REVIEW: ALL Food & Beverage Items Available During the 2024 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival

As invited media, Disney provided WDWNT with a gift card for food and beverage for the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, so some of the following coverage was hosted. As always, WDWNT will still provide our honest thoughts on all below.

The 2024 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival has officially started! While you’re visiting the park and taking in all of the beautiful topiaries, don’t forget to stop into the various Outdoor Kitchens for some delicious, fresh, tasty bites. To help you figure out which are the best from Flower & Garden, and which we recommend staying away from, check out our complete reviews for each kitchen below or keep scrolling for our video review.

BRUNCHCOT

Food:

  • Avocado Toast – $6
  • 🆕 Biscuit and Gravy with Impossible™ Chicken Fried Steak and Impossible Sausage Gravy – $6.75
  • Fried Cinnamon Roll Bites – $5

Beverages:

  • Froot Loops® Shake (non-alcoholic) – $5
  • Peach Bellini – $11.50
  • Coffee Cocktail: Joffrey’s Coffee™ with Milk, Vanilla Vodka, Kahlúa Rum and Coffee Liqueur – $11

Avocado Toast – $6

with Marinated Tomatoes and Plant-Based Cheese Crumbles on Toasted Ciabatta

The avocado toast is sure to be a popular option! It is LOADED with creamy avocado, covering nearly the entire portion of the toast. The toast itself is quite nice, offering a nice exterior crunch with a soft inside. The tomatoes are flavorful, and the plant-based cheese is good. Considering this is a trendy dish served nearly anywhere you could go for brunch, we’re happy to see it at the festival, even if this isn’t the memorable take on the dish.

*NEW* Biscuit and Gravy – $6.75

with Impossible Chicken Fried Steak and Impossible Sausage Gravy

Many of the plant-based options are good, but this is not one of them. The biscuit and gravy are nice, but they’re ruined by the dry and chewy Impossible meat.

Fried Cinnamon Roll Bites – $5

with Cream Cheese Frosting and Candied Bacon

A close-up of the Fried Cinnamon Roll Bites from BRUNCHCOT.

Rank out of 7: 7

Phenomenal. While it’s not advertised, these are also cream-filled. The crispy, flakey, cinnamon-covered exterior, matched with rich cream and a hint of bacon, makes for a glorious combination. These would be an item we would get every time we visit EPCOT, if we could. It’s also a pretty solid serving size for the price.

Froot Loops Shake (non-alcoholic) – $5

A close-up of the Froot Loops Shake.

Rank out of 7: 5

We were excited to try this, but it was beyond even our expectations. The shake itself tastes like a bowl of Froot Loops, as the milk has absorbed all of the sugary, fruity taste of the cereal. We don’t recommend using a straw, because getting the crunch of the Fruit Loops breaks up the texture of the shake. If you’re looking for something interesting or new that you haven’t had before, we recommend checking this out.

Peach Bellini – $11.50

Rank out of 7: 4

This is a very champagne-forward drink. We had a bit of a problem as most of our peach flavoring was found sitting at the bottom of the glass, but after we gave the drink a good stir, everything mixed together nicely. Our biggest gripe is that this is a bit on the smaller side for the price, and there are probably better options available at another kitchen. However, this drink is refreshing and fruity should you choose to give it a try.

Coffee Cocktail – $11

Joffrey’s Coffee™ with Milk, Vanilla Vodka, Kahlúa Rum and Coffee Liqueur

A reporter holding up a glass of the Coffee Cocktail.

Rank out of 7: 6

We love a coffee cocktail, and this one is certainly very good. It tastes very similar to the often admired Tipsy Ducks in Love from the Joy of Tea kiosk in China (which we love). With more alcohol and less creaminess in the flavor profile, this may be a rare coffee cocktail from a theme park that pleases many guests with different palates.

Brunchcot is located at World Discovery near Test Track. You can find it at number 3 on the map below.

EPCOT Farmers Feast

Early Bloom Menu (Available Feb. 28 through March 30)

Food:

  • 🆕Veal Loin – $8.50
  • Strawberry Rhubarb Upside-Down Cake – $4.75
  • Grilled Street Corn on the Cob – $5.75

Beverages:

  • Hibiscus Lemonade Cocktail – $12
  • 🆕Frozen Lemon Tea Cocktail – $12

*NEW* Veal Loin – $8.50

with Spring Pea Risotto featuring Ben’s Original International Grains Arborio Rice and Red Wine Syrup

A white bowl with veal loin atop a bed of green risotto.

