We’ve got a new challenge for you that will have you seeing RAINBOWS!! Grab some friends and some cash and locate the nearest restrooms (you’ll need it after all these drinks!!) because we’re DRINKING THE RAINBOW at Walt Disney World!
That’s right! We’re remembering our ROYGBIV and running through our top drink choices (with and without alcohol!) for each color of the rainbow! Follow along and see which sips you want to tackle on your next trip!
This color, for whatever reason, seems to dominate drinks in Animal Kingdom! When we asked around for favorite sips in Disney World in this rosy shade, most choices came from there!
Our top pick with alcohol is the Khumbu Icefall at Thirsty River Bar and Trek Snacks in Animal Kingdom. This icy frozen drink is made with Cruzan Guava Rum blended with coconut and raspberry purees topped with a skewer of 3 fresh raspberries! It’s sweet, tart, creamy, and strong!
Other top picks:
Pink Lotus at Thirsty River Bar and Trek Snacks, Animal Kingdom
Himalayan Ghost at Thirsty River Bar and Trek Snacks, Animal Kingdom
Spice Trader Classic at Nomad Lounge and Tiffins, Animal Kingdom
Hightower Rocks at Nomad Lounge and Tiffins, Animal Kingdom
Night Monkey at Nomad Lounge and Tiffins, Animal Kingdom
Long Lost Island at Oasis Canteen, Hollywood Studios
Floral Bitter Beauty at Enchanted Rose Lounge, Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
Our non-alcoholic pick is sweet and simple — the Pink Lemonade Slushy. It’s available at many, many quick snack locations around the parks, and you really can’t go wrong on a hot day with this tart drink.
You’d think red would be a more common drink color, wouldn’t you?! Not so much!! Yep, surprised me too! If you’re in a pinch and of the 21+ crowd, you can count red wine as your red pick. I won’t judge.
Our favorite of the warm-hued colors comes from none other than Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto and Tiki Terrace at the Polynesian Village Resort! The Krakatoa Punch comes with a bright red glow cube floating in the red punch made with Reserved and Spiced Rums, Orgeat (almond) syrup, Tropical Juices, Sam’s Gorilla Grog, and Hibiscus Grenadine. But BEWARE, ordering this drink doesn’t come without its dangers — keep your eyes on the windows in the bar and be prepared to take cover!
Other top picks:
For a non-alcoholic scarlet sip, you could always grab a cherry Goofy’s Glacier or frozen slushy from many spots in the parks, or you could head to Sunshine Tree Terrace in the Magic Kingdom for Redd’s Revenge float.
This shockingly red-hued drink, named after our favorite red-headed pirate (or wench, if you’re still OG about the whole situation like I am!) from Pirates of the Caribbean, is made with Strawberry Dole Whip topped with Strawberry Fanta and garnished with a red white chocolate pirate hat!
Knock knock! Who’s there? Banana! Banana who???
Knock knock! Who’s there?? Banana! Banana WHO???
Knock knock! Who’s there?!? Orange! Orange WHO?!?!
ORANGE you glad we didn’t say banana?!
…queue rimshot…yea, we know that was bad ;)…couldn’t resist!
There are lots of tasty orange concoctions in Disney World, but our top pick takes us to Epcot’s France Pavilion for the Grand Marnier Orange Slush. This Epcot classic is popular for a reason: it’s pretty, it’s tasty, it’s super Instagrammable, and it’s strong! This slush is made with orange juice, Grand Marnier, Rum, and Grey Goose. To be honest, this tastes more orange popsicle than fresh juice to us, but who really cares — it’s TASTY! C’est la vie!
Other top picks:
Maelstrom Margarita at La Cava del Tequila, Epcot
Yub Nub at Oga’s Cantina, Hollywood Studios
Outer Rim at Oga’s Cantina, Hollywood Studios
Flying Yak at Thirsty River Bar and Trek Snacks, Animal Kingdom
Blood Orange Margarita at La Cava del Tequila, Epcot
For a tamer orange bevvy, we recommend POG juice! This goes by a few names but can be found at many places — our top picks are ‘Ohana at the Polynesian Resort and Tusker House Restaurant in Animal Kingdom. This delicious juice is most commonly a mixture of Passionfruit, Orange, and Guava, and it’s a classic Disney breakfast (or any time of day!) drink we love!
