We’re back with everyone’s favorite theme park advent calendar: a daily countdown of our favorite drinks at Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, and SeaWorld building anticipation to the Big Day. 

Criteria: Drinks can be alcoholic or nonalcoholic. Drinks can come from any venue on property. Bonus points awarded for atmosphere where the drink is served. Any drink with glow cubes is immediately disqualified. Ready? Let’s go!

DAY NINETEEN: Swedish Fish at Todd English’s bluezoo (Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort)

Swedish Fish at Todd English’ bluezoo

One of our all time favorite drinks at Walt Disney World was the Bazooka Joe at Todd English’s bluezoo. Vodka infused with Bazooka Joe gum and served with a Bazooka Joe comic on top. Th drink was bluezoo in a nutshell: wildly original and tasted incredible. While the Bazooka Joe is currently off the menu, in its place we recommend the Swedish Fish. Similar to the Bazooka Joe, the Swedish Fish takes a treat many of us grew up with, infuses it with vodka, and immediately puts a smile on our face.

Because bluezoo is at the Dolphin, many WDW guests don’t consider it when listing their favorite bars on property, but it is just steps away from the BoardWalk area and Epcot. A bar crawl of bluezoo, Crew’s Cup, Belle Vue LoungeLa Cava del Tequila, Tutto Gusto, a Grand Marnier slush in France and a beer and pretzel in Germany goes toe to toe with any list on property.

Ingredients: Imperia Russian vodka infused with swedish fish. Shaken with fresh lemon juice and rock candy syrup, served up and topped with a swedish fish foam.

  • I totally want to try that bar crawl when I’m there in January but I’ll be solo and I think I’d need a friend to carry me home!
