Seafood fans rejoice as you will want to take advantage of these items during Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival! In this booth review, I’ll share what I ate, my thoughts, and the pricing of the dishes I enjoyed.

We are well underway in celebrating the 2023 EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival. With only about a month left to enjoy, Disney has created delectable dishes worldwide. Guests can enjoy twenty-five different global marketplaces. When you visit, wear stretchy bottoms to indulge in the festival’s many creative and yummy foods.

This is one of my (Marisol’s) favorite festivals, and I am so happy that I could visit right before it ends in November! Luckily, I could try new dishes I had never enjoyed at the festival.

The Coastal Eats booth has been around for many years (since 2017), although the number of menu items changes occasionally. At one point in the festival in previous years, there were four dishes as opposed to today, where only two dishes are around.

New to this year’s booth is the Wildly Brut Cuvée, South Australia, which sells for $7.00 a glass, and the Cape Codder: Boyd & Blair Vodka with Cranberry, Pomegranate, and Lime for $12.00 a glass.

On a Thursday morning in early October, I walked to the Cast Member at the Coastal Eats booth, where I placed my order. I was surprised and thankful that there was no line as I was experiencing rumbles in my tummy a ‘la Winnie the Pooh!

Oysters Rockefeller

These three large oysters are prepared, significant in size, and did not disappoint. Most of the food served at the festival is set under heat lamps, which tends to change the consistency and flavor of the food. However, the opposite of this dish was true!

I was worried the oysters would be rubbery, but they were not! The garlic, spinach, and breadcrumbs enhanced the texture of the dish. The Oysters Rockefeller sells for $7.50. I recommend ordering this dish as it will satisfy you, and the price point is alright!

Lump Crab Cake with Aïoli and Vinegar Slaw

For $7.00, guests can order the Lump Crab Cake with Aïoli and Vinegar Slaw.  This is another dish that will not disappoint. As I spritzed the grilled lemon on top of the crab cake, I had a flashback to eating crab cakes in Monterey, California, near the ocean shore with its coastal air and breeze.

The dish radiates crab and is light on the stomach. I could have indulged in more of them, and my heart and stomach would have been quite content.

The Coastal Eats booth delivered one of the better food choices at this year’s International Food & Wine Festival. I would happily revisit this booth, especially on a warm, humid Florida day!

Will you be trying the Coastal Eats booth at this year’s festival?  Please share this article with a friend that will be visiting the festival and enjoys delectable seafood.
