Found at many of the Walt Disney World lounges and restaurants, the walk the plank is getting a unique spin at Crew’s Cup. Or should we say upgrade!

The final results from our Walk The Plank Recipe

Location

Reminds us of home! Located in the Yacht Club resort, Crew’s Cup Lounge is a longtime DVC Duo favorite. If you can’t find us in the parks, we’re more than likely here. Themed after a traditional New England boathouse, Crew’s Cup is a great place to pull up a bar seat and enjoy a drink or two (it’s vacation after all). The cocktail menu centers around your traditional classics like an old fashioned or martini. Additionally, the lounge has to the standard Disney cocktail menu you’ll find around most of Disney property. After a couple of trips we noticed the Crew’s Cup Walk the Plank recipe was different, so had to try it. For research purposes of course! Let’s just say we’re glad we did. The best way to describe it is a lighter, more refreshing version of a traditional old fashioned. One could say it’s a whiskey variation of a Mai-Tai. Alright, the ice is melting, we’d better get to the shaking!
