The Cozy Cone Motel - Carsland Cone Snacks

 The Cozy Cone Motel in Cars Land is a cute little snack area 
that has many different things to offer all in cones.  
Both savory and sweet, everyone can probably find something here they would want to try.
 These are walk-up kiosks and there is really very little seating behind the motel office.

I love the antennae on the tops of the cones.  So funny!
 This is a cute cone water feature.
 The car light flowers are pretty.
 In the office are some Radiator Springs postcards and few other cute items, 
including this Hidden Buzz Lightyear.
Each cone sells something different.  
At the Pop Cone you can get popcorn in different flavors.  
They rotate them so you can get regular butter and one of the following:
Salt & Vinegar, Pickle, Bacon & Cheddar, Sweet & Spicy, or Nacho Cheese.
On this particular day they were serving Bacon Cheddar and Butter popcorn.  
The specialty drink at this cone is
Doc's Grape Tonic - Sprite with Wild Grape Syrup and Wild Berry Foam.

 You can get your beverages in cone shaped souvenir sippers and your popcorn in a 
Lightening McQueen popcorn holder if you want to pay a little extra.
 Doc's Wild Grape Tonic with flavored foam and the Bacon Cheddar Popcorn.  
Both were very tasty. 
The Cone Queso serves food in bread cones.
 For lunch or dinner they have bread cones filled with chili and cheese, 
or salsa verde chicken and cheese. 
At this cone you can get Fillmore's Fuelin Groovey Ades -
Lemonade with Wildberry Foam
or Pomegranate Limeade with Lemon-Lime Foam
You can also spike it with vodka if you want.  
It's DCA, and like Epcot, they serve alcohol.
 At this particular cone they also serve breakfast bread cones filled with two different 
types of eggs conecoctions. They looked pretty tasty!
 This is Fillmore's Fuelin Limeade, no vodka. 
It was quite tasty, but the day was very, very hot (4th of July), and there was no shade, 
so really sweet drinks when it is very hot tend to make me start feeling a little sick.  
I need to try many of these things when it's not so hot.
 Of course, how could you not sell ice cream cones?  And root beer floats, hello!

Conecoctions was just pretzels and Red's Apple Freeze when it first opened.
I have been told this is the same as Lefou's Brew from Gaston's
in the WDW Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland.
Red's Apple Freeze - Frozen Apple Juice with Toasted Marshmallow Syrup, 
and Passion Fruit-Mango Foam
It has an apple taste to the freeze at first, and the foam has a very tart, very fruity, taste.
Once you start drinking it,  the marshmallow flavor becomes apparent.
Pretzel Bites with cheesy dipping sauce
Update:  Twists have since been added to the Conecoctions Cone since it opened.  
Cheddar Garlic and Chocolate

I somehow missed getting a picture of the Churro Cone, so I used this one from my friend. 
 Churro Cone serves churro bites and
Ramone's "Pear of Dice" Soda - Dessert Pear Syrup, Mojito Syrup, and Sprite
I tried the churro bites at the end of a long, very hot day.  
Being a churro fan, I thought this would be a no brainer hit with me, 
especially with the chocolate sauce.  
Unfortunately, and again, this could be the heat of the day, 
I found them way, way too sweet and the chocolate sauce just put them over the top. 
Without a doubt, I need to take a nice cool day sometime soon 
and head back to the Cozy Cone to give a lot of these a try.

 One thing you definitely want to be prepared for is when they turn all the lights on at dusk.  
Like the rest of Radiator Springs, when the lights turn on, it is magical!

 Throughout the day, the front of the Cozy Cone is the photo spot for Mater, Lightening and Red.
Aren't they even cuter when they light up?

Next time you're in Radiator Springs, 
stop in at the Cozy Cone and try some food in a cone.

Gorgeous photos and lots of info that I didn't know. I will be trying alot of those when I go. I love all the photos of the details. I am wondering how to scrap all these cozy cone photos. I plan to take photos of all of the cones by the pool at Art of Animation and that orange is bold. Oh and all of the WDW parks sell alcohol.
