World Showcase in EPCOT is full of attractions, dining, shopping, and more! This unique Disney World destination has something for just about everyone, but it can be a bit overwhelming deciding what to do and see — especially if you’re on a limited schedule!
That’s why we’re picking our top spots in each of the Pavilions!
Whether it’s a ride or our favorite place to grab a snack, we’re sharing some of our favorite Disney World must-do’s in the “back half” of EPCOT!
Starting in Mexico, no trip to World Showcase is complete without a stop at La Cava del Tequila. Nestled inside the pyramid in the Mexico Pavilion, this spot has a wide variety of tequilas to sample. You can also try one of their many margaritas (including their famous Avocado Margarita!). It can get busy here during the day, so visit early if you want to avoid a wait!
Next up is the Norway Pavilion, home to Frozen Ever After! This boat ride used to be the Maelstrom, but was replaced to feature the hit Disney animated film. Obviously this ride is a hit for all the Frozen fans in your party, but Disney really did a great job with this attraction’s transformation.
The China Pavilion in World Showcase is a perfect example of just how gorgeous some of the attractions can be! This is one of our favorite Pavilions to simply walk around and take in all the sights and sounds. The details inside the Pavilion’s temple are stunning and are a must do when you’re passing through!
When one is in the Germany Pavilion, one must order something from Karamell-Küche! Here is where you’ll find authentic Werther’s Original caramel popcorn, in addition to a wide variety of caramel treats. We recommend you try the boozy caramel squares for adults and just about everything else for the kids and the kids at heart!
Italy is another stunning Pavilion in World Showcase, but it also features some of our favorite dining options in EPCOT! Via Napoli has some of the best pizza in all of Disney World, and Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar has an awesome laid-back atmosphere if you want to enjoy some wine and small plates.
We’ve reached the halfway point in our trip around World Showcase! The American Adventure Pavilion is home to a show of the same name, which is our top pick! The exhibits outside of the American Adventure show are also worth taking a few extra minutes to peruse. The American Adventure is nearly a half hour long, providing your feet a much-needed break in some air conditioning!
The Japan Pavilion is perhaps our favorite place to shop in all of World Showcase! That’s because the Japan Pavilion is where you’ll find Mitsukoshi, which is filled with unique Japanese artwork, souvenirs, and more! Definitely check out their pearls! The Kawaii Cute Culture exhibit is also a fun stop in your tour around World Showcase.
The Morocco Pavilion, like China, is simply beautiful! The detail of this Pavilion is our favorite thing about Morocco. The Pavilion was actually designed in collaboration with the country’s government — a singular distinction for a World Showcase Pavilion. Keep venturing further and further in the Pavilion next time you visit; you may be surprised how far back it goes!
France is one of our favorite foodie stops around World Showcase. A trip to Les Halles is a must, especially in the morning! You can find delicious favorites here like macarons, cheese boards, and full baguettes! For dessert later in the day, stop by L’Artisan des Glaces for some tasty ice cream or, for the adults, some ice cream martinis!
If you’re on the hunt for an authentic U.K. experience, look no further than Rose & Crown Pub. While the Pavilion also features a sit down restaurant by the same name, the pub is where you’ll stop by for a quick round of drinks in a lively bar atmosphere.
At long last, we arrived at our final stop in World Showcase, Canada! This Pavilion has a wonderful ambiance, complete with a roaring waterfall. In fact, the Canada Pavilion is a great spot if you’re looking to escape the often busy foot traffic in World Showcase. Then, of course, there’s Le Cellier, the signature Table Service restaurant. We recommend you order the Cheddar Cheese Soup (it’s perfect with restaurant’s pretzel rolls)!
