I’ve always had an interest in world cultures. I got my degree in International Business and French so I have a natural curiosity about how people in other countries live. Maybe that’s one of the reasons Epcot is my very favorite of all the Disney parks. The park is divided in a front and back half, more like a figure eight, with Future World in the front and the World Showcase in the back, made up of 11 different countries. Walking through the World Showcase is like taking a whirlwind trip around the world, learning about the culture, meeting the people (all the Cast Members in the World Showcase countries are native to that country), and most importantly eating the food!! With all the options (there are tons) I thought I’d share my ideal 3 course meal in Epcot.
Appetizer – Mexico
The Sopa Azteca at the San Angel Inn: this tortilla soup is served in a carafe along with a bowl full of avocado, cheese and tortilla strips. When you pour the piping hot soup over the ingredients they melt together into an unbelievably delicious sopa!
Main Entrée – Germany
The buffet dinner at the Biergarten Restaurant is one time when I wish I could put away a few platefuls of food in one sitting. The schnitzel, mac and cheese, brats, German potato salad, sauerkraut, soft pretzels – there’s not a bad choice on this buffet!
Dessert – France
It’s not on the main walking path, which is probably why we missed going here until our most recent trip, but Les Halles Boulangerie & Patisserie is a hidden gem in the back of the France pavilion. The crème brûlée is the perfect way to end the evening. My husband and I made the mistake of thinking we’d share one – which ended with both of us stuffing our faces so we didn’t miss any. How very French and sophisticated!
After dinner drink – Canada
If you’re going to dine at the expensive Canadian restaurant Le Cellier, you might as well go all out! We ordered ice wine to finish off our fantastic steak dinners and it hit the spot!
This is just the tip of the iceberg – I can’t wait to discuss in more detail all the other delicious dining options in Epcot!
