This year’s EPCOT International Festival of the Arts is off to a roaring start!
Let’s check out another booth! At Pop Eats! you can find modern art-inspired treats featuring different colors and textures. This Food Studio encompasses what EPCOT’s Festival of the Arts represents — creative and artistic food!
You’ll find these modern and innovative eats over at World Showcase Plaza. It offers both sweet and savory dishes that just might channel your artistic side! Here’s a look at the menu!
Food at Pop Eats!
Returning from last year, you’ll find Shrimp Ceviche with Lime Mint Foam, Almond Frangipane Cake, and Pop’t Art! Now let’s take a look at all the fun options this Food Studio has to offer. A newbie to this Studio this year is the Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese for $5.
We love these soup and sammie combos! The grilled cheese was a nice basic sandwich with sharp cheese. The bread was a little greasy but still had a nice crunch to it. As for the soup, it had just enough tangy tomato flavor while still being rich and full!
Ready for some dipping action? Awwww yessss.

This pairing is a classic! If you’re looking to take it to the next level, you can also order the Tomato Soup with French Onion and Bacon Grilled Cheese for $5.25.
The onion-y option has a grainier bread and the sandwich finds a nice sweet and salty combo. The soup dunk with this sandwich is SUPREME. We also really enjoyed the wheat bread and bites that had seeds in them! And the soup is served in a can — how fun!!
Looking for a refreshing option? There’s the shrimp ceviche with lime mint foam that we’ve enjoyed in the past! The flavors added by the citrus and mint make the dish light and tasty. You can grab this one for $6. The bright citrus notes and acidity from the lime foam make this snack extra refreshing AND delicious.
Now onto the sweet stuff! If you’ve visited the Festival of the Arts in the past, you’ll probably remember this sweet, colorful cake that’s returning once again this year! The Almond Frangipane Cake is filled with colorful layers of raspberry jam and Belgian chocolate for $4.50. It just wouldn’t be a Festival of the Arts without a slice of this iconic cake!
And of course, we can’t forget about the Pop’t Art! This is a modern-designed sugar cookie with strawberry filling for $4.50. It’s like a slightly upscale version of eating a Pop Tart!
Drinks at Pop’t Eats
This year we’re missing the Blue Sky Black Cherry Boba Freeze that made its debut last year. However, there are still three other returning favorites! We’ve got the #RainbowSherbetGlitterDreamAle by Playalinda Brewing Co. to sip on for $4.50. Seriously, this is glittery beer, and it’s made our previous Best of the Fest for a reason!
Also returning is the Popping Bubbles Cocktail which we’ve enjoyed sipping on for years! You can grab this drink for $10.50. The boba is so fun!
And finally, the drink that probably best represents the theming of this Food Studio — the Tomato Soup Can Bloody Mary ($14)! We’ve seriously LOVED this drink in the past and consider it one of the best drinks we’ve EVER HAD in Disney World. Especially for Bloody Mary fans!
Pop Eats tends to be a total must-do booth at EPCOT Fest of the Arts, and this year was no different. The fun plating here totally stands up to some of the more intricate and delicate presentations at other booths, and we TOTALLY appreciate an elevated serving of some comfort food. From grilled cheese sammies and tomato soup to glittery beer — Pop Arts has brought us some STAND OUT options this year!
Stay tuned to DFB as we keep exploring the fest!!!
