How To Drink Around the World at EPCOT

This has been a hot topic in the email requests, so it’s time to dive into one of the most popular activities at Walt Disney World….Drinking!

EPCOT is a theme park that has Soarin’ Around the World, Mission: Space and Frozen Ever After just to name a few highlights, but it’s also home to an experience that will introduce participants to all of the pavilions of the World Showcase.

First off, it’s important for me to explain that this is not an official experience nor is it exclusively endorsed by Walt Disney World.

Secondly, there are four different ways to “…around the world”

  1. Drinking Around the World (Beer)
  2. Drinking Around the World (Specialty Drinks)
  3. Drinking Around the World (Non-Alcoholic)
  4. Eating Around the World (sponsored by Tums lol!)

The Tips

  • Each Country has an Alcoholic Drink, Non-Alcoholic Drink, Snack and Meal
  • Bring a water bottle with you. You should be drinking equal water to alcohol.
  • Go with a friend – when you order one drink per country and share, it’s a better deal!
  • Don’t be afraid to take your time! This isn’t a sprint…it’s a marathon!

We’ll start out with the Beer experience

The Drinks

Keep in mind that I’m just providing a single option, but there are always regional and specialty options that may flex in and out of the lineup.
Canada – A Moosehead Beer
United Kingdom – A Bass Ale OR Innis & Gunn
France – Kronenbourg 1664
Morocco – Casa or Mythos
Japan – Ginga Kogen or Kirin
The American Adventure – Bell’s Oberon Ale
Italy – Birra Moretti
Germany -Schöfferhofer Pink Grapefruit Hefeweizen
China – Tsing Tao Beer
Norway – Einstök Icelandic White Ale
Mexico – Dos Equis Lager

Beer is incredibly easy to get around the World Showcase, as most of the countries have an outdoor vending cart that will save you from wandering through the pavilion. That being said, beer is so much better when you’re exploring in air conditioning!

More Fun Around the World

Food and Non-Alcoholic Drinks are so subjective that it’s less about the variety and more about what you’re in the mood for. When we were doing research for this article, it was evident that each pavilion has a selection of food, including pre-packaged snacks, popcorn, pretzels and everything in between.

I was tempted to share my ideas, but as there are many dietary restrictions, my only recommendation is to ask the cast members who work in the pavilion…because they’ll be a great source of insider info!

With the ever-changing food & drink landscape within EPCOT, especially around the World Showcase – be on the lookout for new and exciting blends and special event booths. You never know what will match your palette until you try it!
