Eating Around Disney World: Hollywood Studios/Disney Springs/Epcot

It is time to kick off a breakdown of the second day of my last Disney World vacation, so let’s talk about everything I ate and drank. This was quite a full Disney day, the morning started at Hollywood Studios with a 9:30 AM reservation at Oga’s Cantina. Honestly, it tends to be a difficult reservation to get, so you have to take whatever is available. Luckily, we had also snagged a pretty early Rise of the Resistance boarding group, so I was happy to be able to squeeze that in after Oga’s.

Then it was off to Disney Springs around noon to meet up with Touring Plans, we were on a mission to find the Halloween Treats in Disney Springs, and boy did we, more on that in a later post. We grabbed a quick lunch at Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, it’s right on the water and it is a great place to enjoy the sights while grabbing a drink and a meal.

After spending some time in Springs, it was off to Epcot, this was my first look at Food and Wine in 2021. I didn’t eat much, but I did make my way around World Showcase and scout out what was on the list for later in the week! Overall, it was a great day of eating around Disney World, now let’s break it down!

Before we start talking about food, let’s break down some of the trip details:

Dates: September 6-10, 2021

Resort: Animal Kingdom Lodge – Jambo House

Jump to:

Day One – Animal Kingdom

Day Three – Hollywood Studios (coming soon)

Day Four – Epcot (coming soon)

After Hours – Boo Bash (coming soon)

Disney Springs Halloween Treats (coming soon)

Resort Dining (coming soon)

Breakfast – Hollywood Studios

Bloody Rancor

A liquid breakfast counts as breakfast, right? Look, when you get a reservation to Oga’s you take it no matter the time of day. Which is exactly why I was drinking at 9 am in Batuu, plus its vacation so don’t judge me. I did score this reservation using Touring Plans Reservation Finder, so if you are trying to snag Oga’s, give it a go.

So, the Bloody Rancor isn’t on the menu anymore, it has become a hidden menu item that Millennials on Main Street gave me the 411 about. Honestly, I am not the world’s biggest Bloody Mary fan, but this one was good. The highlight for me was the meringue bone that comes on the top.

Location: Oga’s Cantina

Price: $18.00

Rating: 7.5/10

Would I Order it Again: Yes, if I were hungover.

Batuu Bits

Look if you are rushing to get to your reservation, haven’t eaten anything yet, and are prepared to down 2 cocktails in under 45 minutes, this Batuu Bits is fine.

Honestly, nothing about it is good, and I don’t understand why they can’t do something a little bit better at Oga’s. I said what I said. I also refuse to pay $21 for the underwhelming looking Charcuterie Board, go to Baseline Tap House after and order their $10, it is outstanding.

Location: Oga’s Cantina

Price: $11.00

Rating: 1/10

Would I Order it Again: Absolutely not.

Lunch – Disney Springs

After spending the morning on Batuu, it was off to Disney Springs to meet up with my friends from Touring Plans. We were on a mission to try all the fun Halloween treats in Disney Springs, and we did, more on that in a later post. But my other goal was to stop by Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar to try the loaded pretzel, I have heard the hype and I just needed to order this one!

Air Pirate’s Cargo Loaded Pretzel 

Honestly, this pretzel is a masterpiece, it is like a combination of a pretzel and a charcuterie board and I am LIVING for it. Jock Lindsey’s is a fun time to begin with, if you love Indy, you have to visit. They always are adding something unique and fun to the menu, for example, Bacon of Doom, which was chocolate-covered bacon that came with a smoke show.

But back to the pretzel, I loved every aspect of this one, the pretzel was fabulous, I couldn’t decide what I enjoyed more, the beer cheese or the spicy mustard, both were outstanding. But seriously, there is so much to eat on this plate that it is easily a full meal.

Description: Prosciutto, Sliced Brats, Artisan Pepperoni, Smoked Cheddar, Black Diamond Cheddar, Caraway Pickles, Spicy Mustard, and Beer Cheese Fondue.

Location: Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar

Price: $22.00

Rating: 10/10, dare I call this the best pretzel at Disney World?

