Podcast Episode 96: Snacking Around The World

You know here at Dole Whipped we are serious about snacking, so on our most recent trip to Walt Disney World, we decided to snack our way around the World Showcase at Epcot.  Listen in as we talk about all the food we tried and what we loved and what we didn’t.  We had such a great time snacking we wanted to share it with you so you could do your own Snack Around The World adventure!

Happy listening!

Drinking Around the World: Part III

In the final installment of our Drinking Around the World series we’ll be stopping by France, the UK and Canada! Make sure you check out Parts I and II for the best drinking around the world options in the rest of the world showcase.

First stop, France. Les Vins de France is the name of the kiosk where you’re going to head for the best alcoholic beverages in France. Unsurprisingly there are many choices available for wine by the glass at this location including reds, whites and at least one blush wine. However, most people actually skip the wine in France and instead opt for one of two of arguably the most popular drinks in all of Epcot: the Grey Goose Citron Lemonade Slush or the Grand Marnier & Grey Goose Orange Slush. Both are the perfect ice cold refreshing drink after a long walk around the world showcase at Epcot!

Our second to last stop on the Drinking Around the World tour is the UK pavillion. If you’re just looking for a quick stop you’re going to head to the Rose & Crown pub’s outdoor kiosk. There you will find three different types of beer: Bass, Stella Artois, and of course Guiness. There are also three types of hard cider at this location which would be my personal preference. If you want to spend more time you can reserve a seat inside the Rose & Crown for the option to order off their extensive list of beers or one of their mixed liquor drinks including the Welsh dragon which is made of orange and pineapple juices, Peach Schnapps, Melon Liqueur and Crème de Menthe. Yum! One other fun thing that the Rose & Crown pub does is mix beers. You can order pitchers of different beers mixed together including the Bumblebee which is a mix of Boddingtons and Guinness.

And finally, Canada. Now, unfortunately Canada doesn’t have very many choices but hey, by this point you may not care too much right? For the beer enthusiasts you can choose between Moosehead, Labatt or Molson beers. Recently there have been reports of a very highly rater beer called Le Fin du Monde also available in Canada. For the liquor lovers there is the option of a Torontopolitan which is made from vodka, chambord and cranberry and orange juices!

Imagineer for the Day-Epcot

Epcot is a park that hasn’t seen new work in a long time. We will be seeing a new Frozen attraction in 2016 but if I were in an Imagineer for the day here is what I would do.

World Showcase could really use some more attractions for the whole family, the films just aren’t cutting it. I would add a dark ride to Germany, one that takes you through different regions of Germany. The rooms could represent the most popular regions displayed on screens similar to that in the Gran Fiesta Tour.

Next in France we will take a ride with Remy from Ratatouille around Paris and follow his adventures based on the film.

If we wanted to go really bold we could add a Mary Poppins attraction in the United Kingdom pavilion. I’d love to see Mary and Bert on their Jolly Holiday.

In Future World I would also make some more changes. Let’s first get rid of Ellen’s Universe of Energy, in its place will go an E-ticket attraction similar to Test Track. Maybe an energy themed ride with is interesting and educational.

It is possible that after all the work is done in Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios that Epcot will see the next change.  But until then all we can do it dream!

If you missed Part I or Part II check them out!  Leave a comment of what you would change in Epcot.
