There are so many delicious treats to enjoy at Walt Disney World and after compiling our list of the best snacks throughout the resort, we’re going park by park! Last week, we released our list of the best Magic Kingdom snacks and this week, we’re moving over to the best EPCOT snacks- where else can you eat around the world in a day??
While Canada is known for the fantastic steaks at Le Cellier, they don’t really have a high-profile “snack” unless it’s festival season. Year-round, we always stop at the popcorn cart in Canada for an ice cold Moosehead beer (and a refill of our popcorn bucket– they have maple popcorn!). For just $8.75, you can have a taste of Canada and enjoy it in front of the beautiful Victoria Gardens (inspired by Butchart Gardens in Victoria, BC).
Continuing our way around World Showcase, France is well known for its delicious treats and we always stop for pastries at Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie. The Duo and the Napoleon are two of our faves and we often pair them with a Kronenbourg 1664— which we were originally introduced to on the flight to Paris for our honeymoon! The desserts at Les Halles range from $4.25 to $5.75 and count as a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan, and at only $6.57, the beer is a steal!
Did you know that you can get an Ice Cream Martini in France? At L’Artisan des Glaces, you can pair their amazing ice cream with a shot of Grand Marnier, Whipped Cream Vodka or Rum, for a more adult treat. While a scoop of ice cream does count as a snack credit, unfortunately, the ice cream martini does not and it will run you about $12.
Wrapping up our favorites in France, the Grey Goose Citron Slush from Les Vins des Chefs de France is another fan favorite. The sister drink to the Grand Marnier Slush, we’ve found this one to be more refreshing on a hot day at EPCOT but both are tasty treats. The lemonade and vodka pair nicely together and the combination is really refreshing on a hot day in the World Showcase. While it’s not eligible on the Disney Dining Plan, it comes in right at $10 which is really not a bad price for what you’re getting.
Continuing with cold, refreshing treats, the Kakigori from Kabuki Cafe in Japan is ah-ma-zing! The giant serving of Japanese shaved ice comes topped with tangerine, strawberry, melon, blue raspberry, cherry or a rainbow of any three syrups. It’s $4 (or $5 if you add the sweet milk topping, and you totally should) and eligible as a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan.
Germany has plenty of tasty options from bratwurst to pretzels but we love the sweet treats at Karamell-Küche. As soon as you walk in, the scent of caramel, Werther’s Caramel to be exact, fills the air and it smells SO. GOOD. You really can’t go wrong with any of the choices here, but our favorites are the Caramel Pecan Bar and the Caramel Butter Bar. At $3.99 and $4.49 respectively, and both Disney Dining Plan eligible, they’re the perfect sweet treat.
Continuing around World Showcase, Norway has one of our favorite sweet, but not-too-sweet treats at Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe. Schoolbread, a perennial fan-fave, is a custard filled sweet roll dipped in toasted coconut and topped with more of the delicious custard. While it’s a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan, since it’s only $3.99, it may not be the best use of one of your credits- but definitely get one!
While not technically a snack, the Taco Trio from La Cantina de San Angel is easy to split so that everyone can have a taste of Mexico. The trio comes with one beef, one chicken, and one fish taco and a side of black beans and rice for just $13.50. Even though it’s technically an entrée and can definitely be enjoyed as such, we love splitting it as a snack as we eat our way around the world.
Last but not least, our favorite snack in Future World is from Club Cool. Sponsored by Coca-Cola, this “exhibit” offers (free) tastes of sodas from around the world ranging from our favorite, Thai Fanta Melon Frosty, to the ever-popular Italian Beverly (make sure you have a camera ready to catch the reactions for that one!). To beat the heat in Orlando, you can get a Frozen Coke for just under $5- or a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan. And, if you’re wearing a birthday/anniversary button, you can get yours on the house!
Thanks for following along on our favorite snacks at EPCOT! With so many fantastic treats around World Showcase, where will you start? What’s your fave EPCOT snack??