Rank out of 7: 5

The veal is juicy and pairs well with the pungent sauce. The rice is cooked well and makes a good base for the dish.

Strawberry Rhubarb Upside-Down Cake – $4.75

with Crème Fraîche Whipped Cream

A reporter holds up a plate of Strawberry Rhubarb Upside-Down Cake.

Rank out of 7: 7

This dessert was very fruit-forward, coming off as tart, but still very good. We found the cake to be very moist. You could taste the rhubarb, which was subtle and complimented the strawberry nicely. While the white dollop next to the cake might look like ice cream, it’s Crème Fraîche whipped cream (fancy French whipped cream.) It was delicious! The whole dish was amazing, and we recommend getting this dessert.

Grilled Street Corn on the Cob – $5.75

with Savory Garlic Spread and Plant-Based Cheese

A Grilled Street Corn on the Cob sits on a plate, with its bottom half wrapped in tin foil.

Rank out of 7: 5

The seasoning on this corn on the cob is good, but nothing special. Corn on the cob is usually street food for fairs and flea markets, so it feels like there was a lack of effort/ingenuity in creating this for the outdoor kitchen.

It would have been better if it was hot, but that’s always a gamble with festival food. The vegan cheese is the weakest part, but overall, it’s good.

Hibiscus Lemonade Cocktail – $12

featuring Islamorada Brewery and Distillery Hibiscus Gin

A close-up of the Hibiscus Lemonade Cocktail, which appears to glow bright purple.

Rank out of 7: 5

The first sip of this beverage was extremely tart, to the point that it made our mouths pucker. After letting the ice melt a little bit, this was a nice lemonade option. The strong notes of hibiscus and the dry gin help balance out the sour lemonade. If you enjoy tropical hibiscus flavors and dry gin, this would be a refreshing choice!

*NEW* Frozen Lemon Tea Cocktail – $12

with Bärenjäger Honey and Bourbon

A clear plastic cup with a cloudy peach-toned cocktail

Rank out of 7: 6

This is a strong cocktail with an equally strong honey flavor reminiscent of Halls lozenges. It’s alcohol-forward.

Late Bloom Menu (Available March 31 through May 27)

EPCOT Farmers Feast late bloom menu

Food:

  • Grilled Street Corn on the Cob – $5.75
  • 🆕Seared Scallop – $7.75
  • 🆕Blueberry Buckle – $4.75

*NEW* Seared Scallop – $7.75

with Tomato Risotto featuring Ben’s Original International Grains Arborio Rice and Tomato Beurre Blanc

Farmers Feast seared scallop

Rank out of 7: 5

The scallop was prepared perfectly and flavorful. It paired well with the risotto and sauce, which was delectable. We wish it had more than one scallop. It was so good but the portion was small.

*NEW* Blueberry Buckle – $4.75

with Lemon Crème Fraiche

Farmers Feast blueberry buckle

Rank out of 7: 6

This is basically a coffee cake with blueberries inside and blueberries on the side. It was a home run. The brown sugar and butter taste of the streusel-like crumble topping was amazing and its texture contrasted the rest of the dish well. We wanted more.

EPCOT Farmer’s Feast is located at World Discovery near the bridge to World Showcase. You can find it at number 4 on the map below.

The Citrus Blossom

Food:

  • Orange Sesame Tempura Shrimp – $7
  • Lemon Meringue Pie – $4.75

Beverages:

  • Orange-Lemon Smoothie in a Souvenir Orange Bird Sipper Cup (non-alcoholic) – $15
  • 🆕Key Lime Wine Slush – $12
  • 🆕Left Hand Brewing Lemon Drop Shandy, Longmont, CO – $5.75 for 6 oz./$9.75 for 12 oz.
  • 🆕Southern Tier Brewing Company Orange Twist Imperial Ale, Lakewood, NY – $5.75 for 6 oz./$9.75 for 12 oz.
  • 🆕Stone Brewing Tangerine Express Hazy IPA, Escondido, CA – $5.75 for 6 oz./$9.75 for 12 oz.

Orange Sesame Tempura Shrimp – $7

with Orange-Chile Sauce

A cardboard container sits on a black metal table, filled with five pieces of Orange Sesame Tempura Shrimp.

