Like Olaf, my favorite season is summer, and I do not fare too well in the heat, especially at Disneyland.
Since not everyone can have their own personal snow flurry, we rounded up the best drinks (both non-alcoholic and alcoholic) to have on a hot summer’s day throughout the Disneyland Resort! Do not let the heat turn you into a puddle; cool off and stay hydrated with one of these refreshing delights.
Root Beer Float
Drink: Barq’s Root Beer and Vanilla Ice Cream
Location: The Golden Horseshoe and Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor
Are you a fan of root beer floats? Well, imagine having one at Disneyland. They don’t hold back on the ice cream, and it’ll be sure to satisfy your thirst and keep you cool throughout the day.
Dole Whip Float
Drink: Pineapple soft serve and Pineapple Juice
Location: Tiki Juice Bar
Located right as you enter Adventureland, this classic drink was made for hot weather. The nutritious, whole pineapple juice and non-dairy dole whip will lift your energy and won’t leave you feeling weighed down.
Drink: Sugar water, Lime Juice, and Creme de Menthe syrup
Location: New Orleans Square
This classic drink has its own bar right behind Cafe Orleans. This Southern non-alcoholic drink served on the rocks and topped with mint leaves will be sure to leave you cool.
Drink: Mangos, Peaches, Banana, and Lowfat Yogurt blended with Orange, Pineapple, Guava and Passion Fruit Juices
Location: Schmoozies in Hollywoodland
This smoothie is the next best thing to Jamba Juice inside the parks. Grab this fruity drink to quench your thirst on a hot Disney day!
Drink: Strawberry Vodka blended with Pineapple Juice, Cream of Coconut, Strawberry Purée and Blue Curaçao
Location: Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar
This blue and red frozen drink is a play on its own name. It’s one of the sweetest and most tropical tasting drinks on the menu. This is quite the catch for people who love pineapple, coconut, and blended drinks.
Drink: Beso Del Sol Red Sangria made from a 100% natural marriage of Spanish Tempranillo Grapes, Orange, Blood Orange, and Lemon Juices with a touch of natural Cinnamon
Location: Wine Country Trattoria
This drink comes in a sizable wine glass abundant with fresh fruits.
Karl Strauss Red Trolley Ale
Drink: Irish Red Ale with hints of Raisins, Currants, and Toffee
Location: Award Wieners
Beer is naturally refreshing, but what sets this brew from the rest is its smooth quality and hints of caramel.
You definitely don’t need to let rising temperatures ruin your visit to your favorite Disney park. Grab one of these refreshing beverages and beat the heat!
