Epcot is all about festivals these days, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Walking around the expansive park, sipping worldly cocktails and munching on delectable delicacies from around the globe is even more enjoyable when the entire park is in bloom for the Flower & Garden Festival. This year’s festival is in full swing now through May 28, 2018, and you can experience just about everything with your regular Epcot ticket or annual pass.
Don’t get overwhelmed with all the “Outdoor Kitchens” throughout Future World and World Showcase. Taste as much as you want, but pace yourself–because you don’t want to miss these five favorites. Best of all, each one is eligible for the DDP (Disney Dining Plan) snack credit.
Tarte a la Tomato Provençale: Provencal Tomato Tart with Sautéed Onions, Fresh Thyme and Rosemary on a Flakey Pastry Crust
Where: Fluer de Lys, France Pavilion, World Showcase
Price: $5.50 (DDP snack eligible; vegetarian)
We’d call it a French bread pizza without the tomato sauce, but we don’t want to insult the flaky pastry by calling it merely “bread.” Cheesy, oniony, and fabulous.
Beef Tenderloin Tips, Mushroom Bordelaise Sauce, Whipped Potatoes with Garden Vegetables
Where: Northern Bloom, Canada Pavilion, World Showcase
Price: $6.75 (DDP snack eligible)
This snack has everything you need from a meal in miniature, with meat, veggies, and potatoes all in one. Quite savory and aromatic.
Spicy Hot Dog with Pineapple Chutney and Plantain Chips
Where: Pineapple Promenade, Showcase Plaza
Price: $7.50 (DDP snack eligible)
A hot dog with a hint of Dole Whip? Yes, please. It’s just the right blend of fruity and spicy.
Beef Brisket Burnt Ends Hash with White Cheddar Fondue and House-made Pickle
Where: The Smokehouse, American Pavilion, World Showcase
Price: $6.50 (DDP snack eligible)
The aroma from the smoker makes waiting in line at this outdoor kitchen a treat. Grab a seat at one of the picnic tables and savor this fan favorite, or the brand-new snack that turns this dish into a slider and adds….drumroll…pork belly!
Fried Cauliflower with Capers, Garlic Parsley, and Chili Ranch Sauce
Where: Taste of Marrakesh, Morocco Pavilion, World Showcase
Price: $5.00 (DDP Snack Eligible; vegetarian)
You need your veggies anyway. Plus everything goes down better when it’s fried. It’s a win-win.
