Update: We’ve added some additional menu information for Spice Road Table and Tutto Gusto, in addition to the La Cava del Tequila menu!
We have got BIG news for you today out of Epcot!
We all love sampling and drinking our way around Epcot’s World Showcase, right? Well, things just got a little more interesting on that front, with the introduction of After Hours Wind Down!
Epcot After Hours Wind Down!
After you enjoy Illuminations over World Showcase Lagoon (yep — AFTER the park closes!), purchase a ticket and choose from four of World Showcase’s hottest spots for drinks and small plates! (We’ve got a sample menu for you at the bottom of this post, so keep reading!)
Tickets are available today for dates starting Thursday, April 17, and running through mid-September on select nights.
Choose from the following spots in Epcot:
- La Cava del Tequila in the Mexico Pavilion
- Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room in the UK Pavilion
- Spice Road Table in the Morocco Pavilion
- Tutto Gusto in the Italy Pavilion
This is a hard ticketed event. The price for admission to Epcot After Hours Wind Down is $35 per guest, and entitles the guest to one beverage and a selection of light snacks. Tax and gratuity are not included in the cost.
After guests enjoy their included tasting, they’re free to stick around and enjoy the venue until 11 p.m.
We think this is going to be huge! Advance Dining Reservations are available 180 days out, so we definitely recommend that you take advantage of them if you’re interested. I know I am!!
While we are still awaiting to hear the full menus for all of the venues, we did manage to get our hands on menu information for La Cava del Tequila. 😉 We have a few details about some of the other menus as well.
At La Cava, guests will enjoy a sampler of the following dishes:
- Ceviche Acapulqueño (Shrimp cocktail Acapulco Style)
- Tlacoyo de Puerco (Marinated Pork served over a grilled corn dough, garnished with mixed greens and crema)
- Tostada de Tinga (Shredded chicken served on a tostada, garnished with mixed greens, creme fresco and avocado)
On the drinks front, guests can enjoy a choice of the following:
- Tequila flight
- Shot of Tequila Ambhar Blanco
- Shot of Tequila Partida Reposado
- Shot of Tequila Casa Noble Añejo
- Shot of Mezcal Sombra Blanco
So far, at Spice Road Table, we know that guests will enjoy a menu that “may include Lamb Sliders, Chicken Rolls, or Moroccan Sausages paired with a White or Red Wine Flight.” And over at Tutto Gusto, we expect to see an offering that “may include traditional cured meats, cheeses, and Italian Antipasti paired with Italian wine flights.” We’re still awaiting word from the offerings at Rose and Crown, and we will share them with you as soon as we can.
Keep in mind that to enjoy After House Wind Down, regular admission to Epcot is required AND separate admission for the Wind Down is required, and is not included in the regular ticket price. After Hours Wind Down begins immediately after the conclusion of Illuminations.
We’ll be trying out this exclusive, after hours event as soon as possible, and we can’t wait to tell you all about it! Read more and book at DisneyWorld.disney.go.com/dining/epcot/after-hours.
