My absolute favorite time to visit Epcot is during their many festivals. Epcot Festival of the Arts is one of the most fun ones because there is so much to do at the fest. Epcot Festival of the Arts takes place this year from January 18 through February 25 with access included with park admission.
There are multiple booths located throughout the park where you can sample different food and drink options. Because these tend to be pricey, it’s best to be selective of which items to try. On my recent trip to the festival, I tried some items that were absolutely delicious while others were so bad that I literally threw them away! To help you decide which items to try (or avoid), I’ve rated all the food and drinks that I tried from the festival.
I hope you enjoy my review of some food and drinks from Epcot’s Festival of the Arts!
Wild Mushroom Risotto: 8/10
The Masterpiece Kitchen- $9.25
The Wild Mushroom Risotto is a delicious, vegetarian-friendly option at the Festival of the Arts. This risotto has a wonderful zinfandel reduction with truffle shavings and is topped parmesan cheese. I highly enjoyed this dish, but the portion size was very small for the hefty $9 price tag.
Deconstructed Strawberry Cheesecake: 8/10
Deconstructed Dish- $6.25
The Deconstructed Strawberry Cheesecake is such a great addition to the Epcot Festival of the Arts because of its unique presentation. I absolutely love the layout of the dish with the sugar cookies, cheesecake, and strawberries all being separated. If you’re a cheesecake fan, you’ll enjoy this dessert. I love how refreshing the strawberries are, and I definitely recommend!
Molten Chocolate Cake: 9/10
L’art de la Cuisine Francaise- $6.25
Calling all chocolate fans!! We have a winner! While the Molten Chocolate Cake isn’t a super unique dessert, it is absolutely delicious. It’s basically like the Molten Cake at Chili’s, which I love! So definitely try this dessert if you’re craving chocolate like Anna and Elsa (cue the Frozen reference!).
Vanilla, Rose Water and Pistachio Panna Cotta: 6/10
Masterpiece Kitchen- $8
The Panna Cotta is a such a visually stunning dessert option at the Festival of the Arts. To be honest, I’m not really a big panda cotta fan just because of the texture, but if you are then this a really neat version with the rose water and pistachio flavors!
Vodka Rossini: 7/10
L’arte di Mangiare- $13
The Vodka Rossini is made up of vodka, strawberry purée, and prosecco. I expected this to be a sweet drink, but unfortunately it ended up being more tarte. It basically just tasted like prosecco with strawberry purée at the bottom of the glass. If you are in the mood for prosecco, then I would recommend this drink. However, if you’re looking for a sweet cocktail, I would most certainly skip it.
Frida Lychee Margarita: 5/10
La Artista Hambriento- $13.75
Before I get into the review of this margarita there are two things you should know about me. First, I LOVE margaritas. Second, I had never tried lychee before ordering this drink. Knowing those two things will help you understand my review of the Frida Lychee Margarita. I’ll start with telling you that I simply did not like this drink. I couldn’t taste any tequila in it, and it was overwhelmingly sweet! I suppose it was the lychee, but there was also a terribly off-putting taste to this “maragarita” (I hate to even call it a margarita because it certainly did not taste like one). Maybe if you’re a big fan of lychee you’ll like this drink, but for those of you who have never tried it before I highly recommend skipping this drink. I certainly wish I had.
Diego Dragonfruit Margarita: 5/10
La Artista Hambriento- $14.25
Here we are again with another margarita from the same booth. After disliking the Frida Lychee margarita so much, I really expected this Dragonfruit Margarita to save the day…. it sadly did not. When I took the first sip of this margarita, my faced cringed because of the taste. It took me a while to figure out what the strange taste was, but I think I finally figured out that it was the salt. I’m pretty sure that smoked salt was on the rim on the glass, and that was one of the most disgusting things I’ve ever tasted!! Once I wiped off the salt, the drink was bearable. However, it was still not a good margarita, and I ended up throwing it away. It was simply a sweet drink with no hint of tequila. If you are looking for a REAL margarita, I recommend skipping this booth altogether and going to Choza Margarita instead.
L’art de la Cuisine Francaise: $12.50
Finally a delicious drink!! The Frosé is hands down my FAVORITE drink from the Epcot Festival of the Arts! At every festival, the booth at France offers a different Frosé flavor. This year’s Festival of the Art’s flavor is peach and is made up of rosé, vodka, and peach pureé. Let me just tell you that this drink is what dreams are made of!!
