Tips and Tricks: Epcot

My next Tips and Tricks is going to feature Epcot! Epcot is actually my favorite park at Walt Disney World. I LOVE Wold Showcase's atmosphere and the attractions in Future World.

FOOD

• My favorite snack in the world showcase is the sauerkraut in Germany. I used to get Bratwurst with it, but now that I don't eat meat I simply order the sauerkraut.  (I will discuss the beer in this photo later!)
• Another great place to get food in Epcot is the French Bakery! You can get a ham and cheese croissant for around $4. The bakery features lots of great sandwich type items for really great prices. 

• My favorite sit down restaurant in Epcot is tied between Le Cellier and Tutto Italia. Both of these restaurants are a bit pricy, but great if you are on the dining plan!

DRINKS
• My FAVORITE adult beverage in Epcot is the beer featured in the German pavilion. It is called Schofferhofer Grapefruit beer. This beer is so light and refreshing and great for a hot day in the parks. The only downside is that it is only 2-3% alcohol. So it is a bit pricy for what you are getting, but so worth it!

Club Cool- This is the place to go for  Coke samples. You can try different varieties of Coke from around the world, for FREE!

La Cava Del Tequila- This place is a hidden gem in Mexico. Tucked away inside the pyramid, this is the best place to go and cool off or avoid the rain storms at 3pm. I normally refuse to drink anything with tequila, but their coffee margarita is amazing. It tastes just like a frappuchino. My friend told me if you are sharing a drink with a friend to order it served in two glasses and you usually get more for your money. Also they always have specials at La Cava if you follow their Twitter page. Last time I was there you got a $5 shot or free chips and salsa for a Twitter follow. 

Sangria- Ordering a pitcher of Sangira in the Tutto Gusto Italian Wine Cellar (another hidden gem) is the best bang for your buck. The sangria is pretty yummy, and one of the best deals in world showcase. 

Attractions

The Dolphin Show in The Seas is amazing. I loved watching them do tricks for their trainers. This show happens periodically though out the day in the back corner of The Seas aquarium. 

Test Track- If you are a General Motors employee you can get fast passes for Test Track!

Figment- Don't laugh, but Figment is one of my favorite attractions. There is never a line and its always cute to watch. 

 Malestrom- RIP, this was one of the best rides in Epcot, and I am so sad to see it go to be replaced by a Frozen ride :(

Mission Space-  The nice thing about Mission Space is that they now offer two levels for the ride. A more easy level and the more intense ride. After drinking around the world I highly suggest the easier level!
