Mexico Review – 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival

Given my family’s overall love for Mexican food, you can rest assured we were going to stop by the Mexico booth at the 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival. Tacos, enchiladas, mole, margaritas? Yes, sign us up, please! The Mexico booth had plenty that we wanted to try.

As we stop by the Mexico booth, we noticed one unique thing about the menu. That would be that the menu is entirely new this year. Not a single entrée from last year returns. I think Carla was particularly disappointed that the Coconut Rice Pudding did not. You can see the full Mexico booth menu below.

As part of our Spain review from the 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival, we sampled all three dishes.

Spain Review – 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival

Inspired by our complete enjoyment of our meal at Jaleo, we decided to try all of the food offerings at the Spain global marketplace at the Food & Wine Festival. Spain is one of the relatively new booths at the festival, making its debut in 2017.

The Spain booth features two returning items and some modifications to the paella from last year. While we weren’t necessarily overwhelmed with excitement at the offerings, we were intrigued to try them. By the time we got to this booth I was pretty hungry and on the hunt for some gluten free items, which Spain does feature.

Here in our Shimmering Sips review, we'll cover the desserts available at this booth and one of the mimosas.

Shimmering Sips Review – 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival

Shimmering Sips is a booth located near the entrance to World Showcase, across from the Port of Entry store in World Showcase Plaza. This booth seems to be an amalgam of items from prior festivals. With the closure of the festival center in the old Wonders of Life Pavilion (this year’s festival center is the in World ShowPlace events pavilion located between the Canada and UK pavilions), the mimosa bar that was located there last year has become the foundation of this booth. Also offered are three desserts. The Banana Almond Soft-Serve Sundae from last year’s Almond Orchard booth is one of the desserts offered here. We’ll cover several of these items here in our Shimmering Sips Review.

The Alps Review – 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival

As we keep working our way through the booths we ate at during the 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival, we now get to the other new food booth this year, The Alps! When I heard the booth’s name, I immediate thought of Swiss-inspired food, and that is precisely what we get here. As the Disney World website says and the name implies, this booth invites you to “Explore the delicious tastes of these Swiss-inspired dishes!”

As part of our Coastal Eats review we found 2 returning favorites and one new dish.

Coastal Eats Review – 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival

We continue our coverage of the various food booths at Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival. In this post, we have our Coastal Eats review. As the name probably suggests, this booth focuses on food from the sea. The Coastal Eats booth is located in the Next Eats area, just behind the southern Innoventions West (until they start demolishing it soon). In case you aren’t aware, the Next Eats area includes Coastal Eats, Earth Eats and Active Eats.

The Active Eats booth at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival can be found in the "Next Eats" section of booths.

Active Eats Review – 2019 Epcot Food and Wine Festival

Active Eats is a returning booth located in the “Next Eats” area of the festival. The three booths that make up “Next Eats” are Active Eats, Earth Eats and Coastal Eats. They are located in Future World West, near the walkway behind Innoventions West heading towards World Showcase Plaza.

Active Eats, given its name, invokes thoughts of light and healthy fare that support an active and healthy lifestyle. Well, two out of the three dishes seem to work within this thought process…one not so much.
