First, the Most Magical Place on Earth crushed the whole rose gold game by unveiling a cool, new sparkly pair of Minnie ears. Now comes the news that the Mouse House is offering up what has undoubtedly been our fave cold boozy drink of Summer 2K17: Wine Slushies. Yes, Disney World is currently having itself a seriously trendy moment.
We'll give you a minute to go check prices of flights to Orlando.
For the record, my kids are 15 and 12, and the last time we took a trip to The DW was in June of 2009. Yes, June. Because there's nothing like waiting in a two-hour line to ride Dumbo in the scorching Florida heat. You know what would have taken the edge off that torturous wait? A nice, big frozen cup of wine. But alas, they didn't sell alcohol inside the theme park back then.
Of course, that didn't stop me from co-opting my kid's sippy cup to sneak in a glass of Chard from Wolfgang Puck's just-shuttered Grande Cafe. What can I say? I'm not much of a rule follower. Which is why these wine slushies—which come in flavors like Mango Moscato and Strawberry Shiraz and are already served up in convenient to-go cups at Amorette's Patisserie in Disney Springs—are right up my alley.
So if you're up for a little pre-park, pre-game sesh, you know where I'll be.
