Just changed the music played on my blog to music from CarsLand! Listen in to all the songs!
“Guests want options other than water and soft drinks,” says Jeannie Villarreal-Bissell, Disneyland ResortBeverage Manager. “They want something fun and unique – something they may not be able to create themselves – and it needs to be yummy!”
Cue the Disney beverage experts. And Walt Disney Imagineering to come up with clever names.
Cars Land offers six fun, new non-alcoholic sips themed to the hit film, “Cars.” For example, at the Cozy Cone Motel, Cone #1 features “Ramone’s Pear of Dice Soda” made with desert pear and mojito flavorings and Sprite. Remember Ramone in the movie, the lowrider who owns Ramone’s House of Body Art? Also at Cone #1, there’s regular and cinnamon-spiced hot cocoa.
At Cone #2, check out the “route” beer floats. Cone #3 serves “Fillmore’s Fuelin’ Groovy Ades,” an all-natural lemonade with wild berry foam, or pomegranate limeade with lemon-lime foam. Fillmore is the resident hippie bus who owns an organic fuel shop in the movie.
Cone #4 serves Red’s Apple Freeze, made with 100% frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow and passion fruit-mango foam (delicious!). Red is the retro red fire truck in the movie, thus the “toasted marshmallow.”
Cone #5 offers Doc’s Wild Grape Tonic, with Sprite, wild grape syrup and wild berry foam topping. We loved Doc Hudson, the 1951 Hudson Hornet and town doctor in “Cars.”
At Flo’s V8 Café, you can try Mater’s Tulsa Tea, sweet green tea topped with passion fruit mango foam. Or a shake – chocolate, vanilla and or strawberry – topped off with “road gravel” (crunchy candies).
The 16-ounce drinks are $3.29 to $4.29, and available in a souvenir glass for an extra charge. (The Cozy Cone souvenir cups are pretty darn cute – shaped like a traffic cone.)
Which one will you try first?
Wow CarsLand really clears all other Disneyland Resort attractions for everyone else to enjoy!
