Epcot’s Holidays Around the World 2013

A few weeks ago, we reviewed one of the food items that debuted for Epcot’s Holidays Around the World: Promenade Refreshment’s Savory Seasonal Waffle. It wasn’t very good, at least not the one I ordered (I’ve heard some others have been executed better), but on a recent stroll around World Showcase, Matt and I stopped by so he could order the Toasted Marshmallow Cider. I also wanted to get pictures of all the other holiday menus and sample a few more items along the way. We grabbed a passport (which we didn’t have stamped along the way), and off we went on our tour.

Matt loves, loves, loves cider. Even though the day we visited the park was in the mid-80s in December, that crazy man still ordered a cup of hot cider. The toasted marshmallow flavor was very subtle, and more was an aftertaste than an up front flavor. It was pretty good, but a touch boring after a while. Maybe that was just the heat getting to us…

The Canada Beer Cart was offering Pecan Maple Bark, but there was no sign advertising it or any on display and now there’s a sign out.

Off to the Rose & Crown Beer Stand we went, where Matt ordered… you guessed it! More cider! This one is spiked with whiskey. We’ll have the actual review later on this and other items in this post, but I wanted to get the pictures and prices to you for reference should you find yourself in Epcot over the next few weeks. 🙂

There are a lot of great things to try and I can’t wait to share my thoughts on the items we ordered. I’ll likely be spending some more time at Epcot while Holidays Around the World continues, so I’ll be sure to update on any more items we might order!

Are you going to be at Epcot during the holidays? If you were in the World Showcase, which items would you like to try? Let us know!

  1. We’re in the area this week and I got to try the savory waffle at the Promenade. It tasted good but a bit messy to eat.
    I, too, love cider but have not tried any yet since it’s been so hot! I tried to get the hot cider at Prost yesterday – since it was a bit chilly – and the CM told me something was broken and the cider was actually cold… So I decided to skip. Will try again tonight. I must try the other options too.

  2. I think my comment from yesterday didn’t post… The internet connection here at the resort drops constantly.., 😦

    We’re in the area this week and being at Beach Club makes it very easy to go to World Showcase! So far I’ve tried the savory waffle from the promenade, several different cookies, and a few different ciders. I think the hot cider from the UK Pavillion is probably my favorite so far.

  3. Hi Ricardo! Sometimes legitimate comments make it into the spam folder, which I can’t access through the app. 😦

    We tried to order the cider from Prost! on Saturday, but were told they didn’t have it at all. UK’s was very tasty!