Would I Order it Again: Yes, all day every day.

Afternoon Snack – Epcot

Park hopping was in the cards this day, there was a lot to do and see. We had evening reservations at Citricos, more on that later, but spoiler alert it was phenomenal. After dropping off the Halloween goodies, we took the bus over to Epcot to get a first look at Food and Wine. Am I late on the trend, yes, but it is what it is?

Char Siu Pork Udon

Upon arriving at Epcot a good ole afternoon Florida rainstorm came through, so we took shelter by the main entrance and waited for it to stop raining. The downfall of that, the humidity because like 1000% percent and it feels so hot. So what better place to stop first than the brand new, The Noodle Exchange. This one is a take on Far East noodles, so we are talking hot soup, but boy this booth was about to impress me this whole trip.

I had heard amazing things about the Char Siu Pork Udon and I knew I had to order it, despite the full-body sweating. Someone said that two hot things cancel each other out, and while I don’t think that is true, I went with it.

My first thought is, is this traditional Udon? No. Despite it feeling like 100 degrees out is this delicious and did I want to eat the whole thing? Without a doubt. The pork was actual perfection, I have no other way to describe it. The flavor was phenomenal, and it was tender and delicious. I would order this one every single time… if I didn’t want to try other things on the menu.

Description: with Enoki Mushrooms, Bok Choy, and Soy Pickled Egg

Location: The Noodle Exchange at Food and Wine

Price: $5.50

Rating: 9/10

Would I Order it Again: Yes.

A Day of Eating

This about wraps up my second full day of eating in Disney, after that we hopped on the monorail over to Grand Floridian for my first look at the new and revamped Citricos. I know my review isn’t up yet, but if you are about to make dining reservations, book it now! You’ll see why I loved it so much later, no one aspect of that restaurant disappoints.

Be sure to come back for the next part of my series, because we are headed back to Hollywood Studios to eat. Trust me when I say Hollywood Studios has the best Halloween snacks of any Disney Park!

Eating Around Disney World: Animal Kingdom

There is always so much food to choose from at Disney World, and narrowing down the choices and figuring out what you might want can be difficult. I am kicking off a brand new series where I break down everything I ate during my Disney World trip, it’s essentially a look into what I eat in a day. I’ll tell you what I loved and would order again, and what wasn’t my favorite and I probably avoid from now on.

So, let’s kick this one off on day one of my last trip to Animal Kingdom. If you want to get my full reactions to these foods, head over to my Instagram story highlights, where you can see my real-time reactions! Now, let’s head to Animal Kingdom!

Before we start talking about food, let’s break down some of the trip details:

Dates: September 6-10, 2021

Resort: Animal Kingdom Lodge – Jambo House

Jump to:

Day Two – Hollywood Studios/Disney Springs/Epcot (coming soon)

Day Three – Hollywood Studios (coming soon)

Day Four – Epcot (coming soon)

After Hours – Boo Bash (coming soon)

Disney Springs Halloween Treats (coming soon)

Resort Dining (coming soon)

Breakfast

Sausage, Egg and Cheese Biscuit

Sausage, Egg and Cheese Biscuit from Pongu Pongu

I heard a tip that the best biscuits in Animal Kingdom can be found in Pandora at Pongu Pongu, which is unsuspecting at first – However, the central kitchen is located right behind Pongu Pongu, so essentially it has something to do with the proximity from the kitchen to consumer.

This biscuit did not disappoint, the biscuit itself was perfectly golden brown, buttery in all the good ways. The cheese was perfectly melted to bring the sandwich together, and I have added this one to my list of must-order foods in Animal Kingdom.

Location: Pongu Pongu

Price: $6.99

Rating: 8.5/10

Would I Order it Again: Yes!

Rum Blossom

I will be honest, I usually don’t drink this early at Disney World, but this was a hair of the dog situation as I was struggling from drinking around the monorail the night before. Honestly, this drink never disappoints and is a staple when I am in Pandora.

