves are pretty small, and you only get five of them. There are other snacks that you could get that would be more filling and a better value, but they are good, so if you're craving potstickers, you will NOT be disappointed! 
So, what do you think? Will you be trying one of these out on your next trip to the Magic Kingdom? Keep in mind that all Disney menus are subject to item and pricing changes, so get 'em while you can! Until next time, Friends, have a magical week!

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne
