Extreme Shakes Shake Up the Magic Kingdom

Share This!

The highly Instagrammable extreme shake trend has now hit the Magic Kingdom. Meet the Chocolate Extreme Shake, served at the Plaza Inn restaurant on Main Street U.S.A. Priced at $14.00, the shake is served in a chocolate-chip-rimmed glass, and contains a chocolate milkshake (though you can request other flavors).

But most of the real action is happening on top of the glass. The shake is topped with a glazed donut, a giant Mickey-shaped marshmallow, some chocolate strips, a heap of whipped cream, and, oh yeah, an entire ice cream cone that is filled with the ice cream of your choice and topped with chocolate disks.

This thing is a mess, a delicious, over-the-top, gloppy, sticky, mess. If you order this, you’ll no doubt be sharing it, but be sure you like your tablemates because double dipping your spoon is practically a requirement.

What do you think? Must try or much too much? Let us know in the comments.

    I’ve had those kind of shakes before, but always a group share. It’s fun but not something you want on a regular basis.

    For the price, relative to most sweets available in the parks, I could say that you are getting a deal. While $14 is a pretty crazy price for one shake, it isn’t actually that bad when considering the general price of sweet theme-park faire. However, definitely this shake has a bit more going on then I could even dream of eating – a donut and a marshmallow on top of that huge shake would already be enough to do me in – but a whole additional ice cream cone? On a regular day I barely finish one. Definitely over-the-top but, when looking for a snack to share with family or friends on a hot day in the park, may not be a bad option to split. Just come prepared with a whole lot of napkins.
