Walt Disney World at Christmas is truly magical, and it’s grown and changed, and evolved over the years. From the addition of Festival of the Holidays, extra festive treats, and beverages.
There are so many good ones this year to try and here are 8 Festive drinks around Walt Disney World you shouldn’t miss out on!
1. Hot Cocoa Martini at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
There are 3 different Hot Cocoa Martinis you can try at Hollywood Studios this season. You can grab them individually or get the flight. If I did it again I would just order the Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa Martini.
The trio comes with The Baileys Salted Caramel, Hot Cocoa Martini, and the Black Cherry Bourbon Martini. We are bourbon drinkers but the Bourbon one was awful. So much so we couldn’t even take more than a sip or 2 each and tossed it.
2. Spiced Rum Punch Slush- Epcot- France Alace Holiday Kitchen Festival of the Holidays
France always wins for the best drinks in my opinion, especially when it comes to a slush. Whether it’s Food and Wine Festival, Flower and Garden, a regular day at Epcot or Festival of the Holidays they seriously kill it every time. The Spiced Rum Punch Slush consist of Spiced Rhum, Rhum Clement V.S.O.P, Orange and Pineapple Juice with Cinnamon. Just try it, trust me!
3. Holiday Kir – France Alsace Holiday Kitchen
This was another favorite of mine. It was simple sparkling wine, topped with Monin Cranberry syrup and would make a perfect Christmas cocktail at home too!
4. Snowflake Margarita – Dockside Margaritas at Disney Springs
The Margarita Bar at Disney Springs has always been a great stop. Ever since it got re done with extra seating it’s even better. Stop by in the evenings and enjoy a nice margarita by the water, and some live music.
This Snowflake Margarita was surprisingly tasty. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about the Blue Curaco in it and was afraid it would be to sweet but it was very balanced and not too sweet at all.
5. Wine Slushy- Amorettes Disney Springs
While the Wine Slushy isn’t a seasonal drink, the Apple Cider Flavor is, and it’s delicious. I couldn’t decide on the flavor so I got the Apple Cider Riesling mixed with the Strawberry Syrah and I already can’t wait to have it again.
6. Poinsettia Punch- Trader Sam’s Disney’s Polynesian Resort
Trader Sams is one of my favorite stops, and the patio is a great spot if you can’t get in inside. Especially on a nice evening. I tend to always go for a Spikey Pineapple but decided to change it up this time and try something a little more festive this trip.
The Poinsettia Punch was especially good, and reminded me of a rum punch. It consisted of Myers Dark Rum, Bacardi Superior Rum, St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram, Cranberry Juice, and Falernum with a splash of Lemon Juice. It had the perfect blend of Holiday flavors, and didn’t make me miss my Spikey Pineapple too much.
7. The Holiday Beer Flight – Epcot American Holiday Kitchen
It’s always nice to be able to try several drinks in one stop. My husband and I like to split flights like this because then we can try a little extra. I definitely recommend grabbing the Holiday Beer Flight , it consisted of Orange Blossom Brewing Co Cranberry Kringle Pilsner ( was my favorite of the trio), Shipyard Eggnog White Porter, and JDub’s Season’s Greetings Peppermint Milk Stout.
8. Plyalinda Sparkling Christmas Coffee Blonde – Festive Center Epcot
We have a lot of local breweries at home and I’ve fallen in love with Blonde Coffee Beers. When I saw this listed in the Festival Passport I knew it was a must try on my list. I definitely recommend it if you like coffee beers, or something a little lighter.
