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

Planning Hack - 4 Best Times to Visit Walt Disney World

One of the biggest questions I get as a Disney travel planner is "what time of year should we visit Walt Disney World?" I give clients my suggestion on the four best times to visit Walt Disney World, and I've visited during each of these times. I've also visited outside of these dates and I've concluded that these times of the year have more benefits than other times. If you're going to spend the money, time and effort to plan the perfect vacation, it's worth it to go during one of these times. 1. Late January - If you don't like the Florida heat, this is the perfect time to go. Also, the Epcot International Festival of the Arts is happening during this time. The temps can  be unpredictable so make sure you pack a variety of clothing options and layers. Swimming is hit-or-miss in January. Crowd levels and resort room prices are low to moderate.  The Epcot International Festival of the Arts 2. Early May - It's hot, but the summer heat hasn't

Why you should stay at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort - Especially with a Big Family!

Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort transports you to an island paradise! The atmosphere at the resort truly makes you feel like you're in the Caribbean.  The brand new under the sea rooms and the Disney Skyliner are just a few reasons why it's an excellent place to stay for families.  1. Accommodates a family of 6 Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is a very popular moderate level Disney Resort near Disney's Hollywood Studios. As a family of 6, we can stay here, even though it's advertised as having rooms that fit up to 5 guests. This works when one of the guests is age 2 and under. Most rooms have 2 queen beds. There are some rooms called a 5th sleeper room which also have a single bunk. This Murphy style bunk is perfect for most kids under 12, or about 5 feet tall. My kids love to have their own special bed. The infant or toddler can have a Pack 'N Play or a crib in the room as well. You can comfortably fit 4 adults, one child (under 12) and one infant in the 5t
