Oh EPCOT, home of all the awesome Festivals. From the Food and Wine Festival to Flower and Garden, the Festival of Arts and International Festival of the Holidays… EPCOT is the place for celebrating.
But what do you do on the few days out of the year EPCOT is not celebrating a festival? Isn’t there anything for a grown-up to enjoy? Can’t we party like it is 1999 even when there is not a festival in place?
Yes, yes we can! Here are some of my off-festival menu items that are off the main path, meant for the adulting adult who works hard, and parties harder (occasionally) just like myself.
First off, Mexico. Everyone knows about the oh so famous Choza de Margarita stand added just a few years ago. But what you may not realize, deep inside the Aztec pyramid lies one of the best tequila bars in Orlando, La Cava del Tequila.
From tequila flights to the most flavorful fruity margaritas to Chips and Queso with chipotle salsa, get a Margarita on the rocks because this place, well it ROCKS!
Continue traveling around the world to visit my second favorite drinking destination, Japan! Who loves snow cones? We all do! Who loves adult snow cones?? Every time I mention this concoction to my big kid friends their eyes light up and their curiosity immediately peaks. Just outside to the left, when facing Japan, lies a hidden gem, Kabuki Cafe. When passing by, it is not hard to miss the window full of the rainbow of giant snow cones if you look. But what you do not immediately see is the nummy, nummy Alcoholic Shaved Ice called a Sake Mist. Just try it! Super amazing on those hot, Florida days!
Staying in Japan, there is another off the beaten path kiosk holds some adult beverages containing some of the tastiest, out of this world, fruit blends. Try the Tokyo Sunset. A fellow Main Streeter introduced me to it and I am hooked. Equally amazing is the Violet Sake. Delish!
What are your favorite spots around EPCOT you like to visit in the Festival lull?
