My Can't Miss Cocktail List At Disney's Animal Kingdom

Disney's Animal Kingdom is one of my favorite Parks to spend the day just strolling around and relaxing in. My family often moves from show to show, stopping at the many food kiosks along the ways. It's a phenomenal Park to photograph and just sort of chill out in between thrilling rides on Expedition Everest. Disney's Animal Kingdom beverage program includes some truly fantastic cocktails, so read on for my DAK can't miss cocktail list!





The Yak Attack is a bright and fruity frozen cocktail that you can order up in both Yak and Yeti's dinning room or quick service locations. This drink has been a fan favorite for years now. Mango Daiquiri, Bacardi Superior Light Rum, and a splash of Wildberry flavor combine for a drink that's as pretty to look at as it is delicious.

The unique morning cocktails at the Dawa Bar are an exotic pleasure. There are some inventive Bloody Marys on the menu, but I love a mimosa, and they serve up some interesting takes on this daytime favorite. A mixture of watermelon puree and Graham Beck Brut Rose Sparkling Wine, from South Africa, combine for a crisp and fruity flavor that's highlighted with every bubbly sip.

Not far from Everest, a new addition to the Animal Kingdom bar scene is the Thirsty River Bar and Trek Snacks, and it's full of good things to tempt your taste buds. The The Himalayan Ghost is just one of the Specialty Cocktails available at Thirsty River. This very pink cocktail is made with Snow Leopard Vodka, Guava and Odwalla lemonade that combine for a thirst quenching delight. And - if you'd like to give this a shot without the alcohol, order it up as a Pink Lotus.

I dream about the Coconut Lychee Lemonade at Drinkwallah bar. It is coconut rum, lychee, and lemonade. So refreshing and the bar has a cute little hideaway you can sit in to enjoy your drink!!