Rank out of 7: 3

This dish is a great size for a festival, however we found the flavor to be lacking. There wasn’t much of the Orange-Chile sauce to be found, leaving the overall taste of this dish to be deep-fried. If we had more of the sauce, we think this could’ve been pretty good.

Lemon Meringue Pie – $4.75

Lemon Curd, Lemon Mousse, and Toasted Meringue

A tart-sized Lemon Meringue Pie sits on a black plate.

Rank out of 7: 2

This is extremely sour and very tart. The crust does nothing but hold it together. If you love lemon, maybe you’ll like this, but it didn’t do anything for us.

Orange-Lemon Smoothie in a Souvenir Orange Bird Sipper Cup (non-alcoholic) – $15

A reporter holds up the Orange Bird Sipper.

Rank out of 7: 7

If you’re looking for a (cute) nonalcoholic beverage, this is one of our favorites. The smoothie tastes similar to a Creamsicle, with a little bit of lemon sorbet mixed in. It’s sweet, but still incredibly refreshing.

*NEW* Key Lime Wine Slush – $12

A plastic margarita glass overflowing with lime green slush.

Rank out of 7: 7

This has the perfect iconic Key Lime tartness in a smooth, cool slush.

The Citrus Blossom is located at The Odyssey Pavilion. You can find it at number 5 on the map below.

Florida Fresh

Food:

  • 🆕Grilled Warm Lobster Tail – $11.25
  • 🆕Cubanito – $6.50
  • 🆕Florida Strawberry Shortcake – $5

Beverages:

  • Cucumber Watermelon Slushy (non-alcoholic) – $5
  • Cucumber Watermelon Slushy with Gin – $13

*NEW* Grilled Warm Lobster Tail – $11.25

with Key Lime Butter

A white rectangular plate with a grilled lobster tail.

Rank out of 7: 7

We were blown away by this. It’s fantastic. The thick serving of lobster is perfectly paired with the butter, which offers just enough hint of lime to make it unique. This is one of the best savory dishes we’ve ever had at an EPCOT festival.

*NEW* Cubanito – $6.50

with Mojo-Marinated Pork Belly, Ham, Swiss Cheese, Pickles, and Stone Ground Mustard Sauce

A white square plate with two halves of a Cubanito sandwich.

Rank out of 7: 7

The two new dishes here are both huge successes. This is the best Cuban sandwich we’ve had. Everything was balanced and fresh.

*NEW* Florida Strawberry Shortcake – $5

WDW EPCOT FGF2024 Florida Fresh Strawberry Shortcake

Rank out of 7: 5

This plant-based version of a strawberry shortcake is fresh and delicious. The cake is moist and not at all chewy. Don’t go out of your way to get it, but it’s a good option for the Garden Graze.

Cucumber Watermelon Slushy (non-alcoholic) – $5

A reporter holds up a small cup of Cucumber Watermelon Slushy, garnished with a small skewer of watermelon.

Rank out of 7: 3

There are a lot of cucumber-heavy drinks this year. Those who enjoy cucumber drinks may enjoy this, but our group wasn’t partial to any of the cucumber-forward options.

Cucumber Watermelon Slushy with Gin – $13

A small cup of the Cucumber Watermelon Slushy with Gin sits on a black metal table. Two pieces of watermelon are used as garnish.

Rank out of 7: 4

It has a strong cucumber flavor. It’s a little sharp but refreshing. The gin gives it a slight improvement over the non-alcoholic version.

Florida Fresh is located near Disney Traders. You can find it at number 27 on the map below.

Jardin de Fiestas

Food:

  • 🆕Flan de Guayaba – $6.50
  • 🆕Sope de Chilorio – $8.50
  • 🆕Tamale de Rajas – $8.75

Beverages:

  • 🆕Lychee Margarita – $14.50
  • 🆕Floral Margarita – $14
  • Craft Mexican Lager – $6 for 6 oz./$11 for 12 oz.

*NEW* Flan de Guayaba – $6.50

Vanilla Flan with Guava Coulis, Whipped Cream, and Fresh Fruit

A white square plate with flan, berries, and whipped cream.

Rank out of 7: 6

This is the best dish at Jardin de Fiestas. It’s a very good flan with perfect texture and it’s well complemented by the guava coulis.

*NEW* Sope de Chilorio – $8.50

Guajillo Pepper-Braised Pork on Fried Corn Shells with Black Beans, Shredded Cabbage, Crema Mexicana, Queso Fresco and Chives

A plate with a round corn shell overflowing with toppings.

