Favorite Things

One of Kelvin's favorite things when it comes to the foodie world is the All-American milkshake. At Walt Disney World, the milkshake tends to be among the less popular Disney snack items. I've had very few milkshakes while dining around the world (one of the best is at 50's Prime Time Cafe), though the strongest memory I have was the milkshake at the Whispering Canyon Cafe at the Wilderness Lodge.

Whispering Canyon

One of my friends' traditions was an end of the summer feast at the Whispering Canyon. Last year, in the days leading up to the feast, all my friends Caitlin and Alex could talk about were the milkshakes. Once ordered, they will refill them over and over as many times as you want, and the best part is you could change flavors with each refill. When the day arrived at last and we were seated for our feast, Caitlin and Alex were distressed. The milkshakes were not on the menu for some reason. I can't remember why, but luckily, they were still able to order it! Alex's favorite is the caramel and orange milkshake because the flavor combination is 'beyond the standard.' Caitlin just feels that all milkshakes are 'AMAZING.' Besides being bottomless, the coolest part about these milkshakes is that they come in Mason jars, very thematic to the wilderness atmosphere of the restaurant and resort.

Even though I don't really like milkshakes, I can see why Kelvin and other friends enjoy them so much. The simplicity of its recipe and comfort of its flavors make them an understandable favorite among foodies. Seeing my friends graciously allow our server to continually refill their mason jars helps reinforce that even the littlest things are a part of the happiest place on earth.
