REVIEW: Sno-Cones Return to the Magic Kingdom Just In Time for Summer Heat
For a period, guests could obtain a sno-cone treat at the Magic Kingdom over at Prince Eric’s Village Market in New Fantasyland. Many were upset when the snack was removed from the location and left without a home, but they will be happy to know that the treat is back at the park.
Pretty much across the path from the Cool Ship and the Pizza Frusta in Tomorrowland, the cart adjacent to the popcorn cart now has sno-cones. Flavorings are available including grape, cherry, blue raspberry, or you can do a combination of any of those flavors.
Flavored ice may seem like a good idea given the heat, but I still don’t understand the appeal. The flavoring is almost non-existent and the markup on such an item must be huge for anyone who sells it, considering it is just ice and a sugary liquid that is poured over it. A cup of ice from a counter service location on a hot day may yield similar results, but for a kid, they probably would prefer it in this form. I feel like you could do much better for a refreshing treat in this park, namely ice cream dishes of any kind, but if you desire a sno-cone, you can find it here once again.
We tried the mix of three flavors, and it wasn’t unpleasant, but the heat will quickly send all 3 flavors to the bottom in a syrupy, liquid mess. I don’t think this is something I would order again, even on the hottest Summer day here in Orlando. Nearby is Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies with a number of ice cream treats, so I would just walk over there and get something.
