It’s been a full day as we’ve taken you with us LIVE to all the food booths, entertainment spots, and more during the 2021 EPCOT Festival of the Arts!
Along with the merchandise, scavenger hunt, hidden characters, and more, the food and drinks this year have been a real treat! While there are a whole lot of desserts, entrees, and sips to choose from, we’ve got a look at the most jaw-dropping and amazing dishes that we’ve seen during the festival’s opening!
Red Velvet Funnel Cake
There are a few spots around the park that aren’t technically food booths! But, you can still find additional offerings at some of the kiosks and quick-service spots around EPCOT. And, the Funnel Cake kiosk has one of the prettiest and most satisfying treats that we’ve seen this festival! The Red Velvet Funnel Cake combines colors that immediately had us wanting to try the dessert for ourselves…
…not to mention the fact that the funnel cake is topped with cream cheese icing and pixie dust! While the treat isn’t mega sweet, the cream cheese frosting adds just enough flavor to the treat to make it a winner at the American Adventure Pavilion!
While we saw the Lobster Chips on last year’s menu, the Refreshment Port has switched things up with the Lobster Poutine instead! The crispy fries are topped with citrus cream, lobster bisque cheese sauce, pickled jalapeños…
…and SO. MUCH. LOBSTER. It was almost hard to lift our fries with all the lobster, and we needed a fork handy to finish it! Although there was a hint of sweetness from the lobster and citrus cream, it was balanced wonderfully with all that cheese sauce and spiciness from the jalapeños!
Since the Festival of the Arts is all about the culinary, visual, and performing arts, it’s no surprise that at least ONE of the items at the food booths would allow guests to mix up their own dessert! And, over at Goshiki in the Japan Pavilion, you can find the Stone Garden…
…that comes with a separate tray of red bean mousse…
…that you mix up the chocolate rocks and arare rice cracker pebbles into for your own mini masterpiece! While the “red bean” mousse ingredient might sound completely different than most treats at the EPCOT Festival of the Arts, it has a flavor similar to cookies and cream to go with the rice crackers and chocolate.
Vanilla, Rose Water and Pistachio Panna Cotta
The Masterpiece Kitchen lives up to its name once again by bringing back a returning treat that is not only delicious, but GORGEOUS! The Vanilla, Rose Water and Pistachio Panna Cotta is shaped like an intricate, yet delicate rose with flavors that are just as light and creamy. Although you can taste the rose for a bit of floral taste, it complements the sweet Panna Cotta for a “masterpiece” of a dessert.
EVERYTHING at Vibrante & Vivido
The newest booth at this year’s EPCOT Festival of the Holidays is the Vibrante & Vivido booth located in between the Morocco pavilion and the France pavilion. Everything at the booth is inspired by the Imagineer Mary Blair, who helped create the colorful “it’s a small world” attraction. Whenever we sat down with all our drinks and treats, we had to take a second to admire how…well, VIBRANT they all were!
You can go “under the sea” with the Chilled Seafood Cocktail with Octopus, Scallops, Shrimp, Black Garlic Aïoli, Tomato-Coconut Sauce and Serrano-Lime Oil….
…dive into the Blue Corn Pupusa stuffed with Cheese and topped with Shredded Pork, Guajillo and Árbol Chile Sauce, Cabbage Slaw and Aji Amarillo Crema…
…and celebrate the festival with the Passion Fruit Mousse with Dragon Fruit Jam!
Plus, there’s a trio of drinks that will drive your tastebuds wild with the Coconut and Passion Fruit Smoothie (non-alcoholic)…
…Passion Fruit Daquiri (with alcohol)…
…and Frozen Piña Colada (also with alcohol)!
After we’ve hopped around the Festival of the Arts, we can’t get over how colorful the food and drinks are this year! As we continue to make our way around the parks, we’ll be sure to give you a look at all the must-have items you have to try ASAP!
