When I think about the flavors of Florida my mind goes right to Oranges. Nothing else is so sun-shiny fresh and sweet, it's a flavor that can enhance all sorts of food and drinks. Walt Disney World offers a fun collection of delicious orange flavored things - here are just a few!

Citrus Swirl and an Orange Bird Sipper at Sunshine Seasons in the Magic Kingdom

Frosty, frozen, and swirled with a creamy vanilla soft serve - the frozen orange juice slush is a tart contrast that imparts some legendary flavor. Fans may rave for their Dole Whips, but if you prefer that bright orange flavor, a Citrus Swirl will be your thing. For guests looking to enjoy a more straight forward taste of fresh Florida orange juice, the Orange Bird sipper is an adorable way to partake.

The flavors of chocolate and orange combine in spectacular fashion in this dessert treat at Be Our Guest. A delicate French pastry is jam-packed with Orange-Flavored Custard, and glazed with a deep dark chocolate. Maybe a little on the small side, you might wish you ordered two.

Another unique take on the great flavor of orange pairs it up with locally made Siesta Key Spiced Rum, and that's fantastic because rumor has it this drink was invented in Florida! Classic flavors of the Rum Runner combine Blackberry Brandy, Creme de Banana, and bright Citrus Juices make for a traditional tiki bar treat. You can also find a pretty tasty non-alcoholic orange slush at this Dockside bar.
