Drinking Around the World at Epcot

Eating and Drinking Around the World at Epcot

I wanted to spend my birthday eating and drinking around the world at Epcot, but COVID had other plans!

This is my first attempt at eating and drinking around the world at Epcot – AND I FAILED. Or rather, COVID symptoms hit me hard around noon. I was nauseous for a little bit and just tried to keep out of the sun. I just kept drinking water to stay hydrated and moving.

Eating and Drinking Around the World at Epcot

Epcot, located at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, is known for its World Showcase, which offers visitors the opportunity to experience the culture, cuisine, and architecture of different countries from around the world.

Here’s My Attempt at Eating and Drinking Around the World at Epcot

And yes, we started at Canada. You fools who start in Mexico are crazy, haha.

Conclude your culinary adventure in Canada at Le Cellier Steakhouse, a popular table-service restaurant known for its delicious steaks and Canadian specialties. Reservations are highly recommended for this dining experience.



Drinks at the Rose and Crown

Champagne and Scotch Egg

Champagne at Rose and Crown

Champagne Happy birthday to me!

United Kingdom

Rose & Crown Dining Room is a table-service restaurant located in the United Kingdom pavilion, serving British pub fare like fish and chips, bangers and mash, and shepherd’s pie. Pair your meal with a pint of beer or cider!

We ordered the scotch egg to share. I got my first glass of champagne – happy birthday to me – and Zack ordered a beer.

We walked through the gardens for a little bit, then checked out the Disney App and it showed that the wait times for Ratatouille were only 30 minutes. The ride was shut down for some time in the morning, so we didn’t make it a priority to get to France quickly. But once we saw that it was back up and running, we walked as quick as we could to get in line!



Crepe and Champagne

Gusteau

France

Les Chefs de France is a must-visit table-service restaurant in the France pavilion, offering classic French dishes like escargots, coq au vin, and crème brûlée. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, head to the artisanal bakery Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie for delicious pastries and desserts.

The wait for Ratatouille was around 40 minutes for us. When we got in line, the line behind us started growing pretty quickly, so small win for us! After the ride, I ordered a standard crepe with butter and sugar from La Crêperie de Paris. I paired it with a glass of champagne. I don’t think Zack ordered anything to drink or, at least, I didn’t take a photo of it.

France Pavilion

After we ate in Morocco, I circled back to France and ordered the La Vie en Rose frozen slushy from Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie.

Morocco

Spice Road Table is a popular table-service restaurant in the Morocco pavilion. Enjoy Mediterranean-inspired dishes like hummus, falafel, and kebabs while taking in the stunning views of the World Showcase Lagoon.

I ordered this delicious Pomegranate Mimosa from Tangierine Café and the Mediterranean Flatbread with za’atar, artichokes, olives, mozzarella, and feta cheese. The flatbread was featured during the 2022 Flower and Garden Festival – definitely one of the favorite things I ate that day!



Dante from Coco

Japan

Visit the Japan pavilion and indulge in sushi, tempura, and other Japanese delights at the table-service restaurant called Teppan Edo. For a quick bite, try the Katsura Grill, which offers sushi, udon noodles, and teriyaki dishes.

I didn’t eat or drink anything in Japan. At this point in the day I was getting hit pretty hard with COVID symptoms. Here’s a picture of the Dante statue – which wasn’t even anywhere close to Japan, haha.



United States – eating and drinking around the world at Epcot

If you’re looking for American comfort food, head to The American Adventure pavilion and dine at the Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue. This quick-service restaurant offers BBQ classics such as ribs, smoked chicken, and pulled pork.

I was so hot – and sweating profusely – that we went inside the Regal Eagle restaurant just so I could catch some cool air. My stomach was turning and I couldn’t cool down. We probably stopped for about an hour until I felt like I was ready to go back outside. Zack got me cold water bottles to put on my back and neck.



gelato

limoncello

Italy

Tutto Italia Ristorante is a popular table-service restaurant in the Italy pavilion, serving authentic Italian dishes like pasta, risotto, and seafood. Adjacent to Tutto Italia is Via Napoli, a pizzeria known for its wood-fired pizzas. Grab a slice or share a whole pizza with your group.

Zack found a little stand, Gelateria Toscana, that was serving Italian Margarita and Stracciatella gelato. I also found a shaded spot to keep out of the sun while he was waiting in line. I had a little bit of the gelato, but wasn’t feeling like drinking or eating anything still.



The Lion King

Germany

Visit the Biergarten Restaurant in the Germany pavilion for an immersive dining experience. This buffet-style restaurant offers a wide selection of German dishes such as bratwurst, sauerkraut, pretzels, and schnitzel. Don’t forget to try some German beer!

Because I still wasn’t feeling up for more food, we walked through the shops to keep us out of the sun. Here’s a picture of the Lion King, which was on the other side of the park, haha.



China

At the China pavilion, you can enjoy a variety of Chinese cuisine at the Nine Dragons Restaurant, a table-service restaurant that offers dishes ranging from Kung Pao chicken to Mongolian beef. For a quick snack, stop by the Lotus Blossom Café for egg rolls, pot stickers, or orange chicken.

Still keeping my sickness at bay, we didn’t eat anything in China. We roamed through the shops, saw Mulan, and kept on moving.



Norway Pavilion

Norway

Head to the Norway pavilion and dine at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, a table-service restaurant offering a character dining experience with Norwegian-inspired cuisine. Try dishes like salmon, meatballs, and traditional desserts like krumkake.

I really wanted to try some sweets from the Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe, but decided it was best to still hold off until we get to our reservations.

Margarita at Hacienda De San Angel 2022-05-18 14.55.24

Margarita at La Cava del Tequila

Mexico

We made a reservation for the Hacienda De San Angel restaurant because it’s my birthday, but we didn’t think the food options were anything special versus what we saw people eating from the quick-service restaurants. We split a tlayuda and had margaritas.

I rebounded somehow and ended up having three margaritas? Haha, two were from within the pyramid at La Cava del Tequila (one of those might be Zack’s, so I might’ve grabbed a photo).

I FAILED at Eating and Drinking Around the World at Epcot

Overall, we missed five countries. FIVE! I have to do this again AND actually complete it!
