Did I have you at Dole Whip? This refreshing fan favorite has been plussed with Siesta Key Spiced Rum and it is awesome. It’s so exciting to see how Disney has added the food kiosks that are normally out during the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival in the fall for this spring’s Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. You can read more about the announcement here and get a complete list of the food and beverage kiosks here. They are also adding a Garden Passport: A Guide to Flora, Food and Fun this year as well. I love this idea so much, it helps to navigate the festival with ease. Listing all the topiaries, gardens, play areas, food and more. You can pick up your passports at the Festival Center and along the kiosks on the World Showcase.
Pineapple Promenade has some tasty offerings especially if you are a big fan of pineapple like I am. Not only do they have the sought after Dole whip but they have Pineapple Upside Down Cake, Pineapple Fruit Cup, Samuel Adams Cream Stout and the fabulous Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade (non-alcoholic). This lemonade has such a unique flavor that was so good! I had to have two of them. Not to mention the pretty edible flowers that they garnish it with. Too cute!

The Cottage: Savories, Trifles and Teas in UK has a huge variety of hot and iced British teas and beverages inspired by English roses. We enjoyed the Peach Cold Brewed Iced Tea, it had good flavor but needed to be sweeter. I had to try all the food choices at The Cottage, everything looked so yummy. We tried the
- Potato, Chive and Cheddar Cheese Biscuit with Smoked Salmon Tartare and Sour Cream
- Waterkist Farms Heirloom Tomatoes with house-made Mozzarella, Minus 8 Vinegar and Basil
- Baked Goat’s Brie with Kumquat Chutney
The Cheddar Cheese Biscuit was so flaky and warm. It practically melted in with the Salmon Tartare and was a great combination. Heirloom Tomato Salad was refreshing but just your regular kind of salad. Now, the Baked Goat’s Brie with Kumquat Chutney was AMAZING! I wanted to drink the Chutney by itself it was that good. I can’t wait to go back and have another.
What do you think of the new food kiosks addition to the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival?
