One of the perks to being a grown-up at Disney World is the chance to have some of the many alcoholic beverages Disney World has to offer.
On a recent trip with several adult family members, I was able to enjoy a few of these beverages (and with the help of said family members; I didn't drink all of these on my own!) This particular trip took place while the Food & Wine Festival was going on at Epcot, so we were able to try some of the drinks from "around the World"!
First up is the Kir from France, which is a sparkling white wine with pomegranate liqueur. It was crisp and refreshing, and a hit with many members of our party.

Another drink sampled while at Hollywood Studios was the Magical Star Cocktail. This is actually one of Disney World's signature cocktails and is available at most table-service restaurants, and I had mine at Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater. The Magical Star Cocktail is also a rum-based beverage, with pineapple juice and passion fruit liqueur… but what's fun about this one is that it includes a souvenir glow cube that changes color!

Outside of the parks, many of the Disney Resorts have at least one table-service (sit-down) restaurant. One of these at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is Boma, a favorite dining place of my family's. It was there that I tried the South African Wine Flights. Featured Raats Unwooded Chenin Blanc, Beyond Sauvignon Blanc, and the Ken Forrester Petit Chenin Blanc. You may have noticed that crisp, fruity, white wines are a favorite of mine, and these did not disappoint!

Another beverage from a Disney Resort restaurant is the Lapu Lapu. This one can be found at the Disney's Polynesian Resort. This is another rum-based beverage but what makes it super fun is that the Lapu Lapu is served in a hollowed-out pineapple!
