My 2022 Epcot Food & Wine Festival To-Eat List

Food & Wine

The next best thing to being at Walt Disney World is fantasizing about being in Walt Disney World, and with that in mind, let’s talk about the 2022 Epcot Food & Wine Festival!

Every year, without fail, I carefully assemble a post that outlines what foods I plan to eat at the festival. It is always a joyous day when Disney releases the booth menus.

Do you, dear reader, find my shortlist as riveting as I do? Never mind! I’m doing it anyway because it serves as a handy cheat sheet when I’m actually in Epcot on those glorious, glorious November days. Having been blogging for so long now, I was bound to become self-referential anyway. Why not make it practical?

And with that…

MY 2022 EPCOT FOOD & WINE FESTIVAL TO-EAT LIST

Key: BOOTH | Item | Notes

EARTH EATS | IMPOSSIBLE Burger Slider with wasabi cream and spicy slaw on a sesame seed bun | Honestly I just love wasabi.

SHIMMERING SIPS | Berry sour ale mimosa | I love sours! Also that iridescent purple Corkcicle might be too pretty to not come home with me…

HAWAII | SPAM Musubi Nigiri with sushi rice, teriyaki-glazed SPAM, spicy mayonnaise, eel sauce, and nori | If you’ve had it, you know it’s amazing. Or should be if they do it right…

REFRESHMENT PORT | Maple cheesecake with whipped maple bourbon cheese and candied pecans | Bourbon cheese, you say? Color me intrigued.

CANADA | Canadian Cheddar and Bacon Soup served with a pretzel roll | I wonder if they’d just give me a bunch of pretzel rolls?

IRELAND | Roasted Irish Sausage with colcannon potatoes and onion gravy | Make whatever sausage joke you need to make and keep it moving, buster.

IRELAND | Bunratty Mead Honey Wine | So is it wine or is it mead? I hope it’s mead and I’m ready to risk it.

Wine at Epcot

BRAZIL I Pão de Queijo: Brazilian cheese bread | I know Erika says it’s the stuff of the Brazilian freezer aisle but I still love it.

BELGIUM | Belgian Waffle with warm chocolate ganache | Every year I put a waffle on my list and every year I miss it. Maybe this is the year?

MOROCCO | Stone-baked Moroccan Bread with hummus, chermoula, and Zhoug dips | Moroccan flatbread is That Girl.

MOROCCO | Cider Flight | One of them has HIBISCUS?!

HOPS & BARLEY | Beer Flight | Particularly I am drawn to this strawberry and lime beer, but pumpkin is always a good choice as well.

GERMANY | Roasted Bratwurst in a pretzel roll | PRETZEL ROLL! PRETZEL ROLL!

INDIA | Crispy Paneer with mango-curry ketchup | Duh.

INDIA | Chicken Tikka Masala with fennel-spiced yogurt and naan bread | Unless reviews come in bland and then I don’t want it.

[Winner of most items on this list] INDIA | Mango Lassi with Sōmrus Chai Cream Liqueur | Another one that’s dependent upon reviews. I can always get it without the liqueur.

THE NOODLE EXCHANGE | Playalinda Brewing Company Yaupon Brothers Green Tea Pale Ale | You lost me with pale ale but reeled me back in with green tea. We’ll see.

BREW-WING | Beer Flight | In it for the watermelon beer, frankly.

THE FRY BASKET | Fry Flight | Double duh.

THE FRY BASKET | Salty Dog Cocktail: Boyd & Blair Vodka with grapefruit juice, ginger, simple syrup, and lime with a salted rim | God, I just love salt.

FLAVORS FROM FIRE | Banh Mi Bao with char-grilled Asian skirt steak, chicken liver aïoli, pickled vegetables, and cilantro | If you steam it, I will come. (I SAID keep it moving, buster!)

MAC & EATS | Traditional Macaroni & Cheese with herbed panko | Why mess with perfection?

MEXICO | Capirotada de Chocolate: Abuelita chocolate bread pudding served with a chocolate crème anglaise | BREAD PUDDING!!!!

FRANCE | Strawberry Rose Mimosa: Pol Remy Sparkling Wine, orange juice, and Monin Strawberry Rose Syrup | I hope it’s hella botanical. Also the drinks in France are always so pretty!

ITALY | Italian Margarita with tequila and limoncello | I know Italy is traditionally a Must Skip but this sounds potentially good?

CHINA | Jasmine Draft Beer | It’s hella botanical.

Jasmine Beer and bao bun

JAPAN | Teriyaki Chicken Bun: Steamed bun filled with chicken, vegetables, and teriyaki sauce | That’s right, baby, steam it!

JAPAN | Takoyaki: Octopus, green onion, and cabbage bites topped with tonkatsu sauce, bonito flakes, and nori | Let us be adventurers.

  1. What a good idea to make a printed list. Every year I make a list in my head and then I obviously forget it. Every year for Flower and Garden I want to try the Violet lemonade and every year I forget that too!
