Disney World is the most magical place on Earth. We all know it. I’ve been twice with my kids, and visited a couple times as a kid myself. I can attest to the joy and happiness — it’s contagious and it’s everywhere. The Disney powers that be know exactly what they are doing and make life for us parents as pleasant as possible. From free Baby Care Centers on site to convenient stroller rentals, shipping services, Fast Passes, Memory Makers, and character breakfasts, they really seem to think of it all. And recently, the geniuses at Walt Disney World have added one more exciting addition to the park that’s making moms everywhere squee with delight.
I’m talking about Shiraz wine slushies. I repeat: THERE ARE WINE SLUSHIES AT DISNEY WORLD, Y’ALL!
The new menu item is available now at Amorette’s Patisserie, and I’m pretty it’s single-handedly solidified that my next Disney vacay is going to be 10 times as magical.
What’s that, kids? You want to leave me here for a few hours while you head over to Magic Kingdom and ride Space Mountain? TOTALLY fine. I’m just going to treat myself to this delectable frozen beverage over here and cool right off.
(And option #2, if your kids are with you, this place has lots of fun choices for them too, like Mickey brownies and Mickey Mousse). Either way, wine slushies for the win.
These aren’t the only exciting new perks to hit Walt Disney World this summer, though. In July, a new transportation option was unveiled for guests staying at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort and Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts: The Minnie Van! And it’s insanely adorable (not to mention convenient).
You can order your very own private Minnie Mouse Van Service straight from your smartphone by using your Lyft app. So after you’ve enjoyed a shiraz slushie (or two, I mean you are on vacation), why not hop into this adorable vehicle that can zip you right over to a park or your hotel? Available all day, between the hours of 6:30 and 12:30 AM, this service accommodates up to six guests and provides two versatile car seats, because again, it’s Disney and they think of everything.
And while you’re there, why not hit up one of the latest hot items to hit Disney’s gift shops — sequined rose gold Minnie ears.
Wearing Minnie ears is a time-honored tradition from babies to grownups, but these might be the fanciest ones yet. Personally, I wasn’t much a fan of the black traditional ears for myself, but I would definitely rock one of these sparkly headbands and take 20 selfies with my daughter. (Come on, you know you do too.)
So there you have it, friends — you can now don your new fancy rose gold ears, call your Minnie van, and hop on over to Amorette’s for a slushie when the clock strikes wine o’clock. If that’s not a truly magical combo, I’m not sure what is!
