Last week, I was invited to Disney’s Food and Wine Festival at Epcot. Thank you to Disney Parks and Walt Disney World for hosting me at this media preview. I was so excited to be able to try some of my favorite returning dishes as well as sample some new ones including the infamous Pickle Milkshake. If this is your first time hearing about the Pickle Milkshake, you are in for a surprise!

Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival runs from July 27 till November 18th for those who have never heard of this festival before. Throughout the festival, you can enjoy a variety of food and beverage carts and attend the Eat to the Beat concert lineup. If you’re wondering which ones I’ll be attending, you can find me there on September 29 & 30th for Boyz II Men 😂

Flavors From Fire

The first stop on my Food & Wine tour was at the Flavors from Fire booth located by World Discovery (close to Test Track!). Here, I tried the Chimichurri Marinated Skirt Steak Taco. This is one of the many new dishes that can be found around the world. I thought the steak was juicy and very flavorful!

The Fry Basket

This next booth can also be found at World Discovery near Test Track. This was one of my favorite booths because I personally love fries. If you have to pick one of the top five dishes I tried, these Pickle Fries would make the list. I also really liked the Fry Flight because I was able to try some new flavors. The Fry Flight includes Sea Salt & Malt Vinegar, BBQ Bacon Fries, and Sweet Potato Casserole Fries.

Brew-Wing Lab at The Odyssey

This is a new addition to the Food and Wine Festival and here, your favorite Muppet friends are cooking up some crazy concoctions. Here you can find the Pickle Milkshake that has probably been all over your FYP. While only two things are pictured below, I also tried the Impossible Buffalo Chicken Tenders ($7.50) and the Unnecessarily Spicy, Yet Extremely Tasty Scotch Bonnet Pepper-Curry Wings ($7.50). In my opinion, I didn’t think the wings were that spicy but my friend thought differently 😂 If you need something refreshing to sip, I really enjoyed the Frozen Fusion drink.

Now, what you’ve all been waiting for, is the Pickle Milkshake. Personally, this was not one of my personal favorites. My friends were all divided on their thoughts of this milkshake, some said it tasted more like dill than straight out-of-the-jar pickles. Would you be brave enough to try this?

Mexico

My first stop at the World Showcase was in Mexico. I love anything with beef so I knew I had to try the Taco de Costilla. While the flavors were good, this wasn’t one of the top dishes I tried at the Food and Wine Festival. Because I was saving room for more booths, this was the only item I tried here but I definitely need to go back!

India

My next stop was in India (located between China and Germany). This booth is a popup that is only open during Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival. Here I sampled the Potato and Pea Samosa, Chicken Tikka Masala, and Mango Lassi. Everything was full of flavor and I’d probably order the Mango Lassi again.

Brazil

My second to last stop was at the Brazil booth located between Morocco and France. I tried the Feijoada which had a lot of flavor. I really liked the Pork Belly and thought it paired nicely with the pesto!

Canada

This was my last stop of the day and one of my favorite dishes. This is a returning dish so I’ve tried this before in the past and have always loved it. if you’re also a beef lover then this Canadian Filet Mignon will also be one of your favorites!

Canadian Filet Mignon served with Mushrooms, Boursin Black Truffle & Sea Salt Mashed Potatoes, and Boursin Black Truffle & Sea Slat Whipped Butter $9.75

I ran out of room so there were lots of booths I skipped but I’m aiming to try new dishes with my next visit. If you’re attending Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival, let me know what you’ve tried and what I should try next!
