Auntie Gravity's Stellar Smoothies

A good smoothie can be a hard thing to come by, even at a place with such culinary delights as Walt Disney World.

You see, a smoothie of the highest order must be chilly and icy -- yet also creamy and, well, smooth. 

Sometimes Disney tries to pass off icees and slushies as smoothies.  This is no good.

Sometimes you get a smoothie that is too thick, and is more like a milkshake.  Or a smoothie that has too many chunks in it.  It's called a smoothie.  Not a chunkie.

Now there are, in fact, many delicious smoothies around the Disney property.  But there is one place in particular where I have never been dissapointed in a smoothie.  The real fruity flavor and perfectly smooth yet chilly consistency have always been to the highest standard.

This place is in Tomorrowland, and it is called Auntie Gravity's Galactic Goodies.

I have never met Auntie Gravity, but she sure makes an amazing smoothie.  Her small establishment is located right next to (in fact rather inside of) Merchant of Venus.  In addition to smoothies, she provides floats, soft serve, and sundaes to the hungry populace of Tomorrowland.

My favorite has always been the tropical.  A marvellous mix of orange, pineapple, and mango.  It's like Auntie Gravity compressed those fruits with some magic futuristic machine into the most perfect chilly concoction ever.  It's so fresh and refreshing and delicious.  The first sip or two will probably give you brain freeze, but it's so worth it!

The only thing that makes a tropical smoothie more delicious is...

...enjoying said smoothie whilst riding on the TTA.  Yes, I know, you're not supposed to sneak food on...but I have lots of cast member friends who call the TTA the "snack train."  lol.  We're bad.

Sipping a smoothie while whizzing around Tomorrowland is relaxation of the future.  And that forbidden flavor only makes it more delish! ;)


  1. One of our favorite things to do is grab a cream cheese filled pretzel from the Lunching Pad and then sneak them on the Peoplemover. Shh! Don't tell :)

  2. You CMs are rebels, lol! ;)
