Kungaloosh, Hoopla, Funmeister, and other Pleasure Island drinks return to Disney Springs

Few things Disney World have had the continued cult-like following of the Adventurer’s Club. With its numerous inside jokes and varied drink menu, this comedy club at Pleasure Island was a favorite spot for many locals.

One of the main draws, well beyond the nightly show, was the famed Kungaloosh drink (it also was the club’s official greeting). Since Pleasure Island’s closure in 2008 fans have craved another Kungaloosh.

Over the year’s Disney has offered various items sporting the Kungaloosh name, including a cake at Magic Kingdom’s Skipper Canteen, and for a while, the drink was still available on the island formerly known as Pleasure Island at the Laffer's Cantina. Now it looks like the popular drink, and many other Pleasure Island favorites, are back, at least for the summer.

The 1960’s Florida fruit stand themed Dockside Margaritas in the Disney Springs Marketplace is running a summer special according to WDW News Today. Every Thursday between June 29 and Sept. 28 the margarita stand will offer various Pleasure Island cocktails for $9.

The Pleasure Punch and Funmeister that was the island-wide drink of choice will be offered as well as various drinks from the clubs. 8-Trax will be relived through the Bell Bottom, the Techn-O, and the Thriller drinks. Comedy Warehouse’s Punch Line is one the menu as is the Shark Bite from the Rock ‘n Roll Beach Club. The Adventurer's Club is represented not only by the Kungaloosh but also by Emil’s Strawberry Colada, a special non-alcoholic drink that will be offered for $5 on Thursdays. Neon Armadillo’s Armadillo Punch is there, and the super strong Hoopla from Mannequins finishes out the list. WDWNT notes that some of the drinks may rotate on and off the menu, but the Kungaloosh should remain until September 28. Many of the drinks will be offered throughout the week, but the special pricing is only available on Thursdays.

No word on if the drinks will be offered beyond Sept. 28, or if they will be offered anywhere else at Walt Disney World.
