Cozy Cone Motel:  Located in Cars Land

Reviewing Disney restaurants that taste great is much more fulfilling and fun then reviewing the restaurants of yester-year that still taste like “amusement park food” of the 80’s and 90’s.  Even though Disney still has some of these restaurants, they seem to be dwindling.  But the Cozy Cone Motel is one of those fun food experiences for the future.  They have soft serve ice cream that keeps you thinking about it throughout your stay, chili in a soft pretzel cone, spicy popcorn, specialty drinks, and churro bites.  They even serve breakfast.

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure DiningThe Cozy Cone Motel has 5 cones you can order from.  At certain times of the day one cone may be busier than the others.  On hot days, you should expect a sizable line for the soft serve Cone #2.  Also, there isn’t much seating but most, if not all, of the food is conducive to walking and eating simultaneously.

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure DiningWe would say that the prices at Cozy Cone Motel are reasonable.  For $5.19 the churro bites go fast but you’re paying for the chocolate sauce, thus the increased price.

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure Dining

Churro Bites – $5.19

Here they are with chocolate sauce and all.  Seems like the container could be filled more with the bites.  If you’re a chocolate lover you should love dipping the bites.  Our only complaint is the bites go fast!

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure Dining

Churro Bites (cinnamon spiced chocolate sauce) – $5.19

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure Dining

Ramone’s “Pear of Dice” Soda – $3.59

This soda was just OK in our book.  We felt it was Mojito syrup overload.

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure DiningAwww….Cozy Cone #2.  Probably our favorite cone of the bunch.

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure DiningExpect to pay close to $5 for a large cone dipped in chocolate–the only way to go!

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure Dining

Soft Serve Twist – $3.49 or $3.99

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure Dining

Soft Serve Dipped in Chocolate – $3.99 or $4.49

Unfortunately, we didn’t tell our server to make us a beautiful cone for the photo shoot.  And, yes, it’s true–I had 2 large vanilla cones dipped in chocolate during our trip.  I’ll shoot for 3 next time.  I’m thinking there has to be MSG in this thing. 🙂

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure DiningChili Cone Queso Cone #3 was the expectation exceed-er for us.

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure DiningThese snacks are light and recommended for a light lunch or dinner.  They serve chili and chicken verde in soft pretzel cones.  The chicken verde sauce is the same that is used in Flo’s V8 Chicken Tamale Breakfast–one of our favorites at Flo’s.

Chili Cone Queso – $6.99

I promise there is chili under those Fritos.  The kids loved these and so did the adults.

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure Dining

Chicken Verde – $6.99

Jenny “from the block” couldn’t decide on which was her favorite.  I give the slight edge to the chicken verde.

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure Dining

Fillmore’s Pomegranate Limeade – $3.79

Jenny loved the tart and sweet pomegranate limeade.

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure DiningCone-Coctions Cone #4.  This cone came in 2nd in least busiest, next to the popcorn cone.

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure Dining

Pretzel Bites – $4.99

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure DiningThese pretzels were cooked perfectly.

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure Dining

Red’s Apple Freeze – $4.29

We did try the Apple Freeze, of which they add marshmallow syrup.  It reminded us of Martinelli’s.

Cozy Cone Motel CA Adventure DiningSorry Popcone #5–we opted not to try the popcorn–tummies too full I guess.  They always have butter popcorn, and they rotate four other flavors:  bacon & cheddar,   dill pickle,   sweet & spicy,   and cheese.

WHAT WORKED:   Soft serve dipped in chocolate,   Chili & chicken verde cone queso,   Specialty drinks,   Pretzel bites,   Reasonable prices

WHAT DIDN’T WORK:   Stingy on the churro bites,   Ramone’s “Pear of Dice” Soda syrup overload

We give Cozy Cone Motel 4 STARS for their selection, creativity, and soft serve.

    We have to always make a pit stop (ha) at the Cozy Cone Motel. The soft serve swirl dipped in chocolate is hands down the best soft serve I have ever had. It is so creamy! I love the churros bits too, but agree there could be more bites. The chocolate dip is really good.

    While we have enjoyed the things we’ve tried at the Cozy Cone, I don’t like having to stand in line 4 different times. If you’ve never been there, each “cone” sells something different. When I’m at DCA with just my 5 year old, we skip it and go elsewhere.