Rank out of 7: 5

This is fairly similar to past dishes here and doesn’t offer anything exciting, but it’s a solid dish. The meat is excellent. The corn shell is unfortunately dry but has a good flavor.

*NEW* Tamale de Rajas – $8.75

Poblano Peppers, Corn, and Cheese in Masa topped with Poblano Cream Sauce, Crema Mexicana, Pickled Carrots, and Onions with Chives

A square plate with a tamal de rajas.

Rank out of 7: 3

It’s not disgusting, but the masa is overpowering. The other flavors hardly come through.

*NEW* Lychee Margarita – $14.50

Centinela Blanco Tequila, Lychee Liqueur, Citrus Juice and Agave Nectar

A clear plastic cup with a clear cocktail.

Rank out of 7: 1

This is terrible. It tastes medicinal.

*NEW* Floral Margarita – $14

Cherry Liqueur, Mezcal, Hibiscus Tea and Lime Juice

A red cocktail in a plastic souvenir cup featuring floral designs and the booth logo.

Rank out of 7: 3

The Floral Margarita is also medicinal-tasting, but it gets a slight boost from the fruit flavors. We still wouldn’t drink it again.

Jardin de Fiestas is located near the Mexico Pavilion. You can find it at number 8 on the map below.

Lotus House

Food:

  • Spicy Mala Chicken Skewer – $6.75
  • House-made Cheesy Crab Wontons – $8.25
  • Pan-fried Vegetable Dumplings – $5.50

Beverages:

  • 🆕Mango Bubble Tea (non-alcoholic) – $7.75
  • 🆕Dragon Dynasty – $14.50
  • 🆕Lucky Peach – $14.25
  • Brew Hub Honey Jasmine Lager Draft Beer – $5.50 for 6 oz./$9.75 for 12 oz.
  • Tropical Moon – $14

Spicy Mala Chicken Skewer – $6.75

with Creamy Peanut Sauce

A close-up of the Spicy Mala Chicken Skewer sitting in a carboard container. It is garnished with scallions and sesame seeds.

Rank out of 7: 4

The chicken was a little dry, but the sauce was spicy and sweet. This had a real spicy kick, and we liked it, but each bite had a different taste, giving it some inconsistency. Overall, it’s still a decent option.

House-made Cheesy Crab Wontons – $8.25

Three House-made Cheesy Crab Wontons sit in a cardboard container.

Rank out of 7: 4

The wontons are fine, but they didn’t have a lot of crab meat. You get two wontons for the price, and they’re pretty tasty, so if you’re in the mood for these, we wouldn’t discourage it.

Pan-fried Vegetable Dumplings – $5.50

Three Pan-fried Vegetable Dumplings sit in a cardboard container.

Rank out of 7: 1

While the presentation of this dish is pretty, that’s the only compliment we can give it. The top of a dumpling should be crunchy, but this was a rock. It was incredibly hard to cut through and resembled what we think chewing plastic is probably like. It’s vile and tough. The flavor isn’t good. This is probably one of the worst dishes we’ve had. If you’re looking for something similar, we recommend the spring rolls from the quick service in this pavilion.

*NEW* Mango Bubble Tea (non-alcoholic) – $7.75

A plastic cup with a yellow drink and dark boba at the bottom.

Rank out of 7: 3

The tea is refreshing if you’re looking for a nice, non-alcoholic drink, but the boba are flavorless.

*NEW* Dragon Dynasty – $14.50

Baijiu Spirit, Light Rum, Dragon Fruit, Piña Colada Mix and Soda Water

A clear plastic cup with a light pink cocktail.

Rank out of 7: 5

The tropical notes are great, with the piña colada mix adding a note that tastes a little like suntan lotion smells, but not in a bad way.

*NEW* Lucky Peach – $14.25

Peach Whiskey, Oolong Tea, Honey, Lemon Juice and Soda Water

A clear plastic cup with a honey-colored cocktail.

Rank out of 7: 3

This was our least favorite drink at Lotus House. It’s fine, it’s drinkable, but it’s boring and a little sticky.

Tropical Moon – $14

Vodka, Triple Sec, Passion Fruit, Soda Water, and White Boba Pearls

A reporter holds up a clear plastic cup with a bright yellow cocktail.

Rank out of 7: 5

Due to the color, it may be difficult to see, but there are boba pearls in this drink, mostly hiding at the bottom. While we enjoyed the cocktail, which had a zesty, citrusy taste, we could’ve done without the boba pearls. We found they had a weird, Jello-like texture. However, if you sip around those, this drink is great.

