Even today, there are still several visitors to Walt Disney World who are surprised to find out that there are so many lavishing libation-laden spots to enjoy, right on location within the four theme parks and even at every Resort accommodation.
Because Disney often gets an incorrect connotation for catering exclusively to kids, many Guests come out expecting to get their sipping satisfaction done solely at venues within Disney Springs, or even at select Walt Disney World Resort locations like EPCOT during its famed International Food & Wine Festival.
But the truth is that Disney World always offers up a vast array of delightful drink designations, proudly serving up whatever you’re craving — whether it be fine wine or a craft brew. And because signature drinks and specialty cocktails are all the rage, and margaritas are of particular interest to many, you may rest assured that you can get your fill with these as well. As an example, we’re featuring ten tantalizing margaritas within the range of Walt Disney World’s various Parks and Resort hotel locations.
Over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, adjoining the Park’s signature restaurant Tiffins, you’ll find the delightfully varied Nomad Lounge. Offering up a wide range of light bites and provisions, the claim to fame for Nomad Lounge rests primarily in its vast array of drink offerings.
And as far as margaritas go, the Boto-Rita is one of their most highly hailed favorites. Here you have a blend of Zignum Reposado Mezcal with Combier’s own grapefruit-flavored liqueur, mixed together with lime juice and guava purée.
9. Green Shimmering Margarita
This “glowing” green recommendation is currently being offered up at two locations within Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. While the aforementioned Nomad Lounge serves up its own house specialty version, another notable drinking spot within the Park, Dawa Bar, also proudly features its own rendition.
Both are admittedly similar, with Nomad Lounge recounting theirs as a combination of Casamigos Reposado Tequila, Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur, and Bols Blue Curaçao with simple syrup and both pineapple and lime juice. The offering at Dawa Bar includes all the same ingredients, with the exception of Bols Blue Curaçao.
You don’t need smoke and mirrors to conjure up this crafty concoction, for this is one of several signature staples to be featured at the one and only Abracadabar at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn.
It’s a magic trick in a glass that comes together with el Mayor Tequila pairing so perfectly with Cointreau Orange Liqueur, lime juice, and simple syrup.
7. Kiwi Coconut Rita
Yak & Yeti, over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park, is an exceptional restaurant serving up Asian fusion cuisine with offerings that are both traditional as well as those that are notable novelties. And one of the most mouthwatering specialty cocktails certainly fits the category for the latter.
In bringing together a flavorful featuring of tropical fruity tastes, the Kiwi Coconut Rita comes as a combination of both sweet and sour Coco Reál Cream of Coconut with fresh kiwi mixed together with Milagro Silver Tequila and Cointreau Orange Liqueur.
6. Marvelous Watermelon Margarita
It goes without saying that with a name like “BoardWalk Joe’s Marvelous Margaritas,” this well-loved libation hub would host a wide range of “marvelous” margaritas. And they certainly live up to the expectation!
Their Marvelous Watermelon Margarita is a featured favorite for a refresher, with its combination of Patrón Silver Tequila, lime juice, their own special sweet-and-sour blend, and watermelon flavoring.
Other hits that also come highly recommended here include the following:
- Sunshine Margarita (Lunazul Reposado Tequila, Cointreau, and their sweet-and-sour specialty blend with lime and orange juice)
- Frozen Grand Margarita (Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila, Grand Marnier, lime juice, and their sweet-and-sour blend)
- Patrón Disney Select Añejo Margarita (Patrón Disney select barrel Añejo, Cointreau, and their sweet-and-sour blend)
5. La Cava Avocado
It’s no secret that La Cava del Tequila over in EPCOT is renowned for its many tantalizing tequila tastes, but their one and only avocado-flavored margarita mix remains one of their most highly sought-after sips. Here you have a blended balance of Tromba’s blanco tequila, melon liqueur, fresh avocado, and lime juice, all served up frozen with a hibiscus salt rim.
4. Mo’ara Margarita
We’ve already established by now that Disney’s Animal Kingdom packs a host of wild margarita fixings to enjoy. And if you head on over to the Park’s newest land, Pandora — The World of Avatar, you’ll find another unique ovation-worthy option!
Just head to the famed Pongu Pongu quick service stop and order the mouthwatering Mo’ara Margarita. This flavorful flashy hit gets served up as a fusion of Sauza Conmemorativo Añejo Tequila, Blue Curaçao, lime juice, and a garnishment of passion fruit boba balls.
3. The Outer Rim
Oga’s Cantina, on location within Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Hollywood Studios, is known for serving up an array of out-of-this-world drink options. And their Outer Rim specialty is among one of their most profound ordered beverages.
Here you have a delightful presentation of Patrón Silver Tequila with Stirrings Pomegranate Liqueur, mixed together with lime juice, cane sugar, exotic fruit purée, and a black salted rim. Another popular pick is the Dagobah Slug Slinger with Herradura Reposado Tequila, Bols Blue Curaçao, and a fusion of ginger with other herbs, citrus juices, and bitters.
2. Fiesta Margarita
It’s no secret that the tongue of any margarita lover will be doing the Tango at La Choza del Margarita, on location at EPCOT. And while there are so many “on the rocks” options to lift you up, it’s their frozen fixings that are among some of their most crave-worthy concoctions, especially on a hot and humid day.
First, there’s the Wild Strawberry, which comes as a blend of tequila, strawberry-prickly pear pureé, and LeJay Cassis. Then there’s Mango Loco, which does wonders with tequila, orange liqueur, wild passion fruit, and mango purée.
Not to be outdone is Classic Lime—the satisfyingly sweet and sour combination of lime, tequila, and orange liqueur. And while it may be hard to pick just one from all of the above, the best news of all is that you don’t have to! When you order their rightly named Fiesta Margarita it is a triple delight of all these flavors, layered in a single cup!
1. Ancho Rancho Spicy Margarita
Disney’s California Grill, housed within Disney’s Contemporary Resort, is among one of the most contested signature dining experiences to enjoy. And while the phenomenal food and rooftop viewing take center stage in why Guests most often flock to this location, their wonderful array of libations to be delved into stand firm as a testament to the restaurant’s overall exceptionalism.
And while there are many house specialties to choose from, this spicy-sided margarita is one of the most raved-about dinner drink accompaniments. Here you have the perfect presentation of Patrón Añejo Tequila and Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur, mixed together with lime juice and agave nectar.
As mentioned earlier, you will find a vast array of other delightful drink combinations, both margaritas and otherwise, throughout other extended locations within the Walt Disney World range as well. This includes the Disney Springs social scene as well as other Park and Resort locations we have yet to mention.
But as we highlighted by example here, you don’t even have to leave Disney property to entice your taste buds with some of the most flavorful featured margaritas around. So sip on, wherever you choose to venture within the realm of Disney, with a refreshingly mouthwatering margarita in hand!
