Our reporter doesn’t usually like Swiss but said this cheese is very mild. It’s served incredibly hot. The ham is both sweet and very smoky. The potatoes don’t add much, but the cornichons give a nice balance to the heavier flavors of the cheese and ham. The baguette was acceptably fresh, but the outside crust was slightly tougher than expected. The inside was soft enough to absorb the flavors of the dish. Overall, it’s a pretty good dish for the price, though it is heavy and slightly greasy given the cheese-centric nature, so order with caution depending on where you are in your day.

We loved this! It’s an actual block of cheese that they’re melting and then scraping off onto the plate, and unlike many dishes at the festival, this one has a good bread to cheese ratio.

Blueberry and Almond Frangipane Tart with Crème Fraîche – $4.50

The cream is real, hand-whipped cream, not from a can. It’s very moist inside, and very delightful. The almonds add a nice crunch to the whole thing. Basically everything from here is great.

*NEW* Huber Vision Grüner Veltliner, Austria ($15/bottle) – $5.00

Weingut Markus Huber says this wine has “delicate fresh green apple fruity aromas; displaying flavors of lemon; lime and peaches; solid fruit core; rich in finesse; with a beautiful length and mineral tones.”

Cave De La Côte Rosé Gamay, Romand ($12/bottle) – $7.00

According to Cave De La Côte, the Rosé Gamay has “an aroma of red fruit notes (red cherry, raspberry),” and that “this lively, fruity wine is rounded and balanced.”

We were pleasantly surprised by this wine. It’s a light, dry, easy-drinking rosé. Cheers!

René Favre Dôle, Chamoson ($30/bottle) – $7.00

According to Mission Wine & Spirits, the Dôle is “a generous, robust wine that nicely combines terroir and a rustic character along with the fruitiness of red and blackberries.”

Finally, a wine served at the proper temperature! This was very nice and paired well with the food options at this Marketplace. Kudos to the sommelier.

Frozen Rosé – $9.00

This is the best “frosé” in EPCOT. But remember, it is Walt Disney World, so it’s not going to blow your mind. It’s a very nice, light yet enjoyable frosé. Cheers!
