Epcot’s Holidays Around the World offers guests the opportunity to experience holiday traditions from around the globe through music, stories, and (our favorite) cuisine!
So, grab your passport… (yup — they have passports this year!)
…because we’re about to take a trip around the world! Epcot’s World Showcase, that is!
First things first: be sure to pick up a Guide Map at Epcot’s entrance for this experience.
Even if you know your way around Epcot, this map — unique to the festivities – shows you which treats are available and where you can find them (it provides times for special holiday performances as well).
Let’s take it one country at a time, starting in Mexico, where La Cantina de San Angel is serving Sweet Tamales!
While the corn-based dough in this dish isn’t at all sugary (with just the slightest hint of cinammon spice), the strawberry glaze on top delivers a nice bit of sweetness. The filling is tangy, with a guava puree (and I believe a hint of pineapple, as well).
Holiday Waffles and Drinks at Promenade Refreshments
Now, before we hit the rest of the countries in World Showcase, Promenade Refreshments is offering a few treats exclusive to the holidays, too!
We’ll be back soon with a full review of both waffles and some of that peanut butter hot cocoa, but here’s a pic of the Savory Waffle to whet your whistle!
Portable holiday dinner!
