Dining Around the World at Epcot

People can eat themselves out of house and home, eat until they can’t take another bite, or eat to their heart’s content. But eating around the world? It’s a thought that might make even the greatest gourmand wince.

Eating around the world is a much easier task if “the world” is Walt Disney World Resort, home to more than 100 theme park and resort table-service restaurants.

At the Vacation Kingdom’s numerous sit-down theme park restaurants, guests can find a wide range of fare and flair, from sushi at Tokyo Dining at Epcot to meatloaf at the 50’s Prime Time Cafe at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  This week we highlight International flavors at Epcot.

  • United Kingdom is home to the Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room, an authentic British pub featuring fish and chips, prime rib, meat pies and British beer and ales.
  • France features Les Chefs de France restaurant, operated by famous French chefs Paul Bocuse and Roger Vergé. Specialties include beef burgundy and fresh salmon.
  • Restaurant Marrakesh in Morocco uses exotic spices to make food flavorful, not hot. Belly dancers and Moroccan music add to the ambiance of this restaurant, where couscous and bastilla (fried ouarka pastry) are favorites. Tangierine Cafeserves salads and sandwiches with Moroccan flair.
  • If Japanese fare is preferred, visit Tokyo Dining or Teppan Edo, where chefs prepare beef, seafood and chicken entrees at the table.
  • Classic Italian decor makes a perfect setting at Tutto Italia Ristorante in which to enjoy fresh pasta dishes.  Or try the authentic pizzas at Via Napoli, the new Italian restaurant that joins Tutto Italia at the Italy pavilion.
