Review: Morocco Juice Bar at Epcot’s Spice Road Table

It’s no secret that we think Morocco has some of the most intriguing options in Epcot’s World Showcase, so we’re going to take a closer look!

The juice bar outside the Spice Road Table restaurant in the Morocco pavilion has some refreshing options you might be interested in! The bar is basically a walk-up window serving some unique drinks. (They used to have house-made ice cream, but, alas, no longer.) While you wait for your table at Spice Road Table or walk around the World Showcase, stop by the juice bar for a pick-me-up!

Review: Bubble Milk Tea at Epcot’s Joy of Tea

We have a fun treat for you at the China Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase!

Let’s face it: Disney World is hot. With the exception of a few weeks out of the year, you’re going to be craving a refreshing drink as a mid-day treat. And Epcot’s Joy of Tea has just the thing for you!

We’re big fans of this snack stop. For such a tiny booth, it has a pretty extensive menu! The egg rolls and curry chicken pockets are tasty little snacks that will hold you over until your next meal while you explore the World Showcase.

And, most importantly, they have a wide selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks (including the fan favorite Tipsy Ducks in Love!).

Today, we’ll check out the Bubble Milk Tea!

What’s New Around Walt Disney World: August 18, 2016

We know, we know… Back-to-School time is fast approaching (and in some spots, it’s already arrived!). But the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer aren’t quite over just yet, so we’ve still got some summer celebrating to do!

And, hey, the coming of Fall isn’t so bad, anyway. Not when we’ve got our very favorite autumnal event coming to the first stop on our tour in a matter of weeks. That’s why we’re kicking things off at Epcot to see What’s New!

Epcot

Food & Wine Festival Coming Soon!

The 2016 Epcot Food & Wine Festival will be here before we know it! Sure signs of its return are starting to appear around the park…

Review: Mickey Oreo Cheesecake at Epcot’s Sunshine Seasons

We found the cutest treat at Sunshine Seasons in Epcot’s The Land Pavilion!

The Land is the huge building at the back of the park that houses Soarin’, Living with the Land, and the beloved counter service spot Sunshine Seasons! The counter-service restaurant has a great selection of meals including an oak-grilled station with oak-grilled salmon, sandwich station (wraps included!), and even an Asian grill station, where you can find fan-favorite Mongolian Beef and Fried Rice!

As if that weren’t reason enough to visit Sunshine Seasons, you can also find some ah-mazing treats like our favorites the warm peanut butter brownie and the strawberry shortcake.

Review: New Snacks at Liberty Inn in Epcot’s World Showcase

While we count down to all the delicious snacks at this fall’s Food and Wine Festival, Liberty Inn at Epcot’s World Showcase has a couple new things to try!

Liberty Inn is located in Epcot’s World Showcase, which is basically a buffet of international treats! With all the available options, you might be tempted to skip over colonial fare here. However, Liberty Inn is a solid choice for a quick-service meal with picky eaters — getting a decent New York Strip Steak for less than $12 doesn’t hurt either.

Liberty Inn is attached to the impressive American Adventure building with indoor and outdoor seating. If you find yourself wandering the World Showcase without an advance dining reservation, this could be the perfect way to beat the heat!

After your meal, step next door to watch the talented a cappella group, Voices of Liberty perform!

Review: Roule Lard et Fromage (Bacon and Cheese Roll) at Epcot’s Les Halles

You know, there are few better ways — especially while Soarin’ is undergoing refurb ;) — to start a day at Epcot than a visit to Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie in Epcot’s France Pavilion.

Even though we talk about Les Halles a lot here on the DFB (it’s one of our Favorite Epcot Restaurants, after all), it still comes as a surprise to lots of guests that you can indeed start your day at Epcot here.

Unique among World Showcase counter service eateries, Les Halles opens at 9:00 am, whereas the rest open along with World Showcase at 11:00AM daily. (Future World spots like Fountain View and Sunshine Seasons are the places you can find breakfast items upon Epcot’s typical 9:00AM opening).

Now, you may think it’s all sweet treats at Les Halles, and if you want to start your day with Mousse au Chocolat, a Napoleon, or even a coffee-infused Café Liégeois, then have at it — you’re on vacation!

The countdown is ON for September 14, 2016. Why? Because THAT’S the day the 2016 Epcot Food and Wine Festival begins!

But it gets even better… because this year, the Festival has been extended to run 62 days. It won’t wrap up until November 14th. That means TWO FULL MONTHS of the Food and Wine Festival!
