The holiday season is well underway at Disney Parks with all kinds of festive holiday celebrations on both coasts including the Flurry of Fun at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, Disney Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure park, and Holidays at Disneyland Resort.
Holiday cheer in the form of nearly 100 festive beverages have been created by the Disney beverage teams of mixologists offering something to tantalize everyone’s taste buds.
Brian Koziol, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Beverage Director shared:
“Holiday-themed beverages always add to the festive experience. Our mixologists have created a variety of libations using traditional holiday ingredients like baking spices, cranberry, chocolate, pumpkin, and marshmallow. Holidays give them an opportunity to try different combinations of aromas and flavors they typically don’t use throughout the year.”
Here is a very small sampling of some of the holiday beverages you might find at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World:
Tropical Snowstorm | Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto | Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort: This bourbon-based liquid refreshment takes it to the next level for the holidays with the addition of coconut, cinnamon, and sweet tropical syrups. They rim the glass with toasted coconut and serve with a peppermint candy cane. (pictured above)
Very Merry Moonshine | Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ | Disney Springs: This fun spin on their signature moonshine cocktail has the requisite holiday eggnog (with a sugar cookie rim!) and is a delightful sip on the back porch at Homecomin’.
Warm Chocolate Float | Disney Festival of Holidays | Disney California Adventure park: Served warm with whipped cream, brownie crumbles, and chocolate sauce.
Napa Rose S’more | Napa Rose | Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa: This adult drinkable s’more is a wonderful coffee-whiskey libation with dark crème de cacao, topped with whipped cream and a chocolate drizzle.
S’mores Milkshake | Gasparilla Island Grill | Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa: You can’t go wrong with this sippable s’more for all ages! Marshmallow fluff, cream, and chocolate with a graham cracker garnish.
