My Final Thoughts and Review

To say that this is a Disney MUST DO, is not emphasizing just how much you HAVE TO experience this event on your solo Disney trip or your trip with family and friends.

I had such a wonderful time learning about the interesting history of how sangria came to be and I especially loved how warm and inviting the Cast Members were.

They patiently helped me come up with unique ways to have my own sangria creation stand out and they were accommodating to parties that had children or were pregnant.

You can be a part of Sangria University even if you don’t want to have alcohol.

You will enjoy the event at lower cost and your base for your sangria will be lemonade instead of wine (be sure to call ahead of time to let them know and see if they can accommodate you like they accommodated me).

Just let the Cast Member know that you want to opt out of the alcoholic version when making your reservation.

Overall, the location overlooking the lagoon did it for me as I sipped my delicious concoction.

It reminded me of why I love discovering fun and unique things for adults to do at Walt Disney World.