My biggest complaints are, it melts fast in the Florida heat, and you have to stir it and ruin the pretty colors to mix in the rum which as served just sits on top. This one is a good combination of Desert Pear Limeade and Apple, the limeade cuts the sweetness and this one just blends so well together. There is also a non-alcoholic version of this one called the Night Blossom if drinking in the morning isn’t your thing!

Description: Bacardi Superior Rum with layers of Apple and Desert Pear Limeade topped with Passion Fruit Boba Balls.

Location: Pongu Pongu

Price: $13.00

Rating: 10/10

Would I Order it Again: Yes, and I always do!

Lunch/Snack

Look, you are going to have to roll with this one because I am more of a grazer and not someone that eats three-round meals at Disney World. So that being said you typically won’t find me eating a traditional lunch, so let’s break it down as I wander around the park. On a side note, Animal Kingdom has the best food of any Disney World Park, and you can quote me on that, so let’s continue eating!

Ngumu Jungle Juice

Orange Ngumu Jungle Juice from Dawa Bar

Okay, so recently, Disney World had a Jungle Juice shortage, the supplier they were using discontinued it, and they were without POG Juice until they could find a new supplier. It was on the menu when I went to Dawa Bar, so I asked the bartender about it. He said this was the first shift he had seen POG Juice back, and he warned me that it was different (never a good sign).

Overall, the new POG Juice is different, our beloved juice has changed, but it is still good. The Ngumu Jungle Juice is such a well-balanced drink, with peach schnapps and vodka, and it is a perfectly refreshing cocktail for when you get off the safari.

Description: Snow Leopard Vodka, Bols Peach Schnapps, and Tusker’s famous Jungle Juice.

Location: Dawa Bar

Price: $13.00

Rating: 7.5/10, this one is taking a hit solely because of the new POG Juice situation.

Would I Order it Again: Yes, but I might be trying other things.

Mr. Kamals’ Fries

Grilled Curry Corn on the Cob, Ngumu Jungle Juice, Chicken Dumplings, and Mr. Kamal's Fries

Did I choose to drown my sorrows in food when I realized the POG Juice was different? You better believe it, luckily Mr. Kamal’s is just down the path from Africa and the perfect place to grab a snack.

These fries are perfectly spiced without being spicy and are amazing if you catch them fresh out of the fryer. I hate making decisions, so that being said I will say I love the dipping sauces equally. There is a Curried Honey Mustard and the Korean Chilli Ketchup, and I enjoy mixing them together.

Description: Served with curried honey mustard or Korean chili ketchup.

Location: Mr. Kamal’s

Price: $5.99

Rating: 9.25/10

Would I Order it Again: Yes, these fries are heaven.

Chicken Dumplings

Okay, so the fries at Mr. Kamal’s typically get all the hype… however, that means you might be overlooking the chicken dumplings when you shouldn’t be! These dumplings are deep-fried to perfection and come with a ponzu sauce to dip them in. The sauce has a hint of citrus and is perfect for keeping the dumplings light and fresh.

My biggest complaint, there are only 3 dumplings for the price, so it is never going to make the list of one of the best deals in Disney.

Description: Served with Ponzu.

Location: Mr. Kamal’s

Price: $5.99

Rating: 7.5/10

Would I Order it Again: Yes, they aren’t the best value so I don’t order them often, but they are always a good treat.

Grilled Corn on the Cob

I know that corn on the cob might not be the quintessential theme park food, but you have to try this one when you are in Animal Kingdom. You have the option to get it with or without the African spices, but take my advice and order it heavy on the seasoning.

The spices are a combination of African Berbere Spice, and curry powder, and are the perfect seasoning for some fresh corn on the cob. One of the best parts about Harambe Fruit Market, which is where they sell this, is they grill the corn fresh on a large grill in front of you!

Description: With or without African Spices.

Location: Harambe Fruit Market

Price: $5.29

Rating: 10/10

Would I Order it Again: Yes, it is my number one must-order thing in Animal Kingdom.

