Whether you’re looking for frozen drinks, non-alcoholic drinks, specialty drinks or just something cold on your park day, these are some of the Best Drinks at Disneyland.
Growing up going to Disneyland, I don’t really remember much about the food and drinks there. I have a picture of me eating a churro, so I remember they had them then. But it wasn’t until the last couple years that I’ve really taken note of the food offerings at the park.
There are so many choices these days when it comes to food and drink. And as I’ve gotten older and started hosting parties, having good food is always a must, but I’ve found having a delicious drink has become one of my favorite things to make and serve for my guests.
I have not only become more aware of the food at Disneyland, but the drinks at Disneyland as well. I’ve been shocked at how many drink options there are now. And I love trying them all. I consider myself the Official Disney Drink Taster.
Because I don’t drink alcohol, all of the drinks shown here are non-alcoholic. You can find alcoholic drinks around the park, more so in California Adventure, but there are so many delicious non alcoholic options.
I love a good mocktail and have several mocktail recipes here on my blog in fact. You can see all mocktail recipes or check out my favorites like this virgin margarita mocktail, mai tai mocktail or arizona sunset.
Best Drinks at Disneyland
One of the very first specialty drinks I ever tried was the Ramone’s “Pear of Dice” soda. It is a yummy blend of prickly pear and sprite that is not too sweet and super refreshing. You can find it at Cozy Cone #1.
You can’t underestimate a cold soda on a hot park day. It sure does hit the spot. But my favorite place to grab a cold soda is from Refreshment Corner on Main Street.
At the Refreshment Corner you can add cherry, raspberry, vanilla or a combo of any of those, to your favorite soda. Plus they have some really yummy ice. I love good ice.
You can also find some good ice over in Galaxy’s Edge. One of my favorite drinks from Batuu is from Ronto Roasters, the meiloorun juice. It’s a refreshing blend of pineapple, blueberry, cranberry, lemon and desert pear with lemonade. It’s so good.
One of the newest and more interactive drinks comes from Pym Test Kitchen. The Proton Punch is no ordinary lemonade. The addition of berry puree, cherry filled boba and the cool pipette filled with grenadine, makes this drink so yummy. And fun! My kids loved that pipette.
Best Non-Alcoholic Drinks at Disneyland
As I mentioned above, I don’t drink alcohol. These next drinks would be what I consider mocktails at the park.
One of the most popular drinks in Disneyland is the Mint Julep. At the mint julep bar, you can find this refreshing drink as well as the popular and delicious mickey shaped beignets.
For years the original mint julep from disneyland had a very distinct green color. In fact, I’ve got a mint julep copy cat recipe. You can make it green or leave out the food coloring and keep it closer to the color it is now in the parks.
A mint julep is a delicious blend of mint and limeade. Some people find it to be too minty. And prefer the seasonal flavors that come out. The strawberry mint julep is really good too.
On the menu at Lamplight Lounge in California Adventure you will find a selection of alcoholic drinks but also some delicious mocktails. The mint to be is very refreshing. A mix of watermelon, berry and mint mixed with soda water. I loved this one because of the bubbles.
But my favorite drink from Lamplight Lounge is the 2319. Now hear me out. You might think it sounds like it’d be weird because of the Coca Cola, but it is not.
The 2319 is a frozen drink with pineapple, berry, coconut and then topped with Coke. It might be considered too sweet for some, but I like a little sweetness in my drinks.
Oga’s Cantina in Galaxy’s Edge is one of the few places in Disneyland, actual Disneyland Park, where you can find alcohol. But again, that wasn’t for me.
Instead we tried some really fun non-alcoholic drinks from the menu. The Hyperdrive Punch It is probably the most popular drink. Then the Blue Bantha which is the blue milk served chilled.
I say, if you head into Oga’s, take a look at the menu and read all the crazy concoctions they offer and decide which one to try. You might be shocked at how delicious osome of those combinations actually are.
Frozen Drinks at Disneyland
Frozen drinks at Disneyland are my favorite kind of drinks there. There are so many options available all around the park. Even in January, I am drinking a frozen drink.
The Boysen Apple Freeze from Maurice’s Treats is one of the best frozen drinks at Disneyland. It’s frozen apple juice with Boysenberry syrup and cream on top. If you could only try one frozen drink when you’re in the park, this is the one to try.
Maurice’s Treats in a little cart off to the left of the castle, across from the royal theatre. You can also grab a yummy treat while you’re there. Don’t skip the churro gears.
