0

Between the new nighttime spectacular, “Epcot Forever,” the opening of Walt Disney Imagineering Presents the Epcot Experience, the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, and all of the new dining experiences and attractions coming to Epcot, it’s an exciting time to be eating your way around World Showcase! On this Epcot edition of Disney Parks Foodie News, I have a few announcements and some new menu items to share with you.

First up, there have been a couple new openings this month as part of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. Just head on over to Future World East near Test Track to try out The Donut Box and Cool Wash. At The Donut Box you’ll find Sweet Corn Fritters with Fresno and red pepper jelly as well as Strawberry-dusted Yeast Donut Holes. On the beverage menu here are several sweet sips including a Strawberry Smoothie (garnished with a donut hole) and, for guests over the age of 21, a Black and White Coffee Cocktail garnished with a fresh yeast donut with chocolate espresso bean crumbles, plus a Central 28 Beer Company Boston Cream Donut Ale.

Build-Your-Own Slushies and Souvenir Cup from Cool Wash at Epcot

Right next door, Cool Wash has reopened with an array of fun slushies! You can now have an interactive experience by creating your own custom slushy blend from six frozen carbonated beverages. Choose from Coke, Fanta Cherry, Fanta Orange, Fanta Banana, Fanta Watermelon and Blue Raspberry – all frozen! In addition, you can even choose to top your slushy with candy pebbles, popping pearls, jelly drops, or popping candy. Those over 21 can also enjoy a Coca-Cola Orange Vanilla with gin in a souvenir cup.

Both The Donut Box and Cool Wash will be open through the remainder of the festival, which runs through Nov. 23, 2019. For more info on all of the marketplaces and menus this year, check out my Foodie Guide!

Chef Louis’ Lobster Seafood Boil from Coral Reef Restaurant at Epcot

Also located in Future World, Coral Reef Restaurant will be offering a commemorative menu to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Disney’s animated classic, “The Little Mermaid.” With menu items like the Dinglehopper Shrimp Cocktail, Chef Louis’ Lobster Seafood Boil, and King Triton’s Key Lime Tart, this is a menu you’ll definitely want to dive right into! When you dine here, you’ll also be able to take home a beautiful commemorative menu (only available while supplies last). This limited-time menu will be available starting Oct. 19. To make reservations, visit the Walt Disney World Resort website or check out the My Disney Experience mobile app.

New Gelato Kiosk Coming to Italy Pavilion at Epcot

Finally, a new kiosk is coming to the Italy pavilion in World Showcase. This new location will replace the current gelato cart and will be operated by Patina Restaurant Group. The kiosk will be scooping up 12 different varieties of gelato and sorbet, including gluten-friendly and plant-based flavors. Its seasonally updated menu will also use locally sourced fruits. Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for more details to be announced soon!
