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.

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

Mythos Restaurant at Universal's Islands of Adventure

Located on The Lost Continent of Universal's Islands of Adventure, Mythos is an award-winning, full-service restaurant that offers an otherworldly experience. If you've ever been to Universal's Islands of Adventure, you've undoubtedly walked by this restaurant with its towering rock formations, waterfalls and ancient figures carved into the side of the building. The restaurant has been calling to me for years and I was finally able to give it a try. When you enter the restaurant, it feels like you've entered a cavernous grotto from another world. There are oceanic and mythical touches throughout the indoor dining room and there's also outdoor seating with great views of the park. View from our table The menu features a mix of Mediterranean, Asian and American cuisine including Spanakopita Dip, Pad Thai and a Bacon Cheeseburger. There's also a kids menu for little ones and a dessert menu featuring Chocolate Banana Gooey Cake.  On our first visit to Mythos, we

Bigfire Restaurant Review

Bigfire is, in my opinion, a great addition to Universal CityWalk at the Universal Orlando Resort. Having been a huge fan of Emeril's which was previously in this location, I was skeptic, but quickly put at ease once we were inside and met our server and have been back several times since. After a full day in the parks, we had a pretty late dinner on the agenda so we started in the lounge attached to the restaurant.  The cocktail selection is quite extensive, with bourbon drinks being the star here. My Manhattan was delicious and set the tone for a great meal ahead! The bar is also a great stop if you don't have a reservation, I found the bartenders friendly, attentive, and making great drinks! The open kitchen is a great feature as you enter the dining room.  The d├ęcor is modern yet cozy with touches of plaid throughout.  The highlight is of course the "big fire", where they wood smoke a variety of meats for the entrees. We started the meal with some wine a
