Our Favorite Mocktails at Walt Disney World

Your resident foodie and vacation lush here to chime in on our favorite zero-proof drinks at the parks which I feel like Disney has done a much better job of recently.  Zero-proof alcohol is really having a moment so you can get a lot more mocktails that aren't just sugary sweet, and I am here for it! 

Whether you are trying out "Dry January" for your visit, currently pregnant, underage, or just choose not to drink for whatever reason, I hope this list helps you find something to look forward to trying on your next trip!

Let's start with a popular one from the last year, the EARidescent Sip-a-bration drink.  This delight can be found at most lounges throughout the 50th celebration at Walt Disney World. It features Minute Maid® Premium Lemonade and Fruity Strawberry Punch, and is served in a souvenir 50th Celebration Cup with a surprise character. This is definitely a kid-friendly drink but it is so fun to drop in the character and watch the drink change color and start to shimmer!  The lemonade balances the sweetness of the punch nicely.  Since it has the souvenir cup, it is a bit pricey for what it is, but it was fun to do once!  I got Mickey for my character and loved watching the lemonade change into a pink shimmery drink!
Next we headed over to Epcot to a very popular spot, La Cava Del Tequila.  This drink was a little hidden on the menu but WOW was it delicious!  The Mentirosa has a 0.0% ABV and that is how it is notated on the cocktail menu.  It is a mix of Lyre's Italian Orange, Lyre's Agave, cucumber-lime juice, and agave nectar with a hibiscus salt rim.  This was probably the most upscale one I tried on my trip and I really felt included at the tequila bar with this!
Oga's Cantina at Disney's Hollywood Studios is another popular spot for libations, and they have quite the variety of non-alcoholic specialties to choose from.  At our bartender's recommendation, we went for the Carbon Freeze which is POWERADE® Lemon Lime, Wild Strawberry, Blueberry, and Green Apple Popping Pearls.  You really need to see this one in person to appreciate how fun it is! 
Another great choice at Oga's is the Blue Bantha which comes topped with an entire cookie!  It is a jazzed-up blue milk (Blue Milk served chilled with Bantha-inspired Vanilla-Butter Sugar Cookie) perfect for the young and young at heart!
Over at Animal Kingdom there is an instagram-worthy drink you can get with our without alcohol!  In Pandora, head over to Pongu Pongu and check out the Night Blossom which is Layers of Apple and Desert Pear Limeade topped with Boba Balls (The Rum Blossom is the version with alcohol for those wondering!)  It is a frozen beverage, perfect for a hot Florida day! 
Let's head over to one last popular drinking spot, Trader Sam's at the Polynesian Resort.  There are a few "no-booze brews" here but for that tropical vibe try the Schweitzer Falls which is Tropical Juices and Sam’s Gorilla Grog topped with Sprite.
This last one is definitely a milkshake, not a mocktail of any sort, but I just really enjoyed it and found it worth mentioning :) You can find this at Columbia Harbour House in Magic Kingdom and it is the Happy Haunts Milk Shake which includes a Blackberry Milk Shake, topped with a Purple Chocolate-glazed Doughnut covered with Black Sprinkles. It's very simple, but must have been just what I needed that morning because I loved it!  It was so refreshing and the blackberry was a unique twist on a classic milkshake.

Photo Tour and Deck Plan: Disney Fantasy

The Disney Fantasy took its maiden voyage in 2012 and until 2022, was the newest ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet. It's the sister ship to the Disney Dream so you'll see many similarities between the two ships. The Disney Fantasy is an absolutely gorgeous ship, boasting an Art Nouveau style. The ship has 14 decks, 1,250 staterooms, is 1,115 feet in length and weighs 130,000 gross tons. We'll tour the ship starting from Deck 1 up to Deck 14, going from Aft to Forward. Let's start our photo tour! Deck 1 Deck 1 is where you'll find the Health Center. It's also where you can exit the ship to board a tender at Ports of Call that require ships to anchor offshore.  Deck 2 Deck 2 is where you'll find one of the three main dining rooms, Enchanted Garden.  The restaurant transforms throughout dinner, changing from day to night I love these booths! You can also find staterooms, a Midship Detective Agency kiosk and the Vista Gallery showcasing Disney artwork.  Deck

Universal's Volcano Bay Private Cabana Review

On a recent training in Universal Orlando Resort, agents Maci, Ashley, Aubrey and Yaritza and I rented a private cabana for the day at Universal's Volcano Bay. There are multiple locations around the park along with the option to have an upper or lower level, all of which reflect in various pricing. Agent Ashley received an email the day before informing her of where to check-in the next morning. While we were personally escorted to the cabana shortly after check in, the line at the check in location is the same as those getting towels, meaning it was not short. As expressed by an additional guest checking into a different cabana, we would have greatly appreciated a separate line, since this caused our group about a half hour wait. We're all adults and made great use of our time getting some fun pictures before the park was filled with guests, but this is important to be aware of if you are traveling with children.  We had an upper level Cabana which came with a splendid view!

The Villas at the Disneyland Hotel Review

I love staying at the Disneyland Hotel so when I got the opportunity to stay at the new Villas at the Disneyland Hotel during opening weekend, I couldn’t pass it up. Because it was opening weekend, we were greeted in the entrance way of the lobby with balloons and many photo opportunities. When we arrived, there was a mural of the Haunted Mansion. I love how the seats in the main lobby were designed like the teacups in the parks. You can check in using the Disneyland app, drop your bags with bell services and head into the parks or use the amenities why you wait until your room is ready. When your room is ready, the resort will send you a text and you can use the Disneyland app on your mobile device to unlock the room. We dropped off our bags and went straight to the parks. We received a text around 1PM that our room was ready. In the new Discovery Tower (the Villas), you'll find that the lobby is very spacious with many places to sit while you read or wait for your family. Th
