That’s right – Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and his faithful assistant, Beaker, of Muppet Labs will welcome you to their taste-testing headquarters, where the inventive duo are busy creating scientific snacks and mind-blowing beverages. You’ll have a chance to sample some of their kooky concoctions like the Unnecessarily Spicy, Yet Extremely Tasty Scotch Bonnet Pepper-Curry Wings, or the Pickle Milkshake. Consider it a flavor experiment in the name of science!

Special festival dishes and drinks are also available at permanent EPCOT dining locations, including: Connections Café, Connections Eatery, Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company, Refreshment Port, Tangierine Café: Flavors of the Medina, Funnel Cake, and Refreshment Outpost.