Lotus House is located at the China Pavilion. You can find it at number 9 on the map below.

Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market

Beverages:

  • Bitburger Premium Pils, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany – $5.75 for 6 oz./$9.75 for 12 oz.
  • Stiegl Brewery Radler Raspberry, Salzburg, Austria – $5.75 for 6 oz./$9.75 for 12 oz.
  • Flensburger Dunkel, Flensburg, Germany – $5.75 for 6 oz./$9.75 for 12 oz.
  • Apfelschaumwein – $10.50

Potato Pancakes – $5.25

with House-Made Apple Sauce

A close-up of a potato pancake with a dollop of apple sauce on top, served in a carboard container.

Rank out of 7: 4

You can taste the onions, the hash brown flavor of the potato, and the applesauce. It’s a very simple dish, but delivers what it promises. However, with so many options, we’d probably recommend other dishes, since this one isn’t terribly special.

Toasted Pretzel Bread – $6

topped with Black Forest Ham and Melted Gruyère Cheese

A piece of toasted pretzel bread sits on a white plate, covered in cheese.

Rank out of 7: 7

We don’t even know the proper words to describe how unexpectedly amazing this dish was. The pretzel bread was filled with gooey cheese and black forest ham that oozed out when we cut into it. All of the flavors mix wonderfully together, making one of the best items we’ve ever had at Flower & Garden since they started Outdoor Kitchens.

Warm Cheese Strudel – $4.75

with Mixed Berries

A cheese strudel sits on a white plate, covered with a mixed berry jam.

Rank out of 7: 6

The strudel was a perfect combination of fruit, cheese, and flaky crust. Everything came out warm, making for a very good dessert.

Apfelschaumwein – $10.50

Sparkling Wine and Apple Liqueur

A plastic champagne flute sits on a metal black table, filled with a light yellow liquid.

Rank out of 7: 5

This was similar to ice wine, but it would have been better if it had been colder. The fresh rosemary sprig gave it a nice herbal flavor, helping cut down the overwhelming sweetness of the spiced apple taste. This is a unique drink that you can’t easily get, so we recommend trying it at least once.

Bauernmarkt is located at the Germany Pavilion. You can find it at number 11 on the map below.

*NEW* Arrabbiata – $9.25

Pennette Pasta, Spicy Tomato Sauce, and Buttery Shrimp

A cardboard dish filled with pasta, shrimp, and sauce.

Rank out of 7: 5

This was a pleasant surprise. The pasta was a little al dente for our preferences, but not as bad as the dishes here usually are. The shrimp weren’t too fishy, and the sauce was decently spiced.

*NEW* Bocconcini – $7.50

Mozzarella Bocconcini, Grape Tomatoes, and Pesto Sauce

Vegetables and pesto served in a plastic cup resembling a terracotta planter.

Rank out of 7: 4

This is a supermarket-quality salad. It’s neither bad nor good. The presentation is cute but not enough so to be a must-have.

*NEW* Chocolate Cannoli – $5.75

Chocolate-Covered Cannoli Shell with Peanut Butter-Ricotta Filling

A white paper dish with a chocolate cannoli.
A cross-section of the cannoli with chocolate smeared around the dish.

Rank out of 7: 2

This was so close to being good. The chocolate was tasty, and the peanut butter ricotta filling was amazing. However, the cannoli shell is inedible. It has the taste and texture of chalk.

*NEW* Quattro Formaggi – $6.75

Pennette Pasta and Four-Cheese Sauce

A cardboard dish filled with pasta and cheese sauce.

Rank out of 7: 3

This looks like something you’d find in a college cafeteria, but it wasn’t as gross as it seemed. Still, you could microwave a freezer meal at home for the same quality.

Red Italian Sangria – $12

A reporter's hand holds a small plastic cup of bright red sangria.

Rank out of 7: 2

Have you ever put red wine in the microwave? That’s what this is. We thought sangria came with ice and fruit, but this was just a room-temperature liquid. The flavor was fruity, so it could have been really good, but as it got hotter, it was just too warm to drink.

White Italian Sangria – $12

A plastic cup of bright yellow sangria sits on a fence overlooking World Showcase Lagoon.

Rank out of 7: 2

Usually, when a Sangria beverage of this price contains more juice than wine, we would complain. However, since the wine in this drink tasted particularly cheap and unpleasant, it was somewhat of a relief. The drink was supposed to contain Prosecco, however, this was unidentifiable from the lack of fizz in the drink.

