Cost: $10.00

Location: Available throughout Walt Disney World (keep scrolling for a list of locations), but which character you’ll get could change!

Presentation

I tried this drink smack dab on the 50th Anniversary, October 1, 2021, at Olivia’s Cafe at Old Key West Resort.

This drink is all about lending a hand to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World. You’ll be served a glass of lemonade with a select character poised on the edge.

Possible characters include Minnie, Mickey, Pluto, Stitch, Figment, Gus the Mouse (from Cinderella), Bambi, Tinkerbell, Nemo, Abu, Cheshire Cat, Orange Bird, Chip, Dumbo, or Donald Duck.

To “activate” your drink, pick up the character head and give it the old heave-ho, ala a bath bomb. But don’t expect fireworks… the head will sink to the bottom to work its magic in secret.

With a little stirring, you soon have a magical glitter concoction that is so beautiful, you may wonder if it is edible. The color will change to the color of your character head, and the glitter is on another level.

Taste

I shy away from lemonade, as many versions tend to be very sugary. Throw in a ball of what amounts to be compressed Kool-Aid and I am ready to nope out.

But I was pleasantly surprised at the tart blue raspberry flavor that Minnie’s head added to my lemonade. Disney kept the lemonade VERY tart so that the flavored bauble does all the sweet work. My husband and I shared the drink, but I could have done fine on my own. It was refreshing and not at all too sweet.

Value

With the interactive element, pretty good taste (not too sweet), and the souvenir cup you get to take home, this one is a special little experience that is worth the $10.00 sticker shock.

It’s a $10.00 non-alcoholic drink, sure. I get it. But it’s a fun little activity, and the cup is yours to take home.
