To think, Epcot Center was the park I hated the most as a kid. Things definitely change when you grow up and learn that you can drink around the world without a passport!
I’m thankful to have Disney World just a road trip away from me. Takes about 3 1/2 hours to drive from Miami to Orlando. Since I was 10 years old, I’ve been visiting all four Disney parks numerous times, stayed on Disney property, and have dined at several of Disney restaurants, even Cinderella’s castle! Now I’m an annual pass holder and go practically every other weekend. Because I can!
Aside from The Florida Keys, Orlando is my favorite weekend getaway especially from September to November. During that time, Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival is on and popping! It’s my FAVORITE event of the year. You get to sample food and drinks from not only the countries in the World Showcase but new ones every year.
Here are a few of my favorite Epcot staples and what I tried from this year’s Food & Wine Festival.
// Roasted Pork Lettuce Wrap and Kimchi and Soju Fruit Slushy in South Korea.
// Crispy pork belly with black beans and tomato and Black beer in Brazil.
// Mini prosciutto and caprese sandwiches in Italy.
// Italian Margarita (basically, a limoncella slushy. Seriously my fave ever!) in Italy
// Oktoberfest in Germany, obvs.
// Kielbasa and Potato Pierogi with Caramelized Onions and Sour Cream in Poland.
// Frozen Szarlotka Apple Pie in Poland.
// La Passion Martini Slush in France.
// Liquid Nitro Chocolate Almond Truffle with Warm Whiskey Caramel in Chocolate Studio.
// Canadian cheddar cheese soup served with a pretzel roll in Canada.
// Flan de Chocolate in Mexico (aside from the chips and guac from the bar inside and a guava marg! yum!).
I’ll probably be going again later this month because that’s how much I love Epcot!