Italian Margarita with Limoncello and Tequila – $12

A reporter's hand holds a plastic cup of a pale yellow margarita.

Rank out of 7: 4

The margarita was quite good as it tasted almost like a melting lemon ice dessert. However, there didn’t seem to be much liquor in the drink, as we didn’t taste much besides the faint hint of tequila. Overall, this is a tasty drink, but don’t expect to get much alcohol for your money here.

Bananas Foster Bread Pudding – $4.75

Rank out of 7: 4

This reminded us of the monkey bread from River Belle Terrace in Disneyland. It tastes like a bread pudding with some banana flavoring. The parts soaked with caramel sauce are great. We were sad as we dug more to find the inside of the cake on the dry side, putting this item firmly in the “mediocre” category.

Muffuletta Panini – $6.25

with Ham, Salami, Mortadella, Provolone, and Swiss with Olive Salad

Rank out of 7: 5

This just tastes like a mortadella sandwich, exactly what we were expecting. The olives give it a kick of flavor. The bread is crispy and looks burnt, but has a perfect consistency. It is very spicy. It’s overall a good sandwich.

Spicy Chicken Gumbo – $6.25

with Andouille Sausage and Long Grain and Wild Rice

A white bowl holding a serving of Spicy Chicken Gumbo, garnished with scallion.

Rank out of 7: 7

Don’t let the appearance fool you. This is probably one of the better dishes, if not the best one, at the festival. There was definitely a kick of spice in the right places. The roux was nice and dark, which is common in more authentic gumbos because that means it’s been cooked down longer. It was hearty, with decent portions of chicken and gumbo. We loved this.

Bayou Cocktail – $10.25

Spiced Rum, Coconut Rum, Fruit Punch and Orange Juice

A clear cup holding a red-orange cocktail, garnished with an orange wheel and two blueberries.

Rank out of 7: 5

This was a basic concoction, but we enjoyed it. It was nicely balanced between the two rums, fruit juice, and orange juice. Tropical and delicious, it tasted like Mardi Gras to us. As far as premixed cocktails are concerned, this is one of the better options at the festival. Grab one of these, sit back, and let the good times roll!

We thought this was nicely flavored for summer, and the sauce was very good. The yuzu comes through just enough. However, it’s overpriced for what you get.

The popular Frushi returns with a dish that’s just as pleasant as the previous years. Not only does Frushi taste great, but it looks good too. The sweet rice wrapped around the different fruits makes for a crisp and refreshing snack.

*NEW* Watermelon-Strawberry Lemonade (non-alcoholic) – $6.75

A clear plastic cup with a cloudy red drink.

The Sake makes this a little better, but the bar was so low in the first place. We don’t recommend this either.

If you’re a spicy food lover, we recommend trying this kebab. The lamb is tender, and absolutely packed with spice. The small chickpea salad on the side helps cut the heat a bit, and we found it to be the perfect balance.

Grilled Kebabs with Chermoula Chicken – $6.25

with Carrot-Chickpea Salad and Garlic Aïoli

A small paper boat bowl with a chicken kebab, drizzled with white aioli.

Rank out of 7: 5

The chicken is thigh meat, and it’s tender and seasoned well. The salad it sits upon is raisin, chickpea, and shredded carrots, topped with garlic aioli. We found the salad is the perfect complement, adding a bit of sweetness to the dish. Both options are great, though we prefer the chicken just a bit more.

*NEW* Mediterranean Flatbread – $6

with Chermoula, Roasted Vegetables, Artichoke, Olives and Feta Cheese

Triangular flatbread on a too-small plate.

Rank out of 7: 6

The flatbread crust has a nice, charred edge with a soft interior, but the real standout is the toppings. They’re fresh and earthy, each balancing the other for a fantastic combination. This is one of Walt Disney World’s best fast food pizzas.

Orange Blossom-Saffron Cake – $5

A reporter's hand holds up the Orange Blossom-Saffron Cake on a white plate, surrounded with red drizzle.

Rank out of 7: 6

This one’s interesting because it has an outer shell. It has an unusual flavor, but we liked it. The outside coating tastes like white chocolate, while the inside tastes like vanilla custard. The saffron base does overwhelm your taste buds a bit, but we’re not complaining. Meanwhile, the cake is fantastic; it’s incredibly fresh. We enjoyed this, and due to its very large serving size, we recommend grabbing one and sharing it with your friends.