Pumpkin Pie Latte with Kahlúa

Joffrey’s is such a staple of Disney Parks and one of my favorite locations is in the little building tucked away right across from the Yak and Yeti quick service. If you follow the path to the right of the building it will also take you down to a little seating area on the water, and it is the perfect place to character watch as they pass by on the boats.

Now let’s talk coffee, of course, I had to be basic and go with a pumpkin latte, and of course, being me, I had to spike it. And if you are looking to make this into an adult beverage, they will add shots of anything you want, so that is always a great option.

Description: Pumpkin pie syrup, milk, and espresso.

Location: Royal Anandapur Tea Company

Price: $6.09 without the alcohol.

Rating: 8/10

Would I Order it Again: Yes.

Nomad Lounge

Did you even visit Animal Kingdom if you did stop by Nomad Lounge? This lounge is tucked in right next to Tiffins and right before the bridge to Pandora, and is the perfect spot to relax and grab a drink. The waitlist often gets to capacity, but keep checking it and also ask the host if there is any availability.

Jenn’s Tattoo

Honestly, there isn’t any cocktail on this menu that you would be disappointed in if you like what is in it. Nomad Lounge does an outstanding job with their cocktails, and depending on my mood depends on what I order.

Jenn’s Tattoo is well-balanced, and I love watermelon during the summer. It also comes with a Hibiscus flower, which you can eat, and is often referred to as “nature’s fruit roll-up.”

Description: Ketel One Vodka, Watermelon, Hibiscus, and Lime Juice.

Location: Nomad Lounge

Price: $13.00

Rating: 9/10

Would I Order it Again: Yes.

Churros

Churros in a basket with two dipping sauces in front, a chili-strawberry and a Vanilla Crema

“You go and save the best for last.” These are the best churros in Disney World and that is not up for debate. Not only are they perfectly golden and covered nicely in cinnamon sugar, but they are also GLUTEN FREE. For $9 you get an entire basket, which I feel is a great Disney deal. Also, the sauces that you dip them in are perfection, the chili-strawberry has a nice kick to it, and I love dipping my churro in both.

PSA: You can also order these churros to go. Just let the host know you want to order and she will direct you to the end of the bar where you can order to-go drinks AND CHURROS!

Description: Vanilla Crema, Chili-Strawberry.

Location: Nomad Lounge

Price: $9.00

Rating: 12/10

Would I Order it Again: Yes, and if we are meeting at Nomad, please order your own!

A Day of Eating

I usually am not one to have dinner in the parks, I just think the resorts and Disney Springs offer much better options. So, usually late to mid-afternoon, I will head back to the resort to freshen up before dinner. I hope you enjoyed eating along with me on this first day of my trip, and I can’t wait to share the rest of the foods I enjoyed on my Disney trip!

Be sure to follow along because tomorrow I am wrapping up a busy day of my trip as I hopped from Studios to Springs, to Epcot, and the treats were plentiful.

The Ultimate Hollywood Studios Drinking List

Let’s continue drinking around Disney World Parks, and stop at Hollywood Studios next. There are some real hidden gems in Hollywood Studios and it has some unique cocktails you only can find there. Drinks tend to be more themed at Studios, and also in my opinion, has the best walk-up bar in Disney. This is the Ultimate Hollywood Studios Drinking List.

Galaxy’s Edge

Galaxy’s Edge is the newest land addition to Hollywood Studios, and the drinks do not disappoint. You can journey into Oga’s Cantina for an out of this world experience, but their quick services also deliver quality drinks.

Oga’s Cantina

This is a lounge unlike any other Disney lounge, you get transported to Batuu, and it is an experience that any Star Wars fan must do. Since you are on Batuu, learn the lingo – so if they ask for your credentials, they mean your ID. Yes, the drinks are expensive but they are unique and the experience is unmatched. You need to make a reservation to drink here, there is a walk-up list – but it fills quickly, so don’t count on it.

