Food for Thought


You can’t visit Walt Disney World ® without indulging in one of their many sweet treats and this week Orlando Fun Tickets wants to highlight the always popular citrus treats available in Magic Kingdom ®.

Since we are the Sunshine State after all, it is no surprise that Walt Disney World ® is filled with citrus everything. From fresh oranges and orange juice to citrus-scented candles smells and right on down to what they serve for dessert, citrus is the flavor of choice at Disney ®. Therefore it was a no-brainer that we had to list the top citrus flavored treats at the park that seems to offer the most – Magic Kingdom ®. Here are our top three:

Dole Whip – One of the main reasons we chose Magic Kingdom ® for today’s treat location is because of this icy and refreshing ice treat right here. Located at Aloha Isle in Adventureland, the Dole Whip is by far one of guest’s favorite ice cream concoctions, citrus or otherwise. This delicious ice cream is a mix of pineapple soft serve and pineapple juice in float form. Other flavors are also available including vanilla and orange. You can also mix together two flavors to create your own version of the Dole Whip. Try pineapple and orange. The result is a delightfully refreshing treat, which is especially helpful on those hot summer days. But even when it’s cooler out, the Dole Whip is still a winner.

Citrus Swirl - Taking the idea of mixing ice cream with fruit the Citrus Swirl is a mixture of frozen orange juice and vanilla soft-serve ice cream. It tastes just like a creamsicle and is equally as delicious as the Dole Whip. Located at the Sunshine Tree Terrace by the Tiki Room in Adventureland, the Citrus Swirl recently returned to the park in its original form after Disney tried revamping its ingredients. Fans couldn’t be more excited and now they can even make it into a float just like the Dole Whip.

Raspberry Lemonade Slush – If you’re not an ice cream fan than you need to try the Raspberry Lemonade Slush. The sweet, cool and tart mix of the two ingredients makes this “drink” both refreshing and an indulgent way to satisfy your sweet tooth. Located at several locations throughout Magic Kingdom including Enchanted Grove, Friar’s Nook and Westward Ho Refreshments, the Raspberry Lemonade Slush is the perfect drink on a hot and humid day and a nice way to get in some delicious citrus flavors!
