Stay Cool This Summer with Cold Treats at Disneyland Resort
Alex Dunlap, Food & Beverage Content Relations Coordinator
Sometimes, the best way to beat the heat is with a cold, sweet treat! At Disneyland Resort, there are plenty of treats to cool off with around every corner. Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Bars, Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Sandwiches, Frozen Bananas, and Strawberry Fruit Bars can be found at ice cream carts and various other locations across the property, and if that’s not enough, I’ve got a whole list of some of my favorite frozen snacks!
Disney California Adventure Park
Drive on down to Radiator Springs to Flo’s V8 Cafe to grab one of Flo’s Classic Shakes available in vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry with “Road Gravel” cookies and cream crumble topping. There’s also the Supercharged Creamy Orange Shake available for the limited-time Pixar Fest. What’s even better? You can even get any of these shakes in a cool souvenir mug!
If you’re over at Pixar Pier, you have to stop by Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats, where you can get non-dairy “It’s Lemon!” soft-serve in a cone! Get it “Snowcapped” with white chocolate topping or try the Pixar Pier Parfait with “It’s Lemon!” soft-serve and blue raspberry swirl.
In Hollywood Land, treat yourself to a delicious fruit smoothie at Schmoozies! Try the Mango Madness, the Berry Schmoozie, or the Strawberry Banana Sensation – YUM! There’s also the Lavender Lemonade Extreme Refresher beverage.
Take a trip to Maurice’s Treats in Fantasyland to try the Boysen Apple Freeze or the Red Rose Lemonade Freeze and you’ll be cooled down in no time!
If you’re taking a break in New Orleans Square, stop by the Mint Julep Bar for one of the most popular non-alcoholic drinks at Disneyland – the New Orleans Mint Julep!
Over in Adventureland, who could pass up that classic Pineapple Dole Whip Soft-Serve or Dole Whip Float served at the Tiki Juice Bar? Or if you head over to Bengal Barbecue, you can try the Jungle Julep – a refreshing slush of pineapple, orange, grape, and lemon juices. It’ll make your taste buds roar!
Taking a taxi ride through Toontown? Stop by Clarabelle’s for some soft-serve frozen yogurt. You can even get Mickey and Minnie Sundaes or an Olaf Frozen Lemonade Bar.
Take a rocket to Alien Pizza Planet in Tomorrowland, and you’ll discover Alien Ice slushes, available in sour apple or strawberry – ooooooooooooo that sounds refreshing!
Downtown Disney District
Feelin’ the heat on that shopping spree? Jamba Juice is offering refreshing fruit smoothies with a yummy seasonal favorites like watermelon. Basically, there are TONS of flavors to choose from! You definitely can’t go wrong here as there’s something for everyone.
Stop by the Diggity Dog Cart to cool down with a Frozen Kiwi Strawberry or Blue Raspberry Granita Slush. The Wetzel’s Pretzels Cart next door is serving Frozen Lemonade and Strawberry Lemonade as well!
