Whoever said Disney World is for kids has to go back to Disney World.
Unless you’re someone who hates stories, amazing themes, immersive rides, thrilling attractions, Broadway-level shows, fireworks, mouth-watering food, and the ability to feel a sense of the irresistible magic, Disney World is for you, no matter how old you are.
What if the fantastic theme parks don’t convince you, what if we tell you that their alcoholic drinks are some of the best you’ve ever tasted? As long as you’re 21, the world is your oyster (literally you can drink the whole world at EPCOT). The large amount of alcoholic beverages that are not only available but incredibly unique and handcrafted is immense and you will surely be hard pressed to make up your mind.
Besides Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney Springs all sell alcoholic drinks that you can sip throughout the park. At the Magic Kingdom, the only way to get an alcoholic drink is inside a table service restaurant.
With so many options to choose from, you might be wondering where to start. EPCOT is often a fan favorite when it comes to eating and drinking at Disney World, as the World Showcase offers insane variety to visitors. Personally, I also appreciate EPCOT’s offerings, as they are often focused on the country you are in, and sometimes you might try a drink that you usually wouldn’t get in a bar.
While there are plenty of delicious options out there, if I had to recommend a drink for you on your next Walt Disney World vacation, it’s Violet Sake in Japan. Served at the Garden House, the drink is a stunning purple color, great for Instagram, and topped with a sliced lemon. The drink tastes like a sweet juice and perfectly complements the sake. I’m someone who thinks that if you drink something you shouldn’t have the look of disgust on your face, and Violet Sake certainly won’t. The drink costs $ 9.00, which is actually a lot cheaper than many other drinks at Walt Disney World Resort.
I have never met anyone who doesn’t like the drink so please note that it is highly regarded if you choose to try it. That being said, nothing is for everyone, so there’s a chance you won’t like it. Luckily, I’ve been able to get samples at Garden House before, so if you ask the Cast Members for a small sample, they might be able to let you try it out before you buy it.
Have you ever tasted Violet Sake in Japan at EPCOT? What’s your favorite Walt Disney World drink?
