Disney Date Night: Part 2 Around World Showcase


Epcot at night

Love is in the air! Wether you’ve been together for a long time or just swiped right...or maybe it’s left? Epcot is the perfect spot for a memorable date night. In this second part of our date night Disney series, we're exploring some incredible ideas to make your time at the most magical place on earth even more enchanting.


The great thing about Epcot is that not only can you find different vibes to suit your taste, but there's usually a festival happening during your visit which makes it even more unique.


Tipsy Duck

To start off the evening, let's grab a drink. If you're into cocktails, I've got some recommendations just for you. Go to the China pavilion and check out the Joy of Tea. They have this amazing drink called "Tipsy Ducks in Love" that you have to try! Another spot worth checking out is the America pavilion. Stop by Regal Eagle Smokehouse outdoor bar and try their delicious "Blackberry Moonshine Sour" or their refreshing "Tennessee Lemonade". Trust me, these drinks are absolutely delicious!


But if cocktails aren't your thing and you prefer soda or beer instead, then head straight to the United Kingdom pavilion and go to Rose and Crown! This place is paradise for beer lovers! Personally, I can never resist their classic "Black Velvet" or their tangy twist on cider called "Cider & Blackcurrent".



When you're in the United Kingdom, make sure to give a shoutout to our beloved "Binny" or raise a glass in his honor, depending on the latest twist in this crazy saga. If you know, you know!



Before you go for dinner, think about finding a chill spot where you can have a good conversation. One cool place that not many people know about is the waterfall at the Canada pavilion. Another option is to head over to the Morocco pavilion where there are lots of benches and tables to sit and chat. And if you're looking for some free entertainment that isn't too crowded, make sure to catch "Command Performance," an awesome British rock band playing hits from the 60s all the way up to the 90s, at the United Kingdom gazebo.


When it comes to dinner options at Epcot, there are so many choices that it can be overwhelming! If you're looking for a nice sit-down dining experience with a romantic atmosphere, you should definitely try Le Cellier Steakhouse in the Canada pavilion or Chefs de France in the France pavilion. Personally, I love going to La Cantina de San Angel in the Mexico pavilion. It has a fantastic vibe and if you time it right, you might even get to see the fireworks while enjoying your meal!


My suggestion: Why not ditch the whole sit-down meal thing and instead, take turns selecting some grub from the festival booths? Right now, they're hosting the awesome Festival of the Arts, which means you can treat yourself to some seriously amazing food.


One booth I highly recommend checking out is Pop Eats. They serve up this mind-blowing Tomato Soup with pimento cheese, bacon and a fried green tomato grilled cheese sandwich. It's absolutely drool-worthy! And let me tell you about another dish that blew our minds - the Red Wine-braised Beef Short Rib at Pastoral Palate. The flavors are freaking unbelievable!


Festival Eats

When it comes to dessert, why not keep the fun going by taking turns picking out various desserts and drinks to try? But if you're looking for something truly amazing, head over to the France pavilion and get yourself a Croque Glacé from L’Artisan des Glaces. It's absolutely mind-blowing!


To end a fantastic evening, you should definitely check out "Luminous: A Symphony of Us" at Epcot. It's the new mesmerizing nighttime show with fireworks that lights` up the World Showcase Lagoon. Find a cozy spot and enjoy the spectacle! If you didn’t catch the hint from the last post, once you're on a roll, why not keep it going? Head on over to Jellyrolls at the Boardwalk for some killer entertainment and a drink to top off your night.


Epcot

Whether you're in a long-term relationship or just starting out, this magical place offers endless possibilities for a memorable date night!