The most famed drink inside Oga’s Cantina has to be the Fuzzy Tauntaun. Overall, it is a pretty basic drink, it’s a vodka-based peach and orange drink – but that is not why you order it. It’s all about the Buzz Button Tingling Foam. What is that, you might ask? It’s made from buzz button flower, and one of the side effects is the numbing sensation it produces. Yes, this drink will make your mouth numb, and according to the residents of Batuu the foam only causes that reaction in humans. It’s not an “I can’t feel my face” situation, but it’s a unique experience for sure.

Fuzzy Tauntaun – Oga’s Cantina $16.00

Yes, there is a second drink from Oga’s on this Ultimate List, I do it with a little hesitation, but I know the Fuzzy Tauntaun might not sound appealing to everyone. Oga’s is great, but my biggest issue is, all of the drinks are premixed and come from a tap. I understand why it was done, to get people in and out – there is also a 45-minute time limit when you are at Oga’s – but for 16 bucks a drink it just feels a little too much like a cash grab. I think it takes away from the overall experience unless you aren’t sitting at the bar, because in that case, you’ll never know.

The drinks at Oga’s Cantina are unique for sure, and I also am adding The Outer Rim to this list. I have tried every drink at Oga’s and this was my last one to check off the list, and boy was I sorry I had waited that long. It’s a tequila-based drink – but it’s so smooth and the exotic fruit puree on the top is delicious.

The Outer Rim – Oga’s Cantina $16.00

Docking Bay 7

If you are looking to grab lunch, Docking Bay 7 is always a good call, the food there is outstanding and so are the drinks. So, if you can’t grab that Oga’s Reservation, you can always mobile order from Docking Bay 7. Starting off with my favorite Non-Oga’s drink, it’s the Takodana Quencher, it’s a flavored rum-based drink that is fruity and tropical without being overly sweet. Plus, you can use Photo Pass to get a fun photo with your beverage right outside Docking Bay, like this one.

Takodana Quencher – Docking Bay 7 $15.00

We are staying in Galaxy’s Edge to grab another drink, and this time it’s the Surly Sarlacc, you can get it from both Docking Bay 7 and Ronto Rosters. I am not going to tell you where you should get it – but I will say this drinks pairs nicely with a Ronto Wrap. This one features a Grapefruit and Rose Vodka which gives it a more floral taste, but it’s not overpowering and it is super refreshing. This drink also has a slight kick to it with its “spicy mango flavors.”

Surly Sarlacc – Docking Bay 7 and Ronto Roasters $13.00

Grand Avenue

BaseLine Tap House

Baseline Tap House is my go-to place to grab a drink in Hollywood Studios. It’s an excellent place to people watch, and their food is delicious too! Of course, their menu is all about beer, and if you are looking to order that I suggest asking the Cast Member for a recommendation based on your taste. They also have outstanding cocktails, which is why the California Sunset is making this Ultimate Hollywood Studios Drinking List. This one is a combination of vodka and Southern Comfort and has just the right amount of fruity sweetness. Also, order the pretzel while you are there, it makes the list for my top pretzels in Disney World and comes with beer cheese.

California Sunset – BaseLine Țap House $14.00

Toy Story Land

Woody’s Lunchbox

As far as quick services in Disney World go – Hollywood Studios has some of the best, and Woody’s Lunchbox delivers. The sandwiches here are excellent, and you can go wrong with totchos – a combination of tater tots and nachos. But today we are talking about the Ultimate Hollywood Studios Drinking List, and the Grown-Up’s Lemonade is one of the best drinks in Hollywood Studios. It’s cherry vodka, with lemonade and it’s so good. In fact, I recreated this one and it’s one of my most popular TikTok’s with more than 1.6 million videos.

Grown-Up’s Lemonade – Woody’s Lunchbox $12.00

Hollywood Boulevard

Yes, there are a few places to grab a cocktail on Hollywood Boulevard. However, none of them have really been a big stand out to me, and when they were – it was a seasonal drink. However, the outdoor bar at the Hollywood Brown Derby is AMAZING.

Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge

Of course – the most well-known thing at its restaurant’s namesake is the Grapefruit Cake, the Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge has a spin on that with the Grapefruit Cake Martini, and this one delivers. It gives you all the same flavors of the cake, just in a liquid alcoholic form. Of course, it features grapefruit vodka, along with vanilla vodka. It’s delicious, refreshing, and a nice dessert like tasting drink.

Grapefruit Cake Martini- Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge $14.00

If you are looking for a refreshing cocktail to sip, be sure to stay at Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge. I will be the first to admit that I also don’t want a strong cocktail on a really hot day, and the White Spiked Sangria here is the perfect way to cool down without drinking something too strong.

White Spiked Sangria – Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge $11.00

4 Disney World Drinks I Would NEVER Order Again

Galaxy's Edge Blue Milk

Usually, I like to give my favorite suggestions, but I thought it was time to talk about things I would never order again. ⁠ I have tried so many different drinks across the parks in Disney World, some of them are outstanding, and some of them miss the mark. Here are the drinks you will NEVER see me ordering in Disney World again!

Blue Milk

Milk Stand in Galaxy’s Edge – Look you are either #TeamBlueMilk or #TeamGreenMilk – or #TeamAllTheMilksSuck, and there honestly is no in-between. However, that being said you will NEVER catch me drinking the blue milk again. Green Milk – you aren’t my favorite, but you kinda taste like Froot Loops, so I kinda like you. ⁠⠀

Kings Cooler

Tamu Tamu Refreshments in Animal Kingdom – Now, I will never slander Dole Whip, but I will slander it when they combine it with an extremely artificial tasting watermelon-strawberry syrup. I could not in good faith tell anyone to order this. ⁠⠀

Troll Kreme

Cart in the Norway Pavilion – Okay, I know I am going to lose some of you because some of you LOVE this drink. But I’ll be honest, this is the second worse drink I have had in Epcot, the number one spot is more deserving of the terrible title. To me this just tasted like bubble gum, I am not sure how, but apparently, vanilla, cranberry, and dragon fruit combine to taste like bubble gum. ⁠⠀

Frozen Kirin

Kabuki Cafe in the Japan Pavilion – Okay, I have no beef with Kirin, in fact, I think it is a great light drinking beer. Where I draw the line is putting a slushie on the top of it. This is touted as the first place you could find this in the continental US, but honestly, we would have been better off without it.⁠⠀

What are your least favorite drinks at Disney World, you know the ones you didn’t even want to finish?

The Ultimate Epcot Drinking List

These are the drinks you NEED to order the next time you are in Epcot. Drinking Around the World can be overwhelming, there are plenty of options to choose from, but the real question is, what should you be ordering? I have tested many drinks around the World Showcase, and have determined that these are the drinks you need to order.

Of course, we are starting in Mexico, because it is the only right way to drink around the world – I mean, you do you, but the true Epcot people will judge you.

Mexico

Of course, you have to grab a margarita when in Mexico, and I recommend heading into the pavilion and checking out La Cava del Tequila. Their variety of margaritas is unparalleled to the kiosk outside – even though they are own by the same company. The drink of choice in Mexico has to be La Cava Avocado, it is their famous avocado margarita, yes, it actually has avocado in it, however, you don’t really pick up on that flavor, it just contributes to more of a creamy texture.

La Cava Avocado – La Cava del Tequila $15.50

Norway

Heading to Norway, you have limited options compared to some other countries. But I always recommend heading into Kringla Bakeri, their snacks are cheap and delicious, and I prefer it over the cart outside. My go-to choice is the Viking Coffee, which you can order both cold and hot. It is a combination of coffee, Kamora, and Baileys, and it is the perfect not too strong tasting spiked coffee.

Viking Coffee – Kringla Bakeri OG Cafe $13.00

China

China has some of the most slept on drinks in Epcot. Joy of Tea which sits right on the lagoon, is completely unsuspecting but houses some of the best drinks. Honestly, by the time you have reached China it is probably getting warm out, and the Canto Loopy is the perfect refreshing drink. It’s a combination of Cantaloupe Juice and Vodka and is a must when you pass through China.

