Cinco de Mayo is in a few days, so what better time than now to talk about some of my favorite places at Disney World to enjoy a margarita!
While most people think of Disney as a place for kids, it’s definitely a place for both young and old. And there is no better way to enjoy a warm day in the parks than with a delicious margarita!
Margaritas are one of my favorite drinks and as luck would have it National Margarita day falls in February right when I’m normally at Disney World for the Princess Half Marathon weekend. So I’ve definitely enjoyed quite a few margaritas at Disney. Here are some of my favorite places to get a Margarita both in and out of the parks.
When visiting Disney Springs, head over to Dockside Margaritas! It’s located on the water in the Marketplace section. They havea variety of margaritas available including my favorite the Sunset Margarita which is made with orange juice, it’s very refreshing on a warm day. There is a beautiful outdoor seating area and during certain times of the day they have live music.
Looking to have a margarita at dinner outside the parks, head over to Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. This Mexican style resort is the great place to have a margarita. Good dinner choices are the Maya Grill, Toledo and the three Bridges Bar & Grill.
If you’re wanting to have a drink before your dinner reservation, the outdoor Laguna Bar is a great place to enjoy a margarita before dinner.
If you happen to be staying at the resort and are spending time by the pool, grab a frozen margarita at the pool bar, Siestas Cantina. There’s nothing more refreshing when laying in the sun than a frozen beverage.
One of the greatest places to enjoy a tropical cocktail in Disney World is located at the Polynesian Resort, Trader Sams!
The main bar, Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto is a beautiful tiki bar that is wildly popular. It can fill up really quick and often the wait to get in can be an hour or more.
If you can’t get in there, another option is the outdoor tiki bar, Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace. This is first come first serve tables but there is also a walk up bar and space to stand and enjoy a drink.
They have multiple tropical drink options including the Rosita’s Margarita! Definitely a great place to enjoy the warm Florida sunshine while sipping on a delicious margarita.
Heading into the parks? There are plenty of options to grab a margarita in between rides! At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, head over to the Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge and grab a Margarita Flight. This includes a Classic, Mango and Pomegranate margarita. They are all delicious. This February on National Margarita Day I celebrated by having one of these flights and it was delicious! Since then, this has been taken off the menu online, but hopefully that is temporary and they will put it back on the menu because every margarita lover needs to try this flight!
The best place in Disney to grab a margarita is definitely Epcot! I mean you can go to Mexico and get a margarita when in Epcot.
But have you ever ventured over to Italy to have a margarita? The Italian Margarita is my favorite! It’s made frozen with a blend of tequila and limoncello and it just hits the spot on a warm day!
This delicious margarita is available during both the International Flower and Garden Festival and the International Food and Wine Festival. Covid-19 prevented me from going to the Flower and Garden Festival this year, so I reahopelly that the parks open up by the fall for the Food and Wine Festival so I can enjoy my favorite margarita. I’ve pretty much been dreaming of it this entire time I’ve been staying at home!
As great as the Italian Margarita is, the place to go in Epcot for a Margarita is definitely Mexico, there are so many options of places to get Margaritas there and so many different flavors to enjoy!
Grab dinner and a margarita at San Angel Inn Restaurante or Le Cantina de San Angel. Want to have dinner and a margarita while enjoying the nightly fireworks show? Book a late dinner at La Hacienda de San Angel and ask for a table near the windows. When the fireworks start, they lower the lights and play the music to the fireworks show in the restaurant, it’s a great place to check out the show.
Looking to try out the different margarita flavors, head over to La Cava del Tequila. They have some great flavors such as Jalapeno, Avocado, Passion Fruit, Cucumber and Minty Pineapple.
Choza de Margarita is a great place to grab a margarita to go. They have both on the rocks and frozen margaritas available.
My favorite frozen margarita is the Fiesta Margarita. It’s a combination of Strawberry, classic and mango margaritas and it’s delicious!
Grab a margarita with friends and walk around the world showcase!
Looking for some entertainment while drinking your margarita? Throughout the day, there is live Mexican music outside the gift shop and it’s a great place to close your eyes and feel like you are right in Mexico.
And of course my favorite thing to do while in Mexico is to get a photo with Mexican Donald Duck, definitely don’t pass this up 🙂
Maybe next year some of you can celebrate Cinco de Mayo or National Margarita Day in Disney World and now you know the many locations you can find a great margarita! Do you have other places to add to the list?
