Who out there among us isn’t feeling a little EXTRA-indulgent these days!
In fact, not sure about you guys, be we’ve taken to storing some snacks between our couch cushions so that we don’t have to get up as much (and the kids and pets haven’t caught on to us yet!). WE KID, WE KID!
And when Disney World reopens, why not keep a good thing rollin’? That’s why we want you to know what some of your over-the-top super-indulgent options are!
Spiked Milkshakes at Disney’s Swan and Dolphin Resort
If you didn’t think you could make an already super-indulgent dessert even more extra, then you haven’t met the Spiked Milkshake at Disney’s Swan and Dolphin Resort’s The Fountain! If you’re looking to keep your Boozy Milkshake game on-fleek, The Fountain’s got your back. They feature a fresh Milkshake flavor every month — and you can get them SPIKED!
We kicked off 2020 with The Fountain’s New Year’s Resolution Shake, which was basically a vanilla shake loaded with rainbow sprinkles, topped with whipped cream, MORE sprinkles, and popping candy! Although we opted for it sans vanilla vodka, it was still basically a giant party in an oversized glass!
Most of these Milkshakes cost about $14 with the option to spike ’em for $2 more!
Japanese Wagyu Beef at Morimoto Asia
What could be more decadent than eating at the world-famous Iron Chef’s restaurant, Morimoto Asia, in Disney Springs? How about ordering up one of his signature Japanese delicacies — Wagyu Beef!
This ain’t your Momma’s Salisbury Steak! For one thing, it’s presented to you raw before it’s cooked tableside over a traditional scorching hot Japanese Ishiyaki grilling stone! That’s so you can see all that mouth-watering marbling!
So you can get Wagyu all over Disney World, but what makes this so extra? This particular Wagyu Beef is A5 certified, meaning it’s the highest of the high quality certified beef imported from Japan — you even get a certificate WITH YOUR COW’S NOSE PRINT! It’s basically the cow’s fingerprint. Either way, it’s legit. Almost TOO legit.
Morimoto Asia’s Waygu Beef will set you back $28 PER OUNCE with a 3-ounce minimum requirement! Seriously, you can almost count the dollars spent AS YOU CHEW! Still, it’s more like delicious performance art in our minds!
$100 Punch Bowl at The Edison
Why drink from a glass when you can drink from a WHOLE BOWL? Did you know you can get a variety of cocktails at The Edison in Disney Springs served in a Punch Bowl?!?
$100 is quite the upcharge from the $13-$14 price range these mixed drinks normally cost but talk about an experience! Most drinks we’ve had at Disney aren’t almost big enough to contemplate SWIMMING in! Wouldn’t it be great if more drinks at Disney World came with their own ladle? Just make sure you bring a couple of friends to help you tackle this thing — and divvy up its cost! Split between friends we think this makes for a fun night out and a great photo op!
Seven Seas Lagoon at The Wave Lounge
While we’re on the topic of Disney World’s biggest dranks, how about taking The Wave Lounge‘s Seven Seas Lagoon for a test swim over at Disney’s Contemporary Resort?
The generously proportioned 24-ounce beverage includes Skyy Vodka, Parrot Bay Coconut Rum, lime and pineapple juices, soda water, and agave. There are even some candy fish and gummy life preservers (AND of course a glow cube and popping boba balls, in case you forgot you were at Disney World! 😉 ) thrown in just in case you get in over your head! This one costs around $22!
Takumi-Tei at Epcot’s World Showcase
Just when you thought life couldn’t get any better at Disney World, Epcot revealed a new $$$ restaurant, Takumi-Tei!
Takumi-Tei translates to “House of the Artisan,” and its cuisine and atmosphere are inspired by Japan’s natural beauty. BOY DID THEY NAIL IT! This place is straight-up gorgeous. Get ready to have your horizons (and belt) expanded with a menu of freshly prepared sushi and meat or seafood entrees.
OR select the Omakase option (which is basically you telling the chef “surprise me!”). For $130 bucks plus a $75 optional sake and wine pairing, you’ll get a 7-course prix fixe meal specially selected by the chef.
If you have even deeper pockets and a group of guests, consider popping for the private chef’s table experience in the Water Room. This 9-course experience with optional beverage pairing was absolutely PER-FECT on our visit. Plus the room is a straight-up stunner. This costs $180 dollars per guest for up to eight guests. A 6-course optional sake and wine pairing is available for $100 more per person.
Takumi-Tei is a joy for all the senses — not just your tastebuds! Each dish is plated more beautifully than the last and we think many guests will get a kick out of this experience.
Rent a Yacht at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort
We’ve been talking a lot about food and drink since it’s one of our favorite ways to indulge, but there are other things that don’t involve chewing sipping (we promise they’re still as fun as eating!). How about being a big-shot yachtsman for the day?
That’s right, buccaneers! If you’re ever dreamed of sailing across the Seven Seas Lagoon in your very own private yacht, YOU CAN! This life-changing event won’t come cheap, but it WILL come with its own private Butler if you rent Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa’s Grand One! It’s $400 per hour and you can bring up to 18 guests along (17 if Mr. Belvedere’s onboard!).
So who’s ready to overindulge with us when the parks reopen? Any takers? Heck, we don’t even really need anything fancy right now — just your average Pineapple Dole Whip would suffice! 😉