Canto Loopy – Joy of Tea $11.00

Germany

When in Germany of course you have to have a beer, it’s the most German choice that you could make. There are quite a few beers and beer cart options in Germany, and I highly suggest picking up one of their huge pretzels, you know to soak up the alcohol. My go-to here is the Schöfferhofer Grapefruit, it is only 2.5% percent which is honestly the break your liver needs by the time you reach Germany.

Schöfferhofer Grapefruit – Beer Cart $9.50

Italy

Italy is the land of wine, and the pavilion in Epcot really reflects that, you can find wine everywhere and you can’t go wrong with it. However, my favorite beverage is seen at pretty much every festival, so you usually can find it at the festival kiosk. It’s the Italian Margarita – made with tequila and limoncello. There is something completely different about this one, and I know you wouldn’t expect to get a margarita in Italy, but I promise it’s delicious.

Italian Margarita – Italy Festival Booth

American Adventure

Things have changed recently in the American Pavilion, with the opening of Regal Eagle and the outdoor bar there. Now, I must admit I want to dig further into the bar menu than I have, but there is one clear stand out here. It’s the Moonshine Sour from Regal Eagle’s Outdoor Bar. It is the perfect combination of blackberry and blood orange, and according to the bartender, it is the most popular drink in Epcot right now.

Moonshine Sour – Regal Eagle Outdoor Bar $14.00

Japan

The Japan Pavilion hands down has the best drinks in Epcot, there, I said it. You can’t go wrong with any option in Japan, from the sake bar in the back of the pavilion to the garden house, you always can find a great option. I am the biggest fan of the Garden House and their signature cocktails, I am a die-hard Violet Sake fan, and it will always be my number one, but the Tokyo Sunset is also an excellent choice.

Violet Sake – Garden House $9.00

Morocco

If you’ve never visited the bar in the Morocco Pavilion, you need to add it to your list. The theming inside is amazing, and the drinks are even better. You might some people taking shots while drinking around the world, but I highly recommend their Sangria. It is a staple in the pavilion, and you can get it at the bar inside Spice Road Table, and no you don’t need to dine there, you can just grab your drink and go.

Sangria – Spice Road Table $11.00

France

France is one of my favorite pavilions, and by this point, you are probably really feeling drinking around the world, so might I suggest heading to the bakery and picking up a $2 baguette. It’s a steal and by your 9th drink, you are going to need it. Now onto the main event, the drink – to me the most quintessential Epcot drink can be found in France, it’s the Orange Slush from Les Vins des Chefs de France, which is a kiosk right on the lagoon. It’s a combination of Grand Marnier, Rum, and Grey Goose Orange. And if you are feeling extra, you can add an extra shot for $6.75.

Orange Slush – Les Vins des Chefs de France $11.50

United Kingdom

When visiting the UK Pavilion, you have to venture into the Rose & Crown, it is one of the best bars to grab a drink in all of Epcot. Of course, you can always go with a beer, I am a big fan of the layered beers they serve, and they have more combinations than you would think. However, my go-to drink is the Welsh Dragon, if you read the ingredients you might question my choice, but do me a favor and just go with it.

Welsh Dragon – Rose & Crown Pub $16.oo

Canada

We have finally made it to the final drink in this Drinking Around the World Tour! Canada does not disappoint, because I believe the most slept on drink in Epcot resides here, though I am not sure if it’s slept on or because it’s most people’s 11th drink, so they probably don’t really remember. I am talking about the Ottawa Apple from Popcorn in Canada. It is a great combination of whiskey, apple, and maple.

Ottawa Apple – Popcorn in Canada $13.00

Epcot’s Tipsy Ducks in Love Recipe

I love drinking around the world at Epcot, and the Tipsy Ducks in Love is one of my favorite from the China Pavilion. It’s coffee and tea base makes it perfect for being one of the first stops around the World Showcase.

While their specialty tends to be BaiJoe Punch, there is no denying how delicious the Tipsy Ducks in Love is. I have even paired it with pork egg rolls and I think it’s perfect.
