If you are visiting Epcot at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, use this dining guide to plan your visit. Epcot’s World Showcase restaurants serve menu items representative of the cuisine of the countries represented, so you can “dine around the world” at Epcot. The restaurants are staffed with citizens of the countries represented, so this is a terrific way to get to know people from around the world.
Many of the full table service restaurants at Epcot are extremely popular, so make reservations up to 180 days in advance. There is a $10 credit card charge per person if you cancel within 24 hours of the reservation, but you can change the reservation for a future time. Make reservations in advance and check for the latest updates at Disney’s official dining website:
Quick service restaurants and kiosks offer additional opportunities to get authentic tastes from around the world. During the popular Food and Wine Festival in the fall, there are additional kiosks around Epcot that feature the food of even more countries. There are many special tasting events. This year’s festival is August 30 – November 12, 2018.
The diagram shows the relative locations of each of the permanent countries of Epcot. Mexico is to the left of the main entry from Future World as you face World Showcase, and Canada is to the right. The International Gateway entrance is between the United Kingdom, to the left as you enter, and France, to the right as you enter. The International Gateway entrance is most convenient if you are staying at or near Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort, Disney’s Boardwalk Resort, or the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts.
