The Epcot Food and Wine Festival is an event foodie’s can’t miss! Try food and drinks from countries all over the world. Here’s your guide to making the most of your trip.
I received tickets for Epcot in exchange for this post, but all opinions are my own.
Andrew and I both love trying new foods, so we were so excited to go to Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival this year! Epcot is divided into counties from around the world, and each one offers food and drinks during the festival. We got to try dishes from everywhere from China to Germany to Belgium.
If you’re planning to attend, I’ve got a few tips and must-try dishes for you! This is a Disney event you can’t miss!
Tip #1: Before you begin your culinary tour, be sure to pick up a Festival Passport. You can find them at the Festival Center or at various merchandise or marketplaces along the way. You can use this passport to keep track of the dishes you tried and make sure you don’t miss anything!
Tip #2: Go with a buddy! It was so much fun to go with Andrew because we both got a different dish at each booth and shared it with each other. This was you can try more dishes!
Tip #3: If you have a Chase credit or debit card, you can relax in the Chase Lounge located by The American Adventure. We didn’t find this out until afterward, but it would have been so nice to take a break in the air conditioning. It may have been November 1st, but it was still super hot and humid!
Tip #4: Go during a meal time. Andrew and I went at lunch time, and were able to try lots of foods without getting overly stuffed!
My favorite booth by far was China. The picture above is of the Chicken Pot Stickers (left) and Gaoli Beef Slider (right). These dishes were both so good! The slider had a really good sauce.
Of course we had to try some belgian waffles from Belgium! We got the Berry Compote and Whipped Cream (left) and the Warm Chocolate Ganache and Whipped Cream (right).
In Greece we got the Chicken Gyro with Tzatziki Sauce (left) and the Spanakopita (right). Both were delicious, but the Spanakopita is definitely the must-try! The flavor was incredible!
We had been looking forward to Japan the most, and it didn’t disappoint! We tried the Teriyaki Gyoza Bun (left) and the Spicy Hand Roll (right). The Teriyaki Gyoza Bun was one of our top favorite dishes! The hand roll was good too, but for sushi lovers like us it wasn’t anything special.
Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival runs through November 16, 2015. Be sure to plan your visit soon!
