We visited The Friar’s Nook at Magic Kingdom to try the Divinely Diabolical Milkshake, a special cookies and cream milkshake inspired by Ursula in “The Little Mermaid.” It’s one of many sweet treats available at Walt Disney World Resort to celebrate the new live-action remake.
Divinely Diabolical Milkshake – $7.99
Cookies ‘n’ cream milkshake with chocolate drizzle, purple whipped cream, topped with white chocolate pearls & a chocolate seashell
There’s not much to this shake. It’s a great cookies and cream milkshake without any cookie pieces in it.
The purple whipped cream tastes like your typical vanilla whipped cream. The pearls add a nice crunch for texture. The seashell on top is made of white chocolate.
The chocolate syrup in the cup is sweet and adds an extra chocolate flavor to the drink.
If you’re a fan of cookies and cream milkshakes, then this is for you.

Live-Action “The Little Mermaid”
Oscar-nominated Rob Marshall, known for his work with “Chicago” and Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns,” directs “The Little Mermaid.” The remake stars Halle Bailey as mermaid princess Ariel, Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric, Daveed Diggs as Sebastian the crab, Awkwafina as diving bird Scuttle, Jacob Tremblay as Flounder, Javier Bardem as King Triton, and Melissa McCarthy as Ursula. Noma Dumezweni portrays the new character, Queen Selina, Eric’s mother.
The full trailer debuted during the Oscars, and a teaser trailer was released in April. Alan Menken, who wrote the score for the original 1989 “The Little Mermaid,” made some lyrical updates for the live-action remake, with help from Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Bailey and Jodi Benson, who voiced the animated Ariel, united at the film’s premiere. This wasn’t the first time that Bailey and Benson had interacted. According to the LA Times, Benson makes an on-land cameo in the film and was on set for the filming of “The Little Mermaid.”
“The Little Mermaid” was released in theaters on May 26, 2023. The film has had a strong opening weekend.
