Kid-Friendly Drinks at Walt Disney World to help you Beat the Heat

Kid-Friendly Drinks at Walt Disney World to help you Beat the Heat

Looking for Drinks at Walt Disney World for Kids? If you’re like most people, you will be visiting Walt Disney World when its hot. Even as we write this post in January, the high today is 85. Which isn’t terrible, but factor in humidity and who knows how hot it will feel. Fast forward to the spring and especially summer and you’re looking at sweltering heat. Walt Disney had at one point planned for a temperature controlled dome for Walt Disney World, which would have definitely helped! But for now, if you’re looking for a cold, sippable treat to help keep you cool, here are some of our favorites! This is our kid-friendly version, so these are all good choices if you have little ones.

Drinks at Walt Disney World for Kids

Kid-Friendly, non-alcoholic drinks at Walt Disney World are not necessarily hard to find, but where do you eve start to look? Thankfully, after a visit one terribly hot summer in Florida, we decided to pull together our favorite kid approved drinks. Perfect for both kids and adults.

The American Dream  | EPCOT World Showcase

Found in Epcot, in you guessed it, America, at Fife and Drum to be exact. We stumbled upon this delicious concoction a few years ago when we were in search of root beer floats. And instead we found this little beauty. Blue Raspberry and Cherry Icee swirled with vanilla soft serve. A perfect hot day drink.

Frozen Hot Cocoa | Blizzard Beach

Found at Lottawatta Lodge in Blizzard Beach, this pairs great with a side of mini donuts. If you haven’t heard, mini donuts are all the rage and can be found right across from the Lodge in a little snack booth. Perfect with the themeing of the Blizzard Beach, this was definitely a treat in the hot Florida sun.

Primavera | EPCOT World Showcase

Found at Gelati, by the entrance of the Italian Pavilion this blend of strawberry, banana and peach is light and delicious. Perfect for cooling off. Be sure to grab some gelato while here if you’re looking for a snack. 

Frozen Chai | Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom usually gets lost in the jumble of “best” lists, but Frozen Chai? Yumm! This one is made by the folks at Joffrey’s Coffee Co. and can be found right across from Kali River Rapids at Royal Anandapur Tea Company. It is made with tea, so does have some caffeine but not enough to keep it off our kid-friendly drinks at Walt Disney World list.

Probably one of our top favorites on the list, this treat can be found at Harambe Market in Animal Kingdom. Frozen Strawberry and Passionfruit make this delicious and refreshing without being too sweet.  For an added touch, get it in the Ocarina souvenir cup, complete with music sheets. So fun!


New Disney Snacks Disney Space Ranger Slush at the Lunching Pad Magic Kingdom

Space Ranger Slush

This Space Ranger Slush is a combination of green apple slush and purple grape slush. Stirred together with a green apple rock candy straw! You can find this cool slushy drink over at The Lunching Pad in Magic Kingdom, right near Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. They also have fun mickey pretzels here too! So grab a seat and take a break from the heat!

Frozen Jungle Juice

Whether you call this Jungle Juice or POG, if you’ve never tried it, it needs to go on your Walt Disney World bucket list. We love it so much, we’ve even done copycat POG popsicles!  A mix of Passionfruit, Orange and Guava, the juice itself can be found at Ohana, which is where we originally tried it.  But you can also find this at Kona Cafe, both restaurants at the Polynesian Village Resort.  Jungle Juice can be found frozen at The Mara at Animal Kingdom Lodge and it comes with lunch on the Wild Africa Trek.

Lemonade Slush | Magic Kingdom

Scattered throughout Walt Disney World, this can be found in both the lemon, strawberry and raspberry flavors. Found at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, it’s a staple in Magic Kingdom.

Goofy’s Glaciers | Magic Kingdom

We love these drinks! Found at  the Big Top Souvenirs Treat counter in Fantasyland, this slushy is perfect for hots days at Disney. And if you’re up for a little adventure, ask them to mix flavors to customize this Glacier to your preference.

