Part of the reason is Epcot World Showcase, with its 11 pavilions representing different countries and cultural traditions. Part of the reason is the diversity of Epcot restaurants and general quality of the meals served at the theme park. And part of the reason is the availability, and variety, of Epcot’s alcoholic drinks.
There are numerous places to enjoy a tasty adult beverage throughout the theme park, especially at Epcot World Showcase. Among the many “Drink Around the World” (DATW) options at Epcot are several drinking spots where the location is as important to the experience as the beverage itself.
What follows a personal list of just some of Epcot’s popular drinking spots, listed clockwise around Epcot World Showcase when visiting from the park’s main entrance. For more information and photos, see the attached list.
- La Cava del Tequila in Mexico specializes in tequila, tequila flights and margaritas.
- Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar in Italy offers more than 200 options to delight Italian wine lovers but also offers a wide range of cocktails and liqueurs, beer and coffee.
- Mitsukoshi sake bar in Japan offers the opportunity to sample different sakes in an environment that is part educational experience, part shopping display.
- Rose & Crown Pub in United Kingdom is the drinking spot for Anglophiles who appreciate a full bar, including good beer and whiskey, and Disney entertainment.
Of course, this is a short list of options at Epcot. For a quick drink, guests can enjoy outdoor kiosks around World Showcase that serve beer, wine and/or cocktails. The quick-service, casual restaurants will also offer a limited drink menu representative of their countries, while table-service restaurants tend to have extensive menus with wine, beer and specialty cocktails.
