Just in time for summer, new alcoholic ice cream beverages have arrived at some of the outdoor food and beverage locations inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort!

In this review, we’ll stop at Min and Bill’s Dockside Diner and Oasis Canteen in the Echo Lake area to check out some new offerings that might help you beat the heat (if you’re 21 years or older).

Sadly replacing the Star Wars-themed Blue Milkshake, there is now chocolate and vanilla alcoholic shake offerings at Min and Bill’s. That being said, they now have both vanilla and chocolate regular shakes here as well (as you might guess), which may make some guests happy.

In case you are unfamiliar, Min and Bill’s is the large boat sitting in Echo Lake near Hollywood Boulevard, just steps away from For the First Time in Forever –  A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration.

While it may not look like anything special, a Bailey’s Irish Cream milkshake is a pretty wonderful thing. I opted for chocolate as I prefer it to vanilla, and I think I made the right choice (although I can’t imagine it would be bad with vanilla either). It has an alcoholic coffee flavor of sorts, so if you like such things, you really can’t go wrong here.

Dreamsicle Float with Stoli Vanilla Vodka ($11.50) – Oasis Canteen, Disney’s Hollywood Studios

New to the menu, there is also a Barq’s Root Beer Float with the very same Stoli Vanilla Vodka in it.

This is basically Stoli Vodka, vanilla ice cream, and orange juice. The Dreamsicle Float is probably the perfect dessert option for summer as it is quite refreshing given the fruit juice and fairly plain ice cream. That being said, it was a particularly hot day when we enjoyed this and it was pretty perfect for such weather. I suspect this will be quite popular as the temperature rises in Central Florida.

It is available non-alcoholic as well, which may be a decent Citrus Swirl substitute for when visiting Hollywood Studios.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!
