The Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Arts is one of the most BEAUTIFUL festivals of the year.
The festival features gorgeous art, fun photo ops, and handcrafted food items. Disney Chefs show off their creativity with ornate food displays that are pretty enough for a picture. Some of the snacks are practically begging to be photographed. We’re breaking down the most Instagram-worthy eats at this year’s festival!
Passion Fruit Mousse with Dragon Fruit Jam
Hot pink and dressed up for a masquerade, the Passion Fruit Mousse with Dragon Fruit Jam is the first on our list of Instagrammable goodies! The second we were handed this treat we knew this would top the list!
This dish is one of many vibrantly colored, passion fruit dishes at the Vibrante & Vivido booth and costs $4.75. It’s hard to find a background that this mousse DOESN’T look great on! The contrast between the hot pink and bright yellow is super eye catching and is sure to stop any scroller in their tracks. Heck, we’re already double-tapping the screen.
And, it’s even pretty on the inside! Placed on top of a thin crumbly cookie with dragon fruit jam adding another vibrant color to the mix, you won’t be able to choose only one photo to share. Plus, we thought it was delicious, so you can give it a try after the photoshoot.
Red Velvet Funnel Cake with Cream Cheese Icing and Pixie Dust
We’re pretty sure this one is already up on Tinker Bell’s Insta because it is LITERALLY sprinkled in pixie dust!! The Red Velvet Funnel Cake topped with Cream Cheese Icing and Pixie Dust found at the Funnel Cake Stand is sure to add a sparkle to your feed for $9.50.
Now, we’ve seen pixie dust in hair before, but we think pixie dust on food might be equally as magical. And, this pixie dust is pink, blue, and gold, fit for any prince’s or princess’ social media feed!
For the best sparkling shot, get your photos during the day time so you can really see the pixie dust topping! The red of the funnel cake really pops in the sun too! And, if you’re a fan of sugar, you’re going to enjoy sampling your photo subject (it’s covered in cream cheese frosting so of course it’s awesome).
Vanilla, Rose Water, and Pistachio Panna Cotta
The Vanilla, Rose Water and Pistachio Panna Cotta has made it’s return to the festival this year at The Masterpiece Kitchen and we still think it’s one of the prettiest desserts we’ve seen!
The white chocolate rose shell stands perfectly above the green crumbs on the plate, making it look like it was picked fresh from a rose garden and put onto your Instagram feed. And, the inside is even a pretty shot, proving that not all wilting roses are cursed like the one the Beast had in Beauty and the Beast.
Available for $8, this rose just might be more photogenic than any flower bouquet we’re ever received — and you can eat this one!
Speaking of Instagram-worthy flowers, what about a stunning vibrant drink with flowers on top? The Sea Butterfly, which is a Butterfly Pea Flower infused Cocktail with Lychee Syrup, Vodka, Light Rum, and Magic Boba Pearls, has made it’s return to The Painted Panda this year!
It’s best to snap your photos of this drink right when it’s served because the color contrast is most visible before you start sipping. Does anyone else think they would see this on Mulan’s feed? The flowers look like they were picked from her dad’s garden and sent to EPCOT for all of us to enjoy!
The purple POPS hard! The boba bubbles are a bit more difficult to photograph but the beverage still looks as gorgeous as ever! No matter what angle you get of this drink, it would be tough to scroll past! You can grab this at The Painted Panda for $12.50.
Frida Carrot Margarita
From El Artista Hambriento in Mexico comes this Frida Kahlo-inspired margarita that sports a unique look and unique flavors. The Frida Carrot Margarita features Casa Noble Blanco Tequila, Carrot Juice, Ginger Cordial, Lime Juice, and Agave Nectar. It comes with a very Instagram-worthy decoration — a Lemongrass bubble that sits atop the drink.
Unfortunately, it was pretty windy when we snagged our drink (you know how it is near the World Showcase Lagoon), so we were only able to get one quick shot of the bubble before it was taken by the wind.
If you’re hoping to impress your followers, be sure to snap your pic fast before it’s too late! You can grab your own Frida Carrot Margarita for $14.50.
The snacks we chose were almost too pretty to eat! (We said almost. We absolutely devoured these gorgeous items.) The Chefs went out of their way to create tasty treats and they also stepped up the presentation considerably. Your followers will be super jealous when they see you post these snacks!
