Iconic BeaverTails Pastries Returning to EPCOT for 2023 International Food & Wine Festival

BeaverTails are an iconic Canadian pastry once sold long ago at the Canada Pavilion in EPCOT. After being missing from the park for over 15 years, they have quietly returned to the menu for the 2023 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival!

While they will be served at the Refreshment Port just outside of the Canada Pavilion instead of Canada itself, BeaverTails are back.


On the festival page of the Walt Disney World website, Disney discreetly added BeaverTails under the Refreshment Port menu without much fanfare, though the excitement is likely to grow as word spreads. While BeaverTails can be served with many different toppings, the one available at this year’s festival will be a “Cinnamon-Sugar Beaver Tail.”

We previously spotted BeaverTails at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions expo in 2015:

Ever since the first BeaverTails stand opened at Byward Market in Ottawa — Canada’s capital city — over four decades ago, hungry customers have been enamored.