Pomegranate Mimosa – $11.50

A clear champagne flute filled with dark red liquid.

Rank out of 7: 5

We enjoyed this. It’s mostly champagne with aromatics of pomegranate at the end. We found the seeds in our drink were stuck to the bottom, but we got them after tapping the bottom a bit. The champagne flavor is more prominent than the juice, but, it’s another pleasant drink option.

They knocked it out of the park with this. It’s amazing. The Impossible meat has a great texture, excellent spice, and it’s plentiful. The pastry is crisp and the sauce completes the dish with just a touch of sweetness.

Coconut Tres Leches – $5

Vanilla Cake soaked with Oat, Almond, and Coconut Milks with Toasted Coconut

A slice of Coconut Tres Leches, served in a plastic black container on a white plate.

The flavor on the front is strong, and the cake is very moist. It’s a little one-note, very coconut-heavy. It’s not overwhelming. They’ve improved this dish, as in past reviews, we did not care for it and gave it the equivalent of a 3.

Tropical Slush – $4.50

Lemonade, Grapefruit and Simple Syrup

A reporter's hand holds a clear cup of light orange liquid, garnished with a lime wedge.

Rank out of 7: 5

This is both incredibly tart and very sweet. The drink starts off frozen, which is good for the current Florida heat, but quickly turns completely liquid. This is a solid, refreshing non-alcoholic drink for the spring and summer weather.

Tropical Breeze with Don Q Limón Rum – $11.50

A reporter's hand holds up a clear cup of light orange liquid. A lime wedge floats inside.

Rank out of 7: 6

You can really taste the rum in this, which isn’t always common. The rum definitely changes the flavor profile of the drink, and cuts the lemonade a lot more than the non-alcoholic version, making the grapefruit taste more prevalent. We prefer this version.

This isn’t bad for theme park counter service duck, and the orange flavor comes through in the right amount. Overall, it’s more like a Thanksgiving dinner, and just not something we want to eat in the Florida summer.

The pastry is soft and doughy, and the cream inside is rich and sweet. The caramelized sugar adds a nice, sweet finish, making for a pleasant snack that can be shared. This is a good crème-filled doughnut, but if you want a real French pastry, just go into the pavilion for Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie.

Croissant au Fromage de Chèvre, Herbes et ail Rôtie – $6.95

This is exactly what it looks like, a croissant with cheese on top. Really, it’s nothing special. Ours tasted like it had been out a bit, and was starting to go stale. We’d label this as “just okay” and recommend purchasing other items from this booth.

La Vie en Rose Frozen Slush – $14.50

A light pink slush sits in a plastic martini glass.

Rank out of 7: 5

France once again brings an alcoholic slushy to the festival, and this time it’s a very floral and fruity vodka concoction. It actually smells like a rose! We found the St. Germain Liqueur doesn’t overpower the cranberry and orange flavors, which makes for a well-balanced cocktail.

Beef Tenderloin Tips – $7.25

Rank out of 7: 4

Unfortunately, our two pieces of beef were overcooked and chewy, leaving a lot to be desired. The carrots and whipped potatoes were great, but they weren’t enough to save this dish. However, we do believe there’s a lot of potential here if you happen to receive well-cooked meat.

Seared Scallops – $7.75

Disney has scallops down to an art, which is surprising because they can be difficult to cook correctly. These were done perfectly, smooth and buttery, with just a slight bit of crunch from the bacon exterior. The green beans were also well done, and the brown butter vinaigrette tied the whole dish together.

Chocolate Maple Whisky Cake – $4.50

A reporter's hand holds up a white cardboard plate of chocolate cake covered in more chocolate and chocolate shavings, with maple drizzle.

Rank out of 7: 4

A lot is happening here, so we’ll do our best to break it down. To start, the chocolate on top reminds us of a Krispy Kreme donut. Moving on to the cake, it’s incredibly dense and has a caramel flavoring, confusing us as that isn’t an ingredient listed. The cake was also a bit dry, leaving us wishing that ice cream was served as a side. The maple cream on top does a bit to help cut the dryness, but there isn’t enough for it to be effective.

We did end up getting some of the whiskey flavor on the back end, though, which was a positive for us. Overall, this isn’t the best dessert at the festival, but it also isn’t the worst.