The frozen lemonade seems like a Disneyland classic. You can find the frozen lemonade in several carts around the park. It is super refreshing!
Did you know you could add cherry or strawberry to your frozen lemonade? Sometimes frozen lemonade can be a bit tart. But with a little added burst of fruit, it sweetens it up in the perfect way.
The frozen apple juice is one of the frozen drinks I get almost every trip. I pick it up from the cart across from Red Rose Tavern, next to Casey Jr.
It’s usually on my way from Tomorrowland as I head over to Big Thunder Mountain. Or vice versa. You can also pick it up from Edelweiss Snacks across from the Matterhorn.
It tastes just like you think. Apple juice in slush form. It’s so good.
You may not have seen these next drinks, Goofy’s Glaciers. They are hidden away in the back of the Candy Palace. You may have been too distracted by all the sweet treats in the case.
With Goofy’s Glaciers you can try all kinds of flavors and mix them however you want. This is a pink lemonade and cherry combination. But they have raspberry and mango as well.
The jungle julep is a real treat. Full of delicious flavors like pineapple, orange, grape and lemon. You can grab this one from Bengal BBQ. But be warned. It usually gives me a brain freeze.
Seasonal Frozen Drinks at Disneyland
The delicious frozen drink comes from Galactic Grill. It is the POG slush. The POG slush has Passion Fruit, Orange and Guava flavors and is really good. It is not there all the time. But I included it because Galactic Grill often has a specialty slush.
Even though these frozen drinks change seasonally, you can check to see what is available while you’re at the park. And if you’re there during HalloweenTime, check to see if they have the blood orange slush. It’s my favorite frozen drink from Galactic Grill.
They tend to come with glow cubes. But sometimes you can order them without the glow cube. So check to see if that is an option when you order your slush.
Frozen Drinks in Galaxy’s Edge
Have you heard of the milk stand in Galaxy’s Edge? People are pretty adamant about being team blue milk or team green milk. And some people don’t care for it one bit. It’s a texture thing they say.
My family loves the green and blue milk. If my kids had to pick one, it would be blue. It kind of tastes like skittles. The green milk tastes a bit more floral than fruity.
But our favorite way to drink the blue and green milk is together! We ask for an extra cup and mix the two together. It is a great way to enjoy these drinks.
Frozen Drinks at California Adventure
My favorite frozen drink in California Adventure is the frozen coke. You might want to know if the frozen coke is like a slurpee. And the answer is yes, yes it is.
You can only find the frozen coke in one place at the parks. It is at a cart at the end of pixar pier across from the silly symphony swings. At the cart they have frozen coke but they also have Frozen Jack and Coke. If you are looking for a little something extra in your frozen coke.
The cart also offers frozen lemonade, frozen cherry and frozen raspberry drinks if frozen coke is not for you.
At Bing Bong’s you can find all kinds of merchandise, treats and what they like to call Memory Refreshers. Memory refreshers are frozen drinks that you can create on your own, or choose from the menu.
They have lots of different flavors to choose from and you can add flavor filled boba to your memory refreshers. You can also add nerds to the top of your drink. There are so many options. Your kids would love to go and create their own one day.
Now there has been some debate on whether or not this next one is actually considered a drink or not. But we are going with a drink for this Route Beer Float you can find at the Cozy Cone. And a rootbeer float is just a total classic treat.
OK. I’ve said I don’t drink alcohol more than once here. And I don’t. But I do love a salted rim on a mocktail! And I actually can have both at the parks!
Over at Rita’s Baja Blenders in Pacific Wharf at DCA they have both alcoholic and nonalcoholic frozen drinks with salted rims. You can find Margaritas and Sangria there. The non-alcoholic options are the Tropicool flavors.
The tropicool flavors are cherry, lemon-lime, strawberry, and blue raspberry. When I ordered my lemon-lime topicool, I asked if they could salt the rim of my cup and they did! Love that hint of salt with the tart and sweet. It was a great combo.

And if you are planning a trip to the parks, make sure and check out all my Disney Travel posts. I’ve got lots of tips and ways to help save you time and money at the parks.
One of the ways I save money is buying multiple day tickets. The only place I purchase my Disney vacations is from Get Away Today. They have discounted Disneyland tickets over the gate prices. Plus they have layaway and their tickets are refundable.
You can also find deals on hotels. They often have 4th night free deals on some of the best hotels in the Anaheim area. I’ve written reviews on some of my favorite Anaheim Area Hotels. Read up about the Homewood Suites, Howard Johnson, and Residence Inn. Just a few of the hotels I recommend.
