Today we have a special guest, Ashley Dickey with Reserve Orlando, sharing with us her top choices on where to find Cheap eats at Epcot. You can read more about her here. So without further ado, here’s Ashley!
One place you can really indulge inside Disney World Theme Parks is Epcot. Stroll around World Showcase, home to 11 countries, and sample delicacies and traditional treats simmering with distinct flavor. Bite into a piece of Italian margherita pizza before chowing on a Moroccan lamb-filled skewer. Some places are more expensive than others, though, meaning your meals can really add up. Where should you go to get the best cheap eats at Epcot? Follow this guide to find locations that will leave your stomach happy and your wallet full.
Mousse au Chocolat
Everything from a sweet treat to a full meal can be bought at Boulangerie, and it’s all delicious. There’s usually a line, but the wait is worth it. For bakery items like pastries, tarts, cheesecakes, éclairs and oh-so-much-more, you’ll pay less than $5. At lunch, a custardy ham and egg quiche in a flaky tart is only $6, while a ham and cheese croissant will set you back only $4.75. Baguette sandwiches, cheese platters and other traditional French bakery favorites are on the menu, too, and nothing costs more than $10.
Nothing says German food quite like a beer and a bratwurst. At Sommerfest, order an authentic German sausage on a chewy roll topped with sauerkraut. Add an Altenmünster Oktoberfest beer to wash it all down with. It’s the closest you’ll get to Germany this side of Florida, and it’ll only cost you $15 for both.
Lamb Shawarma Platter
Certainly one of my favorites, the Tangierine Café is an excellent value as servings are large and prices low. Plus, you can’t beat the spice-infused flavors of this Moroccan pavilion café. Sure, you’ll miss the mood lighting and belly dancing of their higher-end sister restaurant Marrakesh, but the food is just as good and the prices are even better. It’s healthy, too, which is rare for theme park fare. Opt for the chicken or lamb schwarma platter, served with a side of hummus, tabouleh, and Tangierine couscous salad with fresh Moroccan bread, then split it. At a cost of $14.95, it’s a cheap meal for two.
