Epcot may be best known for it’s World Showcase, allowing you to eat and drink “around the world” in the matter of hours! It seems there is always some kind of festival going on at Epcot too. The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, Epcot Festival of the Arts, and the holy grail, Epcot Food & Wine Festival.
There is tons to do besides eat and drink and Epcot does offer that little ride with the not so little line, Frozen Ever After. It’s one of my favorite parks (even to bring the kids too!), but that’s all another post. Today I’m talking solely about the EATS & DRINKS! (Are you surprised?!) All the yums!
Last time we were at Epcot, it was a short 3 days before their Flower & Garden Festival opened. If you find yourself at Epcot on a normal “non-festival” day, all those extra, special festival food tents will be closed and your options are limited to what each country offers on an everyday basis. I say “limited”, but it’s anything but limited!