Dole Whip Float | Magic Kingdom

Seriously, how can you talk about Walt Disney World without mentioning a dole whip? The Dole Whip Float can be found at Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom and at the Polynesian Resort’s Pineapple Lanai. By far one of our favorite drinks at Walt Disney World, this dole whip float takes it up a notch by adding pineapple juice. We love the extra vitamin C to help ward off sunburn. 

nomad lounge at animal kingdom

Zingiber Fizzie | Animal Kingdom

If you’re looking to get out of the heat, head to Nomad Lounge in Animal Kingdom on the pathway to Pandora. Here you can find this drink with passion fruit puree, ginger beer, mint and lime. Very refreshing! 

LeFou’s Brew | Magic Kingdom

LeFou’s Brew has quite a following. Once considered the “Butterbeer” of Magic Kingdom, this is a apple cinnamon-y, gingery, cider drink. Found at Gaston’s Tavern in Fantaslyland, this frozen drink is topped with a Passionfruit froth to give it that “brew” look. With so many flavors, you can be the judge if this drink is up your alley. We thought it was a little too sweet, but on a hot day we’ll take what we can get! 

Bottomless Milkshake | Wilderness Lodge

Found at Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, these Bottomless Milkshakes will run you $8.50, but are All-You-Care-To-Enjoy. They are served in a mason jar and are delicious. Available in Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla or Caramel, these are great to share.

Padawan Limeade

With Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge taking over much of Hollywood Studios, Backlot Express got pulled into the fold as the new Star Wars themed quick service dining.  As part of the refresh, you can now find Padawan Limeade! This drink is a Pomegranate Limeade, not too sweet and also offered in a souvenir BB8 cup. 

pongu pongu night blossom drink at pandora

Night Blossom | Animal Kingdom

The Night Blossom can be found in Pandora at Pongu Pongu. A little sour, a little sweet and is perfect for hot sunny days. Word of caution- while this is very delicious, you may want to consider sharing it. Its sweetness can become a little much on a sweltering hot day. And you can request it without the boba balls too, in case tapioca isn’t your thing .

Frozen Mint Julep Lemonade | Magic Kingdom

Found at Casey’s Corner in Magic Kingdom this slushy drink is pretty sweet with a touch of mint. Great if you’re passing through the crowds and need something cool to sip. And we always love the Mickey straw to add a little extra Disney and another free souvenir to our collection. If you’re in a hurry, you can mobile order this drink alongside a quick bite to keep from standing in those lines!

Secret Identity Slushy | Hollywood Studios

Found at the Neighborhood Bakery in Pixar Place alley this is a Frozen Coca Cola slush, topped with cherry cotton candy, cherry pop rocks and whipped cream. The cotton candy and pop rocks will blend right into your drink for a subtle hint of cherry, not too sweet for a perfectly balanced cherry coke flavor.

Wonderland Slushy | Magic Kingdom

Found at the Cheshire Café in Magic Kingdom, this new drink may be one of our favorites! Layered Fanta Grape Slushy and Minute Maid Raspberry Lemonade topped off with a candy coated straw.  This drink is as pretty as it is delicious. Not too sweet and not too tart, this slushy is refreshing and perfect for hot days. 

Disney Special Drinks TIPS

  • Even if you’re only grabbing one sweet drink, we still recommend LOTS of water as a general rule. It’s one of our top 10 tips. 
  • Fill your water bottle full with ice cubes before you leave for the day so as it melts, you will have ice cold water until you need a refill. 
  • Many of these kid-friendly summer drinks are available with snack credits on the Disney Dining Plan, just look for the DDP notation next to it on the menu.
  • Don’t forget to check out Starbucks for light teas and lemonades too. Many can all be used as a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan. 

What drinks have we missed? What are your favorite cold drinks to enjoy while at Walt Disney World?
