Just because you don’t think it is good, it doesn’t mean the rest of the visiting majority agrees with your opinion. But I guess that’s the beauty of numbers... Everyone is entitled to their own opini

EPCOT is about one thing: making money for Disney. Does Guardians make money? *Glances at box office returns* Why, yes. Yes it does. Case closed.

I think “terrible” is a matter of perspective. Also understand that the person you’re debating this with has a long-proven admiration of Epcot in its classic form... Just look up Epcot’s 25th annivers

Amazing.

 

I am most curious about those hummus fries and what they taste like. Do they make them out of a flavored hummus like red pepper, chipotle or garlic? Or is it just regular hummus with the extra flavor added in the exterior sauce?

 

Kudos for F&W to come up with such a unique culinary experience!

To me they taste like Falafel. They're awesome and seem to be one of the more 'talked about' items this year.

^ Ahhhh...I never even made that connection as I have only had falafel once, although it makes sense with the chick peas and all.

 

The thing that I like is that Morocco incorporated something off the wall like that and added a Greek flair to it to create something that no one is probably offering anywhere else - bravo, Disney/Epcot!!

Awesome Report. I'll skip all the food and drink my butt off around the World. Some of those selections on drinks looked intriguing. Have you guys ever "Drank Around the World" and tried every drink?

I had a buddy try it once, we lost him and like an hour later found him napping in some bushes backstage in Morocco. Some guys just can't handle Epcot.

Here are my tips for successfully drinking your way around the world at Epcot (while actually remembering it)...

 

* Do it during the Food & Wine or the Spring Flower & Garden Festival. The country food stalls have smaller drink samples so you can still technically drink your way around the world while still managing to be a respectable park guest.

 

* Do not skip the food. Not only is it amazing, but it helps absorb some of the alcohol.

 

* Try not to just drink beer. Even with smaller portions, you will get full quickly. Take some time for a tequila shot in Mexico, Sambuca in Italy or the weird tasting effed up liquor that they were serving in Norway.

 

* Space it out. We got there around noon, went in and hit the first four countries on the right, went back and did some of the attractions in the front of the park, went back for a few more countries, back to the front of the park and so forth.

 

* Have a water every now and again if it's hot out!

 

* Captain Obvious says to make sure that no matter what...you have a DD or are staying onsite!

 

Have fun and make sure to take photos and post a report!

The final gulp of beer at the end of Illumigaytions to complete my quest to drink my way around the world!

Here is that crazy Scandinavian liquor.

Michael wasn't a fan. At all. LMAO!

It was a bit perplexing in taste, but reminded me a bit of moonshine.

When in Mexico, you have to go with the pure agave tequila shooter!

It's common in Norway to have a shot of this together with the Christmas dinner (along with wine, beer and whatever the kids are drinking). And for the record I'm not a fan either... at all! LOL! I usually take a small shot though for the social part, but I have yet to experience one I like.

 

By the way, do they still serve Carlsberg beer in Norway? First of all it's Danish and not Norwegian, but most important it would improve our pavilion tremendously if they actually started serving some decent beer...

For the record, at least I went there on my own accord

^^ That's funny that you didn't like it because that was Michael's reaction after I took the photo, "How can Scandinavian's drink that sh%t - that's horrible!"

 

Of course, I'm sitting there dying laughing while he was about ready to throw up!

^ I'll remind myself to keep this in reserve, and offer it to him, if me and David have one of our classic theme park arguments.

 

(If and when we ever make it to the EPCOT Wine & Food Festival. Yum!)

Want amazing drinks? The "adult beverage" offerings in Italy at Epcot are just fantastic! That frozen Margarita... OMG! And you can get that one at the Food & Wine Italy booth!

That's all for this visit! Until next time.... Be sure to check out our "Food & Wine in Two Minutes" video below...

How is the park holding up after the storm? Any damage?

Haven't been down yet, but based on my stroll around Disney Springs last night, I doubt it. Honestly, the storm wasn't even as bad as some of our daily Orlando storms in this area.

Straight line distance we're less than 10 miles from the parks. I cleaned up 1/2 a bag of leaves and small twigs from our property. I drove around a lot today (KT had a party to attend and we went out to lunch) and didn't see anything significant from Touristy Orlando up to Winter Garden. We even have this large dead oak branch that I was hoping would fall down and it didn't!
