Epcot to offer

Epcot is set to offer “Seasonal Tastes” during Holidays Around the World from November 25 through December 30.  Several special booths will be set up that allow you to sample festive dishes from around the wold!

Epcot has done a terrific job expanding from the Food and Wine Festival into a full featured dining experience with the Flower and Garden Festival, it’s now venturing more into the Christmas season favorites.  This sounds like a fun addition to me.  I’ll run straight for the chocolate pecan tart as pecan pie is my favorite!  I’ve to sample many others as well.

Sauerbraten from Prost! in Epcot Nov. 25-Dec. 30

Stop at Prost! in Germany for an artisan cheese plate or sauerbraten with red cabbage and spätzle. Drinks include alcoholic ciders, Williams Punch (hot), Caramel Kiss featuring Werther’s Caramel and glüwein (house-made hot spiced wine).

  1. Thanks for this info (along with the Xmas tree info at DS – sounds great!) Will any of these items be available for a snack credit like many of the offerings at F&W?
