REVIEW: Moana Milk Shake for Women’s History Month at EPCOT

As part of the celebrations for Women’s History Month (March) at Walt Disney World, Sunshine Seasons at EPCOT is serving a Moana Milk Shake. Sunshine Seasons is a cafeteria-style eatery inside The Land Pavilion in World Nature. Moana Milk Shake – $8.99 Orange Cream Milk Shake with Whipped Cream, Seashells, Pearls, and a Moana Coin Fans of the heroine may want to enjoy their treat at the nearby Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana walkthrough attraction. It makes for a cute photo op. Rating out of 7: 5 This is a standard orange creamsicle shake topped with too much whipped cream. The seashells and Moana coin are plain white chocolate, while the pearls are white chocolate coated crisps. It was sweet and refreshing but kind of heavy for a hot day. Overall, if you’re a creamsicle fan, this will meet your cravings. If you want something lighter, we recommend the Florida Smoothie from The Land Cart just outside the pavilion. It’s pineapple, orange, and mango, so you’ll still get those citrus notes, and it’s one of our favorite items at this year’s EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival.
