After months of closure, a Disneyland Resort location reopened with a bold new menu. Schmoozies!, a smoothie and milkshake quick service counter in Hollywood Land at Disney California Adventure Park, has been “temporarily closed” for months, with opening dates repeatedly pushed back on the Disneyland Resort app.

This week, Disneyland Resort guests were surprised to see the counter open with a fresh menu! TikToker @sometimescastle shared a video of the reopened restaurant:

Though many Disney Parks guests are excited for more alcoholic beverage options, some feel Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort should stay alcohol-free.

“It just seems like there are more and more extreme incidents of Guests acting irrationally in the Park while under the influence of alcohol,” one Disney Parks fan said in June. “I don’t think Disney would ever limit alcohol sales (it’s too profitable to put restrictions on), but I’m genuinely worried for the future of the Park if they can’t get this under control.”

“Disney should limit drinks on property…period,” another agreed.

Even some Disney cast members are tired of guests drinking at the theme parks.

“I’ve worked at all four of them,” one Disney cast member said in April. “If you think people are cranky when they get overheated, wait until they get overheated and drunk.”

“Take a power break with a delicious fresh fruit smoothie that’s sure to be the talk of the town,” Disneyland Resort writes of the walk-up counter. “Rub elbows with today’s up-and-comers in flavors like Mango Madness, Strawberry Banana Sensation and more. Coffees, specialty shakes and juices are also known to mingle at this quick-service venue.”
