What can be more relaxing on a Disney Cruise than sitting by the pool with a delicious cocktail?
If you want to enjoy a cocktail at a very special price then the Drink of the Day on a Disney cruise is a great option.
Every day on a Disney Cruise there will be a different Drink of the Day offered at a special price. There will be an alcoholic and a non-alcoholic option offered.
What are the Disney Cruise Drinks of the Day?
You can discover what the drink of the day is by looking at the Disney Navigator App on board. It will show you what is available.
You can also ask your friendly Beverage Crew what the Drink of the Day is.
You can see here that Sunken Treasure and Parrot Song are offered as Drink of the Day. In keeping with the theme, this is offered on Pirate Night.
There is no way to predict exactly which drink of the day will be on your Disney Cruise, but from experience, I have seen that there are certain ones that seem to be offered more often than others.
Here are some of the ones which seem to appear more often.
- Captain’s Mai Tai
- Espresso Chiller
- High Tide
- Melon Margarita
- Paradise Punch
- Sunken Treasure
- Yellow Bird
- Bahama Mama
- Bay Breeze
Non- Alcoholic Favorites include:
- Parrot Song
- Passion Cream Freeze
- Princess Delight
- Mint Tea Punch
- Lava Smoothie
- Bora Shake
How Much is the Disney Cruise Line Drink of the Day?
The cost of the Drink of the Day on a Disney Cruise in 2023 is $5.25.
An 18% auto gratuity is added to this so the total is $6.20.
Drinks on Disney Cruise Line
Of course, there are many more drinks offered in the Disney Cruise ship bars.
The picture above shows the cocktail menu for the Disney Cruise ships which are available in the adult pool area.
Prices vary from around $9.50 up to around $16 for the Moet Ice. This does come in its own souvenir glass though so, of course, I had to get one!
Other drinks menus including cocktails are available in the bars on each ship.
My favorite is the Gin Tea Tonic. Must be my British roots.
If only I knew where to find a Hendricks teapot like that!
You can also ask for any cocktail in the restaurants, and there are some recommended ones for each dinner menu.
For example, you can see at the top of the menu for the Captain’s Gala that the suggested cocktails for that dinner are:
- Red Carpet
- Star Night

The Disney Wish launched in July 2022 with its own unique bars.
It also has the distinction of having the most expensive Disney Cocktail on board.
If you have $5,00 to spare why not order the Kaiburr Crystal: The galaxy’s rarest and [most] valuable cocktail?
Available in the Disney Wish Hyperspace Lounge Menu this eye wateringly expensive cocktail is more than just a drink – thankfully. You also get
