Walt Disney World ~ Epcot World Showcase

Once we finished test-driving cars, flying through space, tasting bitter sodas and finding out about our future … we ventured to the World Showcase Lagoon to begin the second part of our day.  Surrounding this quiet lagoon are the 11 countries that make up World Showcase. These themed pavilions are an attraction in themselves, as Disney paid great homage … with attention to detail, activities, shopping and food … to the countries included.

The World Showcase Lagoon

We had a quest … to use what was left of our snack credits (we had nine left from the Dining Plan we purchased) and eat something from each country. These tastings proved to be a fun way to experience the cultures highlighted and became something we looked forward to as we transitioned from one country to the next. We began in Mexico and worked our way around to end in Canada. Each pavilion hosted an activity (ride, movie, exhibit), restaurants and shopping along with atmosphere. Tons of atmosphere including architecture, music and street performers. I could spend a week immersing myself here … but, we only had half a day left!

 Eating around the world

  • Mexico … Hongos con Queso
  • Norway … Troll Horn
  • China … Chicken Pancake
  • Germany … Apple Strudel with Vanilla Sauce
  • Italy … Limone Sorbetto
  • America … Umm, we ate no snack here.
  • Japan … Temaki Hand Roll
  • Morocco … Harissa Chicken Kebab with Couscous
  • France … Ham and Cheese Croissant
  • United Kingdom … Sausage Roll
  • Canada … Croissant Donut

As you can see we tasted an assortment of food and weren’t limited to just dessert items or sodas using our leftover snack credits from the Dining Plan. This was a great way to work around the countries and I look forward to returning to do it again … and taste some different items! 

While our quick-paced, one park a day approach had been working so far, Epcot proved to be too large of an experience to satisfy our palates in just one day. Fortunately, we had an extra park ticket and would find it useful to finish off the park the next morning before our road trip.

 

We each took photos and videos on our iPhones during this trip. I have gathered all the footage together to create this trip journal of our adventure … offering everyone’s point of view. Hope you enjoy our trek!
