Wink EPCOT - What are the Best Snacks, CS and TS meals

I love to cook and with all the restaurants, I believe that food is a essential part of experiencing Disney. It is a great place to try things that maybe you haven't had before. Not to mention it is a chance to sit down and take a break.

I am trying to get Ideas for what are the best foods to eat (or try for the first time) at EPCOT if I am only going to be there one day

Please provide me with your Favorite Snack, CS meals and TS meals.

This is what I've got so far



Must Have Snack
America - Funnel Cake (you can' get more American than that) (Funnel Cakes Cart)
Canada -
China - Ginger Ice Cream (Lotus Blossom Cafe)
France - chocolate mousse, Cheese Plate, warmed Ham and Cheese Croissant, Strawberry Tart (Boulangerie Patisserie ), Chocolate Crepe (Crepes des Chefs de France ), Grand Marnier Slushie & Grey Goose lemonade (???)
Germany -
Italy -
Japan - Fish flavored Food!, Shaved Ice (Kaki Gori)
Mexico - Churros, Frozen Margaritas (Cantina de San Angel, Cart),
Morocco - Mint Iced Tea
Norway - School Bread, Pretzel Bread, Strawberry Cream, Chocolate Cake (Kringla Bakery)
United Kingdom -


Better Restaurant
Le Cellier - Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup & Pretzel Bread
Coral Reef - Good atmosphere

Good Counter Service (CS)
Yorkshire Country Fish Shop - Fish and Chips
Sunshine Seasons
Lotus Blossom Cafe - tucked back out of the way, interesting snacks
Tangierine Cafe - Shawarma Platters big enough to share


Restaurants to Avoid
Electric Umbrella
Cantina de San Angel

I LOVE the funnel cake outside of the American Pavilion!
I see you have the Gran Marnier Slushies on your list...don't forget Frozen Margaritas outside of Mexico!

Our dinner at Coral Reef was wonderful -- food and service.

We loved the strawberry tart at Boulangerie Patisserie too!

Epcot is our favorite food place!!! We like LeCellier, Coral Reef, Chef's DeFrance and Teppan Edu. The CS at the Season's has something for everyone. The bakery in France is very good for a snack. The funnel cakes are okay not much different than we get at the fair here. Remember Beaver Tails from Canada?!?

For counter service I enjoy the Electric Umbrella because it's got a very good atmosphere.

If you like Mint Tea you will love either the hot or cold mint tea. I am also a big fan of the Fish and Chips. Also, if you like wine, stop at either the German or Italian wine shops for a glass.

My new favorite from my last trip:

Joy of Tea - China
Strawberry Oolong Tea Bao Bing Slush (non-alcoholic)

Very Refreshing... I got it three time over the course of our trip. Yum!!!

There is also a Mango Green Tea one, I don't like mango, so can't comment on it.

I forgot to mention that Electric Umbrella is one of the few counter service locations in the parks where you can get free drink refills, because you get the drinks yourself. So if your still thristy you don't need to pay for a 2nd drink once it's finished.

I wouldn't necessarily avoid Electric Umbrella. We've ate there several times and enjoyed it. It's mostly just burgers though.

I really enjoy the sweet pretzel with almonds at the Kringla Bakery in Norway.

One of the best restaurants on all of Disney's property is Bistro de Paris upstairs in France. It is not on the dining plan and discourages children by having no children's menu but the service and food are top notch and one of the few places to have a rare quiet meal at WDW. Their chocolate souffle is as good as the one prepared at V&A (IMO).

Best counter service is Tangierine Cafe at Morrocco.

My favorite snack is the Grand Marnier Orange slush at France but I also enjoy the Peach Bellini's in Italy.

Kaki Gori is a must and anything from Norway as a snack. Free soda samples at the Coco Cola exhibit. Fish and chips is also very good. We had some good food in the land pavillion.
