Here at Dole Whipped, we are huge fans of the annual Epcot Food & Wine festival. In this episode, we give you a snapshot of the new booths and food and drink options you can find at this year’s festival!
We make it a point to try new things at Disney each time we visit so we can report back to our readers and listeners about our findings. Join us this week as we talk about the most recent new experiences we’ve had for the first time while at Disney!
Have you ever heard that Disney is for kids or that people are going to Disney for their kids? We at Dole Whipped could not agree less with this. Disney vacations are for everyone! For this article I am going to tell you why Epcot is for adults, what you can enjoy while visiting this amazing park.
Let’s start with the best of the best: Drinking Around the World! Those over the age of 21 can enjoy beer, wine, liquor and mixed drinks from eleven countries. Check out our information on this subject: Blog and the Podcast.
If you drinks aren’t your thing maybe Snacking Around the World is an option! This is a fantastic option with a group of friends so you all get a little taste of everything! Check out our articles here for ideas.
Another great option for adults are the movies that play in the pavilions of the World Showcase. France, Canada, and China all have Circle Vision 360 films featuring landmarks and places of interest in these countries. The films are fairly short and very well done and perfect for adults to enjoy.
Future World also has many great attractions and I won’t list them all, but those that adults may find most fun are Spaceship Earth, Soarin’, Living with the Land, Test Track, and Mission Space.
Dining in Epcot is a dream! There are so many choices for the adventurous eaters, French, Italian, German, Chinese, Mexican, Norwegian, seafood, and steakhouse. There are of course some character dining options but if you are looking to avoid this there are plenty of choices in Epcot. Just be sure to make your advanced dining reservations.
Illuminations Sparkling Dessert Party is a great activity for adults! You get drinks and desserts and a lovely view of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth. You can read all about it!
Seasonally there is the Flower and Garden Festival. There are the concerts, gardening seminars, playgrounds for kids, amazing gardens and topiaries, butterfly house, and food booths called Outdoor Kitchens.
Like Flower & Garden there is the Food & Wine Festival. Included with this are the Eat to the Beat Concerts, cooking and mixology classes and seminars, as well as food and drink booths from around the world.
If you’re planning a Disney vacation for 2016 or even have one planned already, you’re going to want to tune in this week as we talk about all the new additions and changes you’re going to see for next year. We also talk about 2015 Food & Wine Festival enhancements as well as park refurbishments for the latter half of 2015.
