Are you tired of Frozen (aka Anna and the Snow Queen in Japan) yet? Here at Tokyo Disney Resort, we are only getting started! Here is our review of the “Special Non-Alcoholic Cocktail Inspired by Disney Frozen” or as we call it the Olaf Cocktail. Available for a limited time at the Dreamers Lounge in the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel.
What Is Inside
Inside this delicious non-alcoholic cocktail you can find fresh pineapple, passion fruit, coconut syrup, non-dairy creamer and whipped cream.
The Dreamers Lounge has made some inventive drinks over time, but they really outdid themselves with this one. The attention to detail is rather over the top. The whipped cream is his head and out the top you see three chocolate “sticks” to represent his hair. His arms are two black straws. Instead of a carrot for his nose, because that would make for a weird combination of flavours, they use a piece of mango. To top it all off inside the glass are three “buttons”, made of chocolate syrup.
How is it?
This is clearly a summer beverage. The fresh pineapple gives is that fresh taste, especially after being out in the parks in 40C+ weather all day. Despite using three different syrups, the drink is not overly sweet nor do the flavours clash with each other. It is a nice contrast.
The whipped cream, chocolate stick hair, and pineapple nose do not add anything spectacular to the flavour of the overall beverage. They are clearly for show, but they are nice details.
Should You Get It?
Priced at ¥1,550 (about $16) is an incredibly steep price for a non-alcoholic cocktail. But considering it is at the Dreamers Lounge in the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel, it is not overpriced compared to some other drinks on the menu. While the flavour is nothing out of this world, it is still rather refreshing. Also, it is incredibly photogenic, that will surely get you plenty of “likes” on Instagram.
If you can justify the price, want to increase your “likes” on Instagram, and are a fan of Frozen, then this dessert is well worth the steep price tag.
