Dole Whip Floats at the Disneyland Hotel

One of my favorite treats at the Disneyland Resort is the Dole Whip float (I know… obviously) But did you know that you can get said float with a splash of rum?

Yep!  If you head over to The Coffee House, located at the Disneyland Hotel, you can pick up a Dole Whip float with a splash of either coconut rum or spiced rum.

My personal favorite is the spiced rum, I love how the flavors complement each other.  You get the spice of the rum and the sweet tangy goddesses of the float (ugh it’s so good). The coconut rum with the Dole whip is a little too tropical for me. But if you’re a fan of pinā colada’s you’ll probably love it.

During my last visit, I saw they added new options to the specialty menu. They now have cold brew coffee frappe with a splash of Baileys or Kailúa liqueur. I know when I hear frappe I think of a blended coffee drink, but it’s essentially an iced coffee.

The spiked drinks come out to about  $10.51 when text is added. Like all alcoholic drinks on the Disney property, annual pass holders discounts don’t apply.

My final thoughts for the float is if you want to add a 21+ flare to your Dole Whip float, I think it’s worth the money. True, the float on its own is less expensive plus if you have an annual pass your discount will apply.  But to me, the rum Dole Whip floats are a fun twist on a Disney classic.

Grabbing one of these is a great way to take a break during your visit. You have to drink the spiked treats on the hotel property. But fear not there’s ample seating all around, there are tables adjacent to the coffee shop. Walk a bit further past the hotel’s pool, and you’ll find seating at the Tangaroa Terrace outdoor patio.  My personal favorite seat to enjoy my treat is by the fireplace across the street from Trader Sam’s.

Honestly one of my favorite places at the Resort

Just as a heads up, depending on who pours your drink, your beverage might contain a splash of rum or a punch of rum. Between the times I’ve ordered the boozy float the strength has changed, but all in all one of my favorite treats at the Parks.

Have you ever tried one of these treats? Whatcha think? Let me know in the comments below! Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you real soon 🙂

Disneyland Vlog: First Time Using Maxpass!

Hey There! How’s it going? I’m back after a hiatus and I’m so excited to be back sharing more Disney goodness with you.

First up, is a special flashback vlog of my first time using the MaxPass feature at the Disneyland Resort. I absoulety love how the MaxPass makes your day flow so easily. Especially when you’re in a big group, now none of your friends have to run to either park to get a fastpass for everybody. Add to that, the feature to download your photopass pictures it’s honestly my favorite way to navigate the parks.

Friday 5Day: The Hunchback of Norte Dame Musical

Hey there! How’s it going? Now open at the Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey, The Hunchback of Notre Dame (THND)  musical is getting closer and closer to Broadway. After my lovely chat with the Disney Hipsters, who saw the show last night, I thought I’d share 5 things I’m looking froward to about the musical. Without further ado here we go:

1. The Music

I’m a HUGE fan of this score. The music from the movie is some of my favorite Disney music of all time, and to be able to hear the music played by a live orchestra… would be amazing

2. The Costumes

To me, one of the aspect that made THD stand out was the costumes. Even animated all the attention to detail to show the personality of each character I found incredible, Looking at promo pictures for the show, I can see Alejo Vietti was able to do the same.

3. The Sets

I’m interested to see how set designer Alexander Dodge translated the gothic feel of medieval Paris onto the stage, but judging by the promo pictures he’s done a fantastic job.

4. Ciara Renee

I’m a huge fan of Ciara Renee who plays Esmeralda, and I can’t wait to see her interpretation of one of my favorite Disney characters.

5. “Someday”

I know I’ve covered music, but this is my favorite song from THND. When I heard that they put the song into the musical I got really excited.

Friday 5Day: Disney Animatied Movies into Live Action Remakes

Hey there! How’s it going? With the announcement of the live action remake of Dumbo, and Cinderella (officially) being released today, I thought I’d count down 5 Animated Disney films I wouldn’t mind seeing a live action remake of. So without further ado here we go:

1. Treasure Planet

e8df4f171502ac0e5647eb72e9040bd7d494f52b

This is one of my favorite films, and I think with the special effects technology around nowadays, a live action version of this film would be awesome

2. Tangled

Tangled_rapunzel_poster_20

A live action version of Tangled would be so cute! Disney hasn’t had a live action musical in a while, and….the Lantern scene… in real life… Yes please..

3. Atlantis: The Lost Empire

Atlantis_The_Lost_Empire_poster

This is another one of my favorites that I think special effects can enhance. I also think the movie could be tied into the Finding Nemo attractions in the parks nicely.

4. Aladdin

aladdin-poster

True, there’s technically live action versions of this currently on Broadway and in Disneyland, but for those of us that can’t make it to New York (raises hand) or the parks, to See Aladdin and Jasmine singing a whole new world on the big screen would be awesome!

5. Kim Possible

Disney's_Kim_Possible

This isn’t a Disney Film, but it’s still one of my favorite animated Disney shows. I also think that Kim Possible opens itself up to having sequels, and being a huge franchise. I love Black Widow from The Avengers but,  it would be nice to see another girl out there fighting the bad guys 🙂

Which animated Disney Film would you like to see a live action version of? Let me know in the comments below. Thanks for watching and I’ll see you real soon 🙂

Wordy Wednesday: Timothy A. Mouse

Hey there! How;’s it going? Last weeks Wordy Wednesday was how It all started with a mouse ,  but with the announcement of the live-action remake of Dumbo, I got to thinking of another one of my favorite mice, with great advice… Timothy A. Mouse.

“Dumbo, I think your ears are beautiful. Sure, I think they’re decorative.”

A good friend will help you love yourself...

A good friend will help you love yourself…

“…Dumbo, you’re standing on  the threshold of success. Don’t look down, it’ll make you dizzy.”

Keep moving forward...

Keep moving forward…

“You outta be ashamed of yourselves! A bunch of big guys like you, picking on a little guy like him!”

Good friends always have your back...

Good friends always have your back…

“The very things that held you down, are going to carry you up and up and up!”

Embrace your “Glitch” as Vanelope would say 🙂
