Check out this great DFB reader question we received a while back!:
I am traveling to Orlando on business and will be in Epcot for one evening. What would you suggest that I do with this rare dining opportunity? Normally, my family accompanies me on this trip, but this year, I’m looking forward to a kid-free night in the park!
There are TONS of great options for a kid-free night in Epcot. I’ve got a couple in mind, but I can’t wait to hear what YOU would do!
But also, as much as we all love our families, it’s fun sometimes to have a little grown up time in the parks.
And if you’re a parent who hasn’t had a chance to do that, we still bet that you’ve got a couple of great suggestions dreamed up just in case! So share your suggestions for a dream night in Epcot in the comments section below!
As for what I would do? After about six rides in a row on Maelstrom, Spaceship Earth, Soarin’, and Test Track in a row, here’s what I’m thinking food-wise…
Tutto Gusto for Dinner
For dinner, I would choose Tutto Gusto. The wine bar, one of the newer additions to World Showcase’s Italy Pavilion, features a wonderful menu of tempting small plates — and you don’t need a reservation to dine there! Also, it’s very solo-diner friendly.
You can see a recent Tutto Gusto review right here!
The atmosphere is cozy, and the wine and beer selection is well-cultivated.
But in addition to the Tutto Gusto menu, you can also order anything that you’d like from the Tutto Italia Ristorante’s (the table service restaurant next door) menu as well.

La Cava del Tequila for a Nightcap
If you’d like a drink after dinner, there is no better place to enjoy a leisurely adult beverage than La Cava del Tequila in Epcot’s Mexico.
With a dizzying array of tequilas and specialty margaritas, this is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy a little me time.
And don’t forget to treat yourself to some of my favorite queso in Disney World…
And since you’re flying solo, you’ll have a super easy time locating a spot from which to enjoy Illuminations!
Our pick is the wide terrace in front of the Italy Pavilion, or the area just to the right of the Yorkshire County Fish Shop (if there are no private events taking place).
So, readers — now it’s your turn to share!
