Kill, Refurb, Marry: Animal Kingdom Drinks
|April 9, 2014||Posted by Running at Disney under Kill, Refurb, Marry, Walt Disney World|
It’s time for another Kill, Refurb, Marry! This months topic is a bit strange (sorry Estelle!) because it’s very specific. It’s also something I’ve never thought much about…Animal Kingdom Drinks. Now maybe a Grey Goose Slushe from France or even a Sidecar from the Carthay Circle Lounge from time to time, but never anything specific at Animal Kingdom.
So I decided to get a little creative here and not only look at drinks at Animal Kingdom, but also the locations that those drinks can be found…let the safari begin!
Kill Create – Dockside Drinks?
There isn’t a drink that I can think of that should be removed completely, but there is definitely something that is needed. The area between Africa and Asia is a no man’s land. There is nothing to see or do, so why not have somewhere to stop an rest your weary legs?? How about transforming the old boat launch that is now used as a character meet and greet area into an awesome waterfront bar!?!?!
Right?!? This is the perfect spot! And really…look at the view!
This is a big WIN all around and I think we should start a petition to have construction begin immediately.
Refurb – Yak & Yeti
I LOVE the theming and details in Yak & Yeti, but the bar leaves something to be desired. Well and so do the drinks…especially the shaved ice martinis. I love the concept of this, but the flavors are horribly sugary and really, who wants a watered down martini???
So I’m proposing some comfy bar stools and a revamped drink menu…maybe something with an Asian twist!
Marry – Dawa Bar
I really do love Dawa Bar! Well I love it when the temperature is moderate…not sure I would hang out here in July. But it’s still a great place to relax and have a nice cold beverage. It also allows for some great people watching in Harambe and if you’re lucky you will be able to catch one of the live performances right outside in the square.
My favorite drink to get there is the Classic Mojito. They put tons of mint in it and event a giant sugar cane! So so so refreshing!!
So those are my choices…what about you? What Animal Kingdom Drinks would you Kill, Refurb & Marry??
What do you think of my waterfront bar concept??
