25 Can’t-miss Cocktails, Slushies, and Drinks You Can Try at Disneyland
Add these to the Disneyland itinerary.
Everybody knows Disneyland is dry—yes, after 61 years, you still can’t order up a boozy beverage in the Anaheim park—but trust us when we say it’s all the better for it. You see, not only does Walt’s creation offer a wide range of unique frozen drinks because of it, but the alcoholic options at surrounding bars and restaurants are kicked up a notch to counterbalance it. Some of the greatest gin & tonics, tiki drinks, and beer selections can be found at California Adventure, Downtown Disney, and under-the-radar watering holes inside neighboring Disney hotels, but only if you know where to look for them.
Forget any notion you had of being caught in a liquor-less drought. These 25 concoctions, both alcoholic and far from it, are going to make your next trip more than memorable:
Pomegranate Piranha Lemonade
Beware: this frozen fruity foam-topped lemonade from Bengal Barbecue has a pearl-like surprise floating around its rim.
A walk through New Orleans Square just isn't the same without one of Disneyland's famed lime-and-mint mocktails.
The "Best Hot Chocolate Ever"
This $15 chocolatey indulgence, which can only be found at Napa Rose Lounge in the Grand Californian Hotel, is worth every penny.
Gold Port Galley Lemonade
Take your tastebuds on a trip to the tropics with Harbour Galley's mango, passion fruit, and pineapple sugar-topped freeze.
Honey Bee Frozen Lemonade
Topped with whipped cream and a honey stick, this Hungry Bear Restaurant sipper is a tasty companion to meeting Winnie The Pooh just down the road.
Frozen Pomegranate Silver Sparkler
Sure, this frozen limeade found at Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe is delicious, but its edible silver flakes make it seem somewhat magical.
Enchanted Cherry-Apple Lemonade
A little bit sweet, a little bit apple—it's like this frozen treat from Troubadour Tavern was created for Snow White herself.
Blue Monstro Frozen Yogurt
This glowing cotton candy sipper from Village Haus Restaurant is more eye-popping (and exciting!) than the traditional carnival snack.
Carthay Circle Cocktails
Grab a table at Carthay Circle's walk-up lounge and you're in for one of the best cocktail menus at Disneyland Resort. Don't miss their seasonal martinis or signature gin & tonics.
Dunk one of Uva Bar's tomato lime-flavored popsicles into any beer, and boom! You've got an instant michelada of your choosing.
Cotton Candy Lemonade
You don't need to imbibe to have one of Cove Bar's best beverages, especially when it's this pleasing to both the eye and palate.
Cove Bar's secret menu has plenty of cocktails that in-the-know guests love, like this colorful choice. Looking for something more intense? Order the Zombie, a boozy concoction that packs a punch.
Can't pick just one? At Hearthstone Lounge in Grand Californian Hotel you can sample a selection of top shelf bourbons with ease.
Fillmore’s Fuelin’ Groovy Pomegranate Limeade
Sweet and tangy in the best of ways, this Cozy Cone Motel mainstay is the perfect partner for a hot summer afternoon.
Whether you're interested in a Sculpin IPA from San Diego or a Hefeweizen made right in town, Sonoma Terrace has more than enough options to pick from.
Schmoozie's has plenty of smoothies to calm your post-California Screamin' nerves, but their seasonal choices—like the lip-smacking Caramel Apple Smoothie—are always a solid choice.
Ramone's Pear of Dice
It's true: one sip of this sweet purple soda from Cozy Cone Motel and you'll too be in paradise.
Bananas Foster Martini
They've done the impossible at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney, cramming creamy banana flavors and caramel notes into every sip.
Flo's Classic Neapolitan Shake
Flo's V8 Cafe aims to please, and this vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry concoction topped with "road gravel" does just that.
If you're in search of Disneyland Resort's best margarita, look no further than Tortilla Jo's. Their massive menu, which offers delicately sweet iterations as well as spicy herbal ones, also serves them by the pitcher.
Boysen Apple Freeze
Even if you can't find shade while waiting in line for your favorite coaster, these mango foam-topped slushies from Maurice's Treats will cool you down just fine.
Doc's Wild Grape Tonic
Cozy Cone Motel serves up plenty of A+ drinks, but this colorful crowd favorite may just be its best.
Napa Rose at the Grand Californian Resort offersup some seriously strong cocktails in a truly swanky atmosphere perfect for date night.
We couldn't pick just one drink from Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar's extensive menu, but no matter what you order—especially the Uh-Oa!—expect something out of the ordinary to go down.
Cinnamon-spiced Hot Cocoa
If the line at Starbucks on Main Street is too daunting, opt for this sweet, festive cocoa from Carnation Cafe as a delightful alternative.
