The amazing aspect about Epcot is that it has two parks which are squeezed into one. There is Future World that embraces future technologies and science followed by World Showcase which displays different cultures from all over the world. It is fun and an educational experience. However, the attractions do not cover all the activities to participate in within Epcot; the food is also tasty, and the dining experience in some of the restaurants make a truly magical experience. There are so many incredible restaurants which can be found throughout EPCOT’s World Showcase, and it may be hard to pick the favorites. However, to help you discern which to choose when making your next Advanced Dining Reservation, here are our DaD top ten…
1. La Hacienda de San Angel
The La Hacienda de San Angel is a concealed gem of the World Showcase. The restaurant serves so many Mexican favorites such as shrimp tacos and the famous chicken al pastor. The Salsa and complimentary chips are sumptuous and authentic, and their margaritas cannot be missed. All that being said, this restaurant is better experienced in the evening just before Illuminations or the Reflections of Earth begins.
2. Via Napoli
When you are searching for the best pizza in all of Disney World, then you need not look further than Via Napoli. The restaurant is located behind the incredible Italy pavilion and is home to the best creative Italian-inspired entrepreneurs and thin crust pizza. The pizzas are made to serve two individuals, but the pies are so large that they may easily serve a regular hungry family of four individuals.
3. Teppan Edo
This hibachi restaurant offers diners both an exciting show and an excellent dinner. As guests and, at least, seven of their closest family, friends, or new acquaintances sit around a grill table, the chefs of Japanese origin entertain them with their impressive knife skills. The chefs make a volcano from onions, and make a Mickey from vegetables. Where else in the world can you see that!!
4. Chefs de France
This restaurant is the closest best thing to sitting on a sidewalk belonging to a Parisian café. The view is simply great and is similar to what is obtained in French restaurants.
5. Le Cellier
A trip to World Showcase is barely complete without experiencing dinner at this famous restaurant which is modeled after a Canadian wine cellar. The restaurant is known for its mushroom risotto and filet mignon but is more famous for its beer soup and cheddar and pretzel breadsticks. And oh that yummy, yummy poutine…
6. Akershus Royal Banquet Hall
If you travel with your family which includes young ladies, or you wish to meet the Disney Princesses, Akershus is the place to go! Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all served there in the Norway pavilion.