Chocolate fans will enjoy this, but it’s nothing special. The chocolate soil gives a nice crunch, but it’s basically a fancy version of pudding dirt cups. Previous versions of this dish have been served, but unlike those, this one is not vegan.

Impossible Farmhouse Meatball – $6

A reporter's hand holds a carboard dish containing an Impossible meatball wrapped with other vegetables.

There’s a lot of good seasoning in here, and it has a texture close to a meatball. The spice comes through as a slow burn on the back end. The lentil wrap is so good. We’ll have this again.

Soy-Glazed Sticky Ribs – $7

with Green Onions and Peanuts

A white cardboard plate holds two ribs, covered in various garnishes.

Rank out of 7: 4

The meat was tender, and the barbecue flavor was very prominent. Our particular pieces didn’t have a ton of meat on them, but it’s difficult for ribs to be consistent. We were, however, a bit let down at the size of them, considering you only receive two.

This reminds us of a hush puppy, except that it’s supposed to be chicken and waffles. Our chicken was very bland and looked grey inside. The honey sauce was great, being both sweet and spicy, but that was the only good part of this dish. We recommend skipping this one.

Spicy Hot Dog – $8

Rank out of 7: 6

Perhaps one of our (definitely Tom’s) favorite returning items is the spicy hot dog. You receive a full hot dog for your money, slathered in pineapple chutney and crumbled plantain chips. The hot dog delivers on flavor and spice. Each bite has a pop against the perfectly cooked exterior leading to a wonderfully spicy interior.

The chutney adds a cool pineapple flavor, and the chips add a nice crunch. It’s a filling dish and best shared if you plan on enjoying the rest the festival has to offer.

Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade (non-alcoholic) – $4.75

An etched plastic cup holds a purple slush garnished with a violet.

A slush so iconic they had to make Minnie ears to match them. We can proudly say that the admiration is much deserved. The Violet Lemonade slush is sweet, refreshing, and takes a nice picture.

DOLE Whip with Fanta (non-alcoholic) – $6.75

An etched plastic cup filled with swirling DOLE whip.

Rank out of 7: 4

Pineapple Fanta fills the bottom of this cup. The pineapple Dole Whip mixed with the soda works very well and surprisingly isn’t overpowering. The only problem you’re going to run into with Flower & Garden is A) the portion of Dole Whip and B) how icy it comes out, to the point of almost being flavorless.

Typically, the version at Magic Kingdom is very light and airy, this comes out stiff and dense. It’s still the only place to get the soft serve in EPCOT, so if you feel the price is worth saving a trip to Polynesian Village or Magic Kingdom, then this is recommended.

DOLE Whip topped with Sōmrus Mango Cream Liqueur – $12.50

This was quite refreshing. We felt it tasted a bit too much like Dole Whip, meaning there wasn’t probably a ton of Mango Cream Liqueur mixed into the soft serve, which was disappointing.

The liege waffle is always great, but the presence of the Orange Bird adds a nice springtime touch and ties it in with the festival. (Plus, we can’t resist anything with the Orange Bird on it.)

The sugar and the icing add a balanced sweetness, complemented by the orange flavoring. It’s the perfect amount of citrus — not overpowering, and not too subtle. The Orange Bird medallion is made of chocolate, though easily removable if you choose to save it in the plastic wrap for later. Overall, this is a winner.

This doesn’t work. Strawberry and basil may pair well in other dishes, but not here.

This, however, is excellent. The granulated honey and mascarpone make it a little gritty, but it’s so rich and pairs well with the compote.

*NEW* Strawberry Basil Sorbet with Hard Seltzer – $12.50

A reporter's hand holds up a glass filled with pink hard seltzer and pink sorbet.

Rank out of 7: 4

The sorbet still isn’t good, but it’s boosted here by the excellent Quirk Strawberry Banana Whip Hard Seltzer.

Canadian Club Whiskey with Lemon, Peach Purée, and Ginger

A clear cup filled with amber liquid.

Rank out of 7: 1

This is a decent serving for the price, but unfortunately, that’s its only redeeming factor. It’s intensely syrupy to the point of spoiling any of the flavors within.

The Canada Popcorn Cart is located at the Canada Pavilion.

Fords Gin with Lemon and Blackcurrant-Cucumber Syrup garnished with Cucumber

A clear cup filled with red slush, and garnished with cucumber.

Rank out of 7: 4

If you like cucumber drinks, you’ll probably find this refreshing, albeit syrupy. But you’ll need to really, really love cucumber.
