Bloggers dish on their favorite beverages

Greetings folks!  The theme for this week's Friday Five is five summertime drinks. Since we are in Disney World this weekend I thought it would be appropriate to list 5 favorite drinks that can be found at Disney. But wait a minute!  They won't all be MY favorite drinks. They are Must Have drinks from some of the Biggest Disney fans. You may also know them as some of your friendly run Disney bloggers!


So what do they all stand in line for when they visit the world?

1. Monica and Walt ( AKA Disney Bride and Disney Groom) from Running Happily Ever After:
Monica prefers Jungle Juice which is equal parts Orange juice, Passion Fruit, and Guava juice.  Jungle Juice is available at Boma and Tusker house. Walt on the other hand is a fan on the Grapefruit Beer in Germany. I was intrigued when I first heard of this.  Enjoy this quick story from Disney Bride.
 Walt says (without any hesitation) the grapefruit beer at EPCOT Germany. He has a cute story with this one. He stopped to get a drink in Germany during his 1st Disney Marathon. He was standing in line, and someone asked him - how did you do in your race?    He replied - I'll let you know when it's over. He explained he still had 1 mile to go, but he was thirsty. The guest in line bought him a grapefruit beer. Walt has a great photo at the finish line - high fiving Mickey with one hand, and holding the beer in the other. It is his fave WDW drink.

2. Julie from RunWalk Repeat  says her favorite Disney World beverage is a Blood Orange Margarita from Le Cava in Mexico( Epcot).   Chiatali from Running and Enjoying the Journey says her favorite drink can also be found in Epcot. She enjoys the Grey Goose Slushie in the France Pavilion!

3. Amy from Mom's Magical Miles likes to order a Pina CoLAVA (not a typo).  The Pina CoLava is
made  with 2 parts pineapple juice, 1 part Coco Lopez, 1 part Bacardi Razz raspberry rum blended with ice and a small amount of raspberry puree. This drink can be found at Ohana and at the Contemporary pool. Denise from Healthy Family Media (formerly Healthy Disney Family), says her favorite drink can also be found at Ohana. It's the Lapu Lapu which is a tropical rum drink that is served in a pineapple.  Karen from Just Me and My Running Shoes also has a favorite drink that can be found at the Polynesian. It's called Stitch Juice and you can find it at the Ohana Character Breakfast.

4. April from Run the Great Wide Somewhere says her favorite Disney drink can be found at Beaches and Cream at the Beach Club resort. It's Orange Fanta with a shot of Vanilla!

5. And Finally my favorite Disney drink, I have had two drinks that I've really enjoyed at Disney so far. The first is the Chia iced tea at Nine Dragon's restaurant in Epcot. The second yummy drink I've had was a Melon Chi Chi which is like a Pina Colada  but made with melon liqueur which I had at Citricos at the Grand Floridian.

Thank you to all the bloggers who gave their opinions on the best drinks at Disney! 

What is your favorite vacation (or anytime), favorite beverage? -M

  1. Have a great trip! I don't have a special drink we order in Walt Disney World, but my favorite drink in London is a glass of champagne accompanied with strawberries at Wimbledon!

  2. Love this survey! When I'm on vacation I'm always looking for a really good sangria. I'd go to the beach just for that one special place ....

  5. I love how you tied this in with Disney! That's great! When I ran WDW half 5 years ago, my favorite drink was a beer (I can't remember which one) I had in Epcot! With fish and chips on the side. Had to be something British.

  11. On our last pre-Oliver trip, I was obsessed with this mojito with berries that was at several resorts - yum! I think it was called the Power Berry Mojito? I also love the Grey Goose slushie in Epcot. :

  12. I think that jungle juice and stitch juice and the moonshine (from Trails End at Fort Wilderness) are all the same thing. We got the recipe online and made a batch at home (and learned that Eli is allergic to passionfruit juice!). It was good while it lasted though! :) Fun survey!

  15. That Pina Colava sounds delicious! The best drink I ever had was in Hawaii. It was some kind of chocolate, banana and Baileys masterpiece. These days I usually have Diet Coke or a white wine in the summer time :)

  16. Great list. I love getting a cider when in England, because nice and light on a hot day. Also enjoy anything at the Poly served in a pineapple or coconut. Just makes it feel like vacation.

  18. Mmm, great choices! I would probably have to go with the Grand Marnier slushie in France. I do love that Grapefruit beer in Germany though! And Rosa Regale in Italy. And JamJar Sweet Shiraz from Jiko. Hmm...