Middle of our color rainbow! Our favorite yellow drink comes from the new Oga’s Cantina in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Hollywood Studios. To be honest, you can get a drink in practically every color of the rainbow in this spot alone, but the Fuzzy Tauntaun is extra unique!
This drink is made with Cîroc Peach Vodka, Bols Peach Schnapps, and Simply Orange® topped with tangerine and pure cane sugar and “Buzzz” Foam. The drink is very sweet, but you really get this drink for that foam. Did you know it was extracted from the tooth of a Rancor?! Well, Rancor or not, one lick will make the weirdest sensation in your mouth! My tongue felt numb, hot (like spicy hot) and cold all at the same time! It’s a bizarre sensation worth trying and wears off quickly.
Other top picks:
Spikey Pineapple at Trader Sams Tiki Terrace, Polynesian Village Resort
Snake Alley at Oasis Canteen, Hollywood Studios
For the younger crowd may we suggest the OG Disney yellow drank — the Dole Whip Float. You can pick one up at Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom. Fresh pineapple juice is topped with a perfect swirl of pineapple Dole Whip. Perfection.
So what’s funny when we put together this list — you’d imagine we had a hard time finding green and blue drinks, right? Yeah…not the case at ALL. These two colors were the easiest to fill a list with!
Our favorite green drink has been around for a while now — 10 years, in fact! The Avocado Margarita from La Cava del Tequila may sound off-putting… until you try it. It’s creamy, not too sweet, tart and goes down WAY too easy. Plus, avocado so… it’s healthy, right? It’s served rimmed with tasty hibiscus salt making for some pretty pictures. Do yourself a favor and RUN to the Mexico Pavilion in Epcot to grab you one of these!
Other top picks:
Hawkes’ Grog Ale at Pongu Pongu, Animal Kingdom
Garden Daisy at Enchanted Rose Lounge, Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
Dagobah SLug Slinger at Oga’s Cantina, Hollywood Studios
Welsh Dragon at Rose and Crown Pub, Epcot
Dole Whip Lime Margarita at Barefoot Pool Bar, Polynesian Village Resort
Reggie’s Revenge at Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, Disney Springs
T-16 Skyhopper at Oga’s Cantina, Hollywood Studios
For a non-alcoholic greenie it was a toss-up between Green Milk in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Hollywood Studios or the Peter Pan Float from Storybook Treats in Magic Kingdom. We picked the Peter Pan Float because it’s just so stinkin’ cute. It comes with a cute lil red chocolate feather! Plus, Lime Dole Whip and Sprite don’t sound bad on a hot day!
SO MANY blue drinks to choose from! We love the Arendelle Aqua drinks around Epcot, and the Mo’ara Margarita from Pongu Pongu in Animal Kingdom sure is pretty, but our favorite sleeper pick here is the Toniray Wine from Oga’s Cantina in Hollywood Studios! IT’S BLUE WINE, GUYS!! We saw this and though “Eww…wine and food coloring” but it’s actually incredibly delicious wine! Sure Oga’s has more fun mixed drinks than you can shake a lightsaber at, but this is just too cool looking!
Other top picks:
Fountain of Youth at Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, Disney Springs
Our top pick for blue non-alcoholic drinks is an easy one: Blue Milk from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Hollywood Studios. Even if you taste this coconut and rice milk slush and don’t fall in love with it, you’ve got to say you tried it! Personally, we enjoyed it (especially mixed with the green milk!) If you want a safer bet, grab a blue raspberry slushy from Pinocchio Village Haus in Magic Kingdom or Drinkwallah in Animal Kingdom.
Believe it or not, this was the toughest color to come up with drinks for! Why no love for purple, Disney?! The closest we were happy with calling truly purple is the Rum Blossom at Pongu Pongu in Animal Kingdom.
This adult version of the Night Blossom features purple dessert pear limeade slush swirled with green apple slush, topped with Bacardi Superior Rum and passion fruit boba popping balls. This drink is tasty, sweet, and mega-photographable, especially in front of the nearby Moss Wall!
Our non-alcoholic pick (aside from the Night Blossom!) is the Wonderland Slushy from Cheshire Cafe in Magic Kingdom. This slush swirls frozen Grape Fanta with frozen Minute Maid pink lemonade and is served with a candy-coated straw.
And now you’ve done it! You’ve tasted the entire rainbow at Disney World!
