    Options for keeping drinks iced cold? I know there’s no freezer compartment in the fridge but is there a way to change the temp of the fridge so it’s as cold as possible? I like freezing drinks rather than using ice to avoid watered down from the ice.

    Hey there, Kaden thanks for swinging by planDisney. A nice cold drink is important when you are visiting the parks and inside your room. I can help explain how I make sure the drinks stay ice cold while I visit. 

    Disney Resorts Collections Hotels are the places to be when you want to stay inside the magic. My family is from New Jersey and we usually drive down to Florida once a year to do just that. I usually drive down with a cooler so I use this method to keep my drinks ice cold. While this does not freeze the drinks it keeps them on ice and you can transfer them to your hydro flask. We have a couple that keeps liquids cold near 24 hours. When we fly in we bring a collapsible cooler to make sure we have cold drinks to start all of our park days. You can keep this in your room and refill it during your stay. Unfortunately, the temperature cannot be changed on these units and will not freeze drinks. Each resort will have an ice machine to keep your drinks cold if you use one of these options.

    Cold drinks on vacation are a must and there are a couple of my favorites I would love to mention. In the morning at Magic Kingdom Park if you head to Fantasyland to grab a warm cinnamon roll and the frozen non-alcoholic beverage LeFou's Brew. Just a monorail ride away if you are in the mood for an adult beverage is Pineapple Lanai. You can enjoy the best of both worlds, the DOLE Whip with rum floater is a great way to take a mid-day break to get off your feet at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort

    I hope this information helps you plan your stay and how to keep your drinks as cold as possible. If you have any further questions please drop us another line at

    Have a magical day,
