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!”
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.
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.
Hawai’i is a booth at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival that we definitely looked forward to eating at again. The 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival incarnation of the Hawai’i booth is mostly like last year. The only change from is the addition of the Aulani Sunrise. Here in our Hawai’i review from the Food and Wine Festival, we’ll review the items we ate, including our thoughts on those dishes.
Australia is a returning favorite this year to the 2019 Epcot Food and Wine Festival. The booth is located just to the right of the Port of Entry store and almost across from the Refreshment Port. Its location near the entry area to the World Showcase and proximity to the Canada booth makes this a popular stop. The booth is also popular due to its excellent food and drink options.
Today we return to Garden Grill over in Epcot’s The Land Pavilion. This table service restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a family-style meal setting. This time we are reviewing dinner at Garden Grill. For all practical purposes, this is lunch too, as the meals are the same. We just happened to have dinner at Garden Grill on this trip. As we noted in our Garden Grill breakfast review, this Epcot restaurant is a notable venue for several reasons. First is that it is the only rotating restaurant at Disney World. Second, it is one of only a few restaurants that overlook a ride. Third, it is an all you care to eat meal. Finally, Garden Grill is a character meal! We’ll cover all of this here in our Garden Grill dinner review.
Here in our ultimate guide to the 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival, we’ll give you as much information as we can on all the things you can do at this annual event. The Epcot Food & Wine Festival is Disney World’s celebration of culinary delights from around the world. Some might say that sounds ambitious, but I think it undersells what this festival actually does. We’ll update this page each year as we get new information on the upcoming year’s festival. As we laid out in the beginning, currently this page is geared around the 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival.
Epcot’s World Showcase is known for showcasing (no pun intended) the culture and food of 11 countries around the world. Situated in the Mexico pavilion at Epcot, you will find the San Angel Inn Restaurante. We’ve seen some people describe the food served here as Tex-Mex and I have to say that can’t be anything further from the truth. I say that as someone who grew up eating real Tex-Mex every week…or maybe every day. Here in our San Angel Inn Restaurante review, we’ll talk about the atmosphere, theming and food at this decidedly Mexican restaurant.
