Secrets Revealed: Disneyland Mint Julep Recipe!

The Mint Julep is the Kardashian of Disneyland drinks. By that, I mean to say it is that super-famous thing you either love or hate. 

There is just no in-between.

It has huge crowds of dedicated fans queueing up for it. And has around the same number of people sneering at it and calling it ‘not real’. 

Quite an eventful life for a non-alcoholic drink, wouldn’t you say?

But all the drama aside, it is a very refreshing drink that is perfect for hot summer days. And YOU should know how to make it!

NEWSFLASH: There are More Reasons to Visit Norway Pavilion at Epcot than Frozen

Ready to journey to the Norway Pavilion at Epcot?

Well ThemeParkHipster, we already know that “traveling” and “2021” don’t really mix…right?  But in our opinion, that’s just all the more reason to visit Epcot, Disney’s theme park for adults ASAP.

And today specifically, we’re going to zoom in on the last country to ever open in the World Showcase, nestled right in between Mexico and China…you guessed it! Today is all about: the Norway Pavilion at Epcot!

Italy Pavilion Square in Epcot

Beauty of the Italy Pavilion at Epcot (Secrets and History Revealed)

Without a doubt one of the most visited pavilions in Epcot’s World Showcase is the beloved Italy Pavilion. This destination is so popular in the real world that it was named Travel+ Leisure’s 2021 Destination of the year.

Even I have made the journey across the sea to experience the beauty that is Italy. A true inspiration to the pavilion at Epcot.

But what is it about this pavilion specifically that makes it among the most popular of the World Showcase pavilions?

Is it the dining or the shopping? Or maybe it’s the excellent recreations of icons in the pavilion such as the Venetian waterways and bell tower?
