REVIEW: Alcoholic Hot Chocolate and Hot Spiced Wine Are Worth a Special Trip to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort
Certainly, there are a lot of hot alcoholic drinks at Walt Disney World at this time of year, and certainly a number of those are made with hot cocoa. With that being said, I believe we have found the very best…
Near the monorail station on the second floor of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa’s lobby, you’ll find this small kiosk that is only open in the evening. The kiosk has a limited menu, but one you’ll want to take a peek at…
Not only is there a Toasted Marshmallow-flavor Hot Chocolate, but they also make it with Vanilla Vodka. If wine is more your style, then you’ll want to try the Warm Holiday Spiced Wine.
Toasted Marshmallow Hot Chocolate with Vanilla Vodka ($9.00)
I am not joking when I say this is the best hot chocolate I have ever had in my entire life. The blend of the vodka with the flavored hot chocolate is magical, mixed with the added presence of a large marshmallow (not Mini Marshmallows as advertised), whipped cream and sprinkles. This offering puts the alcoholic hot cocoa flight at Hollywood Studios to shame. It was so good that I drank it a little too fast and I can feel the burn damage to my tongue as I sit down to write this 10 hours later.
Warm Holiday Spiced Wine ($9.00)
I am not usually a warm wine drinker, but this was pretty enjoyable. The person I was with went as far as to claim it as the best warm wine they had ever had. A lot of hot spiced wine is a little sharp on your throat, but this was really well balanced and smooth, but still with a robust flavor.
So, for cold weather and warm hearts at Walt Disney World this holiday season, you’ll want to stop by Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. While you’re there, be sure to check out the famous decorations and take in a holiday set from the magnificent Grand Floridian Society Orchestra. Cheers!
