The Purple Wall in Walt Disney World can be found at the entrance of Tomorrow Land from Main Street USA.

The Purple Wall Slush
In May 2018, The Purple Wall got its own signature slushy drink. It was released at the same as the revamped Purple Wall.
The Purple Wall Slush is taro tea with tapioca boba which makes the bright shade of purple colour. It comes topped with whipped cream and purple sprinkles.
Fans came in their droves to try out the new slushy drink at Walt Disney World. Of course, they had to pose with one against the newly revealed Purple Wall!
You can purchase this as a snack on your Disney Dining Plan for $5. When I visited during the Holiday Season, I was really disappointed to find out that this slush was not being sold anymore.
But, it may come back for the summer season, so keep a look out on Disney websites. Apparently, there was also a limited edition “Meet Me At The Purple Wall” baseball cap released and now Purple Wall Cotton Candy too!
