10 Things We Love About Dining In World Showcase

10. Easy Access to Restaurants from Epcot Resorts.

Epcot resorts are an awesome option for relaxation at Walt Disney World. One of my favorite perks of staying at an Epcot resort is the easy access it provides to World Showcase Dining. Nothing beats the quick walk over to Epcot in the evening knowing that a delicious meal awaits you at a Disney restaurant.

9. Delicious and Convenient Walk Up Dining Options Are Available.

Guests that have no secured advanced dining reservations need not worry about their dining options. There is a plethora of tasty walk up options in each country around World Showcase. Each country’s walk up option does feature native food so guests can sample smaller portions of food from around the globe of they would prefer to eat their way around the world instead of commit to a sit down meal at one restaurant.

8. Fun Activities Nearby While You Wait To Be Seated.

If you do find yourself waiting for your dining reservation there are plenty of entertainment options nearby in World Showcase. Street performers can be found in countries around World Showcase. Enjoying a Beetles cover band, Chinese acrobats or an Italian Play Troupe while waiting on your reservation will make the time fly by and keep you laughing and entertained as you wait. For guests expecting a longer wait time, dropping into one of the films available around World Showcase or enjoying a native drink form one of the walk up stands is a great way to unwind before a meal.

7. Incredible Culinary Options In Each Country Represented.

Some of the most sought after Disney restaurants are in Epcot. If you are looking for savory authentic cuisine from around the world look no farther than Epcot World Showcase dining. The incredible variety and quality of the food in World Showcase restaurants is unsurpassed. Bonus- you do not even need to renew your passport to explore new foods.

6. Loads Of Variety Is Available Around World Showcase.

Dishes that range from light and fun food to culinary staples are available for guests to enjoy. Sampling candy and sodas from around the globe is a fun and budget friendly way to explore new food without booking a meal at each country around World Showcase. Building a meal around the globe by purchasing tasting options from walk up dining around the globe is a fun activity as well. Start with an appetizer of nachos in Mexico eating your way around countries until you are finishing the evening with French pastries, and an Irish Coffee from Rose and Crown in Great Britain.

5. World Showcase Dining Can Be Enjoyed As A Part Of Show Packages.

World Showcase dining packages are available for the Candlelight Processional package. A perfect Walt Disney World evening for me involves enjoying a delicious prefix menu at a World Showcase restaurant before enjoying the incredible Candlelight Processional at Christmas time.

4. Excellent Wine and Dessert Pairings Can Be Found In World Showcase Restaurants.

Exploring dining options is easy around World Showcase. Cast members are ready and willing to explain dishes on the menu and suggest food, drink and dessert pairings for each meal. Guests need not be afraid to ask for suggestions or explanations as they experience new cuisine for the first time.

3. Illuminations Can Be Viewed From Several Restaurants Around World Showcase.

Illuminations (or at least the fireworks sector of the show) can be viewed from a few restaurants around World Showcase. Rose and Crown, Chef’s De France and La Hacienda de San Angel all have portions of the restaurant that overlook the World Showcase Lagoon where illuminations take place. While a view of this nighttime show is not guaranteed at any of these restaurants it is a nice bonus to arrive at a late dinner to find you will be able to enjoy the fireworks from your table.

2. You Will Experience An Ambiance Overload In World Showcase Restaurants.

One of my favorite parts of dining in World Showcase is the incredible ambiance of the restaurants. The architecture, art, music and theming of each restaurant is incredibly accurate giving guests the feeling that they are actually dining in another country. Dining in Mexico transports guests to a Mexican village near ancient Aztec temples while Chefs De France gives guests the feeling they are enjoying a café in Paris. Dining around World Showcase is so much more than just a meal, it truly is an experience.

1. You Need Not Leave The Park To Enjoy A Top Notch Dining Experience.

With such excellent fine dining options in Epcot guests need not park hop to reach a delicious dinner after a day of playing in the park. Guests looking to purchase a one day park ticket to Epcot can end their day with a snazzy dinner after they have ride, show and film hopped around Future World and World Showcase all day long.
