But if you’ve always bypassed Future World eats in favor of World Showcase, you’ll want to watch our newest DFB YouTube video to learn about some of the options unique to Future World, including one of our all-time favorite character meals, some super yummy popcorn, and one of the best dessert bakery cases in all of Disney World.

Review: New Mocha Brownie at Epcot’s Fountain View

When you stop by Fountain View in Epcot for your Starbucks fix, there’s a new sweet treat to try!

There are two ways to ride Soarin without a FastPass: groggily walk to park opening and make a mad dash to be first in line, or leisurely stroll into Epcot and stand in the hours-long line that’s waiting for you. So whether you make your coffee stop before or after, Fountain View will come in handy.

You can’t miss Fountain View on your way to the back of the park. It will be looking over Epcot’s amazing fountains directly across from Mouse Gears and right next to Club Cool.
